What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awful This phone was amazing for the first six months then it all started to go down hill now this phone is useless. I would rather leave my house and depend on a a dead fish strapped to my thigh for communication over this awful piece of machinery. I bought this in 2011 and now all it does it cause me problems 1: Crashes 3-5 times a day for no reason 2: Battery life is three hours if I'm lucky. 3: Adding music or deleting music has no longer become an option. 4: All apps are can't update or run anymore I think the only app I have left is weather and shazam 5: The plug has become so loose that if you look at it too hard it seems to unplug on it's own. 6: The battery swells up and over heats. I've replaced it three times now. So if you find yourself too happy all the time and need something to drive you bonkers buy this phone. If you need something dependable don't even glance at LG

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Phone I had the P999/G2X Version from Wind Mobile. No updates, 2.2 Froyo. I had this phone for 3 years, it served its purpose. First year it was great, worked perfectly. Second year it started to be very buggy and laggy, operating system corrupted, lost all my data and had to use system restore...twice! Third year was just horrendous, random reboots, battery life of around 10 hours, super laggy. Verdict: The phone's software became obsolete. There were no updates for the P999, causing each app update to make the phone run slower and slower. The hardware is good and the build quality is good (dropped it a few times) It is a decent phone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as advertised Advertised as up-gradable, it's not. Supposed to work outside of Canada, it doesn't. Randomly reboots, burns through the battery in a couple of hours. Phone overheats and tech supports answer is to hard reload. Only slightly better than the Windows 6.5 phone I had before. Don't think I'll buy another LG and seriously reconsidering Wind.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I cannot believe I bought this phone I bought this phone from Wind after reading about it online back in 2011 and was pretty excited to get it. It was definitely a terrible idea to purchase this phone because all it does is reboot randomly. The battery drains within a few hours over 3G even when it is idle and the only way I have figured out to save the battery is by always keeping my wifi on. I really wish LG would update the software but don't see that happening after seeing nothing has been done so far with all these negative reviews.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful phone! I cannot believe I have another 1.5 years on contract with this phone, it is monumental rubbish... I am especially displeased with the fact that I cannot upgrade the OS on it; I am very upset that I am unable install quite a few apps from the google play store... I will never buy another LG phone, ever, ever again... Also, WIND mobile needs to have more phones that are current, rather than ones that are behind in technology and have OS that cannot be updated... Very poor all the way around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from this product has great durability, I have had this phone for a little over 1 year, and i must say it is simple to operate i use it for calls, tex ,Email and all wifi and have had no hangups,as others have said, and as for durability, i will vouch and with proof, that this phone is 100% water resistant, for I did my laundry and the phone was left in my coat pocket, and i accidentaly put the coat in the wash,with the phone in the pocket it went through the wash cicle,then the rense cicle,then it went into the dryer where i discover it,due to the loud thump it made every time the dryer rotate, Note the glass was cracked before this misap, when i removed it it was soaked,the screen was full of water battery was dead nothing wroked,but after drying it out by means of room heater then recharging the battery low and behold to my surprise it worked fine, and never skip a beat since,Will purchse the Optimus G as soon as i have enough Cash on hand, and would reccomand LG to all Family and Friends, Yours Truely Carlos
