I just wish that it were updated to Jellybean by now. But otherwise it works perfectly! I haven't experienced any lag at all and everything runs smoothly even when the phone is on its eco mode which is supposed to limit the processor's operation.
Update: It now has Jellybean!Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 7/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10

Pretty Nice Phone for the price.

I decided on this device because it was Quad core with 2GB of RAM and LTE for $99 on-contract. Similar devices are $199 and $299. The phone screams past other devices in performance. The screen is beautiful, the build quality is top notch, the UI is light and un-obtrusive. Video editing software that came preloaded is a bonus.
A few qualms that I encountered were the skinned browser (I just used chrome instead), the stock android keyboard, and an unimpressive camera.
Big no-no's that I encountered were terrible reception in rural areas. I travel a lot and found myself with no signal in places that my GS3 and Lumia have 1 bar and EDGE for data. Being a bit of a power user, terrible battery life overall. IIt takes about 2hrs to charge fully. Unfortunately, I can kill the battery in 4hrs with my average use. I forgot my car charger once and drove around with no phone for 4hrs. Unacceptable.
Overall I love the phone, living with the poor battery life is a small price to pay for the performance I expect from my phone. I now carry a 16,000mAh backup battery. The reception issue is a deal breaker though. If you don't venture away from cities or power outlets too much this is probably the greatest phone deal you can encounter.Build quality 10/10Reception 5/10Call quality 9/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 8/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 8/10Text input 8/10Display 10/10Battery 7/10

Very Good Phone

This is my first Android phone, and I more than pleased. So far, not one hiccup. The phone is a perfect size and weight and looks great. The customization you can preform on the phone is awesome. Everything is fast from email to internet to games, and works really well. Also the battery life has been very good for me as well. I can go two days between charges. Becoming a big fan of LG right now with this one. The only weakness so far for me is the camera. The video works well, and it has some cool software that comes with it. The camera itself isn't bad, but isn't great either.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 9/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 8/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 9/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10

Great smartphone. Never lags. Great Display. You can customize the icons, which is kind of nice. Q-Slide is awesome if you like to text and watch your movies. Phone boots up in less than 5 seconds. What more can I say......this phone is great!Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 8/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10

Only cons is the camera is a little grainy- About Atrix 2 quality. Back button seems to be unresponsive at times too, but not that it isn't sensing me as it does give haptic feedback but the OS isn't responding to it. Everything else is great so far.Build quality 8/10Reception 9/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 7/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 9/10Display 10/10Battery 9/10

What an amazing phone.

Now sense I got it I have been pushing it to it's limits, with no success at getting it to it's limits. This phone is simply spectacular. The 4.7 in screen looks incredible. The quad core processor and 2GB of RAM is a great investment, this phone is durable and will prove to be a great phone for a long while. I have read poor reviews of the speaker but it sounds great to me. I purchased some bluetooth headphones to go with it and works great. there is some "bloatware" but with the 16 gb internal and the possibility of 64 GBs external that isn't a problem. And every game I have tried has worked perfectly, or very close to perfect. I noticed one small issues that are with many phones it gets sort of hot when multitasking while plugged in to the wall, but not hot enough to damage anything. The call quality is excellent, I did not notice the reported echoes and neither did my friends I called to test it out. The internet is blazing fast. Just using the phone is awesome, and is very easy to customize and has great potential overall. I do want to say this phone is big but fits comfortably in my hands (they are normal sized hands) and pocket. the battery is good, lasts the entire day so no complaint there. The camera works well front and back and provides plenty good quality. This beast of a phone will not let you down.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 8/10
