LG Mobile Communications Company results improved significantly in the first quarter, recording revenues of KRW 3.21 trillion (USD 2.96 billion) on smartphone shipments of 10.3 million units, an increase in revenue of 28.5 percent from the same period last year. Healthy sales of LTE smartphones such as the Optimus G and Optimus G Pro along with 3G smartphones including the Optimus L Series and Nexus 4 contributed to the improved results. Operating profit increased almost four-fold from the same period last year to KRW 133 billion (USD 122.69 million) thanks to stronger revenue and better cost structure. The company expects to further increase shipments and sales in the second quarter with the worldwide rollout of Optimus L SeriesII targeting 3G markets with the 5.5-inch Full HD IPS Optimus G Pro and Optimus F Series in countries with 4G LTE networks.
I've heard LG is preparing an impossibly thin successor to the G. Well, i'm not excited about it. They should put at least 3500mAh removable battery with 10mm thickness but a smaller footprint like the Xperia ZL, it's more practical rather than a thin smartphone with a lame battery.

marcelobibiano, 22 Apr 2013Nexus 4 or Optimus G? Help me please....if you want more extra memory? go for optimus g. but if 16gb is enough for you? go for n4.
I use nokia & lg phone side by side..my old optimus 2x never disappointed me..now i own that phone..it is fantastic...batteryback up good & powerful.. Lg life is great...
I am starting to like my Optimus G even more every day now.
The Xperia Z looks washed out and too much white whilst Optimus G is very neutral. The HTC One has poor camera and the Optimus G keeps winning in every area...
Also the recharge time for Optimus G is like an hour and half to get to full not like 3~4hrs for HTC One.
Optimus G - Life's great

In terms of battery life, perhaps you are in poor reception area? I can vouch 150% for the 2 day battery life on mine and have repeated it several times. Maybe your device is an early version release as mine is built March 15, 2013.
Anonymous, 20 Apr 2013I agree with you exactly the same performance here. 2 days battery use ; no heat issues, LG -... moreHow can you go through to 2 days? Me only 1 day. Did many thing like activate my eco mode, turn internet off in.night, use 2x battery. Also put brightness only 30%. I guess it might because i do internet many times.

"There is a single LED flash, but as usual it won't be of much help in most low-light situations." I would very much like to contest this statement. Being an Optimus G user for the past two months, one of the things that I am probably most proud of would be the LED flash. Don't believe? Pit all the 13 megapixel shooters together and test the flash strength. So far I have only managed to compare the Optimus G against the Xperia Z, and the flash alone beats the Xperia Z hands down.
