LG G2 is of one those devices that brings true hardware innovation for the first time in many years.
The high end smartphones are going bigger by the day and utilizing their hardware keys like Power/Lock/Volume rocker is difficult with those big screen devices.

This seems quite weird when you first imagine but if you shake your head a bit it is much easier to manage with smartphone having a 5.2 inch display. Yes it will take some time to get used to it but LG has come with some cool approach with its Optimus G2. We think that the reason behind putting the lock/volume rocker on the back is that your forefinger come automatically where the rear buttons are placed on the Optimus G2 thus making it easier to control.
