first smart phone It is my first smart phone, it is pretty fast, sometimes it freezes and i have to restart it but then it is fine, i have dropped it allot and it hasn't broke, i dropped it in water, put it in a dehydrator for an hour and it stills works great, i have had the phone for over a year and what upset me is that the price drastically dropped after i bought it and the camera lens is not recessed so it got scratched really bad from putting it in and out of my pocket and the lens is now to damaged to take a picture.

Excellent I love my cell. It was a gift but i had researched and decided on LG. I love all its features and its High Quality It can survive a lot drops. I heard and seen, many iphones, crack and break instantly. Never ever, do i have that issue with my LG. I feel blessed, not bragging but blessed. I look forward to more accessories and other versions, for cell two. My LG will be a yr old next summer, so in my experience; no issues. PPL differ. January 10, 2014
Well hard to say..... This is my second smart phone, I was with Metro pcs before and the phone like any other became old. The touching of the screen is what becomes the issue down the road. I don't do business on it, it isn't my only source for a phone, I get decent coverage within my house I say this cause it does switch to roaming quite a bit. I got the phone on clearance at Meijer's and I needed a new phone and couldn't afford Metro anymore so I opted for this. I had Virgin Mobile before no issues so I returned. November 23, 2013
Best entry phone available on VM Coming from them Optimus one which in itself was a great phone that did exactly what is expected of an entry level phone, the Elite feels more like an Optimus One 2. LG really took the time to look at the shortcomings of the Optimus One and perfected them. The first thing to notice is the 3.5 "display that makes a huge difference even if it's only fractions of an inch bigger than the One specially of you have big fingers like myself. Next is the internal storage which, at a generous 4096 MB, is eons way bigger then the One. Actual app space is divided into two partitions shared between the OS and the actual app space but still you shouldn't have a problem adapting the gapps. And lastly the processor, with official documents clocking it at 800Mhz this is not a huge bump. But according to CPUZ the actual clock speed is read at 1 GHz which it certainly feels like it. Overall this is a nice solid phone a true successor to a great phone. November 19, 2013
