Winner: Julian Lee, congrats!

If you haven't read our review of the LG Optimus G, you should definitely check it out - this is one powerhouse of a phone. And, courtesy of AT&T, you can win one on this very page. You can also pre-order the Optimus G directly from AT&T, for $199.99 on a new 2-year agreement, at this link.


The AT&T Optimus G is packing a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with 2GB of RAM, and I can tell you from first-hand experience that it is fast. In fact, it's easily the quickest smartphone I've ever used, and the 4.7" True HD IPS display is one of the very best I've seen on any handset. LG's unique design is simple and understated, and the glass-like rear cover with its subtle reflective patterning really is striking.

The AT&T Optimus G's 8MP camera snaps quick photos, and sits perfectly flush with the back of the phone - no humps or bumps on this thing. Android 4.0 (with an upgrade to 4.1 on the way) runs buttery smooth, and LG's Optimus UI 3.0 delivers a highly customizable user experience. And, of course, AT&T's 4G LTE and HSPA+ networks are in tow, to make sure every aspect of the Optimus G is as speedy as possible.

    The battery in my old Captivate is starting to go. I want to upgrade but can't decide if I should pull the trigger now or wait for the next Superphone (TM) to come out.

  • John R. Peters Jr.

    want to upgrade because I have a droidx right now and the camera
    doesn't work unless I restart the phone 4 times, the battery only lasts
    like 5 hours and my headphone jack only works every once and a while and
    sometimes I have to restart it to get it to play any music at all even
    through just the speaker.

    I'm not going to tell you I have some crappy phone with a broken screen and no data plan. I have an SGS2 that I love but honestly who wouldn't want a phone this sweet? I lost some love for LG with the G2x but would love to get it back with a Optimus G.

  • Curtis Massey

    I really need a sweet phone. I live every day with a huge 'green monster'.
