Vendor's Support system and services should be taken into consideration for creating competitive points and wise product buying.
Samsung has a well-known good support system and services in my country. LG? I don't know..
Finally, the choice is absolutely yours!
I was waiting for s3(poor design),but this is the fone i wanted in my dreamz.hope good sound system,and reasonable price for me
S3 has a bad design and still no a Cortex A15 cpu.
LG O4X also without a Cortex A15. Better wait 2013 :)
LG is a cheap android phone compare to samsung and htc but the firmware support is always delay much better to buy samsung because this is always priority of android developer.
nick, 18 May 2012Yeah in dreams... Wake up man... S3 got 9 millons+ preorders in just 2 weeks of its announceme... morePractically LG is much better than Samsung or any other brands because LG gives lot of features in phone with VERY AFFORDABLE PRICE WITH SOLID BUILD QUALITY.And this is most important.I mean PRACTICALLY.
hey there he just said that lgo4xhd beats sg3's design and performance, arent you reading before reacting? i already own this phone and a friend has the sg3 compared to hands on performance lgo4xhd is a way better than SG3! design is so ugly i remembered nokia phones with that design at a glance, samsung is just more popular than lg thats why it has a lot of pre orders but if this people is educated enough about the performance of this lg superphone i dont think that they will buy it! theyre just buying it because of the branding and not minding the phones quality and performance...get it? I HOPE SAMSUNG CAN MAKE THEIR PHONE EXCEPTIONAL AND UNCOMPARABLE TO OTHER PHONES, go for LG if you like to experience over the top performance of a quadcore phone..

S3 got 9 millons+ preorders in just 2 weeks of its announcement... N that does not include US... It broke all records... Think practically, not manually... LG cant do its half also...
I think i'll go for this phone.
I waited for the galaxy 3 but i didn't liked the design. This looks much better! Just about the same specs. i hope the build quality is improved.
launching next month...this is going to be next phone. i am a happy user of optimus 2x. although it's doesn't have official ICS...but i am running a custom ICS rom on my 2x..coz the community support is superb...and i think Optimus 4x will beat the samsung s3...in terms of design and performance.
without bias opinion this would be the best smartphone of this year 2012!
perfect design! we will see it's final specification... im sure lg will do the best for this phone!
samsung galaxy s3 is ugly!
perfect smartphone of the year! very excellent design and features !
This phone is quite equivalent to Samsung S3, a little improvement in the features like Fm radio would make this phone unbeatable.. LG has gained lot of fans one among is me.
i've been using LG P970. cool phone..
Probably will ship with Froyo with endless promises to have an ICS update...eventually.
What does it mean, if specs say "standard battery"?
Does it mean there is a backdoor and it is self replacable battery (like in SGS2) or is it non-replacable one (like in Lumias and iPhones)?
Specs format should include this (for many) crucial information, if the battery is easily changed or not and even if it is hot-swappable.

They already put up benchmark results when gs3 n one x wer compared... Though 4x has a similar cpu n gpu lyk one x... Its benchmark result will be below sgs3... Even i think it wont even surprass htc one x results... Apple's new A5x which they r putting in iphone 5 may surprass everyone's record but i dont think so coz apple r behind when it comes to processing speeds...
Mobilemaster, 10 May 2012Gsmarena didn't mention it. I hope it has.it's gorilla glass 2. just like s3
