Summary: I bought this phone during Thanksgiving break. After I started using it, it is a pretty good android however there are several problems that exist: 1. Too little internal storage space--> Because this phone is running android 1.6, therefore ALL the apps need to be stored in the phone storage. I only have about 15-20 apps, and that's it... I wanted more, but if I want more apps, I need to update to at least android 2.2 in order to put my apps in SD card. 2.
Summary: Ordered this phone with warranty from BLUTEKUSA and they have the worst customer service. Called them up and I was stuck leaving my name and phone number at voicemail. It has already been a week and they haven't responded yet. The phone is great, it already comes with the 2.1 update and it works wonders.
Summary: I really like this phone - it came with Android 2.1 rather than 1.6 and works really well. Unfortunately it can't access the internet via the AT&T network (it works fine through a wifi connection). AT&T say its not a supported phone and they can't set it up. We tried several times with different support people and even spoke to LG. This kinda makes it difficult to use it as a smart phone. Also it will apparently only work at 2G on AT&T.
Summary: I've had one other android based phone, the G1, and these are the major differences: The notification bar is harder to use, probably due to the small er screen size. I have to use my fingernail to select it. On the plus side, the notification bar has button to quickly turn on.off GPS, wi-fi, etc. The MS Exchange setup actually worked quite well. On the G1 it didn't work and I had to use a third-party app. The haptic feedback is both nice and annoying.
Summary: The phone overall was very nice. Didn't weight much and the touch screen was responsive. The Android OS ran well. I liked it overall. It being unlocked and cheap along with the Android OS made it a good buy I thought at the time. The problem I had was that while the features were nice I could not get the phone to update via the official tools. Others had this problem all over the world with this particular phone.
The Optimus is not a bad phone,but it has had some problem's.

Conclusion: The problem's i have had are freezing a bit,not often and also notifying me my SD card has been removed and replaced when it has'nt. The Android market is amazing on it,can find more or less any app you can get on an iphone. I use Launcher EX which is a great app for the phone.
Summary: Its a great phone,but it all comes down to user preference,i've read most of the reviews and i disagree with most of the negative views,i wonder if half of you people even read the manual or understood what you read,i have no problems with it,and i have had many phones,from iphone to blackberry,if y'all want to complain,go build a damn phone for yourselves.
Pros: it's a great phone, lots of apps,good browser,i use it more than my laptop now when i use wifi,it connects quickly,no problem with bluetooth either.
Cons: battery drain at times,but then again it's a phone not. a bloody laptop.
