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
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.
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
