How can you guys say it's not all about specs when all we see and read here are specs on this device and the others, then we see comparisons of specs between devices. The majority of us users ask for removable batteries, SD card slots and why the heck would we go backwards in the installed radios?

You do realize that was the author who said that, and he has a reputation of being an Apple apologist?

Now, it's the rest of us who can't stop laughing.

sure it is

IPS 720p HD screen
Krait Quad with Adreno 320
2 gigs of ram
google direct updates
NFC
induction charging
360 panoramic camera
$350 full price.
HSPA+ 21/42

Anyone whining after that is stupid.

-720p screen how is that a feature on a phone?
-2 gigs of ram? every high end device Android have that now.
- induction charging will take longer and doubt anyone will love these feature.
-HSPA+ really on a 4G LTE even prepaid has LTE now.

Let's be honest the only innovation here is the 350 price tag.... don't be fooled

and the iphone doesn't have those features. Everyone knows Apple is now secretly envying Android. Congratulations on the new notification pull down adding some WIDGETS in there too, panorama finally! as well as LTE, and wow a new map application with turn by turn navigation!! total innovation and wait for it... wait for it...

a screen that finally surpassed the 3.5" "sweet spot"!

Future, apple is going to make their screens even larger and implement quad core, and more android features to make their platform "better". Perhaps maybe even live wallpapers is next? Windows definitely thought that was a good idea already. Perhaps apple will also take note of some of the android handset devices and make phones that do not have the "patented rectangular shape with round corners."

I was talking about Android here you want to talk about Apple go to an Apple article.. but since you had nothing smart to say on this article you did the only thing you could do bash Apple

really, the 720p HD IPS LCD screen isnt a feature? So, the lower resolution but same tech on the i5 is a "Feature" but its higher resolution brother is not? lol.

2 gigs of ram. Name 5 smart phones sold in the US with 2 gigs of ram.

If they made a car dash port of that, I'd buy it. sleek charger while using GPS.

HSPA+ 42mb is the same speed as LTE in real life testing. National test after national test has proven it. Werent you the same guy that said LTE wasnt needed when the i4s passed it up? lol.
HSPA+ is in more areas world wide by far, and it uses less battery.

ohh remix the States always gets everything late top tier Android phones have 2 gig of ram not in the States of course, here there is a T-Mo carrier that passes HSPA+ as 4G and because that is false they will start their own 4G LTE

you mean that "fake 4g" that is just as fast or faster than VZW in country wide tests?

you do realize that "4g" is any tech that can go 14.4mb/s and faster.

the only fake 4g is Wimax and that "4g" that the i4s tried to pretend it had..

HSPA+ that rivals top dog network speeds...best price plans in the industry. Top tier devices. Then why the hell is T-Mobile such a sinking ship? I'd think with that equation they would be leading.

That's why I posted that comment, because the only reason you would have to come to an android article is to do the exact same thing you claim that I am doing, ye dumb hypocrite.

2gigs of ram+quad core cpu is still a rarity
nobody will like wireless charging- are u 1 of them who were hailing apple to bring about this thing, so that it can be told to the world how good it is
lte was tried on the previous nexus, and the reason to scrap it off was explained too

The Optimus G will be released by carriers, and will have those LTE bands, etc...

54. Ravail (Posts: 182; Member since: 14 Oct 2011)


The reason i chose the AT&T branded LG Optimus G, is due to it has LTE and a Micro Sd card slot, due to me having more than 16gb worth of media.

Why cheap? The iPhone was made out of glass and it was "premium" there is no unlocked LTE phone or even HSPA phone that beats the price in that matter. But what you say it true?

It Has wireless charging
It has NFC sharing capabilities
It has a true HD screen
It has the most powerful processor on earth
It has two gigs of ram
It has improved awesome features instead of copied features and gimics
It still nice to the hand thiner and lighter than its predecessor

I don't know why you need any of those three items. Don't you have a computer or an external hard drive at home to store all your stuff? Why do you need to replace the battery for?

tell you what, go enjoy your crappy skinned phones with a 1 year time span. leave the Android purists alone. HSPA+ is fast enough without being a battery drainer, non-replaceable battery is a reality except for Samsung devices, and SD card while a loss but it will never happen in Nexus devices so get over yourself and don't come here whining about slow updates or buggy ones.
