LG G2 Price: €450 from expansys.ie Rating: HHHH
THE whole 'small country' thing means that Ireland sometimes misses out on some of the best phones. Like the Nexus 5 or Moto X, LG's impressive, competitively-priced G2 is a case in point. The Android machine has a superb 5.2-inch (423ppi) screen, good battery life, solid 13-megapixel camera and great, quad-core power.
And yet to get one into your hands, you'll need to visit an airport duty-free shop or wander into webstores such as Expansys.ie.
This is a shame. In a market with a solid need for really good smartphones that stop shy of Apple's €600 to €700 price-tags, this is a very, very good option.
Its sole quirk is the placement of volume and power buttons on the back of the device rather than the side.
