LG Optimus G officially lands in the Philippines
The LG Optimus G has finally landed in the Philippines! Competitively priced at Php26,900, this new flagship smartphone for LG Mobile Philippines has all the high-end specifications you’d want in your device including LTE connectivity, potentially long battery life, and a blazing fast quad-core processor. LG also says that the camera is one of the best you can find in a smartphone though we’ll have to test that for ourselves once we get our grubby hands on a review unit, lol.
Here’s a quick rundown of the full specifications.

QSlide, QMemo, and QTranslate
So what makes it different from all the other Android handsets in the market today? To make it more interesting for users LG built-in three features: QSlide, QMemo, and Qtranslate. QSlide basically lets you see two screens on your display and you can control the opacity (transparency) and size of the secondary window. QMemo, on the other hand, is a note taking handwriting app. Combined with QSlide you can keep whatever you write “floating” on your screen. Lastly Qtranslate lets you take photos of words and it will translate for you in the language of your choice.
All three features are funky, gimmicky, but definitely fun to use. We’ll put them to the test when we review the handset.
