However in V20B HK/CN LG themselves increased the protection activation temperature so high that it will only kick in after several rounds of Real Racing 3.

GLONASS use is proven in jellybean. I suggest everyone to clarify in the Q&A section of the forum. Developers are more than willing to help.

the thermal protection isnt there for no reason.

and glonass support is still unconfirmed i believe.
the sattelites are found (just like in ics) but its not sure if they are used as far as im aware. not that it matters noone needs them anyway.

> In reply to Mohamed Ibrahim @ 2013-05-02 01:04 from fvEt - click to readtheres lots of questions you need to andwer to yourself when you buy a phone.



how long do i want to use my phone?

-less then 1 year = buy a cheap one as technology goes fast and in 6 months a high end phone now becomes a midrange phone
-less then 2 years = no worries
-more then 2 years = look for a phone with replacable battery

how often do i take pictures and make movies?

-not often at all = 8gb rom with no sd is fine for you
-few times a day = 8gb with sd or 16 gb without sd
-all the time is 16gb with sd or 32+gb internal

do i play games or am i a gamer (heavy games)?

-i play simple games = no worries every phone with a 4.2inch+ screen can do that now
-i want to play heavy games like shadowgun or need fr speed = buy a quad core because they have a better gpu but do realize gaming sucks batterys dry in 2 to 3 hours.

do i prefer a brand?

-no = look at designs specs and price/preformance and make your choice.
-a little = why do you prefer specific brands and is your information stil accurate or is it outdated and should you start to consider other brands
-yes = stick with your brand your to far gone for me to help you :P


what are my demands regarding android updates?

-i dont care as long as everything works and theres no bugs.
-i like the big android updates but am not in a rush
-i want them as soon as possible because im a hipster


do i want to use custom roms or not?

-no = no need for the phone of your choice to be bootloader unlocked (this is NOT the same as rooted)
-yes = bootloader must be unlocked.

am i a heavy medium or light user?

-light = battery isnt a great deal as light use barely uses any juice.
-medium user = make sure you get a good 2/3 hour active use a day out of your phone (screen on time)
-heavy user = your shit out of luch modern day phones use battery like a junky snorts coke. one minute its there the other its gone.


then theres a few basics that i think are wise to consider.
if your a heavy or medium user but you do not game or do anything intensice other then chatting and browsing a LOT do but a dual core instead of a quad core.
quad cores are cool and all that but they use abour 30 to 40% more juice which means shorter battery life.
i have this quad core now and dont get me wrong i love it but a dual core would have bin better for me as i dont need the power i have in my hands now and who doesnt want 30% more battery life.
so before you jump in and buy something go ask yourself all the questions you can ask yourself and write down what feature is the minimum for that and the most high end feature you desire like storage because you take a LOT of photos or a quad core because you want heavy gaming or a 5 inch screen for typing is gonna decide what range phone you want.
high end range with small screen or a mid ragen dual core with a massive screen thers options enough sit down take the time and buy what you want to buy.

theres no real bad phones just overprised phones and bargains.

i cant think of anything that miht cause this because phones dont really have capacitators or anything i believe.

after some googling i get even more confised because this also happens on some iphones and blackberrys which obviously dont run android.

did you by any chance limit background apps in dev settings?
it might be that starting the phone after a while might cause android to kill the launcher for some reason making it have to redraw and that takes a second.

would you mind going to apps then middle tab and tell me what apps are currently active (where lg keyboard is) so i can check a theory i have.
also if you have the weatjer app activated let me know if you have it on autosync or manual sync.


anyway if you use the build in backup app you shouldnt lose any setting app contact or appdata.

if you meen that when you turn on the phone it doesnt see the sim (only emergency calls) either the sim is bad or not inserted correctly.
be aware that nothing stops you from inserting the sim the wrong way with this phone so check and double check.
also some networks take a while to connect.
im on dutch KPN shite network and it takes my phone about 2 min to connect to the network for some reason.

if so that might be the problem.
if not have you tried making a backup using the buildin app and doing a factory reset?

> In reply to hunny chaudhary @ 2013-04-30 09:04 from Khwb - click to readsay your charger gives out 1200 mah which is the case with our factory charger.
the cable has some resistance which makes the efficient charing speed be about 1000 to 1050 mah.
now when you use the phone the phone has peaks of usage of 575 mah this means the phone is charging at that time with arround 500 mah (as the rest is directly used by the phone) and arround 500 mah is considered a slow charge.
so thats what could be the cause of it showing slow charge :)
on android 4.03 its not showing that but it is actualy also charging slower when using the phone as half the power is used :)

if your phone is not then check your apps theck your wifi signal and check your 3g signal as the ploblem lays with those things 99.99% of the time the other 1% is a faulty battery which is verry unlikely.
