Review: LG Optimus G for AT&T

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  1  

Wow, LG. Well done. I've been disappointed with nearly every smartphone made by LG for the last few years. The Optimus G erases those failures and elevates the game. The Optimus G may not be perfect, but it is as close as LG has ever come to perfection.

The Optimus G is a solid competitor to the Galaxy S III, HTC One X, and iPhone 5. I like the G's hardware much more than I do the GS3 and I'd put it on par with the iPhone 5. The screen is killer; the voice/signal performance very good; the build quality the best to come from LG's manufacturing facilities; and the 8-megapixel camera is very competitive. I do wish battery life were a bit better, though.

AT&T's version of the Optimus G is clearly better when it comes to the hardware, but its UI tweaks are more annoying than those made by Sprint. Any way you look at it, the LG Optimus G is a looker and a performer.
