I've had the LG Optimus LS-970 for 9 months,till about 2 weks ago I loved it,my husband has an i-phone,& he is always stealing mine to browse the web.Says mine is better than his. Heres my problem,itwon't hold a charge,takes 8-10 hours to charge. Is there any hope for my phone,csn I get a new battery?

To the person complaining about having to take the phone back after a week, did you buy a phone case with a magnet? The same thing happend to my phone after 4 days of buying it i brought a phone case with a magnet thinking nothing of it but after a few days of putting it on i was charging my phone 2 times a day then i googled it and it said that magnets draw the life out of your battery and makes your phone do weird soon as i took the magnetic case off all of that stopped :)

Odd my Optimus G AT&T got very different scores than their test model.

Antutu: 14102
Quadrant: 7604
Vellamo: 1724 (HTML5) 654 (Metal)
Geekbench 2: 2162!

Didn't run these on a freezer or any of that BS. Huge difference in Geekbench and Antutu.

Its ICS. Say no more. Get a note 2 instead and you can rest assured that you have the best.

I've had this phone a week now and I'm completely in love with it.. its fast responsive sleek stylish and is a treat to use.
Coming from a 3gs the upgrade factor for me was huge. The only beef I would say I have with this phone is that the battery is not as powerful as id like.. aside from that the build quality and materials are superb, the screen is gorgeous and overall the experience of using the phone is the best ever that I've experienced.

I know people talk about lack of jelly bean and the fact that nexus 4 will be cheaper for same specs, but I don't really care for the body of the nexus 4 and I just signed a new contract with my provider and got my phone for $140 on release day. As for jelly bean I don't understand why people see it as such a mark against the phone.. the ui is awesome.. with the tweaks and additions lg made it has tons of customization and flows great.. to hold the lack of jelly bean against it as much as some people and reviews have sounds pretty elitist to me.. not everyone cares about the os and how up to date it is.

Anyway, I'm thrilled that I have this phone.. I can't stop using it and don't want to anyway. It gets a 9/10 from me..
