I just started to receive texts a few months ago so I might be out of the loop

Thank you for your post. The lady suggested buying the LG but my sister has an iPhone 5 so the 3G versus 4G left me lost.

Well there is a 3G then 3GS, then 4, then 4S, and finally the 5

The 3G had just the rear view camera so no video chat/phone capability. Pictures with the camera have low resolution. It cannot operate at the faster 4G or 4G LTE data transfer rates.

If you were looking for iPhone then I really wouldn't look beyond the 5 or 4S. I wish I knew more about the Optimus to help compare.

I think you're mixing your terminology. If you're talking 3G vs 4G, you're talking about the strength of service. If you are talking about the model of the phone, that's completely different. For example, you can get an iphone 5 with 4G service.

You should go on line and do some research. There are SO many options.

I'm going to assume you mean at least iPhone 4.

iPhones have free text to text (iPhones only) generally easier to find a charger if your phone is dead (easy to underestimate that one)
Face time is great.

Many great reasons

I'm a major fan of the iPhone, maybe because I'm jealous that my partner has one

I wouldn't base on that. Most android phones now use micro usb chargers, and those are everywhere. My IT department at work gave me a few of them to keep at my desk and one for my bookbag, because my phone is constantly dying.

iPhone5 has the new "Lightning" interface which isn't as common as the old 30 pin connector used on early iPads, iPods, and iPhones
