LG confirms that the Optimus G unibody sports a glass back with patented "Crystal Reflection" design
Since premium materials in Android phone design are few and far between, we have to hand it to LG for trying to break that trend, and introduce not only a handset crafted with a glass-made back, but grace it with a crystal pattern to help your grip, and add to the attractiveness of its looks. As for the camera module being made in-house by LG Innotek, instead of stalwarts like Sony or OmniVision, we'd have to wait and see what LG has done first, since this is the area its flagships need the most improvement.

Lg's design are always nice just that their updates and ui sucks .

Their most recent UX is actually very, very, good. You still must be thinking about that 2011 iPhone ripoff UX that was buggy and stuff.

Now days, when someone says UX describing a mobile device i think of TW UX on Samsung.

I find their UI nostalgic and I kinda like that. It has functionality we need and then some.

Actually, I don't like LG Optimus 4X HD design. But agree, there is some not bad looking LG smartphones.

I think the 4X looks kinda like a Galaxy s2 , which looks kinda nice . Only have more neat looking capacitive buttons and larger

In my opinion Samsung Galaxy S II looks better than LG Optimus 4X HD. :)

You know something, I am going to keep a CLOSE eye on this phone. LG has never been on my radar but this phone actually has everything. POWER, SPEED, & BEAUTY all in one VERY sexy shell.
I have to say LG has got my attention, just deliver & you might have MILLIONS of very happy & SATESFIED customers worldwide.

Nowadays people are very naive and think they know everything... Stop spaming over the internet... Apple sues Samsung because the sales of there high-end smartphones, tablets and even phablets are interrupting Apple's sales in the US!!!

lol I know, Apple is going to say...."GLASS?!?!?!?" "No one can use GLASS. We patented GLASS. The only people who can use GLASS are the bottle makers & Window makers. THAT IS IT!!!!!" lol

LOL! Then Apple will have to sue a mother nature because even lightning can create a glass.

Can I be paid to be the lawyer who represents mother nature? lol

Does LG supply parts to Apple? If they do, expect a lawsuit so Apple can get discounted pricing.

LG makes their screens lol. the most expensive part~
27. IliyaBeshkov posted on 30 Aug 2012, 08:52 0 0
Even Samsung and Sony are manufacturing the processor(Samsung) and the camera (Sony) for Apple !!

lol, So it's bedazzled...with glass??? Ok, what ever you say LG.
5. Berzerk000 posted on 30 Aug 2012, 05:54 4 0
Didn't expect this. I expected plastic, but nope, sparkly glass AND unibody design... Kind of screams iPhone, but since they registered the patent I guess it's alright. Let's just hope it isn't as fragile...

Thank you for sparing us another ridiculous lawsuit.

LG's own camera module, eh??? Being pessimistic, i don't think it will do well just yet...
Hm....just worried about the price!!

I think its a nice change, sick of holding a plastic phone from every carrier besides crap apple.
12. ph00ny posted on 30 Aug 2012, 06:41 0 0
Sadly, my iphone 4s is wrapped around in a mophie battery case so that not so crappy glass doesn't break when i drop it and it gives me the extra battery i need to get through the entire day

Hmmmm,, I wonder how it feels :-) ... but will it blend?

I have to admit, this is the first time LG has my attention. Can't wait for this product review
24. redmd posted on 30 Aug 2012, 08:37 0 0
It will have a premium feel but I worry about the battery life because this might mean non removable battery.

Good to see LG giving so much focus to the designs, but I'm pretty sure anyone who'd get such an amazing(and expensive) phone would want to protect it to the best of their ability.
Unless that phone has some serious ruggedness to go along with its looks, that back is likely going to be covered under a protective case ):

Now this is real design patenting. A unique and never before seen styled glass backing on a device. Stuff like this deserves a patent, not a rectangle with rounded corners. I'm looking forward to seeing this in person. From the description and teaser pic, it looks good.
