When Samsung launched its popular Galaxy S III Android smartphone in Australia back in May, the company said it was “confident” the lack of a 4G model wouldn’t hinder sales of the 3G model.

Lurking in the shadows waiting for its turn to burn up the scene, the LG Optimus G is gearing up to finally make its attack in grabbing the crown.

Being the newer kid on the block, the Optimus G’s combination of featuring a quad core processor and 4G LTE connectivity makes for one alluring tally at the moment, but will it be enough to conquer the tight grasp that Sammy’s flagship has on the market.

The about screen on your US Samsung Galaxy S III may look a lot like the one above in the near future (albeit in English).

In comparison, we’re attracted to the LG Optimus G’s more premium materials and solid construction – attributed to its Crystal Reflection rear pattern and layered glass surfaces.

Essentially, we’ve got one solid dark slab with LG’s offering, while Sammy’s pride and joy comes off as a polished stone.

The capacitive buttons below the screensStill employing capacitive Android buttons beneath their displays, we don’t come across any instances of accidental presses – since they’re space adequately from one another.

Two capacitive buttons (Menu and Back) that disappear after a few seconds flank this physical key.

We did notice some lag after hitting the home button, but as with the Galaxy S III disabling the S Voice shortcut for this key sped things up.

There are covers for the microUSB port and headphone jack with button covers for the power and volume buttons.

Taking a peek around the trim of both smartphones, they feature 3.5mm headset jacks, microphones, noise cancellation mics, and microUSB ports for data/charging/video out connectivity.
