MWC is rapidly closing in on us and, with Samsung and HTC nearly confirmed as taking the event quite lightly, we need another “hero” to step in and capture the Barcelona spotlight. Could that someone else be LG?
It turns out the top 5 rated Sprint devices are mostly Android, with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 reigning supreme, followed by the LG Optimus G and the ubiquitous Samsung Galaxy S3.
In some respects, Samsung may be bigger than Android, and is often a “go to” handset for many consumers. Samsung, however, is increasingly becoming less an ally of Android and more a potential foe.
Sprint is currently offering subscribers an LG Optimus G buy-one-get-one (BOGO) promotion: the first Optimus G costs $199.99 on contract, while the second one is available free of charge, although a new contract is included.
We have the alleged full specs and a leaked image of the LG Optimus G Pro. Based on them. does LG stand a fighting chance against the Galaxy S4 and the other heavyweights?
The LG Optimus G was first officially unveiled back in late August, though many countries have still yet to see the flagship handset. With that in mind, the Optimus G is now set to launch in Australia on March 13th.
Despite posting their best mobile sales of the year, LG Electronics were still $429 million in the hole in Q4 due to a fine from the European Union.
Rogers will begin carrying the LG Optimus G on the 2600MHz frequency starting in February. Additionally they’ve launched their “Winter White Event.” $100 off of select devices, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
Even though later than anticipated, LG seems more and more capable to play in the big leagues when it comes to high-end smartphones.
As part of Sprint’s buy one, get one free promotion — you can grab two LG Optimus G handsets for the price of one. The deal for the quad-core smartphone ends on February 28.
