It'll be another LG phone which never gets software updates. It's a pity they're so awful with them because the hardware design is so damn nice.

Looks like an absolute beast of a phone. Will give the S4 a run for it's money.

Looks like another well-specced LG phone. As nunasdream said, though, they need to pull finger with software support & updates before I'll touch another of their products.

Performance wise yes, definitely, but for me no swappable battery and no external SD for the international markets means its not in my future.

I see the Herald have it online already. Just have to wait now for Sydney Morning Herald to publish it, then a couple of days and Stuff may have a story on it :)
