    I really like this phone. It's so thin and light, and the screen is beautiful. When I compare it to my sgs3, it holds up to it easily (i.e. performance & plenty features), which is pretty impressive for its price range.

    For those focused on the sgs3 having 1gig more ram... It hasn't made any difference for me. The spirit hasn't lagged on anything I've thrown at it (i.e. gaming and multi-tasking). As far as the camera, pictures are good in adequate lighting, and in low lighting with some settings adjustment pics are decent.

    Now that we have root and recovery, the phone is even better. You have even more freedom to make it your own. :cool:

    after having the Esteem and the great team over there, I'm really missing root and a Custom Rom from Ldrifta

    Hell Yeah. Totally wit you on that. I hope LDrifta gets this phone and brings some #2 love over here. LOL

    I was watching the S3 forum a bit, and I remember seeing him over there.

    GameTheory Well-Known Member

    I noticed, but I want to stay away from that forum so I don't get tempted to tinker with my s3. That's what the spirit is for. LOL

    I'm sure myself or someone else will ask him eventually if he'll be deving the spirit. Fingers crossed. :D

    got to get a root for this thing first.

    Yeah, they've got some really nice dev'ing going on over there. I really wanted to get that phone, but couldn't stomach the price; even though I think the price is worth it. I'm waiting on my tax refund to get my wife and I new phones. I'm a gonna get the Spirit and she'll probably get the Motion.

    I noticed in your screen shots that there's an app called backup. What does it back up? Where to? Internal or External SD?

    I'm glad you mentioned it. That app is pretty awesome.
    It comes with the phone and can backup:
    Home screens
    settings
    applications
    contacts

    You can backup to internal or external and even use schedules.

    I added three screenshots of the app to the link in the OP.

    Can a dev check what that backup app does to get access to the root of the phone that could be the answer to get root

    This x 1000. I believe the backup app is what was exploited to root the motion, but it doesn't work anymore.

    Maybe there is something different in the apk but i believe thats still the spirit weak side

    I'm really thinkin bout buying this phone. I just want to see what kind of attn it gets from the devs first. One thing I really don't like bout Metro is da bloat! WireflyDOTcom currently has the LG Spirit for $239.00 (free ship) less Metros $70.00 rebate...

    Own one for $169.00. That's a sweet deal :)

    I don't think you get the rebate if you buy from wirefly.

    from the looks of it, this phone as good as it is. isn't going to get much attention, and maybe not get rooted. Most people are bent on getting the SGS3

    Ok so I've been tinkering with the camera, and it's actually not bad.
    Just need to adjust settings.
    In camera app go to settings/scene mode/select smart shutter this works pretty good in low lighting
    Always make sure auto focus and auto flash is on.
    And if not needed bring zoom all the way down.
    Smart shutter always disables upon closing camera app so its a good idea to place the shortcut to scene mode on the quick bar. ;)

    P.S.
    I'm making a tutorial on how to mount this phone on ubuntu 12.04 & 12.10.
    If you guys need it let me know otherwise I'll post it when more people get this phone.

    We should be patient with root. The phone has only been out for a week.
    For now we should focus on bringing more attention to this phone.
    There has been root for most LG phones like the Motion & Esteem which this phone is much better than.

    Also this phone is doing well in sales. It has been sold out at a lot of metro stores.
    Where I purchased, I got 1 of 2 left. This is a positive sign for us.

    I purchased this phone expecting to wait 1-2 months for root, and I'll continue to be patient... I'm sure good things will come. ;)

    Someone mentioned previously, he might get this phone to help with root (I wont put him on blast). :D:p

    Here's a look at the LG ON-SCREEN PHONE feature in action with the SPIRIT 4G, and the Windows app download.

    Make sure to go to settings/pc connection/usb connection type/select LG software

    This is pretty awesome for screencasting tutorials on youtube. :cool:

    Thanks to Spdfreak34 for pointing this feature out on the phone.

    Enjoy :thumb:

    I purchased the indulge and the esteem from wireflyDOTcom cause they were waay cheaper, downloaded the rebate forms for both phones, submitted all info required and bam! Got both rebates. Unless metro changed their policy, I don't see why you wouldn't get ur rebate... Just gotta read the fine print ;)

    The Spirit streams to the TV via PS3 flawlessly... I've been using it without a hitch.

    In-action pics below

    Here's how it works.
    ---Go to market and install iMediaShare.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/...lt#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5iaWFub3IuYW1zIl0.
    ---Connect phone to home network
    ---Open iMS app and swipe all the way to the right... You can skip login... Now put phone down.
    ---Your PS3 can be connected to your network via wired or wifi... Doesn't matter.
    ---On PS3 make sure media server is enabled, then go to video/search for media servers
    Bam.. your in. Enjoy :D

    ***Tips***
    ---The back arrow closes app completely and disconnects from PS3, but if you hit the home button it stays connected and you can do anything on your phone while still streaming.
    ---Your PS3 can be connected wired or wireless, it doesn't matter (wired is best).

    Sup everyone.
    Was wondering what browser you guys/gals are using on the spirit, and what you recommend.
    I'm currently using chrome but considering something else.

    Thanks
