Apple iPhone 5s vs. LG G2 vs. Nokia Lumia 1020: War of the worlds

Apple iPhone 5s vs. LG G2 vs. Nokia Lumia 1020: War of the worlds

GSMArena team, 8 October 2013| comments (207)

You know what they say – three is a crowd. On a second thought though, no one here’s got romance on their mind. The three-horse race has had its highs and lows, but it’s the playoffs and we got a front-row seat. Each phone here will look...

LG G2 vs HTC One: Game of phones

GSMArena team, 25 September 2013| comments (99)

The LG G2 is the new pretender to the Android smartphone throne and one that enters the fray with a bang. Well aware of the challenge ahead – and determined to make it an opportunity – the G2 comes duly armed. Four Krait 400 cores on the...

Samsung Galaxy S4 vs. LG G2: Neighbor squabble

GSMArena team, 16 September 2013| comments (271)

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is the Android flagship to beat based on sheer sales, but the LG G2 one ups it in just about every way possible. Two South Korean neighbors and bitter rivals are once again standing in each other’s way, and for us, users, choosing a...

LG G2 review: Beautiful monster

GSMArena team, 07 September 2013| comments (284)

While other companies were bracing for war at the IFA 2013 expo and lining up their latest phablets, LG is getting ready to launch the G2 flagship. The Korean manufacturer did a few cool tricks to promote the beast, like shooting the Earth from the...

IFA 2013: LG G Pad 8.3 hands-on

GSMArena team, 05 September 2013| comments (24)

LG jumped the gun a little bit when it announced the LG G Pad 8.3 before IFA started, but now the company is giving it a proper introduction. The 8.3" tablet has been designed specifically to fit snugly in hands and pockets rather than for...

LG Optimus GJ review: Wild child

GSMArena team, 12 August 2013| comments (33)

Waterproof smartphones have become a growing trend this year, and it is slowly turning into a feature that is not so much a bonus as it is a requirement. Enter LG's Optimus GJ. The device is IPX7-certified...

GSMArena team, 21 March 2013| comments (234)

Back in 2011 the smartphone landscape was seemingly starting to settle, when Samsung stirred things up by taking a wild leap with the original Galaxy Note. The 5.3" slate was called a...

LG Optimus G Pro review: Proceed to checkout

GSMArena team, 8 March 2013| comments (79)

LG's first 1080p droid is also the company's first smartphone to cross the 5" mark, but a massive screen isn't the only thing that warrants the Pro tag. The LG Optimus G Pro boasts a new chipset too, and a significant software update over the...

LG Optimus G Pro preview: First look

GSMArena team, 27 February 2013| comments (114)

The newly announced Optimus G Pro books LG a spot in the Android hall of fame. A quad-core Snapdragon 600 chipset, a 5.5" FullHD display and a 13MP camera is the right kind of ammo of a proper flagship. The bar has been consitently raised...

MWC 2013: LG Optimus G, Vu, F and L series hands-on

GSMArena team, 25 February 2013| comments (23)

LG must have been charged for excess baggage – they brought a lot of phones. The LG Optimus G Pro super-phone stands at the front, followed by the Vu II, but the company also fleshed out its F and L series...

LG Optimus L9 review: Living large

LG Optimus L9 review: Living large

GSMArena team, 04 January 2013| comments (89)

The Optimus L9 is the latest addition to the L-series and rightfully takes charge of a lineup that's known for attractive styling and wallet-friendly prices. It obviously made no sense to LG to start from scratch and the L9 is happily reusing bits and parts from nearly all of its fairly recent smartphone siblings...

Google Nexus 4 vs. Samsung Galaxy S III: Fan favorites

GSMArena team, 21 December 2012| comments (146)

Android devices come from all walks of life, but in each generation there is a "chosen one". In 2012, it's the Nexus 4 and, as an overall package, this is probably the best Google has ever delivered. Yet, by a mean twist of fate, it has the most formidable...

Google Nexus 4 review: Royal road

GSMArena team, 07 December 2012| comments (161)

It's the next-generation Nexus and this time LG has the privilege. And when Google goes "My pleasure!", they most likely mean it. The Nexus 4 aggressively undercuts competitors' pricing as it sets out to wipe the floor with most of them in terms of speed and...

GSMArena team, 27 October 2012| comments (168)

LG is trying to recapture some old glory and released the first phone with Snapdragon S4 Pro - a next-generation chipset. The Samsung Galaxy S III has been out for several months now, but is still one of the best Androids on the market. Together...

GSMArena team, 22 October 2012| comments (236)

Designed to a flagship standard and powered by the latest in handheld computing, the Optimus G cannot hope for a warm welcome from rivals but is due every bit of their respect. LG is not asking for it – it’s getting ready to earn it...

LG Optimus G preview: A closer look

GSMArena team, 21 September 2012| comments (89)

LG has shown a serious commitment to pushing the limits of Android hardware. The first dual-core droid was manufactured by the Koreans and, while they showed up late to the quad-core party, they're back with a bang with the Optimus G - the first phone to...

LG just launched its monstrously-spec'd Optimus G in its homeland and set a new performance benchmark for smartphones. The Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset that powers the beast features four Krait cores, which are all but guaranteed to wipe the floor with existing CPUs...

LG Optimus Vu review: Vu from the top

GSMArena team, 6 July 2012| comments (35)

LG may have given up on tablets, but not on the Optimus Vu - it's halfway between a phone and a tablet, a hybrid of form factors that we like to call "phoneblets". The Samsung Note was one of the first, but that doesn’t mean it can have the market all for...

LG Optimus 4X HD P880 review: Firing on all fours

GSMArena team, 29 June 2012| comments (119)

Last year LG was in pole position in the dual-core game with the Optimus 2X. It was the phone everyone looked up to, before there was a Galaxy S II and before there was an HTC Sensation. There was obviously no rush this time although, to be fair, LG did announce well on time...

LG Optimus L7 review: L-egant droid

GSMArena team, 4 June 2012| comments (76)

A fashion phone for the designer-challenged. Last season's Prada at knockdown prices. The LG Optimus L7 will have to face comparisons with the latest Prada phone by LG and we cannot think of many that will swing in its favor. But there's no...

LG's Pre-MWC Media Preview gave us a chance to spend some time with the new line of Optimus devices. Not that there were any surprises, as the company was showcasing the already announced Optimus 4X HD, 3D Max, Optimus Vu and Optimus L3, L5 and L7. But still, it's nice to see them live.

LG Prada 3.0 review: Slim fit

GSMArena team, 23 February 2012| comments (27)

It's slim and smart, and wears Prada. This little devil is too sexy to hang out with the other droids. It puts on its evening shoes and goes to town. It hates being chased by paparazzi but always turns its better side to the cameras. We'll see what the other droids think about that...

Samsung Galaxy R vs. LG Optimus 2X: Affordable dual-cores

GSMArena team, 1 February 2012| comments (54)

Yep, you read that right. Affordable and dual core wouldn't normally belong in the same sentence. In 2011. And you don't need to press fast forward. Just sit back and enjoy. There's a lot stewing in the industry's pot and we think the place smells of quad core already...

GSMArena team, 13 January 2012| comments (77)

Done pushing megapixels and well into pixel popping, still the good old numbers game. HD screens are the next big thing and they'd better enjoy it while it lasts, with quad-core around the corner and all. Anyway, is it just another number to brag...
