    "3000R arc, whatever that means"

    If it's anything like the nomenclature curved TV and curved desktop monitor manufacturers have adopted, that means "a curve with a radius of 3000mm".

    Yap, that's it. Reply

    As a comparison, the Flex 2 does a 700R arc. So curve with radius of 700mm. Reply

    C'mon LG! All that showing-offs without any improvement in design. How about putting that display right in the center and front stereo speakers? Reply
  • sonny73n - Tuesday, April 28, 2015 - link

    BTW this G4 is one of the ugliest designs I've seen. No way I'm gonna put that ugly thing on my good looking face ;) Reply
  • Notmyusualid - Tuesday, April 28, 2015 - link

    Yep - gorgeous phone, but nobody is having my money again, until I have front facing speakers, and real buttons again(as opposed to on-screen type buttons). Oh, and microSD card slot too.

    Get that right, and my money is yours!

    Did I miss anything about being waterproof?
