LG G2 DAY, 7 AUGUST 2013

#LG #LGG2 #G2

Good afternoon, Synapse Circuit Readers! The day has come... The day of the LG G2 superphone, 7 August 2013!

WOW!
LG has created a stunning handset with the G2. One of the functions, ‘Answer ME’, seems like an improvement upon the Samsung phone to ear feature where you don’t have to make a gesture to answer a call.

The slim bezel design is excellent and the idea to place the power and volume buttons on the back of the phone appears to be a good one. It remains to be seen if people will accidently switch off the phone or whack up the volume by accident.

One feature that I find outstanding is the Text Link function that can – content depending – link to the Memo and Calendar app to save going back and forth to add an event to the calendar or make a note of it. Cool!

The sound quality is in an amazing 24-bit which could have great implication for music creation apps.

THE LIVE EVENT
As it goes I thought the live event was quite good, not as outlandish as Samsung’s S4 reveal and far from contempt and self-aggrandizing that we see from Apple. However, LG has taken a leaf out of Samsung’s book in using a specific date and time to mark the launch of a product. When we think of the 3rd of May we think of the Galaxy S3 event at London’s Earls Court but the date did change with the introduction of the Galaxy S4. 7 August 2013 is known as G2 day and I wonder if LG will keep that date for the G3. We’ll see...

It was interesting to see that LG moved away from getting too heavy with the specifications and Android to concentrate on what the G2 is capable of. We have come to expect the very best from the specifications when it comes to premium Android handsets and it’s time to concentrate on the user experience, UX. The best way to put is to quote from LG’s Dr. Jong-seok Park, “Innovation for innovation sake is old school.” It’s a subtle dig at the Samsung Galaxy S4 Air Gesture features which did not come across as disrespectful.

Towards the end the event became strangely holy with the G2 ascending to the angelic choir boy tones. It made me chuckle, but LG certainly has something to celebrate and they had better live it up while they can as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is said to be revealed in Berlin on the 3rd September 2013 at the IFA event.

For Android fans this year couldn’t get much better!

What do you reckon?   

Take good care!
