Crazy fast and powerful

Fully tailored and tightly integrated with the next G series platform, the Snapdragon 800 processor in the LG G2 is designed to deliver blazing fast web browsing, eye-popping graphics, seamless connectivity as well as an unmatched multimedia experience.

Already, through a combination of the face-melting speed and power of the Snapdragon 800 and the G2’s built-in 2GB of RAM, the LG G2 has been reaching incredible speed in performance tests, making it one of the fastest Android smartphones available, ready to take on your most demanding tasks.

More functionality, less battery drain

Along with incredible speed, the Snapdragon 800 processor in the new G2 enables cutting-edge technologies that extend the battery life and support GPS and GLONASS navigation satellites, which make for quicker and more accurate location finding and less time spent in your car waiting for the GPS to “find” you. The new Snapdragon 800 processor is also designed to give the LG G2 access to 4G LTE A (Advanced) networks that give smartphones double the data speeds in select areas.

Looking slim and sharp

Ultra sleek, the LG G2 has no front or side buttons (the volume controls are on the back) and is the first smartphone with LG’s new ultra thin 5.2-inch full HD LCD display. It comes with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and a 13- megapixel OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) camera.
