    Default If specs are true, I want this

    I'm a sucker for a good display and a good camera. This is pretty much guaranteed to have a great display because of THIS announcement. The camera has a high MP count, but that doesn't mean that'll it'll perform well. The Optimus 4X is a letdown in this area, and I hope that LG remedies that.

    And there's THIS.

    Software is a non-issue, really, because even if you're stuck with ICS and LG's UI, it's not bad at all. And it'll probably be easy to root, too.

    I agree if this device pans out and becomes reality with these specs its gonna turn some heads

    I've been thinking of switching to TMO for their unlimited data plan but might rethink that if this is coming to AT&T... I like the specs on this!!!

    I want this too! Specs are amazing... been reading about it today a bit and i'm very impressed. Been thinking about upgrading to a quad core lte handset when they come to vzw and if the G does come to verizon i'm all over it! Honestly... I dont see the competition having much of a chance against this beast. Im getting more and more excited by the minute! Hurry up LG! Get this phone to the US ASAP!!

    Actually the regulatory headache in the US ensures a delay long after Korea is bored with it.

    Do I want JB? Yes. Is it deal breaker? Not in this case. If the camera is as good as they claim and the screen looks as nice as I suspect, I will get this phone, JB or no. But it would be great if they had to option to use the stock launcher like the Epic 4 G Touch does.

    Considering this is a phone that practically no one is talking about (my Sprint rep didn't even know LG was releasing a quad core phone), I am very excited for the 19th.

    Sealed battery and no SD slot. The latter isn't necessarily a deal breaker, but unless the battery has RAZR Maxx life, is a no go. A shame, it had so much promise.

    The sealed battery stinks. 32gb might be enough for most people but it does suck not having the extra space.

    Could LG have been somewhat forced to seal the battery inside due to the nature of the beast? This isn't your normal lithium ion battery if I'm not mistaken. Proper Recycling and disposal of the battery could have played a part in the final decision. I really don't know. I'm just speculating.

    The sealed battery is necessary if they want to put as large a battery as they can in the smallest volume they can fit it in. Without having a plastic shell, they can make the battery bag larger. Because it's LCD and not AMOLED, the thicker screen requires a sealed battery if they want to retain thinness. HTC went for a sealed battery for the same reason. Samsung's AMOLED screen allows them to offer a removable battery and still retain thinness.

    If the Android OEM's start trying to compete with the iPhone 5 on thinness, sealed batteries may become the norm.

    Here is an interview with the chief designer of the phone Henry Nho, and he explains alot of the design features of the phone.

    Boy its going to come down to the wire for me between the LG Optimus G and the Galaxy Note 2...

    Default Re: If specs are true, I want this

    I'm starting to look into portable battery chargers in lieu of spare batteries because I do like this phone and the Note 2 is probably too big for one handed use.

    It's all going to come to the camera.

    So you guys put hardware ahead of software in this case? What happens if KLP makes the A1 hardware of the G obsolete in under a year? Dont get me wrong i'm considering this phone just want some feedback.

    But then we'd just keep waiting another year for the next big thing every year and still be stuck on a Touch Diamond.

    With your thinking we should all wait for Nvidia Maximus architecture on a smartphone. It is probably only a few years away.

    I passed by an LG shop yesterday and held the G in my hand. It has a more quality build feel to it. It gave me a strong Iphone sense to it. Almost like they copied the Iphone with a bigger screen.

    The screen is like three mm shorter than my lte2 and maybe one or two mm wider.

    (demo model) I don't think they had any up and running.
