I almost bought this phone. The poor loudspeaker changed my mind. :-(
pino, 14 Mar 2013meh you and i both know that this is utter bollox and that if his experience is so bad he eith... morehi. do you think this phone is still worth buying now? coz in my country lg phone is not popular :) i'm looking for a nice big screen phone with quad core specs so far this phone is the cheapest and biggest screen quad core phone within my budget. half the price of samsung s3, iphone4s, htc 1x+ etc. so should i buy this phone? thanks ya. :)
pino, 17 Mar 2013a week or some someone asked me if i wantesd to test if my cpu went back to 4 cored after disa... moreWhat, pino? only 4.45 hours? what are you doing with your phone?you must stop controlling Curiosity on mars.Let Nasa handle It.They have enough trouble already :)
My battery lasts 10-12 hours for Internet browsing and phonecalls (screen in full bright and even whith bluetooth on,only thing i turn off is data)
And Im crying all night be course of it
a week or some someone asked me if i wantesd to test if my cpu went back to 4 cored after disabling QuadGearBox.
as i was still in the way of testing the 2 core setup 5 times for a better sample (QuadGearBox enabled) i didnt get to it fir a few days.
but as i was done a few days ago can now safely confirm that with reenabling the 4 cores the battery lasts shorter again (arround 4 hours 15 min average again).
as for those that are interested in my 2 core average i got a average over 5 tried of 4 hours 55 minutes which is not as high as i had hoped but its still 40 minutes extra active use time with the display on low which is fine indoors.
my lowest time was 3 hours 50 (i think there was a bug that charge) and my highest charge was 5 hours 35 minutes active use time on a charge.
which was wihh less then 15 min video playback about 30 minutes browsing (facebook mobile and some other searches) and the rest was lots of whatsapp and wordfeud.
so if your a light user and really only browse verry little and other then that use whatsapp and use light apps you can easely get 5 hours 15 min out a charge with QuadGearBox and wifi permanently on.
also note this highest score was a total battery time of 2 days and 7 hours so theres about 10% drained from being standby in those 2 and a half days.
as for my next project : which browser is most energy efficient.
my bet is on firefox or chrome but time will tell.
siren, 16 Mar 2013I love this phone...no questions asked since I have it for roughly 2 months now.I just have a ... moresadly im not a psychic hehe tat could make sweet money on the stock exchange.
bit lg stated first quarter 2013 which ends at march 31.
so in theory they have 2 more weeks and for them i hope they make it but if they need a few more weeks to make it perfect i rather see them take that 2 weeks.
if you are absolutely happy with the way this phone works on ICS like i am i would definitely NOT update to JB for a while.
first wait and see if theres some significant improvements or features you like.
wat what it does to the battery and see how much memory JB soaks up.
(ive seen reports of JB leaving ony 270 mb ram free where i now have a average of 500 free)
so if your happy id wait a month or 2 see what features/issue possibly pop up and see if they matter for you.
being in a hurry to upgrade always has a chance to make your device worse (ask HTC one X users haha)
pino, 14 Mar 2013if you can i would wait not only might something interesting pop up it might aslo get cheaper.... moreI love this phone...no questions asked since I have it for roughly 2 months now.I just have a couple of questions to ask.
1.When will JB be available on this device??
2.Is it adviseable to have this device upgraded to JB since it works fine on ICS already??

it surely wasnt the fault of the 4.0 roms as they work flawless :)
if only we could ship phones arround the world within a day and for free hehe i would love to check out all those problem phones :)
hi pino...the phone works good in ICS but I just have a question for you,since there are rumors of the phone getting a JB upgrade..
when will the upgrade be available??2nd..is it worth and advisable to upgrade into JB since the phone works good in ICS??
pino, 16 Mar 2013sorry but this is not true. if you need to charge every 2/5 hours you need to stop playing ... moreI am just wititing what i experienced pino ,,really ics totally sucks in battery and i dont play games non stop,, i dont know it effects cpu or anything but it has gave me a far improvement in battery issue in jb than of ics
ramyHR, 15 Mar 2013I got you man. I had 2x before this one, and it seems like 4x software is a bit unfinished. I ... moreyou call the 4x firmware unfinished but you dont even mention what you find unfinished on it...
so what do you think is wrong with it?
what feels unfinished?
as ive tried hard to make it crash and i havent sucseeded so far.
ive tried hard to make it stutter by booting up every single app i have in the phone and let it run in the background and i failed.
ive tried to find flaws in the firmware and all i found wher 2 errors in the translation to dutch and 2 wrong sentances which isnt bad for a korean company :)
so enlighten me what do you think is wrong in the firmware as from all the android devices this is by far the most solid rom i have ever seen.
and the only thing id change would be the typos and id remove all bloatware or atleast prevent it from autoboting.
other then that its flawless and id install it on my tablets any day of the week if i could.

if you need to charge every 2/5 hours you need to stop playing games non stop as thats the only way you can drain the phone that fast!
and frankly there is no way JB improves that as its ont making the cpu use less power.
ramyHR, 15 Mar 2013I got you man. I had 2x before this one, and it seems like 4x software is a bit unfinished. I ... moreat least lg is doing updates on a fast pace wich is new for lg. so we must gave credit to lg for the updates

I had 2x before this one, and it seems like 4x software is a bit unfinished. I don't mind wait a bit more for official JB (but not too long) if it will be polished and without tiny mistakes.
It seems that LG turned ON their brains now when Samsung escaped 2 steps infront all others. Better now then never! :)
I can't believe LG L9 got Jelly Bean update Oficial. And we are still waiting for Jelly Bean Official update. Really come on Lg?? 4X is 4 times a better phone.
Give us the official Jelly Bean already.
Using leaked jb in my 4x ,,Lots of improvement,,first of all the battery ,,in ics i have to charge every 2 to 3 hrs,,but now after 5 hrs of normal using i got 75% ,,and quiet smooth everything ,,hope lg release Official update soon,...
krassi, 14 Mar 2013Pino I have 2. questions.for you. have you tried this program "SRS One-Click-Root Tool&q... moreno i have not as my phone is perfect as it is (unrooted) and dont see a reason to root it.
and i know this is not the adviced root method used on xda so i wouldnt risk it after all the xda way to root doesnt seem to hard anyway.
as for greenify i juts quickly looked it up and instaled it (some things work even without root) and it feels a little useless to me.
all it seems to do it disable apps till you need it again.
this is only usefull if you have apps that are bahaving badly to begin with but still want to use.
but a sane person shouldnt want bad apps on there device anyway and look for a alternative :)
so in my opinion in theory this works but its only usefull if you have badd apps on your phone you want to use (like maps and google +)
as this puts the app to sleep after using it rather then you having to kill it permanently to prevent bad behaviour.
but as i said id not bother and get rid of the app instead but some might want this as they need mapps or some other app.
geeeeeeeeek, 14 Mar 2013hey pino,can u tell me how much the battery would last if watching hd movies at 50% or 60% bri... moreFor me watching a 720p mkv video with 60% brightness, battery lasts about 5:30 hours.
geeeeeeeeek, 14 Mar 2013hey pino,can u tell me how much the battery would last if watching hd movies at 50% or 60% bri... moreive not tested this yet but depending on which player you use you should be able to play for 3 hours atleast.
i would test this but it takes forever to drain the battery with several players hehe.
according tho this test you get a easy 4 hours 14 minutes with is a good score and about as good as it gets on any quad core:
so 2 full movies is doable for sure.
if you want more buy something like this :
it should boost your video playback time to over 30 hours
most phones simply wont do beteter battery wise then this phone.
maby 5 or 10 minutes but theres no mirrables apart from foc the motorola razr maxx but thts a whole different phone.
lower resolution on a smaller screen with a dual core 1.2 ghz rater then a quad 1.5ghz plus the phone is fatter then the average mother in law.
Pino I have 2. questions.for you. have you tried this program "SRS One-Click-Root Tool"I used it to root my samsung tab p7300 it was easy.
Now I want to root my 4x.Is there any change of damage?
I take risk whith my galaxy tab,but not with my 4x It has to be stable
and have you tried this program."greenify"It sounds to good to be true.
And thank you for being her for vegetable peoples like my :)
