We’ve already shown you what taking the LG G2 out of its packaging looks like, and we’ve long since pressed that review unit into service generating the features, comparisons, and full review you’ve anxiously awaited since we first laid hands on the G2 last month.
But it’s one thing to unbox a device that’s come straight from the manufacturer, and quite another to do the same with its carrier-branded variants. From branding to UI to bloatware to what comes bundled in the box, carriers hold a lot of sway when it comes to customizing their smartphones – and it’s rare that we get to see those variants side by side in the same video.
Hence the purpose for today’s exercise, which showcases the Verizon and AT&T versions of the G2 on the same desktop, alongside the global unlocked version from this morning’s unboxing. We’ll take you on a tour of all the subtle differences between these devices, pausing to soak in the minute details only the hardest-core of phone geeks care about – and then we’ll prime you for the reviews and comparisons to come. Join us in this unusual LG G2 Verizon- & AT&T-edition “double unboxing,” and then stay tuned for much more on the G2 in the days ahead!
