Review: LG Optimus G for Sprint
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, EVO 4G LTE, 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 outstanding, and the build quality the best to come from LG's manufacturing facilities. I do wish battery life were a bit better, though.
If you're thinking the 13-megapixel shooter is the killer feature here, don't. It's certainly good, but not that good. Any way you look at it, the LG Optimus G is a looker and a performer.
