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.
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.
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.
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
Conclusion: With the Optimus G, LG has made two significant achievements. First, it’s surprised us -positively- at nearly every turn, helping to brighten the company’s tarnished reputation. The Optimus G is to LG what the One X was to HTC earlier this year: a return to esteem following a fall from grace. For the first time in a while, it feels like LG is on the right track.
Pros: Beautiful, premium design, Class-leading hardware with quad-core CPU and LTE, Stable, incredibly responsive, customizable software, Better than average battery life, Gorgeous display
Cons: -esque “Wise Screen” feature, fall somewhat short of original. Others are less-dazzling and more utilitarian, like the revamped, friendlier settings menu and the screenshot-doodle app “QuickMemo.” Still others find a kind of middle ground, inspired by an idea from elsewhere but taken in another direction., - resistance to the idea of a non-removable battery., All-glass design is slippery, slightly wider than global version for no good reason, Low-quality speakerphon...
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
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.
