Here is small review about exp. with this phone.

I ordered it on 15th and got on 25th January. Got it shipped by BlueDart. Getting GEB product in 10 days is quite good https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif
Original phone pack was not sealed. I think this is because custom office checks the packets so nothing to worry about much.

BTW, when I opened my package, I found headphone as well https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif

Phone looks awesome. A quad-core processor and an impressive 2GB of RAM makes playing games, browsing the web or just flicking across home screens smooth and downright fun. With all that memory, the browser can handle a dozen or so tabs with ease and the latest games are no sweat either.

The screen is big and sharp, making pictures and videos gorgeous. All that visual real estate is great for gaming.

Photos are similar to what GSKVerma has posted in original thread so I am not clicking them again https://cdn2.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_toungueout.gif

Would like to mention GPS performance specially. As most of the MTK phones have know issues with GPS, I always wanted to buy Snapdragon one only. And this phone has very very good GPS Performance. It get locks quickly and it very accurate.

So far phone looks great, however, I have found that phone’s battery is draining too fast . I have been using Android for over 3 years and used many phones. As per my usage, it is not normal. May be a new custom KitKat ROM might help so I will try rooting and upgraded in a day or two.

Could you please share your exp. with battery performance? Is it me only or in this phone in general has this issue?

Battery seems to be the major pain point with this phone. Even mine is draining fast in spite of putting in Eco mode https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_sad.gif Will not last full day with moderate use.(52% now(3PM) with avg browser/Whatsapp usage) Need to buy a power bank. Can anyone suggest reliable ones plz?
Also, the camera is mediocre to say the least.

@xuseronline: Could you confirm if its the Company headset (mic included) or a headphone included?

That’s a precise hands-on review. Congrats. I hope you have problem only with backup, rest are all class leading. I am also expecting my first android to be delivered in few days. How long does the battery last?
I suspect the backup to be low in most of the phones we are receiving now, because one of the fellow Dimer has pointed out that these AT&T phones are manufactured somewhere in 2012. So, this long shelf life might definitely have an impact on battery performance. If no software tweaks are fortunate enough to make a turnaround, a new battery might solve the problem! Its currently in Ebay for Rs.1348.

How about the headphones? Are they original LG quadbeat headphones? Does it sound good?

Yes, mic is included. The box that I recd. (Phone box by LG), they had mentioned regarding headset and it was there. It seems original.

Same here. Even with highly moderated uses, I am also not getting good performance. Not sure it has anything to do with the mfg. date, which was Jan, 2013 (mentioned on the box).. about one year old. Do you people think battery performance can go bad due to this?

Buying a new battery will help?

Which phone did you get? E975 i.e. International optimus G or E970 i.e. AT&T Version. Since headphone does not come with Carrier based phones in US.

I don’t have same handset but smart phone with 2GB RAM and Quadcore Processor definitely going to eat battery.

I don’t think battery going hell in just 365 days life.

Just allow 7 days charge/discharge cycle (do not drain completely as some one post at XDA, but some where I read that draining battery FULL for 2-3 times and recharging to FULL for 2-3 time will help battery to use it’s capacity to full extent)

For me ..battery seems okay. This is my 1st smart phone so I can not compare with the others. Day before Yesterday’s night, I did charge it up until 85-90%. and then used complete day (i.e Yesterday).. which includes about 1 hr 45 mins of calls , 30 mins of games, 30 mins of wifi usage some apps checking. This morning I woke up and found 25% still remaining. so abt 60-70% of battery charge for about 30 hours okay for me.

@xuseronline

you received Headset also..that’s cool https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif. I didnt receive any head set.

I bought 3 screenguards and case from empirecase. and It was shipped next day( which was 1 week ago). I asked them about the delivery date, this is their reply.

Hello,

Thank you for contacting EmpireCase. There is no tracking available for an international delivery. Orders are shipped by DHL Global Mail Priority Service. After shipment, most orders are received within 21 shipping days, estimates can vary by country, some orders can take 30-45 days. International shipments can see delays beyond our control. If an order has not arrived within 30 days from shipment, let us know so we can help you either ship a new package or issue a refund if you choose to wait no longer.

Thank You
Have a great day!

Yes but what about case & cover. It has glass back so it need better protection. I’m thinking of buying following case-http://www.ebay.com/itm/Diztronic-AT-T-LG-Optim...

I had back luck with the battery… really poor performance.
I will try using a custom Kitkat rom in a day or two. Let’s see if this makes any difference.
