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

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.

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

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 ?

nope, the Note 3 beats it, you know it, so let's not make this a fan war

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..

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 ..

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.

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.

Yes. A lot of people do need and want a removable battery. In fact, numerous polls have more than 50% want or need removable batteries. That is a significant consumer market that manufacturers seem to want to ignore.

My question to you is: What harm is being done to you to have a removable battery? It has never been an issue for over 30 years in phones.The manufacturer excuse is lame.They lay claim that they can make batteries a different design or shape to conform to slimmer body hardware. Yet, Samsung has been able to obtain slimmer bodies than most of its competitors without sacrificing access to batteries.

Since my job requires me to work around batteries, I can vouch that batteries are still a high failure rate. If I had one phone in my twenty seven years of owning them, where the batteries didn\\\'t show signs of significant degradation in holding a charge within two year contracts, I might(and I use that term Might loosely), retune my thinking.

My wife has had TouchWiz on both her previous phones while I have used Sense on my HTCs. I personally don\\\'t get the hate on both these UIs. I like function and accessibility. I like having control over the simplest of items.Removable SD Cards and Batteries is consumer control. Eliminating these features is Manufacturer Control. I will always opt for consumer control. That is what my generation had fought for. This generation seems to accept anything that looks good on the surface yet most always placates manufacturer response to controlling additional revenue and dollars. Afterall, That is the reason for trying to groom the consumers into uncompromising positions. How much money do the battery manufactures or carrier service centers stand to make by forcing consumers into service centers for stupid battery failures? Batteries are prone tro swell and lose considerable charge after 12-18 months of use. Ironic that this happens outside of manufacturer warranty yet within contract periods. Who pays for this?

It not only happens, it happens more frequently than many would like to believe. Most tech geeks consistently and more frequently trade their phones up bypassing these possible issues. But, I can assure you my friend, it is real and it is quite annoying being caught in the middle of nowhere with a dead phone due to shorted batteries.Slipping in a backup battery quickly fixes the issue. Current phones are not immune to shorted batteries. All the resets in the world don\'t fix these issues. Next time screens flicker, go blank or the device just seems to power off even while reading half a charge left, First go to check point is the battery. 85% of the time, Consumers can fix this by replacing the old battery and avoiding filing a needless insurance claim.

I won\'t let experience be overshadowed by savvy marketing.
