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! ^^
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2012lol you do not get it do you? what how quickly the phones moves through home screens etc makes... moreand if speed doesn't matter to you, then fine! we all have reasons why we like a device over the other one. 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.
Mobilemaster, 05 Sep 2012Samsung has the best marketing strategy, I use to tell this to many people. They make many pho... morehey i own the sgs3 but what your saying is kinda obvious.. of course it will sell more its a bigger/ more recognized company plus the sgs3 has been out for almost 4mths
sales do not mean the best device though..
Anonymous, 05 Sep 2012umm, how when the note2 and optimus G havent been released yet???Samsung has the best marketing strategy, I use to tell this to many people. They make many phones for almost every needs. They lacks only great camera phones. If they will start to make phones with 14, or 16 MP with optical zoom, Samsung will be more famous then now.
I am 100% sure Samsung will sell more S3 devices then LG the Optimus G.
If we talk about the Note, Samsung sold more than 5 million, and I am sure they will have even a bigger success with the Note2.
Shiva, 04 Sep 2012Im Loving it ...waiting for its release and hoping it has medium price with all the featuresKeep hoping... The world's most powerful phone and a mid-range price? Good luck with that
Mobilemaster, 04 Sep 2012I agree with you.umm, how when the note2 and optimus G havent been released yet???
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2012SGS3- Gold. SGNote 2 - Silver. Optimus G - Bronze. I am refering to sales. Enough said.I agree with you.
Im Loving it ...waiting for its release and hoping it has medium price with all the features
Great looking phone, although I hope they up the MicroSD support to 64Gb like the Samsung Galaxy S III.
this could change LG one of the best sellers in the field of the smartphone area.
hoping for that.
good phone.but going to fail bcoz Lg is not as good as sony,samsung,htc and apple in keeping there phones updates.Also many people think that Lg phones are of cheap standard.And yup ,there is no nearby service centre of lg in our area
rj23, 03 Sep 2012i think you are way too advanced to say S3 got released 6 mos ago, it was announced in May and... morei will quote "Sammy should upgrade to a better chip and better GPU coz S3 and Note 2 were killed in benchmarks and other things that you've expected quads to be better but Sammy failed. sorry..."
killed in speeds which will be unnoticeable in real term is what i guess your referring to?
and what other things are you referring to? explain..
btw didnt expect the quads to be quicker in fact was surprised the new dual cores were not faster
