Verizon’s LG G2 is a Hideous Mobile Advertisement

Earlier today, Verizon confirmed that it would be carrying the new LG G2 along with AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. It also, for the first time, showed off what the LG G2 will look like when it arrives on shelves and unfortunately, the LG G2 received the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 treatment and possess a number of logos that foul up its otherwise sleek design.

As expected, LG debuted its new LG G2, a follow up to last year’s successful LG Optimus G, a device that received great reviews and was solid competition for the likes of the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy Note 2. So, it came as no surprise to learn that LG had a successor up its sleeve, a successor that arrived today in the form of the LG G2.

Is this the LG G2 or a mobile advertisement? It's hard to tell.

The LG G2 on paper appears to be a solid replacement for the LG Optimus G, checking in with a massive 5.2-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, LTE-Advanced, and a 13MP camera in the rear. It also comes with buttons on the back of the phone, something new for a flagship Android device and a frame that is 8.9mm.

it also comes with some powerful software from LG and Android Jelly Bean. The LG G2 is going to be making its way to AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon in the future and needless to say, when it does, it will be a device that consumers will want to take a look at.


The Verizon LG G2 in particular is going to be a hard device not to notice as the device will apparently be coming with not one, not two, not three, not four, but five logos that transform the device into a hideous advertisement for Verizon, Verizon’s LTE network and LG.

It brings back memories of Samsung and Verizon’s Galaxy Note 2 which sported a Verizon logo on the home button.

Note the horrible looks home button.

For many users, this won’t matter because well, LG and Verizon logos on the front back of the device won’t be a deal breaker for many people. But for those that really cherish smartphone design, the Verizon LG G2 is going to come across as a blight of epic proportions.

Consumers who thought that Verizon learned its lesson with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 were sorely mistaken it seems.
