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.

Captive batteries just freak me out. They go bad, a lot. It's a fact.
My friend's battery failed like last week. It would get to around 30% then suddenly power off. He got a replacement for like $10. If his phone had a captive battery, he would have been screwed.
I remember on my old GS2, I noticed the battery developed this hump-shape on one side, a sure sign it was starting to fail internally. But replacing it was a no-brainer.
Two years plus of constant use is a LOT to ask of these smartphone batteries. And it's a major pain in the ass if you have to replace it, unless it's removable.

I've never had a battery problem ever with a cell phone let alone a smartphone. My wife has not either. Now I rarely drain my battery below 50% so that gives me some more cycles but that doesn't explain my wife's battery life cause she's drains hers down to dead quite often. And her batteries last the entire two years. As a matter of fact, my old HTC Incredible is still on its original battery (3 yo now) and the present owner of that phone just recently switch to an iPhone. That owner didn't have a problem with the battery either (I occasionally asked about the phones performance).
