"Good phone for what it is."

roaddawg31, CNET
24 April 2011
  • Pros: The type of people who would like this phone aren't the kids who text like zombies. Nor is it for people who are consumed by their phones, apps, etc. It's for people who want/wanted a basic phone, that also has a modern look/feel to it.
  • Cons: It's not terribly responsive, and almost assuredly not as user-friendly as other "smart phones". Also, I understand that the back plate wears off and looks bad after a while (I solved this problem by putting a Bodyguardz type skin on it.)

"Amazing phone for music lovers."

OverjoyedAndroid, CNET
15 January 2011
  • Pros: Great battery life, amazing music phone. Pretty good camera for a phone also.
  • Cons: The touch screen freezes quite a bit, and the buttons and themes aren't very nice looking. When putting music on the phone, DON'T use USB Mass Storage like it says. Use Sync. Mass Storage stores the files but makes them unable to be played.

"Cool phone BUT Terrible for texting!"

avasmum89, CNET
23 June 2010
  • Pros: This phone is soo attractive (cosmetically) and has a very long battery life.. Neat looking battery (has a flower design) and nice & lightweight. The radio is a super cool function- no other 3G verizon phones offer that!
  • Cons: Texting is HORRIBLE- -Phone is not as sensitive as it could be. -It often capitalizes in the wrong places -T9 does not recognise contractions such as "don't" and "couldn't" -T9 has NO memory and will not "learn" words EVER

"Nice for non-techys"

macontamty, CNET
8 May 2010
  • Pros: The phone is sleek and easy to handle. Audio is clear. Music player is great; easy to transfer music from the PC. Battery life is decent. No problems texting for me- dual virtual keyboards are nice.
  • Cons: No flash for camera. Videos and pics come out too dark to see if not enough natural light. Browser seems slow compared to other phones Ive seen, but it works for me. Love the navigation feature. Hasn't steered me wrong yet.

"Not a bad phone"

hemp22, CNET
1 February 2010
  • Pros: Nice design, The touch screen takes a little getting used to but now I have mastered it
  • Cons: The Lock out button on the right side will still unlock the phone in your pocket (and make calls) The placement of the side buttons was not well thought out, They should of depressed all the buttons so they cannot be accidentley pushed

"pretty screen, lightweight; from costco.fm radio a plus"

queenelizabeth3, CNET
10 January 2010
  • Pros: My first LG; thin, good sound quality; fm radio was the plus bcaus i dont use an ipod; takes a bit to get used to bcaus my old phone was a flip phone;very pretty screen and graphics, decent speakerphone, not sure about battery life
  • Cons: I agree it takes time to get used to the touch screen, scrolling etc; my main concern is durability and will it withstand getting dropped? will the screen scratch easily? havent judged the battery life yet; it feels fragile and that concerns me
