good for LG, but i think this year we must not forget about Sony as well. it started the year with a great boom and we must expect more from it in the H2. they are even working on a high end tablet as well. so every rival must be alert about Sony.

I'm happy for LG, they've been making some very solid devices in 2012 and improved their UI so they deserve it. LG's UI looks better than Samsung's and is less bloated, LG's hardware and design is also way better than sammy's...
