LG's New Flagship Phone, Optimus G

After the Optimus 4X HD, LG has announced yet another monster smartphone, the Optimus G.

When it comes to releasing quality phones, LG, a South Korea-based company, is one of those makers. But for some reason it still struggles to gain a significant market share in the smartphone race.

Optimus G displays a 4.7-inch True HD IPS Plus screen with 1280x768 pixel. This new smartphone will be powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor. An Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich will run on this device. No word yet if an upgrade to Jelly Bean will be available in the future but most likely LG will do something about it after the release as most smartphones of this type are running JellyBean.

2GB of RAM will also be under its hood and a 32GB flash storage space, however a microSD slot for memory expansion seems to be not available in this one, which for me would be a not so good to hear. It would seem hard for me to transfer my content from a removable SD card to this phone if that's the case. A smartphone user like me uses a microSD card so when I change phone, transferring what are already in
there would be easy.

Back and front camera are of course present in this newest LG phone, sporting a 13megapixel auto-focus dual-LED flash with the front one at 1.3MP. Talking about connectivity, bluetooth is always there, 2G 3G
and LTE are supported by Optimus G plus the now-popular NFC Technology is available as well in this phone.

One of the features that I think is very interesting to experience on this handset is what they call the Qslide App with picture-in-picture functionality which enables users to do apps-multitasking such as
composing a text message while watching a video or browsing or surfing the net while watching a video on this phone.
