So even if the RAM of the LG is double that of the s3, (and 1 gig is more than enough) the hardware is newer, the camera resolution is higher, and the cpu is newer, the s3 seems to be the most popular choice. Why? Well many software tricks and the newer android version, plus the sd card slot, the user replaceable battery and the tricks the camera has to match the LG's bigger resolution (filming and snapping 6mppicks

The LG (should it get JB) will definitely be the winner of this beast war. However their track record with providing timely updates (or even updates at all) deals them a blow. I own last year's Samsung Galaxy S2 (international version) and I've read through my beloved Drippler app that I should be receiving JB 4.2 soon. All the way from Gingergread 2.3.3. Not only that, but it comes with some cool tricks that premiered with the S3. My last LG (which was actually my first touchscreen phone) was denied of an upgrade. LG, are you reading? My very old Nokia C5 (two and a half years old) received its last upgrade early this year. Support is very crucial for brand loyalty

LG Optimus G camera is wider in video mode than the Samsung Galaxy S III, which is usually an advantage as it lets you fit more in the frame.

LG Optimus 'G"
CAMERA Overall, the 13-megapixel camera gathers tons of detail and edges out the One X and Galaxy S III.

All in all the S3 still seems a better phone. While being a little sharper the Amoled still is the overall better and at 720p that sharpness difference is not so immediately obvious. The only place it really wins is GPU and cpu architecture yet even then Samsungs software still give better cpu performance. Web browsing for S3. Camera quality definitely goes to S3. Removable battery so you can out $12 3200MAH battery in. Up to a 64GB version and card slot up to 64GB. All and all S3 definitely. Though G should catch up more in updates. I expect better web results and clearer pictures after updates. Its call time is a pleasant surprise and

Same old story - super hyped LG phone with no software updates.

Never LG again. Not even the LG Nexus. Just on principle.

LG released his beast in the last of the year while Samsung released his beast to early. If compared with note 2 which is released with G. G sucks. Samsung S3 is cheap and have better functions. I will prefer S3.
