Sponsored ReviewBeing appointed LG ambassador, The Wacky Duo are allocated a LG Optimus G for review and use. Being non expert in the field of smartphones, I would not go into the technical specifics in the phone. You could probably find excellent reviews from CNET and Engadget . Rather for this review , I would highlight the key features of the new flagship phone from LG.This premium phone would be completing in similar price range and capability of Samsung S3 and the Iphone 5. Being classified in this pedigree class of smartphone, there is high expectations for this phone. Touted as the best LG phone ever produced by CNET when it was launched, we are pleased to receive this class act from LG.
The following few key features that makes the LG Optimus G a standout amongst its competitors.
Unparallelled Quad-Core LTE PerformanceLG Optimus G is Powered by Snapdragon S4? The aid-Core Krait CPU is tested and proven to be the most powerful and fastest processor build with the latest LTE capabilities. If you want the phone with the zippiest performance till date, don't settle for the second best. * (As of Feb 2013)LG Optimus G is also awarded the well known DL editor's choice award

Ultimate battery capacity and efficiency

However in terms of daily use, the battery drains much faster than what we were used to. I discovered that if live gallery is selected, battery lifespan reduce by 25% in a typical day. A lightly use phone can last 12 -14 hours fully charged.
Ultra high resolution and ultra slim cameraIf you love snapping pictures with the phone, the 13 MP will ensure you printable photo quality. Armed with functions such as smart shutter, time catch shot, live shot and cheese shutter, the phone is a viable camera alternative for those impromptu shots.

Perhaps LG should consider to change their slogan from Life's Good to Look's Good.
Greater user experiences with enhanced UX features for multi tasking and fun
With the extensive functions, it deserve a second look. I will be covering some of the features as we explore the phone over the next few weeks.
Free pick up and return service
We love the customized features of the phone, the speed and the enhanced UX features of the phone. Certain apps in Googleplay was a letdown compared to the same apps in IOS. In addition, although Google Play store claims to have more apps than IOS, it would seem that the offerings are a tad older compared to App Sore. This is of no fault of LG, but whatever works on android, works like a charm on this phone.LG Optimus G may not be as famous as its Android Brethren but it is the phone that converts a harden IOS user to Android latest fan. In the past, if you ask me if I would ever touch an Android phone, I would most likely say no. After this opportunity to review the LG, I would gladly take up the offer of having an Android phone... make that an LG Optimus G!
After all , with a name like Optimus, you are sure to be in the company of Greatness
