Yeah as everyone else says looks like a note 2 but with the note 3 on the horizon with a possible 6 inch + screen Id wait on that unless this phone turned out to be a 99 dollar one or something

this year,every other android phone will have a big 1080p screen and some good specs......so, making the devices water proof,dust proof is very important

I hate the look but am sure it won look like that.. I hate Sammy designs sothis doesn't bode well with me. I love LG UI and phone design. I would buy this phone IF it looks like LG design but not this design

You sound pretty mixed up to say the least. Fall back Samsung owns this space they are the creators everyone else are just pretenders here.

mate everyone gets it your overly attached to samsung but get a grip. samsung wont be on top of this category for ever they have been lucky having it to themselves and been the main player but others will bleed into it and smoother them down choice benefits the customer

Richie, from your posts you seem ambivalent on your preferences. Hard to tell whether you prefer Samsung or are looking to switch to LG. You just are NOT communicating your preference.....How do you REALLY feel?

Lg is extremely weak and soft when it comes to battery management on all their devices. Lg Gx2, Lg Nexus 4, lg Optimus G, plus all the others from 2010 and 2011. Lg is a joke.

Lol, @ fanboys. My Nexus 4, with Franco kernel, matches the battery life of your precious Note II. Don't get me wrong, I love the Note II, and I'm a fan of Samsung, but to say that LG is crap is just wrong. They did a great job with the Nexus 4, and surprised a lot of people with its build quality. The Optimus G is also a surprisingly good device, too.

Im not talkn the old ones. Im talkn bout the g pro huge battery life.

Doesn't seem legit though- LG's new styling for phones are angular, and there isn't much round corners. :1

The phone looks nice but if you already have a note 2 then it is not that much of a spec bump and the note 3 is coming out. It would be interesting to see what new features they added on the software side.

It says Snapdragon 600 right there in the spec sheet (korean)

To be completely honest. My rooted Note 2 with Jedi X rom and Saber kernel clocked at 1.9 Ghz is More Than capable of keeping up with this guy. Don't Sleep On The Note 2!!

Regardless this if it is new and Optimus G Pro are going to get extensive looks by me when my upgrade hits man oh and of course Samsung Galaxy IV also. Then Android 5.0 is suppose to hit a little later. Got to admit it's great to be a Droid fan right now no dis to apple(although I don't like them).

So 1.7 Ghz Quad-Core snapdragon, 2GB Ram, 13 MP Camera 16 or 32 GB is the standard for high end smartphones this year. S IV, Xperia Z, G Pro, M7 all have similar specs. It will come down to design and price and which network these bad boys will be available. Let the war begin!

Thumbs up because I noticed that myself it will really be a look and feel type thing. My prediction M7 will be the leader, SIV might be 3rd place and LG might be second with Xperia Z in last place(not a bad thing if Sony just gets it right). It's not always bad to be in last place, but if you at least make a little noise considering how Sony phones have been received lately(lots of people I know don't like the phones) it would go a long ways. I know people might say SIV third place??????You're out of your mind, but sometimes you'll be surprised though lol.

I got the Optimus G the other day, having the S3, one X+. I have to say the screen is every bit as as sharp the one x, which is awesome. The freaking phone still has ICS and its synthetic benchmarks are tops right now. Stock quadrant its 7700 or even better. Real world use, it destroys the One X+, and beats the S3. Next to the nexus 4 again the G does out perform it in almost every catagory with the addition of 16GB more internal, and a SD card that supports 64GB. The build quality is exceptional, the earpice exceptional. If LG would beat the rest in softaware updates they would dominate.

I like the idea of a 5,5 inch 1080p phone! If the Note 3 with a 6,3 inch display feels too damn big then I can always go for this one.. nice save LG!

The LG Galaxy One X.
