What are some of the delightful things you found about this phone but you might not have expected when you bought it?

I like having 5 rows and 5 columns on the home screen, plus up to another 7 icons in the app drawer.

It's been talked about in other threads, but the wireless storage feature was crazy simple to setup and access on my home network.

I knew about it before I owned the phone, but I had no idea I'd appreciate knock-knock so much. It is one of the best ideas for a phone.

The copy/paste clipboard, nice seeing a visual representation of what you want to paste.

The most delightful discovery that I didn't expect(i forgot about it) was the quite good imo remote control app. I can now control every setup in my house from my phone. A great feature!

I am one of the unlucky to have owned the P930, or ATT nitro HD as it was called. That phone was, frankly, terrible. I literally got only about 1.5 hours screen time until dead. Even with the bad taste in my mouth from that LG, I am glad I gave LG another chance. This phone is amazing...

You can turn it on with a toggle in the top row of the notification shade. If there's not a toggle there called "Wireless Storage", you can enable it with the edit button at the end of the top row. Once enabled, you can mount your phone as an SMB share by typing in '\\your.phones.ip.address" in windows explorer, or map it as a network drive, etc. It will have need a username and password, which you can find in the notification shade.

I've even programmed my electric fireplace remote. If you have a remote that's not on the list you can design you own remote with just the buttons you want. Pretty awesome! You can also have you remote appear in your pull down automatically when connected to home WiFi.

This is one I just stumbled upon. You can add/change widgets on the Lock Screen.

From the Lock Screen:
- Swipe the clock downwards to minimize the carrier and owner info.
- Press and hold the clock to remove, then add a different widget.
- From the Lock Screen, towards the upper half, swipe from left to right, you can add additional widgets on new screens.
- By default, swiping from right to left opens the camera.
