LG G2 Display

One of the elements of the LG G2 that the company insisted on during its New York-based event was the 5.2-inch display, which the company sees as the perfect size for a device that measures 2.7-inch in width.

Compared to its predecessor, the LG G2 has a display that’s 0.5-inch longer, and according to the company, it takes up 75.9% of the front side. The bezels have been greatly diminished, and we are looking at an edge-to-edge display design with ultra-thin bezels.

Responsible for the 2.65mm bezels on either side of the display is the use of two touch sensors, compared to just one sensor found in most smartphones.

Speaking about performance, LG revealed that the G2 uses Graphic RAM (GRAM) technology – apparently a first for the industry – which helps reduce power consumption by 26% on still frames, and increase usage time by 10%.

Finally, the 5.2-inch display is a Full HD (1920 x 1080 resolution, 423 ppi) IPS display, which packs more subpixels than competing Full HD AMOLED displays. That’s something smartphone buyers should take into consideration instead of pixel-per-inch (ppi) ratio when buying a phone, according to the company.

The LG G2 packs over 6 million subpixels compared to just over 4 million subpixels that are found on a Full HD AMOLED display. Without naming the competing product, LG has most likely compared the display quality between the LG G2 and the Galaxy S4 during its media event.

Interestingly, the company did not say anything about its recently announced ultra-slim 5.2-inch LCD panels, which we assumed it would be found inside the LG G2.

    Is that the best screen to body ratio in a smartphone?

    • I think so – I’ll be looking into this further, but from what I understand, yes, it’s the best ratio of screen to body – thus far ;).

      • MasterMuffin

        One more reason to get Nexus 5. It’s going to be pure awesomeness!

        • Jeric Garcia

          What i like with nexus line up is Price, PURE ANDROID.
          i should say i am a ”SPEChie” before
          But in real situation, i dont even download hard core games, i dont care about LTE (as of now, since there is no LTE signal in my location).

          As long as I can keep in touch with my facebook friends, Jot down notes if whenever I forgot my notebook from home, take decent photos, watch video, play riptide gp2 etc…
          Im happy with it… Im still sticking with my note 2 then upgrade if there is a mind blowing thing on future devices

          • MasterMuffin

            I’ve promised myself that I won’t update for a long time after I get N5, so I need a future proof device

        LG G2 has the highest screen to body ratio. It’s 0.9% better than the previous record holder Sony Xperia ZL which has a screen to body ratio at 75% :D

      • Daniel Carvalho

        I can´t say precisely, but what about Xperia ZL. Wasn’t that above 80%?

        Sorry if I’m wrong :S

  • William Kister

    I don’t understand why phones need better resolutions than TV’s

    • MasterMuffin

      How is Full HD higher res than in TVs? Your TV is just bad :P I think we should stop at Full HD though :)

      • William Kister

        Because a phone has a smaller screen than a TV it’s resolution will appear better than a TV. I think 1080 is awesome but on a 5″ screen it’s not as necessary as it is on a big 42″+ screen. All it does is make you need a better graphics accelerator.

        • MasterMuffin

          But you use your phone much closer to your eyes than you watch your TV, right? And the res (1080p) is the same no matter what screen size, so what you said is still not true.

          • William Kister

            Wow, you do not understand resolution well, 1080p refers to 1080 horizontal lines of vertical resolution. 1080 lines are more spread apart on a larger screen so the bigger you go the easier it is to see the pixels than it is on a smaller screen. That is why smaller screens look clearer and more crisp.

          • MasterMuffin

            Thanks captain, I know that very well. But the fact is, whether it’s 1080p in smartphone or TV, the res is same though you said otherwise. The sharpness changes because of pixel size, but the res is still the same not more or less like you originally said

    • Tran Nguyen

      That is sharp of the TEXT, time consume on the phone, outdoor light

    • simpleas

      more pixels more realism!

    • Rhino”

      more you can fit on the screen too…better browsing the net on 1080p than old 720p ;P

  • Valtheus

    I wonder if the thin bezel improves the functionality or not.

    • William Kister

      Makes it easier to break if you drop it, lol. Does utilize more space efficiently though.

  • YoungHermit

    Does it mean that the G2’s display is sharper than the one found in the HTC One?

    • carlisimo

      Hard to say. The G2 has fewer pixels per inch, and LG has only compared its subpixel arrangement to AMOLED screens – which the HTC One does not have (it uses an LCD screen). So I’d guess that the One’s screen is still sharper, but I can’t be sure.

    • MasterMuffin

      No, it doesn’t. One’s screen is sharper

    • Mohammed Sahib

      Theoretically, no. HTC one has higher PPI. But in reality, it is very difficult, near impossible perhaps, to tell them apart by naked eye.
      LG’s IPS supposedly has better viewing angles I believe.

  • LiiIiikEaBau5

    I WANT IT NOW!!!

  • Andrew Morel

    This phone’s bootloader better be unlocked, or no buy for me!

  • jing hui

    Why dont LG just put their 4K Resolution on the phone and make it the worlds first 4k phone .

    • gui

      Because 4k is really just the pixel density of a smartphone on a 50″ Display

    • Ruz

      bcoz its dumb to do this.. and practically one cant do this coz there are ROM size limitations

  • Ruz

    Sub pixel is ok but what a outdated panel to have.. Tru IPS+ HD has died or what?
    Cant you take a note of this LG

  • Eddy

    The miraculous endurance of the G2 paired with a high-level screen and processor, make it one of the most tempting smartphones I’ve seen in the last six months.
