I was gifted an LG Optimus G Smartphone and given the option to give one away. I was not paid for this post and as usual all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Most of the time when I get invited to attend events I have an idea of how it will play out but sometimes I get surprised, this was one of them. LG had invited me to be a guest at an intimate product launch for their brand new phone the Optimus G in The Rocks.
It seemed like a perfect excuse to get all dressed up. I had gorgeous new frock to wear that deserved the city lights and there is something simply indulgent about heading out on a weekday. I even glossed up my digits with black lace nail decals from Glam by Manicare, don’t scrimp on the details I say!
I think it’s important, especially when meeting new people to look polished, confident and to stand out from the crowd… a pale gold foil dress will definitely do that. To jazz up my look even further I added one of my favourite statement necklaces, I felt amazing. I really need to take proper photos of it in daylight, it’s definitely going in my suitcase for New York.

The team from LG were lovely and really knew my blog, I can tell when people have done their research. They also knew about my love of selfies and that having a tool to help me share moments from my daily adventures was important to me and were quite happy to answer any questions and even followed up with a tech team after the event to make sure I was really getting the most out of it.
After a quick meet and greet we were handed envelopes, this is where it got interesting… and a little like something out of a bond movie.
We were introduced to our brand new phone and encouraged to rip it out of the box and start using it straight away. In a matter of minutes our crash course on the important features and functionalities was covered and we were told to open up the envelope to discover our mission. Here’s a sneak peek into what’s inside the box…
We were lead into a large room that was dimly lit (this pic was taken earlier in the day) and very atmospheric. Large scale nudes by Charles Billich adorned the main walls and stained glass glimmered. Around the room there were problems to be solved, each leaving a clue to bring us closer to cracking the secret code.
In order to solve each step we had to use certain features and apps… waaaaaaay more exciting than sitting at a table having someone tell you about a phone, we actually got to experience it and learn first hand. You can see me in action in the video below.
What do I think of the phone? Well, I really like it. I’m comfortable with the phone I have now but the Optimus G has made me rethink how I use a phone in a business sense. For weeks I carried around both phones everywhere I went to see which one I would stop using first. The only reason I’m still using is mine is because I don’t have a case for the Optimus G yet. It has such a sleek, delicate design that I’m afraid I’ll damage it.
I’ve had it since March and I would definitely recommend it. I really wanted to take my time getting to know it before I wrote this post, if I didn’t like it I wasn’t going to give one away with my seal of approval, simple as that. You should know that the battery life is good, really good and that’s important to me. I’ll be taking the Optimus G with me to New York as I also love the big screen, the “cheese” function, memos and time capture. Consider my mind blown.
