Here it is folks, the all-new LG G2. It's LG's latest pambato in the superphone wars and is, arguably, the company's finest beast to date.
While we're not about to shower it with superlatives—at least not yet—some have said that it's among today's mobile top dogs. Some have even gone as far as saying that it's the best smartphone currently available!
A load of bull? Maybe, maybe not. What we're sure of is that this "G2's the shiznit!" talk got us thinking: Is it really the LeBron James (or Kobe Bryant for the Kobenatics) of phones? Here we list five awesome reasons that might just help build its case as the numero uno handset today or, at the very least, prove that it's one heck of a device.
1. G2 is for guwapo times two
The G2 shares the same design with most other flagships, and by that we mean it's a rectangular slab with a large display dominating the front side. Pretty standard, boring even, but there are a couple of design tweaks on the G2 that makes its exterior flow with good looks.
First, it has a really narrow bezel (the space between the screen and the sides) which makes it look more elegant and next-gen while giving you a bit more eye-candy. Second, there are no physical buttons on its sides, so you're left with an exterior that's consistent and more streamlined. Combined with its sleek glass, metal, and plastic construction, you've got a device that will merit second, nay, even third looks from your peers.
2. The back is where it's at
As we've said, the G2's tagiliran is void of buttons. This is more than just a papogi move; there's a practical reason behind it. If you flip the phone over, you'll see what is called the Rear Key which is used to turn the device on/off, activate the camera, or to launch the QuickMemo app (for making digital notes). This setup frees us from awkwardly pressing on the phone's side, which can lead to it suddenly slipping and hitting the floor (and you crying buckets). It also makes for better and faster selfie shots since your index finger can now take snaps easier.
