of course you can use it without the upgrade..it is not a must to upgrade..
Root on kitkat: 2 methods, both somewhere on xda, with detailed instructions.
1) revert to 4.1.2, root, install recovery, upgrade
2) somebody made a stock 4.4 image with cwm recovery included, use cmw to install root
It appears there is an upgraded kitkat image version V20C, for now only avaible in Spain.
I want to buy this phone. It will be first smartphone. I read the comments and I am worried about the upgrade to android 4.4.2 kitkat. Is it necessary to make it? Or can I use my phone without having the upgrade?

For those who know how to reflash a phone with custom roms. There is a custom kitkat rom for this phone (search for amigakitkat) but it requires you to go back to 4.1.2, root, reflash recovery, reflash phone - don't do it unless you really feel comfortable with the posibility of bricking it.

Try to use as few widgets on home screen as possible and don't install messaging programs unless you really use them (facebook yahoo skype etc. they all have running processes to enable them to receive messages)
Phone has too little memory and kitkat seems very badly optimized. Try to contact lg and politely complain to them.

Does hard/soft reset really fix this issue ?
