If you dont like the LG skin, then dont use it.
Stock LG phone was ok - nothing too bad
Installing Cyanogenmod 7.2 is the best thing you can do to this unit - I still use it daily
I've got Runkeeper, Whatsapp, GOSMS, default launcher as well as the other default apps and it still works fine. MinMemoryManager allows me to constantly have (user defined) 100MB RAM free to avoid lag.
Unnoffical Jellybean (TonyP 1.04 with Kowalski Kernel) runs ok too, although there feels like more emphasis on performance of the OS rather than the apps - so i switched back.
Have yet to flash a KitKat ROM
The word "crap" is the best description for this phone. It's very slow, lagging. May unexpectedly reboot. User experience - forget it. And watch your ears when plugged earphones as this shitty device will not automatically reduce the volume. Do not recommend to buy it to anyone. I'm so disappointed that I would never buy any LG device no matter it would be a TV or a washing machine.

Using this phone for more than 2 years now.
Only way to get more from this phone is to root it.
I will recommend Nova ICS build for the phone.
Also install suitable launcher for you.
Install swapper to get better speed "https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.azasoft.free.swapper"

You can get this battery from your local ebay web.
