First Android I ever owned...
Most ratings on here talk about how bad this phone is; how it's so slow and barely has any memory. Call me biased or nostalgic, but this WAS a great little phone.
This phone is close to 3 years old as of writing this review. I used it for well over a year, and while I had issues with it, I loved that phone and it performed.
It was durable. I had no case on it for months. I dropped it many times and it never quit chuggin'. It was small and responsive, but the screen was tiny, even back then. The internal memory would need to be watched, but with a large MicroSD card, it was never an issue.

The worst phone I have ever owned.
I have never had a worse phone in my life. This is the slowest, clunkiest, and worst excuse for a smartphone. I have been using this for a week while my Galaxy Note 2 gets repaired and sent back to me and can't wait to be able to chuck this thing into a fireplace.

Loved it new
Now that I've had the Optimus V for over a year, I am constantly getting messages rejected, saying the Memory is Low. I rarely download. I use only a handful of APPs. So I've tried to troubleshoot. Cleared all Text messages. Deleted any upgrades on everyday apps. I'd love to delete the permanently installed Google apps that I never use, but it's not allowed.
The phone is slow moving in FB and Google searches. I rarely can watch YouTube without the video hanging.
This phone's got so many good features that I love. I can't believe that now, this low memory thing is so frustrating.

This phone is pretty much typical of LG phones. It works great for the first few months, and then it stops working properly. It doesn't receive texts in order, freezes when I try and text, sometimes closes out completely, randomly calls people when it's supposed to be locked in my pocket, and constantly gives me warnings about my memory, even though I barely have anything on the phone, as well as a micro chip inserted. It's a good phone if you need something to take across seas for.. maybe a semester abroad. As for day to day use- it won't stand up strong for a reasonable amount of time. In the past year, I've gone through two.
