I'm not settle for samsung/apple's old technology with their upgraded software. I'm going with this top-of-the-line smartphone even if it stay on ICS it's enough for me and ready for heavy usage apps/games that may get released by devs in the future and benifits this powerful hardware.

lashton, 18 Sep 2012people sometimes buy phone for thier funtions not for upgradesYeah, of course. If you change phone once a year. plzz

I would get it if I'm planning to use my phone for a couple of months but I'm definitely not getting it since I'm willing to keep my next phone for at least 2 years and I need updates.Will either get the S3 or wait for the next nexus but most likely I'm getting the S3,at least its bootloader isn't locked like LG phones.

I am impressed by the powerful hardware and battery. But the squarish camera lens and plasticky corners are totally fugly.

Sorta ugly

No tv out, and jelly bean soon to follow..
this being lg jelly bean will probably arrive in 2 years.

Am I the only one who disappointed with its design? The back cover is innovative but the camera and flash design looks like an afterthought.

"The handset will get updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in Korea by the end of this year."

Stop complaining about software updates guys. Sometimes you buy a phone not just cauze of their software, rite? New phones release very often these days and usually you'll feel outdated with your phone after 6 months or something and at that time whether or not there're updates you would turn your expectation to others. Think about that....

Much superiot to both iphone 5 and Lumia X20. Better HW, good design, much better os. But LG must step up its game in SW optimalisation and updates dept.

this phone never failed me when it comes to the design. i am so eager to wait for this phone or the rumored HTC One X5 on the news section of gsmarena coz that looks fab too! they are both powered by quad s4 Pro chips which make both of the 2 the most powerful smartphones to date. RIP Apple and Sammy! LG, HTC and Sony will take the lead this year up until next year if all the 3 mentioned will incorporate their lovely designs and great internals! ^^

now this is some competition (somehow beyond 5th row icon lolz)

You hypocrites! You barely have money to live and you criticize LG and its products. You have no idea what LG means, go and watch some Samsung pictures on the web.
