SO underrated. LG just needs more marketing. SOLID phone.

If anyone says the Galaxy S3 is better than this phone, they are factually incorrect. The only thing the GS3 and iPhone 5 have over this thing is marketing and better accessories. I had an iPhone 3GS, and went to the original EVO... loved it and never looked back. Went from the EVO to the Galaxy S3 and returned it in about 8 days! Samsung's front end is so overbearing. Waited, did my research and picked up the Optimus G and seriously... I've never been happier with a phone!
It's just so reliable. Battery life is incredible. My fiance and I went on vacation (she has the GS3 still), and every day my battery outlasted hers and I used my phone way more (taking tons of pictures, more calls & texts, etc). We were together all day and had no way of charging so it was an easy test. My rooted and tweeked EVO would never have lasted 3/4 of the day under that load. Screen wise, the IPS+ display vs the AMOLED of the GS3 is no contest. The colors on the AMOLED are just way oversaturated.
PROS, in general... The quad-core RIPS through everything! LG's interface is clean and completely NOT bloated with excess software. The build feels solid, call quality is great, works great with my bluetooth system in my car, even bluetooth music sounds incredible. The display is beautiful. Just so many cool features. For the people who complain about battery life... TURN ON ECO MODE DUMMIES! I guarantee these are people who know how to use about 10% of the phones features.

- Battery life

- No SD card slot.

Pretty Great Phone

This Phone is pretty good. I have owned the majority of the top smartphones since android has launched. And ide like to say this phone is good. Coming from the Galaxy S II the build and design of the phone isnt very intriguing to me. I somehow preferred the Galaxy S II design over this by allot. But what this phone does have is Raw Graphics power. its really the reason to why I Got it. All the features on this Phone are close to flawless, and is an amazing product. but if you are coming from another powerhouse such as the S II than this phone is not much of an upgrade. It has its small ups, but quality wise, its nothing that you cant find in other phones. The things that really stand out in this phone is a Nice Strong Fluid Proccessor, Great Battery Live, Still get about a whole day with about 2 hours of solid intense high quality games, so Battery Life on this phone is impressive, and the Screen is nice and vibrant with good outdoor visibility, and the games on this thing run beautifully. So If that is what you are looking for in a Phone, than this is what you want to get. otherwise, save the cash and get something like the S II / Photon 4G(Great Quality Phone) / Evo LTE / and othersBuild quality 9/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 5/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 5/10Display 9/10Battery 10/10
- Great Display
- Good Reception
- Camera not as good as advertised (13MP not impressive) maybe software issue

Great Phone! Terrible Carrier! -- Sprint Sucks...
CTYankee has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
It was with great pain that I returned the device back to the Sprint store. First and foremost I needed a *PHONE*. Sprint service did not fulfill that basic requirement. I will not buy anything from a company that fails so basic a task and is so miserable to deal with! Customer-No-Service was invented by Sprint, and they are still doing a bang-up job at it.Build quality 10/10Reception 1/10Call quality 1/10Internet 3/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 8/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 9/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10
- Nice straight lines, I don't like the "worn sneaker" look.
- Jelly Bean upgrade means it will get better!
- 1) Sprint
- 2) Sprint
- 3) Sprint
- It would bea shame to have had to cover up the device with a protective case.

Never doubting LG again...

Quad core power, 2 GB RAM, LTE and a beautiful screen you need to see to believe...Just go to a Sprint store and try it out. Blows the S3, Evo LTE and even the Note 2 out of the water. Incredible screen, incredible power, so if you were waiting for the newest Nexus, this is your phone!Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 8/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 8/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 9/10
- IPS screen, 2 GB RAM, Quad core S4 Pro, a high end dream phone
- No SD slot, non-removable battery, 13MP camera nothing remarkable
