    1080p on a 5.2" display is sharper than any retina display, 2K is an overkill on a phone from my point of view and you have to pay for that display top buck!

    "magazine print quality" they call it - if I remember correctly o_O

    most people with money are frugal. That's why they have lots of money.;)

    Let's recognize the facts. G3 has better specs. OPO is extremely great for its value.

    If buying without contact, no doubt OPO is the better choice.

    But if you have a choice and is willing to recontract, you can buy G3 at say $US 399, which also has a higher eventual trade in value. With OPO it is likely you can't get it with a contract, even if you want to.

    Do I still want OPO? Yes of course. Do I think G3 is better, it is - fact.

    -Better screen - YES
    -Better RAM - SAME
    -Better camera - Not confirmed
    -Better software - NO
    -Better build quality - Definitely not (just like the G2: squeaking, cracking..)
    -Better battery life - Not confimred
    -Better looking (design wise) - Meh... I like the stealthier look of the 1+
    -Better CPU - SAME

    Now... why is it better?

    OPO has better software - most definitely! Cyanogenmod is great. Though my experience with CM camera is not as good.

    I said specs, so:
    -Better screen - YES
    -Better RAM - SAME
    -Better camera - Yes. Real OIS, laser focus
    -Better front camera - NO. OPO has higher res front camera on paper.
    -Better software - NO. Not specs, but I agree CM is better
    -Better build quality - Yes. Look at the size and the thin bezels mate....
    -Better battery life - Not confimred, but it has replaceable battery, and it is likely there will be extended battery available like S4
    -Better looking (design wise) - Not specs, and it is subjective
    -Better CPU - SAME
    -Wireless charging - Yes.
    -SD Card expasion - Yes.

    Like I said, if you throw the cost into the picture OPO will win.
    But if money is not an issue, or you can recontract, it may not be the same.

    Yes, my bad. Not all are specs but they do influence one to buy the darn thing!
    That's solely my opinion in terms of looks and other crap placed there... and I do not, ever, buy a device at contract. Only full price.

    Now... if I get the 64GB unit, FOR ME, a SD card is pointless (nowadays everyone has a micro-usb cable laying around), wireless charging - not interested to carry the thing around me as not many have a wireless charger+nothing beats the cable charger at charging speeds!
    Replaceable battery... used this concept once.. it's annoying for me.
    On the camera part... the G2 has OIS as well and it's not that great, plus, when I owned it, the shutter speed was AWFUL!! (don't know if 4.4.x fixed all of that) and laser focus... I'll wait for a full review to see what it really does!

    I always buy phones without contracts. A custom launcher does a lot to pimp your home screen, but that's all. I personal don't like the UI.
