LG G3 gets compared to the G2 at Verizon, the result is inadvertently hilarious

Verizon now has a new webpage that compares the upcoming LG G3 to the old G2, which has been available since last year. Obviously, this can be very informative to the carrier’s customers who may wonder if they should upgrade to the newer G3. However, someone at Verizon screwed up, so we’re seeing a photo of a QWERTY feature phone where the G3 should be visible. The feature phone we're talking about is the LG Cosmos 3 - which, save for the fact that it’s made by the same company, has absolutely nothing to do with the high-end G3. 

Other than this hilarious error, the text comparing the G3 to the G2 isn’t bad - you’ll find it at the source link below, alongside the QWERTY phone that’s presented as the G3. Of course, Verizon will probably fix this up pretty soon. Until then, you can certainly check out our LG G3 vs. LG G2 comparison here. No mixed-up photos, we promise!

The new LG G3 is expected to be released by Verizon (and all other major US carriers) later this month.

Well that person must really not give a crap about his/her job to make that kind of an error.

The LG G2 is a better overall phone than the G3...

I'd say your in the tiny, tiny minority with that statement... And have you ever held either one, tried one out?

No, but 5.2" and 5.5" is a big difference and unfortunately a deal breaker for me...

You haven't held or seen one in person, but you claim .3 inches of screen is "big" and a "deal breaker" You shouldn't talk or type. Ever.

Gold, pure gold. How misinformed and unthoughtful could an employee be to mix that up... How could he look at a sliding feature phone, with a 1" screen, and all those buttons, and not realize that it's a dinosaur. He works for Verizon, the US's biggest wireless service provider and can not sense that there is something wrong. Hilarious. Maybe he's about to quit his job and wanted to have a little bit of fun.
