LG Optimus G unboxing

LG Optimus G unboxing
There is a lot to love about the newly-announced LG Optimus G. For starters, it is equipped with the very capable quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chip by Qualcomm, which, to no surprise, is shaping up to be a true heavyweight performer, judging by those benchmark results. Then we have the 4.7” WXGA (1280 x 768) True HD IPS display, which impressed us with its clarity and crispness while we were doing our Optimus G hands-on. All those goodies, including a 13-megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM, and a 2,100mAh battery are enclosed inside a body sporting LG’s patented Crystal Reflection finish. 

But in case you're wondering what's included in the smartphone's retail box, here we have the answer in our LG Optimus G unboxing video. First thing that gets revealed is, unsurprisingly, the smartphone itself, with the usual set of accessories neatly organized underneath - a stereo headset with in-ear headphones, wall charger, and a microUSB cable. In addition, an extraction tool has been included for ejecting the SIM card tray.

Note that the LG Optimus G we are handling in the video is the white model, which will be available in Korea. However, it is likely that the smartphone will be available in black only upon launching in the U.S. in Europe, or at least initially. Speaking of which, the Optimus G is scheduled to launch in Korea before September is out, followed by a release in Japan in October, and an international rollout afterwards. At this time, there is no word regarding U.S. availability of the LG Optimus G. The LG Optimus G will land in the U.S. this November.

When LG released the LG G2X (Optimus 2X). It was touted as the most powerful phone ever. However, there are other things to consider when getting a phone. The G2X suffered from rebooting and freezing issues. Also, the carriers in the states haven't updated it to Ice Cream Sandwich. I can only hope that LG has addressed these issues with this phone, however I'll never buy a LG phone again.

Great specs. But cannot risk issues with the finished product so will wait for reviews on reviews.

True, but it's like buy a car from a crappy manufacture. As long as you like it, it's okay :D I wouldn't mind to try it out, who knows. Maybe LG will be the next Samsung or Apple one day. Companies rise and fall as time goes on

So...did PA just stand off to the side at an event, get one in a box, and make an "unboxing" video? Did you? Really? An "unboxing" makes it sound like you received one for testing. Of course that did not happen. Of course he never used the phone. Of course he never even took the sticker off as IT IS NOT HIS HANDSET. To "unbox" is to unwrap and USE, not just take it out of the box. So sad. Gonna pretend to have used the handset and post the rating?

I agree. When I saw "Unboxing" I was like OMG..WOW...then I watched him pull it out the box, cut it on and that was it...I'm like...um....that was NOT an unboxing!

It looks like the digital scale I measure my weight with, completely flat with dimpled look. I stand on the back and the little screen goes up.
