My Sammy Galaxy W is currently jogging along extremely nicely with Cyanogenmod 9 (ICS 4.0.4 - which is not offered by Sammy as an upgrade for the SGW)no need to repeatedly flash different ROMs for stability.
Clockwork Mod is a very nice and capable alternative to stock recovery and makes backing up my entire device & switching between ROMs a complete doddle that anyone with a pc and a usb cable can do.

wow. i don't know if i will buy this anymore. just 4th? under the other chinese brands? and its running 4.2 and an untouched OS. wtf? this is the crap im afraid of when google chose LG. not to mention the 8gig memory and maximum 16gig. i think imma wait until they partner with either HTC or Sony.

  • hi

add a silver strip on GN then make a new phone?

Nokia are using polycarbonate for covers and chassis on high end phones, so finger pointing at Korean brands is a touch narrow minded.

You guuuuuyyyyss. ROM Updates is now NOT LG's responsibility, because this is a PURE Google Device. Nexus devices are the first that get updates, DIRECTLY from Google. So...chill.

  • Snirk

Google is making a big mistake...

eFiJy, 24 Oct 2012LG is making the updates? Google isn't providing updates on time... morePlease go and learn more. Galaxy Nexus is using OMAP chipset. Why should Google do extra work and make updates for phones with Exynos, Tegra, Novathor chipsets? They would only help phones with the same hardware

  • djst

4th place? After Xiaomi MI-2 who's running 4.1? Wtf, so why I should choose the new 4.2 if it's not better than 4.1 on the same chipset?

  • whiteginger

oh no..LG..i don't think they're capable in making phone.why don't choose Nexus partnership with other brand..

  • mn

LG makes great products, the hardware that is,lg is'nt exactly good with updating, infact updating with LG is almost a myth. :)
So if google makes the updates, Nexus 4 will be as great as it should be.
Just hope the Nexus 10 don't use Tegra, never again Nvida!

Owned Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus. Unfortunately I now own an Optimus 3D, because of a mistake. I couldn't find another Galaxy Nexus because they are out of stock. I hope LG doesn't touch anything in the OS and that the battery life won't be half a day like the Optimus 3D. I am very afraid... :)))
