    optimus G is more powerfull because of his quad core processor. the snapdragon is more faster then exynos and olso the snapdragon is using les power from battery where the exynos is using more power when u play or navigate on the internet. the screen from lg. optimus G its better .. why ? cause the LG is using the last IPS TH. of screens, and the samsung is still using the damn Amoled HD ( wich is very low on pixels if u compare with the IPS TH.) olso the light from the optimus g is 10x bigger then amoled hd. i recomand u the LG OPTIMUS G , very good screen, the most faster and stable phone on the market, 2Gb ram, high 3d game plays, new battery TH (high lifetime then standard battery) , best screen i ever see on a phone, and a true design and a nice feeling when u have it on ur own hand.

      I agree with the updates, Samsung is being good at giving updates but 1 GB RAM in S3 is enough for now but what about in future?
      I have seen many Galaxy S2 users who complains that phone gets restarts automatically due to RAM gets full and it runs in 1 GB RAM.

    iPhone 5 is better than both, higher pixel density, made of metal and faster software. Androids fail because who wants to carry Tablet in their pocket?!

      No one knows the full freaking specs of the iphone 5
      And, no, the iphone has a lower density screen.
      And the metal is only the OUTSIDE
      Android os is more open and has MORE features than ios. So, I don’t know why you fanboys are so closed minded
      And yeah, how could iphone 5 be faster when its probably going to be a dual core and NOT a quad core?

        I agree, but many of us are getting tired of Android due to the updates. They have released ICS, and now Jellybean and many are still using Gingerbread with no possibility of an upgrade due to OEM fragmentation. I wish they were able to s. eparate the UI from the actual OS. Where the UI would run separate from the uji and could be updated independantly of each other. Yes Android is much better than IOS. I hope Window WP8 will be like Apple in terms of OS upgrades, and then maybe manufacturers and Android will take the step they need.
