I'm using this phone for a year now.
It came with 2 year-warranty when I bought it, and I haven't used it.
I installed minimum apps on it to preserve battery life, and yes - if you turn off wireless, and enable battery-savings features, it does hold for a day - I charge it for 83%-88% and it holds till 5%-30% (depending on how much I use its apps).
It came with KitKat and still does. regarding Lillipop updates - It's not officially supported for most sub-models (Korean version does), but I suppose you can upgrade it unofficially to Lollipop 5.0 or even to 5.04.
Regarding the "gets stuck" issues - Yes, this phone got stuck a few times, especially with the combination of a hot day, and many apps running (even after firmware upgrade from LG) , BUT I found the cause -
as many recommended, it turns-out it was the plastic-cover that I bought for it. When I took it off,it didn't get stuck no matter how much it was hot.
So, if you can, buy a ventilated cover (if possible to find), or buy a cover and take it off when you need heady use/hot day. Not using a cover at all? Generally I don't recommend it, but for your consideration.
Oh, and I bought it a glass-screen protector - works OK, and doesn't affect visuals or other issues.
Where to order the new battery cover? Any ideas ? Cant find it even on ebay etc
Is the phone available for use in the USA, it so what companies will take it.

That person commented half a year ago. The phone might not be available anymore this year. I read a few previous comment. They said it was imported from S.Korea to Philipines. Maybe it got sold out last year.

Anonymouses, 11 Oct 2015Uninstall and reinstall it using wifi network.I've done that but it's still won't let click Snapshoot on the menu. I bought mine from overseas website. It's unlocked without HK warranty. The phone works but Snapshoot doesn't work. Only AKA Space and Toons are working fine.
Does anyone know how to fix the Come In widget where I was trying to click Snapshoot on the menu but it tells me "Download app: Apps must be downloaded to perform this action. Additional charges may be apply to connect via mobile networks. Download?.".. But it's already downloaded the apps but the Snapshoot doesn't let me click or take a picture.
