"Still, the LG Optimus G, just like its S III rival feels like an all plastic device (if we didn't know it from the LG press materials we'd have a really hard time telling that the back panel is made of glass), which to many isn't quite great for a flagship device. LG made it quite clear that with all the antennas the smartphone packs plastic and glass was its only choice"
So the trade off for the glass back is a NON REMOVABLE BATTERY AND NON EXPANDABLE MEMORY.
No microSD card slot
No Jelly Bean at launch
Mediocre sunlight legibility
Non user-replaceable battery
13MP camera hardly any better than competitors' 8MP units
You must understand that Samsung's main reason for the plastic back is the battery accessibility that you cannot possibly do with a glass. Samsung considers the convenience of changing the battery with ease. It's the reason why the Optimus G Pro also have removable glittery PLASTIC back cover mainly to access the battery.
Dante Hernandez, 06 Apr 2013LG Optimus G was already PROVEN TO BE THE BEST !
"#1 RATED SMARTPHONE"
LG Opti... moreThe bottom line is Samsung became famous because it's better especially with it's Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2. The latter became very famous that other companies ( like LG) copied it. Last year, it was the smartphone to beat that's why LG made the G Pro as "THE NOTE 2 KILLER" then armed it with the latest hardware and software. Do you think it is fair to compare a device from 2012 to the one released in 2013? Innovation in tech world within one year takes leaps and bounds so expect the Note 3 coming this year to be on par or even better than the G Pro.
Popular gadgets (like the iphone) are emulated but those days are gone. Now people are looking for the Note 2 or Note 3 killer.

"#1 RATED SMARTPHONE"
LG Optimus G is rated the best overall smartphone in the U.S.(AT&T , SPRINT) according to a leading consumer magazine as of 11/2012.
The LG Optimus G has been awarded at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) the Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Awards in the Wireless Handsets Category for its technical specifications, aesthetics, design and how the device compares in these categories to others in the market.

The LG Optimus G is also environment friendly, particularly the Sprint version in the USA, which is ULE Platinum Certified. It also received CarbonFree Product Certification from the Carbonfund.org Foundation, a leading organization in the fight against global warming and an authority on evaluating the impact individuals and businesses have on the environment.
On home grounds Korean consumers selected the Optimus G as the best Android smartphone. In the US, the leading consumer magazine ranked the Optimus G the number one smartphone. In Japan it was placed high in the best-selling rankings after only one week of its launch.

The worst thing they did is made the back of some LG phones glittery that it looks very feminine. It will look awkward if a big hunky man uses it.

Don't you have any proof to present?
Samsung phones are very innovative that's why they're popular.
Are you not gonna say anything of LG entering the phablet race and why it copied the Samsung Note?

LET ME CORRECT YOU
Samsung won TWO times ( s2 for 2011 & s3 for 2012)as device of the year @ MWC just simple because it sold million phones and they got billions of money involved ...
but in REALITY LG phone (Optimus G)is by far better performer! except for the sales& because its not a popular as samsung. s2, or s3.
SAMSUNG SPENDING TOO MUCH BILLIONS OF MONEY FOR THEIR AD.
while LG DO NOT spent too much money for their advertisements .
THAT'S WHY LG PHONES ARE MORE CHEAPER FOR THEIR PRICE COMPARE TO SAMSUNG PHONES.

i want both good build quality and good design and those what lg and sony are.
samsung phones are very popular , but look cheap plastic design.
samsung won best device because of its # of sales(popularity)..
but in real performance s3 is nothing compare to lg optimus g.
LG LOYALIST, 05 Apr 2013 we are the lg lovers and we don't have any problem with our lg phones
we are all satisfied ... moreThe bottom line is it will never be popular if it's not superior. Many times the S3 won the best gadget of the year. LG? None.
Now Samsung started the phablet with Galaxy Note. Many people thought the size looks ridiculous. But when competitors saw that it was a hit then everybody scrambled to get their phablet market share most notably is LG who almost copied the Note 2 sans S Pen stylus.
i love my 5 years old lg -chocolate(bl20)
lg was already proven to be the best in hardware and best in design!
most lg phones are look elegant...
cdnj, 03 Apr 2013You said it right there so I assume it's your phone. Enough arguing with a lunatic. we are the lg lovers and we don't have any problem with our lg phones
we are all satisfied we are loyal to lg!
f.y.i. optimus g was released worldwide with jelly beans (out of the box)
except these 4 countries (korea, japan, u.s.a.& canada) these countries got their optimus g ics version , but lg already rolling out jelly beans update for them...
samsung galaxy s3 is made of cheap plastic & inspired by soap toy!
while lg optimus g is made of premium materials ( gorilla glass front & back ) it looks very elegant phone,
won so many design awards worldwide...
redot, if and many more design's awards...
s3 is a loser.... it just a popular , but not better than optimus g.
Oh wait :) I love nokia tooooo!continue your arguments fellas! I'm done...I'm hitting my books now
Love LG/Sony/htc and moto.......I love these not so famous brands :) I get bored when I see the same brand phone everywhere I go! Shooooosh! #i won't mention names of those I don't like # our little secret ;)
