its a great phone ,but l hate the way it consumes the battery and how hot it becomes when using it
user, 26 May 2015Use this android, it's never freez or lagg.. https://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=p880Cyanogen works faster than 4.1.2 stock, thats true but it is completely unstable! I getting errors while using phone for calling, simple aplications and even when I try take a photo. I cant play any 3d game on CM too. After 1/2 year clean stock worked pretty fine with small lags but now, when I have this phone longer even clean stock is unusuable - long freezes everyday. I tried disable MLT, restarting to factory settings, cleaning cache but still got big performance problems.
i had a problem with this phone it always hangs with any program always gets very hot and the three bottoms of back and settings and main menu some times works and sometimes no can any body help me in the solution of that problem
Had this phone since 2013, still perfect. Any body having issues probably had a defective model or something. Using it right now. Internet perfect, calls, perfect. I have other phones.

About customizaion, I find this phone very good after switching from the original ROM to the one called "FluidROM_Gtype".
BAD POINTS in general:
-many people during calls has told me that audio quality was not very good
At first, it was slow and not that nice of an experiance. BUT, I really worked hard on this phone by customizing and optimizing it and now its AMAZING! It's exactly like the smartphones from today. BASIC POINT: All you have to do is work on it and it will be amazing.
The phone is a waste of money looks nice but thats it lg mobiles are rubbish will never buy another.
I've bought it 2012, its a disaster. Freezes all the time, can't use internet and call at the same time - call is lost ... I gave up. Bought Samsung. Shame for LG, I don't believe they can issue good reliable smart phone.

you cant compare it to other phones released now but in its prime time it was the best Phone availeble.

I have modded it and now is rooted with Vanir 4.3.1 plus Kodak kernel. Managed to bring Antutu benchmark to 21000 but the overall experience is still negative. I came to the conclusion that LG has realized that this phone hardware is a dog (hdw bugged) and therefore decided to drop the sw support. LG NEVER AGAIN.

Bought this little fellow since it was on a huge discount and there was little at that price range that could compete ($125!).
Came with ICS 4.0.3 out of the box and promptly upgraded it to JB 4.1.2 and so far things are good. When not loaded it's quite smooth and apps load in a satisfactory manner, with a few things running in the background things slow down though understandably. Only issue is the battery lasts quite little though I was kind of expecting that cause I know of the Tegra 3 and how it is.
Overall for the price I paid, can't beat it. Is it perfect? Far from it but with alternatives being a Lumia 535 or a cheap Huawei or Lenovo in my country but with the advantage of a former flagship.

Proximity sensor stopped working after 1yr.. Volume down button requires more force than before.. I dropped it several times, but once it was on the wood floor, from one meter of height, and screen cracked, altough it works the same as before.
It is also very laggy, and I restart it every day. When I have a call, it is like lost.. it is so slow to answer.. I have a lot of problem rooting it also, and I don't know why..
