Android is known to lag. 4.1 is the true fix they say.
Even though 4.0 was too be as well

One can appreciate the time, effort and seriousness of LG to this product, and to claw back some market share. It has to support their produces with timely and relevant updates. That said, I will still wait for WP8 and all that it should bring to the business world, new software development and personal benefits. To me that is far more important than any excellent hardware running on Android. I don't think the future is Android.

Qualcomm = Lag
I can't believe this Quadcore A15 and lags! While S2 Dualcore A9 and it doesn't lag
I hope Google makes standard benchmark test to reveal Qualcomm manipulation in Benchmarks tests...
And great job GSMarena as usual i hope you make a section for Laptops/Notebooks too

The software looks promising. There are people who just say bad things w/o using it. I have used Optimus, Xperia, TouchWiz.(All Gingerbread) Agreed that looka nd feel wise Optimus is the least attractive among them but for me some features of the optimus were most useful!
Look at the Q Slide, Dual Screen Dual Play, add/removable notification toggles etc!!

Most importantly LG was the best phone with call quality!! What LG lacks is the timely updates..

What LG lacks is the

Nice specs, but if the software isn't optimised, it fails.

Better specs doesn't mean a better phone.
