On a user point of view it’s really become difficult to find which ones display features are the best, is it Samsung Galaxy S III or it is LG Optimus G. On one side of the sphere we may feel that small frame with a lightweight feature will give a very natural feel to the user of Samsung Galaxy S III. But when we try to go out for a comparison with LG Optimus G, on a definite note we get attracted to it because of its premium quality material used with a very well solid construction. The Pattern of Crystal Reflection rear along with surface of the layered glass gives LG Optimus G a very eye catching look. But still Samsung Galaxy S III will score a better point in display part because of its WOW factor of having 4.8” HD 720 x 1280 Super AMOLED display and excellent color combination. The display feature of LG Optimus G is also amazing too, with its 4.7” WXGA 768 x 1280 HD IPS Plus display. The color tones used are really natural and make you feel very close to heart.


If we are open to give an honest remark about these two titan competitors in Hardware section, then it’s really difficult to find who the chosen best is. The response to any action is really excellent for both. But still if we want to compare between them in Hardware, then LG Optimus G, is bit better because of using Qualcomm Krait processor, which makes it faster by about 20% to 150% than the one present in Galaxy S III. Looking at the Storage part or we can say the memory section, out here both the appliances go for a tie as both of them has same category storage system.
