You can remove QSlide apps window with no empty space. I saw this on video in youtube.

Mind linking me to the video? I've searched everywhere for a solution, but the only ones I've found requires rooting

The S4 mini is TINY. It's like literally the size of an iphone 5. Sure their are still some bezels to shrink still but I think the Moto X is as small 4.7 inch can get and the GS4 mini is much smaller still.

LG G2 is not a bad phone, for now. Lets wait for Note 3. Then we'll have a real battle in ours hands.

In terms of Software updates, can G2 match S4?

Thanks Victor, this was a great comparison, one of the bests I've seen on Phonearena. Your English is also really good. I would have liked to see more low-light shots from the G2, but I'm sure that you will write about that more extensively in a coming article.

I hope the Nexus 5 is based on this but I hope the short cuts to make it cheaper are less this time.

My Optimus G for example had superb quality control and My Nexus 4 had slight light bleed in the corner among other things. Basically the Optimus G felt more solid in many ways. Especially the screen software/firmware, same screen but a HUGE difference in quality.

The funny thing is, LG did the same thing with the Optimus G. Sadly, it was easily over-looked by the S3 and One X. Hopefully, LG will finally get the recognition it deserves. Optimus G sales were terrible and sprint even had it marked down to $100 a few months after its release. If people recognize this as a true power house and get it rather than the GS4, then maybe next year Samsung will actually be innovative.

G2 is a complete copycat of Samsung. Check their Camera UI, Smart Screen, Smart Video, etc..
Howe come they are exactly using the term 'Smart Screen'?

I rather keep my s4 till the s5 comes out. I can make more storage and more battery life than the g2. Plus the g2 ui is so ugly!! It looked like baby fingers created the skin, dont get me wrong its a beast but i love my s4. its not worth the money though.
