LG Optimus G vs Apple iPhone 5

Boom! Just like that folks, LG managed to bring to market a compelling flagship device that has proven itself in being capable of tangling with its highly esteemed rivals. Featuring that oh-so lovable tandem consisting of a quad-core processor and 4G LTE connectivity, the LG Optimus G seems poised to try to make the still relatively new iPhone 5 shudder in its tracks. Therefore, without any further wait, we’re pitting these two respectable members of the premier club against one another...

They do it by the rating they give the phone in the review.
IPhone 5= 9
LG Optimus G= 9

You gotta be completely NUTS to give your money for a cheap plastic thing like this LG or a Samsung or any kind of such device. Especially when the price is similar. To buy this its price must be at least two times lower than the iPhone's and it will still be not sure.

For starters the fingerprints and smudges was never a issue with THe Iphone 4s when it had glass.
(iPhone 5’s set are a bit more pronounced.) really how so? Biased review already. Now coming to Proccessor wise they both perform the same?
Are you high? Your taking a Proccessor that was built specifically for that SIMPLE Ios, and comparing it to one that
has a more complex OS and a custom UI over it. In real terms the LG is much better game player. DOnt even get me started on the camera.
Let me guess you took 100 picutres with the iphone to get the best one without purple tint and took the first one with the LG.

iJohn V is a big apple fanboy which would be okay if apple didn't price the iphones like they were made of gold.

No need to take a hundred shots with the iphone5 to get best picture because they already know how to set it up form the other iphones, no changes.

Optimus G boasts NFC, WI-FI Direct, a Micro SD card (AT&T), MHL, DLNA. IPhone may have a slightly better camera and audio but it is extremely limited in terms of connectivity. I like the idea QSlide being able to take screenshots of anything and doodle on them. Plus the display on the Optimus really does look better and who doesn't like customization. If you want a fashion statement get an IPhone, if you want a better cell get the Optimus.
