LG today announced its latest flagship device, the G2 smartphone, which is the first device to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC clocked at quad-core 2.26GHz. The smartphone has a 5.2-inch full HD display with a pixel density of 423. The G2 has an ultra-thin bezel of just 0.1-inch and has been launched in two storage options – 16GB and 32GB – however there is no microSD card slot. Quite a few experts speculated that the smartphone will run Android 4.3 but, it isn’t and instead runs Jelly Bean 4.2.2.

One thing that stands out in the G2 is the location of its physical buttons – they are located at the rear unlike any other smartphone we have seen – ever.

Below we have compared the specification of the G2 with that of Samsung Galaxy S4, Motorola Moto X and HTC One. LG has done a great job in getting a top-notch smartphone in the market – a little too late seemingly – but, the specifications may motivate consumers to go for the handset nonetheless.

The major plus point of the G2 are the ultra-thin bezel, huge battery, and the all new Snapdragon 800 processor. The downside is the inability to expand the storage using microSD card.
