LG Optimus G: First Impressions

(Daddy blogs)

Having never used a LG phone my entire life, I was extremely excited when LG Mobile Singapore appointed me as a LG Blog Ambassador for its latest flagship smartphone, the LG Optimus G.

I got the phone last week and have been playing with it ever since. Over the course of the next few weeks, I will share in detail about the various features and performance of the phone. But my first impressions of the phone?

Neatly-built, the phone looks classy. It has an edge-to-edge sheet of Gorilla Glass in the front, which makes the screen scratch-resistant, and a back panel using crystal reflection material. For me, I felt extremely comfortable holding it in my palm, thanks to its subtly curved edges where the sides meet the back.

Display-wise, the LG Optimus G sports a 4.7-inch 1280-by-768-pixel True HD IPS Plus WXGA LCD that uses LG's new 'Zerogap Touch' technology - which is LG's way of saying that it minimized the air gap between the screen and the glass surface to improve the durability and clarity of the display.

And because of that, I have to admit I was very impressed with its touchscreen. Swiping left and right on the LG Optimus G was incredibly fast and smooth. And thanks to its powerful quad-core CPU, Snapdragon™ S4 Pro processor, the phone performance was very zippy and responsive.

I am using both an iPhone 4S and a Samsung Galaxy SIII and it may be early days yet... but personally, I have no qualms replacing either of my current smartphones with the Optimus G. So I guess that really summarises my impression of the Optimus G for now. Stay tuned for my upcoming in-depth reviews of the phone!

As for the boys, the notion of having a brand new smartphone in the house is always a tantalising prospect. For one, the name has already made the boys fall in love with it.... all thanks to a fave Transformer who share part of the same name as the phone!
