LG one-ups Galaxy S 4 ads, reminds the Optimus G is ‘here 4 you now’

LG one-ups Galaxy S 4 ads, reminds the Optimus G is ‘here 4 you now’
LG has had its notable presence in Times Square for nearly 20 years, and it definitely wasn’t happy to see Samsung put its Galaxy S 4 ads right under its own spot. Understandably, it has quickly reacted changing the billboards to upstage the Galaxy S 4 ads.

LG’s ads are slightly bigger and in a blow to Samsung remind watchers that unlike the not-yet-launched S 4, the Optimus G is ‘here 4 you now.’

LG’s billboards are both higher and brighter than Samsung’s and LG’s second message is also a little jab at Samsung saying "It'll take more than 4 to equal one LG Optimus G."

Take a look at what that little billboard war looks like now.

that same old junk, will be the best android device this year, don't tell me HTC or Sony or whatever, the galaxy wins the battle every year, GS2 and Sensation, GS3 and One X, and also GS4 and One... whether you like it or not.

even though the One is completely different, logic still says that GS4 will sell better

It's hliarious. The G Pro looks EXACTLY like the Note II, it's size and battery is exactly like the Note II's, it has similar system sounds like the Note II, similar multi-view function like the Note II, similar eye-tracking soon introduced like in the Note II, handwriting recognition (without sylus) like in the Note II, similar beam functions like in the Note II, similar cover like the Note II's with a similar name (Quick Cover :D ). The series copies the Name Letter Number system too (Optimus G / G2 / G Pro (like S Plus) and now they are copying ads.

I guess Samsung reached Apple's status after all. :D

It really isn't. All ppl. see is another giant "4" on the very day the "Galaxy S4" will be revealed, therefore psychologically they will associate that with the Samsung device (they will be brainwashed with the name S4)

It's cheeky and well played by LG and I like them giving Samsung it's own medicine (Samsung ads upon BB10 launch), but it's just another "4" sign when a product with a "4" is released, free advertisement for Samsung.

Now if LG said "In B4 the next plastic thing" or something, now THAT would've been hilarious!

Lg Optimus G is a industry JOKE with piss poor battery life a LG trait in all it's products. Lg Nexus 4 also has poor battery life compared to the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2. Lg needs to focus on it's pitiful standing in the android landscape no matter how much Google tries to help them LG sales are comical at best. Samsung sold 213 million Galaxy S3's and Galaxy Note 2's in 2012 that's 40% market share and the closest android manufacturer to Samsung is Hauwei at 6% market share. Guess LG is below 6% how is that a possible threat to Samsung????. Can't help but laugh LG is a industry JOKE looking for attention copying Samsung and praying something sticks. True android users will never buy LG we already know they are useless.

And please bring that wanna be Lg Optimus G pro to the states so we can laugh at the wanna be Galaxy Note 2. Samsung is the creators of this category not the pretenders chasing. The Galaxy Note 2 is the BEST ultimate all purpose productivity device ever made since the inception of android period no device on the market today compares. The Galaxy Note 3 will be the only thing that will beat it. The Lg Optimus G pro is nothing more than a large screen phone nice try thou.
