goodevening.. i am from the philippines and i bought Optimus G model f108 on my friend, it has korean languages on dialer and limited sms, and then when i call, it asks if call to korea or local.. plus the korean apps that i dont need but i cant delete.. can someone help me with these stuffs???
Hai...I am from Kerala, India. I have purchased one E-975 from local LG authorized dealer. I tried to connect my 4gb pen drive using otg cable but my mobile never detects the same. I checked the same with my friends same model mobiles and that was also not working. We changed the otg cable and pen drive and then also no response. I approached LG dealer and LG Customer Care for knowing more details why the OTG is not working. But they didn't given any correct reply. One person told that Optimus-G doesn't have the USB OTG facility, another told that they don't know how to connect the OTG. Another person told that some additional software/application is require to activate the OTG function, but he don't know more regarding the same.
So somebody please help me by giving the required details at the earliest.Thanks in advance.
Lg optimus g e975 - good phone, no hanging problem, faster response. Main drawback - camera, 13mp is not even comparable to 5mp camera - very wrost. Samsung galaxy s3 8mp camera is manytimes better than this wrost 13mp. Anyone looking for camera wont buy this mobile. I think LG has installed 5mp camera and by mistake it has printed as 13mp

I bought this last night. It is heating up like a hot oven. I spoke over a call for less than 5min and the phone had become hot and my ears too.
Just after i use this phone for some time to text its heating up.
Should i replace this piece or get some other phone?
Any informations about official update for this phone? It`s still on 4.1.2. and the 4.4. will be released in few days.
Thanks dear, but after rooting i'll also have to flash .kdz file b/c people did mention that Phone willn't start fully ! Can I do this ?
Root , then flash kdz if required , delete Korean apps , dialer and sms limit then again UNROOT ?

You just need to root it, which is just a one-click method. You can then remove the sms character limit and you'll still get OTA update if any comes up. Plus the camera lens gets scratched a bit since it pokes out but nothing other then that. No signal problems or anything of that sort and web browsing is literally blazing fast
Had no money to buy GPro and g2 wasn't launched at that time. So went with this beast.
Hope to see this beauty will run JB 4.3 or jump to KK 4.4 in the next few months.
3days after i purchased this unit.... i asked for replacement coz of defective camera.....after a few months again....defective touch pad....i went to lg service center....technician advised for replacement of new lcd.....i really...really disapointed....better to used china phone...its better quality than this unit....
John, 13 Oct 2013I bought this phone last month and so far its great! If you're worried about battery life, the... morethanks brother , please do tell that the version i'm buying it is in use at good rates in here PAKISTAN at around 210$ but has 80 characters limit so i don't wanna custom rom thingy which removes chances of OTA (in case, also instability ) is there any update for F180L\S\K versions officially?, in which Korean digits in dialer and sms chars limit has been removed? please do tell.!
* any design flaw? like dust in front camera?
* any signal problem? if handled from specific sides/dimensions?(GSM or wi-fi)
* full working Browsing? (means each n ever site including heavy customized flash features?)
thanks in advance!
I bought this phone last month and so far its great! If you're worried about battery life, the phone has a power saving mode plus an 'eco mode' which prolongs battery power. If that is not enough for you, you could simply download an app like Battery Doctor or Juice Defender to further improve battery life. As with every phone, heavy use such as playing a game like 'Real Racing' or 'Asphalt 7 or 8' will generate heat and thus reduce battery life. The camera is great for the average user, the responsiveness on the phone is great, even with power saver on. The display is crisp, even in direct sunlight. My phone restarted a few times on a few occasions after I downloaded an update from the LG software program. However, I did a factory reset and it works perfectly now. As for people who report the back glass breaking, its simply about being careful with your phone. Depending on your lifestyle, this phone may not be for you as it should be handled with care tbh. All in all, its a great phone. Personally I have no regrets buying it. This is my 2 cents.
i bought optimus g last may...and i encountered lot of problems....
1.re-start several times...
2.camera is bad....
3.video recording for several minutes it turn blurred...
4.when drop the glass easily broke...front/back...
5.using 4 cores ...battery drain fast at 100% for about less than 2 hrs.of internet browsing...
No mobile is perfect dear. But at its price range, Optimus G easily beats any other phone. If you ve extra bucks, you may choose Gpro, S4, G2, Z1....
