First Look: AT&T's LG Optimus G packs a quad-core punch.

2:11 /

The LG Optimus G from AT&T has an 8-megapixel camera, a zippy quad-core CPU, and a gorgeous 4.7-inch display.

-Packs with a quad-core CPU, a gorgeous True HD IPS Display and 4G LTE speeds, LG's flagship phone of the season is finally here. Hello everybody, it's Lynn La here with CNET bringing you guys the LG Optimus G with AT&T. Now, the Optimus G has been branded by LG as its new superphone mainly because it host a qualcomm snapdragon S4 pro quad-core processor which means it's impressively fast. Not only were simple tasks like unlocking the device or launching the camera snap, but the handset executed more complex things like running a graphic intense game like RipTide GP smoothly as well. The phone also hosts an impressive 4.7-inch true HD IPS display that uses touch hybrid display technology to keep it slim. And as you can see, pictures are bright text is crisp and colors are true to form. It's made out of corning Gorilla glass 2.0 which just so happens to be what the back play is made out of too. In addition to the 1.3 megapixel front facing camera, AT&T Optimus G has an 8 megapixel camera in the back. And while the camera operated quite swiftly, the pictures didn't really astound us. Don't get us wrong, they're perfectly adequate pictures but they didn't wow us in any particular way. Other goodies include LG's Note taking feature Quick Memo, a CPU optimizer and FC capabilities, pinch zooming for recorded video, customizable icons from LG's Optimus 3.0UI and Q slide which lets you multi-task and access other apps while playing a video in the background. Unfortunately, LG has told us that there are no pricing or release date information just yet but we do know that Sprint will also offer the device with a 13 Megapixel camera instead and a few other tweaks. Now, we know that LG has been struggling with his competitors especially again Samsung. And while the Optimus G may not blow all other flagship phones out of the water like this Galaxy S3 or the iPhone 5. We really, really like this device a lot. And we think it's the best line of phones LG has ever offer. Again, I'm Lynn and this has been the AT&T's LG Optimus G.
