Unfortunately LG has been quiet about launching an unlocked version of the G3 in the US.
Assuming there wont be an Unlocked US model, which one would be better: Korean F400 model or Asia D855 (both 32GB)?
I'm guessing D855 should have less bloat than an unlocked F400 from Korean carriers and perhaps slightly better screen tuning (European/International version is also D855). Suggestions?

Korean Model can pick up ATT LTE and I was able to run hotspot apps without rooting or hacking anything. That and the Antennae was a huge plus for me lol

Im not sure of the radio bands but the Korean model does have a lot of Korean left once you switch it to English. Kind of annoying like in the dialer.

Thanks. Since both F400 and D855 support my carrier's 3G/LTE bands it all comes down to the other differences likes pre-installed software, screen calibration/tuning and others.
I wonder if anyone tried different G3 models - Korean, European and/or US and would be kind to post some impressions.
