An OS that can run on minimal hardware is a good OS (it will definitely run better on higher specs). It offers the users much POWER for less $$$ - a sort of "counter-Apple Inc." principle.
Just look at the Nexus 7 which is a $200 tablet. One can also look at the success of the affordable Kindle Fire.
Anonymous, 17 Oct 2012LG stands for Life's Garbagemy lifes far from garbage after owning many LG devices, sorry to hear about urs though aye
Why LG,google why,guys please go back to HTC,my nexus one was one of the best phone I ever had,and was a pioneer.whyyyyyyyy?
guest, 15 Oct 2012waiting for nexus iphone (inexus,nexus i)Yea,nice idea. Probably the most selfish and proud tech company will work with google if they pay apple billions of dollars.
Why are people upset it might be LG? This is a nexus phone which means everything will come from google. LG will just build it. Just like my current nexus. So I won't mind trying it out. I don't like the 8gb internal if it's true unless it has micro sd slot. :)
In Korea, there is a general acceptance that LG after the optimus LTE 2 has been improved to the level that its phones could almost compete with the Galaxy series phones. After having used the Optimus G (my brother's phone) for a while, I feel that the UX is at least at part with Samsung smartphones (at least to my German Note N7000). I am thinking of switching to LG Nexus when it comes with 1080p resolution for the IPS screen.
I'd like to see a Sony Nexus. Atleast it would be good looking!
Google will regret of his decision to select LG for nexus,its horrible manufacturer of phone.Nothing is user friendly.
[deleted post]i am also agree with bro,google should think 100 time,before selecting LG type failure manufacturer for NEXUS.i have 6 phones experience of it, and heat LG a lot..........
Denzo, 14 Oct 2012Phone looks nice, I have no experience with LG though.. wait to see what everyone says once th... moreLG is not much user friendly,then other competitors.they should still learn about some easy short-cuts,and how to make a long life battery,As its life goes finish under 1.5 years only.
[deleted post]It won't be priced as much as an iphone, there's talks of it being very reasonably priced (No phone costs as much as an iphone anyway...) . Also this is a very old preproduction model, I'm 99% sure it will come in higher memory capacities than 8 GB. So relax, :-) it's all good.
Oh My, 14 Oct 2012Blehh..all the theory about nexus devices being reference designs and not supposed to be top l... moreTrue the Nexus range is supposed to be Googles show off flagship smartfone..Yet the Samsung Nexus S lauched just as everyone was going dual-core..The Samsung Nexus has cheap components and the dimmest screen on the market,not exactly top dog spec and quality..Maybe LG will use better components..
Everyone seems to get spec obbsessed but its so much more than that...Its camera quality good video recording,good microphones and earpiece that is nice and clear..The screen quality and sunlight ledgibility battery life..Its no good having 16 core 4 GB RAM if the rest of phone is poor.
