Reaching EOL but very good entry level Phone
I have had this Phone for about 3 years, when I first got this phone it did everything I wanted.
Now newer apps tend to run slow or will not run at all (Due to out of memory errors)
I had to uninstall many apps I liked on the phone just to keep the ones I need working due to low memory (This phone only has 512).
I added a 32GB high speed memory but that did not help, problem is "Phone shares memory"
You really only get 360MB RAM and 214MB internal storage (SD card is added to this) I know it equals 574 but I think that there is some SIM memory added in.
Your Apps need some "internal memory" even if save on SD card. so that is why I ran out of space the 214MB internal is the big issue.
But if you want an entry level Android phone that is durable and will last a long time for VERY LOW COST.
This phone will work

Lots of Great features.
I have bought 2 of these phones so far.I do agree with the other person,That after a year the phone does it's own thing,like going blank,shutting down,etc.take the back off,pull the battery,replace it and it's ok again. But on the positive side,phone isn't very costly and it has everything,from talk text to ask the lady directions..I LIKE this phone.

Terrible Phone to have
I had this phone for almost a year when it started acting up on me. If would start by turning itself off and then back on. Sometimes it wouldn't even turn itself back on at all. And if that was the case, you had to take the battery out and put it back in for it to somewhat work. After you put the battery back it, it would come on immediately, only all of the programs wouldn't be loaded properly, or my 3G would go away. To fix this, I then had to manually turn my phone off then back on. This process took a while, and it wouldn't have bothered me as much if it wasn't doing it 5-10 times a day. Eventually, chargers stopped working with it. Only one could actually charge my phone. So I will never, and i mean NEVER buy an LG phone again.

Am having fun with this slider
I spent alot of money on other phones, but none seemed right...this one seems right. I can use the keyboard, instead of the one on screen, which makes writing SO much easier. I haven't had any problems with lock-ups, yet, and the calls are clear.
