Of course it's coming with ice cream sandwich while Samsung is releasing the Galaxy Note 2 with jellybean straight out the box and 3100mAh battery on the 1.6 Quadcore Exynos 4412 processor. Sorry LG you still seem to be real weak in the day to day world of technology.

Not sure if ICS problem or not, but gsmarena just posted a hands on video. With that beast of specs, SWITCHING THE ORIENTATION IN STILL LAGGING. Everything is right about this phone (aside from design), but its LG :(

Spec wise it is a monster....

Too bad it looks so bad. Yeah, I said it, it looks like crap. Sparkly phones are for little girls. No little girl cares about the cpu or RAM. Should have made a geek phone look tech and make the Facebook Phone sparkle.

No chance I purchase one. Can't wait till someone else matches these specs though.

Even TI admitted that OMAP5 is going to be a price-costly SoC... :(

bring it on! remember the OMAP is still Google's Reference Platform.

Look how saturated the hands are, the camera taking the shot wasn't that good, or had the settings off.

well everything else was probably taken with a different camera other than the one in the LG phone......but the screen on the LG looks a tad bit yellowish if you look at it closely....

Sheeh. I feel guilty for getting my Nexus 2 months ago now.. Too many options coming out now!

15. No_Nonsense (Posts: 826; Member since: 17 Aug 2012)


You should not. There will be more options and better technology with time. It doesn't mean we should put of our purchases for that something better. Today's flagships will be dwarfed by H1 2013's which will be again ridiculed by those of H2 2013 and so on. On a side note, however, what is Nexus 2?

By "nexus 2 months ago" he means he bought the current galaxy nexus - two months ago.

Nice to see companies try to make multi tasking better or focus on it more.

Now THIS....is what you call innovation......stepping the game up. Not calling no names...lol.

Making improvements to an existing technology is not really "innovation."

This thing is a beast, but I still don't enjoy LG's UI. Also, the Crystal Reflection finish makes it look bedazzled...

I did think the GS3 was a lil too long n wide. I might have to just accept it with this phone.

I like the design, the back side I guess is to Motorola Kevlar.

take note you guys because this is the first time in the history of owning Android Smartphones that your King actually wants another Comapny's phone more than the newest, cutting edge Motorola. this is at the top of my list right now and will probably be the phone i get unless there's an OMAP5 or S4 Pro powered Motorola Nexus around the corner or it's too expensive because i am buying off contract now.

It sure is a beast but one giant flaw is the lack of expandable storage. It's highly puzzling why you would make a phone so powerful, but not allow microSD.

But LG is not good at updates (international itself,no updates for carrier specific.

This is awesome. The cross-tasking feature is incredible and much better executed than what Samsung did with the SG3

It's an Android device with great specs. It doesn't really need great software to work properly.
