LG Optimus G officially coming to the US in Q4, different carrier versions in tow
posted by Daniel P. / Sep 19, 2012, 8:23 AM
Previously we've heard November, and that's a good ballpark estimate, considering that LG plus carriers want to catch the busiest shopping time of the year, which will pit it directly against phones like the Galaxy Note II and Lumia 920, also expected around that time, not to mention the current Android darling Galaxy S III, or Apple's finest.
These different carrier versions might very well affect mostly the camera department, as there is an option with 8MP cam, which is flush with the back of the unibody Optimus G, and likely cheaper, plus a 13MP variant, which word around the camp fire is the one heading to Verizon as the Blaze. For more info on the best Android can offer, read our thorough preview of the LG Optimus G.

- Camera 13 MP / 1.3 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, Quad-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2100 mAh(15h talk time)

Man this LG is sounding great. I've never had an LG phone before. Can anyone tell me their thoughts?

I've loved every LG phone I've ever owned, although the Chocolate Touch was a bit rough. I liked my Revolution and I'm fine with the Spectrum, but this thing blows everything away. I'm just skeptical of phones with built-in batteries...it's like saying: "great...you can get along for more than two years with a phone? Not if you can't buy a new battery, pal...". Piss.

Okay now I have a really think this out and do my research on the LG, Samsung or the dreaded iphone 5...good thing I have time until two of these phones come to the market. I'm leaning more towards quality over features

I have the Galaxy Nexus now for Verizon and I am really leaning towards the LG Optimus G. But I really ant to see what Google will offer with the new Nexus phone. I think after LG all newer phone will come with the S4 pro and LTE. Even Samsung is including the 1.6ghz quad core exynos with verizon lte, something they were not able.to offer with the s3...

Seems like LG wants back in the game again. I guess that management shake up was the best thing that happen to LG. I used to own many LG phones such as the LG chocolate ( never updated and fell behind, LG's mentality if you want updates buy a new phone) LG Dare ( never updated and fell behind, LG's mentality if you want updates buy a new phone) and LG Arena( never updated and fell behind, LG's mentality if you want updates buy a new phone). LG's track record for updates and user support was pathetic. I vowed never again to get and LG phone I moved to the iPhone 3gs and Later iPhone 4. I still have that sour taste in my mouth from LG. however, this device looks great. but I think the Samsung Note II is my next phone/tablet.
