Advanced Camera Features

The 13MP OIS rear camera of LG G2 allows image stabilization which helps users to capture images without any shake and also it serves better during low light using LED Flash. The multi-point AF provides accurate 9 AF points for multiple faces or moving objects, while Super Resolution let you to zoom 16 times without losing quality.

Another interactive feature is Shot & Clear where the user can click the photos by eliminating unwanted moving objects from the background.

Interactive User Experience Modes or Profiles

This feature allows users to work in two modes: Owners Mode and Quest Mode. By using two separate unlocking patterns these modes can be enabled. The owner’s mode will get complete privilege meanwhile guest mode posses’ restricted access (it can optimize). These features are similar to custom profile feature on Acer Liquid Z3 that was launched few days back.

Audio & Video Zoom / Tracking Zoom

LG G2 lets you zoom to a specific audio source by zooming in on your object while recording video. To enhance this features LG used three stereo mikes which amplify sounds on a specific area and reduce the surrounding noise.

Video Zoom is not a unique one; it allows users to zoom video to specific area during playback.

While playing a video if you want to track a specific person on the screen the zoom tracking give you the assistance. It features zooms in on the moving object you select and tracks their actions in a separate pane, overlapping the background video.

Hate Hardware Buttons!!

We must say, these make LG G2 unique in all aspects. Here LG doesn’t use too many hardware keys or feather touch key for the working. Only one is the hardware button beside the camera module. It serves different works like volume controller, power button, access to camera app and Quick Memo.

The feather touch key is added as UI in the software where you can select different combinations accordingly. And also for waking up your phone you just need to knock twice on display which enhances all features on-screen itself.

Capture Plus & Clip Tray

Capture Plus and Clip Tray

Capture Plus allows users to take screen shoot of the webpage with precise border controls that a user can optimize. Meanwhile Clip Tray operates just like the PC where user can change the size of the window (apps, games etc) on the screen (i.e. Clipboard). It allows multitasking in a smoother way.

The LG G2 can make a good change in shares of company in global market. The handset would go on sale in South Korea followed by North America, Europe and other markets within 8 weeks.
