Are you sure about GLONASS support? I know the chip supports it, but it has to be activated in software. many HTC phones for example have snapdragon chips that support GLONASS, but they are crippled in software.
Also, it seems the optimus g doesn't have GLONASS either.

At the moment, the only thing we know is that the hardware supports it. Wether it is is disabled in software is another matter, and if it turns out it is then I will change it.

The only thing I would say about the LG Optimus G is that no one has confirmed it doesn't support it either. As it is in the hardware, it may just be something people don't mention as no one outside of the tech community has heard of it. Also, it may sound a little racist, but if you tell most non-technical westerners that their phone is using a satellite navigation system design and operated by the Russian government, they may see it as a turn off. Sad, but true.

Haha, I feel stupid now... cheers for the info though ... hopefully they won't stand out too much :)
Hopefully it'll make the N4s battery accessible. Or at least more fixable.

Guess we'll have to wait for the teardown.
