And still user replaceable battery helps a lot in that area.

Due to Amoled display, thinner, removable battery, SD Slot, real buttons with useful function, and better software with more features the G2 could not really over take the S4.

Having S800 and .2inch bigger screen"taken up by buttons have the time negating the difference most of the time" did not blow S4 away.
Not to say the G2 is not a great device.
Also not to mention G2 screen is over saturated too.

Burn in is not a common wide spread issue. And LG's perfect color saturation is a lie because they saturate their screens.

And cheating? That's where you show you true jealousy. Next?

> In reply to kachil @ 2013-10-13 21:05 from t1$I - click to readeveryone knows AMOLED have burnout issues ..
and have less subpixels .. The colour what you are telling is just for 6 months .. you can now check with old note2/s3/s2/s4 . Samsung will just fake ppl
display/benchmarks/ anything ..
LG will never mass produce OLED displays unless the burnout issues and other issues are solved.. and FYI I OLED, LG have RGBW pixel arrangement for superior whites compared to samsung RGB ..

Another cheating by samsung Note-3 here in INDIA ..
In showrooms, samsung giving demo piece with
Snapdragon-800 but selling Exynos-5 Octacore which is have heating issues. So cheating customers im many ways .. still fans are blind .. but ppl who want to be careful , check the model name before you give your hard earned money..

Even micromax using ips .colour saturation of iphone 5 and 4s is different ,why? Because people like good colour reproduction. S4 super amoled producing a good colour reproduction with high contrast. Same time it has different colour setting .

I think this 2 phones are unbelievably great. In comparison I think the galaxy S4 is the clear winner, because it was released ealier and it has sold millions. If people were to choose which is better between the 2 the majority would favour the galaxy S4.

I was going to get a Samsung S4 for my wife because until now I have been moderately impressed with their products. HOWEVER, after the recent developments with region locking of high end Samsung phones from July 2013, as mentioned in another article on this forum, I have decided to stay away from ALL Samsung phones because of this money grabbing exercise displayed ONLY by Samsung. The LG L2 looks like a winner to me. Shame on you Samsung – You have lost a customer for good and hello LG!
