    Critics do love picking on that. :) The iphone is evidence that many people don't care, however, it's disappointing to see LG didn't go the same rout as the HTC One and make the base model 32GB to make up for it. There's a feature called USB OTG (On The Go) that allows the phone to host a USB flash drive as an option. Perhaps LG included that.

    Also, Android 4.3 is really only useful for the low-energy bluetooth from what I've heard (someone can correct me), and considering they have to test the phone for months before release they probably didn't have an option to include it. 4.2.2 is a good choice.

    Looks like an awesome phone. I never liked LGs, but this is good.

    Looks to be a good one. Let's see how it stacks up against the S4 and One once it's released though

    Hard to tell from the photos, but it looks like the display edges are curved (like the N4). That's very, very nice. :D

    It looks pretty slick but I'll stick with mid range phones.
