LG Optimus G incelemesi


A vrupa'da LG'nin amiral gemisi olan Optimus G cep telefonu ABD'de LG Optimus G Pro model adıyla satışa sunuluyor. Maalesef Optimus Pro modeli Avrupa'ya gelmeyecek. LG Optimus G telefon ekstra harcamalar hariç 400 Euro / 1.100 TL civarında bir fiyatla...

LG Optimus G E975


LG's Optimus G has hit local shores a bit late. But thanks to its premium feel in hand and decent specs it makes for a capable device worth considering.

Great display, despite only being 720p rather than full HD; smooth and fast performance courtesy of its CPU and RAM combo; decent level of software feature enhancements; really decent rear snapper; and feels a bit more premium in hand compared to other...

Heavier than a lot of its rivals; design does not allow it to stand out from the smartphone crowd; and lacks the brand appeal of the iPhone and Galaxy devices.

LG Optimus G review


With all of its many great qualities, the LG Optimus G deserves to do well in the market. But it will face a wide array of new smartphones shipping in the next few weeks, including quad-core models like the HTC One X+ running Jelly Bean, and a slew of...

Review LG Optimus G E975 Smartphone


Familiar devices. More than four months after the launch of the Google Nexus 4 the counterpart from LG is finally available. The specifications are almost identical but the price is much higher. This review will tell you how the South Korean flagship...

Build quality, SoC-performance, LTE module, Bright display, NFC module, Temperature profile, The Google Nexus 4 concept was successfully refined, drawbacks have been improved and useful features were added, for example the LTE module

No Full HD display, Non removable battery, Memory cannot be expanded, High retail price, A removable battery would make sense and the quality of the front camera could be better

LG Optimus G review: Grand Slam


Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support, 3G with HSPA; LTE, 4.7" 16M-color WXGA True HD IPS Plus (768 x 1280 pixels) capacitive touchscreen, Gorilla Glass, Android OS v4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, planned upgrade to 4.1 Jelly Bean, LG Optimus UI 3.0, Quad-core...

No microSD card slot, No Jelly Bean at launch, Mediocre sunlight legibility, Non user-replaceable battery, 13MP camera hardly any better than competitors' 8MP units

Safe to say, LG has done it - all the right pieces are put together in what's a good-looking and powerful smartphone. And unlike the Optimus 4X HD, the Optimus G isn't trailing behind the competition. This time LG is ahead of the pack. The powerful S4...

Fast 4G LTE speed, Powerful graphics and performance, Bright, vivid display can be viewed outdoors, Slick interface, with useful features, Camera delivers beautiful photos and fast shutter-speed

Boring design, Below-average battery life

LG Optimus G Australian Review: Fantastically Forgettable


LG wants to shed its image as a supplier of dinky pre-paid handsets, and decided to build the Optimus G: a phone it has dubbed the “superphone”. Naff buzzwords aside, is the Optimus G any good? LG says that to get this device with 4G, Android 4.2 and...
