Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for a first phone After having this phone for almost three years, I must say it has held up quite well. This is my first touchscreen phone - my old one was a Motorola flip phone. One thing I liked about this phone was that it was simple to use, with no hidden features. During the first few months, the phone was quick to respond, which I liked. Another thing I liked was its durability. I've dropped this phone countless times all over the place; on cement, on hardwood, in the toilet (twice), and it's even been in the washing machine (by accident of course!) The phone came out with a few dents and scratches, but still works nicely. A downside to this is that the battery pops out most of the time when it drops. The camera was decent; it had cool features but the resolution wasn't very good. The shutter is pretty slow. Considering Froyo is outdated now, it has slowed down and often froze. At times I had to take out the battery and wait a few minutes to let it cool down. Another thing is that the screen is too small for me, but that varies for every person. Sometimes the phone can't read my SD card, so I have to turn the phone off and take the SD card out and replace it again. Battery life is simply amazing. On a typical day, I would be playing music, calling and texting, social media, and so forth. By the time before I go to sleep, there would usually be about 30% left of battery. It doesn't seem like much, but 30% can last for about an hour or so, which is great for me. I'm not sure what would be the outcome for the average heavy user. Overall I think that the LG Phoenix is a great first phone. Despite its flaws (which every phone has), it's perfect for a first-time Android user.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it!!! I have had this phone for over a year, in this time i have dropped it, drop kicked it (accidentally) and nearly drowned it, on more than one occasion. Just when i think i've killed it it rises from the ashes. Reading other reviews i noticed people having issues with the phone freezing, i dont have this problem. Either i got the one good phone or those people are... Well anyway, a few of you know what i', talking about, as for the rest of you... i think your phone froze up again. With that said this model is discontinued so none of this really matters, does it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone I have read most of the reviews and I've noticed that most of them are against this phone. The battery isn't the best but Android is something that tends to use alot of the memory rather quickly. The only downside is that the camera has no flash! That's the only problem that I see. :D

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tough Phone I have had this phone for almost two years, and with me that says alot!!! It is extremely rugged and can handle being dropped with out damaging the LCD. I have dropped it into almost 1/2 and inch of motor oil and it still works. The only drawback is the limited phone memory so you can't have too many apps, other than that is is an awesome phone.
