LG Lollipop GD580

[note: I'm showing the red one because that's the color I want]

This LG Lollipop has been released for about a year now, so naturally, the price has dropped. I wanted it when it first came out. But I had a phone already, so I didn't really need another one. And now my 3-yr old Sony Ericsson G900 is in pretty bad shape. One, it lags a lot. Two, it always restarts itself out of nowhere. Three, it's falling apart, literally pieces of it. Four, the battery only last for a day on standby when I have the brightness on 0%(even after I got a new battery). And the list goes on. Now I just want to compare this phone to my old phone.

Red stands for LG Lollipop.

Talk time: Up to 12 h(not anymore) Up to 3 h (assuming this will go down too)
Battery: Standard battery, Li-Ion 950 mAh Standard battery, Li-Ion 800 mAh
SAR(Specific Absorption Rate): 1.47 W/kg 1.09 W/kg [the lower the better]

What Lollipop doesn't have and G900 has:
Sticky Notes (I use this on a daily basis)
Chinese language (like texting in Chinese)(the one from H.K. does)
Touchscreen (not a must-have)

In terms of functionality, my g900 definitely beats the lollipop.
In terms of cuteness, lollipop is way over g900.

Some stuff about Lollipop:
You can customize the LED lights on the cover (the animation stuff)
When you flip over the phone, it silents it (when it's ringing I think)
You can choose from six colors that light up when you receive calls

The 2nd generation is available online, but it's really expensive, so I'm not considering it even though the colors are much cuter since they're pastel.
