Today my LG Optimus G E975 finaly arrived. I live in Europe (NL) so I waited for this model to not get in trouble with frequency bands in a few months when LTE will become available here. According to the specs I wouldn't have a problem with LTE with at least half of the providers.
My provider probably will not implement it soon so I can switch to a good one at that time. Now I have slow UMTS 364kb/s but eey it is unlimited for 50ct a day. streaming over 10G a month. When I putted my simcard in it had no problem detecting anything it even changed the language of the phone to my own, i wouldn't have a problem with english but ok it is easy.
Qslide apps are in the notification bar. It comes with JB 4.1.2 straight from the box and had the right plug for me. Both English and European.
It even updated E97510a-OPEN-HK to E97510b-OPEN-HK, again something i didn't expect from a phone ordered internationally (updates are a B.eautiful I.ntelligent T.easing C.harismatic H.ermaphrodite here for outside phones) so I am very pleased.
So obviously what to do first with this phone? I don't need root yet as I am not intrested in trying new roms in the next couple of weeks but what about themes and tweaks? Any European users that know a place where they would sell the right bumper or otterbox and/or screen protectors that I don't need to ship from US or asia? I don't feel like waiting for weeks or pay for express delivery to double the price.
