Nice. I hope this comes to T-Mobile. My wife currently has the G2X with CyanogenMod 7.2 and wants a bigger screen for her ebooks. Her sister is a Galaxy fan but she wants to be different so this is awesome news.

Also, by the time the phone battery has any real problem, it will be time for your hardware upgrade, so you will be switching to another phone anyway when your carier subsidized contract runs out. Unless you are saying in your country there is no such thing as carrier subsidized and you cannot buy phone at a low price with 2 years contract, then that is another story. But for most users out there, they will all get any smartphones or iphone under a 2 years contract,then there comes another hardware upgrade, so why bother?
sunny, 18 Sep 2012where do you read that it has a removable battery? i am not dumb but want to read what you st... moreWhy do you care for removable battery so much?By the time when your phone battery has problem it would be after 2 to 3 years,you are already entitled for another upgrade because your dealer/carrier subsidize contract will run out by then, so you can get another phone with even better specification and more advanced technology, why do you stick with a phone two years old by tehtime your battery has problem. hardware upgrade has become the norm these days especially with carier subsidize. Especially these days, one can get a new phone with new 2 to 3 years contract for as little as $0.00,so why bother about the non-removable battery. All new cell phone battery nowadays can last for at least 2 years, after that simply upgrade your phone if your non-removable battery has a problem, unless you ar ethose unlucky one whereby your phone cariers do not offer low contract price point so you have to buy it full price, then you have to botehr about it. But the vast majority do not.
LG Optimus G. is the new KING!

This is one of the best phones on the market, second after Optimus G, S3 is a little better but I wouldn't pay 150 $ more for a phone that's almost exactly the same in all areas as O4X. Anyway, Optimus G will be very expensive now, because it has just been launched. If you really want it, just wait a month or two for the price to drop. But I think you should stick with the O4X.
It's a gorgeous phone!I love its elite, straightforward design. The only thing that worries me is its battery. Adding a memory card slot would have been a very practical idea.
I WAS impressed by this phone.But it disappointed me in terms of non removable battery and no micro sd card slot.I will go for Samsung galaxy note 2.

Let's say that it wouldn't have removable back cover. This design has become very popular already on Motorola, Sony and of course HTC. It may look better with this non-removable back. Maybe some of you want a little more storage, but 32 gb is kinda good if you look at the rest of the phone's specs. It shouldn't matter that much...
