7. LG Optimus G
One of the sleekest smartphones out of LG this year was the Optimus G, which is brimming with new features that LG says lets users better multitask and get things done.
Among these features is QSlide, a viewing option that lets users view two different screens simultaneously, and QuickMemo, a tool for digital writing, drawing or note-taking. Users can also customize the phone's home screen icons to create their own unique interface.
On the inside, the Optimus G runs a quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor, along with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
