My Sammy Galaxy W is currently jogging along extremely nicely with Cyanogenmod 9 (ICS 4.0.4 - which is not offered by Sammy as an upgrade for the SGW)no need to repeatedly flash different ROMs for stability.
Clockwork Mod is a very nice and capable alternative to stock recovery and makes backing up my entire device & switching between ROMs a complete doddle that anyone with a pc and a usb cable can do.

Nokia are using polycarbonate for covers and chassis on high end phones, so finger pointing at Korean brands is a touch narrow minded.

You guuuuuyyyyss. ROM Updates is now NOT LG's responsibility, because this is a PURE Google Device. Nexus devices are the first that get updates, DIRECTLY from Google. So...chill.

4th place? After Xiaomi MI-2 who's running 4.1? Wtf, so why I should choose the new 4.2 if it's not better than 4.1 on the same chipset?

LG makes great products, the hardware that is,lg is'nt exactly good with updating, infact updating with LG is almost a myth. :)
So if google makes the updates, Nexus 4 will be as great as it should be.
Just hope the Nexus 10 don't use Tegra, never again Nvida!

Owned Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus. Unfortunately I now own an Optimus 3D, because of a mistake. I couldn't find another Galaxy Nexus because they are out of stock. I hope LG doesn't touch anything in the OS and that the battery life won't be half a day like the Optimus 3D. I am very afraid... :)))
