[deleted post]Don't get me wrong, I like LG too, but they have copied Samsung for years now! Not just with smartphones, but with smartphone accessories (hence their flip covers), curved TVs, home appliances, etc. Yeah, those were all Samsung's ideas and LG almost instantly responded with their knock off versions of the exact same thing! LG became a business because they stole ideas from Samsung, so I dare you to become better than Samsung, otherwise stop putting down Sammy.
After making a crappy ugly flagship S5, they will launch the same but even more expensive...LG with its G3 must be very happy...

And don't take it so seriously either, this could very well be some made up photo.

mir, 04 Jun 2014You must have forgotten about the wave 1, 2 and 3. Those all had real brushed aluminum bodies.... moreI once had an aluminium Samsung smartphone, but build quality was bad. Never again.
I REAALLY hope that's NOT how it actually looks. How the hell can they be so blind as to what QUALITY looks like? You don't even need metal to make it good. Just make a SOLID phone with a good design. Take notes from HTC or even the Lumia phones (if you want to keep plastic). Hell even Blackberry has better build quality and uses more premium materials.
Even my Galaxy S1 Captivate was a better build than my current Note 3. The phone itself was a POS but at least it felt solid. I don't understand WTF is wrong with these guys? It's like they said "ohh you want metal?...how does a $3 ebay back plate sound?...is that what you mean?" NO SAMSUNG...NO!
Isaac a, 04 Jun 2014I have an S3 and Note 2 in my cupboard. Let me check...NOPE still glossy finger printed plastic! I have an old Note 2 here - the Grey version
The back is removable plastic but has the appearance of horizontal brushed metal
I think that's what everyone's referring to.
Sane concept - just improved versions of imitation metal. It's called innovation.
I think using actual metal just to pander to the die hard fans of metal is unpracticle if you want a removable back that won't scratch or dent when dropped.
I hope that we will see it extremely soon!(And so to confirm if all the rumors are true? Like the QHD Display, 3GB RAM / 32GB Storage, Aluminium body, etc) And because I can't wait longer to switch from my Galaxy S4. And otherwise I will switch absolutely to the LG G3 (but I will have to wait a bit longer as well, and because I want the 3GB RAM/32GB Storage version of the LG G3! )
Jimmy Case, 04 Jun 2014Soon there will be Galaxy G, H, I ,J, K....etc Boring!There already is a galaxy j, and k zoom :-)
