Excerpt: I was reluctant to switch from QWERTY-comfy Blackberry to a touch screen. I chose this phone because it was cheaper so if I hated the touch screen, I could switch back without wasting tons of money. I love this phone!! It's fun, convenient, and the touch screen isn't so bad! I'm sorry blackberry.... The only problem I've had is my camera settings...either it's not the best camera, or I don't know what settings to change to make the quality a bit better.
Excerpt: I am one of the first buyers of LG Optimus GT 540. Being a smart phone freak, I was planning to get this phone after reading some of its reviews on internet. And, as expected I got it at the earliest. The phone has not disappointed me. It has some very nice features which make me love it. It costs me only 220 dollars which is low if I am asked to do a cost-benefit analysis. The phone runs of Android OS v1.6. However, it can be upgraded to Android OS v2.1.
Summary: I've had the phone for about 3 years now. It has been fantastic, Full of useful features, I am still amazed at its looks and performance. Just lost the charging plug socket cover, but after that length of time its entitled too. I have looked after it, always had a case and a screen cover as well.
Summary: Everything was great about this phone; the music area was perfect, loved downloading apps from the store, could organise things in the calender and memos easily. This phone is great for anyone new to android or touchscreen. However there were a few problems. Firstly the Internet was really slow, the camera lacked quality and before my two year contract ended the touchscreen and buttons stopped working even though I've never actually dropped the phone.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, Easy To Use, Features/Settings, android, music, organiser
Summary: the LG GT540 aims to give first time smartphone users the right balance of features in a friendly package. Well-rounded connectivity and good design, with just the right touch of extravagance, will certainly open doors. The LG GT540 is a reasonably sized handset, standing at 109 x 54.5 x 12.7 mm. It’s no big deal to comfortably find room for it in most pockets. It’s hardly too heavy.
Excerpt: Ok, so clearly not the best phone on the market but that's not what you're buying here. I've had this phone 2 years and it hasn't shown any sign of depreciating in value (if anything it's gone up in value thanks to my amazing games and music ;)). Let's start with the good points here, the obvious one is that it's cheap, cheaper than most comparable phones on the market, that's the reason I bought it!
Summary: A very well priced phone, it looks good, and despite dropping it down stairs and onto concrete, it works very well! The one thing negative i do think, is that there needs to be another update, as on the 2.1 version of android, you can't download apps to the SD card. This means you easily run out of room, and you have to delete wanted apps if you want to update others. If it was on version 2.3 of android, I wouldn't be able to find a fault with it!
Summary: I had got this phone just over a year now and have found it fantastic, the functions are great and its excatly what I was after. I had noticed that the touch screen can bit a bit had to work at first but a bit of practice and you will be used to the funaciality of this. I have recently done a upgrade to the new OS, whic allows for even further functions like live wallpaper! FANTASCIC.
Pros: Useful Features, small and compact
Cons: slow touch screen, needs update for live wallpaper, poor battery life
Brilliant phone , main problem was one day battery life.

Summary: Although i have given it 4 stars and do love the phone ,unless you are prepared to charge your phone every night and can live whithout a phone when you need it most then this phone is terrible.The battery life lasts a day max if you use it and can last 4 days if you just leave it there. Android is brilliant , better than the App Store.Android has loads of awsome free apps but paid ap are a hassle to get.
Pros: Camera, Easy To Use, Useful Features, High Quality Display, Design, gps, android
