Good price, but thats it.
Not a bad phone in theory - makes calls, texts, has a lot of apps to choose from etc. But the keyboard is incredibly fidgety, and it constantly tells me I have no space, despite having a near empty SD card (and my mother and brother had the same issues with this phone as well), making it basically unusable.
All around a very annoying phone to use. But it does do what I truly need it to do, which is make calls and texts, although in a very fidgety manner.

okay phone but wouldnt recommend it...
I got this phone only a few days ago but i already think im going to hate it. It is really hard to text on because if i try to type a word like "for" it comes out as ffoorr. It is also giving me a hard time at managing my apps. i cannot delete any because if i press down it opens them instead of moving them. It may be a cool and attractive looking smartphone but i would not recommend it for people with little tolerance for company errors.

This Product is okay.
I have had this product for a good 2 years and like many, looking forward to my upgrade. I believe that this is a good starter hone for a child. 2 years ago this phone competed with many but now is left in the dust. I like it before it received its 2.3 gingerbread update. Once it received that is started to lag, but still kept. After so long you can start to feel the age of the phone and realize that new one is needed. You should not keep this phone for more th two years. Its okay has many features but again cant compete. The lack of specs make it not able to play/download certain apps or even watch/purchase movie in the play store. Lots of Pros ad cons.

Wish we never bought these Optimus phones!!!
We have had our phones for 2 years now.
One of the phones we have had replaced 6 times in 2 years. Thankfully we have the extra phone coverage through sprint at $8.00 a month. Both phones have had the GPS stop working, the screen goes blank, phones randomly call people. The text is very slow and it can take over a minute for a text to be sent and in the meantime, no other texts or calls will come in. The apps take up so much memory that we both had to take most apps off as there wasn't enough space.
We are done with our contract now so we are getting rid of these ASAP! One of us got the purple and one got the black. The purple phone has been way way worse. The black phone has its issues, but not quite as many. Not sure why the color would matter, but it seems like it has somehow made a difference.
