"This phone is sooo... slow it stincks."
1 July 2013
Pros: Nice design, good weight, feels good in hand. Good battery life.
Cons: The phone is extremely slow in changing app to app. Locks up all the time. Wifi is as slow as the G3 Network Touch screen is not sensitive enough. Have to repeatedly swipe finger on to screen to get it to respond.
Excerpt: I purchased the LG Ally phone when it first became available. I had read several reviews about it online and they were all very mixed. The LG ally definetly has several pros and cons. I feel like the cons outweight the pros though. I have had the phone for three months and have already had to have two replacements. The LG ally that I had kept turning off at very random times. I would try yo answer a call and it would shut off. The second LG Ally I had had volume...
Summary: This phone has very small memory and the battery dies extremely fast. The only good feature about this phone is the keyboard. If an iPhone had this keyboard, it would be the perfect phone. Touch screen is not very sensitive. Im sure the phone was perfect about 5 years ago but now it is a little bulky and outdated.
"Good starter Android phone but you will outgrow it fast"

Pros: Pull out keyboard works great.
Cons: Only half of the apps can be stored to the SD card. Verizon adds lots of apps that you will never use and you cannot delete. As a result the phone's storage fills up quick. Resets almost every day by itself. Freezes often.
Summary: I find the menu paths difficult to follow. This is my first smart phone though. It seems that all the decent apps. are rented to you on a month basis fee. I just feel like it is to difficult to use so far. It will get easier with time I'm sure. I also feel like a person needs skinny fingers for the touch screen. I really need to focus on where I touch the screen to get the desired results.
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. I could easily go from 8 to 8 and have about 50 percent battery left. After 2.2 i could go the same amoun and only have about 10 percen left. Battery sucked. Right now i would not recomened it to people.
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. The worst thing about it is the internal storage. I have all my apps saved to my SD card, run a task manager, and clear my cashes often, and it still complains about having low memory thanks to all the bloat wear.
Pros: The keeyboard is nice. It is eay to type on.
Cons: The audio is terrable. This phone keeps going out. I'v only had the phone for one year and had to send back three times, because of the audio. When someone calls me the phone will ring but I cannot hear the person talking. The same when I try to call some
Cons: Have to choose a minimal amount of apps to install. Low disk warning after only 5 apps installed. This even after a full reset and restore. Randomly shuts down, and will not turn on unless battery is reinserted. Very slow to do normal things like make
