LG Electronics Philippines recently made the local debut of the Internationally acclaimed LG G2 smartphone. The G2 is the successor of LG’s Optimus line of high-end devices that recently held its global unveil in New York.

The LG G2 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Processor, 13-megapixel Full HD camera with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), sapphire crystal glass lens and 8x digital zoom with 9 multi-point auto focus, and HD video recording of up to 60 fps.


The new LG G2 features a unique design based on behavioral studies. Headlining the list of functions of the new phone is the world’s first Rear Key, which is used for switching on and off, activating LG’s QuickMemoTM, and launching the 13-megapixel Full HD camera. The device sports a 5.2-inch Full HD IPS display for superior graphics and contains the industry’s most powerful battery capacity at 3,000 mAh siO+. It also boasts of the industry’s first 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi sound playback for studio-quality audio.

A significantly re-tuned user experience (UX) features improved proprietary functions such as QuickMemoTM, QuickTranslator, QuickRemote, Audio Zoom, Dual Camera, and Dual Recording. It also comes with new and practical UX features such as KnockON, which turns the display on or off by tapping twice with a finger; Guest Mode, which protects the owner’s privacy by displaying only pre-selected apps when guests access the phone; and Answer Me, which automatically answers the call after lowering the ringtone when the phone is raised to one’s ear.

“LG G2 is the pinnacle innovation in the current line-up of LG Mobile,” Lawrence Kim, vice president of LG Electronics Philippines’ Mobile Communications division, stated. “Its key message’Learning from You’ incorporates a number of revolutionary consumer-based components that are set to become trendsetters in today’s smartphone market, shaping the smartphone of choice worldwide.”

    • Cerwayne Yamzon

      LG did good in implementing innovations on the G2 phone. G2 introduced a lot of new ideas and concept, but the rear key was really the most amazingly surprising feature!

    • Marc Daniel

      You’re absolutely right! I can’t think of any phone available in the market that will offer the same benefits that LG G2 does.

    • ravennal43

  • Kent Ace

    i loved this LG G2, because of its new innovation on audio zoom! awesome!!

  • Jutch Oh

    LG has again proven itself with the release of the G2 smartphone. They were able to perfectly position itself with the “Learning From You” message by incorporating experience. The audio zoom is just amazing as well as the tracking zoom and really helpful as well.

  • Cerwayne Yamzon

    The G2 smartphone introduced a lot of interesting concepts. The rear key was the best so far, it’s something really useful and user friendly.

  • Marc Daniel

    LG G2’s Full HD Video Recoding is far yet the best among the other smartphone’s camera/video features.

    • Cerwayne Yamzon

      The audio zoom and the track are jaw-dropping! The OIS is a plus for the camera! Less shaking in videos and less blurr in pictures!

      • Jell Garcia

        I definitely agree! :) I also heard that the feature “Shot and Clear” elimintaed unwanted moving objects from your images, for more perfect shots. So give it a try!

  • Jell Garcia

    Its because the lens is moving at ease, everything comes real! It is like I’m really experiencing the actual scene!

    • Cerwayne Yamzon

      The OIS makes the camera pretty effective. Because of the lenses moving, there are less shaking in the videos. The camera works so well even in places with low-light settings!

    • joy

      exactly! it can capture sharp picture and smooth video with G2’s 13 MP camera.

    • shean

      amazing! also the battery life span of the LG G2, HOORAY!

  • silver dionisio

    Experiencing this phone for the first time gave me chills! Nowadays, innovations are everywhere and really advance! and the LG’s G2 gives Apple iPhone and Samsung’s S series a run for their money! unique features like no other! its capability to audio zoom, plug and play and its sleek design with button less sides and rear key for volume and power button. Smartest smartphone ever!

  • thecyberinsider

    Comparing G2 display to other smartphones display’s. the G2 is better than samsung’s galaxy s4 super Amoled, it also more vibriant and larger.. the wide strengths of the LG’s True-HD IPS+ panel make it a very solid inclusion in the G2.

    • mary rose

      yeah if i compare G2 to the other, its seems G2 better and unique and many specs and application

  • tai

  • Silver Dionisio

    • Lee

      yeah and there are no lags even if you run different apps at the same time, it has a very smooth performance

    • ravennal43
