While LG might be a name that most people do not immediately think of when buying a smartphone, they still produce good quality ones. A new flagship device by the South Korean company is the LG Optimus G and with this being said and done, you are looking at a powerful device as well. It comes with a quad-core processor, a sufficiently big screen as well as a powerful camera as well.
The LG Optimus G comes with a 4.7-inch 720p True HD IPS PLUS display. In addition to that, its 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor will ensure that everything will speedy. It also has LTE, 2GB worth of RAM. Storage wise, you are looking at 32GB worth of it. The best feature might be its camera as its sensor is capable of shooting up to 13-megapixel photos. As far as its profile is concerned, it is only 8.45mm thin and weighs only 145g making it rather portable as well.
There has yet to be definite release dates of the LG Optimus G but expect some of the many carriers to bring it at a subsidized price. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative than the S III, then the Optimus G might be a good alternative.
