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

 

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

 

Since the introduction of its Android 4.0 lineup, LG seems to have turned a new leaf. For years, it has struggled to keep up with the phones and marketing muscle of the Apples and Samsungs of the world. Earlier this year, the Optimus 4X HD introduced...

Fantastic processing power ; Beautiful screen ; 13-megapixel camera ; Beautiful hardware design

Unoriginal UI ; AT&T version has only 8MP camera ; AT&T version not as refined ; Camera has trouble in darker areas

The Optimus G is an incredibly powerful phone and one of the best devices to come out in 2012, but its user interface is still more forgettable than it is fresh.

The LG Optimus G and the Samsung Galaxy S III are the best Android can currently offer. Picking between a smartphone that came to the market five months ago and one that is just arriving might have seemed easy at first, but after the somewhat...

LG Optimus G (AT&T)

 

The LG Optimus G ($199.99) has all the makings of a killer smartphone. From its 4.7-inch 720p display to its quad-core processor, this is definitely the fastest smartphone on AT&T, and one of the nicest looking, too. Its 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4...

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

Disappointing camera. Runs hot. Plenty of bloatware

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.

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...
