LG announced a new Android flagship - LG G2

As the second mobile phone producer in Korea and an important role of Android market in the world, it seems that LG has no much brilliant performance comparing with Samsung, another Korean mobile phone giant and the leader of Android phone at present. Most LG phones don’t impress us much except the Nexus 4. But this time as the new flagship – the LG G2 announced, we sees to have a reason to choose LG.

The 5.2 inch display is one of the main highlights of LG G2. It adopts an IPS LCD with 1920*1080 resolution and 450nit brightness rating. These make G2 has an excellent display effect. 5.2 inch is not a common size but it’s also suitable for two-hands holding.

As Sony Xperia Z Ultra first adopted the Snapdragon 800 chipset, more and more new phones choose this new and powerful chipset. LG G2 has a 2.3GHz CPU and Andreno 330GPU, with a 2G RAM and 16/32 GB ROM. This monster-level configuration almost catches the desktop PC and may have performance surplus.
