[deleted post]1 I have not tried,but I think it should work fine.
2. As of now there is no ROM newer than 4.2 for LGL23
Can someone who has the LG G Flex L23 in either USA or Canada and is able to access 3G or 4GLTE please advise what carrier they are with? Much appreciated since I will be able to switch also and find out the configuration procedures.
If I do exactly what you are saying to root my L23 and install the new ROM you suggested, can I then be able to:
1) use 4G LTE on the device?
2) get Android OS updates newer than 4.2?
Thanks for your insight. If these answers are a positive "YES", then I will definitely do what you suggest.
I have purchased LG G Flex L23 mobile on May 05, 2015 and facing the problem of charging. It is taking 14-16 hours for full charging. Hourly rate of charging is 7-8 percent only. I monitored this problem for continuously 3 days and complained to seller as well as service provider e-bay but waiting for the resolution.
I'm planning to buy lg g flex D958, the asian version, can anyone please tell me that has it got KitKat update in India or not ?
L23 and F340 are not good. Japanese and Korean language and apps still exist in them. Rooting and Custom ROM are available for them on Japanese websites. You have to use Google Translate every time to get help for them. eBay seller removed few japanese and korean apps. But if you factory reset, it starts with japanese language. D959, D950, LS 955 are american carrier unlocked. AT&T, T-Mobile or Sprint. These got kitkat update and are in English language by default. Buy one of these instead. Phone from eBay comes open sealed but Brand new. Sealed is opened to network unlock the phone. Comes with charger only.
AnonD-214733, 13 May 2015LG L23 is not worth buying for Rs.17000. I bought it for 22000 thinking it has all features li... moreAre you still using it?
Only the japanese version stopped getting the updates but all the other international versions are updated to Kitkat right ? I really love the G Flex. Can you please tell me how is the cosmetic condition of the phone that u got from ebay? Does it look like new?
Thank you so much for your replies.
But what about the korean model f340 ? Ebay.in is selling it for Rs 15800.
Not a right decision to buy L23. Buying an unlocked phone for Rs.17000 in a country like India, where there is new phone release almost everyday. Better go for Asus Zenfone 2 550ML or Buy Oneplus One 64gb from ebay for Rs. 16990.
LG L23 is not worth buying for Rs.17000. I bought it for 22000 thinking it has all features like the G Flex international version. But no updates, stuck on Android 4.2 and No FM radio. You have to do the 3G/4G APN setting manually. Good thing is battery, price, build quality, Works as AC,TV, Set top box remote and Unique curved look.

Can any one tell me how to switch between 2g/3g on LG L23 ?? Please help me !!
when playing game online the phone gets hot really fast why is that?
Just bought the lg g flex L23, made in korea but the japanese variant. Was skeptical about the perfornance of this phone before buying, but after buying this phone i must say that this is an awesome phone. The only drawback is that the camera of this phone is shitty. Otherwise the phone is great. 3g is working fine in pakistan.
Hey, I'm just thinking of ordering an lg g flex and i noticed that there's the L23 version thats cheaper by a good amountbthan the other models. I'm wondering if its a fake or ripoff or just like the others?
