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.
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.
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.
