    I'm glad another company has made a 5" screen smartphone ,

    I'm hoping I'm not the only one thinking it's a good size for a smartphone screen - I think LG have made one but wont' be selling in the UK

    The phone dimensions shouldn't be like the Note

    That'd be great if LG had any idea how to manage OS updates and software. Sadly, they don't, and it's likely to be a beautiful piece of hardware hampered by god awful software. Shame, I've always preferred 4:3 screen ratios, and they don't seem to be common outside of Apple devices, the now-dead Touchpad, and cheap Chinese Android tabs of dubious provenance!

    Indeed. I was tempted by the 4x at first until I researched on their past performance in this area...
    In the end opted for an SGS3.
