Video: LG Takes Us on a 6-Minute Tour of the Optimus G

We just left the LG Optimus G event in NYC and will have video and photos from it up shortly, but for now, we recommend that you watch this video that LG has put together. While this phone boasts some of the most impressive specs on the planet, LG didn’t want to stop there. They created an entirely new UX with interactive features that help you “cross-task.”  (more…)

LG: Optimus G Hitting U.S. Shores in November

In case you were wondering, the LG Optimus G will arrive on U.S. soil some time in November. No carrier partners have been announced for the beastly phone, but since it’s an LTE device, that at least narrows it down to Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint, doesn’t it? We are hoping to find out for sure tomorrow, when LG and Qualcomm take the stage in NYC to talk about the device.

At the end of August, and just before the start of IFA in Berlin, LG announced the Optimus G. At the time, I referred to it as a “beast” because of its insane specs and the fact that the phone is the first to sport Qualcomm’s new quad-core Snapdragon S4 with an Adreno 320 GPU. Beyond the processor, it also has a 4.7″ True HD IPS display with 320ppi and will look equally as good as the new iPhone 5 display because it’s full sRGB.

We’re talking a serious phone here, folks.  (more…)

LG Announces a Beast Phone in the Optimus G – Quad-core Snapdragon, 4.7″ Display, 2GB of RAM, and LTE

If LG is ever going to make a splash in the Android game, it’s going to need to do something crazy, something that can blow people’s minds. With the announcement of the Optimus G, they may be well on their way. Sporting a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor (APQ8064), there is no doubt that this is the most powerful smartphone in the world at this time. This processor alone, should be up to 40% more efficient and powerful than any other quad-core processor on the market. The GPU inside (Adreno 320) should also be the best in the business.  (more…)
