LG G2 AT&T (D800) Review & Specs

LG G2 is a very complete Android cellphone released back in 2013, equipped with a quite big 5.2″ touch-screen, a high performance 2.26 GHz Quad-Core processing unit, a 13 megapixels back facing camera and a 2.1 mega-pixels front camera. We will get a better idea about this phone’s features when we get into deeper details.

The LG G2 is powered by a very powerful 2.26 gigahertz Quad-Core processor, bundled in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 chip with a huge 2 GB of RAM memory. Graphic rendering often uses a lot of CPU processing time, so the LG G2 has an extra Adreno 330 GPU working at 450 megahertz to help the processor with those tasks. This phone has a 32 GB excellent internal storage and an external memory card slot, which allows you to install hundreds of applications and even the largest games currently available without even thinking about filling the cellphone.

This cellphone is available in two colors, black and white. The LG G2 is only 5.45 inches long, but it manages to hold a 5.2 inches screen. The LG G2 is thin and good-looking, being just 0.35 inches thick. LG made a very good job making this phone weight just 5.04 oz.

LG designed this phone with a high-tech 5.2-inches display, and a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), making everything look beautiful and brightful. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a brightness of 450 candela/m2 and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

This phone includes wifi capability (which can be shared with other devices as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) high performance connection type and also HSPA+ data connection, that is a lower speed 4G variation or 3G fast connectivity, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. This cellphone uses a Micro SIM card to use GSM services and it can connect to both CDMA and GSM carriers.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 2.1 mega-pixels front camera. Although it’s 13 mega-pixels might seem incredible the back-facing camera has a small 0.326797″ sensor which makes photos have less details and worse lighting than you would expect. It can also capture videos up to 1920×1080 (Full HD) at 60 frames per second. Additionally, the camera features a high number of great characteristics like auto-focus, flash, optical image stabilization, fast burst mode, face detection shooting, geo tagging and HDR mode.

This phone features a large 3000 mAh Li-Polymer non-replaceable battery providing this device an incredible battery duration. LG informs a talk time of 17.9 hs and a stand by time of 696 hours for this cellphone. An issue to take into account is that this device’s battery isn’t removable so you can’t change it when it begins to live shorter, although with such a huge battery size you will probably replace this cellphone before that happens.

The LG G2 also features many interesting features like Bluetooth (enables communication with other bluetooth devices, computers, and accessories), GPS, Infrared Transmitter and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your cellphone close to another NFC device or tag), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This phone is definitely a good choice for you no matter if you will use this cellphone for work, are looking for a social phone, want this phone for gaming or are an amateur photographer.
