What Makes LG Different When It Comes to Android?

This is a sponsored post on behalf of LG, but all opinions expressed are 100% my own (and of the LockerGnome community).

Learning from you, The LG G2 launch event — run by Huffington Post UK and Engadget — is taking place on August 7th, 2013 at 11 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. For more information, check out the official launch site or visit LG Mobile’s Facebook page.

This prompted us to ask our community: what makes LG different when it comes to Android? While not everyone stayed within the parameters of the actual question, the response toward LG as a quality manufacturer of Android devices was pretty solid. Here are some examples of what people have been saying about LG.

What Makes LG Different When It Comes to Android?

Christophe Bisase: I have the Nexus 4 and I think it’s one of the best phones on the market right now. The performance and design are awesome.

Nick Bajaj writes: After using the Nexus 4, I think the best thing LG does is it waits and comes out with a really good product, unlike Samsung, which has a new phone every two weeks.

Jonathon James Barnes writes: LG’s devices have very little to no Android stutter because the company doesn’t ruin Android by adding things that nobody needs into it.

Ryan Hood writes: LG’s Android software seems very snappy on its last few devices — very responsive. You get more bang for your buck because typically a fully loaded LG device is priced less than a similar Samsung or HTC.

Ronaldo Perez writes: Very responsive and of high quality.

Jason Keith Guerrero writes: Snappy, great build, sturdy.

Luis writes: Google is probably the main reason why LG is different. With the success of the Nexus 4, it kind of makes sense for LG to gain attention. You do get a bit more attention when you work with the world’s most popular search engine.

Ashley Wainewright writes: Coming from an LG E960, I can safely say that the phone without a case is the best feeling phone I’ve ever held; performance is fantastic and stock Android is brilliant — even my LG KP501 is still working to this day.

Nathan Michael Alvarez writes: …from what I’ve seen, LG phones have an overall better build quality than, say, Samsung. Another difference is in its screen technologies. LG has always prided itself on its screens (resolution, color gamit, saturation, etc.).

Blake Bedford-Palmer writes: LG P500 was a good, budget phone.

      I was just wondering about that. I liked the look of LG phones, so I kept buying them. But for some reason, versus every other phone i have, they have sucked consistently. As soon as I could afford to spend extra money when my contract was up, I switched. Samsung hasn’t turned out to be that much better, at least not the Exhibit. But at least I’m getting calls and texts now.

    I have had the LG Optimus V for years and it still works well. My teenage son has had one for a few years too and it has survived being thrown in has backpack and bouncing around in his pocket. Screen is bright and call clarity is excellent. The only thing missing is a flash for the camera, but it is a phone after all. When the time comes, I will be looking for another LG.

    I am using LG optimus l5 for the past six months…In the beginning it was good. But now it’s hanging badly … I am having limited apps even though it’s hanging… it’s irritating me a lot…

    My Nexus 4 is definitely the best phone I have ever had. Just wish the back of the phone wasn’t glass!
