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: 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: The LG Optimus G brings power and performance in a $199 package. The quad-core CPU handles some of the most demanding tasks with ease. The 4.7-inch display is stunning, and paired with a 13-MP camera, this phone is great for capturing and viewing photos and videos. LG's suite of Android customizations and features adds even more value, but for now this handset is held back by Sprint's limited 4G LTE network.
Excerpt: 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 LG’s renewed focus on high-end handsets. The Optimus G is the company’s first attempt at creating its own dominant flagship device that may develop the following of an iPhone 5 or a Galaxy S3. But is it worth the hype?
Conclusion: LG's finally cracked the high end market with the Optimus G. While other LG Android smartphones have looked good on paper, the Optimus G actually delivers a captivating experience with enjoyable software additions and superlative performance. The 4.7" IPS display is among the best and the phone is good looking too. One caveat, this is a big phone with none of the curvy tricks others employ to make it look and feel smaller.
Pros: Excellent display, super-fast, nice software additions, good looking.
Cons: Big phone, battery life falls slightly behind the competition (but only slightly).
Summary: The $199 LG Optimus G is a powerhouse packaged in an unassuming shell. The quad-core CPU can easily handle the most demanding games without breaking a sweat, and enables multitasking features like Q Slide for watching videos even while you use other apps. The 4.7-inch display is gorgeous (and brighter than the S III ), and the camera can compete with any Android phone on the market.
