Make a clean factory reset, U dont need link2sd. Second deactivate following apps. CBS messages, gmail. google drive, google play books, google play movies, google play music, google play newsstand, google plus, hangouts, memo, remotecall service, talkback, you can even deactivate tasks if u want, remote control u need it why would u deactivate such a feature. u dont need link2sd at all if u not planing to play some serious gaming on it but that is just stupid. u see bloatware its all GOOGLE not lg. By the way that music player and video player which comes with kitkat from lg is much more powerful then u can find on market. Trust me i wrote review before and u need those two. especially video player which is so advanced cause of wireless mhl. There is no video app out there which have that function off screen!!! plus u dont need any launcher at all oon that kitkat. lollipop is another story its worse.

Now I just starting with freezing, before deleting them through ADB.. and there is a lot of both Google and LG apps like: Drive, movie, FM radio, gmail, email, G+, Hangouts, music, Music (yes, twice the same name!), music play, books, LGSetup Wizard, Maps, Weather, Print spooler, Quick Remote, RemoteCall Service, street view, ... ...)..
I freezed LG actualization services (until root+Link2SD I just refused to accept their terms :) and seems to have peace from updates. There are a lot more applications, which I must consider if they are needed or not :(
Hmm, got to the serious troubles with Kitkat and Link2SD, just cant mount ext2 second partition for Link2SD :/ mount: Operation not supported on transport endpoint

That is good news, so relatively clean phone then?.. Dont care about publisher much. Google/Microsoft doesnt any difference to me, product is that what I am concern :) I will looking forward to this phone. Hope everything will go smooth :)

Well, I dont like anything running on background, what didnt related to SMS, Call, and synchronize Calendar. I using my own apps to other things (navigation, whatsapp, lightining launcher, aqua mail). So everything else is not needed by me. If it doesnt running, then I dont care much (using SD card space anyway through Link2SD).
I have Motorola XT320 now, and there was pretty much applications, which I trying to freeze and then remove, Like facebook shit etc., but also a lot "motorola" things, which I just didnt know, for what purpose theyre running. Sometimes it cracks my phone function, when I try to disable it. A lot of application was "-odex", and tryin to looks like (and named) system applications. But half of them can be safely removed. I am very happy with this phone now, but it was hard way with "try and error" approach.
So by bloatware I mean some running application, which is safely to delete to have functional phone. I didnt get new mobile yet, but I bet there will be some "LG layer" type of applications..
JimmySmith, 28 Jul 2015Hello, I just ordered the phone :) I would like to help with 2 things, hope someone will know:... more1) Depends on what you consider bloatware.
2) You can't accidentally update without getting a notification though.
Still, to turn it off, go to Settings-->About Phone-->Common-->Update Centre.
Then simply uncheck the option to 'Check and download update automatically'
Hello, I just ordered the phone :) I would like to help with 2 things, hope someone will know:
1) Is there a list of bloatware, which I can safely remove after root?
2) Is there some option, how to disable update notification? I would like to stay on Kitkat 4.4.2 default OS.
Thank you in advance
Even after thoroughly inspecting all data collected by 'Wakelock Detector' and 'Greenify', I can't seem to pinpoint the cause of power consumption. I'm not sure why, but I think LP isn't any better at holding charge.
On Kitkat, battery life was without a doubt, better.
Not a good smartphone. Touchscreen has a lot of fails. The body is fragile in the corners. Is slow to response. Not happy with mine.
Hi I`m looking for new phone and it looks great, but i want to know is it working great as well..
Whats good about this phone? Is it lagy or runs smoth? Whats cameras quality? does this phone have bugs?
is it worth to buy?
and which is better LG L90 D405 OR Sony Xperia E4G e2003???
already 3 new (upgrades for) phones like Bello, Tribute and Volt so im waiting for new L-series. But Volt 2 looks impressive to me.
I think we are gonna see 5.1.1 update. They have optimized OS for lower devices so there is big chance that we are getting last lollipop update
Im waiting for Snapdragon 425, 618, 620 or 820 and Android M out of the box. There are tempting phones out there but i will wait for Qalcomm to fix things. So far nex galaxy A8 seems to be a real beauty but 615 is just not so good.it suffers to from heating. Hope new motorola g comes with new soc

I tried unlocking as if it were placed on a table. I don't think it is positioned like that inside a pocket. This never happened on Kitkat BTW.
I came across a kernel by some dev by which one can enable 'fast charge' that is disabled by default on our stock kernel by LG. I'll post back my results when, and if, I happen to install it. Quick charging would make it awesome.
And too bad, I just found out that SlimLP ROM doesn't supports Dual SIM, as of now.
Android27, 15 Jul 2015I'll take that, but only if the battery is removable. I hate non-removable batteries with a passionBattery is removable
If u have unlock ''bug'' try not to hold ur finger on proximity sensor or hold phone upsidedown or sideways. It will unlock only if u hold it the right way. Since i do that i dont have any problems unlocking my phone.
