Because it is easier than search for it at the last moment.

I have low expectations for this phone. LG can prove me wrong, but they haven't released anything worthy of a good smartphone except the Nexus 4.

well..this might actually be a good start:P

Hmmm. I think the Optimus G which the Nexus 4 was based on actually was where they got it right. The Optimus G was a sweet looking and performing phone.

I'm not sure whats going to be different from this phone versus the LG Optimus G Pro. Both are 1080p, but one is 5.5" display the G2 is going to be a 5.2" (higher ppi). The G Pro actually has a 3,100+ mAH battery and I think this phone only will have a 2,510 or 2,600 battery, so thats not as good. The volume button is on the back near the camera...I don't see how that is "evolutionary". Also I think both will have a 13 MP camera and 1080p video. The only big differnce is that the H Pro has a Snapdragon 600 processor, where this phone will have a 800. It just seems to me that LG wanted to do a "one up" on Samsung and release a Snapdragon 800 processor because they knew the GS4 would only have a 600 processor. (Now it looks like Samsung is going to be realeasing a SG4 variance with a Snapdragon 800 processor) I just fail to see the BIG difference between this phone and the G Pro....but, I'll have to wait and watch :-)

The CEO's accent is really thick but at least he tries.

Amazing flagship with amazing features. So, Moto X is similar to it...

LG G2 > Moto X.
I'm not fully sold to the phone but from the livestream, there's no way the Moto X is better.
