LG goes for form factor tweaks to gain Android handset share
LG, the other South Korean tech giant, finds itself in a difficult position. Namely, it has to compete with Samsung, which has become an absolute behemoth in displays, processors, tablets, and smartphones. As many other Android manufacturers have found, there is really little to be done on the platform in order to differentiate one's handsets from the pack. HTC has taken the high build quality path, releasing the iPhone-quality HTC One flagship to mixed results. Others have gone the super low-end route, but very few are making money. With the G2, LG has decided to switch up the standard form factor while maintaining a solid-but-affordable build quality. How well have they pulled it off? Check out our full review of LG's new flagship in order to find out.
