A Look At The Specs Of the LG G2 Phone

LG G2 Phone Specifications

The LG G2 Phone has some great design elements and impressive specs and in this review, we take a closer look to find out what exactly it has to offer in Specs.



LG has done some interesting things with its design for the G2

  • The bezels are very thin. This allows the phone to accommodate a 5.2-inch screen while still remaining small.
  • It really seems that LG gave the G2 the smallest bezels possible without making it impossible to hold the phone without putting fingers on the screen.
  • LG had placed all the buttons on the G2 on the phone’s back. Some people might like it, some might not.  The placement might seem strange but it is ultimately usable.
  • It has a slightly rounded back. This allows it to sit quite comfortably in the hand.
  • The dimensions of the LG G2 are 138.5 x 70.9 x 8.9 mm. It weighs 140 grams.
  • You can get the LG G2 in either black or white

Display Specs of LG G2 Phone

The display of the LG G2 is impressive and stunning


  • It has a 5.2-inch screen which uses IPS LCD technology.
  • It full HD with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 for a pixel density of 424 pixels per inch.
  • The resolution plus the size of the screen gives you a very sharp pixel density.
  • The colors on the G2 screen are vivid. There’s no problem with oversaturation here and images don’t look cartoonish like they do in some other smartphone displays.
  • It’s display has a maximum brightness level of 450 units. It is quite easy to see the display clearly even outside in the bright sunlight of mid-day.


The LG G2 is one of the few smartphones that currently use a Snapdragon 800.

  • It’s processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 NSM8974.
  • It has a quad-core Krait 400 which clocks at 2.26 GHz.
  • The processing package of the LG G2 is backed by and Adreno 330 GPU with 2 GB RAM.
  • We tested the processor of the LG G2 with AnTuTu Benchmark. The test was run 10 times and the LG G2 got scores that ranged from over 27,000  to over 32,500.
  • The final average score of the LG G2 from AnTuTu Benchmark was 29,560.
  • The first benchmark after the device was allowed to rest was the fastest and subsequent runs turned out a bit slower.
  • The LG G2 unit we used was not the final version but a review unit, the test numbers could be higher in the final version.
  • We also tested the LG G2 using Epic Citadel. We ran all three benchmark models, these were the results:
    • Ultra High Quality – average framerate 50.9 FPS
    • High Quality – 55.3 FPS
    • High Performance – 56.8 FPS
  • For everyday performance, we observed that performance was good and even impressive. It was easy to scroll, browse, launch apps and do everything else.  The performance was quick with no stuttering.
  • Gameplay was also smooth with the LG G2.


  • The LG G2 runs on Android 4.2.2. Jelly Bean.
  • This model uses LG’s custom user interface Optimus. This allows you to customize your interface by changing fonts.


  • It allows for button-free operation as well as gestures. Knock On allows you to turn on the display by tapping it twice.  Tapping an empty are twice or on the status bar will turn it off.  When you get a call you pick the phone up but the call doesn’t get answered till it reaches your ear.  This allows you to see who the caller is even before you pick up.
  • Slide aside is a feature where you can save an app’s state with a three-finger swipe. This slides it to the screens side and, when you want to use it again, just swipe in the opposite direction.
  • You can set a pattern lock that will enable your phone to go on guest mode, restricting the apps that a guest user can access.
  • When the display is off, holding down the volume down button launches the camera and this also serves as the shutter.
  • If you hold the volume up button, the notes app will launch.
  • QuickRemote allows you to use the G2 for a universal remote that can control a TV, Blu-ray player, a projector or even the air conditioner.
  • Update Center let you manage system and app updates.


  • The LG G2 has a 13 MP camera in the back with OIS, autofocus, and a LED flash. In the front, it has a 2.1 MP camera.


  • Even on the default settings, the LG G2’s camera can take a good photo due to optical image stabilization. OIS really reduces camera shake when the phone is on video and also improves low-light photos as it allows for long exposure times.
  • Colors are captured well and the images are sharp.
  • It can capture 1080p video at 60 FPS.


  • LG G2 has a 3,000 mAh battery.
  • After around 14 hours of heavy use, we found that there was still 20 percent left in the battery.
  • It should last long into a day of heavy use.
  • LG G2 battery is non-removable so you can’t rely on or use spares.

All in all, there’s nothing really bad that we can say about the G2.  While some people don’t like the interface or the new button placement, it’s not likely that most people will consider these big issues.


This is a really good phone.  Performance is speedy, the display is great, the bezels are thin, the camera is good, and the battery life is long.  We’d actually say that the LG G2 is one of the best smartphones ever made.
