I have in hand at this time, one of these devices running ICS and is un-rooted. Please update the specs for this device
I've had it for over 1 year (2012) and had very little issues. Once in a while it restarts (perhaps from overheating). It is my first smartphone and I have been using it quite a lot. Messaging, taking pictures, reading (pdf,word,ppt), making notes, gps, stocks, weather, and so on. The battery life seams short (I am not sure how it is for other similar devices) but It lasts me a day. I turn read during my commute, i text at work (sorry boss) and watch some clips once in a while. I have dropped it once from a chair and had no problems. The only thing that anoys me is the fact that I can't mute the sound when I take pictures. Maybe it's just something I don't know about. In all, this has been and still is a very good device.
I have absolutely no problem with the phone I think my picture is awesome. It has turned off before and I pull out the battery for about 10 seconds and turn it back on that's only because I sometimes overheat it and I don't really turn it off. All and all the phone is actually amazing and its good if you plug it into your computer and update it through the LG site it takes no time and all and does it for you. I have had no problems with the phone I have even dropped it about 3 times and I don't have a case and it still works like a charm.
I've had this phone for about 2 weeks and already the speaket has broke... meaning I can't watch videos on it or listen to music and also it won't turn on half the time or when I plug it in to charge it it will shut off and won't turn on for about an hour later. Also when it does finally turn on it has like the red ring around the edges of the screen.. soooo unhappy with this phone like common 2 weeks old brand new and already its no good I'll be going back to my blackberry that's for sure... junk
m.abdalaziz, 10 Mar 2013hi guys i am Confused between LG Optimus 4G LTE and Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket they almos... morego for lg optimus lte...the screen is true hd.ips .if you have a phonewith 5ghz dualcore cpu and the scren is not good you will not feel as comfortable as the phone with 1 .5 gh single core with crystal clear hd display.like lg optimus lte....samsung screen always sucks...the colour tone looks fake..the red is too red...green is too green...lg optimus lte true hd ips shows you exactly the same as the y appear to normal eye.
Love the phone as well but cannot set a specific ringtone for a specific contact without changing the main ring tone...how come?/ and don\'t tell me it is in the edit contct window cause it aint on mine...
is it 5 point multi touch??is it good in games with a lot of combine tapping??thanks to anyone who can answer..
Terrible phone that feels rushed to market. I was sold this phone soon after its launch and it was toted as being a fast, long-lasting LTE phone.
Out of the box response time was good and battery life was around 6 hours with moderate use and no battery optimizer.
Since then I have had to send the phone for repair 3 times and have done the user reset 5 times to just keep it running. Battery life is now 4 hours with intermittent texting, low screen brightness, and battery optimizer.
I do not use apps, aside from the calendar, text, and email and still cannot stretch the battery life. Frequent crashing and freezing.
I got this phone about a month ago and it was blazing fast but now, it's just being as slow as my old ipod touch 2nd gen. I've play games like blood and glory but it tends to freeze every 30 seconds. Seem like the gpu is not enough for 720p because the same game works fine on my friend's Iphone 4. On top of that the phone has become slow even when it comes to typing. As i'm typing right now, the letters come out 1-2 seconds after I've pressed it and I've close all the apps that were running. I thinking about selling it to either buy a nexus 4 or an Iphone 5 because as my first experience with ICS and a one year-old superphone, I'm dissapointed. And also, LTE has never worked with my phone while my sim is LTE and it works in an Iphone 5.
I've had this phone about 6 months now. Right from day one I wasn't very happy with it. It freezes, a lot. 4-5 times most days and I'll have to pull the battery. Tends to freeze mostly if I open the calendar and occasionally as I'm trying to type a text or email.
As mentioned before, battery life isn't great. I dropped it from waist height a few weeks ago and the screen shattered... vs my old HTC which was indestructible.
Also occasionally refuses to send or receive messages. Sometimes I'll get a message 3 hours after it was sent, or my friends will experience a similar delay with a text I've sent.
Pros: it does take great pictures. Excellent speaker for those who dislike ear phones
Great phone. Obviously all androids battery consumption is awful but other than that its great. Can take some outstanding pictures as well.
I think that LG should stick to making fridges my phone has a very poor camera when I take a picture the flash goes off before the shutter result the kids have their eyes closed, about every 2 weeks my phone quits receiving calls as a indicator shows no service easy fix just remove the battery re-install and your good to go, often times when I try to answer I get call declined, by far the worst cel Iv'e owned 2 more years of this crap.
Great phone, on my my first one's, it's battery life was poor, and required charging every day. I got it replaced and now i only have to charge every second night, sometimes every third.
To save battery life follow these tips:
Juice defender helps
turning GPS, data, wifi, bluetooth...etc. off helps
lowering brightness helps (i keep mine at 0% if i know i will be inside, and 10-20% if i go outside and i can see my screen fine)
this phone can also be rooted quite easily, which makes it all the better.
