Looks sleek! This is 2014's first true flagship (great design and top of the line specs) I think I finally found my next phone. This can't come out soon enough.

ZOMG!!! That big bezel?! Why LG? Why? Why the logo when it could be a speaker? Total waste of space! :D

And that logo looks ugly, Nexus 4/5 doesn't have logo on rear side and they look very stylish.

That's the case, actual bezel looks the same as the G2.

Nice looking phone! Don't know if I'd like having one of the buttons on the back, but it does look nice. Reminds me of HTC from a couple of years ago.

There's some cut-off at every corner of the device? 4 mics....?

It's probably a tv antenna, the g pro and g pro 2 came with one in asia

Like stated earlier, the Korean versions have TV antennas. That pin hole probably has something to do noise cancellation? And the black oval on back next to the camera is most likely the IR blaster similar to the Flex. Sounds cliche, but my main concern is what processor it will have. I'm hoping for an S805 but I think it will have an S801 like the M8 and S5. Having the QHD and S801 isn't enough for me to upgrade from my G2.

Maybe it's not the greatest picture in the world but where is the front camera? I don't see it, could just be how the picture was enlarged to not look good.

Why the case has a hole on the top? It seems like a LG 3.5mm but I think that it's at the bottom.

The back buttons looks weird.. I prefer the G2 one. However the front is so sleek and elegant... Almost no bezel. Definitely better than S5, Z2 or M8 in terms of Bezels. However it lacks a 'premium' feel still, present in the Z2, M8 and the 2012's Optimus G.

I hope the G3's back is made of glass like the good ol' Optimus G. But still, the thin bezels on the front is just beautiful.

Hate the back buttons and think it should use a smaller screen but unfortunately this is the best 2014 handset until the Nexus 6. So I might be forced to live with the back buttons as long as this is smaller than the GS5. Might be tough to do with that 5.5 inches screen though

I don't know about this. Its all depends on the UI and skin basically. Everything else is probably ok like the rest. For me it has comes down to the skin difference on a phone and OEMs needs to put more effort into it. HTC is doing a great job

How on earth could LG be so stupid as to put the speaker on the back, i refuse to believe they did something so dumb

Should comes with Snapdragon 805 as LG collaborated with Qualcomm!
