The Good 13-megapixel camera. Zippy quad-core CPU. Attractively bright touchscreen. Clever multitasking features.
The Bad No microSD card slot. Battery could be better. Speaker audio a bit tinny.
The Bottom Line This Telstra exclusive is the best LG phone on the market due to its zippy processor, lovely display and 13-megapixel camera.
LG Optimus G
We're not big fans of superlatives, but for LG's flagship phone of the season, we'll make an exception. The LG Optimus G is the best phone from the company, especially considering its string of ho-hum handsets that were good but not great.
Australians have had to wait a while for this, with even LG admitting that the Optimus G's arrival was "somewhat overdue", but the Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core CPU still stands up, as does the impressive display and powerful 13-megapixel camera. With the formal local launch of the device on 13 March, it's also been revealed that the Optimus G will be a Telstra exclusive "for the foreseeable future".
