Default are e973 and f180 the same

so i wanted to buy LG optimus G and went through all listings on ebay and everyone has different version. I dont know why LG has so many damn versions. I wanted to get this specific version off ebay. which is called "NEW UNLOCKED LG OPTIMUS G 32GB BLACK WHITE PREMIUM TDMB & QUADBEAT IPS E973 F180" Its from korea. I wanted to know can i install the firmwares found on this forum for e973 on this phone? does this phone have cm 10.1. E973 and this phone are the same? firmware wise and other stuff also. Any opinions guys please share. And is the camera of this phone better than galaxy note?

Not the same. E973 is closer to the E975 and E971 than it is to the F180.

LG Optimus G E971

so is 545$ for this phone a good price?? and also iam mostly custom firmware user so i need opinions on custom firmware for this phone. LG sucks at official updates so i dont really wanna depend on it.

Why not?
I've the LG Optimus F180L now for a month and I'm from The Netherlands. I'm very happy with this Phone.
I flashed yesterday the A10 version from the E975 with the Original LG software. Now I have the same LG Phone
without korean apss or klanguage and extra QSlide apps in the pulldown menu.
So, why shouldn't we buy one, in Europe we still can't buy it. The best Phone there is on this moment.

First of all cause of warranty/insurance.
Also if your phone got broken, that would be trouble to repair the phone in Europe cause F180, especially the L version, has some differences from E97X.

E975 is already announced and close to arrive, be patient
Sorry for my bad english
