The Cosmicist, 25 Jul 2013Come on, Nexus 5!Nexus have up to date software besides that whats good? no removable battery no expandable memory! buy moto X! but i will always prefer one with these options. again its a personal preference. i don't know how many times expanded memory has served me well because most common phones have 16 gb. and battery after 6 months acts up so i buy on ebay and good as gold again.
i am stunned why most Moto, SONY, HTC stopped microSD? removable battery? i can't figure it out. they used to do it what changed speed what? moto X perfect size but lacks the options i want. if you tell me water proof S4 Active has removable battery if i am not mistaking. Anyone?

There is a reason most people buy Samsung and lg over HTC, Specs and updates. Even though LG is terrible with updates, they make good phones at good price. HTC is overpriced, your so blinded by beauty to see that.
sela9, 24 Jul 20132.3ghz quadcore cpu +2gb ram.
is there some ui or app out there who jus needed more then 1/... moreIt's true most users won't put to use/work such power, but all of them will surely have a very pleasant and excellent experience doing whatever they want in and WITH the device. There are so many things that these Android devices can do that this power is more than welcomed. And for the users who do know how to/like/want to push these devices to their limits will be the best; no more limitations, etc.
If you bought a just right device you'd find yourself limited in some tasks or ways. But, also, it's true that to get an excellent and almost unstoppable multitasking experience it's not a must to get one is these latest devices, any one that gets a score above or at least 13000 in Antutu can give an excellent performance and experience in any use n.n With less than that the experience is still fine.
I'd say benchmarks, for me, can be used that way, if I had to recommend a device or measure it's overall capabilities:
From 4K to 5K = Basically fine experience
From 5K to 9K = Good, no complaints for the mayoriy of basic users
From 9K to 13K = Better and satisfactory experience for most moderately heavy users
From 13K to 23K= Best for heavy users with no intentions of spending much money in the latest and greatest
From 23K to 30+K = The best one could buy, but cost a likely unnecesary price if you look to the above ranges. These are the best, no matter if one gets 24K and the other 27K, wont' be a noticeable difference in the actual usage.
From 30K and above, these devices are anyone's wish, one can get them if wanted n.n No problem.
So, glad we have lots to choose from.
My money for G2, 24 Jul 2013its not always about numbers.......... F.Y.I. Snapdragon 800 is less consuming power/ ene... moreTook the words right out of my mouth. To add to this, hence the extra battery... I dunno why markets outside of Korea don't include a secondary battery when it makes so much sense. If it meant to pay an extra premium for it on contract, I think I gladly would than lets say a generic case??
Skendy, 24 Jul 2013Small battery for big display and this chipset...
FAIL!its not always about numbers..........
Snapdragon 800 is less consuming power/ energy
thus 2,610mAh for a 5.2"FHD Screen can deliver a great battery life.
[deleted post]Only people with no taste will buy this. And apparently there are a lot of tastless people like you that's why Samsung, LG and those cheap Chinese phones are selling like hotcakes. I don't like Android but I have appreciation for beauty that's why I bought and love my HTC One. This is the only beautiful Android phone, both in terms of design and UI, out of gazillion others.
i really want to know how exactly thin is this phone? hehehehe
im guessing around 6.5mm,6.9mm,7mm,7.1mm,7.5mm, or 7.9mm?
hahahahahaha im just curious.......
other sources mentioned G2 has 2,700 mAh battery capacity.
we will only know that on August 7, 2013.
this is so exciting............
[deleted post]I guess you call yourself supergeek for namesake, numbers is not everything, there are many other factors that decide on how the phone fares on battery life
Everything about this device is ugly. From the design, to the UI, even the logo. I can't believe people are choosing LG over HTC.
Great piece of hardware. I just hope they change their stance on updates. If they're going to abandon their present flagship, the Optimus G, then it's going to be a further downhill slide for them. No matter how good the hardware might be; if the company's not going to support it well, as LG's record is, it's going to keep on losing customers. And if they do that with their current flagship, nobody's going to trust them with the G2. But they ARE trying to rebuild their image, and I hope they do it right, because I've had the Optimus G, which proved to be a really nice phone.
2.3ghz quadcore cpu +2gb ram.
is there some ui or app out there who jus needed more then 1/4 of these specs?
isnt it jus for bet other brands in benchmark competition? and should the high prize during the specs be an effort for the customer?
You might think twice after you get a chance to see an feel the device.
dazzla, 24 Jul 2013Why not have moto x with g2 spec. Nothing is perfect. Because Moto X with just it's 2 CPU's in the X8 8-core mobile computing system may be more compotent and battery efficient than any other handset out there. Lets wait for the benchmarks and we will know. This time though I wont be looking at CPU benchmarks, as those will only guage the CPU performance and not the overall feel. I will trust EPIC Citadel (which guages the overal frame rate) to judge the winner as the Moto X is not only about CPU's but the entire mobile computing system.
