I rooted it already, removed the remaining japanese apps, and took Nandroid backup just in case if needed. Its faster than before. And I also bought LG QuickWindow case for it. This is the best phone. I used Nexus 5 and Samsung S4 before but this is the best in terms of Sound quality (Dolby mobile) and battery backup.
LG L23 Japanese version costs half the LG G Flex international version. On Android 4.2, its running every app without any lag. Battery backup is very good. Overnight battery drops only 6%. And i read somewhere in comments that Android 4.4 update decreased the battery backup of LG Flex. So it is better on Android 4.2. GSMarena itself tested the device on Android 4.2 and got the endurance rating of 97 hours. So No complains from my side.

no lg logo on front so it seems like a duplicate china model.. instead I will suggest you to have samsung a7 or e7 would be a better option.
don't say thanks now ;-)
RamV, 14 Apr 2015Hi As of now, there is no way to upgrade to 4.3 or above for LGL23U r one of them screwed by AU Japan, AU has no plan for upgrading this device yet. Though the phone spec is great quad, 2gb ram still the AU service is primitive limited to android 4.2.2 it sucks. Tell ppl not to buy scrap from AU Japan mobiles.

I am not worried about not having LG logo.
It is much better to root LGL23 and flash the only available custom ROM, which is Sphinx ROM.
You will loose root, but this is 100X better than LGL23 AU KDDI version.
there is no lg logo in the japanese version ,haw we know the brand of phone ,its like local chinese model,stupid japan
Go to settings -> About Phone -> Software Information -> Software Version : If it LGL23* then it is japan, else it is from USA or Europe version.
If it LGL23, there is no Kitkat available as of now
