LG Optimus G Pro with 5.5Hot on the heels of the budget L-Series trio announcement, LG took the wraps off the 5.5" 1080p display toting Optimus G Pro. The Android beast, while carrying the same name as the already official Japan-only device, is an altogether different character. Curiously, LG released almost no...

Pretty good in terms of the phone specifications. But the one minus point for LG would be that the looks of their phones have never been anywhere near Samsung. Most of their phones look like a brick and that the worst part. But I have one about their phone, where can I get their new phone, the phone released only major cities in India?
I actually like the design of the phone and I'm warming up to the LG UI but there's still something about how the notification drop-down looks that I don't like. Maybe it's the way that every manufacturer tends to clutter the area with special "features"

oh and forgot to say its nearly 40g lighter plus being thinner thickness wise and shorter in stature than the note 2 maybe a result due to the ultra thin bezel.

Second of all, it was not in warranty anymore, he could have opened it up himself. If you follow the ifixit guide, no matter how stupid are, you can't mess it up.

In other words, your friend got ripped off 100$. Yes, only at Apple indeed. And on top of it, that's a refurbished device, not a new one. There's absolutely no guarantee it won't come with its own fair share of trouble.

And in my case... Apple denied me technical assistance IN WARRANTY for my ipod. They didn't even listen to my problem, but instead instantly offered to replace my device (resulting in loss of my data) for a problem that was ultimately solved with a few resets, except I didn't knew the combination, and the "geniuses" over there didn't care to mention it. Apple support is a joke. Btw that's also the last apple product I have ever bought.

Apple customer surface has been rotten in my experience. It took me over 6 hours of my time to resolve a technical issue with with an iTunes account. I was; refused service at a apple store, hung up on by computerized answering system multiple times, placed on hold for more than an hour twice, & transferred between service centers. In the end, I reached a skilled technical support person who expertly walked me through solving the issue.

Another corporations that I do business with, Schwab, get's me to expert human assistant in less than 3 minutes. That is good. Apple the service I received was rotten in coparison.

Even after the 2 years is up - pay $150 and theyll give you a new one, if like my friend, you dropped it and smashed.

Where can you compete with this service in Android???
