It also depends on how you define perfection. But the point is, there are some imperfections/problems/defects that are dealbreakers. And the dust issue is very much one of them, because it can ruin the entire experience and even the phone. How can it ruin the phone? I'v already mentioned that in previous posts.
There is also no argument that it probably offers the best option in its price range. But that will be only until the 1st few weeks/months. Are you ready for time wasted at service centers, the heartache, an unsightly phone and possibly a damaged/scratched/dead phone?
Whats also worth considering is that LG is not taking responsibility for it and AT LEAST fixing the issue on new phones. Do you find that acceptable?

... moreIf LG formally accepts the dust problem, or even announces that it has fixed it, it could mean that they will have to recall thousands of defective phones and either replace them or fix the issue in some way. It obviously does not want to do that, and probably can't afford that, so they are just keeping quiet publicly. But individually, in reply to email and thru phone (area Managers, Service Centers, etc), they are saying that the issue has been fixed in newer handsets, which based my previous posts seems to be plain lies. They obviously want to keep selling defective handsets without fixing the problem.
Its quite possible that LG is having its own people posing as customers and posting that the dust issue has been resolved. Some emphasize its not a big deal! Gawd, of course its a HUGE deal, you shabby people!! In fact its a total deal breaker. But I'm sure there are genuine, enthusiastic new customers who come and post a month or 4 after buying, saying they do not have the dust problem. As I said earlier, it takes time for dust to accumulate (and is initially seen only in direct sunlight) and the time will be dependent on the level of dust in the phone's operating environment. Its just a matter of time before dust will start accumulating.

If LG did, then I think LG is law offending.

This statement reminds me that I have read discussions in some Asian forums that there are people who are paid to write good comments on some products, but this usually happens when a product is newly introduced.
There is a term for these sort of people, I don't know what it is in English, if you know, please post it.
For those considering this fone - yesterday manager in The Mobile Store told me that he is getting heaps of customers coming in with the dust problem. Many just within a few weeks of purchase; and are so severe that you don't even need direct sunlight to see it. He bluntly told me not to buy Optimus One if I was concerned about the dust issue. Even though they have very recent stock (May 2011, S/N: 104xxxxx), he told me not to buy as even customers who bought just about 1.5 - 2 months earlier are complaining about dust.
As for here, only 4 users have reported their manufacturing dates and S/N nos. Not enough to draw any conclusion. Of the 3, r.punk is complaining about dust in his February 2011 manuf. phone. People on other forums are also complaining about dust in 2011 manufactured handsets. Its clear that it happens sooner for some than others, depending upon the operating environment. In mine, I noticed dust 1st time after 4 - 5 months, when I checked in direct sunlight.
From all the above, it seems LG is clearly lying that it has fixed the problem in the newer series. Some people here are also falsely claiming that 2011 handsets do not have the issue.
Based on these reports, I don't think I will be buying another O1. Buyers
