Bought this as my personal phone to replace my Galaxy Nexus.
Pros: Overall I was very impressed with the design and the display. The display is the best I have used to date including my iPhone5 and my wife's SGS3. It is remarkedly fast, holds a battery charge very well, runs smooth and the call clarity is superb. Very glad I bought the device.
Cons: LG software addons have been a major pain in the butt. At first glance they do not seem invasive unfortunately, the more I use this device, the unhappier I get. It is not uncommon to adjust the settings and find LG has added a secondary set of settings that you also have to adjust. With siblings, friends, kids and grandkids, email and texting receives a fair bit of use. I do find that with attachments, especially MMS, the device will pause between actions. Removal of the MMS brings the device back to full speed. This is just one example of small things that can be annoying.
Wants: OS upgrade so I can get my Goole Now back. LG has been short on promised updates.
Overall I do like the device and am happy I bought it. There are little things that annoy me at times, but no more so than any other device I have owned. I recommend this to anyone looking for a new phone.
