EASIEST PHONE TO BREAK
the quality of display and speed are amazing. it has amazing battery life and a high quality camera, the problem I have is that I have had the phone for 2 months, and have broken it three times, I went outside it was hot came inside it was cool, looked and the back had shattered, not cracked, shattered. then another time I dropped it and the screen cracked. not a problem right? well the half with the crack would not respond to touch. then today it fell out of my pocket and the screen shattered and the phone wont respond at all, so its a great phone if you never take it anywhere.

Overall an ok phone for medium users
When I first got this phone I was in love with it. The screen was way bigger than my previous phone, the processor was faster, the storage was vastly improved. It quickly became my new favorite toy, and best phone I had owned.
After a few weeks to month of regular use it got to where I had to charge it twice a day. The battery life went to heck once you start actually using the phone. I had a couple widgets running (weather & facebook) and the battery only lasted about 4-5 hours with other use. I disabled all widgets, now it lasts about 8 hours with regular use.
It was VERY hard to find a case for this phone and the one I ended up with made the phones 3x bulkier than it was and impossible to tote around. Of course as it always happens I dropped it within a week of taking it out of the case and shattered the back. (complete spiderweb)
The phone is EXTREMELY slick & slippery. I couldn't even rest it on the arm of a leather couch/chair without it sliding off. Poor design to make something so slippery, so fragile.
I wouldn't recommend this phone to a teenager or novice smart phone user because it will get broken. Probably pretty quickly. I wouldn't recommend it to advanced users because the camera could be better, and the battery suffers.
If you don't use your phone for social media, or internet very often...or if you don't do much talking/texting but have experience with smart phones, this would be an ok phone for you.
I won't replace this one with another Optimus G (or LG at all)

The only issue I've ever had with this phone were caused by my negligence when leaving the phone upon my car. I have never had any technical issues otherwise. Perfect size.

overall a great phone
The screen is large and sharp, some operations are not obvious and the mail program has a serious problem that makes it pretty useless, namely, when it is deleting, if a new email becomes available, the program crashes and you have to go back and reselect the emails you want to delete and try again. Sometimes this can take forever as emails arrive faster than it deletes them. It also seems to lose emails I thought I had left on the phone for future use.
