do we really need a quadcore for a phone? I'm more concern of battery life. But if this phone can last 18 hours of browsing, this will definitely be the best.
This is the REAL next generation smartphone unlike Note 2 which is only a REFRESH of the last generation chipset. Good job LG.
Since LG's phones have locked bootloader, bad software upgrade history and etc...is really hard to convince me to buy this phone although the specs is so interesting
does the back cover pop open to replace battery or its like the iphone? things i love about LG is back cover pops open for battery, sim, micro SD. there have been lot of good sony phones but i settled for LGO4X and am very happy with it but i surely will buy this one.
just wait for the coming of the king of all smartphone optimus g.
just check it out
there is a new video for the international version.
iphone 5. will eat dust! interm of performance and specification....
l.g. did the best of their best to make this phone as iphone5's killer!!!!!!!!!!
I wont this one. I have Galaxsy S3 but maybe i will sell it to fund this one....
dinosaur specs for a smartphone. but lg need to focus on their support. their recent flagship optimus 4x had video recording issues. this is pathetic, for a company like lg why can`t they release it without issues. and that`s it no other features at all just a powerful hardware won`t sell . in that case every chip manufacturer would have their own branded handsets . bring out some software innovations. well enough said . i m bored
Anonymous, 05 Sep 2012hey ive obviously seen different s3 comparison speed tests to the xperia t than you on youtube... moreyou have a point in your last statement coz S3 in the US has almost the same specs as the new Xperia lineup but, not everyone lives in the states and still, i am comparing the old exynos a9 quad core to the new S4 a15 krait dual core. let's just check out how this optimus G performs. maybe only few were lucky to have a chance to get their hands on this handsome badboy but, once it comes to the Philippines, i will make my choice if i should get this over the new Xperia lineup, Note 2 or iPhone5. cheers!
I don't get it. Why Lg go with 768x1280 instead of 720p (720x1280) which is the common screen ratio on the market now. If they choose that 768x1280 screen, there won't be much games optimized for that kind of screen ratio.
why lg go with 768x1280 instead of common 720x1280? i dont get it, 720p is the standard HD screen and most games are running on it. So i think the Optimus G with its 768x1280 screen will be hardly to find games optimized for that kind of screen ratio.

speeds are pretty much exactually the same running through homes screens and launching the app drawer if anything the sgs3 is slightly quicker, but the camera does start up quicker by .05 of a second not 2-3 as you said lol..
just so we can avoid any arguements
cut and paste from gsma ok
"The US version of the Samsung Galaxy S III is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chipset with two Krait CPU cores, clocked at 1.5GHz. Due to its newer architecture, Qualcomm's latest creation performs on par with quad-core chipsets from the previous generation"
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2012lol you do not get it do you? what how quickly the phones moves through home screens etc makes... moreand just to comment on Sammy releasing a higher end device than the S3? maybe its already the Note 2 as of now, and that's gonna be it for maybe another year like it was from S2 to S3 and Note 1 to Note 2? and to tag it with another story, remember that Apple sued Sammy and added a few more devices from Sammy to be banned in certain places so if you already checked out the list, S3 was included and if that happens, Sammy will be forced to stop the production of S3 or maybe stop providing this model to the areas where Apple requested them to ban the product. maybe the Note 2 will be included anytime soon especially if Sammy sells like hotcakes with their Note 2! i am still on Sammy's side though coz i once owned an S3 and i admit it is better on the inside than my One X but One X is more gorgeous and i hope this Optimus G is more handsome than my One X coz i bet it will perform better than my HTC. ^^

rj23, 05 Sep 2012and if speed doesn't matter to you, then fine! we all have reasons why we like a device over t... morewhat are you talking about?? i agreed and said if any phone will become the new standard this will be the most likely
all i was sayin is the phone isnt released yet so its all assumptions until it is
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2012i will quote "Sammy should upgrade to a better chip and better GPU coz S3 and Note 2 were... moreif you were able to catch the video from youtube where S3 went head to head with Xperia T, the first one ate a lot of dust in opening different programs on the phone like the Playstore, google site, camera, music and video players, messaging app, etc! that's the answer to your question about explanation. even if Xperia T was only 1 or 2 secs ahead of S3, the main point is that it is faster and more powerful even if you disregard the speed coz as what you said its not noticeable in a day to day usage but again, new Xperia line is faster so what more with the Optimus G? double the power of the new line of Xperias will definitely make other phones smoke and eat dusts in the end of every battle that this phone will go thru against other flagship devices from other makers like Samsung, HTC, Moto, Apple and Sony. let us just make the right choice, and i hope for me, when this comes to the Phils. it would be the best choice that i'll ever make in getting a device. cheers! ^^

Krait has been around for a few months already and it has not failed in speed tests and reliability just to tell you. the HTC One S of my friend always runs faster than my One X and sometimes with my bestfriends' S3 which actually came from me coz i sold it to him coz i wanted a better looking device coz S3 looks ugly and looks like a bar soap, especially the white color but, i had to admit that S3 is faster than the One X. Krait processor with dual core cpu is reliable enough in speeds and in handling a better battery life so i bet LG was able to make the best decision to come with Snapdragon's S4 Krait and not providing this Optimus G an Nvidia Tegra 3 cpu coz this will get a better performance. take note, sometimes the 4X HD even runs a lil faster than S3 connected to the same wi-fi or even when using the same internet SoC from the same network provider here in the Phils. you won't make me change my mind of thinking that this will be better than S3 and new Not2 and the new line up of Xperia phones.
