    I had this phone for already 3 days, and the battery is terrible, and died from 8:50 am to 3:20, I came from a Sgs2 which battery managed to last me more than 24 hours, the phone lags way more than the sgs2 and to be clear I'm on hspa area, and not lte, s is not the radio, the phone sometimes lags a little bit, but other times u have to wait like 20 seconds to get a response.

    I have to admit the battery isn't the greatest but ever since I rooted yesetrday its been running 100% better. Not exactly sure why but no more lag at all. Just rooted and hard reset.

    I heard a lot of good things of rooting and hard reset.

    SuperOneClick and factory reset is all it needs then? I might try...

    How is the software with rooting? And if need be, going back to stock?

    Rooting does nothing with the software. It's the hard reset that helps with the lag (which makes sense since you're factory restoring your phone).

    Also, unless you're actively using GPS leaving the radio on doesn't affect battery. It's a passive receiver. It sends out no signals at all.

    Picked one of these up for my Wife. She was between this and the Skyrocket. So far she's really happy!

    Got mine today. Upgraded from a Captivate. Initial impressions are great, but the battery life is definitely shorter than I'm used to.

    Did you get into bootloader mode?

    Search XDA for "LG Nitro" and you should see a "[Request] Dedicated Forum..." thread in the results. Go to page 9 of that thread and you'll find specific instructions on how someone has successfully rooted the Nitro. As an AC noob, I'd post URL but don't think I can...and as an Android noob I'd try the root myself but am still a little hesitant...

    Had mine for two days. Really digging it so far, very nice feel in the hand. It's just that I am new to androids and not may people have this phone so there is very little support for it. Being an old guy, I need all the help I can get. Did get all my music on it and most of my photos. The HD videos look fantastic on it, all my old music videos will have to go.

    Anybody know how to convert videos to get the most from that big screen?

    I really like it too. I have read a lot about it and there is a lot of hate put on the Nitro. I don't know what it is but I really like it. I have a Skyrocket as my personal phone and the LG as a work phone and I seem to reach for this more often. Call me crazy but its nice.

    ...so, I am now a prior owner of the Nitro HD, and the current owner of a Skyrocket. As much as a hated giving up on the phone, I had to because of the battery issues, even after rooting, debloating, installing battery defender ultimate and using an aggressive setup, and using the non-LTE apn. As much as I loved the screen and the build quality (yes, I think the build quality was top notch), I had to make the sacrifice for a phone that will get me through the day.

    Differences - Nitro screen is far nicer...it is hard going backwards in resolution, even with the Samoled color saturation. Battery seems far better than the Nitro so far...I'm getting roughly double the life. The software is buttery smooth on the SR while there was some laginess in the LG (not bad though). If LG can fix the battery life issue, I'd say the Nitro is a better buy. With that said, I can't recommend it because the battery drain is that big of an issue.

    Goodbye smooth text, hello jaggies - how I hate to see you again

    I got the HTC Vivid at the beginning of the month and returned it for this on Thursday. The Vivid just never felt right in my hand and when it came to rooting, RAM usage, SMS chronological order, etc., I just couldn't keep it. After 2 days with the Nitro, I don't quite see the battery complaints some have had and feel like the build quality is better than the Vivid (e.g. that stupid battery door). I kinda miss the notification LED, but there were so many problems I had with the Vivid that eclipsed that small perk. Plus, this screen is amazeballs and you can change the resolution size of apps to fit the screen.This is the best Christmas present I've ever bought myself.

    Question: I rooted it last night and am having trouble disabling the tethering plan check. Has anyone succeeded in this yet?

    hello. I just this forum today in order to talk about this phone.

    I have had the nitro for 3 days. I have struggled for a month on what phone to get. really, it came down to the screen on this phone. however, I am struggling with my choice because the phone has a number of bugs.

    First of all, as I am typing this, I am getting the error message "NO CONNECTION" when I try to go the android market...even though I am currently connected to the wifi network. what does this mean?

    when I first got the phone, I tried downloading angry birds, and the phone froze then when I turned it off and turned it back on, it made a sound like a burglar alarm. ????what the helll??? had to turn it off and then it was okay and was able to download.

    haven't had a chance yet to download many apps. So far, I like the screen but the browsing experience doesn't seem as crisp and as smooth as my brothers iphone.

    I also cannot believe that the new phones haven't gotten the hint that a dedicated camera button would be nice. they put these great cameras in their phones and then make you tap the screen to take a photo..what is that about?

    the battery doesn't seem that great. I haven't had another android phone to compare it to, but it seems the battery is half gone by lunch time. and connecting the phone to a computer via the usb doesn't seem to work...it seems to only really charge when it's plugged into the wall.

    will keep you informed. as it stands right now, it is 50/50. by the way, was looking at the iphone 4s, skyrocket and the HTC vivid.

    I have more to add.

    the phone's usb connection is on top....I hate that...I think that you can forget ever getting a docking station like an iphone...not with it on top and not the bottom. Also, maybe I am being petty..but $250 and the phone does not come with earphones! cheap...cheap..LG!

    I'm kinda with you on the headphones. When I got the Captivate last year, I was surprised at how good the earbuds Samsung provided were and it wasn't even touted as a multimedia powerhouse. In the case of this phone, it's an omission that is pretty annoying, but at least they're not like Apple and give the same craptacular earbuds with each device. I guess sometimes it's better not to do something at all than to do something half-assed and cheaply.

    Earlier you mentioned the lack of a camera button and considering the right side of the phone is pristine and buttonless, it's not like LG didn't have space for it.

    thanks for the reply washrob78. got headphones. it seems the connection of the usb to the computer works IF you use the LG usb. it seems a generic usb does not quite fit, so the connection wasn't complete. now the phone is charging fine off the computer.

    liking the phone better. I do want to say a positive about the phone...it feels very light in the pocket. the iphone feels much heavier..maybe some will take that as a good thing. i also had bought this phone because I love the textured back..it helps you to not lose your grip on the phone.

    i downloaded a fm app but it didn't work...I did like the fact that the HTC vivid had a built in fm radio..not an app, a radio. does anyone have any radio apps that actual pick up stations (not some pandora-like app, but an actual tuner) ?

    Earbuds? Really, that is a deciding factor? First of all, smartphones of today can't compete with purpose built mp3 players(like Cowon). As the earbuds they give in all phones suck. To the average music listener they are fine...but for real music listening try some Westone or high grade Shure earbuds, those are proper.

    I still love the phone...sure it has a few problems, but I can over look those things.

    I just got the LG Nitro and have a question. It appears that when I turn off the Wi-Fi I also drop my 4G connection. Am I missing a setting?

    I noticed that LTE connection only gets dropped during a phone call. Switches back to regular 4G.

    As far as lag. Once you root it, hard reset (different from factory reset) and put a launcher like ADW, there is virtually no lag. It works juat as well as my Atrix 4G before. Plus the UI looks much nicer.
