LG Optimus G review

 

An awesome phone, but a little too late?

Stunning IPS screen Fast CPU ; Miracast screen sharing ; Cool, unique LG apps

Faceless design ; Average camera ; No expandable storage ; Some annoying software quirks

LG's road to smartphone success has been rockier than most. After false starts with the Optimus series, LG basically took 2012 off; a sabbatical from the top-tier end of the market to gather its thoughts.

LG Optimus G review

 

I got a short hands-on experience with the LG Optimus G at the MobileCon mobile IT conference this week.

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...

Goondu review: LG Optimus G

 

The Optimus G is an excellent Android phone that's well worth a look if you're currently looking at an upgrade.

So if you’re due for an upgrade and see no need for expensive bleeding-edge smartphones, you could do a lot worse than the Optimus G.

Hands-on: LG Optimus G finally comes to Singapore

 

LG's Optimus G was unveiled in September last year – an age ago in mobile electronics – and will finally be available in Singapore this Saturday for S$798 without a telco contract. The Optimus G i...

At S$798, the Optimus G will likely see some attractive telco discounts. But if you’re going to buy it without contract, and do not care for any of LG’s software enhancements, it makes more sense to order the Nexus 4 online. The latter is essentially...

LG's new Optimus G Android smartphone, which will be available from both Spring and AT&T, offers a fast processor, a brilliant display and some powerful productivity features.

LG Optimus G Android phone

 

It's far from perfect but the Optimus G is definitely LG's best smartphone ever

Excellent performance ; Outstanding screen ; Great range of features

Poor battery life ; No microSD card slot ; Interface can be a little messy

Poor battery life and the lack of a microSD card slot are downsides, but the 4G-capable Optimus G is fast, well-designed and has some handy software features. It's definitely LG's best smartphone ever.

LG Optimus G Review

 

We were at the LG Optimus G launch in Korea on September 17, where we were able to briefly play with it. The Optimus G is the first smartphone to launch with the Quad-Core SnapDragon S4 Pro processor, so it [...]

It is also a winner on the performance side, keep in mind that its quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC (vs dual-core Snapdragon S4 for the Samsung Galaxy S3) with its faster GPU (adreno 320 vs. Adreno 225 for the S3) produce better results across...

LG Optimus G for AT&T and Sprint review: Double impact

 

With the dust barely settled after the Korean LG Optimus G's run around out review track, we have its LTE packing, US siblings on our hands. The LG Optimus G E970 for AT&T and its LS970 relative for Sprint are the two versions which are offered across...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; 3G with HSPA; LTE ; CDMA network support (Sprint Wireless version only) ; 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...

No microSD card slot on the Sprint version ; No Jelly Bean at launch ; Screens have mediocre sunlight legibility ; Non user-replaceable battery

LG has made a massive leap forward in the United States with both the Optimus G for AT&T and its sibling for Sprint Wireless. In the past, the LG devices hardly topped any sale charts. This time around however, the LG Optimus G deserves a spot at the...
