What's wrong with the Korean build?
Also, Samsung had a bad rep for lack of support, but that changed when they started to work with google on the nexus products. That could be the same with LG now. I know it's a long shot but maybe they will start support like Samsung did with their hands on the nexus line now as well.
The note seems too big for me, but I won't know till I go into the store and take a look. As of right now, I am very interested in this phone, but still trying to figure out the issue with LG since I have never used them before.
