    Hmmm I hope this isn't true, mainly because it's GPU which is only 30% faster than the GPU from the G3.

    At the other side the 808 could be faster than the 810 because of producing less heat, which means less throttling.

    I doubt thats true. LG wants to be the #3 smartphone vendor, so they are not going to release a phone with inferior specs to their rivals.

    Thats what I was thinking when I read the article. It might seem like a minus but in the end it might end up with better performance if there is throttling due to heat on the 810.

    That leather cover would be really awful. I can't see them doing that! The G4 has kinda slid under the radar after the M9 and S6 releases. Hope LG has a winner.

    Agreed, the G4 is the device I am waiting for, hopefully they do it right.
    Right, their release-date is a bit unlucky I think, they should show us what they got before the M9 and S6 starts shipping, otherwise everyone and their mother will have a M9 or S6, and the rest will wait till autumn for the new iPhones.

    Seems the G4 will get a new 5,5" display, which is great, as this is the sweet spot for me.
    And with LG's small bezels the device won't get too big - can't wait for the announcement...

    I am slowly coming to this conclusion too.

    Basically, it's get an iPhone 6, stick to my G3 or get the G4 if it is reasonably priced.

    I actually really like my G3.

    I traded the 6+ in for a 6 because I have a g3 as well. I know it's not feasible because of the home button, but if apple could of got close to the size of the g3 I would still have that 6+. Perfect size for me.

    Looking forward to checking out the G4, the more choices out there the better.

    Yeah I thought about the 6+ but every single person I know in real life who has one just says it's too big and they regret getting it.

    Then I show them my G3 and they are like "Oooooh that's the perfect size".

    So that tells me enough, really. I just hope the price for the G4 is decent, like the G3 was last year.

    I like that LG is stepping up to compete. It can't just be Apple and Samsung pushing each other. I'm looking forward to G4 details.

    It would be nice if there were more horses in the race to keep things competitive. Since HTC didn't bring their A game this time around....pulling for LG to hit a home run.

    Exactly. From my point of view, it breaks down more or less like this...

    Top spots: Apple, Samsung.

    Second tier is a fight between: LG, HTC, Motorola, Sony. Of this group, LG has the best chance and resources to join Apple/Samsung.

    Third tier: OnePlus, Xiaomi, Huwai, Blu, etc. Aka the rest of them. ;)


    Are there other players?

    Right now, I think perhaps:

    G4 + G Watch Urbane = Winning Formula

    I really like how LG are teasing it, and I'm getting more and more interested week by week.
