LG is trying to compete with the leading smartphone manufacturers as successfully as possible. From time to time, this South Korean company achieves success, although it happens that from time to time certain models of this company simply do not come to the fore in the market. A slightly different situation could be when it comes to the LG Optimus G. It is a model from which this manufacturer expects a lot. Why is that?
The LG Optimus G and Google Nexus 4 share the same foundation
LG Optimus G The LG Optimus G is a phone manufactured on the trail of Google’s pet Nexus 4. LG once received an assignment from Google to make the said phone for their needs. Therefore, we should not be surprised that these two phones share the same “glass” design and identical 4.7-inch IPS screen. It is interesting that both phones have a rear reflective panel, so when you hold them in a certain way, they shine, which is a cool phenomenon for sure.
LG Optimus G design
The stainless steel edge, which runs along the entire circumference of the phone, has made sure that the LG Optimus G is not as fragile as glass. In addition to the protective role, this accessory also had a positive effect on the appearance, and holding the phone in your hand is also pleasant.

LG Optimus G memory
The LG Optimus G is equipped with classic “hard” keys, and the microSD port is located on the side. It can be accessed with a pin or some other sharp and thin object (i.e., something like an iPhone) to get more space compared to the factory 32GB. Positioning the microSD port is understandable if we know that the phone is “sealed” and cannot be opened. However, if we remember that 32GB is enough for every normal user, it is clear that there will probably be no need to buy a card.
LG Optimus G camera
LG Optimus G When it comes to the camera, the LG Optimus G has two. The first is the one with 13MP supported by LED flash, while the second is at a decent 1.3MP. LG seems to have made an effort to finally realize its promises to install a slightly stronger camera in some of its phones, so the LG Optimus G, at least in this segment, can compete with the best from Samsung, Sony, but also the Apple family. Some would say that LG is a bit late with this camera and this phone in general, but if we keep in mind our purchasing power, it seems that this is not the case with us.
LG Optimus G Conclusion
To summarize the impressions of the design. Despite these little things that mean life to the LG Optimus G, one gets the impression that the phone has remained somehow stuck in a somewhat conservative understanding of the design that is forcing LG. We think that LG fell for the small thing, because if he was already trying to “decorate” the phone with good details, then he could work a little on the shape and on breaking the monotony of black.
The LG Optimus G is one of the best models that come to us from this company. It is an extremely powerful device that runs on a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor that has a clock speed of 1.5GHz. Thanks to that, the phone responds adequately to all tasks and simply gives the impression of raw power, which is waiting for the opportunity to show itself at any moment. Therefore, multitasking is a cat’s cough for him. Despite minor objections, enough attention has been paid to its design, and after all, the phone itself has such a specification and such characteristics that it can rightly be classified as high class. All in all, the LG Optimus G is a realized phone, which in a way offers what the Galaxy S3 or, say, the HTC One X do (see their detailed specifications HERE ).
