Carriers have confirmed to SmartHouse that the device which has been described as "significantly superior" to the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One will go on sale in the third week of October.
The device comes with Android OS, v4.2.2 (Jelly Bean); 5.2" Full HD IPS LCD display with zero gap touchscreen, (1080 x 1920) pixels; light weight: 143g; dimensions (138.5 x 70.9 x 8.9) mm; 13 MP camera, autofocus with optical image stabilization (OIS).
Equipped with an expansive 1080p display and 13-megapixel camera. CNet said LG's placement of the G2's power and volume buttons..doesn't ruin the experience. Indeed, with its beastly specs and ultrafast processor, LG is definitely putting its gloves on for this smartphone battle.
Digital Trends said" with the G2, LG is stepping up to the plate. This is a powerful phone with a myriad of simple, but useful new features. Audiophiles and spec junkies should flock to it".
"The first time you set eyes on the LG G2, you're impressed. It looks like "the" smartphone we've been working toward for a few years now. The screen is nearly edge-to-edge, the device is dead thin at 8.9mm, and there isn't a button in sight. From the front, there are no buttons on the G2. The navigation buttons - Back, Home, Menu - are onscreen and the power and volume controls are . not there. But you don't really need them most of the time. A quick double tap on the screen will wake the G2 up from its slumber.
An LG Australia executive said "A number of publications have praised the new G2 we will have it on sale in Australia in mid-October".
