Excerpt: I got this phone as a christmas gift last year. It's ok but I would probably not buy it again. The touch screen freezes up once in awhile. After I use it and put it in my purse if it touches anything it will dial the number again. Otherwise the phone has a lot of features.
Excerpt: When it was released the LG Dare looked like the ultimate cell phone on paper: Unfortunately the phone's software cripples its well-endowed specifications. Despite its good intentions, the pressure-sensitive touchpad was unreliable and never worked as well as the capacitive systems on other phones. Personally, mine broke more than 4 times over the course of a 2 year ownership.
Excerpt: I have had this cell phone for almost two years now and it is still operating well. However, this phone has some annoying issues that lower its rating to three stars. The phone is constantly calling random people and going into different menus while it is in my pocket, due to the touch screen. In order to unlock the phone, all you have to do is click on this small square in the left hand corner.
Excerpt: The LG Dare is a great looking phone. When I first saw this cell phone, I fell in love with it. The sales person at the Verizon Store had one and said she loved it. The large screen is a plus, especially for those who want to actually see the assigned pictures of the caller. I thought this was going to be the best phone for me. My problem however is the touchscreen. I have what I call "fat fingers." The touchscreen texting features have been a problem.
Excerpt: Overall I have had a bad experience with this phone. Over the year period I have had the LG Dare I have had to have it replaced 3 times due to it running so slow that I could not text or check my email. After questioning what would cause a problem like this Verizon was unable to answer, but replace my phone without a problem since it was still under the manufacturer's warranty.
Excerpt: The LG Dare phone is a nice phone but it is some times hard to use. The touch screen some times freezes. It is verry touchy at times. The music player is great i like it verry much. I have about 25 songs on this phone and i can add more. The camera is nice it takes good pictures. The phone is not big at all and you can buy many colored cover's for it i have the black cover.
Excerpt: im a twenty year old girl so needless to say i text, ALOT. well at least i used to until i got rid of all the fake friends i had. my cousin convinced me to get this phone because she wanted it and she wanted to play with it. its a decent phone and it has some features i like, such as the favorites where you can pick nine people you talk to most and put them on that screen and can text or call them quickly rather than scanning through contacts.
Excerpt: The LG DARE is definitely no iphone. When the LG Dare first was introduced by Verizon, it was being tabbed as Verizon's answer to the iphone. This phone was never on par with the iphone, or any other smartphones for that matter. The only similarities the Dare shares with a real smartphone is the big touchscreen display. Speaking of touchscreen, the LG Dare's touchscreen is atrocious.
Excerpt: I kind of like this phone. It took some getting used too. Texting on a touch phone took some getting used too. Its not like your average qwerty phone that you can just text very quickly and simply. It is very touch sensitive. The lock button sometimes unlocks when push very hard. It is annoying when it does that. The camera is ok. The flash is too bright. I have had this phone for awhile, but i dont know use it as much.
