LG finally took the wraps off the G2 today in New York City. Due to a plethora of leaks, there wasn’t much to learn about the G2 other than a few UX features. The 5.2-inch Full HD IPS display is absolutely gorgeous and the device appears to be pretty snappy thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC. Specs aside, the G2 is about “Learning from you” with many customization features such as slide-to-slide to making things really quick and easy with Text Link.
The 5.2-inch display is very big, so one handed use is always a concern. LG has your back. With the backside volume and power buttons, it will be easy for you to use this massive phone with one hand. LG found that most people keep set their index finger at the back of the phone when using it so it seemed natural to put the controls there. Of course the .10-inch bezel helps keep the overall size at bay.
Other new features include KnockOn, which allows you to turn on your display with a knock knock on the display. Answer Me will turn down your ringer and answer your phone automatically as you bring it closer to your ear. You will also find some of the familiar stuff like QSlide and QRemote (on G Pro). It’s time to stop the talking and see what this beast is all about. Hit the break for the complete hands on.
