LG Optimus G Specs


hope so! also good to know that if LG is in the running or making a Nexus device that it'll look good!

Of course it will. The only reason previous quad core phones didn't have LTE is because Tegra 3 and Exynos quad core chips don't incorporate that radio. So OEM's had to use the Snapdragon S4 dual core chips which have it integrated for carriers that wanted LTE. With the direction the market is headed and Qualcomm's past history, no way they would release a quad core without LTE built it. I think it's pretty much guaranteed.

Hm. Those specs pretty much outclass S3, iP5, Lumia 920. I wonder how it'll do when it comes out. I do remember having a great LG phone many years back and being fond of them.

Have had the phone for about two weeks. So far pretty rock solid. Fast with gorgeous display. Very solid build. Home button a little wonky (sometimes need to tap it twice for response); not sure if that is a result of updating the phone to 4.1.2 JB.

I use a brightness widget. The phone does not seem to work too well on auto brightness (never brightens the screen enough in strong light). This is actually not such a big deal. At 75% brightness, the screen is visible in direct midday sun and battery drain is remarkably little affected. Battery life blows the doors off my old HTC Inspire. Including stand-by (over night, off charger) I hit 48% charge after 20 hours on battery only!

Gmail has a weird bug (again, could be the JB update) and my notification keeps asking me to select input type even though I've set Swiftkey as my default. Everything else on the phone is so nice and smooth, I think these outlying issues seem more pronounced than they are.

Hopefully, LG does not forget about this device and continues to roll out patches and OS updates.
