All of LG's ads are very similar to samsung's "designed for human" ads . . . hmmm

If it works, why fight it I guess. I think LG's software gimmicks are more compelling than Samsung's, but only just.

But they're way to similar. I think they should look for their own design and approach so people don't get confused.

LG has always copyed Samsung, LG does make the best 1440p IPS displays though.

LG just didn't know what to do when Android started taking over. They were still focused on making quality featurephones. I've always preferred LG construction over Samsung and had nothing but problems with Samsung's electronics.

Yeah, and if you read the whole history of the touchscreen smartphone, it's

LG (Optimus, G2) copies Samsung (Galaxy S), who copied Apple (iPhone), who copied LG (Prada) or possibly Sony prototypes.

There's nothing new under the sun, so just pick the hardware and software that works for you.

Actually Samsung copycats LG first by stolen Amoled technology from LG.

So so funny. Copy copy copy. That is a parrot's word. But everyone is parroting that word 'Copy"

I believe that word originated with "Apple" did it not ?

Depends on if you want a phablet, which, the G2 is not. So the Note 3 might beat the LG Optimus G Pro (which beat the Note 2) but not the G2. But you\'re right, let\'s not make this a fan war.

but then again he (special4u) said "samsung".. that's mean including the note 3... the word samsung means every phone that samsung made if you clever enough to understand.. btw you just start the fan war boy..

It can be taken either way, noob. Obviously you \'90\'s babies weren\'t taught to read between the lines.

I'm sorry, but a copycat of a product deserves NO CREDIT. Optimus G pro was identical to the note series thereby rendering it moot as being "better". Unless of course u have no morals :)

note 3 isnt a phone even .. do u really think that it got the look which we can call "phone" ? no way .. its phablet or tab i guess .. way hard to use as a mobile phone ..samsung just making chaos on mobile industry .. making un nessesaraly big displays .. its good to make good tabs now and then.. i think samsung should give their best piority on the disignes and materials ..

lolwut?

It sold 10mill.. clearly there's a market for it. I suggest you stick to your 4" iToy while the rest of us enjoy our multimedia and productivity tools.

I was very close to purchasing this device. The deal fell through due to lack of removable battery. Sorry LG.

Congratulations Samsung S4 for getting my business for the next two years.

In my opinion, removable battery is considered functionality. How can my phone function for me if it is laid up in a service center due to battery issue that I should be able to rectify myself on the fly.

A lot of people still need/want a removable battery, and that\'s their choice. Unfortunately in the US market, the Galaxy line is the lone holdout. HTC, Motorola, Nokia, and now LG have chosen sealed construction. I don\'t think it should be a dealbreaker as long as the batteries hold up for 2 years. I would hope battery tech has improved, but for those who must have a battery door, I hope you like TouchWiz.

As I stated in an earlier post , the removable battery is on its way of the dinasour. Soon Samsung will go the way of the others and put in non-removable batterier. But one thing all manufacturers should do is put in at leasdt 64 gb of storage and do away with the 16 gb altogether.

To each his own, but the only reason your deal breaker comment makes sense is if you were planning on getting an extended battery. There are button commands that are equivalent to soft resets (battery pulls) & unless your device was totally dead, you wouldn\'t be without it at a service center because you keep your phone until your replacement comes in. Maybe that\'s just my opinion because I work in wireless.

And those extended batteries have historically been lumpy bricks. Or you buy a second standard battery and carry that around with you and change it partway through the day, which seems inconvenient to me. Or you do like I'm planning and buy a new phone with a 3000+ mAh battery like the Droid Maxx and G2.
