LG has recently announced a quite bigger android phone called LG Optimus G2 which is in direct competition with the Samsung Galaxy S4. The new phone is defenitely bigger than the present King of smartphones – Galaxy S4. LG has designed this phone with 5.2 inch display however Optimus G2 has thinner bezels than S4. Both devices has a glossy plastic cover at the back side. Here’s a comparison between LG Optimus G2 and Samsung Galaxy S4 in-terms of specifications. In the first look there seems an increase in processor capacity,display size , battery backup etc. Let’s checkout:
1. Display Size and resolution:
The screen size of LG optimus G2 is .21 inches more than the size of Galaxy S4. The G2 comes in at 5.2-inches where S4 sports a 4.99-inch display. This shows G2 is slightly bigger in dimensions but you’ll get it as a benefit of large screen. When the discussion comes into screen resolution, S4 has got 17ppi more crisper display. The full HD AMOLED screen of S4 has got 441 ppi screen where G2 boasts a full HD IPS panel with a a pixel density of 424. Though this is not a significant difference, both screens look awesome.
2. Processor clock speed:
Here the winner is Optimus G2. A 396 Mhz increase in processor clock speed has achieved by LG through Snapdragon 800 quad-core CPU of G2 clocking at 2.26 GHz. The Galaxy s4 comes with a Snapdragon 600 processor, clocked at 1.9GHz is definitely behind G2 .
3. Battery capacity:
People always love devices with good battery backup. G2 has a 3000 mAh battery, which is surely a big shot that not many smartphone vendors cant give. This ensures more talk-time and usage period than S4’s 2,600 mAh battery can give. A significant 400 milliamp hours battery capacity increase definitely make G2 a powerful device.
There’s no difference when we look at camera’s of both phones in terms of megapixels – both has a Sony 13MP camera at the rear. There are differences, of course in software of camera control but LG and Samsung has many similar features in camera app.
5. Gaming & GPU:
The power of smartphone not only depends on how fast the processor is, but also in how well it handles graphics and games. A GPU computes animations and images comprised of many graphical mathematical functions. Adreno 330, which is one of the best mobile GPU available today is powering up LG Optimus G2 (Snapdragon 800 SoC). This gives a substantial increase in gaming performance of the device. Even though Galaxy S4’s Adreno 320 (Snapdragon 600) is very impressive, Adreno 330 adds much more.
6. Memory – RAM:
Both devices feature 2GB of RAM gives a smooth experience even when so much other apps runs in the background. It makes both phones perfect for hard-core android users.
