LG "G" Point "G" is probably associated with a woman's intimate area!

So, if Samsung owns the Galaxies,
the LG " G "owns the Globe/global,
and Sony xperia ZU = Universe,
and nokia Lullaby,
and the hTc T6 = total recall. .. nice!!!;-)

So it'll be called the LG G2? Hmm, it sounds funny to say it out loud. But I do like the compactness of the name.
I imagine somewhere down the line we might see a 'Samsung Galaxy Stellar Win Active Zoom 3"

The name "Optimus" should never be relegated to low/mid-range fields.
Optimus had the touch, he had the powerrrrrrr!

Lg go update your phones, the 2012 flagship optimus g is pretty much dead.

Agreed. All the raw spec firepower are rendered useless w/ locked boatloaders, lacking dev support and slower than slow official updates.

They could resurrect the Goldstar name. I have fond memories of my Goldstar...CD-R Drive.

"Optimus G" is good, get rid the "LG" in front of it.
LG= LIFE IS GOOD. .. IF YOU KNOW HOW TO UPDATE YOUR PREVIOUS PHONES NOT ONLY THE NEXUS 4. You just know how to make new one, but forgot to upgrade/support the old one, that waiting somewhere in the dark.
By the way, How's your new "Optimus G Pro", I barely read a news about it. .. it is going to the dark side too!???

I thought Optimus G Pro is the killer competitor to gnote 2, what happened now ? " your product is good but... we need update ".

I've owned more LG phones than any other brand. They had great built quality and electronics. Haven't seriously considered an LG smartphone because Verizon insists on using proprietary branding like Spectrum and Lucid. I'd look at a G if it were left untouched by the carrier.
