Probable next Nexus phone, LG E960 Mako camera samples leak - read the full textLG is pretty lax when it comes to keeping the LG E960, a.k.a. the Optimus G-based Nexus phone, under wraps. Images and details of the smartphone just cant stop leaking all over web. The latest info comes from Onliner (again) and shows two camera samples. The camera is an 8MP shooter (the Optimus...

@eFiJy - it about how it feels. The cold benchmark results are meaningless in true real world apps, and, while they can make it easy to compare 2 devices, they help litle when it comes to the actual feeling of the device (and teh OneX is very good, the X+ will probably be better)

The only phone comparable is OneX+ since the Note2 is a feature treasure and has stuff on it that will not be available on

is probably a base in optimus g but reduced specs, since price of this phone likely be cheaper than retail optimus g.

Camera samples aren't really upto par compared to GSIII and iPhone, let alone Sony. Hope they're better in the final firmware. 8GB is a total No-Go for me. 16 min. Or atleast give external storage if keeping 8 internal.

I believe this offering is on the same lines as Nexus 7 , what google probably wants to offer is a quality cutting edge hardware with pure google experience at a compelling price .With cloud storage pics & videos can be transfeered easily but what about hd games But i do want to believe that there should be a 16 GB variant also in store .

You won't get 13mp+(number of pixels is pointless anyway) unless you commit to pay extra $$$ for the flagship.

Storage memory on mobile devices is based on RAM Flash, not ROM, my Dear Watson.

Stop watching these pseudo-tech movies. They are cheating you.

Maybe you should stop watching some of those xxx movies of yours and start watching tech videos and streams to educate yourself.

To all whining on 8GB ram loosers: you don't have to buy it if you afraid it will not accomodate your hd xxx movies collection.

However, there are people like me, who appreciate LG Nexus elegant design and ten times better case quality than samsung plastic pseudo-phones.

Come on. This has to stop. Let's see: 8 MP camera Quad Core Krait, Adreno 320, possibly 2 GB RAM. Google to LG: Let's put 8 GB storage in this ^ :))). It's plain stupid... considering the specs. Yes, maybe they will make a 8 GB $300-350 version for even cheaper options. But there must be a 16 version as well. My bet is 16 and 32 versions will be available. I really hope they don't screw the battery. This needs at least 2000 mAh to be great.

... I do find it very difficult to belive a 300$ (even 300Euro or 300GBP..) because it will still be the fastest phone on the market (equaled only by the OptimusG). It's screen will be on par with the top models of all competitors. It's other features are on par with flaghsips currently available..etc.
... I find hard to belive a price under 600$/500Euro
