It's out now. You need a locked bootloader and stock rom ZV9 to upgrade to ZVB.

 

I am running it now and it works great.

I noticed it fixes the Ingress drop items crash, and the signal bars now report your CDMA 1x signal now all the time, rather than your LTE signal when you are in 4G coverage.

I bought an Optimus G off EBay yesterday for $195. Couldn't pass it up for that price. Can't wait to play with it.

I'll be curious to hear your take vs. the nexus 4. It's amazing its the same hardware, yet the nexus 4 is so much more enjoyable to use.

I'm curious about battery life. The battery performance in my Nexus 4 is anaemic. And it takes forever to charge. My Note 2 charges in half the time of the Nexus 4 despite the much larger battery size.

The Optimus G includes something called Qualcomm EcoMode. It actually increases battery life and helps deal with the temperature when playing games like Ingress.

 

It's a great phone and this Jellybean update fixes the only issues I had with it. The primary reason I upgraded this phone is because of a spreadsheet that compares it's transmit power recorded by the FCC compared to other phones. The Galaxy Nexus was driving me crazy with its horrible CDMA performance.

The GNex is an awful radio performer. Worst of any device I've ever had. I have solid performance benchmarks in my area for over a dozen devices. I'm looking forward to testing the Optimus G against the others in 1x and EVDO. We have no LTE in my area yet, so I will not be able to test that part until I go to Missouri in April.

I've noticed that with the Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus 4 - slow charging is annoying.

 

OG Battery life and charging speeds are MUCH different vs. nexus 4 - which again, is strange, considering it's the same hardware.

 

13MP camera is a joke though - I much prefer HTC's approach going down to a high quality 4MP shooter.

 

The LG overlay and just the way the device feels in your hand is way different - I much prefer the feel of Nexus 4 design and software. It's amazing how far Google has come with the bone stock android experience - I would even say, apple-like smoothness.

I tried that Ingress thing but never could get into it. Tried to get my gaming kid interested in it but he kinda lost interest after 15 minutes too.

 

I wouldn't go just by those numbers in your decision. Case in point, compare the Note2 and S3 in the LTE categories. I have this one spot by the house I always pick up LTE from a site over 5 miles away. It is usable as well. I stopped one day and I could not get the wife's S3 to pick it up at all. The S3 is not a poor performer in RF by any means, I'm just pointing out that the Note2 is supposed to be worse in the LTE category on paper when compared to the S3 but actually it is the other way around in the field.

I have some anecdotal evidence that the Optimus G is a slightly better CDMA performer than a S3, and significantly better than a GNex.

 

Back to the ingress example, I've been playing a lot with friends, and whenever we go a specific spot in my neighborhood, my LG is able to hold onto a very weak EVDO signal and the game is playable. However my friends with the S3's and the especially the GNex, the game is simply unplayable.

My wife texted me and said my Optimus G was delivered today. I should be able to say in a couple of days how it compares to all my other Sprint devices.

Egads, man! The phone stork -- or is it the phone heron -- sure drops off a lot of bundles of joy at your household.

I was going through withdrawls. I hadn't purchased a device in 4 months!!! I like to pick up devices when they drop below $200.

Very nice price. Would have snagged one myself for that price.

 

Sent from my little Note2

I'm activating mine now. Very nice display. LG's ICS overlay is pretty good. But I knew that already from the Viper. It's better than TouchWiz and Sense, IMHO.

So after cruising ebay, I see I need to learn from the phone whore on how to get good phones at good prices. ;)

Do you carry them all at the same time? Reminds me of previous job where I had one 2-Way Moto pager for our regional office, a 2 way RIM pager for corp tickets, personal sanyo Sprint phone, and cingular flip phone for the district office to get a hold of me. Kept that crap in my pockets along with my wallet, keys, and leatherman.

 

I imagine this vehicle dash full of mounts for each phone... I'm sure Sprint has him on some sort of potential fraud report since he has a high number of device swaps per month.

I carry about 3 or 4 with me at a time in my briefcase.

Yes I'm a Multiple Phone carrying person but I love my Optimus G so far, radio performance might actually seem a little better then my Photon Q. If I'm correct this device has 800MHZ SMR so will be interesting to see how in some of the subterranean depths of Manhattan I pass through 800MHZ performs since Nextel works very well in some of the depths. Now bring on the Jelly Beans!
