Rated 4 out of 5 by chuckboo65 Not bad for a first touch screen.
I bought this phone about a month ago and am still trying to figure it out. The screen is too sinsitive for an older person.

The accidental hang up issue, when you answer/make a call once connected, press the lock at the top of the phone. You will avoid that issue. Phone has an easy voice system, press and hold the center button below the display. The phone will go into voice command mode. Simply state, "call smith" or "messages" basic feature but nice for hands free states.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Moviegal1979 Big Mistake!
I bought this phone a month ago & it was the worst mistake of my life. I can barely do ANYTHING with this phone. There is hardly any reception. I can not put any music on it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Vecchiaccio Lame. I sent it back.
Cheaper feel, worse ca,era than my old Pantech. The color was the only thing I liked about it.

A good phone if you drop everything like I do. This phone I've dropped over 20 times or more

The LG Expression 2 was my first touchscreen phone. I previously had a flip phone and did not use texting.
I have been doing battle with this phone for four months. I am returning the phone this morning. I waited so long because I thought the problems I was experiencing were a result of my making errors with my first touchscreen and texting phone.
I finally broke down and read some reviews only to discover that the phone, not I, was the source of the problems.
Here is what you will experience with the LG Expression 2:
You place a phone call to an automatic answering system. By the time you have to "press 1 for English," the touchscreen has gone blank and you have to fumble around to reactivate it. By the time you manage that, the automatic answering system is becoming impatient with you.
You place a call. The recipient answers. You begin your conversation. The recipient soon sounds confused and slightly desperate because he cannot hear you, although you can hear him perfectly. (This happened twice in a row to me while I was talking to my doctor. I resorted to using my land line. Glad I happened to be at home.)
You are walking down the street/upstairs doing your laundry. Your elderly mom calls you out of the blue all upset and asks why you just called her and were unresponsive when she answered. You did not call her. Your phone miraculously unlocked its own screen, went to the window for placing phone calls, and placed a phone call to your mom--all of its own volition. To quote Gomer Pyle: "Surprise, surprise, surprise!"
Your phone screen says "slide up to unlock." It takes several attempts to get it to unlock. In the meantime, the phone continues to ring. People around you begin looking annoyed.
You touch a number or an icon on your screen repeatedly, and nothing happens. You wonder if throwing the phone against a wall might enhance its responsiveness.
You are texting. You hear a click, and the icon suddenly jumps backward into the middle of a word you have already typed, causing you to insert words into the middle of other words. This necessitates deleting the word-inside-a-word and laboriously repositioning the icon so you can resume texting your message.
You are texting. An incoming text message appears on your screen. Your screen locks, and you are unable to proceed with your message until you stop and open the incoming text message.
You have received a fairly long text message. You click on it to open it up. It will then not enable you to scroll down through the message so you can read all of it. When you attempt to scroll down on the touchscreen, the message closes and you have to reopen it.
You send a text message to multiple recipients. The screen will not show you all of the people to whom you sent the message--just the first person in the list of contacts.
I have tried to use the internet a couple of times from the phone, and I have given up in despair.
There is no owner's manual for this phone. Nothing is particularly intuitive when it comes to operating it, and so an owner's manual would seem to me to be a sine qua non.
My friends tell me I should get an iPhone. I do not need an iPhone. I just need a reliable phone for calling and texting and--perhaps--occasionally looking up a movie showtime on the internet. I'm a simple guy with simple needs.
Unless you enjoy aggravation, I strongly suggest you find another phone. I got this one for "free" with my plan. I feel like charging AT&T a fee for all of the angst the phone has caused.
LG Expression 2: an unmitigated disaster unfit for marketing. The company would do well to recall it for fear of wrecking its reputation.
