I just updated to kitkat. Download LG PC Suite and upgrade from there! The update didn't come from mobile updater, but only from PC suit!

Greetings from Greece.

thank you airidosas252 very much.

"-Stability really fluctuates, unfortunately. At one time, it works smooth as butter, at other time, it is so choppy."
it seems disappointing.

"-Battery don't drain that fast in standby as it did in Jelly Bean."
but in my phone battery is excellent in standby, sometimes no drain (even 1%) for 12 hours and longer. but it drains fast in non-standby.

It won't take long, I think, because P710 KK kernel sources are available, so it is like a reminder, that KK will be official soon. :)

Music player is refreshed, like a facelift, more like. There is better sound effects, much more eye candy UI. Music player widget is missing, unfortunately.
Knock code is nonexistent. KnockON is available, though.
Gallery didn't changed that much. Only feature I saw is the ability to share the files through SmartShare. And I can't look in the menu, because that button don't work. :D

Some other objections:
-There're a whole lot of bloatware, which really slows down general usage.
-Menu button at the moment doesn't work (wrong key mappings)
-It is unrootable at the moment.
-Whole new camera interface.
-Sound quality is a major improvement. It now delivers pure bass without the need for expensive headphones and cranking up all the low frequencies in the equalizer (which I did in Jelly Bean)
-Stability really fluctuates, unfortunately. At one time, it works smooth as butter, at other time, it is so choppy.
-Apps install faster (again thank Kitkat for that).
-Finally you can install additional fonts without the need for root access (nice one, LG)
-There is a problem with CPU speed - there are thermal configurations file inside etc folder, which controls CPU+GPU speed according to battery temperature. It is a HUGE need to edit this file, so the clock speeds won't be controlled anymore (which results constantly smooth operation)
-Download speed improved (some games only took a second or two to download, while bigger ones a minute or two, as Jelly Bean couldn't offer such download speed).
-And no, it doesn't support HW acceleration for 720p videos. Hardware doesn't allow it, so it isn't right to blame software or OS, in that matter, for this problem. To my eye, it now supports codecs better.
-Battery don't drain that fast in standby as it did in Jelly Bean.
-Useless recovery, the same as the Jelly Bean has.
-Old style lockscreen (not like L70, L90 have).
-No new wallpapers out of the box.
-Quick apps(search and Quickmemo) by swyping from the bottom to the top of the touchscreen (a feature borrowed from L70, L90).
-Better (only some) benchmark scores.
-Some apps now don't crash as it did in Jelly Bean.
-A problem with permissions: you can't write anything within the OS - you need to either connect your phone to PC or pull out your SD card and put it to other PC or tablet and etc. It can be fixed only if root access is available.
-One interesting thing: Retrica now renders image much quicker than it rendered in Jelly Bean. Dalvik VM really does magic in CPU related operations.
That's about it for now.
