LG G2, running on Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Processor, comes with all the buttons on the rear of the device.
The Korean device maker is trying to position this feature as the innovation of LG G2. Will it put the latest smartphone on backseat especially if it needs to compete with Samsung and Apple.
LG says it’s difficult to properly access the side keys. This experience is the mother of innovative Rear Key concept.
If you have LG G2, the 5.2-inch Full HD phone, there’s no need to look at side buttons.
Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, says moving the main buttons to the back of the phone gave users more control since this place was where individuals’ index fingers are naturally located.
LG says that moving the buttons also resulted in fewer dropped phones when adjusting the volume while talking.
I never dropped my cell phone while adjusting volume. In fact, in the last 15 years, my phone slipped from me 2-3 times only.
Its innovation does not stop here.
