LG to take the wraps off of its beast on September 19th?
Samsung Galaxy S III, and some of the specs show that LG has succeeded, at least on paper. The LG Optimus G has 2GB of RAM, something seen on the stateside version of the Samsung Galaxy S III. And don't forget that the U.S. Samsung Galaxy S III models (outside of the T-Mobile model) have LTE connectivity but no quad-core processor. My oh my, has LG come a long way since its first U.S. sold smartphone, the LG INCITE.
Verizon customers could be getting excited as a version of the phone named the LG Optimus Blaze is allegedly heading to Big Red. On the 19th, we should find out more information on launch dates, price, specs and more. If the display really does make it look like the images on the screen are floating under your finger, LG could have the beginning of the franchise model that they so desperately need to compete with those top-shelf models that get updated every year like the Apple iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy S line.

Yes, it is. However this phone will be better than the iPhone 5.

Oh you mean tired ole iphone?? And they say they inovate hahahaha!!!!! only those blind isheep buy the iphones same old design and technology year after year. They won't sell any on Verizon cause the morons didn't put an antenna on the phone that lets you do voice and data simultaneously!!!! haha losers :)

I thought like that about the Optimus 2X, and i bought it, must i say LG sucks at updating their devices. My Optimus 2X still hasn't got ICS and it was one of LG's flagship devices last year.

Carriers are a big part of why phones aren't updated. ICS would probably be on the Spectrum by now if it weren't for Big Red, the Nitro on AT&T is practically the same phone and it's had it for a couple of months now. In fact every Optimus LTE has it but the Spectrum.

Yep the nitro got it pretty quick.. And I actually like the UI on the ics update.

I started to gain respect for LG after the announcement of the LG Optimus 4X HD. I really cant wait for this phone!!! Go LG Go!!!

Its a phone costs more than high end laptop. specially designed for people who don't know how to waste their money.

I would've put this, but sadly, most of the awesome stuff that Oppo makes never comes to US market.
32. The_Innovation (Posts: 599; Member since: 18 Jul 2012)
Nexus a month later? Double You Tea Eff man? You sure Nexus is being announced that late?

I can't wait to put this on a nice little unlimited data plan for Sprint. Quad core, with that screen? You'd be disappointed in buying anything else of the same price.

From the above comments, PhoneArena must review its biased behavior in favor of apple. last 2 days I thought I was logging to iphone forum not phonearena :(.
26. jibraihimi (Posts: 739; Member since: 29 Nov 2011)
Yes LG bring it on, Team iPhone is dying to see what innovation really means................ :)
27. cristhiansaid (Posts: 30; Member since: 25 Jun 2010)
is that is the design of LG, I dont like :/
31. thunder18 (Posts: 124; Member since: 06 Aug 2009)
Does anyone else think there's a slight possibility the "G" in the Optimus G moniker might indicate the phone will be a bone stock Google device. Kind of an LG version of the Galaxy series? Probably just wishful thinking on my part, but I'm allowed to dream right?
35. u-suck-more (Posts: 529; Member since: 26 Aug 2011)
lol they alr said it runs the Optimus UI 3.0
