For a half of the price optimus G is a better option.
Optimus G is much more cheaper DONE! buy optimus g
All of your are wrong, it changes by countries, for example, canada version comes with 8mp camera, supports LTE networks, but doesn´t has a slot for external memory, it comes with internal 32gb memory and not more, mexican version comes with 13mpx camera but it doesnt support LTE connections also is a one piece phone with non removable back cover and it just comes with 32 gb internal memory, japanese version comes with removable back cover for easier acces to the battery, micro sd slot... and it keeps changing, search on the web
No, you are wrong, LG optimus G have 13 MP back camera and 32 GB storage (note : I read in magazine)
all tho, optimus G has 13MP camera.
Thanks for pointing that out @Nikhil, we will up date that soon.
Two things are wrong for LG Optimus: 1. It has 8 MP back camera, not 13 MP 2. Internal memory 16 GB and it comes with 16 GB memory card installed. So its good for video,music storage, but for app installation it has only 16 GB in-build. refer ATT abd LG official website. http://www.lg.com/us/cell-phones/lg-E970-optimus-g The Sprint one looks customized Optimus. I am not seeing that on LG company website
