Rated 2 out of 5 by from very good looking but very disappointed on 3g.. I have this phone and i really like this phone.. Its really slim and easy in use.. but when u use 3g on this phone then its is very disappointing.. this phone is only 3 months old and i have to recharge it 2 times in a day.. i use net on my phone and if i m using continue, its give only 3 to 4 hour backup.. this is really bad...only looks gud but very bad in using on 3g..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great phone This phone is slim and light weight, has lots of features but the battery lets it down, i have to charge up at least once a day compared to my old Blackberry which was once every other day. If LG sorted out this problem then i would be 100% happy with this phone
