New OGP Owner, coming from HTC One X
Just picked mine up today, since renewal time was so close I managed to wait...with great difficulty.
The phone feels large in the hand, but so far it's comfortable. I'm still getting used to the button placement but I love the notification light. I tend to hold my phone in my left hand, so I usually have to wake the phone with my right. So far I haven't figured out how to configure the shortcuts on the lock screen, but that's mostly curiosity, since I have a policy enforced by my office requiring a PIN unlock and a 15 minute timeout.
Just finished rooting, the QSlide bar takes up a LOT of space, and it's REALLY noticable when it's gone. Unfortunately, to get rid of it, you have to root, then install ClockworkMod, and then apply a ZIP fix via CLockworkMod recovery boot. It's a multi-step process, but it's worth it. Hopefully LG will notice, and with the next update add an option to disable the bar completely.
The stock keyboard is nice, but I ended up installing Swype anyway. Somehow the stock keyboard started talking on me and won't stop. Don't know why, I'll keep working on it.
Screen is beautiful, now I just have to see if SMartStay works and how well the battery holds up. So far the thing is great though.
