The Samsung Galaxy S III is still the best Android-powered handset you can get your hand on in the market today and the current Samsung flagship device has continued its domination of the smartphone market since it made its debut in the shelves back in the latter parts of May last year. It’s not that no smartphone is good enough to challenge the Samsung Galaxy S III and give it more than just token competition but the handset is sure a great mix of a gorgeous exterior and fire-breathing components under the hood, not to mention the impressive capabilities it brings to the table.

However, there are those who claim that if there is ever a smartphone that could come close to challenging the Samsung Galaxy S III, it would have to be the LG Optimus G from which the LG Nexus 4, the current Google flagship device is based, from. The LG Optimus G is also a flagship device similar to the Samsung Galaxy S III and we all know that flagship handsets usually get the best of everything. In fact, when you take a look at the resume of the LG superphone, you’ll see that it can match the Samsung flagship device spec by spec and the only edge the Samsung Galaxy S III has over the LG Optimus G is the fact that it has a dedicated microSD card slot and a user-replaceable battery in its chassis.

However, this is not to say the LG Optimus G is already a pushover for the Samsung flagship handset. In fact, the handset is now almost at par with the Samsung Galaxy S III because LG has started the rollout of the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update to the LG Optimus G which pretty much puts the two handsets on a level playing field. A little caveat though, the rollout is initially happening in LG’s hometown of Korea so if you happen to have an LG Optimus G handset released say for example by Sprint in US shores, you still have to wait a little more before Jelly Bean finally lands on your device.

As for the Sprint version of the LG Optimus G, the handset reached official status when it was announced back in October of last year but is now available off the shelves and is in fact one of the best handsets in the portfolio of the Now Network. The LG Optimus G has its circuitry built around a QualComm APQ8064 SnapDragon S4 chipset which comes with a quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor and a staggering 2GB of RAM.

The storage space on board the device comes up to a very generous 32GB but this is all you got because the LG Optimus G doesn’t support memory expansion as mentioned earlier. Display-wise, the handset comes with a 4.7-inch True HD-IPS+ LCD panel with a resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels while its dual-shooter configuration is composed of a main 13MP shooter at its back panel and a front 1.3MP video call and self-portrait snapper.
