    That looks so sweet from the specs. If they added a slide-out gamepad to it, I would be all over it.

    I wonder how it'll fare against its competition this MWC. Sucks for LG that their flagship phone will be stomped on later in the year when S4 krait(maybe), omap 5, and exynos 5250 debut.

    Someone told me once that theres a right and wrong, and that punishment would come to those
    who dare to cross the line.
    But it must not be true for jerk-offs like you.
    Maybe it takes longer to catch a total a__hole.

    Nice. I have an LG Fathom I'd love to replace with this. Yes, we would need bigger pockets! That sucker dwarfs my current phone LOL!

    1GB of RAMM? Isn't that a little bit light? 16GB of storage is a bit passe' nowadays too isn't it? Especially for a flagship. I mean 16/32 would have been a real nut floater... Not that I still wouldn't want one of these augmenting my old fat bastard hip clips... I'm afraid of that price tag and I ain't afraid of nothing...

    I like how those phones look like 12" tablets in the tiny hands of those girls who look like they're maybe 14...

The 16GB is standard because of the cheap prices of Micro SD cards. As for the 1GB RAM...2GB will likely be the standard by the end of the year.

    LOL, you guys are funny. A phone is just a phone for me. Though mine isn't activated at the moment. Plans are just too expensive at the moment. So, I use it as an mp3 player. Works quite nicely too :p

Seeing as the Razor & Galaxy S2 come with 16GB of RAMM (my Droid x came with it too, but the newer X2 comes with only 8, go figure...), then to see LG refer to this device as a 'flagship'... I guess I'm missing something here.

    That screen is not THAT large. You just have two skinny girls with small hands holding the phone. ANY phone would look large in their hands. Reading the specs will show that it's not a huge phone; fast, but not huge.

Government meds... you know this stuff comes from the lowest bidder, the actual values could vary several grams at a whack pretty easy...

Yeah I forgot how things look bigger in the hands of smaller women..LMAO!! When I saw the pick I said DAAAAMMMN! and then I read the spec and now I'm less impressed. 4.7" ? Thats not impressive...LMAO Plus its an LG...cant be that good.

    What I am most surprised about is that the [edited] that are modeling the phones in the picture aren't Asian.

    Sorry, but 4.7 is massive in my book! My LG fathom is 3.2. I consider that enough, but much bigger, would be very large for a phone. :p

    I'm confused! Isn't this just a tablet with phone? You may as well hold an I-pad up to your ear. Its much like having a clock on your wrist and calling it a watch.
