iPhone 5:

It uses a brand new technology that removes an extra layer from the screen, which should make the display pop more and make outside viewing better.

LG Optimus 4X HD:

It comes with a 4.7 inch True-HD IPS display of 1,280 × 720 resolution. There is no questioning the quality of the next generation IPS displayh, as you will find pictures and text look sharp. It also offers good performance when used in outdoors.

Build Quality and Design:

iPhone 5:

To accommodate the new display, the iPhone5 is now taller, though the width remains virtually the same. Apple has managed to keep the DNA of the phone intact, while adding some new things here and there.

Some people like the idea of having the headphone port on the bottom of the screen.  As for the new lightning port, which replaces the old dock connector, it may be smaller and faster but it also means you have to either invest in a new set of accessories or get a pricey adapter.

LG Optimus 4X HD:

LG sticks with its plastic theme with the Optimus 4X HD, so it is to be expected that the build quality is not as good as its rival.

Camera and Hardware:

iPhone 5:

Apple has said that new A6 processor the iPhone 5 used should  help make the phone run two times faster than the iPhone 4S. The A6 consists of a dual-core CPU clocked at 1.05GHz, while the former runs it at 800MHz. Apart from the new CPU, the phone offers 1GB RAM, 16/32/64GB storage, 1,400mAh non-removable battery, Bluetooth 4.0, and LTE radio.

LG Optimus 4X HD:

The LG Optimus 4X HD is powered by a 1.5GHz Tegra 3 quad-core processor that gives you access to some of the most advanced gaming apps on the Android platform. Then there’s 1GB RAM, 16GB storage, microSD slot, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, and removable 2,150mAh battery.

The iPhone 5 and Optimus 4X HD come with an 8MP rear camera and both are equipped with an LED flash. While useful in ensuring that the shots won’t be a complete disaster, they can only do so much in badly lit rooms. The iPhone’s camera now allows you to take panorama shots, as well as taking stills while shooting videos. Again, these are features that you can find on Android devices running Ice Cream Sandwich, the Optimus 4X HD included.

Software :

LG Optimus 4X HD:

LG Optimus 4X HD runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This is one generation behind the latest and greatest version, otherwise known as Jelly Bean, but ICS is a solid OS that should offer a fast and stable mobile experience.

iPhone 5:

The iPhone 5 runs iOS 6, which offers several improvements over the last version. You’ll find that Siri has now gotten smarter and knows her sports stats well. There’s Passbook that lets you organize all your tickets in one place and you can now chat with fellow Apple fans on Facetime via cellular connection.

Pros and Cons of Apple iPhone 5:


  • Improved display size and resolution (for iPhone’s standard)
  • Complete ecosystem
  • Good, sturdy design


  • Limited OS
  • Pricey
  • No NFC, expandable storage, and removable battery

Pros and Cons of LG Optimus 4X HD:


  • Huge display (bigger is definitely better)
  • NFC, expandable storage, removable battery
  • Flexible OS
  • Competitively priced


  • Plastic isn’t that fantastic
  • Might not get timely Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update, if ever

Wrap up:

The simplicity of the user interface on the iPhone 5 is both its strong and weak point. If price is not an issue and you think that the new display is big enough, then by all means go ahead and snatch that iPhone 5. Otherwise,  the LG Optimus 4X HD is a worthy Android smartphone to consider.
