LG Optimus G vs Apple iPhone 5
Delivering voices that are clear, distinctive, and distortion-free on both ends of the line, the iPhone 5 shows its worth over the Optimus G in the call quality department. Specifically, LG’s offering is softened by the hollow voices heard through its earpiece, and the muffled tones our callers hear on their end. Interestingly, we notice some distortion with both their speakerphones at the loudest volume setting.


Relying on last-generation data speeds, as opposed to faster LTE since it’s not available in our area, we find the battery life of both smartphones to be on par with one another – giving us a single day of normal usage on a full charge. With heavier usage, though, we’re able to push through a good workday without the need of recharging. Still, you can expect those figures to drop tremendously if you’re on LTE.


As we factor in price point, both of which start at $199.99 on-contract, some might gather that there’s going to be more bang for the buck with the LG Optimus G according to its beefier specs sheet. Needless to say, it definitely helps its cause in making it more prized, but in all fairness, they’re both wonderful devices that execute highly in a variety of fronts. Ultimately, it’s yet again going to come down to which platform experience you’ll want to side with – the straightforward and simple nature of iOS, or the extensive personalization and multimedia feature of LG’s custom Android experience. Whichever device you decide to go with, you can expect them to still be relevant devices in the coming months.
