First impressions: LG G2 smartphone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor

LG G2 smartphone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor supports TD-LTE network in India, the company said on Monday.

The LG G2 is now available on at Rs 38,804 for 16GB version and Rs 42,456 for 32GB model.

It comes with the old version of Google Android Jelly Bean. LG will take time to offer the latest Android version.

Buttons on the rear of the device is one of the many innovations of LG G2 smartphone.

Studio-like sound quality, rich graphics and outstanding battery efficiency are available with other phones as well.

The phone has a privacy feature that sets two pattern locks, allowing limited interface for guest users.

For unlocking the phone, users need to knock on the display twice.

LG says users can control both the power and volume buttons with the index finger. The company claims that back buttons has resulted in fewer dropped phones when adjusting the volume while talking. The rear volume keys are multi-functional and long pressing them would launch QuickMemo app and the camera.

G2 sports a 5.2 inch full HD IPS display.

IPS display ensures better graphics, accurate colors and clear images without any distortion. LG G2 employs Graphic RAM (GRAM) technology which reduces the display’s energy use by up to 26 percent on a still frame and increases overall usage time on the device by approximately 10 percent.

To offer an expansive viewing experience, LG’s Dual Routing technology reduces the phone’s bezel to a mere 2.65mm on the side edge which makes the maximum viewability of the large 5.2inch in compact and slim design.

LG G2’s 13MP camera comes with Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) technology to prevent blurring. G2 allows dual-recording with its 13MP back and 2.1MP front camera.

While most smartphone cameras with OIS tend to offer a resolution in the 4MP to 8MP range but G2 is unique in that as it offers 13MP and OIS technology in a slim design without a protruding lens.

It is the first smartphone on the market today to feature 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi playback that reproduces studio-like quality sound.

Its KnockOn feature helps the smartphone to be powered on by tapping twice on the display. The Guest Mode feature protects privacy as it sets two pattern locks. It allows the owner to set up a sort of guest interface for people who want to experience the phone.
