How Big is Too Big? The LG G2

LG has made a serious chess move in the competition for the smart phone moon race with the LG G2, but the real question is ‘When do we land on the moon?’ The race for bigger, faster, more powerful, better display, more mega pixels doesn’t seem like it’s ever going to stop. It’s a good thing, I guess, but with LG pushing the boundaries of ‘size matters’ with it’s newly unveiled, 5.2 inch display G2, how big is too big? I guess not big enough and LG knows this, so they decided to put it’s tangible buttons on the back of the phone, not to deter anyone who doesn’t play in the NBA from easily navigating the phone with a single hand. The G2’s display size is right smack in the middle of the Samsung S4’s 5.0″ and 5.3″ Note Smart/tablet/phone thing, which looks comically big in the hands of most people that aren’t Shaq. A bold move from LG, who up until now was less than a threat to the mighty Samsung. The LG isn’t all about it’s pretty 5.2 IPS+ LCD 1080 x 1920 display with 424 pixels per inch face, it boasts a mind boggling powerful 2.26 GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM, which basically makes the comparison to the Samsung S4 Mark McGwire before and after PEDs. The LG G2 is the S4, but just a little bigger, faster, stronger in almost every category. Should be interesting how this plays out. Your move Samsung.
