So what is the big deal about 4.3 vs 4.2.2? What are the differences?
I've moved from 4.2 to 4.3 on my Asus tablet, and the feature I'm appreciating the most is the ability to turn off permissions on apps, like...an LED "torch" light that wants network access as well as access to your contact list. OK, that's a fake example afaik but you get the idea!
Oh that's huge... one of the things that annoys me most about apps is the bizarre permissions they want access to. Facebook for example. My current Bionic has a very old version of it because the new one wants very invasive access. If you could limit some of those permissions that would be awesome!
Definitely my favorite. Sorry, forgot to include a link:

Here's my second favorite 4.3 feature:
AnandTech | Android 4.3 Update Brings TRIM to All Nexus Devices
In a nutshell, fstrim runs nightly, clearing up free space AND more importantly, notifiying the eMMC memory manager that it's available (which normally doesn't occur until the space is needed for writing). It first made headlines when the 2nd gen Nexus 7 came out -- as it was added back to the 1st gen N7, people were amazed at how zippy their year-old tabs became!

TRIM is the big one for me. That's why I asked.
I'm thinking LG will update this phone once. At least.
Yeah, I agree. I'd happily bet $5 we'll see 4.3 on the G2. Kitkat...not so much.
It definitely has the specs capable for chocolate update

Yeah but I agree with the OP that LG doesn't have a good track record. Speaking of specs...Asus stopped updating my OG Transformer at ICS, and (thanks to a dedicated dev) I'm not only running 4.3 on it but it is one of the best Android experiences I've had. It's SO FRUSTRATING that there are so many middlemen between Google and our devices (unless you have a Nexus, Android Experience phone, etc.)!
Even with Nexus there seems to be delays.. I do agree with ya.. One of the many reasons I root and ROM my phones.. I hate waiting..
