audio output and autofocus problem i hope are software related and will be solved by lg, otherwise lg is faceing low sales. competition is just too strong, lg should be smarter.
So glad GSMArena does a quick list of pros and cons..I can scan through this and decide instantly whether its for me...The minute i read poor screen visibility or poor battery or poor audio output etc,etc i can just stop and not bother with the product..Come on LG most of us use the smartfones MP3 player yet you should have checked output surely??????

"Tegra 3 CPUs are built on 40nm process, while Exynos uses 32nm"
Is that really a disadvantage?

"suspect build quality (the strip of plastic at the base of the phone popped loose when pulling out the charger)".....no major, just ur BAD LUCK =)
"Not a bad phone and 3rd in the race but the pricing probably says it all (not aiming high)".....come 2nd after SGS3 in some features, but hell every1 knows what come 3rd (last), do more research. and yes again, do SMARTER research about "price & aiming high", its not a factor *sigh*

"companion core is not as effective as 32nm HKMG Exynos" is what they say in theory. but in real life....it isnt true =)
compare it, coz i did =)
MHL tv out should be under "Main disadvantages"
it's just completely stupid to expend someoen to carry a box that needs power to a firends house.
The hdmi option on other phones is jsut infinitely better cause i can put a a very tiny minihdmi to hdmi adapter as a keyfob and whenever i go to frineds houses or any place with a hdmi tv i can plug it in simpel as that. also i have the usb port free for a usb hub with mouse+keyboard+hd drive + flash stick.

you just had BAD LUCK. past is past. get over it.
every phone has its own issues, Samsung is no better, dont forget the screen color problem on Galaxy Note with NO solution, but just thought of it as another flaw.

#BIG NO to HTC has better screen!
go give 500 euros like we did with the 2x even if we warned you ALL how awfull LG is on software delivering and that they even let obstacles to the dev community to make new PROPER roms
the s3 is priced at 38000 indian rupees
and the htc onex is at 34000 indian rupees
although the fixed battery and memory expansion is something i hate
now it all depends if i wish to update to this phone on the price it is launched
Seems LG aren't interesting in competing with Samsung
anymore and it shows.
embarrassingly the camera can't even match the SGS2?!
Don't even bother talking about audio quality,
And now HTC have the better screen.
I'm an ex-owner of OptimusX2 i can tell you never ever come near to any of LG phones they gave us a hell of time! One of the most terrible life battery - Screen touch issues - Sound quality! i used numerous of sound boosters only minimal effects i got - And the worst is NO UPDATE they launcher their phones with many bugs and DO NOT provide any updates!
LG I will never buy your products ever again, Samsung is way better although sometimes delay their updates but at least they do eventually AND LG LOCKED THEIR BOOTLOADER AND NEVER UPDATE What a joke!
