Is anyone else not as impressed with the camera samples in this review? Do a side to side comparison with the Iphone or GS3 and you will see its not all that impressive. What a let down.

Look up the design history of Android.
Their first prototype didn't have touch screen.That's why it still lags issue that part of the framework and why touch isn't given priority.
Only increasing hardware is slowly overcoming this.
The truth Android fans can't handle...

Android lags with any hardware. It's the most buggy OS out there. Very unstable and freezes at times.

Whoever is says there is lag.... >.< every phone! (Yes even iphone) when u switch from landscape to portrait in apps there is the same lag. that is all that has happened. LG have implemented the UI in a way that the homescreen switches between the two and therefore u get the typical 'lag'. EVERYTHING ELSE on this phone is SMOOTH AS BUTTER! imagine what this baby will be like with project butter a.k.a jelly bean! theyve promised it. just wait and see. WB

The Optimus G camera it does has 5 linces like iphone 4s/5, the best display around IPS true HD plus 768x1280 with 320ppi. Excllent job LG i hope this will get jelly bean or lime pie soon and fix the lag issue :)

So many people complain about the boring Android UI. The thing is... I skin my iOS. For both Android or iOS, there are always people who find the UI dull, uninteresting and ugly.
Those earphones look quite decent with the flat tangle free cables. Not very fond of having hard plastic in my ears. Love to see how well they go. Bundled earphones never grab my attention.

I see lag on the s3.
Iphone 5 seems to run smoother.

S2 has lag.
Probably 4.1 should hide it all

quadcore @ 2.5Ghz & 2GB RAM and 4.1.x Maybe enough to hide it.
