Posted Aug 7, 2013

LG has announced their new, extremely powerful smartphone called the LG G2.  The G2 will be available through AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless in the next few weeks.  The G2 will have the power and volume buttons moved from the edges of the phone to the back center.  The specs of the phone include a 5.2-inch 1080p IPS screen, 2.26GHz Qualcomm, Snapdragon 8974 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera (covered with sapphire glass), a 2.1-megapixel front camera, 32GB of internal storage (24GB usable), and a 3000mAh capable of 1.2 days of life.  The phone does not have microSD though.

The G2 hardware is not the only exciting part of the phone.  It also has Instant Access to QuickMemo and the Camera.  Holding the Volume Up button for 3 seconds opens QuickMemo.  Holding the Volume Down button for 3 seconds will launch the camera.  The Volume Down button acts as the Shutter button as well.  The phone also supports double tap to unlock or put the phone to sleep.

The G2 has a 9 multi-point auto-focus when taking a picture.  The LG G2 has an Audio Zoom.  When zooming into into someone in a video, the audio record zooms in and listens to them accurately and blocks out other sound.  The G2 is the first smartphone that can play 24bit, 192kHz FLAC and WAV files.

The guest mode of the phone supports guest profiles so that you can share your phone with a kid or friend without worrying about them messing with your apps.  You can answer a call by putting the phone up to your ear and it will answer automatically.  The LG G2 can work as an infrared remote control so that you can control your TV by aiming the TV remote at the G2 infrared port.
