The newly launched phone from the house of South Korean electronics giant LG, the LG G2 is magnetically attracting smartphone lovers. The phone is loaded with lots of features which are impressive on all fronts. It is one of the best Android Phone among the currently available smartphones. One of the most attention catching feature of this phone is the camera. Before we talk about the camera in detail let us go through the basic parameters that are looked in every phone.
Design and Build
The phone is very beautifully designed and light weight. It feels soft in the hands to hold it, even being large screen phone it fits in the hand and doesn’t feels bulky. The power and the volume rocker keys are placed below the camera at the back of the phone. It is a different placement that you won’t find in other phones. The SIM tray is given at the left side and there is infrared blaster port at the top edge. The bottom edge has Micro USB port along with speaker grills and 3.5mm headset jack.
The LG G2 has 5.2 inch full HD IPS LCD display of resolution 1080×1920 pixels with pixel density of 423 pixels-per-inch (ppi). The display screen is made up of scratch resistant Gorilla Glass 3, so you don’t have to worry about wear and tear. The display sharpness, color accuracy, above average viewing angles and clarity is very impressive in this phone. Watching videos and playing games is an amazing experience. The unique feature about G2 display is the almost absent bezel at the surroundings. This is the feature where no other phone stands even close to G2. Overall I can say LG has offered the best display in this phone, that you can’t get in any other phone.
Camera is the most interesting and exciting feature of LG G2. With G2, LG has given the most quickest camera, faster than any other smartphone to date. The camera is 13 megapixel and comes with 9 point auto focus this enables fast and accurate capturing of moving objects and images having multiple faces. The phone offers 8x zoom and also has 2.1 MP front camera for video calling. Another killer feature of LG G2’s camera is the Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS), because of which you can take good photos even when there is a shake while capturing. Another impressing feature is the dual recording feature, that enables you to record simultaneously from both the front and back cameras.
The phone comes with LG’s own camera app, which has many useful controlling features. The app’s voice activated shutter, lets you shoot photos with your voice inputs like cheese, ‘LG’, ‘Smile’ and ‘Whisky’. In the time catch mode, G2’s camera app starts taking shots before you can click the shutter and offers you the five brilliant looking pictures to choose. For action capturing the app features burst photo mode that captures up to 20 images in swift continuation.
LG’ G2 camera also performed better than iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S4, HTC One, Motorola Moto X and DROID Ultra on many parameters in the PhoneArena Camera comparison
