As LG showed off the Optimus G to the US press this morning, our minds are already wondering if this really is a Galaxy S III competitor, or just another hopeful? Early hands-on have been pretty positive, though there has been some mention about how “busy” LG’s UI is. Still, it seems that even with a little extra junk on the home screen, the quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor and 2GB of RAM push the phone along with nary a stutter. Other features worth noting include the 4.7″ IPS HD display, 13 megapixel camera and QSlide multitasking which allows two full-sized apps to display on the same screen.
We know you really just want to see the Optimus G in action, so check out some hands-on video courtesy of our own PhoneDog crew and the boys from Engadget.
