What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I WANT another one with an updated OS! I have had this phone for close to 4 years with NO problems. I would LOVE for LG to make another smart phone with a slider just like this one where the numbers have their own line. Like another reviewer I have a hard time texting on a screen as my fingers hit everything wrong and sometimes don't hit at all. The operating system is getting out of date (4.0) and it would be nice if the CEOs of the major companies would realize there are still folks who prefer physical keyboards- and not that BB thang that came out where even though they touted it as a "slider phone" it had no touch screen and the slider was a number/letter combo that was always difficult to master in the first place! PLEASE LG - make me another one of these with a new OS!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Phone, Great Value Phone does everything I expected from a smart phone, just a pleasure to use with even the supplied apps. Don't use the keyboard much once I discovered the microphone/audio input, but both work flawlessly. Camera is pretty good, but I still use my SLR when high-quality pics are needed. The price was great for all the functionality in this phone, just makes it a 5-start rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best LG phone available for me a QWERTY keyboard is a must. and since the cellphone market is so off from the consumers interests and doesn't make them anymore, i am chooising not to participate in the current smartphone market. i am buying another LG LS860 off ebay and activating it to use it for the next two years. hopefully in two years the ridiculous phablet fad will be out of style and manufacturers will realize that QWERTY keyboards are the way to go. until the market catches up with the consumer, i will continue to use the best QWERTY android available, the LG Mach, even into 2017

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, solid phone with a useful slideout keyboard Phone has a well built feel, (and has survived a few drops) and the keyboard works well when needed. The camera is acceptable, and it has reasonable speeds, although more customization of the OS would be nice. Performance and reception is good, the phone speaker is middling. The price was great for what it offers (it seemed to get overlooked), though it makes it hard to find some accessories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE this phone Try as I might... I cannot type on a touchscreen phone. Much to my joy, I found the Mach. It's awesome! I have the best of both worlds. I can slide out my keypad when I need to type more than a word or two, then use my touchscreen for the rest. The phone is not much thicker than other phones and has been durable with the purchase of an aftermarket cover. The only complaint I have is that you can't turn off the camera shutter sound. Otherwise, it's by far the best cell phone I've ever owned.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worst. Phone. Ever I have had this phone for close to a year and I have had problem after problem with it. This is the third time it has corrupted my SD card even when I got a brand new one. I am so displeased with this phone and can not wait to get a new one.
