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

0. phoneArena 14 Mar 2013, 03:40 posted on

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…

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.

LG Phones are now BECOME the BEST & AFFORDABLE !

Optimus G & G PRO for a high end Flagship,

F7(LTE3) for high Mid range Phone

L -II Series for Mig range phone

Ok....they're copying eye tracking....and yet it might not even launch with the GS4.

Article on here today about a company doing eye tracking software about to be made available to Android and iOS.

Seems like Sammy doesnt have the market cornered on that feature.

Samsung is number #1 for a reason and even though LG and Samsung are both Korean, LG's technology, innovation and originality pale in comparison. LG has a reason to be scared. If anything, I appreciate how HTC manages to take the high road and avoid pety marketing strategies like Nokia, Apple, and now LG. I hope HTC does well this year, but no matter what, Samsung will steal the show. :D

The Sony Xperia Z costs about 100 bucks more than the HTC One even though feature-wise, Sony compromised some.specs for the durability.

@chupoltorero Yeah, I suppose that they could put alittle more effort into their marketing. But I do recall seeing a commercial they made for the HTC J Butterfly for China. Instead of flaunting all the specs or making things seem too complicated for the average user to comprehend, they made it so that people could see the practical use of a high end cell phone in a every day basis, yet made it seem intuitive, even the folks here in @phonearena really enjoyed it. HTC deserves to be 2nd only to Samsung, I feel that they've done more than just deserve it. Hopefully this year goes well for them, they always have overall good handsets with a premium feel, just that again, poor marketing in the states.
