psy J, 22 Feb 2013what does mean by unlocked bootloader ??? omg it means ill get software updates instant lyk ne... moreunlocked bootloadermeans you can now load 3rd party roms fro other devs so if someone makes aa 4.2.2 rom you can load that if your interested in that.
of or if someone makes a stock android rom you can use that wihtout all the 3rd party apps.
but for me custom roms are worthless as they always have some feature that isnt working like bluetooth ot wifi direct or nfc or the sd card slot.
this is manly due to not having the drivers for the hardware if say lg gives that all to the dev community there will be verry interesting roms outthere with better kernels speed and battery duration.

sure there are some things they could have done different but theres compromised in every brands rom and fro my experience this is the fastest rom out there and its solid as a rock i tried to make it crash but disabling stuff and killing the launcher all the time (this kills my tablet hehe) but its will not crash.

psy J, 21 Feb 2013im nt a lg lover i need good quality phone so i can use it lyk 1-2 yrs properly!! i figured th... morewel without my personal opinion for the price there is no phone thats even near the lg 4x HD.
if price isnt a issue theres better phones or certainly better hpones coming in the near future. expect some sick phones to bbe released in the next 4 months.
but also expect to pay atleast 550 euro for those phones which is almost double the price and its not yet known if they have hardware/software issues while its known the LG 4x HD is bugfree at this point(v10H.
so if this the screen size you want dont mind some warm spot on your phone (which is gonne be the future btw as tey only get more powerfull) and want some of the highest storage space on the phone (up to 64 gb sd) and arent one of those JB whiners this is the phone to look at.
its supersmooth JB wont improve that its fast and snappy and lasts longer then the one x with normal use.
but the biggest plus remains the price.
psy J, 21 Feb 2013heating in the sense does it get so heat ???? sound quality low ??? can we skype /voip in this... morei tested skype this week and apart from the latest 2 versions being shite it works good.
so you need to use a older version of skype (2.9 something ) and it works smooth and the quality (atleast outgoing i had low incoming sources) is good.
sadly this leaves us without the msn account support for now.
do not ever try to use the later versions of skype as it will crash your phone upon hanging up.
we need to wait for MS to fix the skype app again for our phone which they dont seem to be in a hurry to do so as the problem is a few months known already.
mine007, 21 Feb 2013Pino I just like to know your opinion regarding Iphone 5 vs any android counterpart phone. I h... morethe reason that apple needs less resources is a the screen is smaller and has to render less pixels. therefore it needs less power to fil the screen with information.
a android phone has a bigger screen with these days higher resolution and therefore it needs to calculate more pixels needing more cpu power.
the second and most likely more important thing is the software itself.
android is to be compatible with hundreds of android phones with all different kinds of hardware ios is written for a handfull of devices so there much less hardware support in it and therefore is easyer on the resources.
its the same with the windows vs mac discussion.
as for the screens itself i would always take any ips screen over amoled its just so much better i still giggle inside every day i look at this amazing screen (had a amoled before).
as for costumization you can pretty much copy the looks of the iphone with a new launcher and a icon pack.
but the fact remains that the phone an also ipad for the most people feels easy to use so that feeling you wont get as you will still have android menu's.
i personaly dislike the layout of ios as i find it unpractical but thats just me.
at the end of the day its all your choice.
the iphone 5 is mighty expencive and for that you have 2 lg 4x hd's.
so the choice is yours comprimise on ui feeling or get the better bigger screen.
Annonymous, 21 Feb 2013The heating isssue is not normal for a high end device whatever you establish. yes it is its a 40 NM soc with 4 high clocked cores this is completely normal.
and it should feel warm to the touch its never really hot.
not even after 30 minutes gaming its just warm.
the samsung gets warm also and so do all the tegra 3 tablets.
its the nature fo the beasts if you dont like it but a single core phone.
