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?

yea considering the fact that the picture only displays ONE PHONE when this is a comparison of 3 says alot about what the author feels or felt when making this article.........any way if The LG nexus 4 comes out with 16 gb internal and is priced at 400 then we will have a clear winner otherwise the Asus is looking better than the optimus right now.....i have to say.......But LG will still do good this is just trying to hurt there progression as they move forward

What does that even mean? You afraid iPhone will start losing it's sparkle? Oh,'s already starting to lose. It's just an add on, but don't be mislead by the word 'just' i use. It is a plus for who wants to have the best of both worlds. Those phones are Titans on the rise...can't wait to see every reviews.

Clear winner updates updates....updates for life The Nexus.... Has the best Samsung galaxy nexus is on 4.1.1 while newer phone running 2.3 or 4.0. the whole point of technology is to stay update...

8. XPERIA-KNIGHT unregistered

yea true! but the main issue with this nexus so far is it may only have 8gb internal storage.......but also we know it to be a prototype so that may very well change soon

Love the look of this device but will wait to read in depth review to see how much better intergrated version 2 is. There were some pretty major flaws with version 1 like poor phone battery life away from its docking station. For me it has to come out of the box with Jelly Bean.
