LG Optimus G External Features

The LG Optimus G really is a sharp looking phone, though I suppose it’s kind of hard not to be when it is mostly screen these days. The Optimus G measure 5.15″(H) x 2.82″(W) x 0.33″, the screen measures 4.7″ diagonally. The LG Optimus G uses LG’s Zerogap Touch technology that puts the capacitive layer right inside the non-PenTile screen and allows for an ultra thin display. The LG Optimus G screen has a resolution of 1280×768 pixels and provides very nice, crisp and bright colors.

The only markings on the front of the LG Optimus G is the LG Logo top center of the phone. On the upper right corner of the Optimus G we can see the 1.3 Megapixel front facing camera that is ideal for video chatting.

Along the bottom of the LG Optimus G there are three capacitive buttons. The left is the back butting, center is the home button, and the right is the menu button. The only issue I had with these buttons is that they aren’t always lit up, only when the back light is on. Whether they are lit up or not they always function, I just kept forgetting which side was the button that I needed and the exact position of the button.

The back of the LG Optimus G features an 8mp camera that can also shoot high definition videos at 1080P. The default video resolution is 1280 x 720, so if you’re looking to shoot at 1920×1080 you will have adjust the settings. The 8MP camera has a default resolution of 3264 x 2448 which also happens to be the maximum. Just below the camera lens, we can find the single LED flash to light up the pictures.

Hidden underneath the side cover on the Optimus G we can find the Micro Sim as well as the Micro SD card. As we mentioned on the first page, the LG Optimus G includes a 16Gb Micro SD card, but it can be upgraded to a 64Gb should you so choose.>

This side of the LG Optimus G is pretty bare with the exception of the power button that also acts as the screen lock.
