Sounds like an open thread on greed form thoughts about what people like or didn't like between the first and second generation flagships. Now if youwere trying to be obtuse about WhY the need for such a thread, it may have been easier to just type those exact words... I kind of like putting all of those comparisons in one thread for those still on the fence about sticking with LG.... The OG can be had in secondary markets for under a Benjie and it's still a more than capable phone for what we do daily...

No, I figured that was what it was about just thought it was a weird way of going about it. As for which one is better, the G2 would win for most people based on specs alone. However, I'd still choose the lgog for one major reason, developer support. This isn't a concern for your casual/standard smartphone user. G2 will catch up eventually I think, but I love this forum, just a bunch of great, helpful people and a ton of support.

Also, I got my lgog for $1.00 almost 6 months ago from Best Buy because I was due for an upgrade and that was the sale.

And while the G2 is impressive on the spec front, I'd still take a Nexus5 over it, again, because of developer support. The only thing I'd really miss is the camera app and extra megapixels.

Lol that's why it confused me a bit because you started it but didn't give any details on your opinion besides the thread title. :P

I don't see myself getting rid of the lgog anytime soon. The communtiy is just too awesome.

Oh I agree, I'm probably going to cry when I go to get my upgrade, my mother has the LG G2 and father with the HTC One so I feel left out but this device and the amazing developers we have is what brought me to this device. I love it!

I've been putzing around with an HTC one since I dropped and cracked the screen on my OG..sense is not bad but I'm really disappointed with camera options...quality isn't health as bad as they say but options are junk compared to LG...I'm snatching the wife's g2 for a couple of weeks to see if it's worth just getting the OG fixed and sticking with that ...the S4 processor really holds up against these newer snapdragons in real world application, I don't care what the bench arms say

Yeah I have no experience with the the S4, but trust me, the lgog is worth it. I feel blessed to be a part of this community. That said - have fun with that G2!!!! And if you get your lgog fixed, we will be here waiting to embrace you into the fold!
