DLNA is there though.
And the box will obviously be open, for unlocking purpose.
I know that some people are complaining about the battery life. Here is the trick when you charge your phone it might take 1:30 to charge it from 0 to 100. But that is just not enough even if it says 100% charged keep it plugged in for an hour or two more and then you will see the difference.
I charge my phone overnight and I use it the next morning the whole day browsing wifi/3g texting whatsapp by the end of the night I have no less than 40% left.

But when I had checked repeatedly and thoroughly, I found that the International version E985 has a few more features like FM radio, DLNA and others which the Indian version E988 didn't have and possibly a few other small features maybe missing also. Could you please check and confirm whether the E980 has radio, DLNA, etc? Because last I checked, the E980 didn't have radio. Ans also I wanted to know, if I buy it no ebay, whether I will get a a sealed brand new product or whether it will have been opened previously and then packed? Thanks in advance!

I am not sure where you can get a E985, but I got a E980 which is the US AT&T version(32Gb). You can get this on ebay India. Few stocks are still left, but you won't get local manufacturer warranty.

Happy new year 2014. I would like to know from where to buy this particular model "E985"? All I find on the sites are the model E988. Please kindly tell me from where I can buy a new phone of this model. Thanks a lot.

Speaker does sound tiny. But nevertheless it gets the job done, and is loud enough for one to be able to hear the ringtone.
Pls LG G pro users. How is the call quality on this device. Also I heard the speaker at the back is very weak. Is it true. I am more particular about the call quality. Thanks
why LG is not updating there devices alot of things is missing in optimus g pro which is available in lg g2 this is truely disappointing for enthusiestic users like me...
This phone is a hidden gem in the market. Not many know about it.
For the price, I say it's the best value for money, close to flagship level phone out there now!
One single update(4.4 or at least 4.3) from LG is all is needed, I will be a happy chap for the next 2 years.
vickzz, 30 Dec 2013G pro is great phone compared to s4
Recently found that s4 have great lag ..
So it is better... moreIt may be that the S4 lags a bit, but there are some very basic functionalities missing in G Pro's software bundle (don't know if this is the same with LG products too) which IMHO does not have any excuse...
BTW I am not a sammy fanboy, actually traded my SIII for this phone (I found SIII lagged compared to my HOX+)...
I don't what LG can say, but say - what is the excuse of having no signature option in messaging client, or not option to disable push SMS from your network provider?
Also, another irritation is constant reminder to download apps (from Application Manager), hell I have purchased eSet why should I download Mcafee mobile security????
This is a great device, hardware wise - but unless and until LG pulls up its socks and do something about its software department and make updates as well as these basic fixes regular - they will never be able to compete with Sammy or even HOX+...

I am a rooting fan too ... so can you please confirm a few things for me?
1) Where did you get the instructions to root it from?
2) What all features are missing (if you don't mind) the cool camera, video features?
3) Is the rom stable and how is the battery life after rooting? Is it CM 11 or something?
I will be very thankful if you can answer my questions.
Jhelum- Android fan

Nel, 13 Dec 2013EXACTLY! I don't really understand why people keep complaining about software update. Since An... morePeople still understand that from a performance stand point, Android hasn't been complete yet until 4.4 where it's smoothness + Native code like that on Windows Phone and iOS.
I would be a waste for such a quick phone with a Snapdragon 600 not to have those performance gains.
That's the only reason I see for updates. Besides that I don't see a reason for android 4.2 and 4.3 when they could have just called it 4.1 with incremental updates.
