Thanks dear, but after rooting i'll also have to flash .kdz file b/c people did mention that Phone willn't start fully ! Can I do this ?
Root , then flash kdz if required , delete Korean apps , dialer and sms limit then again UNROOT ?

You just need to root it, which is just a one-click method. You can then remove the sms character limit and you'll still get OTA update if any comes up. Plus the camera lens gets scratched a bit since it pokes out but nothing other then that. No signal problems or anything of that sort and web browsing is literally blazing fast
Had no money to buy GPro and g2 wasn't launched at that time. So went with this beast.
Hope to see this beauty will run JB 4.3 or jump to KK 4.4 in the next few months.

* any design flaw? like dust in front camera?
* any signal problem? if handled from specific sides/dimensions?(GSM or wi-fi)
* full working Browsing? (means each n ever site including heavy customized flash features?)
thanks in advance!
I bought this phone last month and so far its great! If you're worried about battery life, the phone has a power saving mode plus an 'eco mode' which prolongs battery power. If that is not enough for you, you could simply download an app like Battery Doctor or Juice Defender to further improve battery life. As with every phone, heavy use such as playing a game like 'Real Racing' or 'Asphalt 7 or 8' will generate heat and thus reduce battery life. The camera is great for the average user, the responsiveness on the phone is great, even with power saver on. The display is crisp, even in direct sunlight. My phone restarted a few times on a few occasions after I downloaded an update from the LG software program. However, I did a factory reset and it works perfectly now. As for people who report the back glass breaking, its simply about being careful with your phone. Depending on your lifestyle, this phone may not be for you as it should be handled with care tbh. All in all, its a great phone. Personally I have no regrets buying it. This is my 2 cents.
i bought optimus g last may...and i encountered lot of problems....
1.re-start several times...
2.camera is bad....
3.video recording for several minutes it turn blurred...
4.when drop the glass easily broke...front/back...
5.using 4 cores ...battery drain fast at 100% for about less than 2 hrs.of internet browsing...
No mobile is perfect dear. But at its price range, Optimus G easily beats any other phone. If you ve extra bucks, you may choose Gpro, S4, G2, Z1....

Hi, anyone experienced occasional restarts with this phone? Mine restarts sometimes and the date and time zone changes when it does. A few days ago it did it twice in one day. Has anyone experienced this?
