    Most of these features are actually quite innovative. If there was to be a “10 Dumbest Tech Blogs” post, I’m sure that this blog would be number one.

    Dumbest article ever, haven’t you seen the s4 ad? Someone was eating and he/she doesn’t want to put food all over the s4

    I love when people try the LG G2′s volume and power buttons. How can you expect to immediately get used to it. Think about the car you have, did you say,”Oh this car sucks, cause I don’t know everything in 5 minutes.”

    Also, let’s see the author recreate the hardware and software features on his own.

    How rude!

    Did you realize that the back buttons on the G2 are actually convenient? I had an S4 and then the LG G2 and I have to say the back buttons are a lot more innovative than waving your hand over the screen. In fact I flashed Cyanogenmod and never used them again. However rear buttons are much easier to use :) Many of these other features are useful and people enjoy… Just because I didn’t like Air View doesn’t mean other people won’t like it, some people do like it.
