Well, all I can say that this is the best phone I have ever had. Its so fast, lag free, very bright screen and worth the money. Lg really did a fantastic job. Just want to see how they keep pace with other rival companies when it comes to software update in India..
Ravi1234, 23 Mar 2013Best done in 2012 but hard to see compete with HTC one, s iv , xperia z, with screen and other... morePersonally, I think that the 720p screen of mobile phone is enough for video watching.
Mobile Phone only has a small size screen, compared to PC's, and 1080p screen should be more like a market motivation.
We use the phone for life better, not for the specification, is that so?
Lol,do you think quad-core is not enough?This shows how much you know about mobile industry.
You can have 16cores cpu and 12 cores gpu,but if the apps are not optimized for that hardware,it's useless.We don't all apps optimized for dual core,the support for quad is less, and you are worried about octa core?sure, if you have the money,you can buy every new gadget,but an otimized dual core beats a crappy quad.same for octa.the problem is not on the hardware side my friend,but on software.look at Apple products.an iphone 3gs still has amazing apps,although it's quite obsolete.Maybe manufacturers should focus more on the software side or,at least on the battery and the build matterials. A quad core with 2gb ram is more than enough for at least 2-3 years.
The rest is marketing.
prime2013, 23 Mar 2013i love this phone but can't afford to buy, have to wait for the F7 which is cheaper but has a ... moreDid u read the lines at all, fellow? They both spot similar 4.7" screen.
Guys am scared abt buying a dualcore phone especially now octa's are appearing. Next year may bring more of this octa... and i stil want a device that can tak me as far as 2-3yrs. I don't want to go into oblivion so soon with de dualcore f7. However i liked it, It has got just evrythin i wanted, removable batt, s.d slot but looks a tad behind with dualcore soc. In contrast thoug, optG packs almost all the necessities but lacks s.d slot. Why why why....lg why?
I just cant see a phone with satisfactory specs except Gpro, again it has got de problem=size. Oh Lg do somethin abt this Cos i realy want to upgrade from this old nokia n8. android almost screams my name in dreamz.
And i love u Lg above all de others. You hve my support. You'll eat my money. But improv. I hope to see further userfriendly devices perhaps with tegra4 soc.
Anonymous, 19 Mar 2013I have been unable to use this phone with microsoft outlook. Has anyone else had this problem? Being an Android phone, you can't use Outlook. Only Windows Mobile phones can use Outlook.
i love this phone but can't afford to buy, have to wait for the F7 which is cheaper but has a larger and removable battery. with lesser power demand it will remain powered while it handsome sibling G is resting.
Best done in 2012 but hard to see compete with HTC one, s iv , xperia z, with screen and other hardware, though this has good screen quality but 720 p bit old for the competition

[deleted post]and I care what you think because....? Trollers gonna troll I guess.
Fyi that a new very recent rom is available for 973 users..
AOKP 4.2.2 Seems to be working well from what users are saying,. Obviously this is for users who have rooted/freegee'd their device.
Anonymous, 13 Mar 2013Optimus G was proven BETTER THAN S3 . G Pro is THE BEST PHABLET but not competing to s4.... moreThis one is better than Sony Xperia z though it has some low specifications then z but the battery is excellent G either in 2g or 3G the phone is doing good
fun, 08 Mar 2013Is Samsung galxy S3 better that this ?
how about waiting for optimus g pro / s4 .
Please ... moreOptimus G was proven BETTER THAN S3 .
G Pro is THE BEST PHABLET but not competing to s4.
wait for Optimus G2 to compete with s4.
I know this is a review of the e-973 but since you included notation of the camera variance between cariers you really should have noted the media card slot on the at&t version. Also both the front and back ate made of Corning gorilla glass 2 just to be specific. Otherwise great review I have ordered my g and wait with much anticipation.
