sony is the best when it comes to midrange and lowend phones, they pack them with tons of features and a modest 1ghZ snapdragon soc with adreno 205, which can even run shadowgun!!!(smoothly), lesson learnt sony, now its time for LG.

I agree with cyan3bon.However,I think you should stay away from the L3 and L5.Their poor ppi is the reason.
Get a galaxy mini 2,unless you are only concenered on beauty and cost.

Exterior seems legit, but the internal specs for me are a nightmare.... I don't mind a 4.3" screen, but LG sud really consider qHD or HD screens if they're planning on releasing them later this yr, esp for the L7, rather than a WVGA screen... The 217ppi pixel density is just not acceptable if rumor holds true, and needs at least a 1.2/1.5GHz dual-core processor with at least 1GB of RAM and a 8MP camera if LG's planning on pushing the L7 as their flagship-like smartphone... If the article holds true, then it'll be a smart move by LG to at least have ICS preinstalled and a microSD slot.

Now this makes me think, that prada L5 with such a low end specs can run ice-cream sandwich, then why couldn't samsung Galaxy S with much superior specs than L5, run Ice-cream sandwich............???? Cmon Sammy give us the answer....... And don't rply that specs of galaxy S is not enough for ice cream sandwich; because we are seeing lots of low specd phones being announced with ice-cream sandwich..............

Why Do you complain ?
Samsung has given a Value Pack update to gs1 owners !
Btw it wasnt ICS fault it's touchwiz , ICS is fine but sgs1 cant handle sgs1 + touchwiz
But I do hope what we get is stock ICS not value pack though

I think It's too late to launch a high end smart phone with 512 MB of RAM.
1 GB of RAM should be a standard for next android phone having 1 GHz of CPU.
I cannot use browser to browse any huge webpage without force close in Nexus S in spite of the fact that the RAM has been clear.
