I used to own an LG phone a few years ago. The screen wasn't very responsive... The UI was quite restrictive, it was a phone. It worked the way it should and that was all. I moved to the iphone afterwards. It was very easy to use (user experience improved after jailbreak)... with a large range of apps and fashion accessories (like some barbie doll) that I just don't bother with. But the fact is, I'm losing interest. I'm not fond of itunes (sync, sync, sync), Apple's series of global lawsuits (Suing a Poland Supermarket over a so-called similar logo isn't a first time, they sued an Australia supermarket called Woolworths back in 2009) and premium pricing (for what its hardware or software is worth...). Okay... getting back to the subject of interest.
Well, judging from the specs... this LG phone is certainly powerful. Ram, Quad Krait, GPU, camera, resolution. The design is sleek, I'd certainly get a black one myself. The only thing that would stop me from throwing my money at it is... updates. LG has a track record of either abandoning their phones or being very slow with updates. They have good innovation for their hardware, just that it's lacking in their software department... I'm tied between Samsung Galaxy Note II and this beauty. Size isn't a concern for me, I prefer a bigger screen with good clarity so I don't have to squint my four-eyes. Hopefully this one will upgrade to Jelly Bean as it plans to, or else it'd be CM10. No, a longer and thinner phone just doesn't meet my needs. Sure I'm not hoping to carry a brick but being 33 grams heavier isn't going to tip my scales. I'm sure everyone knows what phone I'm relating to. So, I shall wait for both the release of the Note II and Optimus G.
That was a very long post. I'd be surprised if anyone read this.
Note: I have never used an Android phone before but I'm keen on giving it a shot after reading reviews and watching user experiences on Youtube.
After the launching of iphone5
We can say that no one can beat Optimus G...
Optimus G. is the newChampion !!!
Wow!Amazing, design is an LG Optimus Chocolate on the making, a killer phone indeed!
sunny, 12 Sep 2012can anyone one confirm that back pops open for battery replacement, micro SD, and sim? LGO4X ... moreI've read somewhere that it's supposed to have a removable battery, at least for the Korean version. No idea about the Japanese version, or any other TBA versions. The sim card & micro sd should be removable as well, but I don't know where they're located.
In terms of specs cpu, ram, camera & battery this is THE BEST PHONE of the year (or in mobile history to date - given that the quad krait CPU and Adreno GPU out performs or is equal to that of SGSIII). If it is equal then this still has more ram With 2GB and higher pixel density 318ppi. Also the physical design is arguable better looking that S3. Just needs a stock Jelly Bean themed UI and we've got the killer of the year!
Here's a Question for our Android OEMs...
Why not ALL ( or more than 2-4)
1) Assemble a KICK ASS Legal DREAM TEAM.
2) Go after (Cr)apple good and proper.
3) Scorched earth mentality.
After all, unless YOU PEOPLE assume this is all going to blow away, (Cr) apple is going to continue to bludgeon you in every way possible. In the press. Or as they did XEROX see how YOU generate ideas, and "improve" on it. Patent it, then assume it suddenly belongs to (Cr)apple. A Travesty. But real.
TUSHARR23, 13 Sep 2012I dont know........but plz,tell me ur experience with 4x hd.Mention about its clarity,camera a... moreI am quite happy with it. runs smooth battery is better than an SGIII. Camera and video are very nice. my only issue if any would be with software but i can deal with that as i used SGII and this is a bit different. Overall i would say 8.5/10. Phone is quite think could have been a bit smaller than 131 mm but it fits nice in the hand. back cover is very nice and you dont have to worry about the phone slipping out of your hand.
I only buy the phones that have the removable battery incase the phone freezes. i had that problem with iPhone and sony xperia ion. ion was a waster of my money i sent it back in a day!
anyway thats my review of the phone. i want to really find out about this phone as i will not go back to Apple.

iDroidFan, 12 Sep 2012Hmm, rectangular shape with rounded corners. iFanboys can start trolling and LG can begin to p... moreNah, given that the original iPhone was something of an LG Prada ripoff, it seems LG has the upper hand here.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2012Apple iPhone 5 killer for sure... Why compare to sub-standard Apple! You must be in the dark ages! Rounded corners are ok, but scream 'girly' just like the Honda CRV.
Specs are no more interested. even Chinese phones have 1 Ghz cpu and more ram. Now support and ads more interested. Apps play more imprtant roles
WOW this phone is monster!!! Far better than S3 and NOTE2 in term of performance and display.. It use Krait quad!! Dual Krait already beat the exynos quad core, now it quad Krait?? Damn good performance..
Although it looks like iphone but do you know why apple never sue LG in term of design? Because LG had prada before and iphone looks like prada.
This Lg is prefekt phone quand core 13 pixel camera this is good of iphone 5 and samnsung galaxy s3 bravo LG
It's just too big. sure it makes sense when it's this powerful.
I want a phone that's small but has a great camera and is fast and good battery life.
a lot of people have tablets now including me which means I want a smaller phone not a bigger one! maybe I will switch from android to bb10 or dare i say it ... :O :O iphone 5 :s
Iphone 4S 140 grams
Galaxy s3 133 grams
galaxy s2 116 grams
galaxy s1 119 grams
Iphone 5 112 grams!!!!!
LG : 145 grams!!!!
yep premium feel. Also other website stated that the back is made of glass. The japanese version probably has plastic back due to phone needing to be waterproof.... thats why the cheap look on some photos i think.
Big screen, smaller then galaxy s3. Android with a iphone feeling. Im definitely getting this one.
Where does the september release date come from??? I hope its true.
