The AT&T LG Optimus G

One of AT&T’s latest flagship 4G LTE phones is the LG Optimus G. It is one of the first phones to offer the full quad core Snapdragon processors running at 1.5GHz. It has 16GB of internal flash storage that is expandable via a micro SD slot on the side of the phone which AT&T ships with an extra 16GB card in.

This device puts everything in your pocket, ranging from Wireless N capabilities to an 8 megapixel camera as well as Near Field Communications, all with superior gaming performance with the snapdragon processor. Connecting to the computer is as simple as using any micro USB cable, however for charging you will want to use the supplied wall adapter for the fastest charge. In the event you need to save power the phone has an “Eco Mode” which will reduce processor usage and extend the battery life in exchange for application performance.

The only major downside to this phone is that it is currently stuck on an older version of the Android operating system, 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. However there is rumor that LG will be pushing an update to the US market in the first or second quarter of 2013 – of which they have already started rolling out in South Korea.

The AT&T version of the LG Optimus G is available at most of their stores for $99 with contract renewal, otherwise it is a $449 phone.
