LG Optimus GK Features Snapdragon 600 and 5'' 1080p LCD

LG’s new Optimus GK can be considered to be the Optimus G’s smaller sibling, as it also features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core CPU clocked at 1.7 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, and a resolution of 1920 x 1080. What separates the two devices is that, while the Optimus G features a 5.5” phablet display, the GK features a 5” IPS panel that yields an impressive pixel density of 441 ppi.

Also included with the smartphone is a micro-SHDC slot, 13 megapixel primary camera paired with a front 2 megapixel camera, a rather large 3,100 mAH battery, and LG’s skinned version of Android 4.1.

The Optimus GK is currently available as an exclusive for Korea Telecom, but it could be launched contract-free in Korea in the near future and a wider international launch is also quite likely.

    Smartphones are beginning to look very similar lately. Sure, you can shove more cores and ram in there, but the vast majority of people don't need it whatsoever. I'm much less interested at upgrading until I have a need to use such a powerful phone.

    Gotta be honest, I'm not feeling the pull either. I'm still somewhat interested in switching to a (used) Nexus 4, maybe. Other than that I can't justify the costs. My Xperia Play is running a sprightly custom ROM and overclocked to 1.5GHz. It's fast for its age - apps like messaging, Chrome, phone, contacts, gmail etc fire up pretty much immediately (excluding any time to download content over the net).

    How is it a FAIL??? "Also included with the smartphone is a micro-SHDC slot". It clearly has the ability to have it's storage capacity expanded. It's like you expect it to make you breakfast too.

    Just because Apple is a bunch of A-Holes and don't allow memory expansion doesn't mean that everyone else does that. If you wanted to add more you could ADD ANOTHER 32 for a total of 48GB of storage. The memory cards are very cheap.

    My phone has only 6GB of internal storage but that didn't stop me cause I spent a few bucks (cheap) and BAM! I have 38 GB of total storage now. Which is plenty of space for my needs.

    It is nice but why would anyone buy this as opposed to an S4 (which has a removable battery?
