What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased in 2010 Using as home and mobile since 2010, great reception, excellent camera, lots of storage, fast wi-fi, good battery life, excellent optics. Nokia was my go-to cell but this is the best cell I have ever used, great product, good value unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have had 3 of these phones and the glass cracked The first phone was sent to my son in college. He tossed it on the bed and it bounced to a carpeted floor and the screen cracked. It was barely used for 1 hour. We had to get him a second and that glass lasted 2 months. We purchased a 3'rd phone, for our other son and it lasted 1 month. I give up, may I should have had girls.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleek Design The best thing about this phone is its sleek design. This is my first LG device and I love it. I have not dropped it yet, so I am not sure about the durability but most phone screens would crack if they were dropped too. I love the speed and the amount of internal memory in this big guy! It is awesome! I have had samsungs, blackberrys, and I am coming from an iphone. They are all nice but this one has to be one of my favs. There is one downside to this phone though. The camera is not the best. The clarity in the photos are not very good. Otherwise, everything else is great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very quick, but can be lagged down at times I found this device to be very difficult to organize however, once you figure out your own needs it can be very effective. Find what you need at a moments notice !

Rated 2 out of 5 by from If you break the screen-don't bother fixing it.... buy something else!I did just that,I dropped it and the screen just shattered.I got it fixed and is worse than it was before!It is suppose to be a 4G but it never has gotten that high,mine ,maybe ,went as high as 3(I may as well have kept my old flip phone!).The reception is terrible for me and for people who call me.And ,last week,the back of my phone shattered-I did'nt drop it-not sure what happened-dropped it on a surface a bit too hard maybe?Luckily I had a protector on so the back did'nt fall on the ground in pieces.So it does still work.I will never buy another LG again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from can not complain. I have had this phone for almost a year. unlike the other reviewers, i have dropped my phone many times. It has never cracked and has minimal scratches even after falls on concrete. Q-slide comes with the phone and works flawlessly. This performance of the quad core means that you will be able to play top titles for many years. Recently got updated to jellybean which i was very pleased about, I hope LG continues to improve and update. my only single complaint is battery life could be better i would give it a 6.5 out of 10. It lasts me the day with 10 percent to spare with moderate use.
