I have the LG L01E red version. It came in just a few hours ago so I can't tell very much yet.
I will tell a few things about the camera and overall performance. ( Note: I came from a galaxy s3 therefore I will make a few comparisons with it.)

Camera:
The camera is 13mp and has a lot gimmicks like voice shutter, time catch shot etc.. The gimmicks are nice but it will slow the camera down in making pictures. The galaxy s3 was faster in taking and processing the pictures although the difference isn't that big.
Settings are also highly customizable as you expect from most devices nowadays. You'll find standard setting like; whitebalance, storage, ISO and that kind of stuff.

And now the most important thing: Picture quality.

To be honest... I'm actually quite disappointed with the picture quality.. Most of the pictures I took were kinda hazy. Many details are blurry. But I think this is a software issue because I've seen other lg optimus g devices with much better camera quality. There is another bad thingy about the camera which is the autofocus. It just keeps autofocussing automatically. Normally you would have to press a button to focus before it starts to take a picture but now it just keeps going focussing continously. (custom rom yay)
The front cam is simply crap. There's is a lot of noise.

For a flagship I'm kinda dissapointed with the cam but let's move on to the overall performance.

Overall performance: Is basically as you would expect of a s4 pro. It's like a exynos quadcore on steroids.
Transitions between launcher and apps are almost instantly, srolling is smooth, browsing, zooming are working without any lag.
Watching video's is a pleasure on the screen.

This phone beats the s3 in overall performance without a doubt.

I can't say anything about the battery performance yet. This phone has a 2210mah battery in it. But I guess the battery performance will be average.

On a sidenote: this phone only has 2 languages: english and japanese. It also has infrared (why?????) and a long big ass antenna for tv. But the tv function only works in japan sadly.... Oh and it came with a docking station out of the box.

I'm going to try to root this thing now

If you have any questions, let me know.

EDIT: Rooting failed. I had to hard reset the phone to get it working normally. So don't try the korean/AT&T root methods if you have the LG 01E

The phone is awesome! Although I didn't expect phone's dimensions to be this big. But you definitely made a good choice. I hope the devs will help to unleash the real potential of this device in the future.

i also hope for support for the japanese version.. i will be receiving mine this week..hahaha... our problem now is rooting... so we just go for now with simple plaything apps for now.. but yup..for me it is really awesome... i believe this is the only device for now that supports the SDXC format... and the battery as well is replaceable and with more capacity than the international version... but then again..we need XDA support.. but first things first is the help of the LG ADMINS to unlock our bootloaders.. without it..dunno what is our future

cheers to all of us L-01E USERS!!!

I will be receiving mine in about two day in the mail. After all the forums I have been reading thru I honestly have a bad feeling about purchasing this one for the sake of root. I don't think there is gonna be anyone from XDA to jump on ship with the docomo and the fact that the boot loaders are locked makes it even less likely. Ugh!! Should of just went and got the bell version or half kicking myself thinking I should have went with the HTC OneX+. If anyone finds anymore info on the likely hood tho please feel free to PM me.
