Hello my friends. The time has come for me to let the optimus g and try a new phone. I said that i won't buy LG anymore... because they gave a s**t kitkat update to our G .. but they gave it anyway , so I will try possible my last LG Phone.

So i bought an LG G Pro 2.(3 gb of ram + kitkat from factory) . Hope the phone will get lg g3 ui though.

What i want to say.. for people who know.. we have a group on facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/optimusg/


I will continue to support this group(moderate+add new users).

However it's time to pass the legacy to another optimus G user... so feel free to apply for admin function in the group.


The post model:

about how long you plan to keep the optimus G:
member of the group: yes/no


I will choose the winner based on the reputation at my discretion.

I plan to keep my OG for a while yet, can't find the perfect rom though...always something messed up. I only bought mine last October and rooted and rom'd it out of the box. I think I'll keep it for another year or 18 months, then I'll have probably broken it somehow be it cracking it or bricking it. But, after everything, this is my favourite phone...ever. Best phone I've ever owned. Period.

Try Omnirom's official nightlies, been using those for a while now and everything is perfect, also on some of the builds battery is amazing. You could also use stock, if you have an E975 you can already flash the KDZ, if you have an E977 or ATT, T mobile optimus g, well, you will have to wait a bit more just like me pal.

After complaining so much about the lg update policy you choose lg again ? I know that lg made great devices, but it takes balls of steel to make the decision to stay with this OEM.

In my opinion upgrade from G to G2 not worth it for general usage day-to-day.

i keep this phone for a time, until android L is official release, since LG will not upgrade to Android L & need it for Android Development then will switch to a nexus or other LG phone
