LG’s most advanced and feature-rich smartphone, Optimus G, has been recognized by the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and awarded on the basis of its technical specifications, aesthetics, design, and how the device compares to others in the market. The Optimus G has been receiving worldwide accolade since its introduction in the third quarter of 2012.
The phone received a Korea Electronic Show (KES) Innovation Award for its Zerogap Touch technology, which improves the durability and clarity of the display by eliminating air gaps found in other touchscreens. The Optimus G also received the iF Design Product Award in November 2012.
Not only does the Optimus G provide blazing speeds in a sleek exterior, it’s also considerate of the environment, having earned the ULE Platinum and CarbonFree certifications. In addition to all of the awards, the Optimus G has received many positive reviews from various technology media. The product was selected as the best android smartphone by Korean consumers, beating out very strong handheld devices from competing manufacturers. The Optimus G was ranked number one by the leading consumer magazine in the US by receiving the highest score among competing devices. The phone has been receiving a very positive market response in Japan, after only one week of its launch.
“‘Our company’s mobile expertise and innovative technologies are the basis of these accomplishments,’ said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. ‘I am confident LG can lead the next stage of the global LTE smartphone market with competitiveness in hardware technologies and enhanced UX features that were first introduced in the Optimus G.'”
It’ll be interesting to see where LG, who sounds poised to take on Samsung in the smartphone device market, goes from here.
