  • LG Optimus G v Samsung Galaxy S III: Beast wars
    GSMArena team
    ★★★★★

    27 Oct 2012 | gsmarena

    In an attempt to LG recapture some of its old glory LG released the first phone with the next generation Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset. The Samsung Galaxy S III has been out for several months now, but is yet to beaten as the best Androids smartphone on the market. The Optimus G looks like the strongest challenger so far and it seems to have a very good chance of being pronounced the new king by the end of this review. Together, the two handsets repr...

    Verdict: 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 surpris...

    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......

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

    Cons: The Optimus G doesn`t have a microSD card slot, its battery drained fairly quickly, and sounds from the audio speaker were harsh.

    Verdict: 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....

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

    Verdict: So if youu2019re due for an upgrade and see no need for expensive bleeding-edge smartphones, you could do a lot worse than the Optimus G....

    We`re not big fans of superlatives, but for LG`s flagship phone of the season, we`ll make an exception. The LG Optimus G is the best phone from the company, especially considering its string of ho-hum handsets that were good but not great. Australians have had to wait a while for this, with even LG admitting that the Optimus G`s arrival was "somewhat overdue", but the Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core CPU still stands up, as does the impressive display...

    Pros: 13-megapixel camera,Zippy quad-core CPU,Attractively bright touchscreen,Clever multitasking features,

    Verdict: Though it`s not without one or two problems, we`d recommend this LG Optimus G if your area is covered by Telstra`s 4G network. It still maintains the speedy, quad-core guts of its counterpart and both have that gorgeous display. However, it`s that 13...

    The LG Optimus G offers a high-definition 4.7-inch screen, a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel camera, making it a potentially searingly powerful phone. It`s a shame, then, that LG hasn`t loaded it with the latest Android software....

    Pros: High-resolution screen ; Quad-core processor ; 13-megapixel camera ; Should have 4G

    Cons: Not the latest version of Android ; Likely to be pricey
