Short answer yes.
Long answer YEEEEEEEEEEEEES.
Optimus g is better in everything but camera.
Anyway camera isnt much worse, just a little bit.

IMHO yes, it's great value for such little price, but camera sucks badly. Other things are still very good, screen is one of the best so far and desing looks as elegant as 2 years ago. Of course it all depends on your preferences.

If the choice is between these two devices, I'd say definitely yes. The things against the OG are the camera (but honestly, it's quite decent, and not THAT bad as you might hear from some people -- my picture quality improved greatly after just cleaning the lens cover from the inside ), and the lack of an SD card slot. In every other aspect, technically and aesthetically, OG is a better phone, IMO. I love my OG!

"When I am given a choice of two options, I pick the third one". Frankly, N4 suggestion is questionable, to say the least, unless you are a die-hard Android purist. I personally didn't own an N4, but based on what I hear from people I know, everybody who had a chance to compare the two side by side, prefer the OG (not talking about the retail price here, of course). N5, however, is just not a fair comparison to either OG, or SGS3, or N4...

Thanks guys,Nexus 4 has only 16gb storage which is worse for me so i was looking for SGS III but its quiet expensive for me.

Lg OG is quiet bad in camera but I hearded that its camera quality can be improved by flashing AOSP Roms(Cyanogenmod,Carbon etc).Is that right ?

Since nexus 5 is so cheap, i would save up for it. Camera is good, if you dont have sun in front of camera...Light ruins every photo. No matter how strong or weak it is, it will ruin every photo you want to take indoors. Outdoors its okaai. In terms of gaming, this lil dude runs everything i want. It definately beats Samsung galaxy s3 in everything, but camera and sound. Display is amazing, and looks are nice too.

About slow-motion videos..idk. Stock camera doesnt have this function.

In short, it all depends from your budget and the price you can get the Optimus G for.

Gaming on the LG Optimus G is perfect! It supports medium to high graphics. From what I've seen, because I've played a lot of games on it, every game runs smooth with good graphics, like Real Racing 3 and like about a month ago, I started playing Blitz Brigade. Great games and good graphics. Price per performance, I find the LG Optimus G perfect! I am now on Kitkat made from LG. Stable, smooth, no lag/slowdowns at all and no crashes. Camera improved a lot since Kitkat. And you get 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, Adreno 320(Still great). It can run any emulator at full speed, except for Dolphin Emulator(Stays black and then crashes because of bad drivers) and PPSSPP(depending on the game).

And no.. It doesn't have Slow-Motion Video recording.. It has the capabilities, because the Xiaomi Mi2 can record up to 120fps at 480p and 720p at 60-90fps and has the same Qualcomm APQ8064. I mean, it should.. But it doesn't
