Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good starter Android My first smart phone upgrade and it was easy to catch on to. Has plenty of features. Some newer apps aren't compatible with this older model phone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good price, but thats it. Not a bad phone in theory - makes calls, texts, has a lot of apps to choose from etc. But the keyboard is incredibly fidgety, and it constantly tells me I have no space, despite having a near empty SD card (and my mother and brother had the same issues with this phone as well), making it basically unusable. All around a very annoying phone to use. But it does do what I truly need it to do, which is make calls and texts, although in a very fidgety manner.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from okay phone but wouldnt recommend it... I got this phone only a few days ago but i already think im going to hate it. It is really hard to text on because if i try to type a word like "for" it comes out as ffoorr. It is also giving me a hard time at managing my apps. i cannot delete any because if i press down it opens them instead of moving them. It may be a cool and attractive looking smartphone but i would not recommend it for people with little tolerance for company errors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This Product is okay. I have had this product for a good 2 years and like many, looking forward to my upgrade. I believe that this is a good starter hone for a child. 2 years ago this phone competed with many but now is left in the dust. I like it before it received its 2.3 gingerbread update. Once it received that is started to lag, but still kept. After so long you can start to feel the age of the phone and realize that new one is needed. You should not keep this phone for more th two years. Its okay has many features but again cant compete. The lack of specs make it not able to play/download certain apps or even watch/purchase movie in the play store. Lots of Pros ad cons.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good at first Bad "Mind of it's own" I have this phone. I had it for a year now, almost two. I'm looking forward to buy a new one. This phone has stopped my calls. Whenever I tried to answer my phone it also locked up on the slider. It also has dropped calls. Viruses in the phone. The sound quality for calls isn't great like it used to be. The phone has no new update. I don't even have a lot of storage used. I recently lost all of my photos/videos. From my second SD Card used. The SD Card comes out on it's own. Sometimes my phone call other contacts while it's off. Don't know whats wrong with the phone. But the good thing is the text. That's about it. That's why I have more texts than calls. But both of their keyboards suck! I used to love this phone for the first three months, but I don't know what happened too it! Very upset user. Once again, I'm looking forward to a new phone. But the price on the phone was great when we got it from the Sprint Store.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It is an okay phone. I like the phone because it can withstand me dropping it all the time. The only bad thing about dropping it is that the battery and sometimes the SD card falls out. I did have an issue trying to get my music and photos onto my computer, since LG supportive tool doesn't provide this model on there when I look it up. But after going to the support tab in the upper right hand corner, then pressing mobile support, and looking for the model number; I found the driver I needed to download and found it fairly easy to download my music and photos onto my laptop. My only huge dislike about the phone is that it doesn't let you delete apps that come with it and that sometimes the phone does things all by itself. But my favorite part is the swipe feature which lets you just move you fingers over the entire keyboard and the swipe program figures out the words you made. Overall, it's a decent smartphone; just nothing to write home about.
