I think the Sprint Optimus G looks better than the AT&T version.

Not only that, but it's got the 8mp camera which every review I've read produces a somewhat better picture than the 13mp version (which Sprint uses).

All this phone needs is an upgrade to Android 4.2.

If the Optimus G can easily get ports from the Nexus 4, it'll be on the bleeding edge of Android versions, whether AT&T wants it to be or not.

These Phones must also complete with the Nexus 4

Xperia TL VS Nexus 4 - Nexus 4 Win

Optimus G VS Nexus 4 - Nexus 4 Win (Due to cost)

Xperia looks like a better deal and those that want to purchase Optimus G i suggest buying a LG Nexus 4 unlocked and use it on AT&T

The Nexus 4 is unsubsidized and you will only lose money compared to the Optimus G. If the Optimus G gets ported development from the Nexus 4, get the Optimus G. The microSD slot is completely worth signing away your soul for two years.

It doesn't matter what you think. AT&T will ALWAYS make money off of your monthly bill whether you get a subsidized phone or not. They don't make your bill cheaper if you bring your own device, they just pocket that money as pure profit.

So basically you'll pay an extra 100 USD for stock Android, with no other advantage compared to the AT&T Optimus G. And the AT&T version adds a microSD slot.

Hence the point. If the AT&T Optimus G can easily get ports from the Nexus 4, there is no point to getting a Nexus 4, unless you feel the need to show off to someone that you paid more money for a name that no one but phone geeks will care about.

Care to elucidate your arguments?

Hmmm I would take the LG G... I want flagship not mid... I'll pay more. Sony needs to step it up if they want me to buy their phones, they have the design but fall short of being current
