Summary: I wish I hadn't purchased this phone under contract because I'm stuck with it for another few months. This phone would be perfect for someone like my m-i-l who doesn't use 3/4 of what is on her android phone pre-installed and never uses the market or app store at all.
Summary: I originally went with the Ally because it didn't want something to launch NASA rockets but didn't want a horribly slow smartphone either. Well, this is certainly mediocre. It started off well enough but as the months went by, it just seems like it get more finicky.
Summary: I received this phone free through a promotion with Verizon. Have had it a year and the battery after about 3 months started crapping out. 1 year into use the battery needs to be replaced. Love the android platform and the pull out button keyboard, otherwise, eh.
Excerpt: It was a great phone. I loved how fast it was until what i call doomsday. The day the 2.2 update came out. After that day the phone went downhill...FAST. It froze at least once a day and the slider would not work so I had o use the small onscreen keyboard.
Excerpt: This phone is very average. For its overall size its really heavy and feels like a brick in my pocket. I've dropped it a couple times and its held up ok. I've gone through like 3 of them due to problems with text messages, and the vibrate function going out.
Summary: After about 6 months, my phone began freezing up, especially when the battery was low. I couldn't turn it off, couldn't reset it, until-- for whatever reason-- it decided to unfreeze itself (usually after several hours). Finally it just froze up permanently.
Excerpt: I'm going to cut to the chase. This phone sucks. I know apparently it runs the newest version of android, and it has a keyboard, and was advertised in Iron Man 2, but seriously, this phone sucks. The keyboard is the klunkiest thing ever. It was very hard to use. The camera is basically useless.
Pros: It runs android? Kind of.
Cons: If hell was a phone, it would be the LG Ally.
