Dont compare quality of optimus G by saying "we didnt got OS upgrade to ICS/jellybean .. if you dont like the gingerbread then you could have waited till a phone with ICS/jellynbean release . PLEASE DONT BUY ANY PHONE IF YOU ARE NOT SATISFIED WITH OS COMING WITH PHONE. WAIT FOREVER .... as new OS will release every year

then come here and discuss about performance otherwise go to samsung fourum and comment your stupid ideas.
Optimus G is the fastest among s3,one-x or iphone 5 . samsung/htc/apple fans still not believing s3/one-x/iphone-5 is dethrowned. and regarding the update jelly bean is a minor Os version 4.0 -> 4.1 is not difficult as 2.3 -> 4.0 as there is no major change in linux kernel and chipset is qualcomm( optimus 2x was not updated to 4.0/4.1 because nvidia not released the kernel 3+ and drivers for ics/jellybean) ... so still we lg fans knows that this phone will get a jellybean update. Optimus G / Vu -2 / L9 / 4xHD are the best phones in market .. lg fans ... lg rocks

The good thing about LG is that you just need to wait less than half a year to buy any phone at less than half the price.

These benchmarks are what we can expect from the Asus Padfone 2!

how did LG manage to use the APQ 8064 cpu on this phone, everything i read said it was for tablets and it had no baseband, in order to use it it needed to be paired with a cpu with baseband

Where's its proximity sensor? If it's on the left, I'd be disappointed.

The iPhone5 is not yet out in the market and this phone made it obsolete until the iPhone7

> In reply to PowerVR 6xx - Rogue @ 2012-09-19 12:16 from gDj{ - click to readi chose TI OMAP since its higher clocked+ bootloader is usually unlocked by default unlike snapdragon & novathor.Although I agree Novathor is more battery friendly and power VR 6xxx is a powerfull GPU.

720p is enough for 4.7 inch screen.1080p will put unnecessary load on GPU

> In reply to dheeraj123 @ 2012-09-19 10:38 from 7q95 - click to readyou ahould not dream about the TI omap 5 chip, but rather on a STM NovaThor a9600 chip - it would have the new PowerVR 6xx graphics - not the current 5xx series which would be in the omap5!

and why don't you want a 1080p screen? 1080p is the resolution that all content aspire and converge to! and if you have 1080p screen - 1080p content doesn't have to be converted - you get 1:1 pixel to pixel correlation!

Either the CPU rocks or 2GB RAM makes all the difference. Comparing a Galaxy Note 2 could prove the point.

"... and providing the smoothest UI navigation possible". Isn't it funny? :]
