lg-g2-review-01

Ever since LG introduced the Optimus G, the company has aggressively pushed the boundaries of Android handset hardware and software. The G2 can be seen as the successor of the original G, and it comes only six month after the LG Optimus G Pro, which is a large-display (5.5”) handset. With a display size of 5.2”, the LG G2 places itself somewhere between the Optimus G and the G Pro, and comes with a powerful Snapdragon 800 processor which is anywhere between 25% to 50% faster than the previous Snapdragon 600, depending on which benchmark you look at. More importantly, LG has made some important changes in the phone ergonomics with controls placed in the back, along with many user interface shortcuts and optimizations. In this review, I will tell you how it feels to use the G2 in the real world. Ready?

Context

Before we dive into the review, let me tell you how I use my phone: I don’t call much, not even 5mn a day. However, I check my emails and social networks updates very often. I like to take photos and share some of them right away. Since I work with it, email productivity is important to me, so is a readable calendar. I don’t play mobile games much (except with the SHIELD maybe), but I enjoy watching movies in bed from time to time.This is important because “how” we use our phones will determine how we evaluate at them. I’ll do my best to give you an accurate picture of what it is, so that you can figure out if it will work for your unique situation.
