The LG Optimus G will finally come out next month, making it six months since the phone premiered in South Korea. Telstra have finally priced the Optimus G while at the same time opening pre-orders.
A hack has been released that lets users turn an LG Optimus G into a perfect simulation of a Nexus 4, removing LG’s custom interface from the Optimus G and sticking it on the standard, untouched default Android code we see on Nexus devices.
Say this for the Optimus G: it doesn’t skimp. LG went for broke to shake off its mid-range reputation, cramming its latest flagship Android phone full of goodies. But specs don’t always equal performance.
