IMO, this phone will set the standards for the next 2-3 years to come.
The resolution is ok for the vast majority of the apps.
The Krait CPU and 320 Adreno, will make it the highest high end Nexus phone, of course in 6 months, HTC, Samsung and maybe even Sony, will have superior offers.
But not in a way that this Nexus will have anything to worry about.
The optimus G will have a better camera and SD card slot to compete with the new Nexus.
What worries me the most about LG phones is the battery, this one has huuuge capacity, but i am expecting just average performance, so i guess thats fine.
I wouldnt worry about the LCD screen, LCDs still have the overall performance crown, as the iphone 5 has confirmed.
And speaking about the ultimate competitor, google wanted a flagship that could challenge it and the Optimus G can, maybe even better than the S3...

This is not a nexus,nexus phones got ''google'' branding not ''with google'' which some non-nexus phones got.

This in itself is a good thing for LG but I seem underwhelmed by the announcement. If anything, the desirability for the previous model screams at me. I'd rather have the Samsung than this. But to be honest, as it hasn't been finalised yet, LG may possibly create a very good phone that has their impressive hardware without their crappy GUI. Win-Win.

if specs of lg optimus g can be combined with updated android versions, it can kick samsung n apple both out of smartphone competition. nothing can beat optimus g's specs, and if these specs can be combined with latest firmware (which is the only drawback of lg according to some people, or samsung paid fodders) then it is gonna b only thing to look for this year.
