I'm impressed by LG's efforts this time around. Very good display, snappy performance, one of the best cameras, decent battery life... but, but, it does have its share of negatives: The physical design is mediocre, cartoonish UI, lack of microSD.

While Xperia Z1 beats G2 in physical design, UI and availability of microSD.. it would be interesting to see how its camera and battery life fare.

LG UI is a complete copycat of Touchwiz, just look at the Camera UI, Smart screen, Smart Video, etc...

actually EYE TRACKING TECHNOLOGY WAS First INVENTED BY LG E. Before Samsung barrowed it. .
it was an issue long time ago back in 2005 & 2009!

Samsung was the copycat not LG!

by the way LG& Samsung are working together in South Korea! LG Stores selling samsung tablet "HOMEBOY"

LG didnt copied Samsung's smart video... you can look at youtube in G Pro OS update.. the date when they upload that feature is before S4 even launched

Good battery life, especially the web browsing rating is great! This is it(unless Xperia Z1 beats it, which I doubt).

Finally, LG has put huge efforts to make the Optimus UI a worthy rival of Samsung's TouchWiz. And you know what - this time LG might have done exactly that. The new Optimus UI is more coherent and more functional, bringing lots of useful features and services while still managing to stay relatively simple to use. We have always appreciated the many themes and icon packs LG was offering with previous handsets, but let's be honest - nobody above the age of 12 was actually going to use some of those colorful disasters.
