i just traded a gs3 for an Optimus g at a corporate sprint store but before I did i noticed some obvious disparities. First the Optimus sat in the middle of store with accessories around it. The phone wasn't marked or labeled and because of the layout, a typical consumer would have no idea it was an actual phone for purchase. Everywhere else in the sprint store old pos phones were clearly labeled, for example Motorola admiral has its own display, clear and large information including prices in well light and organized sections.

I asked a rep how would anyone know if this phone is being sold, he simply replied I know. its become clear to be sprint glorifies iphones and galaxies. verizon glorifies iphones and droids. i dont know about tmobile or at@t

i love my gs3 for verizon but come on besides the skunk homescreen on the lg, its clearly the better phone than ether the gs3 or iphone 5.

We've sold out of the Optimus G at my Costco, where it's on special this month -- first at $79.99 then $49.99 over the MLK holiday weekend. Members come in looking for the S III and walk out with the LG.
