    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.

    FULL DETAILS OF THE LG SPECTRUM 2 JB 4.1.2 UPDATE

    The update is a pretty sizable 449.9MB so it may take some time to download and install but it will bring Google Now, Notification Panel, Alarm Clock and more plus it’s also likely to include some Verizon fixes and changes.
    GOOGLE NOW
    Just the right information at just the right time. Get today’s weather before you start your day and know how much traffic to expect before you leave for work. Cards appear throughout the day automatically. Additionally, Google now is provided when selecting search on home screen. User can double tap the HW Home Key and add Google Now shortcut to lock screen.

    NOTIFICATION PANEL
    Take action directly from the notifications panel. Send emails, return calls and share photos. Notifications are expandable and you scan multiple emails, see event details or full images and more. User will enjoy an added brightness control bar and label for “clear” button.

    ALARM CLOCK
    Application link option is added for user’s alarm clock. User can select an app to auto-launch when user stops alarm. For example, if weather is selected, the user will be presented with Weather app screen when stops the alarm.User can set a music file as an alarm sound.

    DEVICE ENHANCEMENTS
    Weather application and widget have been updated
    NFC LG Tag+ help has been improved
    Brightness option has been moved to notification panel for global access
    Browser now loads Google account bookmarks
    Improved readability for email conversation
    Optimized Bluetooth® connect/disconnect and audio stream switching implementations
    User can back up contacts when the SIM is swapped to a new device
    Preloaded widgets including Social+, Today+, Finance, News and Power Control have been removed

    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 don't spend much time on my phone so my battery life is usually about 70% at the end of the day. Wifi is on all day. You might try running "Clean Master" and make sure "Autokill" is on.

    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).

    Thanks!

    you MUST use the new cwm for jelly bean here: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=243091

    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. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=243052

    you will have to use the lg recovery tool to restore to stock to unbrick. http://rootzwiki.com/topic/36201-so-bricked/page__st__10#entry1043166

    Thanks for everyone's hard work trying to get the boot loader to "spread its legs".

    No, this unit is not receiving a lot of love... though I believe it worth the attention.

    The bootloader has been deemed unbreakable..... Many of the new devices from vzw will be this way. The one, s4,and note 3 are ones that will also most likely never be cracked... After all the controversy when the note 2 got cracked vzw has had a bad grudge against the dev community (even worst than normal) the and has made it their big goal to lock down all these devices.

    Bypassed not unlocked... It uses the same method some of the motos used to use. It's actually the bypassed that was first introduced on the Korean version.

    This phone is awesome. I really love it. I live in Karachi (Pakistan) and bought this phone because it was fully unlocked and better then Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD specially LG IPS True HD display. The battery life is also good. Now I am facing update problem on Wifi after upgrading its firmware version (VS93022A) from computer.

    Just picked up this phone today (to replace my HTC Incredible) at a verizon store. Got a $100 rebate so it only cost me $30.
    I wasnt even planning on getting a new phone, I went in to help my sis out by giving her one of my old phones and we needed to swap numbers etc.
    So I didnt get to even to do any research of this unit, which isnt the norm for me. What should I know about this phone?
    I read the specs and stuff on the first page here and it sounds like a great phone. I went out
    after getting it and took some pics and vids and I'm pretty impressed with what it can do so far.

    I wasn't aware the spectrum 2 was still sold new... Is it the G2 maybe?

    Verizon is still selling their remaining stock and with a $100 rebate its free if you buy from a verizon store with a 2yr contract.
    My wife got the LG G2 and it costs $200 with a new 2yr contract.

    So far I'm liking the phone. Dont care for all the bloatware, but in about a year I"ll root the phone and get rid of most of it.
    Battery life is so so, but I keep a charger in my car so its not a big issue.
