"Nice big 1080P Screen Phablet"5.0 starson by sbowen29
Pros: Replaces my phone and my tablets. Very strong hardware meets very good software in a phone that replaces many devices.
Cons: Lack of case availability. I ordered one from Ebay, but it will be awhile before I get it.
Summary: I have had the phone for a week now and replaced a Motorola Atrix 2 with it. Atrix 2 was a fine phone, but wanted a bigger screen, more ram, better processor, and longer battery life. The Pro screen is incredibly colorful and bright. The hardware is exceptionally fast and LG software with Android is very nice. I had tablets for mobility, but I am ditching them since now my phone multitasks and replaces my tablets. The LG keyboard is also very nice since it adds the numbers on the screen without having to shift or use the symbol button while texting. Camera is very good and does fairly well in low light. Battery life is exceptional for a screen this size and I get about 15+ hours of life using the phone a lot the whole time. Standby time is really amazing, on the order of days. The LG rapid charger is neat an recharges the phone from 0-100% in about 1.5 hours. The quad core processor and 2 gigs of ram make even the most stubborn apps run flawlessly. The phone fits neatly into my pockets and I ordered a flip case for it on Ebay since there are none available in the USA yet. It was half the price of the competitor's similarly sized phone and I can't imagine a phone doing anything else. It is amazing! Well built also with metal edges and scratch resistant plastic. Very light weight and buttons located in very good positions. Buttons are also back-lit! For as much size as it has, it also is compact and fits neatly in anyone's pockets. I own the competitors device in a tablet and the LG phone whips it pretty handily. Definitely worth checking out. Time to sell my tablets and old phone on Ebay.Oh yeah, I also wanted to comment on the 32gb built in storage and SD card slot. This phone has 32gb of built in storage so most people will not need to use an SD card, though there is one available. My last phone was hit by viruses wiping out many family photos before I could diagnose and correct the problem. The internal memory on the phone remained in tact...having internal memory is great especially with cloud storage etc...

Did I mention the screen is amazing on this thing? My battery is at 34 percent and it is 10pm. I love this thing. Just make sure you go to the battery settings and optimize quad core battery saver, install Juice Defender, and this phone will last more than a day on a single charge. It really is great. Can't say enough about it.
Updated on Jul 15, 2013It was so cool. I was showing pictures of my kids to a friend who had the iPhone 5 and it looked like a postage stamp or a 3g version or something. I laughed and thought, wow my kids are so much brighter compared to yours.
I tested the 4g LTE in the rural area where I live and it was twice as fast as my home internet.
Still haven't gotten around to selling my tablets on Ebay. My guess is they aren't worth much anymore.
Its midnight and I have 50% battery still without a single recharge today.
So impressed by this phone :)
