LG has taken a backseat to the smartphone war over the last year or so, or at least it seems that way. When was the last time you heard about a really, really awesome Lhttp://techattitude.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=16280&action=editG phone? Can’t remember, right? Neither can I.
But out of nowhere, even with the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3 sucking up all the spotlight, LG has managed to stir up enough dust to make a splash with its latest flagship phone: the LG Optimus G.
Maybe it’s just me, but I think the Optimus G has a really good chance of being one of the best phones to come out this fall, and I’ll tell you why in a list of specs. Maybe you’ll see why:
- 1.5 Ghz Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core CPU
- Adreno 320 GPU
- 4G LTE
- 2 GB of RAM
- 4.7-inch True HD IPS+ display with a resolution of 1280 x 768 and 320 ppi
- 2,100 mAh battery
- 4.0 Android ICS-based skin (99.9 percent sure it’ll get Jellybean)
Did you see what I saw? 4G LTE and a quad-core processor in the same phone. How crazy is that?! In the past, LTE radios were only compatible with dual-core processors, which is why the Galaxy S3 has a dual-core processor and the international version has a quad-core processor.
In addition to the next-gen quad-core processor, you also get a great GPU, 2 GB of RAM (which only the S3 has at the moment), a huge screen that rivals the pixel density of the iPhone’s screen, and LTE all wrapped up in one gorgeous package.
The phone is also quite lightweight, right up there with HTC, and you still get the premium build quality that LG is known for.
Could the LG Optimus G beat the S3 when it comes out in a couple of months? Well, I sure hope so, because the S3 was released in July.
But I’m confident that the LG Optimus G will be one of the best phones to buy when it comes out. That’s almost a given.
