Asus Padfone 2 vs LG Optimus G vs LG Nexus 4: spec comparison

Asus Padfone 2 vs LG Optimus G vs LG Nexus 4: spec comparison
The Asus PadFone 2 is now official and it might just beat the LG Optimus G to become the first phone out there with Qualcomm's extremely powerful Snapdragon S4 APQ8064 quad-core chip. Not just that - both devices go neck to neck in terms of performance, and will probably be one of the hottest devices this Holiday season.

The PadFone 2 covers everything that you might wish for. Starting with the larger, 4.7-inch 720p screen, going through the 2GB of RAM and quad-core chip, and finishing with the 13-megapixel camera.

The PadFone 2 however has the unique advantage of the PadFone Station, a $210 accessory that is a tablet chassis. What this means is that for $210 more dollars, you get a 10.1-inch 1280x800-pixel screen with a 5,000mAh battery, that is powered by your phone.

How does it fare against devices like the LG Optimus G and the LG Nexus 4? We only have the preliminary specs of the Nexus 4 (those are likely to change), but we'd still like you to see the three devices go in a cold-blooded spec battle. Witness it in the tablet below, and don't hesitate to let us know: which one wins your heart?
