Worse Phone I've ever owned
I was so excited to use an Android phone for the first time. I had been an IPhone User and was told by my sales rep that IPhones were a thing of the past and Androids were much better. WRONG! From the very first moment I started using this phone it was EXTREMELY slow in bringing up screens (10 seconds or longer), reboots randomly, forceclosures often and not at all easy to use. I am very disappointed. The clarity of the screen is the only positive thing I can say about this phone.

My first smartphone
I was excited to start using this Android phone that I switched from Blackberry. Right from the beginning I had issues where the phone would randomly reboot. I researched the issue and found that the newest system upgrade would remedy the problem. It did. But now I have other issues where the phone locks up a lot where I get the message that an app (ANY app) has stopped responding and I have to force close, especially the Home Screen. What is the point of having apps that I can't use? Now I can't wait for September when I can upgrade away from this phone.

Two Years Later and still thoroughly quality.
This phone was my first venture into Smartphones and all the like. From day one, the phone not only did what a phone is supposed to do, but has aided in keeping me connected to all the things I like to do. Be it keeping up with friends, taking photos, or just surfing the web, the phone has done so with minimal kinks. I do have to restart the phone every once in awhile, but honestly, I consider that one of the pains of any phone. Needless to say, the phone works, no problems, no hassles, and nothing falling apart. Two years later, I find myself for the first time wondering if I need to upgrade my phone. I have been an LG faithful since 2004 and they have not let me down.

Good to Bad
I have had this phone for a little over a year and have gone from loving it to counting down the days until I can replace it.
While it is very user friendly, offers standard features, has a decent camera, and is a good screen size, the issues that have only gotten worse with time do not make it worth it.
Phone shut off randomly, cannot receive text messages over a certain character limit, sometimes won't receive any texts for days (like that happens), battery life is TERRIBLE, hard to connect to even its known wireless networks, lock screen freezes, takes forever to load messages, contacts, dialer, etc., slow to go from screen to screen, when I get an email and delete it, it will pop back up multiple times, the pre-loaded weather app does not update location or time, and phone overheats very easily.
Have to wait until September to upgrade... Can't come soon enough.
