Although it's already flooded with a slew of excellent devices, the smartphone market has shown no signs of letting up. While Samsung and Apple are dominating the charts in terms of global hardware market share, Android's continued rise in the smartphone space has also been bolstered by devices from companies like HTC, Sony, and LG. In fact, LG was the company chosen to produce the most recently released Nexus-branded smartphone, the powerful Nexus 4.

LG's Optimus G is undoubtedly the company's flagship Android phone for the moment. We say "for the moment," because that may change if LG introduces the new Nexus phone. At any rate, the superphone will soon be hitting Sprint and AT&T, and both carriers will be selling it for $199.99 on a 2-year agreement. One of the hallmark features is the 13MP camera on the rear, coupled with a 4.7" (1280x768) display on the front. Other specs include Android 4.0, a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4, 2GB of RAM and LTE. Of note, the AT&T model gets downgraded to an 8MP camera, oddly. As for dates? Sprint... Read more...

It's getting a bit of help this week with the support of AT&T, which has just announced that the high-end LG Optimus G will be coming to its airwaves soon.

The company's new flagship LTE smartphone is a serious beast under the hood, with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor (1.5GHz) pushing things. There's also a whopping 2GB of RAM, a 13MP camera and Android 4.0. You may wonder why Jelly Bean wasn't included, but we're guessing that LG spent too much time tweaking 4.0 to just toss 4.1 on there at the last moment. The company is clearly pushing the software differences here, with the new UX at the heart of the marketing efforts. Other specs include a 1.3MP front camera,... Read more...
