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

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

LG. But then if it is about the
screen size n JB out of the box
then its Sammy. Personally
I will go for the later. Cheers.
rj23, 03 Sep 2012i think you are way too advanced to say S3 got released 6 mos ago, it was announced in May and... morelol you do not get it do you? what how quickly the phones moves through home screens etc makes it the better phone? lol ok you run with that... im not saying the s3 is better im saying is you cannot make statements like "Optimus G is still superior and will definitely be" when the phone is not released yet.
yes specs on paper the phone looks awesome and totally agree if there is a phone to knock the s3 from top spot this phone is the most likely.. but specs on paper do not determine how well the phone actually performs and yes i do hope this phone lives up to its specs because i'll probably sell the s3 for this one.
6mths , 3mths 1mth.. basically as soon as ones technology is fixed and released it becomes dated and its inevitable that better specs will continue again samsung might announce an even higher spec'd phone in a months time.. whats your point?
everyone sees the benchmark pi of the new dual cores and think wow wow its better.. absolutely not the case.. again in day to day life the actual 'speeds' will be unnoticeable..
and thats what most dont get..ie sony fans.. having a quad core will not make the cpu in general run any quicker, but more efficient and powerful.. absolutely
i am really hoping for the best for LG, LG has always been the underdog and LG can't blame people for that due to the fact that they're left behind in updating their OS for their valued customers who believe in their products and i hope they won't do the same mistake to this baby coz this phone deserves LG's full attention and when it happens, LG will take home the crown of having the best android device ever for 2012.

Anonymous, 03 Sep 2012seriously , the benchmarks pi mean nothing and in real life use the difference in speeds will ... morei think you are way too advanced to say S3 got released 6 mos ago, it was announced in May and released in June which makes it 3 mos old by now and that is a fact! Note 2 will be released in October but the Optimus G will be sometime this month, September... So technically, Optimus G will be released first even if the Note 2 was announced first and yet, Optimus G is still superior and will definitely be coz there's already a video on youtube about the first hands-on experience with this monster and it is super fast! no matter how fast the reviewer moved his finger and do the tasks, the phone kept up with everything and the transition compared to S3 and the Note 2 on IFA were all blown away by this. even the hands-on and VS video of the Xperia T vs S3, XT was faster on that video and loaded everything first than S3. just admit that its not always xmas for Samsung, in fact, Sony has better reputation in making electronic gadgets compared to Samsung. its just that Sammy was lucky enough to show their presence all these times because they make a lot of galaxy models which Sony and LG didn't do. now, Sony and LG are back in the league and Nokia too! it will be a great competition for these manufacturers, i hope Moto bounces back too. i still bet though that this Optimus G will be the reigning king of androids till Sony and Sammy makes another quad core with better specs than this. once Sony releases a quad krait device with adreno 320, Optimus G's reigning will be stopped and 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...

so if the actual differences in speed between the quad and dual are non existent.. which sounds like the better option?

and even if they outdo the galaxy s3 guess what.. it was released 6 mths ago!.. and thats still a big IF.
Lg has changed its strategy from 4x HD.And there phones are really outstanding.Congrats LG.All of you gyus are waiting for this phone.But I will wait for lg 5 inch full hd display phone with 440 ppi! Hope it will posses more specialties.
iHATER, 28 Aug 2012nice phone... but lets see what note 2 z goin to give us... if it have exynos 5 chip wid mali ... moreunfortunately for Note 2, it only uses exynos quad outdated A9 chipset though its clocked at 1.6GHz so still it has a little edge over the S3 coz S3 is underclocked only at 1.4GHz. both S3 and Note 2 use the Mali-400 GPU so it is not superior to this phone by LG! LG, this could be your year! go for the gold! i love the newly announced devices from Sony but they're only dual core powered and i found Optimus G so i told myself that why not get a phone that has better specs than what Sony can offer? you powered up your Optimus G with quad S4 processor and Adreno 320 GPU when Sony only used dual core S4 and a GPU Adreno 225 where S3 and Note 2 can't keep up a battle with, what more with your Optimus G? LG, please make sure you won't fail us with your LIFE IS GOOD statement so keep this bad boy updated all the time once its released! again, goodluck! ^^
