The launch or should I say "non launch" of the LG Optimus G was an epic fail and it looks like this would be the same. By the time this is out, it will be competing with iP5s, Honami and who knows what else from Samsung. Launch anr release within or month or why bother! Coupled with lack of support by LG means whilst I might have been thinking about getting, it will remain just that...a thought!
Obvious to any idiot that these are snap on cases! Seriously GSMArena, this is not too difficult to figure out. By the way, those plastic snap on cases are so cheap and nasty looking. Why ruin a good phone with such horrible cases!
I have a very strong impression that these are just fake photos. Although many have noted that this just looks like covers for the G2, I'm pretty sure they are not even that. Excellent mock-ups are easy to do now with the right software. Anyone familiar with designer software and a good eye should be able to detect some poor finishing of shadow and reflection on the backs. A careful comparison with the official teaser video also highlights flaws with these latest pictures.
I really liked the Optimus g with it's design but the G2 doesn't excite me at all. It's a S4 copy. Don't think it will be able to come an anywhere close to HTC One or Galaxy S4.
AnonD-133520, 25 Jul 2013Oh damn, it's looks like a cheap Chinese phone :(HTC chairman said: HTC is a brand created by Chinese...
So do you think it is cheap ?
There's a light switch below the camera. It must have a flashlight.
AnonD-111968, 25 Jul 2013HTC One? oh no, best design must involve some calculation: Ratio of Length to Width of HTC is ... moreG2 will be the MOST COMPACT Design for a smartphone.
5.46inches TALL, 2.8inches WIDE, 6.8mm THIN.
imagine 5.2" DISPLAY?
[deleted post]HTC One? oh no, best design must involve some calculation: Ratio of Length to Width of HTC is bigger than the industry average: HTC One =137.4mm/68.2mm=2.015, GS4=136.6/69.8=1.957 and Xperia Z=139/71=1.958. The bigger ratio for HTC One shows that it is too long for it's screen size and width, and it is not good looking geometrically. Another thing it's full metal body means u can be electricuted someday just like the iphone incidents recently.
AnonD-161820, 25 Jul 2013”Europe and the rest of the world will get the smartphone in October.” Why not in 2014, eventu... moreThis is another marketing failure by LG. They're doing opposite to Samsung and Apple that releases GLOBALLY their flagships in less than a month after it's launch and that's one reason why they remain on top. LG, would u let your POTENTIAL GLOBAL customers forget this G2 because the Note3 or DISPOSABLE(fixed battery) iphones are coming very soon, likely on October. Please release it GLOBALLY and SIMULTANEOUSLY, August is PERFECT,September is OK, October is TOO LATE.
”Europe and the rest of the world will get the smartphone in October.” Why not in 2014, eventually in March, to get it when the Galaxy S5 will be already launched??? Or why not in 2015? Oh no, that will be the year for the only update, maybe to Android 2.2 Froyo prepared using LG's new version of Samsung's TouchWiz!!!
AnonD-143205, 25 Jul 2013cheap design,cheap design? i would say Great design with a reasonable price, LG don't frustrate the world this time. Release it simultaneously as Apple did when they released their disposable iphones.
omg it's clear in the picture, "for" and it means is a cover for the phone
It's only a cover for the phone, relax already and nothing for nothing who the hell is always staring at the back of their phone.
This is obviously the protective case for G2! The the trim around the LED flash..
it is a case! it says that "For LG G2"!!
so ugly if it is the color of the G2!!
COME ON DUDE, That's just a third party protective case!!! Is is really that hard to figure that out?
I know when it comes to internals they are up there with the best, but honestly they need to hire a new inovating team. Their past success have been plagued by naive and embarrasing flops: their "just like a cube" ui; their 3d flagship; the vu phablet and now the volume rocker at the back.
the only thing they can do is copy and be in the shadow of samsung and apple. Samsung makes amoled, apple ips, so lg makes their own display. Samsung phableting, lg copies. Samsungs plastic design, oh theres lg with it too. And whenever they try and appear innovative, they go and do something stupid.
