LG confirms that the Optimus G unibody sports a glass back with patented "Crystal Reflection" design

0. phoneArena 30 Aug 2012, 05:19 posted on

We asked LG for clarification what exactly is the material that the back of the upcoming Optimus G monster is made of, as we couldn't believe our eyes when we read glass in the press release, and it turned out to be indeed the case...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

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

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

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...

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

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

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.
