LG G2 Unboxing and First Impressions


I have seen the LG G2 on countless occasions and playing it around for a few minutes. But I never had a chance to spend time with it. I bought the LG G2 last week by selling my daily driver, the Sony Xperia Z1. The Xperia was a good phone of course and I have seen its flaws too. Many blogs have praised the LG G2 and awarded it as “the Best Smartphone for 2013” like Yahoo Philippines Technostorm, Stuff.tv and even Unbox.ph. I want to experience it first hand so I bought it and will be using it as a daily driver. Now, let’s go with the unboxing and initial impressions.

First impressions:

  • It is surprisingly lightweight! I came from owning a Sony Xperia Z1 and since its made of metal and glass, there’s quite some heft to it.
  • LG opted on putting the power button and volume rockers at the back. This will really take some getting used to.
  • I really hate the back plate. Its shiny and fingerprint magnet.
  • Beautiful screen!

That’s all for now. Full review coming in a few days! So far, I’m very much impressed! LG has definitely nailed it this time!
