Hands on with the LG G2

It’s sleek, thin, powerful and most importantly—intuitive. The LG G2, powered by an insanely fast and multi-tasking Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 800 processor, is made for people that could use some serious speed and performance. Its ergonomic design fits snugly in your hand while breaking smartphone convention with rear-key buttons logically placed where your fingertips meet your phone. The LG G2 maintains its powerhouse of a reputation with a specially engineered and efficient battery, beautiful display, crisp camera functions and exclusive software to make even your most hectic days genuinely better.

Forget your charger at home? No sweat. The LG G2’s battery is engineered to complement its slim shape while still maintaining efficiency with Silicon Oxide Plus technology (SiO+) that maximizes battery life.

There’s nothing but superior clarity to go around on the LG G2’s 5.2-inch Full HD and high-resolution IPS display. This beautiful screen brings out the best and brightest colors, cinematic scenes and extraordinary graphics for the richest, hours-on-end, can’t-get-off-your-couch gaming experiences.

No need to worry about shaky hands because the G2’s 13-megapixel camera comes fully loaded with two-axis optical image stabilization and multi-point-auto-focus to capture the most pristine pictures and HD videos, plus its lens is made with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass that is designed to render your G2’s camera unharmed after any photo shoot.

The G2 also has some great features that help you get things done quickly:

  • QSlide Function lets you quickly access the apps you want with a pull down navigation bar that slides over the main screen while still allowing you to see through its semi-transparent window you can adjust for viewing less or more of what’s in the background.
  • Slide Aside lets you switch between three different apps in just a swipe and a tap.
  • If you can’t pick just one photo to send, Clip Tray lets you enjoy all your photos on one clipboard so you can quickly copy and paste multiple items at a time to emails, posts and text messages.
  • QuickRemote is the ultimate universal remote app that lets you control your compatible TV, set-top box, audio system, DVD and Blu-ray player all from the comfort of your couch.
  • Because the power button’s on back, LG thought about giving you a more convenient and intuitive way to open your phone without picking it up. With the KnockOn feature, simply “knock” twice on the screen with your fingertip to wake the display and get going.

If you’re looking for a phone that speeds things up instead of slowing you down, the G2 will keep you connected.
