What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Good When I first got this phone 2 years ago, I was in love with it! However after 2 months I noticed it was getting slower and slower, to the point it would take literally a whole minute just to display 2 apps. Don't get me wrong, the display is amazing. and the whole main feature of the phone the Quick-memo button isn't really useful. The first time I dropped 2 years after getting it. The touchscreen stopped working. Which I'm thrilled about, Because now I have an excuse to get a new phone. And it certainly won't be this one. :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's been a nice phone! I'll have had this phone almost 2 years now. It's certainly not perfect, but it gets the job done. I got it because of the large screen and I love it, don't think I could go back to a smaller screened phone. Takes some getting used to talking on it. It does freeze up sometimes and I usually don't get texts that are sent in a group message, which is annoying. I charge my phone at night while I'm sleeping and usually about 1 or 2pm I have to put it back on the charger. Alarm clock doesn't always go off if there's a bunch of notifications also, so make sure to have a back-up alarm clock. Camera takes pretty nice pictures. The large screen makes emails, Facebook, texting, etc so much more enjoyable. It also gets a lot of people to talk to me about it, they want to know what it is since it's not a very popular phone but it's big! Has a lot of memory so you can take lots of pictures and have a bunch of apps and it doesn't seem to effect anything. I've dropped it many times over these last 2 years and there's no cracks, scratches or any problems with it from a drop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For a phone to have No one like it. Its Great. Everyone is scared to drop a phone. I threw this one as hard as I could Crushing the Battery inside like and accordion, (Screen still Works) No glass to break makes it awesome. Ive had to bend mine back out for one reason or the other. Many time This phone should have been dead. I have had mine since 2012 having 1 replacement because of Water damage. Downside is all the Bloatware INSTALLED! just cleaned mine and fastest phone Ive ever owned..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from the lg-vs950 phone is the worse design ever to replace the battery you must buy special tools. you must take a lot of time to unscrew 2 of the tiniest screws on earth. after that you must pry off the back of the cover plate. you have to have a special tool for this too. none of these tools come with the phonel. taking the back off is not easy nor is it quickl. its a miracle if you don't loose or break the two screws. the special battery replacement tool kit I bought did not have the correct tool to unscrew the inside screw used to hold down the wire attaching the battery to the phone. I had to go buy another drive. I will never buy anything else from LG because this terrible design. you cant switch out batteries quickly when runs out of juice like all the other phones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Pho-blet Yeah, got lot of comments about its size initially, but now other phones are large too, so it's not as noticeable. The first one died quickly, within 2 weeks, but its replacement has lasted 2 years. I LOVE this phone. The browser was slow, but replacing it with Chrome solved that problem. There are power management issues, but I love the phone so much I have developed ways to compensate: keep it charging in the car, charge it every night while I sleep, turn-off bluetooth when not in-use, etc. LOVE the large screen. LOVE the many features. I have installed several apps and use it for everything: calendar, shopping lists, membership cards, navigation, EVERYTHING. Even bought a wallet-case for it that holds credit cards too, it's the only thing I usually carry.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good While It Lasts I have had this phone for about a year, and I want to throw it out the window. I bought this phone because I am a gamer, and I wanted to play games on my phone as well, but the lag just kills it. It takes an ENTIRE MINUTE to load up 2 icons. No, just no.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome phone!!!! I have absolutely loved this phone and am saddened that it will no longer be available. The picture/video quality is the best I've seen. I feel I will be down grading picking anything else :( I will still be moving to an LG phone when my contract renews none the less because I know I can depend on and trust the quality of LG.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Half way through my contract and I cant stand it. I've only had this phone for a year, meaning I still have another full year with it, and I absolutely hate it. It runs slow and lags constantly. The battery only lasts a few hours tops even with a full nights charge. Not to mention half the time my text messages just don't send and half the time it won't even notify me that I have a text message when I do. I am seriously considering buying a full price phone so I don't have to deal with this for another full year.
