LG G2 review

With the G2, it seems like LG took a lot of cues from its Korean counterpart and built what many called a Galaxy S4 clone. It's large, made of lots of plastic, shaped similarly and is jam-packed with more features than a single person can handle.

Super fast processor
Ultra long lasting battery
Mega bright, sharp display
Thin,light,compact design
Super-slim Bezels
Rear key innovation which I wonder why no one thought of sooner...
Truckload of USEFUL software features

A beautiful 5.2" 424 PPI full HD IPS display with the standard RGD matrix which sports 2 million more sub pixels than the galaxy S4's display, it can't get any sharper and as an added bonus, the display is super bright at 450 nits so you can be sure that when ourdoors the displays beauty will not fade. It has great viewing angles so you can watch a video with a buddy and the display has some galaxy-esque features like samsungs smart stay which do exactly what the galaxies do.

This display does an excellent job of balancing the colours to make them look more true to life and the contrast rivals even that of the super amoled screens.

Whats more is that the screen occupies as much of the front of the device as possible, reducing the dimensions of the device to just a little bit bigger than the HTC one which has a display 0.5 inches smaller than it.

Battery Life:

Packing a non removable 3000mAH battery which doesent seem like much when you think that the large display and super fast processor will gobble up in an hour. But do not underestimate this phone as the snapdragon 800 processor has dynamic power sensing which maximises battery life and it really works as I managed 14 hours of heavy use and an entire night on standby and by heavy use I mean benchmarking, gaming, watching videos, more benchmarking and basically way more than the average user does.

The next day, I used it like how an average user would use it- Texting, quite some youtubing, phone calls and some light gaming and I was just blown away. I still had 53% battery left after 8 hours!

The Processor:
Featuring the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad core 2.26GHz processor, the LG G2 is the fastest phone you can find and in all my usage I felt not one second of lag, not one stutter at all. I downloaded an app and as it was installing opened and closed every other app I had but to no avail. This phone just cannot be slowed down.

Not just is it a heavy lifter, its fuel efficient too, just like i said above.

I reckon, there a'int no app that can slow down this here phone!

Diving right into what powers the LG G2 and makes it purr, you'll first notice a 5.2-inch 1920 x 1080 display, which gives us a 424 PPI density. The chipset inside is a Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800, with a 2.26GHz quad-core Krait 400. In terms of processing power, it seems that the G2 is in no short supply.

It comes in 16GB and 32GB variants, with 2GB RAM. Connectivity includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, Infrared port and 4G LTE.

Software Features:
Qslide - A small resizeable, transparency adjustable, overlaid application which runs on top of whatever you are doing to multitask. Can be used to open a web browser and calculator at the same time for example, so you can type in numbers as you see them pop up.

Slide aside - A more efficient multitasker than androids stock multitasker which is used by using three fingers to swipe to the left, storing the application in the state you left it, and up to three apps can be slid away at a time. To access them just swipe with three fingers to the right and tap on the app you want to open.

Knock knock - LG lets renders the power button useles in turning off and on the screen because now, with a double tap to the display, the screen pops to life!
