Verdict

At half the price of the iPhone, clearly the most exciting smartphone launch this year - here's hoping LG can bring the phone down to India soon, and keep prices level. With a larger screen, incredibly thin build, even more improved camera optics, and a uni-body metal design, and the almost twice as fast A6 processor it's a considerably improved iPhone and gives lots of reasons for the loyal fans to upgrade to the new phone
