The LG G2 was announced at an event in New York at the very beginning of August and when we met with LG to get a hands-on with the new super phone they advised that Optus would launch the phone in October/November.

The press release from the launch of the new 4G Plus network this morning revealed this one line throwaway :

The LG G2 will be out in November

While we still don’t have any details on the pricing or plans apart from the outright price of $699, or a release date – we’ve requested more information – at least we can let October pass by without expecting the phone to arrive then.

Instead we can all concentrate on the upcoming Nexus 5 which seems almost assuredly based on the LG G2 according to recent leaks, the major difference of course will be the Nexus 5 will launch with Android 4.4 and be announced in October followed by a November launch if the last two Nexus launches are anything to go by.

LG G2 or Nexus 5, which will you be more inclined to purchase?
