The next big thing with a new concept......LG G2

The LG G2 is the first Smartphone handset to come without side buttons, with a control pad on the back of the handset. It sounds like an interesting innovation - but will it work?
T3 say the new design isn't quite perfect yet but were impressed by many of the features on the device, which LG hope will reverse its fortunes in the Smartphone marketplace.

The concept of putting buttons on the back came from research which revealed that the larger Smartphone’s became, the harder it was for users to access side keys, LG said.

“Moving the main buttons to the back of the phone gave users more control since this place was where individuals’ index fingers are naturally located,” LG said in a statement.
“Researchers found that moving the buttons also resulted in fewer dropped phones when adjusting the volume while talking.”

The buttons on the back allow users to launch the camera and a note-taking application. The power button is also located on the back of the device, but if the phone is lying on a table users can switch it on by tapping on the screen twice.
The LG G2 will sport a 5.2-inch phablet-sized screen, along with a speedy quad-core processor and uniquely positioned rear buttons. Verizon Wireless has announced it will not only carry the LG G2, but its variant will have a unique exclusive -- built-in wireless charging.
The Verizon LG G2 will officially feature wireless-charging, but LG and Verizon did not comment on how the wireless charging would work -- on whether it would be a Qi-compatible device or utilize a specific accessory from LG.
Built-in wireless charging was also featured in the Nexus 4, the Smartphone running a stock version of the Android OS manufactured by LG for Google. The LG G2 pictured on the Verizon Wireless website also features a metallic-looking Rear Key. The LG G2’s Rear Key is a uniquely positioned power button that emits a white LED glow when pressed, sandwiched between two volume keys.

Well, best of luck LG.....
