Just consider one, battery life, G2 sits on the pinnacle of web bwrosing time in all of the competition, even note3, note 2 can only dream of.

SGS4 is still the best Android smartphone of the year. A better processor alone doesn't make the LG better. SGS4 is better overall.

A bezel-less LG G2 or the phone with a lot of bezel, Sony Xperia Z1. The huge bezel on the Z1 has a purpose. The Z1 is a sturdy and elegant phone at the same time. Scratch-proof, dust-proof, water-proof, shatter-proof all at once. The LG G2 ain't either of them. LG G2's design is a complete ripoff of the S4, not to mention the software derives greatly from Samsung's touchwiz. It has no identity of its own. And OIS has no big practical advantage. I'd take the excellent low-light camera performance of Z1 over the useless OIS of LG G2 anyday.

LG mopped the floor with the S4 out of the water and back in the bucket again here. LG is truly a winner no doubt!

SGS4 is better. LG G2 is an SGS4 wannabe and the original will always be better.

Screw you Samsung for dropping the FM Radio!

Anyways we know S4 is not at all a match for G2 ( just like Note2 with GPRo and S3 with OptimusG/nexus4)

can imagine what LG will introduce in G-PRO2 .. no doubt it will be unique

> In reply to joonius @ 2013-09-17 05:46 from x8yE - click to readI used to think the way before, but the rest of G2 specs vs S4 are simply better and superior. G2 has longer web browsing time, admit it you will use your smartphone mainly for web browsing, it's camera has OIS, it's 5.2" screen with a compact size similar to S4 is a stunning, and so on and so forth...

Its 20.7 MP camera with no OIS is useless, and its 3000 mah battery is miles behind G2. And the ninja square edge design is far from being ergonomic. So u need to be aware how u will deeply regret Z1 when you feel how uncomfortable it is with one hand. But I am waiting for Xperia Z3(2015) when Sony learned from LG how to have an edge-to-edge stunning display and 12 hrs web browsing time and is very comfortable with one hand.

So why are you concentrating on touchwiz .. atleast LG dont have S-LAG and no need to switch off animations for removing S-LAG.

From past 1.5 year LG have optimus-UI .. if you saw earlier LG feature phones u may say it got copied from ther .. only thing is you have only seen your S-LAG phone .. so you will feel everything got copied from there

all of it come to pricing imo.
in my country, 32 GB LG G2 come around 50euro cheaper than 16Gb SGS4, and we got another 50euro cashback, a bluetooth headset (worth around 70euro according to advertisement), and online shop voucher worth around 70 euro. With that pricing i'm sure G2 have a slight advantage here.

P.S: I live in indonesia, SGS4 selling at IDR7,499,000 meanwhile G2 selling at IDR6,799,000. On pre-order we got IDR700,000 cashback + Bluetooth Handsfree LG HBS-730 Worth IDR1,000,000 according to the ads + Online Shop Voucher worth IDR1,000,000.
>1 Euro = ~IDR15,000 atm.
