Motorola has produced some great smartphones to become the unprecedented king of the entry level segment.
The company has been eyeing the high-level segment as well. However, the smartphones released by Motorola are good, both in features and performance, but lack the oomph factor to lure the masses. Moreover, the company has brought down the price of its handsets; therefore, some sacrifices are made to the smartphone which inadvertently affects its performance. However, the newly released Moto G promises more than what meets the eye.
In comparison, today, the Korean number two smartphone manufacturer has placed itself nicely in the smartphone arena with its Optimus series. LG has pushed the limits of technology with its Optimus line up, holding nothing back. The LG Optimus L9 handset may not come equipped with top-notch features, but the handset has enough fire power to give other smartphones a run for their money. The 4.5-inch IPS display along with a dual core processor pushes the L9 handsets into the premium smartphone segment.
