sean, 16 Dec 2012hey im from canada, i got this phone from ebay. DONT BUY IT if you are canadian!, bell told me... moreyou choose the wrong phone, theres 2 versions of the LG Optimus G. One is the LS970 which is CDMA (Sprint) or the E970 (AT&T). you would have wanted to get the E970 AT&T variant because AT&T/T-Mobile use sim cards and Sprint/Verizon do not

Bchiang, 12 Nov 2012Played with it in the store today. Screen is brilliant no doubt about it! Build quality is als... moreI own this phone, and I tell you, it does not run hot. Remember, the LS970 is not the AT&T version, it is the better Sprint version (32GB vs 16GB RAM, 12M vs 8M camera, etc). It's not anywhere near as hot (well, it's not been hot for me at all) as my Galaxy S.
So far, I have used this thing for 24hours on a single charge. This includes using wifi, bluetooth, texting, searching Netflix, Redbox, posting/reading Facebook, etc. I keep the screen at 65% which is barely dimmer than full.
The IPS screen is amazing, even at extreme angles. LG did a great job of improving Android's interface without mucking it up as others have done (HTC, I'm looking at you).
My favorite phones have always been Motorolas because of their high quality builds. This LG just might change my mind on that.
If your thinking about getting a new phone, get this one, it's $199 at Sprint (AT&T's low end one is $169, or get the Nexus 4 for $299 (nearly same phone)) and you won't regret it. I passed up a free Moto Photon q for this LG and happy I did.
