I have it since April 2013 and its still my daily phone. No problems with it ever.
Will use it until it dies on me, love it.
I have had this phone since about a month after they came out. For those of you trying the math, thats about 3 and a half years. I am just now starting to have trouble with it. After 3 and a half years, my battery is finally starting to go and my charging port doesnt connect properly for it to always charge. It is starting to think it is in headset mode most of the time. But most phones wont last you this long without problem. This phone had always run at good speeds for me. The apps are great and as long as you have a good data or wifi connection, download quickly. The screen is large, but not so large that you cant hold it in one hand. The pictures are of great quality (though the front selfie camera isnt the greatest) and you can save them on the phone without using too much of your internal storage. Best phone i have ever owned, and if it werent for it starting to have the charging and headset issues, i wouldnt be replacing it. There will never be another phone as reliable as this one, i believe.
The Optimus G Pro is probably the best phone I have ever owned or used. Unfortunately, it does not support the LTE bands used in India, ie., band 3 and 40. It supports 4 other bands, none of which are used in India.
But overall, for ease of use, features, build quality and battery life, I prefer to stick to this, rather than go for a 4g sim and new phone.

I am glad to know that you are the right person to ask this question to.
you see I am based in India and I am using AT&T Lg optimus G pro e980 (unlocked).
I really like this phone!
But I am facing a problem, I unable to switch networks from 2g to 3g to LTE or vice versa.
I wish to use a particular 4g sim in India which is not getting detected by my phone.
the cellular personnel say I need to update my phone.
My phone is already on kitkat. I don't think Lg or AT&T has rolled out any further updates for this phone.
1 how do I switch between bandwidths 2g-LTE.
2 If there is an update how to do it being in India.

Hi guys... I got Lg Optimus G Pro F240L one month ago... I upgraded it to lollipop 5.0.1... The apps are okay, the system is okay. But the battery is draining down very rapidly. For example, if i use the net for an hour. The battery turns out to drain from 98% to 35% or less. Pls can anybody help me with it? And can this model be upgraded at least to lollipop 5.1? Thank u....
As an ex-AT&T employee and an Optimus G Pro user, this is one of the most reliable phones I have ever used. The customization options, speed and ease of use are top notch. any problems I have ever had have been the fault of android OS and not the hardware itself. Battery life is best I've ever experienced. To the other commenters, if you are going to post on a public website there should be at least an effort to make sense, and make it look like you graduated 1st grade.
