Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good phone Using for last 3 years. Camera quality too good. Easy to use. Sound quality is also good. Has a few unwanted inbuilt apps, cannot uninstall them too. Only regret is the internal memory. Had a few issues with the touch pad, it doesn't work sometimes, starts working after a couple of days! Overall a good budget phone for long term use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good phone, great value. I used it with a prepaid for two and a half years I lost it last month. It dropped it many times and the screen never cracked (I never even put a case on it). It was also frequently thrown in a backpack pocket with pencils and such and the screen barely got scratched (even though I never put a screen protector on either). I also accidentally dumped water on it at least once and it recovered after a day or two in a bag of rice. I really like the physical return, home, menu and search buttons on the bottom of the screen compared that don't seem to be on phones much anymore. Also the camera was surprisingly good for 3.2 mp. The micro SD slot came in very handy in giving extra memory and is an easy way to get pictures off the phone. Although a great phone I did have a few problems with the software. It would either run very slow or the screen would freeze (especially if I hadn't restarted for a few days) forcing me to pull the battery. It had pretty good battery life by the way. As the phone got older I also had problems with the phone restarting on occasion when I would have an incoming call so I couldn't answer. Overall however I was very happy with this phone. I sometimes had to be slightly patient with it but it did everything I needed it to do and lasted a long time for a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Smart Phone Overall a great phone. The only downside is that I can't get the Bluetooth connection to work with my vehicle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Camera Feaures The best part of this mobile phone is Camera having the macros function, which help you to click the picture by 10cm distance. And awesome quality. You will only regret the internal memory of phone. Touch pad sensor is also great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Android 2.3 Compass Bug Be aware that Android 2.3 has a bug which prevents apps from correctly displaying compass heading information. LG refuses to deal with this problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Phone with Various Features. This phone has many features such as Facebook/Twitter, Varied amount of Apps you can download for it, aswell as a high quality camera/video. The only thing I can say is a negative, is once you play the games already pre-loaded on the phone, (As the games are trials), You can't delete the shortcuts on the menu, like that Brick Game/Tetris, Annoying having games there, you can't play nor get rid off. But thats a small negative for a overall good phone!. =)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value for money with superb performance We have purchased four of these phones since December 2011 due to its affordable price without compromise. I couldn't believe that a leading manufacturer was able to offer a quality product at such a good price - thank you LG, Google and Two Degrees Mobile Limited. I am also a photographer and found that the phone's camera works really well even indoors. As an IT student, this phone rocks !
