Honestly the phone almost feels better in hand than the GS3. Not sure why everyone is saying it feels awkward. However, keep in mind LG makes the phone to Googles specifications. It's not the Optimus G to the T, but it's close. It is what it is for $300.

Agreed--the Nexus 4 feels more substantial, or high end, in the hand to me as well. And I understand how the rounded back of the GS3 may lend to a more comfortable feeling in the hand for some people but some posters here make it sound like you're holding razor blades with the N4. Maybe it's just the way I hold it--find myself really only touching the edges and the N4 has nicely rounded edges as well, never felt uncomfortable to hold, even for prolonged periods.

But even after all that, I'd still recommend the GS3 based on battery and camera performance alone.

LOL, you have been deciding this for seems like a few months now. Just keep both since it doesnt seem to be cutting into your budget. Not like you have a monthly bill for both.

Is the battery on the GS3 significantly better than the Nexus 4? This has always been an issue with Android phones for me, iPhones always win for battery life.
