This is a great device, basically a Nexus 4 with LTE and more memory (32GB). Love the build of this device and how snappy it is. Camera even though its 13MB is still very average compare to other 8MB camera but it is loaded with features. The only real downside to this device is not really with the hardware or software but the network its in. For most of us the device will run in 3G and thats Sprints 3G which is terrible despite the device being able to support LTE. Other than this. Amazing device. Totally worth getting

LG optimus G is a perfect product, better than its brother NEXUS 4,. Got a fairly good display and monster like performance, if you want a good designed phone with a powerful performance,this will be your choice.

I've only had the phone for a few days, but so far mostly good. There's the heat issue and some typing glitches, but hopefuly the promised Jelly Bean upgrade will fix the issues. Phone seems to have a lot of potential.
