  • Summary: i have nothing positive to say about this other than the battery life, while not using the thing! if your on it more than a few times a day it only last for the day. if you dont use it much at all.. the battery has lasted me up to 3 days before... but other than that the keyboard is horrible, i cant sms or hardly even call the buttons are small and you have to press to hard. i constantly am fighting the buttons.... I WOULDNT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

Hate the keyboard. Not as great as I initially thought

J. Mathis "Jilly", Amazon
3 October 2011
  • Summary: This phone sucks. I have had it for 4 months now and its not as great as I initially thought. The keys suck and its hard to type. The touchscreen is delayed and its hard to unlock the phone or do anything with the touchscreen. Also keep getting errors saying my SD card was unexpectedly removed then oneday I lost all my pics and vidoes somehow. Issues connecting to internet though none of my settings changed. Just a overall mess. Didnt give it one star cause it ws cheap.

Phone not good for AT&T 3G service

Ierotheos Koufis, Amazon
24 September 2011
  • Summary: This phone does not work with the 3G frequency of AT&T. It is lacking the antenna. AT&T uses 1900mhz for their 3G network (and recently started using 850mhz as well).The 3G spec of this phone is HSDPA 900 / 2100 and HSDPA 850 / 2100. It works on the AT&T 2G network.

Buyers Beware...

Austin, Amazon
8 August 2011
  • Summary: So I just bought this phone a few days because all the reviews make it seem like it's an awesome phone with no strings attached. I am very dissatisfied with the phone now that I own it. The phone works and everything but it is slow as a tortoise. The screen lags every time you do anything on it. When browsing the web, the screen jumps to the top of the page if your scrolling for too long. Yeah the web browsing is alright, but scrolling is just a pain in the neck.

No 3G on US T-Mobile!

Marcos Bastian, Amazon
17 February 2011
  • Summary: This is a good option if you are just trying to get an inexpensive Android phone: It works well and it can be upgraded from Android 1.6 to 2.1. *** However you should be aware that: 1) This is an EUROPEAN MODEL. Until now (three weeks of use) I have not been able to get a 3G signal on T-Mobile. I have tried several APN settings and spent a lot of time talking to T-Mobile's support, but still nothing.I would have given it 3 or 4 stars if it wasn't for this major issue.

Average phone

A, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
2 March 2014
  • Conclusion: I have this phone as a backup, but its performance isn't the best. The android software is really old, the screen isn't touch sensitive, and the battery life lasts for probably half an hour if I didn't lock it once. The camera is actually doable. Some of the pre installed apps don't even work, like YouTube. I also download apps and they keep crashing. The audio when phoning people isn't very clear and sometimes my phone crashes and declines calls automatically.
  • Pros: Easy To Use

User Review

Jamopy, Cnet.co.uk

  • Summary: Despite some of the sad sacks saying if you don't like it you must not have read the manual, i did read the manual and still dislike it. For instance the camera has no flash on it, so taking a picture in anything other than broad daylight becomes a waste of time. But this is a fairly minor complaint. Firstly, unless you have long nails or childlike fingers then sending a text message on this phone is an enraging chore.
  • Pros: Lots of apps
  • Cons: Touch screen is annoying, very slow running

Unremarkable phone

Sonia, Amazon
4 August 2010
  • Summary: I bought this phone from 02 for £120 but after taking it home and using it i found it to be quite cheap in the way it was made, looked and functioned. I expected more for my money and the touch screen wasn't as responsive as i would have liked. I'm well used to using mobile phones, but i found this phone to be quite awkward. The wifi constantly kept trying to connect to the internet even when it appeared to be switched off, which resulted in my credit being 'eaten'.
