Screenshot of the phone says it'll only take slightly less than 3.5 hours to fly from San Francisco to Taiwan. Distance from San Francisco to Taiwan is 6449 miles. I really doubt the plane is travelling 2000 Mph.

Flight schedules are normally shown in local times. That's crossing quite a few time zones, so that looks about right.

It says delayed, scheduled for 5:20, so it's really saying it's a 5:12 difference between takeoff and landing times. (Not considering the date, nor time zones.)

That's not far off. Looking at actual flights from SFO to TPE, most leave at something like 12:05am and land at 6:00am.

But of course you're crossing many times zones and the international date line, so that 14 hour flight is a 30 hour difference in local times. (Crossing the date line westbound sucks, but of course you get that time back on the return flight.)

LG - Strike 1
No LTE - Strike 2
T-Mo - Strike 3

I hope those rumors of a Galaxy Nexus 2 from Samsung are true cause I can't trust LG. Even if they have supposedly stepped up their game, cameras on the devices still suck as does call quality and they have quality control issues

I like the Nexus line of phones but I agree made by LG Sad sigh.... No LTE its understandable since Tmo doesnt offer it and available for Tmo it makes sense since it is made by LG lol. xD

I agree with Strike One, as for no LTE, HSPA+ 42 can be just as fast in certain areas, and T-Mobile will be running HSPA+ side by side LTE. As for strike 3, shouldn't that be the fact that it has no memory card? You can always get the device unlocked, but nothing you can do to it would give it a memory card.

You would think by now some company would have released an expandable memory device that plugs into the micro USB port. I'm just not a big fan of cloud storage, but I suppose it works in a pinch.

There is a microUSB workaround that is described very clearly.

This is the exact same phone as the Optimus G without the bloatware and a slight redesign of the case. The phonescoop review says it hangs with the GSIII and iPhone 5 as one of the best phones on the market and is the best phone ever built by LG. I'm also perplexed by the absolute need for LTE. Is 42 Mbps not fast enough? If you absolutely need LTE, get the Optimus G on ATT's network. By all accounts LG knocked it out of the park with this phone so I don't really understand the bashing.

I didn't mean to bash it with my comment. This phone is awesome - I'm ordering one tomorrow as soon as I can. This phone 16GB model for $350? THATS AWESOME.
