    Which is better?
    LG motion has a 3.5" screen.
    Ics.
    Dual core.
    1gb of ram.

    ZTE anthem has a 4" screen.
    Ics.
    Dual core.
    But 1/2 gb of ram.

    So the more RAM does make a difference?

    More ram= more available space for apps that are running. That's why my phone crashes a lot. I have too many apps...

    So do you guys think the motion can handle games like nova 3? Or will the screen be too small?

    Depends. How small are your hands?

    The key with Android is community. So which is more likely to get a good dev following, LG or ZTE?


    I don't really know a whole lot about ZTE, but LG phones seem to do okay in that regards.



    Otherwise, all the specs say the Motion is by far the superior phone except when looking at screen size.

    i think the ZTE looks better (physically), but as the first video review someone posted, it doesn't seem to be a good phone, too many bugs/laggy/etc.

    This.

    Also, another thing to look at is total inner storage...make sure it's 8gb instead of 4...enough space to hold lots of apps...+ not having to constantly migrate data/backups/downloads/ to external....

    the S3 can have max 16gb, and coming with 2gb ram....which are real pluses, for the same reasons....

    Lol, it was a joke. The motion will be a 3.5 screen which is not that suitable for gaming.

    Isn't the I phones screen 3.5?
    And a lot of people game on it.

    Open source, cheaper phones, cheaper service?

    A lot of people think they game on it. ;)


    But yeah, it isn't impossible. But screen size is a major factor in gaming. The bigger the screen the more control you get. Being able to see things better helps also.

    Damn I guess ill wait for a better phone. With a +4" screen with 1gb Ram, ics , and dual core. S3 will be too expensive for me. :/

    Yeah, I'm in the same boat. Although I may just settle for the Motion or Anthem. The Motion with a 4" screen would be perfect.

    Looks like they are doing low-end and mid-range releases, then a small gap, S3 then another gap, then high-end. There are still two more phones to get released, but they aren't on the roadmap that ends with the S3 release so not sure if they are getting slipped in or going for early 2013 with those.

    That's why I invested in a Motorola xoom. Its a Google device :D so it gets android updates!!!

    Yeah but I need a phone. I might just settle for the motion. Unless someone gets a leak of those one mid range phones.

    Those reviews weren't even that. They were just hand's on with an unfinished product. Performance might have improved a bit since the phone from when was announced up until now.

    ZTE phones are not too bad. Had a Warp on Boosts once. Worked pretty good, even on crappy 3g. But LG is a more stable manufacturer in my opinion. I think they're gonna be some serious competition with Samsung as time goes by.

    The Motion is defiantly a better built phone , but i can't say ZTE makes a bad product either - I've had 1 or 2 ZTE scores come back and compared to 100's of admires ....

    The LG Motion can defiantly handle some gaming , I loaded up Asphalt 7 (smooth as butter game play , no lag or anything ... my Moto RAZR Couldn't even do that)
