All about LG G2

LG G2

The LG G2 was announced on August 7th 2013 during a special event in New York. As the company’s main flagship for 2013, the G2 didn’t fail to impress with a clean design and LG’s first attempt at placing the power and volume buttons on the back of the phone. This trend was successfully carried out to other LG models.

The G2 packs a 5.2″ screen in a slim body with small bezels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 3000mAh stepped battery, a 13MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization. Among the device’s significant features were KnockOn, a double tap to wake or sleep the screen, and AudioZoom which would let you focus the sound in a video to a specific direction and area.
