Big is beautiful, if you do it right. That's what LG has done with their new high-end smartphone, the updated G2, which comes with a huge screen with buttons placed on its back.

You can say it, because it's true: LG has offcially fired shots toward Apple, Samsung and HTC. LG wants a piece of the pie. With a 5.2-inch screen and a 1080p display, the company says it has developed the phone to be handled one-handed by placing the volume and power buttons on the back. It may seem a little awkward at first, but its the price you're going to pay for having such a big screen—something many thought Apple was going to do with the iPhone long ago. 

The G2 will come with 16 or 32 GB of storage and a 13 MP image-stabilized camera. It's coming to all major carriers in the U.S, and will begin rolling out in the next eight weeks.
