Right. I can't believe they didn't think that pesky GSMArena logo wouldn't get in the way.

If you look at the words 'not for sale', they don't seem to sit at the correct angle as the face of the phone at the bottom right corner.

Then notice from the front, the upper edge above the earpiece is almost flat yet when you look at the back, there is a significant rounded arc top edge.

Something doesn't add up. In any case, the G3 isn't making my G2 quake in it's boots just yet. And yes, I have the gold G2.

Love the contrast between the big black screen and the tight bezel.

I dont comment looks often or ever since everyone has their own taste, but I must say this looks much better than the bandaid that Samsung released. Hopefully they work the front of this, because it looks weird with just gold down below and nothing on the side or top.

5.5inch that's to big for others

5inch and 4.5inch is perfect

Ladies and young girls who like iPhones will never buy this big phone

dont worry my lady friends are using note3 , galaxy mega etc. so for the ladies its not problem. for those who likes iphone, they never change iphone for other phone whatever it offers... so your argument is invalid

What are you talking about ??! I've never seen a man with those big 5.2inch+ phones, but ladies with bags are usually using Galaxy Mega or One Max. There is no problem for them to put it back into bag, while we have a problem where to put this thing...

Its an extra colour so why not? Its a very desirable colour in some asian and arabic countries. Tacky for you might be amazing for someone else.

I'll pay extra to NOT get the gold one!

And yeah, why couldn't they keep the speaker on the bottom? Frankly I'd take an increase in thickness if they could put the speakers behind the screen facing forward, like some TVs do these days. When I play games I like the sound pointing at ME, not the rest of the room.

Plastic of course, LG CEO made a statement some time ago that they wont be making any metallic phones any time soon. They love using cheap looking plastic like Samsung does for some reason. My G2 when you would squeeze it little bit it would make horrible noises and looked plain cheap.

Isn't it great that when ever Apple does something, the rest of the industry follow?

When those old phones from early 2000s were gold, you didn't see everyone else releasing gold phones.

Once Apple released the Gold 5s, EVERYONE is doing it now. LOOOOOOOOOOOOL

And the giant Motorola phones of yesteryear were used to manage gold mines and coordinate the transport of gold long ago as well. You could find real gold dust on some of the used ones.
