When was the last time that you can remember an LG phone getting such a buzz? The LG Voyager, perhaps? That featurephone was a wannabe back in the days when any touchscreen model with a roughly 3 inch screen could be an "iPhone killer". This time, the buzz is more global and isn't misguided. The LG Optimus G has been cleverly and carefully constructed using new features developed by LG's own subsidiaries. It's a great idea and allows LG to have the whole company involved in making parts for the phone. Not only should this help bring down the costs of developing the phone (and thus the retail price), it also assures LG that it will have necessary parts when needed.
As commercials go, let's just say that this spot could have used a barista or two and there seems to be nothing that really lets the world know what the LG Optimus G has in the way of specs. That is unless a man playing guitar underwater is the international sign for a quad-core processor.
With the buzz that the LG Optimus G has been able to amass, it will be interesting to see if LG has the international hit on its hands that it has been yearning for.
This was reported on the NFC World site on September 5, 2012: Unveiled by LG in August 2012, the Optimus G is being released in Japan and Korea in September 2012. The smartphone will boast a 4.7-inch screen, 1.5GHz quad-core processor, LTE, NFC and will be running Android 4.0 which is expected to be upgraded to Android 4.1 after release.
Yeah !! Cz I'm the joker of the year !! Thank you for putting me on that place !! Just throw your likes at somewhere else and face to real and see the real .. Cz isn't apple did this to mobile device history !! Isnt Samsung change their mobiles once they saw original iPhone in 2007 ? Didn't they made tab after the 1st iPad ??? So what else you, mad screamer !! what is your current device ? It's iphone4 that's mine !! And today it's 2 year b'day !! I love this like hell,, cz the iPhone 4 is a phone what do it says !!
My phone is the phone shown in my profile avatar lol.
LG/Sharp make the screen for your iPhone and iPad
Sony makes the cameras for your iPhone and iPad
Samsung makes the chips for your iPhone and iPad
In fact Sony had so many phone design on the drawing boards which Apple was inspired by and used. You need to do homework before throwing such stuff out. It's not about who did what first, it's a fact that Android puts iOS to shame, in every aspect.
Oh is it !! Now I got the reason that's y u screaming like hell on against apple iPhone !! Cz u using Samsung nexus !! Well can you stay with it like 1 & half years ??? Nope I don't think so.. Cz they are just for short terms of periods .. They gonna make some system crashes .. Ok !! Here are the answers to your points what u uncurtain on my comment.. The samsungs chip - their making it the way apple wants it.. It's not that apple buying Samsung product ... It's their business .. And the displays ?? They giving the order how they want it. And they making those the way apple wants.. And what else buddy !! Have you ever try on apple ? No or yeah ? Apple just designing and innovated the iPhone .. Is Samsung making all the things what included in their phones... Innovation is the most important buddy. Otherwise there is no sgs1,2,3 so if u love Samsung u must thank on apple iPhone . Isn't that true?like very simple example- we are still thanking to mr. A.grahembell cz of he inventioned the phone. So u better think twice b4 splitting out some hillariouse comments on my posts.. \m/
Well thank you man .. Maybe that I'm a man who living in stereotypic life.. But if that stereotyped the best thing or best way , I think it's always better to stay in it than get moving for new cheap ways ...
u have to be bit more open minded. if you are a 13 or 14 yr old its ok...thats the time period that you believe what you do and what you have is the best and become rather arrogant when there is convincing evidence that you are wrong.
use an android device...newer one with good specs and see the difference. see what you have been missing.
Again....stop speaking if you don't know what you're saying. I've used the iPhone more than you.
I've had the very first iPhone, the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 3GS, the iPhone 4, and the iPhone 4S. I've had them all. I just got my Nexus 2 months ago. After using the iPhone for 5 years I realized I was being lied to and using old technology, believing it's new and innovative. It doesn't matter if they make it the way they want it. The point is whatever they make isn't that magical and innovative, BECAUSE IT'S MADE BY OTHERS! Can't you understand that? There's NOTHING special about it.
You think your iPhone isn't short term? Don't be such a iSheep man. Why does a new iPhone come out every year? Man my Nexus has technology that can keep up with the iPhone 5S and 6. The software is that advanced.
You're just a lost iSheep. Hey, I used to be one myself, and look, after LOGICAL and unbiased reviews, I now know that the real smart phones are the Android ones. Apple is for hipsters to brag, who really don't know what they're saying. Sort of like you with your psychopathic English. Here's a nice video for you.
It's not my problem if you saying its a pshycopethic English. I'm Sinhala and I learned British ... If you can let me know what makes it pshycopethic English for you. ok now tell me how could u say that u have use iPhone than me ?? It not matter bout used periods. It's bout talking the real .. Google nexus u wait and c what kind of failures will occurs that during your usage . I have xpirence with sg users.. Some of em not working properly even b4 1 year.. And your saying the opposite of my xpirence .. Okay here u stay with your nexus while um waiting for my iPhone 5 with my iPhone 4 ... Have a nice day ! LOL
machan, nice to meet a fellow countryman here. but you have to use a sgs 2 for couple of months and see the difference. ios is polished and eye candy, does the basic stuff, good looking phone. but android is far ahead in lots of aspects. and costs less. just ..take off your iphone mind set and be open to the available better alternative.
Oh nice to meet u buddy ! what's the point of you to call that android is best than iPhone ? Cz of android cheaper than iPhone ? Or what ? What made you to believe that android best than iPhone ? Tell me machang .
actually i really cant explain all that. just that u hv to use & see. i used an iphone 4s for couple of days. while it is very fluid & beautiful, i thought it lacked lots of things i enjoyed in android.
about the phone itself, i m not fond of smaller screens and built in memory without micro sim slots.
certainly the price is one big factor. iphones are more expensive not bcos they are better but because of the "apple" brand & their marketing strategy & the cult like status it has created. so that many people just follow the tide.
i m no tech guy, but the features i like in android & lacking in ios are the home screen, the widgets witch make most functions very easy & which show lots of info right there on the home screen, and the live wall papers. when you use it you get the idea that its more functional.
and the google play..true that app store is there but google play has more apps now. and android i basically google! . and google is what you rely on for any internet search, your mails..etc. way i see it android has more for consumers in the future. when cloud based storage & stuff becomes more & more popular & more functional.
and couple of things i really dont like about apple is their arrogant marketing strategies, how they sue everyone who pose a challenge, for their benefits. and the very poor social conditions the workers have to endure at foxconn, which is mainly due to apple. i wont buy an apple device for that reason alone.
ok..whatever said..its up to your personal preference at the end. people argue here all the time on this topic. but dont think no one agrees with the other or convinced by the counter arguments unless in a very rare situation.
nice to know you. bye.

listen jshan!!! i know that you are an apple fan and no matter what we say you are gonna stay that way, unless you give an android a try ofcourse. if you want to know what's better in android than iPhone than i can go on with the list for days!!! i too was an apple fan! but that was before i gave android a try. like 90% of the android fans used to iPhone fans but now that they have had some android experience they had to change their minds. you are pointlessly trying to defend apple. just because they introduced a better os system in its time that you should stick to it! if that's the case then shouldn't you support the company that introduced the world's first smartphone! its not about copying things from each other, if thats the case then iphone should not be allowed to do web browsing, have a camera, calendar or any such stuff because mobiles of the previous generations already had it. The reason i dont like apple anymore is that it does not pay much attention on improving its own device but focuses more on sueing others and cancelling their sales. if you think samsung is copying apple think about the notification bar. it originated in android first. and dont say that nexus will find glitches in its later updates. hav even had a look a ios 4 in iphone 3g. i dont even get that why would they update it to a software that a phone cant handle.
Note: samsung's sale did not increase after copying iphone. it increased after android's release.
Here's what iphone lacks:
2. file explorer
3. bluetooth connection with other cell phones
5. requires video conversion to watch on ios device
6. always require itunes to sync
7. smaller screen
8. less free apps on app store
9. different keyboards and fonts
10.different lock screens and what not!!!!
dont involve hacked iphone in it with cydia and stuff coz a rooted android is a real monster!!!
Ok dr android .. U telling me here that "Samsung increased their market not cz of iPhone but the android." right ?? But think buddy what leads to made an android !! How it came to world ?? I know u know bout that !! Google CEOs story !! "was in apple board for 4 years and then ......... "so what is the tag line for it ? They copied it and almost stolen by an apple !! It's bout android story !! Fine now this is bout SAMSUNG . Cz they copying at all .. Even the design ... Even in camera still image to vedio button .. Did you guys notice that I'm trying to bash HTC OR OTHER ANDROID BRANDS ?? nope right?? Cz their not copying em.. Even they using android with HTC SCENSE .. So they arent copying anyone. Only thing they also running their system on a "STOLEN PRODUCT" .. And tell me buddy how did you feel when u saw that "scloud" against the "iCloud" don't they have an any own ideas to even to give a name for new feature ??? That's what call copying buddy !! And I know 90% of peoples who using android now they were using the iPhone. Ok this isn't the reality buddy ?? I do not need to defend anything here .. I'm just wonderd why people trying to bash the iPhone like this much hate fully ?? It's like don't know how to splite out.. We all are buyers , customers , so we don't need to fight with anyone. I'm just telling cz some people are hating on iPhone .. If anyone loves smartphones , then atleast he shouldn't hate iPhone. "just shouldn't hate not should love " cz iPhone is the best and 1 st invention in smartphone history !! If you dare tell that is wrong !!! U hate or love iPhone u should agree with me.. C that's the thing that's the main thing that we having lots of kinda smartphones in the markets now.. And this is the method what it tells..
APPLE MADE IPHONE !! Then like said android came .. Even others doesn't have an idea that how to make smartphone they copied the way that used by an apple.. And now there is a market call android.. After all thos still everyone insulting and making fun on iPhone's new product .. Why is that ? Isn't that cz of others afraid of their market .. What ever it's up to u to choose what you gonna buy.. And the same for me ... I just xplained you. Cz u were trying to tell something bout android to me. Tell me if anything here what false not the truth ?
48.Dr.Android(Posts: 20; Member since: 06 Sep 2012)
we dont insult and make fun of iphone because of its market, its becuase of its arrogant attitude! it keeps sueing others and has stopped improving their own device! its like they are forcing people to buy their product by taking out the others. you can take a look at iphone 5 for instance, whats new in it??? a 4" screen?? There is no more excitement in iPhone anymore. they have stopped introducing new stuff anymore. even one of apple's fan said " oh so there's nothing new in iPhone 5. lets see what you copy now samsung?"
as far as icloud goes, microsoft introduced skydrive first! you can see that when ever android announces its update there is always some thing awesome that keeps the excitement growing in us. we are always anxious about apple, samsung, htc's flagship. but apple have stopped living upto our expectations. HTC's design's are way better than iPhone. its another thing that their market is not that good. can you believe that we wait a year for the new apple flagship and this is what we get. plus apple takes around 500% profit on its new releases. isnt that too much? apple fans are hesitating too much to give android a try. why dont you borrow an android flagship for a month and see the difference yourself. i did and it was too diffiucult to adjust to iPhone after that coz the ease of use on android is too much!
You think the iPhone does't break? You think it has no problems? Once again, here is what you FAIL to understand, again, and again, and again.
The parts in the iPhone, are made by other companies. The same companies who make parts for other phones, including Android ones. Do you understand that? If one can break, they all can. We live in an era that sells us quantity instead of quality. They make us change our phones every year, because they release a new one. No matter what you use, it's the same thing.
Ha huh !!! LOL !! I think u forgetting what you were telling earlier ,,, cz u said apple making by others cz of their buying parts from verious of companies .. And now u telling me that every phones parts making by same companies ,, then aren't they also making by others like ur earlier mentioned ,, not by an apple ?? Not by an Samsung ?? Not by an htc ?? Then part makers are the people's who making all smartphones huh ? U gotta be a joker man !! C'on man ....
Yes, I stand by what I said. But unlike Apple, others don't call their phones "The best thing that's ever happened", or, "The most advanced mobile operating system every." (even though Jelly Bean is). Apple makes it sound like they're unique and innovative, but they're far far far from it. Whatever they introduced in the iPhone 5, would have been innovative, in 2010.
You're useless and hopeless man. At least I tried both and made a decision. You're still stuck with your closed minded ways.
everyones here trying to give the best to their phones... It's not a bad habit .. So u stay with your best. And me too ... Cz u love android nexus .. And I love the iPhone 4 & 5 .. I'm looking to buy it once it reach our country.if any other smartphone comes to market with great features that i can feel then of course I will move to it. By the way man I like to get some idea bout android that over ios (iPhone)- can you tell me some .....
But other than that, I'll tell you why I personally love Android more.
1. It let's you set other apps as default. For instance, if I text you a link, and you press it, by default that link opens up in Safari on the iPhone, even if you have downloaded Chrome, or Opera. On an Android, I can set Chrome to be my default browser, so that no matter where I press a link, Chrome will open. I can also download a different texting app with better features, and use that as a default text every time I receive or send one.
2. It gives a maximum level of customization. I can move my icons anywhere and set them any way I want. They don't stack up in order. I can have one on the right corner, one on the bottom of it, and one on the left, leaving the middle blank, just because I want to. Also another example, I can change the colors of my text, the background color of the text, the bubble color, the size of the text, etc.
3. WIdgets widgets widgets. I can make a widget out of the WiFi button, or the Bluetooth button. Meaning I don't have to go into Settings and press WiFi "On". It's always on my home screen for me to press right away. (You can do this on the iPhone only if you Jailbreak, which you shouldn't have to). I can make a widget out of my alarm to simply press and it's on. I can put a calendar showing all the days of the month right on my home screen.
Those are just a few basic things. With the iPhone, they want it their way. They don't let you customize it the way you want it.
But buddy those are like pretty ordinary stuff what you mentioning here aren't they ? Screen widgets ? That thing you can do with Nokia n900 as well. ( in Nokia n sieries ) and wifi stuff u just need to set it on and let it b then once you revived wifi signal via any router u can select it and log trough it to the Internet !! (with apple)in iPhone also we can move our icons trough the display know.. Not like we wanted lie u mentioned ( but are they important ? ) do not misunderstand Can I ask your age ? Anything else ?? Do you believe that iPhones HDR photos ugly than your nexus ? Or do you believe your nexus holding a dazzle display than iPhone ? Do you believe that your nexus having solid rich quality look than iPhone 4 / 5 ? And do you know that iphone4 used to shoot some shots in the movie call AVENGERS "(the Hollywood blockbuster)(I know u know that ) so buddy think and get the idea which is the best ? -(here I'm not fighting with anyone , just trying to get the best )
Cz as smartphones they doesn't deserve it! I didn't compare Nokia with ios and android. I just wanted to prove that widget stuffs that's much of odinary even Nokias old devices too used to do that feature. And you call it that's one of reason to love android @ personally . ( that's y I asked bout ya age ? LOL ) so tell me some of good things more than advance that doesn't have in ios
Those things are very useful, to pretty much anyone. It's always basic features that people look for in their devices, and the iPhone lacks it. Most people DON'T EVEN KNOW that Android offers all this. All they know is the iPhone, that's it. If you watch that YouTube video I replied to you with you'll know exactly what I mean. iSheep. Dr. Android gave a pretty good list of features too that the iPhone doesn't have. But one more thing I'll add, Google Voice Search. Siri is a piece of s**t compared to this. No it doesn't have stupid useless answers telling you it loves you, but it's actually SMART. It talks to you directly telling you what you want to know. Also, almost all the search results from Siri, come from Google, which is ironic. Apple is stupid for trying to beat Google at their own game, search. It will never work.
Here YOUR NEXUS IS THE BEST !! And apple made iPhone once they saw your nexus ... Apple did copy Samsung !! Samsung Is the best ! I invention all these iOS made by copying ur android .. Fine !! Happy now ?? Have nice time with your nexus !!
if u really want to get the feeling, u have to use an android device for a couple of days. & u will see why those who know both ios & android prefer android.
there are many small details that make use of android so easy & very useful.
next time u go to liberty plaza, go to one of the phone shops, get hold of a sgs3 or the one x or even the sony xperia s, play for a while and see.
C'on buddy .. I have check till sgs2 .. I didn't take a look at sgs3 ( for the real ) but I don't c qualities over iPhone !! I didn't c the super quality display trough sgs (till 2 ) specially the retina display far more better than amoled display.. U can't c the pixels on retina but in amoled u will clearly c the pixels .. So can you tell that sgs2 display better than retina? I don't c that quality yet buddy if I c it I will move to it
thats why i said to check out sgs3 or the one x. they have better screens. and personally are you happy with the 3.5 inch screen of iphone? even the 4" screen of iphone 5 is small if you are used to a larger screen.
you may think the widgets is a basic function. maybe it is but it makes a lot of stuff easier.
and what about not having a micro sd slot? isnt it easier if u cud just take out the sd, insert it to another phone & get the stuff, rather than having to go through a PC?
and when u go out somewhere you have to carry the cable and charger & stuff bcos nothing else would fit the iphone. whereas standard micro usb cables are abundant for android phones.
and dont u think its nicer to have a home screen, where u can see a lot of info, some nice animated live wall paper..etc rather than to have the app dock staring at you all the time?
and what about the conduct of the company? trying to bar the competitors from selling their phones, suing any company who they think is going to be a challenge, extortion of the poor workers at foxconn..etc. ? (i read somewhre that the annual pay of one such worker is less than the price of one iphone) do these things look really acceptable morally?
well...if you dont care about any of these..and..lots of stuff the others pointed out...i guess iphone is the best phone for you..:)
U people asking question from me ? And I'm giving the same with throwing another questions on u guys! Is this necessary ? I do not know man .. Personally I don't like to c ae live wallpapers .. One reason is its like "gode" to me !(LOL) and other thing I think it would kill The battery unnecessarily .. And widgets aren't my things too like I said. It's k just 4 get it . What is your phone ? Sgs3 ? And are you sure that sgs3 and HTC one x having better screens than retina ??
no machan, dont have a smartphone at the moment. cant afford a sgs3 or one x anyway :). but i have seen & operated almost all smartphones. one x and sgs 3 have larger, higher resolution screens. pixel density is around the same as iphone 4s. i prefer larger screens. cant settle for 3.5 inches after using the hd2 :).
No the screen doesn't "look" better, because it's bigger on the SGS III. But being at 4.8 inches, it's pretty damn amazing. The Retina just looks a bit more clear because it's a smaller screen. If you packed those pixels of the SGS III into a 3.5 or 4 inch screen, it'll destroy Retina.
But I agree, it seems like you personally prefer your iPhone, and we prefer our Androids. Let's just stick to that and agree to disagree :)
Buddy !! U almost agree with me that the retina look better than sgs3 and other android !! (so far it is ) but also u mentioning that if sgs3 display pack to the size of 3.5 it will distroy the retina. It can not be right buddy ,,,, cz the displays quality will build by their ppi... So if sgs3 having more than300 of ppi then it will look nice even with 4.8" display.isnt it ? If not it is false bout pixel destiny on sgs3. And I'm 23 !
I said it looks better because it's smaller. Duh? Did you know the ppi is a little less now on the iPhone 5 because the screen got a little taller? It's how it works for the most part. Just because Apple throws a name like "Retina", don't think they came up with something revolutionary like they claim. Just look at numbers. Like 1136-by-640 at 326 ppi for the iPhone 5. The 4S was 640 x 960 at 330 ppi. My phone has 1280x720 at 316 ppi. So as you can see, and as I said before, the bigger the screen gets, the more the ppi falls.
But here's something revolutionary for you. The Sony Xperia SL has 1280x720, at 342 ppi! That my friend, destroys the iPhone "Retina", by a huge margin. So the iPhone isn't the "best" display. There's nothing to agree with you on. Know the facts, then say such things.
Man, I just don't care anymore lol. Not going to convince you of anything.

im 13 (dont make fun of that) i love smartphones at first my uncle got an iphone 3gs i played with it every time i get to and of course i ws saving up my money to buy one then the 4 came out and i was pissing my pants then the 4s came out then GOOGLED the price for it and holy sh** ฿20000 -฿25000 (i was in thailand), i moved to New zealand later on and it was $1000 or more there, then my friend bought a galaxy mini i played with it and fell in love with android and found out that u can get better phones for a cheaper price, so my personal xperiance is that android is much better and not just the widgets, hav u heard of the whatsapp app? on IOS: $0.99 on Android: FREE!!!!!! so conclusion I like android better and u should give it a try.
Buddy here is 3 number of people.. U , that kid and our inovation guy.. :) its not fair to make decision like that. The favour will depend on vivid reasons.. That kid mainly talking bout the expensiveness of iPhone ? And inovation talking bout display size , And widgets ...u talking bout what ? ( can't remember ) but machnag my prefer is uncommon , the build quality and the brand .. So I think I'm on my correct path ... But I will change to any other if anything here to beat apple on the way that I can feel it clearly.
Hey little buddy !! What is your current phone ? Didn't you go for iPhone 4 ? 4s ? I'm still using my iPhone 4 , now it's almost 2 years and 2 days :) !! But u believe me it's look like a brand new phone !! Not even single scratch. Cz of that sapphire like glass.. And no any repairs.. (even it has fell like 6 , 7 times or more / also at once it fell to complete water bulk ) but it didn't get system fail. ( and some of my friends are using sgs phones, not even old like one year but they are almost making system failures... ) so how can I trust android and the samsung also ... ?? Its fine buddy will c when I'm gonna happy with android !! :) and to all u, My country man &innovation I'm not arguing with any of you... Just we are just talking bout em... Right? Are we good ?
yep..no issue with me :)..but i still suggest you use a high end android device for some time & see. if thats not practical have a look at some of the video reviews here at PA. i suggest you have a look at the motorola droid razr review, one of my favourites .

i like this phone because of it's specs but judging from the video, it looks like samsung galaxy s 2 (design). I hope once it is launch few days from now, it has really a beastly specs and hopefully a better design.
