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.

octa and snapdragon S4 users will be dissapointed? why? because snap800 version is only available in korea?

How will soo many variants affect your feeling? Because i can assure you those variants are made for other markets, you will not see all those variants at your store. Are you that nerdy that when another variant is out for your phone, your gonna cry about it and tell the whole world how disappointed you are that your phone doesn't feel special?

how old are you? LOL

i hate the way sony release their flagshp .too early, as well as lg for releasing it late. they should release flagshps at same time. so they will be comparable to each other. :3

Expandable storage and replaceable battery gives automatic win for the S4 for me.

Referring to your review on cost. In Indonesia, the 32GB LG G2 retails for IDR 6.799.000 and the 16GB S4 retails for IDR 6.999.000. So G2 costs less and has better specs than S4.

I'm not an LG fan boy but this is a biased comparison, how can you describe the AMOLED screen of being an advantage over the IPS LCD without looking at people's preferences and needs.
LOTS of people out there can't stand AMOLED screens because they irritate the eyes, I can't stand half an hour of full brightness on them. So the MAIN reason for buying an LG2 for me is because it's the closest to the S4 with actually a decent screen instead of those cheap AMOLEDs.
One thing you may like others may dislike, that's life, accept it and stop being biased.

> In reply to Ronny @ 2013-09-17 02:45 from vV5G - click to readThere is a thing called as Shipment and there is also a thing called delivery through someone and there is also a thing that you have no idea where it is fixed or not. I mis-wrote about those two Octa and S600 but you know something. The Octa was never meant for my country but I can see it in many shops in bulks. Anyways, nice try though.

I'm more interested in Exynos' stability since it's fabbed by Samsung than Snapdragon on TSMC. The Snapdragon S4 Pro in my Nexus 7 (2013) heats up more and tends to close app on demanding games like Modern Combat 3.

Now it's September and I don't see any more powerful variant available at any stores now. The snapdragon 800 version is only for Korea. So I don't see your point there but nice try though. By the way the octa is GT-i9500.

Wow - all that power and no where to go but to drive the operating system. I will wait for the LG Z100, or the Samsung Universe S100, but I am worried both will do not much more that an original iPhone. Opps, that is my candy bar Nokia mobile phone calling me. It works. Ar back again. To me these devices do not deliver the great leap forward in usability as did the S2 or iPhone 4 when they came out. These mobiles are like dragsters with no wheels. I can appreciate the work of their engineers, remarkable, but I have no need to buy one. Actually I use a Blackberry Z10 which does the secure job, and a top of the range Sony Notebook which a mobile phone will never be able to replace in business.
