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.

Worn out batteries can be replaced even if they are not swappable. By the time battery wear & tear becomes an issue there won't be a warranty left on the phone so cracking it open should not be an issue as long as you know wtf you are doing.
Battery life is not why I prefer phones with swappable batteries. My reasons are:
1. I NEVER have to leave the phone sitting on a charger overnight. I simply swap out the dead/low battery for a fresh one. The dead one goes into a desk charger.
2. Spare batteries are dirt cheap. I can get 3 of them, plus a charger for about 40 bucks on ebay. So what if they are cheap-ass Chinese knockoffs. They work just fine.
3. I can pop in an oversized battery for those times when I can't be arsed to change batteries a few times per week. There are monster 7700 mAh batteries out there for the SGS4. Bulky, yes, but I don't have to charge the battery for a solid week.
4. I never have to worry about breaking my warranty for cracking open the phone. Not really an issue if your phone is old, but you really don't want to mess with the warranty on a new phone you just paid $700+ for.
I would never trade my 64GB SDCard for cloud storage. Just having my stuff with me at any time regardless of the availability of cell service or wifi is a comfort to me.
