First of all, this review clearly shows that S3 is indeed a competition, and despite its age, a very good one. Second of all, Note 2 easily has G pro beat, especially in terms of multitasking. No way a phone with less than 5" screen can beat a phablet with 5"5 screen not to mention Note 2 has multiview.

-On screen vs hardware/capacitive buttons

The only other things i hate about LG is the poor after-sale support and (very) late OS updates.

I really like this phone.. I'm gonna buy it.. Earlier, i am a nokia fan..then people changed for a samsung galaxy revolution..
Samsung's time is over.. Its time to Lg..
I hate s3 and its design but optimus g is stunning design with blazing fast no.1 cpu and adreno 320 gpu..
I already owns nokia 700..i like it..more than this..optimus g is the best of all smartphones..(hope it gets updates very fast than samsung)

GSA : "So it seems we are one software update away from the moment when the Galaxy S III finally gives up its throne and the LG Optimus G succeeds it".

Now both phones are 4.1.2 .. so what u say GSA ? :)

This review doesn't make any sense you cant expect the galaxy s3 which has been out since may to be better than the lg optimus G. when the s4 comes out than try to see which is best!!!
