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...

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...

LG Optimus G (AT&T)

 

The LG Optimus G for AT&T is a quad-core beast, but a disappointing camera and heating issues hold it back from smartphone perfection.

Blistering quad-core performance. Gorgeous display. Sleek design. Strong battery performance.

Disappointing camera. Runs hot. Plenty of bloatware.

LG Optimus G (AT&T)

 

The LG Optimus G offers a beautiful, 4.7-inch display, lots of innovative features and fast AT&T 4G LTE speed.

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 (Sprint)

 

The LG Optimus G for Sprint is the fastest Android phone today, but it isn't the best Android phone on Sprint.

Blistering quad-core performance. Gorgeous display. Sleek design. Good talk time.

Disappointing 13-megapixel camera. Runs hot. No microSD card slot.

LG Optimus G (Sprint) review:

 

We're not big fans of superlatives, but for LG's flagship phone of the season, we'll make an exception. Sprint's LG Optimus G is the best phone from the company, which is saying a lot considering its string of ho-hum handsets that were good but not...

Sprint's LG Optimus G sports a 13-megapixel camera, a zippy quad-core CPU, and an attractively bright touch screen.

The Optimus G doesn't have a microSD card slot, its battery drained fairly quickly, and sounds from the audio speaker were harsh.

Despite its short battery life, Sprint's LG Optimus G is the best LG phone on the market due to its zippy processor, lovely display, and 13-megapixel camera.

AT&T LG Optimus G Review

 

With the LG Optimus G , this OEM brings on its most powerful device by a long shot, with Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor inside and a 4.7-inch TrueHD IPS+ LCD display up front, this running on AT&T's 4G LTE network here in the USA....

This device is the most well-refined package that LG has ever delivered, with a generous amount of processing power, a high-class physical feel, and a final product that finally does justice to the display power LG has been bringing on for months in...
