While Apple with its iPhone 5 has 'vainly' tried to counter its close competitor Samsung's Galaxy S III and the war of the phones continues between the two, LG has also stepped into the war by launching their Optimus G - a smartphone that is being dubbed as 'the' most powerful smartphone in the world.
|LG's monstrous Optimus G: A new market threat to Apple and Samsung|
Soon after the launch of this monstrous, yet elegant smartphone by LG yesterday in Korea, the benchmark assessment of the Optimus G has really flabbergasted analysts and I am sure Apple and Samsung as well. Although Apple's iPhone 5 is a different class with a different OS exclusive to it, Optimus G falling in the same category of Samsung's Galaxy S III will surely pose a greater threat to Samsung in the smartphone category.
Only 8.45mm thin, Optimus G offers a 4.7-inch WXGA True HD IPS Plus display offering up 1280 x 768 pixels. The LG smartphone, fitted with a 13 MP back camera and 1.3 MP front snapper, has a 2GB of RAM, which, combined with the S4 chip, will allow even greater efficiency when multi-tasking.

However, LG 's Optimus G has made its mark and gadget hobbyists and geeks will find it interesting to handle and bring out its true worth when it is launched later this year.
