It's confirmed now.
There is a lockscreen bug in Lollipop update. I again watched how my phone would NOT turn on no matter how many times I'd power it on and swipe.
I don't use any security BTW. The phone will magically power itself off whenever you try to power it (via power button). I once tried to quickly get to the homescreen just to check if it is a triggered phenomenon, but no, it isn't. It's a timed phenomenon. The phone will power off within a certain amount of time (in milliseconds) no matter where you were at that time.
So if you were just staring at the screen. - It'll turn OFF
if you just swiped to unlock it - It'll turn OFF
if you were in the MIDDLE of a swipe - It'll turn OFF
...like an object in mid-air.
So, this IS a bug. That's bad, after all I went through to update to LP. Though it doesn't happens frequently, but when it whenever it does, it is annoying to the core.
To those who need might need it,
Call recorder works on Lollipop but only the one from 'skvalex'
A guy stood next to me with his S6 Edge. I have to admit, the screen was indeed popping out, but he made no use of the curves nor did he do anything extraordinary that couldn't have been done by a mid-range device. Just calls and browsing.
Fact is, most buy phones to game. That is the only area where high processing power is required. Graphics, to be precise. And that's it. With adequate amount of RAM and good customization, any phone can work for you (except for graphically intensive apps). I've now shifted my focus to other areas like display, RAM, storage, connectivity, battery, service, bugless stock ROM, XDA support...
I will stick on this mobile for a while longer, nothing wrong with this device, actually its very good device. Asus zf2 is a joke of availability and im not willing to pay samsung 800+€ for a mobile device. Yes its looks nice but that is just to expensive for a mobile. Will stay on KK for time being but will wait for a mobile with superstable lollipop 5.1.1 or 5.2 out of the box. This time both android and mobiles are just to ridiculous with bugs, fails etc. Maybe next nexus device with proper 64bit soc. Nothing intressting this year. Just overpriced mobiles. Tnx but no tnx
Nishad prd, 07 Apr 2015After updating to lollipop,phone overheating and hanging....Backup data then perform a 'Hard Reset'
cre10, 04 Apr 2015This model or Spirit? Give me advice please....U can use compare option.
If the specs r true than why drop Euro 200,- for a phone that doesnt have NFC & Infrared and only 2100 mAh battery?
LG90 is the better 1(imo), for Euro 160,-
cre10, 04 Apr 2015This model or Spirit? Give me advice please....Both work fine, so I'd suggest you get the cheaper one

Punisher, 02 Apr 2015Which version do you have. V20a or V20b? I saw v20b in lg open source if you have 20a and 20b ... morehttp://i.imgur.com/ccKqiUe.png
I don't know if there will be an update in the future, but because they surprised me this time, I think they might push one last update (even if it just happens to be about stability)
Hello everyone, i have buyed this phone 4 days ago.
Pros: No lags, apps is working fine, keyboard is very nice!! and knock code is comfortable for me, battery wont drain if you dont use phone (when i go bed and when i wake up i can find same battery %)
Cons: bad back and front camera, low ram, battery is pretty low (when I using phone), and you should buy micro sd card for more space.
But anyway, I recommend for you to buy this phone because for this price you cant find any better smartphone. :)

Which is writeble for sd card i think

Now though it is for G3, I can confirm that 95% of what I see is exactly how it looks on my D410
Punisher, 02 Apr 2015By the way in Es File Explorer you can choose which memory path is your root path for ftp :)Sure, but it requires root access (I just moved the backup file to and fro PC and phone)
Punisher, 02 Apr 2015Aha ok. I understand. As for lollipop part i dont know how UI looks like for connection mode. ... moreActually, they have changed the way you connect in Lollipop. As far as I can remember, Kitkat used to present 4 options on plugging the USB.
Not the same anymore with Lollipop.
Though the MTP is intact, the other options have disappeared and collectively grouped into the Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) mode.
As for external SD card access, I guess, the app 'SD Fix' in playstore originally meant for Kitkat, surprisingly works for Lollipop too. So, good news for upgraded users.
Punisher, 31 Mar 2015Can you check if screen mirroring on chromecast works properlyI don't have any devices to cast to, except a Laptop, but on using the app 'Mobizen' via internet, on Windows 7, I was successfully able to mirror the phone.
Do note that it still doesn't work offline via local network. I think they are behind on this issue but you can also try the app 'Weline'.
I should add that I didn't try USB method as it is 99% guaranteed to work and I'm using Connectify on PC to host a network.
ES File Explorer is awesome because it asks for root permission and then easily accesses the external SD card.
