If you really want to game your better off with one of tthe newer devices whic have a 22 or 28mn chip rather then a 40nm.
They last over 4 hours where with asphalt 8 my battery lasts less then 2 hours!
Its fine for my normal light use as i last up to 3 days on a charge but for gaming there are better devices these days.
After all this is a outdated device by now.

-how long is your screen on timeon a full charge without gaming ? (gaming drains the battery verry fast on EVERY device)
-do you have gps , bluetooth, auto sync on or off?
-do you use 3g and how good is your signal strength and quality? (i went to a different provider with poor coverage and it cost me 1 hour screen on time with 3g usage...)
-do you have apps with adds ? (these apps constantly load new adds over wifi or 3g which eats data and battery)
-whats your brightness sett on?
-what is your stanby drain in % with 3g overnight (8 to 10 hours) it shouldbe no more then 5-7%
-do you use 2.5 or 5 ghz wifi? de 5ghz uses more power.
Do you use your Phone briefly lots of times or do you use it for 15 min or longer sessions? longer sessions heat upthe battery and hot batterys drain quicker. rubber covers can increase heating and make the batt drain quicker. a Phone/tablet last the longest if you use it for short periods all the time rater then long periods sometimes as the battery gets to cool down and settle.
Theres loads of things to consider when posting battery life on the net! ! ! !
By not doing this i dont take you serious as i dont even have 5% of the details and its highly likely that you give people a wrong impression which really buggs me.
Ollie, 13 Jun 2014This phone is awful.I have it since last year's november and it's so sloowwww.The battery get'... moreThats all normal. Apart from the lagging which is caused by either a bad installed app or rooting being done wrong.
Again i run this Phone at 2x 650 mhz instead of 4x 1500 and its superfast and smooth all the time but i barely have any app installed.
So do a factory reset and stay away from apps for a week and see how it preforms then.
m_r_c, 16 Jun 2014Hello,
I updated yesterday to official 4.1.2, but I noticed that the free RAM is now about ... moreyes this is normal sadly.
a Phone with android 4.3 and 2 gb ram will only have 600 to 800 mb free as android caches whatever it can in the memory..
Once needed it will be removed from the memory and the new app will be loaded.
The only disadvantage this had is for multitasking and battery life.
as multitasking is limited based on free ram and battery life is affected by dumpong memory and reloading memory all the time.
It even loads things you do not use which is a waste of cpu time and battery.
This is not a lg problem tho its a andorid problem.
Never again LG!!! The phone sucks big time. I had ICS and then J, then I made a downgrade to ICS again and it still sucks. The battery lasts one day (if I'm lucky), the phone freezes every once in a while so I need to take the battery out. VERY DISSAPOINTED!

Here's another example - http://s4.postimg.org/t6ubtlp58/image.jpg and http://s4.postimg.org/f1oirsg3x/image.jpg. The first one is from google camera, the second - LG Camera. Color reproduction is much better with GC, and I guess there's more detail as well.
I updated yesterday to official 4.1.2, but I noticed that the free RAM is now about 100-150 Mb less than with version 4.0.3. Now I only have +/- 300 MB of free RAM. Is normal in this version?
I already disabled MLT (on hidden menu) to get a fast phone, without lag.
This phone is awful.I have it since last year's november and it's so sloowwww.The battery get's hot super fast when you are playing games,they begin to lag sometimes even when you press the home button the phone lags for about 10 secs until it enters back home and it is so weak,it can't even last 7 hours when listening to music and looking through pictures or smthn else.It has though some awesome features and i also think that the design is very good and feels good in your hand.

12 is not in focus the other is.
If you focus correctly they will look identical.
And the rom does not make the Phone more powerfull its still the same hrdware that runs as fine on 4.03
After upgrading to Beanstalk 4.4.2 from stock JB 4.1.2 this phone became so much powerful, that I really don't see any reason to get a new flagship device :p
The performance is so good, battery life is decent yet could be better and actually can get better - but I'm experimenting with settings in iodak kernek.
What's more amazing - camera quality got better! The google camera app on Beanstalk creates much better pictures - there's more detail, and the photo looks better overall.

Recent update off the LG website has ruined my phone, it is so slow I can't use it. I'm getting no help from LG customer services
[deleted post]you cant as with any modern Phone the SD card is only used for video photos and pictures.
and next time post once no need to post the same 3 times.
gooood phone, I do enjoy MHL function, but how to install apps on external SD???
, im using Android 4.1.2
AnonD-267258, 25 May 2014Good phone ruined by horrible LG software...The phone is powerful, it has good specs but the f... moreif it doesnt update update it manualy... he most likely wanted a cheap Phone and orderd a Phone not designed for his region so it cant update. download updates manualy and you ahve 4.1.2
im still at 4.0 as its simply the best rom the optimus ui is the fastest i have had on all my devices so if someone is having problems they most likely rooted badly or have a bad app installed.
The fact some games dont work is due to verry lazy game devs this is not lgs fault they dont make games.
And to be honest asphalt works fine for me so once again check what apps you have installed if it works all fine for me it must be something people did to there phones.
people complain all day every day but the simple fact that i dont have issues is reason enough to believe others messed arround with things they shouldnt touch or installed crap software that scrwed up there phones.
and as said many times before my Phone runs on 2 cores at 640 mhz not 4x 1.5 ghz and it still runs great and i get 5,5 hours screen on from it when not gaming.
Good phone ruined by horrible LG software...The phone is powerful, it has good specs but the fact that it runs on Optimus UI made it bad. My friend has this phone and in our country it just doesn't update, he's stuck on Android 4.0 ICS and games lag, Asphalt 8 is on Low setting, some other apps crash, and the user experience is horrible, if I compare this to HTC ONE X who has mostly the same specs, it got the update, and it works great! Runs Asphalt 8 maxed out, everything is stable and beautiful, no slowdowns at all.
