Summary: I replaced my previous LG C900 that I cracked the screen on. I love this phone. It is one of the few still out there with a slide out keyboard which I love. The only down side is the battery life and that depends on how much you use the phone for data. It will last all day but if you are like me you will need to plug in by 8pm.
Perfect value for the price!! Wife is happy with it, so I am happy.

Summary: I purchased this phone to replace a very outdated android one my wife had. She still wanted the sliding keyboard.. that was the biggest thing she was after. So after checking out the comparable models by both price and operating systems, I chose this phone. First, the windows operating system is exactly what I have on my Lumia. So apps we get can get shared by both phones. Also, as it had the slide keyboard, it was perfect for my wife and her needs.
Summary: The APN Settings cannot be modified. Cannot send media messages(Send Images or files by message).The only way to attached files is by email. Market doesn't have a lot of applications. No Apps for Pandora or AAA or other I use constantly. No support from LG for the americas on this phone. App for network settings only works in Asia and Europe.
Summary: Was looking for an inexpensive smartphone to pair with my no-contract plan, and found it with the LG Quantum. For the money, it simply can't be beat. Windows may not have as many apps as Android or iOS, but there are enough. Given that my work, like most others, uses Microsoft Outlook and Office, the built-in apps were fantastic. Ended up not using the sliding keyboard, as the touchscreen keys are fantastic. Still, they are there when you need them.
Summary: Not at all a bad phone. Upgraded to Mango without a hitch. Battery life is mediocre (barely makes it through the day). However there are two things about this phone that buyers should consider: it's not a Lumia, and Windows phone 8 is just around the corner. Lumias tend to receive far better support than other windows phone brands (updates, exclusives), and Microsoft has confirmed that windows phone 8 will not be ported to wp7 devices.
Overall great phone. Great value. Love Windows Phone 7.

Summary: Have been using this phone for a week. It is my first experience with Windows Phone 7 and I am really impressed. It has been really easy to use and customize, and automatically updated to version 7.5 (Mango). Phone itself is very easy to use, and I really like having a hard keyboard to use. Keyboard is relatively large and great for my big hands. Very responsive and quick response time. Synchronization to PC via MS Zune was also easy and seamless.
Summary: Although customization is limited and not as many apps as iPhone/Androids, I LOVE my Quantum!! I particularly like being able to choose between touch screen and keyboard texting; Not having a keyboard on other/similar phones makes texting experience longer and makes messing up easier. Camera and graphics are clear, no complaints. Heavy, sturdy build; when I've dropped it, it hasnt blown to bits or fallen apart.
Well built, responsive, easy to use but heavy windows phone

Summary: A well constructed phone, feels solid but is a bit heavy - nothing you cant get used to. The touch screen is extremely responsive, having upgraded to Windows Phone 7.5 (mango) this is a real nice phone. I took away a star for the dull photo's that the phones camera produces, though with some tinkering one might get the phone to take more colorful photo's.
Summary: Pros- Excellent battery life. I get two days out of it and for a smartphone that is amazing. Good system specs for the phone (Windows games and apps run very smoothly) Live tiles are useful, look nice, and will continue to get better with the new update. Sync options for facebook, windows (hotmail, etc). google (gmail, etc), and standard pop/imap setups. Phone is very responsive (On par with iPhone, much better than Android.
