While the LG Nexus 4 is a solid device, it’s also pretty hard to come by. So what if you absolutely love what LG has done here, but want or need a phone now? You could buy the LG Nexus 4 on contract, or if you are really looking for a great deal you might want to at least think about the LG Optimus G instead.
While the Optimus G will require you to be locked down to a carrier for two years, it is actually almost identical to the LG Nexus 4. The LG Nexus 4 was based on the Optimus G with the biggest changes being the outer appearance and the LG Nexus 4 has stock Jelly Bean while the G has a skinned version of ICS but will eventually see an update to Jelly Bean as well.
Outside of this, the Optimus G actually has a few perks that make it stand above the Nexus 4. With the Optimus G you get 16GB of storage and microSD. Additionally, the Optimus G also has fully working LTE.
The best and most compelling reason to consider the LG Optimus G is the pricing, though. If you don’t mind going with a contract, Amazon Wireless is now offering the phone for just $49 with a two-year contract through AT&T.
This is nothing short of a steal. You get a quad-core 1.5GHz phone with 2GB of RAM for just $49, it is pretty hard to beat that. What do you think, willing to give the Optimus G a chance at this killer price point or not?
