We are live at MobileCON in sunny San Diego! The night is young and there is much to see, but we could not help but stop by and say hi to the mighty LG Optimus G. This is the first device to feature a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor with LTE support, so it is as fast as you can imagine.

And when we say fast we mean it. This device flies. Multi-tasking is also aided by the 2 GB of RAM, making this smartphone one of the hottest we have seen this year. The display is bright and vibrant, and though it lacks the saturated colors of AMOLED panels, the HD screen does lack the pentile matrix and has very realistic and vivid colors.

It is important to note the device is very thin and light, but it definitely does not feel cheap. We can honestly say that Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 felt much cheaper. The back was made of plastic, but of a very high quality kind. Seems almost like the iPhone4/4s glass back, but lacking its fragility.

We have to say, we are rather impressed with this one, guys. It is fast, it is well-made and it is over all a great smartphone compared to the competition. That is, if you can overlook LG’s commonly disliked manufacturer UI. There is nothing like stock Android, for sure, but LG’s UI brings some cool features along with eye candy. Check it out for yourself in the video below and let us know what you think!
