I only owned it 2 days,, when I started to put apps on it, I now realize that the device has a lot of issues mostly on software, sms 80 ch, apps compatibility etc, and on hardware It is not compatible to my local network, when I connect to internet it only have a G sign means GPRS only, very slow internet unlike my other phone which bought localy have an H on internet.
the filipina maid of koreans sold it to me because maybe korean trashed and I bought it at low price.
Pilipinas, 22 Nov 2014Did you use the phone personally? :)Not personally owned but I've seen and handled it because in southern China all the grey markets always get Korean phones in by the boat full. Not very often to find new Korean phones in Hong Kong but the second hand shops there always seem to have A LOT, maybe all the maids bring them over and get rid of them?
My advice stands; don't buy Korean phones unless you're in Korea. I'm not surprised or phased that my comments attracted a proud F350 owner (you). You better hope the Koreans keep using their F350's otherwise you can say good-bye to future OS updates because the carriers won't bother to waste resources to issue one.
I've been using f350s which is the korean version, It's very awesome!!!.. just putting bad comment to lower down the price of this korean version phone?? not really KOREAN Version is always better than international version because the origin country of this phone does not cost/restrict licensing such as lte's so they can put anything at no cost.
ssaw, 19 Nov 2014So you are saying that , its a useless ? then shall i exchange it to G3 korian version? did you not bother to read the previous comment?
Don't buy Korean versions unless you live in Korea!
Angry Mobile Nerd, 19 Nov 2014I don't recommend buying any Korean phone unless you're using it in Korea. The Korean versi... moreIndeed, my friend buy S5 Korean version and it's just Suck in my country and he wants to sell it.

The Korean versions are cheaper for a reason, you know. While still very usable, they also can come with a lot of headaches leaving you regretting not buying the international version in the first place. Some models the LTE won't work when roaming, some models no Edge data, some models limited SMS function, and then a ton of Korean bloatware and hardware (DMB tv) you can't use outside of Korea just to name a few.
So you are saying that , its a useless ? then shall i exchange it to G3 korian version?
ssaw, 18 Nov 2014why? f350 bestok you're hopeless. You've obviously already bought a F350 and are now seeking validation that you made the correct purchase -- unfortunately, you did not. This wouldn't be your first smartphone by any chance, would it?
It's just not limited to the F350 or even Korean phones, but when you buy any carrier branded phone from one country and use it on another carrier in another country you will run into problems, get limited functionality and band support, and some features or apps just won't work unless on their native carrier's network. And on top of all of that, support and software updates are usually issued by the carrier -- not the manufacturer.
ssaw, 18 Nov 2014but we can convert in to an international versionNo, you cannot, otherwise all the shops would already be doing this.
Sometimes people come out with a custom rom that helps fix some of the problems with Korean phones but once you go that route you won't get anymore official OTA updates from LG.
Trust me it's not worth it, unless you are in Korea otherwise get the D838.
ssaw, 17 Nov 2014F350 ,are there problems in U+ korian versionRead my post the 3rd one after this about the F350. Don't buy it.
Anonymous, 17 Nov 2014what is the difference between f350 model to d838? planning to buy but it is only second hand ... moreThe F350 is the Korean version and usually comes in 3 carrier branded versions S, K, or L. I'm going to make this easy; don't buy the F350. I'm sure it's cheaper but it won't be worth the trouble. Korean bloatware, shorter SMS character limits on some models, and a useless DMB TV antenna that will get snagged in your pocket all the time are just some of the problems associated with Korean phones. The Korean carrier branded firmwares usually have less settings options than international versions, too (and no, you can't flash international firmware onto F350).
Korean phones outside of Korea = bad. Avoid at all costs even if it means paying a little more for a D838.
Buy the D838.
what is the difference between f350 model to d838? planning to buy but it is only second hand here in the philippines and these are the models available. thank you for your answers.
