Earlier this month, LG revealed its latest attempt to capture the smartphone market with the G2. It's a high-end smartphone that's unique in that it places the volume control buttons on the back of the device. Beyond that, it's your basic high-end smartphone.
Well, LG probably takes exception to the G2 being called just another high-end smartphone, and it has crafted a 4 minute video to prove otherwise. It showcases all the unique features of the LG G2, beyond its backside buttons, to prove that it has what it takes to rumble with the big players.
Some of the features include a 5.2-inch full HD display, a 2.26 GHz Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, Hi-Fi sound and a guest mode. One of the more interesting features is that you only need to "knock" on the display to wake up the device from sleep mode, and another "knock" will put it back to sleep.
Here's the full video complete with middle class white people being way too happy:
So, the LG G2 might not be so average after all. It does present some gimmicks that help set it apart from the pack. That might not be enough, however, as LG doesn't have the kind of brand awareness as Samsung, and it lacks the strong celebrity endorsement that HTC has. It does, however, have the advantage of being known for producing quality devices, like the Nexus 4.
In other LG news, the company will also be attempting to take on the tablet market later this year with the LG G Pad 8.3. It will apparently fulfill the wishes of random street wanderers.[Image: LGMobileHQ/YouTube]
