And about that button ”innovation”. Just imagine that you put your phone on a desk! That volume button will be pressed! Or that silver button which (if the leaks are right) is the Lock/Unlock/Power button. So, everytime I will put the G2 on a desk it will light up because one of that buttons is pressed! And now imagine that you record a video! You want to Zoom in. How will you try to push that + button next to the camera and also avoid to show your finger in the video??? HOW? Accidentally, your finger will get over the camera and will be recorded on the video! That button configuration only shows problems, not solutions! So where is the innovation?
Exactly i was about to say the same thing....lg likes to go the samsung way...from ui to design to materials and everything..still lg fanboys refuse to accept...
no.BoUndaries, 07 Aug 2013People, come on! G2 front is very similar to GS4 front. The same silver frame around the phone... moreYou mean like Samsung copied Apple for all those years? Everyone copies everyone and who cares.
People, come on! G2 front is very similar to GS4 front. The same silver frame around the phone and almost the same shape! Just imagine the G2 with a little smaller screen and with that Home button from GS and what you obtain: a GS4! Do not be blind! They only erased the physical buttons and put a bigger display on GS4 design! Face it, LG fanboys! LG copied Samsung again! The UI, the tabbed settings, the S View Cover (or now Quick Window), Smart Stay, Smart Pause (which was first leaked on a Galaxy S3 ROM online, then announced-only by LG, then seen in action first on S4, so is Samsung's idea and they were the first who showed it), the icons (look at the Contacts icon), even the Weather Widget looks similar! LG is copying every aspect that Samsung is doing! Face it! Even the ads: http://www.uswitch.com/mobiles/news/2013/03/samsung_galaxy_s4_launch_sabotaged_by_lg_guerilla_ads_in_times_square/ !!! Shame LG! I do not care about you, LG fanboys, because you know the truth but you do not want to show it! LG copy Samsung, anytime!
that back button is genius. its that sort of innovation that makes leaps and bounds. not law suit after law suit

Lg need to listen what costumer want.....
We need speedy smartphone, easy to operate, big battery capacity, and a beautiful screen..
Mobilemaster, 07 Aug 2013Oh come on man, Sony is not as good as many believe.

Gsizzle1, 07 Aug 2013Why the hell does the phone has two logo's? Both in the front and back? Are you kidding me LG?Really??? Did you see the samsung phone. Has two logos to. At least is two letters only. LG not a hold word Samsung. seriously dude.?
Amir, 07 Aug 2013if you want a pretty and all around great quality phone then go with sony. you won't find that... moreU clearly are just a hating fan boi. The 2 phones look pretty identical save for a few minor tweaks. The backs look similar as well but not as much as round the front. In fact lets just face it. Nearly all phones are similar in the fact that they are just big slabs of glass with bezels. There is not as much that can be done with touch screen phones now. The next design revolution needs to arrive .i.e flexible screens and on.....
Amir, 07 Aug 2013g2 rapes s4, note 3 rapes g2. honami rapes all smartphones combined. xperia z ultra is an alie... moreI agrreeeeeee with u ! ...... and also placing the buttons on back doesn't make it innovative LG..
The spec is decent and thats all about it... Imho it's one of the ugliest phone so far. Plastic "soup dish-like" shell looks even worse then the Galaxy S4's one. Just unbelievably hideous design from LG.
Amir, 07 Aug 2013if you want a pretty and all around great quality phone then go with sony. you won't find that... moreOh come on man, Sony is not as good as many believe. I am sure this LG can do more than any other Sony device. Maybe the Honami will have a great camera, but this phone can do more than that.
