It looks like the smartphone wars are heating up. LG announced their new Android UberPhone, the G2, at an event in New York two weeks ago and it looks good enough to give Samsung and Apple a run for their money.
LG NZ were quick enough off the mark to get a couple of test units into the country and from my brief hands on, I can tell you that it looks and feels pretty awesome. We didn’t have enough time to carry out an in depth review but you can read more about the features after the break below.

New Perspective in Smartphone Design
The LG G2 brings everything together in a device with a comfortable, functional, convenient and beautiful design. The LG G2 shifts the paradigm in smartphone design by placing all the buttons on the rear of the device, making this the first smartphone to be completely devoid of buttons on the sides of the device. The Rear Key concept comes from the realisation when studying users that the larger the phone became, the more difficult it was to properly access side buttons. Moving the main buttons to the back of the phone gives users more control since this is where individuals’ index fingers are naturally positioned. Furthermore, this is perfect for left and right-handed users.
