So, I bought it on launch day and I'm getting desperate...

1) Wake screen after receiving notification (text etc). Pull down notification bar, back and multitask soft buttons grey out and phone will not respond. If I'm listening to music when this happens, the song keeps playing until I pull the battery or the phone reboots itself.

2) General lag is awful... More than half the time it has noticeable hangs switching apps or opening anything. I'm down to next to no apps that i've installed and have even tried removing just about everything I have with no improvement. Scrolling stutters about half the time as well. And the image you see with the camera open stutters badly also. Every once in a while it's buttery smooth for a few seconds then slows again.

Battery life is great and I love the form factor of this phone. I REALLY don't want to get rid of it but I'm at the point where it's more important to have a phone that's usable than have the extra screen size etc.

It's bone stock and I haven't tried a factory reset.

Suggestions?

Try the factory reset then go from there.

Or reflash the whole firmware using LGFlashTool. Might help.

Well, I did the factory reset and no lockups or reboots yet. It's still really laggy though :-/
Gonna give it a while longer but I'm thinking it's time to root. What's the "hot setup" for the tmo version of this phone?

Hot setup? Just use PurpleDrake.

I meant rom/mods. I've seen people mention 60fps mod for the camera but I was wondering if there was an international rom that worked with the d851 since we haven't seen any of the updates for this phone yet.

We have the only unlocked bootloader. There are no international roms. SkyDragon is a good rom tho.
