Let me guess, 1 is either LG or Motorola, 2 is Samsung obviously and last is HTC which you can tell by the small battery.

this specs configuration comparison is totally unbiased.How can you compare Cortex A9 with Cortex A15 ?

Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro (Krait) is the carbon copy of ARM Cortex A15.View this link to see the details:-

There is no Cortex A15 chip here. The S4 is not based on the ARM Cortex A15 architecture.

OMAP5 and Exynos 5 Dual are based on A15.

Listen I like Qualcomm but the S4 Krait chipset is not a carbon copy of a A15. It's SIMILAR but it's not a A15.

You look at everything presented & yes, of course everyone will choose configuration number 1. There is no contest.

just for giggles, can you name 3 ways in which it is similar to an A15? :) Other than Q saying that its equivalent and thus bloggers repeating that over n over again, what actually makes it equivalent? :)

I always associate Motorola with the Tegras because of the Photon and Atrix phones. I'd put #1 with a Japanese maker because of the camera but the LTE throws it off so it'd have to be a made for America phone. Maybe an HTC since they use Snapdragons and put that 16MP sensor in the Titan 2 recently.

i've gotten to where i associate ASUS with Nvidia. they come together well.

Samsung is of course all about the Exynos and then there's the Motorola/OMAP and HTC/Snapdragon duos.

I understand that this post is sponsored by LG, but I wonder: what's the point? It's obvious which list of specs will be superior and would be the clear-cut favorite, so why did LG spend the money to put together this poll? If anything, it seems like they're just patting themselves on the back rather than making any meaningful advertising push. Yes, we get it, you have good specs, now put it in the form of a regular ad please.

There are plenty of people that are biased against LG. The specs on the left look the most impressive and make sense why it got the most votes, but when they reveal what phone you just voted for people will bash on LG.

I would hope that everyone who voted here would have read the disclaimer at the top and would understand that they were voting for an LG phone when they picked the best specs. I don't think any LG bashers got tricked by this poll, though I could be wrong.

LG is trying their best to get some ground excitement for their products. Its great of them to do so.. if their products measure up in all aspects, not just hardware.

I love that they are pushing hard on hardware.. we know im a tech geek. However, after owning LG products, Im extremely hesitant since they tend to drop support rather quickly. Both their G-Slate tablet and G2X phone were plain "with google" sets, and neither saw much support beyond a basic bug fix. There is no reason for that. They are technically no different than a nexus... its stock google. I know I say not to expect updates, but when its a stock set, there really isnt much of an excuse.

yes, outside of the US HTC devices with T3 are more common. they use snapdragon in the US for LTE compatibility.

they want to show everyone that they have better specs...

but it's really not about the specs LG. it's about experience.
I would even trade my better specd Asus Prime for a Nexus 7 and the SGS3 just somehow equals the Gnex and how the iPhone still is popular even if it's specs suck.

I have bought one LG phone and that's my last LG phone. I guess the ratio would be different if they have shown us the brand.

Spec. of the phone plays a big part but so does after sales support.

LG have very lousy track record on software update. Samsung/Sony/HTC has already given their phone ICS.

Most LG phones are still struck on gingerbread/froyo.

I rather pick another brand other than LG and Motorola.

you got that right. My "with google" LG tablet never got updated past 3.1.. and even that was extremely late. It has all the specs to run 4.0/4.1 but LG just doesnt want to update it. "With Google" is stock android just like a nexus. There is zero reason they cant throw the update out. At least there is CM10 development going on for it. As soon as its a lil more stable, 4.1 here I come.
