The majority of people don't care that much the replaceable battery, it's the brand LG that is turning people away. Remember the Optimus 2x, the 4x, the optimus G, and the G Pro? They all had much hype and how they are gonna be the start of the downfall of Samsung, and they turned out to be a bug @$$ flopp. I had the 2x, it was nice the 1st couple of weeks but then it became as laggy as the ios7. And I waited and waited for the ics 4.0 and after year and a half it turned out to be as laggy as the 3.2 gb. Then I wanted to give them another chance and got myself the 4x, sexy phone, but washed out screen, pooooor battery life, and again after a while it became as slow as the 2x. Sold it and got the S3. But when the Optimus G was released I was too close to getting one, but after less than a month after they released it, LG started talking about their next flagship and that it is coming shortly, they didn't give the G the needes time to succeed, so I kept my s3 and got the note 2, then S4 and now the Note3 instead. Samsung is the only android company that updated its 2012 models with 4.3, and gsmarena stated that they are working on updating their mid range models since 4.4 works flawlessly on 0.5 ram processors.
Don't be a troll, you are just a number for all the companies out there. When you pay 600$ on a phone, don't buy because of your love to a brand, cuz you will get screwed real bad.

Android is winning the marketshare race? Not the case at all, this is a Samsung and Apple world. Nothing else matters...

That tiny ROM and back button, the optimus g is better in design,except the front,in my opinion.

Is a decline in overall smartphone market..Samsung just announced a decrease of 8%. However g2 is an excellent product.

I actually think that sales of the lg g2 will dramatically pick up as Christmas nears. I see more and more people in the gadget stores getting a G2 for Christmas. They just waited for the right moment to spend.

2.3Mil? I don't think so. It's better Phonearena check it directly with LG because Korean News also couldn't get exact information. Gpro was focused on Korean Market. and,was the best seller in Korea early this year. NOT LAST YEAR!. If G2 was sold more than Gpro. then,it's not bad because korean market at 3rd quarter was declined by marketing regulation. you can check how many S4 & Note 3 Sold.

It's all about marketing. People buy what they are told to buy. This is the best phone on the American market next to the note. But many do not even realized it bc it hasn't been shoved down our throat. People actually think the s4 is the best phone of 2013, this is bc it's been marketed very well, and people are too lazy to do their homework.
