They make many phones, they make phones with GOOD features. Anyway, please see a review of this phone. Today I saw one, and they said it's not that good.

And if you don't want me to compare it to the S3, then don't say that this phone is not that good, because it clearly is. It has a better camera than the S3, and from what I've seen on the web, the S3 camera is the best from the first quadcore phones, O4X HD, One X and S3. It has a better CPU, the design and the UI is subjective, so we shouldn't talk about it. Then why isn't this phone that good? Because it has ICS? It's still better than all phones even with ICS. Imagine how it'll be with JB. And don't worry, if any other manufacturer will make a phone that can match LG's phone, LG will make a better phone, because they always are in front of the others and this will stay the same.

sometimes it gives poor image?
but when i pressed the camera bottom very well it produced more good image than previous one...

some people ( sammyboys& applefanboys) are jealous of this phone.

Well, I admit the Optimus G is a bit better than the S3, but you know the S3 is much older, and it has some feature which the Optimus G lacks(I am not talking about the internal storage, because that's OK).

The best HTC is the One X+, which isn't even close to the Optimus G. Motorola has phones with good batteries, but nothing else. And Samsung is the closest competitor, with the Note 2, but the Note 2 is too big and doesn't earn the right to be called a phone, it's a phablet.

Indeed, the black version looks far better than the white one.

If you know how to use the camera, you will have an excellent camera, if you aren't that good on tech stuff, then you won't have an excellent opinion about any other camera.

There are 4 reasons why this phone is hated:

1. It is the best
2. Sammy fanboys
3. Apple fanboys
4. Unadvised users using it.

And LG is best on design, so...if you don't like it, you have a problem. LG's design team has received design team of the year award numerous times and always keeps on innovating, the design, the screen and other features.

great specs, but i don't like the design, i think if lg add a powerful flash like xenon flash would be great.

I only want gsmarena to add HOX+ to the coprasion they said they will do between optimus g to the galaxy s3
i want to make sure i will buy the best the worlds has to offer
Besides that i am afraid that this phone will be like the atrix and will come and stay for along time with a locked bootloader thar will make things for developers a hard life and will slow down or erase the development completely so i think i will be able to chose because as much as i want to buy lg phone which looks great they do have a bad history
