After lookin all round over Lg's current phones i can truly say i just couldn't see a perfect phone. However reviews testify to the superiority of this opt.G I've also read a lot abt it on the internet, now i hav very few questns; (1st) I want to know from real users how good is the batterylife with heavy use and lots of gaming? Can it last upto 8hrs like my old nokia N8? I'm very concerned about batterylife and this is the major reason i didn't go for the opt.4xhd. Its batterylife is pure joke;3hrs! (2nd) reviews online claim this phone's audio output is weak because the speaker is tiny, is this true? What about sounds through earphone, Is it loud enough? Been waiting for a perfect android phone since 2012 but seems none is forthcoming. It's either it is oversized or it'll have compromises just as the nexus 4and opt.g. So i'm choosing this cos frankly i don't remov my batery at frm my N8 and i didn't see any reason to.
The samsung galaxy s3 could've been a fair choice but i just hate the overall design and largely how samsung hypes their hardwares and neglects the most essential aspects design&screen. They're just after money...
Realistically, in my country Lg phones remain expensive several months after launch and this shows me how durable they are. Word!!! no fanboyism! gimme a reply!

I Have Optimus G E973 from Bell, and i'm having an issue, loving the new qslide feature with keyboard, BUT, for soem reason the LS keyboard adn the ANdroid Keyboard have both removed the Vocie typing key and even though its in the settings it does nt show up on the keyboards at all.. his is not a huge problem, but my daughter uses that feature as she cant type due to health issues, and it's just weird that the feature not working, hoping someone can give some insight into this, I thank-you all kindly for your time..

Just used this phone for a few days now. Wow its the best phone i have ever used. Forget iphone 5 (quite childish) compared to this monster. The interface and fluidity is the best in the business. No lag no slow down nothing its that good. I remember wanting this phone last year when it was announced when iphone 5 came out. Its taken a while but boy has it been worth it. Root the phone for even more speed and fluidity. I am in love...the perfect phone 5 stars

Memory card slot is not necessary as long as the internal storage is large enough at 64GB. Iphone users never complained about lack of card slot. What I wanted for this phone is to have at least 3000mah battery.

Should i charge only when battery depletes completely?
or just charge when needed? Which will cause more harm to the battery? Thank you for answering.

The optimus g including the pro use slimport instead of mhl. Slimport is better than mhl. You get full 1080 at 60 fps vs mhl 1080 at 30fps, also you don't need to supply power for the slimport adapter.

Had the phone for about 3 days now, sold my HTC ONE X and picked up the OPTIMUS G (E971 version). FANTASTIC phone. Didn't really need to upgrade from the HTC ONE X but the price was right. The OPTIMUS G is a beautiful phone and works like a charm. Blazing fast. The only downside for me is the lack of an Micro SD slot...but may not be an issue for others.
