By and by, there are smartphones using Android software that poke their head out of the masses and are actually noteworthy, then are reviewed and juxtaposed to the lead devices of other platforms: Apple with the iPhones, Samsung with the Galaxies, HTC with its Ones, and Nokia with its Lumias. At least, in theory. Only a handful of devices from each line are successful, but you get the idea.
Of course, no one ever considers LG for such a role. Despite being responsible for the Nexus 4 (and its successor), LG has never had enough reasons to push an ANdroid device as a flagship, far and wide for all to see.
That’s what the G2 is for, in LG’s first act.
