LG's Optimus G is a powerhouse of a phone. It's got a 1.5 Quad-core S4 Pro SoC with 2GB RAM on board. Today we learned of a new phone with almost identical specs: the HTC Droid DNA. There's one significant difference between the two phones: the number of pixels on the screen. The screen on the Optimus G is a little better than 720P HD at 1280x768, which is 983,040 total pixels. HTC's Droid DNA has a 1080P HD screen (1920x1080) which equates to 2,073,600 pixels -- yes, well over two million pixels! Higher resolutions require significantly more calculations just to keep up. Compared to ...

Single-core versus dual-core used to be the big debate. As expected, we saw a fairly substantial jump in day-to-day activities when we went from one to two cores. People thought we'd see the same kinds of improvements going from dual-core to quad-core -- though we really haven't. Some have argued that we haven't seen a similar performance bump because Android isn't optimized for quad-core processors. I'm sure there's some truth to that, however, it looks like SoC architecture -- rather than the number of cores -- is more important to overall performance than just cramming a couple ...

The Optimus G is the most significant flagship product we've seen from LG in a little while, and another in the company's long line of "firsts." This time, that accomplishment is processor-specific, with this smartphone the first to offer the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro. That means quad-core and LTE on the same device, which has until now been a rarity for much of the developed world. Along with the other hardware specs, like an 8MP camera, "True HD IPS Plus" display, and 2GB of RAM, the Optimus G also features unique glass construction with some interesting visual flairs. That's something ...
