6-7x more powerful processor? probably not. I was talking about overall design.

http://www.anandtech.com/show/6305/lg-optimus-g-performance-preview now compare the Optimus G and the G Nexus. that of course assuming stock android running the same specs doesn't do better.

Actually, all of that averages to be about 4x more powerful. You still exaggerated a bit.

yeah i figured that too after calculating the numbers. i just took a biased guessed after recalling those benchmark scores. again, it's a benchmark preview of an LG skinned phone. expect the Nexus to do even better.

Lol 6-7 times more powerful CPU? Exaggerate much?

Chances are the phone we see at the end of october is really a complete device compared to what we have been shown with 8gb of storage and no LTE or CDMA.

I imagine the 8GB won't hold true, and CDMA might be coming, but I REALLY doubt you will see LTE. LTE is a compromise, in terms of battery life and compatibility, it still hasn't seen enough market penetration, and it would not allow the device to be sold cheap enough, unlocked, on the Play Store.

come on wireless charging definitely cannot be good for your health, how can it, all those powerful penetration rays powerful enough to be sent through the air into the phone, i think the effects will be really messed up and definitely make people feeling nausea and sick, and have a damaging effects to cells especial brain cells..forget this, phones are already high in radiation capabilities, this just boosts it and increases its radiation penetration, not going to even think about moving to this trend, just get me a plug with a wire, people are just too lazy to even attach it, tooo lazy man...

I agree on this. It's not something to cheer about. Boycott wireless charges.

That is the ugliest handset that I have ever seen.
