LG shows off new high-end smartphone

LG Electronics has unveiled a new flagship smartphone called the G2. The design of the G2 places all of the buttons on the rear of the device -- the Rear Key concept springs from LG designers recognizing that the larger phones became, the more difficult it was to access side keys. LG moved the main buttons to the back of the phone and located them where the user's index finger naturally rests.

The LG G2 features a 5.2-inch full HD resolution display. The phone also features a very thin bezel on the side that's only 2.65 mm thick. The phone comes equipped with a blazing Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor operating at 2.26 GHz. Feeding that hungry beast is a 3000 mAh internal battery promising more than a full days use per charge.

The G2 also has a 13-megapixel camera on the rear featuring optical image stabilization technology. The G2 is also the first smartphone on the market to utilize 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi playback of also to of audio content offering sound superior to CD-quality.

The G2 can be had in 16GB or 32GB storage capacities, and runs the Android 4.2.2 operating system. Unfortunately, the G2 doesn’t include a microSD slot, so you’re out of luck if you want to expand storage beyond what’s available from the factory.
The LG G2 will roll out over the next eight weeks over 130 wireless carriers in South Korea, North America, Europe, and other world markets.

No Thanks... I'll pass

No thank you.. LG will never get another dime of my money. I bought the G2X when it was their flagship and they botched that release totally. Their updates for the device never came. For a dual-core device, not having ICS or JB for the device is an insult to the hardware. Now, before people start chiming in with "I've got ICS.. I've got Hackfest" There is NO SINGLE ROM out there for the G2X that has full hardware acceleration AND a working modem. LG (and to a point nVidia) screwed the pooch with this one. Bought myself the SGS4 and haven't looked back.

Funny you mentioned "haven't looked back" since that is what I have come to expect from mid-range (or lower) LG products. I'm sure their high-end mobile screens are as nice as people say they are. On the other hand, I have a few LG products that miss huge on expected features/performance and I can not get any help from support. So now I am skeptical to acquire another LG branded device, especially since the last cell phone I had was riddled with bugs and the carrier (and LG) were quick to pass the blame towards the other party like a idiotic ping pong match. Q: "Disappointed?" A: "Most definitely."
