lg optimus g vs samsung galaxy note 2
Are you planning to get a new Smartphone within few hours or next month? Then, you will be curious to know that there are two beasts fighting with each other. Yes, I am talking about LG Optimus G Vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2. I have already discussed about LG Optimus G (eagerly awaiting in market). But without giving any room or breath to LG, Samsung has produced another top Smartphone named as Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which has recently launched in market. Let’s find out how they stand head to head with each other.

Comparison between two best Smartphone :


There are lots of points like design, display, multimedia, technology, battery, Internet features, connectivity, multimedia, camera and many more but I will discuss those points which contain major differences between both of them.

Android (4.1.1) - Jelly Bean, 
Touch Wiz 4.0 UI
Dimension and Weighs
131.9 x 68.9 x 8.5mm, 145g
151.1 x 80.5 x 9.4mm, 183g

So in this section both are giving neck to neck fight to each other. But it's time for result :
Software part- Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is WINNER, as due to latest iteration, Jelly bean which has more advanced feature than Ice Cream Sandwich.

And Dimension wise- LG Optimus G is at EDGE as it weighs less.

So in this module, we can see that Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is slightly better than LG Optimus G due to its more pitch-ness in black color also color are deep and vivid having faintest touch.

  1. Awesome post. Can you please send me a notification when you post any new post at your blog.

  2. Ha ha ..

    1) 1.5GHz quad-core Krait A15 > 1.6GHz quad-core Cortex A9
    2) 318 ppi > 267 ppi
    3) samsung = pure black ( bluish screen otherwise) , LG = natural colour so its still personal preference.

    1. 318 ppi > 267 ppi ---if u are going for stats, then your statement is right, but in live when u compare them , Galaxy 2 looks better...
      1.5GHz quad-core Krait A15 > 1.6GHz quad-core Cortex A9----u can say Krait technology is better than Cortex A9 but, GHZ always matter first.

      And everyone has different opinion, ur's opinion and my ones may differ.

      Anyway thanks for ur response...

  3. I agree with Kamal,

    EVERY credible tech site has rated the Optimus G screen not only better than the Note 2's but equal to or just under the One X. The Note 2 has a dim blue screen. Not one tech site has praised it's screen for anything other than it's size.

    .1GHz on last years processors doesn't matter first. 1.5GHz Qualcomm quad-core Krait processor and Adreno 320 smokes the 1.6GHz quad-core Cortex A9. The G runs faster than the Note 2 already and it's not even on Jellybean's project butter yet.

    You forgot to mention build quality. Pick up a G and you will have a hard time holding Sammy's Fisher Price plastic toy phones anymore.

    Lastly, these are in two different categories. The G is in the phone category and the Note 2 is in the FAGlet category.

    Thanks anyway for your biased review...

    1. Thanks for your narrative response on this post.

  4. Ive owned the Samsung galaxy slll which had the same basic screen that the note 2 has and now have the lg optimus. I've got to say the lg screen is nicer. The quadcore on lg is newer than the note's. But they both stand on their own as state of the art.ones a phone the others a tablet hybrid.

    1. Yeah! you said it rightly, both have different class and are giving neck-neck fighting with each other.
