Great Camera but Terrible Usage

Chris J W, Phone Arena
18 April 2011
  • Excerpt: The phone overall is terrible, Lets start with the pros. It has a wonderful camera with a very bright flash. It has good signal strength. I LOVE the keypad on the front and the inside, great for texting. The pictures come out wonderful and pretty big when you bring them to the computer. The batterey lasts very long, I can use it for ABOUT 3 days without charging it. But now, lets move to the cons which overtake the pros by a LONGSHOT. The phone shuts off ALL THE TIME!
  • Pros: Good Camera, Grat keypads on both inside & out, Batterey is decent, Good display, Signal reception is wonderful
  • Cons: Truns off ALL THE TIME. I mean all the time., Pictue/Video messaging is VERY slow, Internet is so slow, If you drop it even on carpet FORGET it. It will fill right up with scratches, Front Screen sractches very easy., The phone is slow overall when you have an SD card in., The music frezzes up all the time when you listen to it.

Worst LG phone I've had

Amber, Phone Arena
12 February 2011
  • Excerpt: LG has always been pretty reliable for me and I've stuck to LG phones for years, BUT.... this one sucks. I'm on my 3RD REPLACEMENT phone! All 3 have the same problem.... they keep shutting off randomly (a battery charge is still present).. The becomes a royal pain in the butt. AND the camera feature freezes A LOT! Overall, I'd pass on this phone and wouldn't recommend it.
  • Pros: large keyboard
  • Cons: shuts off randomly, camera freezes

Average phone

me, Phone Arena
31 January 2011
  • Excerpt: It's okay.. very very basic. Mine has quite a few glitches, such as shutting off randomly, the front keypad constantly locking up, the inside texting is VERY VERY VERY slow, the pictures save to random places and it won't let me edit them and sometimes they're randomly blurry, and sometimes it's really slow. But it also has it's good qualities.. like super fast texting and the battery stays charged. Takes decent but kinda dark pics..

Horrible Phone

trvlnrob, Phone Arena
24 June 2010
  • Excerpt: I've had this phone for a year.  On the surface it seems to be a good phone with a clear screen and great keyboard.  But it's constantly rebooting and shuts down with no indication of it.  I'll have it in my pocket and go to check the time just to find out that it powered down.  Who knows how many phone calls I've missed.  The Camera is OK if you aren't moving and you're taking a picture of something not moving.
  • Pros: Nice Keyboard, Clear Screen
  • Cons: Routinely Shuts down or reboots, Poor Camera

I wouldn't get this phone now.

  • Excerpt: Don't get this phone. I only got it because my other phone sucked and they gave me a choice of this or some other bad phone. Verizon really needs to step it up. If you're getting a new phone now get the Reality or a Blackberry because now you gotta pay for internet for pretty much ALL phones, not just smartphones. Way to go Verizon Wireless! This phone really is not a good phone. The keyboard is so so so so so slow.
  • Pros: QWERTY keyboard, Decent camera
  • Cons: Whenever I put it down it shuts off, Shuts off randomly as well, Keyboard is so slow, Takes pictures when in my hand, I HATE THIS PHONE!!

It's a keeper.

  • Excerpt: This was my first phone. I really like this phone because it has a qwerty keyboard which is fun and easy to text on. It has good camera quality. I like how you can have the option to view your messages in contact (conversation) mode. This is my eleventh month having it. When I have a call or if I call somebody the sound does not work, so I can only talk to people when I have it on speakerphone. I think this is because I have dropped it too much.
  • Pros: average battery life. nice looking. good size. good quality of camera.
  • Cons: freezes occasionally. turns off randomly. drops calls.

Don't buy the LG enV3

GNorth, Phone Arena
15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: This is the worst phone I've ever had. I previously had the original Alias by Samsung, and I loved it. I only decided to switch to this phone because the sales associate who was helping me said it was the closest and most comparable phone that had a front keypad. Therefore, I could text more discreetly when necessary, rather than having to open up the phone. I've had problems with the phone since day 1.
  • Pros: Clear screen, nice QWERTY layout, easy to use.
  • Cons: Shuts off randomly, terrible T9 quality, random white screen, freezes, awkward camera placement.

more problems then its worth

Unhappy ENV3 owner, Phone Arena
30 January 2010
  • Excerpt: I have had this phone since August and if it didnt turn itself off constantly or have a screent that just freezes up and goes white then it might be a good phone. Sure it has a lot of features but they are all pretty useless when the phone cannot remain on or hold a call. It turns off in my pocketbook most of the time and sometimes in the middle of phone calls. It is too unreliable.
  • Pros: nice looking with lots of features
  • Cons: turns off constantly!, freezes up and screen goes white

  • Excerpt: Now, I've had two of these phones both Blue (Not that the color matters) enV3's and with both of them theres been issues. The first one I had I got in August and it worked like a BEAUTY until about mid November and the nthe internal display started messing up and I couldn't see anything when i flipped it up but it still allowed me to text and call people from the outer screen. Eventually I brought it back in, loved the phone and got a second one.
  • Pros: Pictures are nice, Qwerty works good, it seems to be able to take a dropping or two. Battery life is good.
  • Cons: Unreliable, freezes, video is dark and sound sucks.
