One word: TERRIBLE I've had this phone for over a year and it is honestly one of the worst phones I've ever had. It freezes up a lot, the volume, including in-call volume, is terrible, there are so many pre-installed applications that you can basically not download any of your own applications, and it tends to be very slow. If you're looking for a very basic smart phone that serves the purpose of a mobile device that you can occasionally use to get online, but you're still mostly just interested in using it for the occasional phone call or text message, this may be a phone that would be of interest to you, but otherwise, I highly recommend avoiding the purchase of this phone.

Worst LG phone I've ever had This is a horrible phone! It comes with TONS of JUNK pre-installed apps that use up all the memory. It constantly locks up, goes blank, freezes,etc. For the price you pay this phone should be ALOT better! It takes forever to open up most apps. The camera is slow... I just have nothing good to say about this phone... My previous phone was a LG and it was awesome, sad to say this LG phone is a total flop! May 22, 2013
Great smartphone! This smartphone is very smarter, great features and very valuable. It is easy to use and I fun with it! Zero problem. August 3, 2012
I am very happy with my LG Thrive Have had my phone for about a month now, and have had no problems at all, as above reviews have. I am told this is an entry-level smart phone, so it's been just fine for me. The screen is bright, call quality is pretty good, (I am used to Verizon, this is AT&T). The battery life is only fair, but that's to be expected with all the programs running. Never had the screen drop off like previous reviewer, I have a screen protector over the screen, which makes it a little less sensitive to navigate, but all in all, I am happy with the phone. This was one of 4 phones offered in my Consumer Cellular program with AARP, so not a lot of choices there. April 30, 2012
