BPF Verdict: The LG Optimus G wins! (9-7)

The LG Optimus G wins this match-up too. It narrowly bests the HTC One X+, taking 3 of the 10 rounds available, drawing 6 and losing 1. Where was the fight won? Good question. The Optimus G has the best balance between size and weight, a superior 13.0MP camera and a 4.7-inch 768 x 1280 pixel display with a PPI of 317.66 that just beats the screen on the One X+. The HTC phone does feature more flexibility in terms of storage, however. But overall, we think that the Optimus G is the more powerful phone.
