What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Nokia of Touchscreens This phone's amazing. After multiple times of dropping it, the screen remained intact. It only cracked when I dropped it on concrete while running; while the screen did crack, there were no shards nor did it affect the phone's performance. Then a few months later I accidentally put it in with the wash. It went through the entire wash cycle and was only found as the clothes were being put in the dryer. I took apart the major pieces and let it air dry. The thing STILL WORKED. It only started going crazy two years after the laundry incident, and even then it's manageable quirks (minor temporary glitches like exiting an app out of nowhere, requiring several presses on the touchscreen, etc). I also really like that it has the qwerty keyboard pull-out option; I hate typing with touchscreen three-letters-per-number, and this is the best of both worlds. The downside: It takes FOREVER to turn on and off (or maybe that's just mine after all the scrapes it's been through...)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good if you like the pull out keyboard Pros: slide out keyboard, easy to get apps, good battery life, nice camera Cons: Can be unresponsive coming out of sleep mode, too many installed apps makes the phone too slow, can't send MMS texts without data plan (plain texts are ok), can't upgrade OS despite expired LG claims ("we're planning on it", then never happened) I've dropped my phone a few times - still works. It's easy to use USB with it. OS is easy to work with. Sometimes the phone is unresponsive/extremely slow when coming out of sleep mode (screen off) - you have to press the "Home" button to "wait it up"/un-freeze it. The phone will very noticeably slow down when you have too many apps installed - it'll make the 1GHz processor crawl. :P I've never had a data plan, so I use it for phone, SMS (simple text) messaging, and some apps. I use data when on wifi only - that part works great. Bluetooth works great too. You can only remove pre-installed apps with a root browser. :P

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No complaints, love the keyboard It's served me well for over two years, been around the world and survived being dropped at least 20 times (I've gone through three cases which have taken the brunt of the impact). Bought it specifically for the keyboard, which works great. Battery life is reasonable. Camera is as expected and takes excellent video, especially in daylight. Good looking phone, too. A bonus: have used it as a WiFi 'tether' for my laptop and works nearly as quickly as my cable-based home service. Only real complaint is that it has slowed, especially on the Net, over the past year, but I didn't buy it for surfing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS PHONE! I have had this phone for over a year and I LOVE it. It is so easy to use, and even if you don't know how to use it at first, it is easy to 'go back' to the last place you were when you are first learning. It has a great camera and I am impressed with how the pictures turn out. And I love the qwerty keyboard, making texting so simple and quick, especially if you know the keyboard with your eyes closed. Just can't say enough great things about this product. I find LG products to be superior, and this is no exception. Love Love Love it! I use it for wifi internet as well, and find it great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the slide out Qwerty. I have owned this phone for about 2 years with no problems. I text a lot and the slide out Qwerty is great. The size of the screen is good. It is a little slow on the internet but I mostly use other devices for that. It is a good phone for anyone looking to upgrade to a smartphone for the first time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY!! Save yourself the frustration!! This is the worse phone i have ever had. I've had two of these phones and they both acted the same way. It pretty much does whatever it wants, if you open up an app there's a good chance (after it takes a good 2 minutes for it to finally open) that it will just close on you. Most of the time when i try to open an app using the shortcut on the home screen it doesn't do anything. The genius button is useless, it completely freezes my phone when i accidentally press the buttonIve had this phone for 2 years and I've never used the stupid G button. The battery only lasts me about 4-5 hours with normal usage, after charging it overnight i have to charge it about noon, and then again around 6. By the time i go to bed the battery is almost dead again. I could literally go on and on about how awful this phone is and how many times I've wanted to throw it out the window but i wont. Just do yourself a favor and don't buy it!!! The only good thing i have to say about this phone is the keyboard. The keys are spaces out perfectly, makes for easy and efficient typing. But that's all. Not worth the stress of dealing wih the touch screen.
