Summary: So I had the Connect a while back. I am now an iPhone user and it has been a couple of years since I have had it, but I wanted to write a review on it, which is something I just didn't get around to doing. Basically, I had Metro PCS for a few years, with them all being crappy phones. I was on Amazon one day and it was on sale for $300 something and decided it was time for me to have a a nice phone.
Summary: Pretty disappointing that it arrived but I could not use it since there was no SIM card and MetroPCS states they are no longer available. The was no mentioned in the description that it did not come without a SIM card. So its pretty useless without a SIM card. Ended up having to purchase a new phone that I really couldn't afford.
Summary: I love the phone but had to purchase the extended battery. I actually brought two, it does everything I need but the battery life is very short. without the extended battery the regular lasts a few hours maybe. its still a great phone.
Summary: ..not so great battery. :P dead after just 2hrs of usage, apps and all. The phone itself, however, is so keen, fast, and loaded with everything u need your phone to perform! Absolutely amazing... Just the battery is my problem!
Excerpt: I've had this phone since 1/15/12 I must say at first I was in love, Screen size 4G speed, 4gigs of internal memory the phone was a dream in the first 2 months, but the shut downs started,the phone would either shut down or reboot @ will, I thought this was a result of me rooting my phone, so I unrooted it and installed the firmware update to no avail.
Pros: Screen size, can be used as a blunt object, HDMI port
Cons: Battery, Slow Booting, Constant Reboot, phone locks up often
Summary: i had an LG connect for a couple of months. it was really buggy. it wouldn't remember the individual and group contact ringtones after i powered off-- it would randomly decide new ringtones. totally annoying and defeats the whole purpose of having different ringtones. when i was using a bluetooth, the google voice dialer only worked through the phone, not through the bluetooth, even though the dialer said that the bluetooth was on.
Summary: I have this phone exactly one week today, after switching from Tmobile-which I've been with for years & my last phone was a HTC MyTouch. The connect is sleek,fast & the screen is amazing.However I do not think that the great qualities out-numbered the bad. The most annoying thing is that the battery finishes like every hour.I am not running any more apps than what I did on my HTC. The bluetooth,wifi & gps satellites are all off to save the battery but it doesn't help.
Excerpt: I loved this phone and it ran great after the root and removal of the bloatware. I never had issues until recently my PRL, phone number and all of my account information started disappearing off of my phone. After help from the Android forums, I fixed it last month. Only to have it happen again. Think long and hard before you buy this phone. It has been a nightmare.
Pros: ok call quality, front facing camera, great 4g speeds
