I gave up on the LG G3 already. I don't like that nonsensical QHD display. Battery waster?

I'd buy G2, I think it's still the best smartphone! But, can't find a brand new D805, for my region, only used ones.
So I think I realized of another way to gear up to the best: I'll buy this beautiful and still capable Xperia Arc S!!
But not only that, as it's quite cheap then I'll buy the LG G Pad 8.3!!!!!!!!!
I'll have 2 great devices :D for less of the price of a G2, and better than a G3!!!!!!

WHAT DO YOU THINK GUYS!!!!??

Thanks LG for making great devices, anyway!!

- L

Pd: I think I'll be able to use/have the G Pad online through the WIFI HotSpot functionality of the Arc S! I have a good 2GB data plan, I can share it with the G Pad that way, right??
Please tell me what do you think n.n
Thanks!!

One thing better about 4.0 is that you can use one launcher that is not compatible with 2.3.4.. can't remember the exact name... Nova Launcher I think.

THE FACTORY SCREEN PROTECTOR that arc have is really hard to see.. You need to see it in very close look at the edge of the screen.. You will notice that something is intact with.your screen.. Very thin and needed a long nail for.you to removed it.. After removing it just clean the screen with a clean clothe with alchohol or just a little amount of water.

Take a close look at your arc s without screen protector.. The factory screen protector of arc s is still intact.. It is a bit hard to remove this. Watch on you tube to see if you have a dought on me. Just see it your self.. Mine i remove the factory screen guard.. Much better screen display and the glass will be reveal.. Try to see your arc s.. With no screen guard.. Notice its just like plastic like.. Because of the factory screen guard still intact.

Had the phone for about two years. Doesn't use micro sim card. Isn't 1,4 ghz but 1.3 ghz.. screen is not scratch resistant and I believe the resolution is 640/480 or something on that manner..
