Every year, I wonder what is it that the hardware vendors will do to make their new flagships better then last year beyond the standard spec bump. Yes every year, your LG's Samsungs put more cores, memory and better cameras but thats not really innovation. However, so far, every year I am impressed with what other value added features, that may look small or insignificant but REALLY change the way you use your phones. LG G2 was just that phone that really got my head spinnig
1. Back buttons:
Initially I was skeptical of this. It is completely out of the norm, but so were some other features on other smartphones a few years ago. heck having apps on smartphones was awkward at some point but now we cant live without it. Back to the buttons, with a phone this big, this is a very natural spot as you will have a finger in the neighborhood. Even the Moto X has a little spot on the back to rest your finger and it is a very comfortable spot. So to have the power and volume buttons in the back make it easy to change volumes during a call, etc but it does take some getting used to.
2. Knock Knock, whose there?
Well its actually called Knock On. Due to the fact that the buttons are on the back, it would have been difficult to pick up the phone anytime you need to check the time/weather/notifications. So comes in Knock On. Tapping the screen twice wakes it up, tapping on the top twice shuts it off.
This is a very unique and innovative feature. Granted that the concept isnt new but the fact that they thought this through with the back button design, shows LG wants to be a game changer.
3. Quick Remote:
This is become the norm but it is still a great idea. Your phone as your universal remote, another way to tie your entertainment to your handy dandy device. Most current devices that support an IR remote work with this app. The setup is quite intuitive and easy and it just makes your life in the living room (or bed room) much simpler. No more where is the remote!
I hope this showcases some of the cool new and innovative features of the LG G2 and will help the readers to decide which will be their next upgrade.
