LG Optimus G Pro (AT&T)

 

The LG Optimus G Pro is a well-designed, well-sized phablet with an accent on the phone part, balancing a big screen and single-handed usability admirably.

Actually feels like a phone, not a mini-tablet. Sharp screen. Fast processor. Very customizable UI.

Call quality and camera quality could be better. You can't multitask enough apps.

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 Electronics Optimus T Review - PCWorld

 

Budget buyers, rejoice: LG has made Android affordable with its new Optimus T handset on T-Mobile ($30 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a new two-year contract; price as of November 20, 2010). But how much bang are you getting for your buck? Considering...

Affordable Android 2.2 device

Poor multimedia capabilities

The Optimus T for T-Mobile is incredibly affordable, but you get what you pay for-- the multimedia features are lackluster.

LG Optimus T review

 

It's easier than ever these days to get an Android smartphone. There are many budget models on the market, like the slate-style Motorola Charm and the sliding Samsung Intercept , both of which retail for under a hundred dollars. But LG has topped them...

The LG Optimus T has a simple touch-screen design, Wi-Fi, GPS, Wi-Fi hot-spot capabilities, 3G support, and a 3.2-megapixel camera, and it ships with Android 2.2. It's also very affordable.

The LG Optimus T has a slower processor and lower resolution display when compared with higher-end smartphones. There's no LED flash, and it doesn't have HD video capture. Flash 10.1 is not available with the Optimus T's browser even though Android 2.2...

The LG Optimus T is one of the best entry-level smartphones you can buy, with a feature set that is on par with devices more than twice its price.
