Better not upgrade to JB, free RAM will be lesser by 150-250MB. Wait for the firmware update before updating to JB. IMHO
[deleted post]plus its a dual core not a quad core.
plus its a amoled which simply isht true HD die to the lack of sub pixels.
so spec wise its still a worse phone and here its only 10 euro cheaer then the 4x hd.
and yeah windows 8 just aint cutting it for now the store needs a massive boost in usefull aps.
[deleted post]I am glad you mentioned Ativ S. For about a week now, I am thinking of change my 4x for Ativ. Just out of couriosity because I never used a WP. My affraid is not lack of apps because I guess it has all that metters and I am not a big game fan. I am affraid that WP will become borring to me in a week because of lack of personalisation options... What do you think guys? Did someone escaped from WP to Android? Or Android to WP? Again, I love my 4x, I am just courious... :)

to upgrade to JB you need to attatch it to the pc so as long as you update OTA (over wifi) you will only get to the latest version of ICS.
Is it possible to upgrade the software on the phone but not upgrade to Jelly bean? Just to improve ICS so to say?

i personaly think that LG is the only remaining company that understands display quality.
Samsung, sony, toshiba, philips, HTC all dont seem to understand realism but prefer oversaturation and to high a contrast which to a perfectionist is just ugly.
on top of that this phone is just dirt cheap.
its 284 euro here where the one x 32 gb is over 120 euro more! and the S3 is 102 euro more and there is nothing they can do that the LG cant do.
this phone is just toomuch is just that people do not like lg but for me lg is far better than samsung in all ways
dan, 31 May 2013Should I get this phone or the sony xperia T?Why just choose from these 2 why not the nexus 4
Sudhanscorp1, 30 May 2013Hi All after the Jelly Bean update my phone seems to lose battery overnight on standby mode. A... moredisable maps, google+ ,streetview, sync and so on.
everything you dont need directly or the phone does not need to function should be disabled.
if you use maps to drive sometimes enable it when you need it and disable it after as its a battery drain.
for more info on JB go here: http://forum.xda-developers.co...y.php?f=1651
i dont use JB and prolly wont so cant really help you with JB specifics.
i refuse to promote JB untill someone donates me a phone so i can see its better or worse untill then 4.03 ftw.

try that app if your not already.
it disables 2 cores giving you up to 1 hour an 15 minutes extra battery time and the phone remains smooth as it doesnt touch the gpu cores only cpu cores.
Anonymous, 29 May 2013Is it worth buying for 290 euro?can you find a better phone for the same price or less? NO can you find a etter phone specwise for more sure you can the optimus g, optimus g pro, the nexus4, xperia z, htc one are all better in some ways and worse in others but they have a while different budged :)
as russel said check your demands see which phones fit that demand then check the price and the flaws they have.
im sure any phone will siffice once you get the hang of it.
im verry happy with my 4x HD and theres only 2 things i would change.
1. make SD card work for apps (this workd on no other phone past android 4.01 so this one isnt an exception).
2. produce the tegra 3 on 28nm rather then 40 soits more efficient and the people whiting that it gets hot will stop as there would be less heating.
sadly this is nvidias fault not lg's.
other then that its a pretty flawless phone and id take it anyday.
Hi All after the Jelly Bean update my phone seems to lose battery overnight on standby mode. Approx usage is 20-23%. Can anybody recommend how to save the battery usage?
Anonymous, 29 May 2013Is it worth buying for 290 euro?I can not say yes or no, it is your decision. I think it is right for me. Deciding factors were 1. Mini sim 2. removal battery 3. SD expansion 4.screen size,but feels good in the hand 5.android 4 & better. 6. very good build quality 7. Price.
I don't need four cores,just think,I came from Nokia phones. But it is nice!
I wish you well.
Sorry Pino, I misspelled your name,had a long day.
pino, 28 May 2013was it paid apps or apps with adds? apps with adds should simply be avoided because the add... moreSadly, I have to admit they were free apps. Puzzles games for when you are sitting all day in a hospital waiting room as I was today. I agree completely with Piano and Bobby. Most people are responsible themselves for today's phones problems. Yet they are so quick to badmouth the phone . My 4x is my 5th smartphone and the best. Came from Nokia. All got great battery life except n900 my next favorite.
Bran, 28 May 2013As I undestand from the comments this phone is full of problems so it might not be much recommendedno theres lots of people calling out problems thats not really a problem.
most problems are created by the use because they install crappy apps or disable stuff that shouldnt be disabled.
there is no hardware issue with this phone and every feature works as intended (atleast on 4.03 i have not updated and will nog because there is no need on v10h).
the only problem i have with this phone is that the screen seems to shrink haha.
at first you think WOW its massive but you get used to it so fast you want bigger and bigger :P
the video and foto focus issue never was a issue as you could simply download 1 of many camera apps and they would work fine. but its since bin fixed on the build in also.
the camera sounding like there is something lose in it isnt a hardware foult its the actualy lens that should be moving to focus and its only noticible if you knock the phone which is a stupid thing to do anyway :)
and every other problem there is had a cause or reason that is explainable and not the phones fault :)
everyone talking this phone down doesnt own it havent handled it or owns a galaxy s3 or onex and are upset they payed 100 to 300 bucks more for a phone with the same capabilities but a worse screen. if your unsure go to the store reboot it and try it out its smooth (no jellybean needed) its stable apart from some launcher redraws but that takes less then a second and isnt a bad thing per se (clears some ram) and it has more free ram then the competition which means less is preloaded resulting in less cpu cycles needed for actions which in turn is better for the battery.
the only reaso i want other phones is because i want a bigger screen otherwise im more then happy with my 4x hd :)
and everyone wants better batterytime but in reality the only way to get that is getting a smaller screen and going back to 800 mhz single core.
fast soc's = huge power drain its a fact of life.
just put a powerpack in your backpack or jacker and you have a portable 20.000mah or even 50.000mah battery with you to charge on the go.
i bought a 20.000 mah version vor 12 euro which should give me over 30 hours screen on time (wanted it for when i go carp fishing :P)
