Korean manufacturer LG didn't really have anything to counteract the Samsung Galaxy S4, the HTC One and the Sony Xperia Z (unless you consider the Google Nexus 4 which was made by LG). But that's now changed with the LG G2, a smartphone that as powerful as the rest of the competition (Sony Xperia Z1, Acer Liquid S2 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3) and also cheaper.
In fact the G2 is cheaper than the Galaxy S4. Clove is currently taking preorders at £468, which is around what you'd pay for Apple iPhone 5C and expects the device to be available by the end of the month.
The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 system-on-chip clocked at 2.3GHz with 2GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a 5.2in IPS display with a 1,920 x 1,080 pixel resolution, Corning Gorilla Glass 3, a microSD card slot, 4G, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, a 13-megapixel rear camera and a front facing 2.1-megapixel one, 24bit, 192Khz sound and a 3,000mAh battery.
LG has introduced a number of features, not unlike the Galaxy S4. Answer Me, Plug and Pop, Text Link, QuickRemote, Slide Aside, Guest Mode, Audio Zooming, KnockOn, Tracking zoom etc. Check out our LG G2: Hands-on preview here.
