Yes, time ago i liked this phone..now i know what this !#$# can do. It's very slow, can't install the roms i want. Music player is !@#$. You can't even copy/paste music on SDCard. And enough bugs that i don't recommend this phone!
If you install a custom ROM , battery life improves, performance gets better, SDcard may become your internal storage for apps and games. You can also upgrade to lollipop and over clock to up to 1.4 GHz. Flashing custom ROMs gets fun when you get used to it. I do it almost every week :D
This is best rom i ever tested and used. First at all flash V20o firmware.
After flash rom flash all what you want because in my case wont get in recovery again.

I had used this Phone for more than 2 years and I faced no issue and now I had given to my Friend after purchasing G Pro 2. This phone still works without any issue. It is an decent phone with decent specs. It was one of the best at the time of its launch.
Amr Labib Sean Micha, 28 Feb 2015Could u please tell me how to upgrade it to that rom as it is really not 100% clear on xda, d... moreRoot with vRoot
Download "rom toolkit" for L9 and unlock bootloader then instal recovery
Download Rom and Gaaps
To boot into recovery turn off, hold HOME and power UP, press 4s power (all time hold Vol+ and Home) when start recovery release all.
Wipe cash and partitions
Goto sd card and find rom , after install find Gaaps then reboot
This room dont have any Bug except, in my case, Cam app. Download FDroid and find Focal App. Cheers :D
keep away from the LG L9
It's good when it works, was quick etc. but I've just taken it to LG's service center for the third time in 2 weeks after 3 months of purchase.
When you make a call or when someone calls you, you cannot hear the other end or be heard. I'm insisting on a new phone hopefully different model or brand.
Could u please tell me how to upgrade it to that rom as it is really not 100% clear on xda, do I have to root, and how and how also do I unlock bootloader? Could u show in clear steps please.
Thanks in advance
Haters, go get a life... I'm using this phone from past a year and never found a problem. this phone has never hung...
Phone i very very good if you know what you want. I got it for 80$ allmost new. Root my phone remove pcsync and lock sreen app give extra performance from some reasone i dont know. Everything work smooth on jelly. Then i find CM 11 4.4.4. on xda unofficial from Artas and everighting goes wild. Work like some very expensive phones. Battery is very improved colors of lcd and every segment of software work well, even cam is better.
Dinesh, 08 Feb 2015worst smart phone. Processor is very slow and hanging problem often occursYou don know to use phone. Is very good. If you not satisfied install CM 10.2 or unofficial 4.4.4 from xda (no Bugs). Works like charm! I buy it just to unlock him and him low prise for what i get!
