What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Long term user losing patience I bought it in December 2010, as a first time smart phone user I had no issues. As my demands grew I realised this phone just couldn't keep up. It is so slow at times it takes all my self control not to throw it out of the nearest window, it supports very few aps (can't even run words with friends) and the calibration of the touch screen isn't great. Takes decent photos but would have been better with a flash/light. The battery is temperamental at best, sometimes it lasts 2 days, sometimes 2 hours. Worst thing though is its unreliability, sometimes I don't receive text messages, when people call and ask if I got their message I turn off the phone and when I restart it the message comes through (often multiple times). For a cheapish, bare basic smart phone it was ok but doesn't perform well lomg term or when asked to keep up with a moderate smart phone user, Definitely no good for those who live on/through their phones.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My First Smartphone, I love LGs, this one is not as good as previous LG phones. I bought this LG 5405 8 months ago, I have mixed feelings about it, Pros. For phone is great. never drops out during calls, I can go to Facebook quickly, the battery life is approx 48 hours depending on use, and I like the Live wallpapers. the Cons,Can be so slow, most annoying is when it constantly Force Closes when I am writing an email and the email is deleted, so frustrating, or it will tell me it's busy, what it's doing I dont know??, not much internal memory either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Upgrade to android 2.1 I have found this to be a good phone particularly after upgrading from android 1.6 to android 2.1. This made a big difference to the phone and I would recommend for anyone with this phone to upgrade the operating system. I haven't had the problems that the other reviewers have had with this phone and would happily recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stupid Phone I bought this from vodafone. I have tried repairing it several times but everytime returned back without fixing it saying test doesnt show anything wrong with wat i am lying for this cheap phone. * my wifi automatically switches off * battery shows full one min and next min i will get low battery message and few mins later goes back to green. So LG and Vodafone sent this back 3 times and now i am out of warranty and cant do anything so i will be going to train station to leave this on train track. Not recommended
