      Why are you yelling?

    Oh, great. The LG could becore more popular with this.

    The phone is quite a bit pricier, but with sd card and LTE and now a unlocked bootloader, this is going to be my new phone. I will cancel my in limbo Nexus order.

  • Bob

    Heh, LG… never again.

  • Lugnuts McGruff

    Or you could just be a Nexus 4 for half the price and have an unlocked bootloader by default.

    Just sayin…

    The LG Optimus G doesn’t have a sd card slot. I got the phone last week and it’s very slick that’s for sure. TELUS LTE speeds in downtown Vancouver are just under 50Mbs down and about 20Mbs up.

    Battery life is on par with the iPhone 5 translation=it sucks with charging during the day a must.

    Screen is beautiful and is right beside the HOx for sure.

    Missing a much needed bumper as this thing is slippery and destined to meet concrete one day.

    Looking forward to cracking open the ROM’s.

    I upgraded to this phone despite all the naysayers about LG and have not been disappointed with the Optimus G. Had the North American Samsung Galaxy S 3 been quadcore, it might have been my first choice, but it was not. The Galaxy Note 2 is in my opinion too big for daily phone use but an amazing phablet. The screen on the LG Optimus G is fantastic and the camera is not as bad as people say. Coming from a Blackberry Curve, this is a massive upgrade!

    With an unlocked bootloader and after flashing an AOSP rom you could say you have a Nexus 4 with LTE :P.

    Korean version hasn’t been bootloader unlocked yet. AT&T and Sprint have though.

    Your reporting is bad and you should feel bad. A) You only link to the bootloader unlock for the AT&T version–completely skipping the Sprint version which is *different*. B) It doesn’t work on the Korean version, I have no idea where you get that from. Thankfully the script is smart enough to prevent a user from damaging their phone by doing what you’re suggesting.
