ronbaker33's review of the LG Optimus G (CDMA)

original version, submitted Mar 2, 2013, 6:06 AM:

Incredible!!!!

I made up my mind that it was either going to be this phone or the Samsung Galaxy III. I considered the Galaxy Note 2, however I thought that phone was a bit big. It's more of a tablet that has calling capabilities.

I chose the Optimus G. This phone is incredible. Great Screen. Super Fast! The camera is Amazing! I especially liked the fact that it didn't have a bunch Sprint bloat that came on my previous phones.

Calling is incredibly clear. It even has noise canceling capabilities if you use the speaker phone which the folks listening to you will especially appreciate.

It has a ton of internal storage. I can load all of my docs from my home computer on it, including pictures and some music and it doesn't slow down.

Some folks have complained about battery life but I have found it comparable to my girlfriends Galaxy III. Of course battery life is going to vary based on use and how much you have running in the background. It does have a built in feature that will turn off unnecessary apps while you sleep or when you need it to save battery life. I can generally go an entire without recharging. I recharge the phone while I sleep.

The only complaint I would have is that the phone is difficult to use at times for 1 hand operation. But, I am a smaller guy. I'm only 5"9" so I guess I am smaller than the average. If I were a bit bigger the phone might fit in my hand better.

The external speaker works well if the unit is held in your hand, but if you put it on the table, the sound is considerably muffled.

I have had the phone just a little over a week and I am still getting to know the phone. I will provide an update when I am more familiar with this phone. I hope this helps.
