I remember dealing with Goldstar prior to LG (luckygoldstar) in the 1990's and it was a company dedicated to building quality then. Until 2 days ago I was a massive apple fan iMacs, iPads, IPods and apple tv are already in our home, it all works together nicely. My wife has the iPhone 4 and loves it, so I was looking forward to placing my order for a Apple iPhone 5 today. Anyway after all the hype I was disappointed to see that there was no killer feature this time (if there was it was not suitable for me) maybe I missed something. The one thing I do like is the build quality and how the iPhone is machined during its manufacture.
This has left me to start looking at the competition. By coincidence I spoke to a Samsung employee about the iPhone (he is also a student at Manchester Business School and a really nice chap) anyway his advice was wait and see. What this has made me do is hold off and look at the competition. That's how I ended up here.
Both Samsung and LG are where Apple were years ago with there computers. People that used Apple knew they had a better product than those using Pc's but it took time to convert to Apple products. At one point they were geeky and not trusted even though they were virus free and almost faultless in construction.
Samsung and LG are doing the same as Apple. They are making high specification products that people now want to buy over the competition.
Apple products are good but Apple won't stay top for eternity.
I want a Lg Optimus G and I am a big Apple fan!
Maybe Samsung will trump it with a better phone within a year but I'm due for a change now and right now this is the Daddy of phones.
I notice it beat the Samsung Note 2 which i really want and S3 in benchmark score. I was like Whaaat? I waited for a year to get the s3 decided to wait for the i phone5 didnt like it. I just want a bigger screen and a quadcore. The i phone5 is legit dou. I did my researched and i notice the Xperia T is a beast to and now i see this damn. It all comes down to s note 2, LG G. And Xperia T or SL in USA.
are you kidding?
I might buy Nokia or Htc or Samsung or apple but not LG. I never will buy LG. Am I felo-de-se to really do this??
[deleted post]Ya, You are absolutely right. . . They are the technology innovators. . . they made the 1st touch screen phone, 1st dual core phone, 1st 3d phone etc,. etc,. . . they need not to copy from others. . . now they have also improved in providing the updates. . . all the best LG. . .

The GNote2 will probably be better than Optimus G when it comes to sales and popularity and also wow factor. Just my opinion and cheers.

Touchscreen phones were only starting to get noticed, and of course they weren't that good. But don't forget that LG was the company who made the first touchscreen phone. And then you got an iphone who is much better because it has a different software. Apple appeared on the phone market only after the touchscreen was launched.
People will start paying attention once it's released and reviewed. Just like 1st Galaxy S, silent hit then becoming popular.
Hopefully it will be available in Europe before October.
i'm more interested in the oppo find5 x990... the specs are amazing... fullHD 1080p, 5", 441ppi, jellybean and 6.65mm... i just want a huge battery and i'll be set...
i cud care less that it is some cheap Chinese phone...
with those specs and price it could be a Guyanese phone and i wont mind
No doubt this is the most powerful smartphone in the world at present,should be more,than 90% popularity after release date ..If most of guys really knows,about the knowledge about what is processor ,what is hybrid display technology and what is qaud core s_4 pro processor.and most of other powerfull thing that packs in this Smartphone.They,will prefer this smart built premium smartphone with premium built.
I used to own an LG phone a few years ago. The screen wasn't very responsive... The UI was quite restrictive, it was a phone. It worked the way it should and that was all. I moved to the iphone afterwards. It was very easy to use (user experience improved after jailbreak)... with a large range of apps and fashion accessories (like some barbie doll) that I just don't bother with. But the fact is, I'm losing interest. I'm not fond of itunes (sync, sync, sync), Apple's series of global lawsuits (Suing a Poland Supermarket over a so-called similar logo isn't a first time, they sued an Australia supermarket called Woolworths back in 2009) and premium pricing (for what its hardware or software is worth...). Okay... getting back to the subject of interest.
Well, judging from the specs... this LG phone is certainly powerful. Ram, Quad Krait, GPU, camera, resolution. The design is sleek, I'd certainly get a black one myself. The only thing that would stop me from throwing my money at it is... updates. LG has a track record of either abandoning their phones or being very slow with updates. They have good innovation for their hardware, just that it's lacking in their software department... I'm tied between Samsung Galaxy Note II and this beauty. Size isn't a concern for me, I prefer a bigger screen with good clarity so I don't have to squint my four-eyes. Hopefully this one will upgrade to Jelly Bean as it plans to, or else it'd be CM10. No, a longer and thinner phone just doesn't meet my needs. Sure I'm not hoping to carry a brick but being 33 grams heavier isn't going to tip my scales. I'm sure everyone knows what phone I'm relating to. So, I shall wait for both the release of the Note II and Optimus G.
That was a very long post. I'd be surprised if anyone read this.
Note: I have never used an Android phone before but I'm keen on giving it a shot after reading reviews and watching user experiences on Youtube.
After the launching of iphone5
We can say that no one can beat Optimus G...
Optimus G. is the newChampion !!!
Wow!Amazing, design is an LG Optimus Chocolate on the making, a killer phone indeed!
sunny, 12 Sep 2012can anyone one confirm that back pops open for battery replacement, micro SD, and sim? LGO4X ... moreI've read somewhere that it's supposed to have a removable battery, at least for the Korean version. No idea about the Japanese version, or any other TBA versions. The sim card & micro sd should be removable as well, but I don't know where they're located.
In terms of specs cpu, ram, camera & battery this is THE BEST PHONE of the year (or in mobile history to date - given that the quad krait CPU and Adreno GPU out performs or is equal to that of SGSIII). If it is equal then this still has more ram With 2GB and higher pixel density 318ppi. Also the physical design is arguable better looking that S3. Just needs a stock Jelly Bean themed UI and we've got the killer of the year!
