Default [Q] Does the LG G2 has Step Counter and Step Detector? (Pedometer)

hey hey

i know the iphone 5s and nexus 5 have hardware for this.

on quadrant (im on stock rom, with root, android 4.2.2, variant D802) on info tab shows several sensors including these ones:

LGE Pedometer sensor
LGE Pedestrian-activity-monitor sensor


so, that means LG G2 have those sensors?
when 4.4 update comes, it will be supported?

on kitkat webpage they say "Step detector and counter sensors are available on Nexus 5, and we're working with our chipset partners to bring them to new devices as soon as possible."

thanks in advance

yes, all phones with gps/acelerometer can use pedometer apps.


but iphone 5s and nexus 5 use specific hardware to do this, instead of apps using gps/acelerometer to do this. less battery, high precision.

so trying to wonder if LG G2 has this.

In Play Store the Pedometer Pro application states that in the summary:
Requirements:
- Nexus 5, Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition, or LG G2 only. These devices include a hardware step counter that makes it possible to keep the pedometer active without any additional battery drain.
- Android 4.4 KitKat or newer: The latest version of Android provides APIs to utilize that hardware step counter
So I suppose the G2 has the hardware step detector and counter but 4.2.2 does not support them so we have to wait for the 4.4 update to come.

I can't install it on my AOSP ROM though.

Maybe only work with stock kitkat on g2.

I'm on cm11 and on play store it's not compatible with my g2

I'm also curious on whether the G2 has a built in step counter.
