Thus, as the Google Nexus 4, made by LG, the Optimus G has a very elegant glass back, and finished with the same « holographic » effect rather nice, even if the pattern used is more classic than the Nexus.
The use of glass gives the smartphone a significant range of high side, but comes with two problems: the potential fragility, since back glass is obviously more susceptible to breakage, and for some users, the loss of removable, and therefore the possibility of replacing the battery back, it was possible on the HD 4X.
LG Optimus G also provides its a Micro SD slot, only a metal tray for the Micro SIM card to grace the perimeter. The façade is devoid of any physical buttons, but three virtual keys and backlit are arranged at the bottom of the smartphone.
It is a little less enthusiastic about the periphery plastic « glossy » but nothing alarming either. Overall, the Optimus G, with the Nexus 4, the most successful by LG a design standpoint smartphone: nothing surprises, of course, but the simplicity comes with a workmanship appreciable. We regret at most projection of the camera lens.
The dimensions of the Optimus G are comparable to most Android smartphones including the flagship Galaxy S III: a little earlier, as wide and a little less thick. The weight of the smartphone is obviously burdened by the use of glass, but not as you might think: 148 g, it is lighter than the Lumia 920.
