LG G2 takes on the Galaxy S4 with user-inspired design and convenient QuickWindow case

This story is sponsored by LG. PhoneArena's opinions in this article have not been affected in any way!





LG has recently introduced its newest flagship smartphone, the LG G2, and we've got to admit - this phone is a real powerhouse thanks to its gigantic, 5.2" 1080p screen, ultra-fast Snapdragon 800 processor and a really, really long feature list.

But what's going to set the LG G2 apart from the competition? With its biggest rival, the Galaxy S4, being a pretty serious contender, the G2 sure has to pack some serious punch, and it'll certainly take more than impressive specifications. The LG G2 already has an amazing specs sheet, with many of its characteristics easily outclassing its opponents, but it looks like LG wanted to go even further, which is why it has listened to user feedback when designing the G2. That's why the power/lock and volume keys are positioned right there on the back of the device - LG claims this makes for a significantly more comfortable positioning. What's more, the company has also created the innovative QuickWindow case, which will prove to be quite useful when you want to quickly check the time or weather, play music, answer a call and more, without even opening the case!

Due to its desire to put more focus on the user experience part of things, LG has produced these two promo videos, which will surely get you interested in the new G2. Be sure to check them out if you want to learn more about the G2's user-inspired design and the ambitious QuickWindow case!

hahahahaha are you kidding me? I have nothing against LG but you can see this phone resembles 90% S4's design, it resembles 70% TouchWiz in software side and it resembles 95% Samsung's Smart Cover. What a ridiculous comment you have just made lolz

I am not really attracted to LG G2 Design and it seems alot similar to GS4 design too... but as a flagship phone LG G2 is pretty awesome. design wise i choose Nokia,HTC,Sony,Apple etc

that's a waste of power because lg's display is not amoled. all of the display is still firing up even if only a portion of it is used. they should've used amoled if they planned on doing something like this.

I prefer to look at my Natural Colors IPS Display than look at a crappy over saturated with no natural colors and even had problems to bring up the Blue, Green and Yellow... maybe you didn't notice that the AMOLED loose colors with the use everyday beside the IPS Still Solid ever. Anyway IPS right now its bringing more Visibility at Sunlight and had More Brights.

And I prefer deep Black's without back light bleeding! Crappy over saturated colours? You can change that and choose move mode! But why? That's not TV!

So you like OLED because of "deep black", but you don't care about the rest colours?

OLED also says "bye!" because of OLED's short lifespan. :)

I have that problem with Galaxy s2 but with my Note2 I don't see any "burn-in"

All OLED based displays may get "Burn-In" effect because of Organic Compounds used in making OLED, it doesn't matter what model is your phone. Same with short lifespan.

I don't have anything against Samsung and talking about the OLED, I don't say that OLED is bad idea, I even believe that there is a big feature for similar technologies like OLED, but not for today while no one has improved organic compounds which are used in OLEDs.

There is two things I don't like about g2 1st the bottoms are on the screen that makes it somehow boring and make the design uncomfortable .they should take out the lg logo and put some bottoms there 2nd. Amount of blotware that lg puts in g2 makes the snapdragon 800 act like snapdragon 600

First, if they take out the LG logo, how do people know which brand I'm using? Unlike iPhones and Nexuses, they are recognizable. Second, those aren't bloatwares. Slide Aside let's you do multitasking, KnockOn let's you tap twice on the screen to wake it up, so on and so forth.

But here in Philippines Nexus are not totally recognized except Samsung which you see it everywhere. I really hate Samsung because of making such weak smartphone like galaxy fame which you can even buy a midrange specs in such low price.

Stupid don't buy Samsung products then, Samsung is not forcing you to buy their products.

The button design is nothing short of awesome. No one can complain that their fingers are there whenever you hold the phone. Accidental pressing is the only argument you can make which is a bad argument. YES the design besides the button placement is nothing new, it's a smartphone. The only company that really changes things up is HTC. The design still has a new feel to it. The battery saving technology is pretty sweet, matched with the more efficient S800. The features built into the LG are also useful and smart. I tip my hat to LG on this one. It's a beautiful phone regardless of the original design. All phones have the same shape and usually are black.

Talking about the commercial, length of the first LG G2 commercial trailer is 1 minute and 27 seconds, but actual product we can see only for ~ 8 seconds, for the rest of time they are just showing us beautiful things and playing a nice music, in other words creating emotional manipulation which is almost nohow related with actual product. It is the same as show us photo with a cute kitten and then show us photo with a phone and say "Look how cute is this kitten and now look there is a phone, now go and buy the phone.". I understand that it is marketing but in my opinion it is very banal and cheap trick! :)
