Sprint's 13-MP, LG Optimus G

Boasting a 13-megapixel camera, a swift SnapDragon S4 Pro quad-core CPU, and a vivid display, the LG Optimus G from Sprint is the best LG phone yet.

Snug in the pocket

Measuring 5.2 inches tall, 2.7 inches wide, and 0.33 inch thick, Sprint's Optimus G will be a tight fit in small jeans pockets.

Poor audio speaker

Though there's a lot to like about the device, one of its drawbacks is its poor audio speaker.

Sprint ID loaded

Signified by the third icon in the bottom dash, Sprint included Sprint ID, which lets users customize their phones with preselected apps and widgets.

Missing component

Though the AT&T model includes a microSD card slot on the side of its Optimus G, Sprint's doesn't have a microSD slot.
