Default Considering coming from Optimus 4x HD to Optimus G

Hi guys

I'm now running LG 4X HD. It has so much dev support and like p880's devs very much. But battery life, heat from Tegra and bugs and lags in AOSP roms are making me tired. All bugs are introduced because of the fact that p880 stopped at 4.1.2 android and sources provided by LG along with it. But devs made 4.4.4 happren anyway

I can exchange my p880 for LG optimus G without paying for it. Question is: is it worth it ?

I would like to know what do you think of dev support of OG:
-Are there good kernel available ?
-Are there bug free 4.4 ROMs ? (p880 have CM, PA, SlimKat, Nameless, OMNI and many others )
-Are the sources of LG 4.4 android available ?


Thank you for answers, I must make the decision, to jump or to stay

EDIT : **** ! I thought I was in Q&A section sorry ! If mod would move this thread I would be happy

I had an Optimus 4X HD 2 months ago, and I was tired and frustrated by this phone, the battery life is terrible, the performance should be more for what it says on paper, the only thing I loved about this phone was the flash

One month I have the Optimus G, coming from 4X HD, and it was the best decision I could make this phone FLIES is very buttery, the battery life is decent, what does a real smartphone and from like 2 weeks ago I was upgraded to KITKAT by LG, is the best phone I've ever had, excellent gaming performance, the only flaw I see so is the camera.

DO IT NOW, you will not regret

Sorry for my english, Google translate.

This shouldn't even be the question. OG is superb phone even today (of course despite camera but 4X has even worse :P) and 4X was outdated when it came out.

Press "Thanks" button and see what happens
Lumia 1020, come to me!

Damn, I've just read that the phone is so cheap because it is f180 version...

Anyway I can flash custom roms made for e975 ? I know I can convert , but does this mean that I will be able to run e975 ROMs ?

from some points of view G is even prefereable over G2. let alone 4xhd. Do not hesitate a second. and yeah, dev support is better than any other G serie phones.

Yes!, The F180 is the same E975, just having a different modem, but you can convert it to a 975 with no problems, but I tell you now, make a backup of the EFS folder, to avoid problems with the imei, I I can help you with everything you need!, no problem

About the ROMS, Omni, Carbon, Lego ROM (it is very good), among others that are also quite good, however, I liked more the rom stock, it is very fast, smooth and stable as any, and the life of the battery is amazing, hope I've helped

let me add this: f180 doesn't have FM radio.

So no real difference beetwen F180 and E975 ? Just flash ROM and F180 baseband after it ? Are there any problems after conversion ? One thing that puts me off about LG stock is the looks of it, so that's why I wanted to know about custom ROMs, if they're stable and smooth.
I also do not care for radio ,Thanks for all the help !

I used to have an LG optimus 4x HD 1 month ago, and change it for an optimus g, and the difference is brutal, the only flat point on this optimus g, is that camera haven't flash aided focus, so low light photos are terrible blurred
