Same here, I use my phone pretty heavily and I still have about 50-70% battery life at the end of the day.
No battery life issues though oddly I now have "skips" in my bt headphones during music playback that weren't present on ICS? Very odd. Anyone else?

JB 4.1.2 UPDATE CAUSING PROBLEMS FOR SPECTRUM 2
Did you update to Spectrum 2 to Jelly Bean 4.1.2 when it became available earlier in the month? Is it working perfectly? Well if that’s the case, you’re one of the lucky ones. It appears that a growing group of people are having issues with the Jelly Bean update. A tipster told Phone Arena that Verizon has received numerous complaints on the matter. People are having issues with dropped phone calls, widgets not updating, and apps not working at all.
Some Android apps that worked previously don't work with the new update and may need to be updated to correct this issue. Until this is done, I recommend trying a alternative Android applications.
HOW TO DISABLE AUTOMATIC UPDATES
Go to >Settings >Developer Options and uncheck the "don't keep activities" box
HOW TO DOWNLOAD THE UPDATE
Go to >Settings >General >About Phone >Software Update > Update Now, and follow the prompts.

Battery life is terrible now, can barely get through a day when I use to be able to get through two on IC, don't really make calls often, but so far drops have not been an issue. Probably going back to IC because the battery life is just utter sh*t.
I was on Facebook and came across an LG Spectrum 2 page that was using the original LG Spectrum as the profile and cover photo pics, and had no useful info about this phone SMH! Long story short giving are amazing phone a bad rep. So I made new one with a link to the LG Spectrum 2 main section of this site. This site to date is the most helpful for are phones and I wanted to get the word out. So if you guys use Facebook and can take the time to like the page that would be great.

I have a soft bricked phone (at least I think it is soft bricked). So after trying to figure out ROMs for my Spectrum 2 (first time), I somehow no longer have root, or any access to my mobile network, or even to wifi, but anything android still works. What happened is I had downloaded and installed the CWM given toward the beginning of this thread, and after hitting the 2nd-intl button, I restarted my phone. Upon restart, everything was gone, and the restart in recovery option did nothing through the CWM given. So now my phone is useless, except for my non web based apps (AKA useless). Any ideas as to what went wrong or what I could do to fix it? I would gladly appreciate a walk through to unbrick the phone (if that is even possible at this point).
Recovery for the Spectrum 2 (JELLY BEAN)
also there are NO working roms for the spectrum 2, just root using the new motochopper root method (the old method you for ics you probably used will NOT work for jb) and recovery. Root Jelly Bean (Spectrum 2)
you will have to use the lg recovery tool to restore to stock to unbrick. http://rootzwiki.com/topic/36201-so-...0#entry1043166
