LG Optimus G (E975) Review

3 December 2013
  • Summary: The LG Optimus G is available for a street price of roughly Rs 31,000, which is quite competitive considering the Samsung Galaxy S III is priced similarly. The Optimus G is definitely one hell of a feature-packed smartphone and has the raw power to carry out any task with ease. Its new QuickMemo and QSlide apps are two standout features and the cheese shutter is the handiest feature we’ve yet seen in a smartphone camera.

Review LG Optimus G E975 Smartphone

28 April 2013
  • Summary: 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 device performs compared to other high-end devices.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: 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 (AT&T)

Chip Chick
18 March 2013
  • Summary: On paper, the LG Optimus G is as good as it gets for Android; it has every spec you could possibly want. In-hand, it definitely lives up to it’s potential. As long as you’re okay with a very large handset, you’ll be happy. Even with large hands, it can be tricky, but it doesn’t take long getting used to. LGs enhancements are pretty nice and the quadcore processor is more than capable of handling all of the eye-candy.
  • Pros: Sharp Design, Great Build Quality, Gorgeous Screen-colors/brightness/viewing angle/resolution, Micro-USB charging, Very Fast–Processing and ATT Data, Amazing Battery, LG Enhancements are useful and pretty, No Dedicated Camera Button, No Removable Battery, No Jelly bean yet
  • Cons: Sharp Design, Great Build Quality, Gorgeous Screen-colors/brightness/viewing angle/resolution, Micro-USB charging, Very Fast–Processing and ATT Data, Amazing Battery, LG Enhancements are useful and pretty, No Dedicated Camera Button, No Removable Battery, No Jelly bean yet

LG Optimus G review (AT&T and Sprint)

14 March 2013
  • Summary: In the Android world right now, all eyes are on LG. After years of sub-par products, the company has found relevance again with the Optimus G, garnering serious attention from US carriers and consumers alike. Available on both Sprint and AT&T in the US, the Optimus G is intriguing for another reason: it's widely rumored to be the basis for the next Nexus device from Google.
  • Pros: Great IPS display, Thin, elegant design, Very fast processor
  • Cons: Too many extra AT&T apps, Difficult to learn software, Finicky camera

LG Optimus G Review

13 March 2013
  • Summary: There’s no doubt the Optimus G is the best smartphone LG has ever made. We even think it looks and performs better than the Nexus 4, spare the regular and timely Android updates Google gives it.

LG Optimus G E975 Review

12 March 2013
  • Summary: The Optimus G is a great performer at Rs. 30,990. The preloaded skin has enough going for it that it can give the likes of TouchWiz and Sense UI a run for its money. The display of the smartphone is one of the best we have seen in its price range. On the downside, the camera on the Optimus G isn't the best and the build quality lacks polish. If you have a budget of Rs. 30,000 you can definitely add the Optimus G to your consideration list.
  • Pros: Excellent performance, Gorgeous display, Versatile skin with useful preloaded functions, Good audio output
  • Cons: Build could have been better, Camera performance isn't the best, No expandable storage

Review of the LG Optimus G (AT&T & Sprint)

3 January 2013
  • Conclusion: The Optimus G is one of the best smartphones LG has ever produced. It doesn't wow with looks, opting instead to impress with speed, performance, a beautiful display, and a good user experience. Among the big superphones out there it's not the flashiest, but stands up to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S III and the HTC One X. The question is then, Sprint or AT&T? If you already live in a city with Sprint's 4G LTE network, the Optimus G will serve you well.

LG Optimus G Review

7 December 2012
  • Summary: The LG Optimus G isn't a bad smartphone: it's fast, has a lot of storage, a good screen, and a decent (albeit not extraordinary) battery life. However, the two biggest features that are intended to make it stand out of the pack -- the quad core processor and the 13 megapixel camera -- both seriously fail to impress. And without those, there isn't really much to recommend it over other more noteworthy devices.

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

GSM Arena
16 November 2012
  • Conclusion: 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 top of your shopping list for smartphones. The raw performance of the LG Optimus G is nothing short of superb - you will never feel short on processing power with the latest quad-core silicon and 2GB of RAM at your service.
  • Pros: 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 upgrade to 4.1 Jelly Bean, LG Optimus UI 3.0, Quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait CPU, 2 GB RAM, Adreno 320 GPU, Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset, 13 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and geotagging, image stabilization, Time catch sh...
  • Cons: No microSD card slot on the Sprint version, No Jelly Bean at launch, Screens have mediocre sunlight legibility, Non user-replaceable battery
