Summary: nothing is seems like original. it seems only the outer covering is LG make rest is something else. first of all the battery cover doesnt fit it fells. the software always hangs whenever you take photo it hangs than nothing works, everytime you have to remove the battery to start it again. it cant copy the data from handset to external memory it gives unknown error. all function are slow..
Excerpt: biside camera nothing is impressive. It is very slow. Shutter speed is not fast which results hazy pictures. there is no option for loudspeaker while playing FM radio. No conversation recording, this is demotion than KG300. No games.
Excerpt: Awful phone, I had one of these for 2 weeks, before I had to send it back. Due to issues with speed when texting. Very slow touch screen compared to my old PDA phone. Poor battery life and poor sound quality when making calls. Also a truly awful PC sync software package, meant mutiple reinstalls for it to even see the phone. Avoid if you want any sort of functionality, its just a fashion accessory.
Summary: I really wanted to like this phone, but although it had good features, the battery life was appalling!! I paid a lot of money for nothing here.... I would turn the phone off at night, and then turn it on at 7am - barely use it in the day time and the battery would be dead by 5pm... honestly - I hope that they sort the problem out as I did like the look of it...
Summary: I was given this phone by a friend and the battery life is shocking I get maximum 8 hours out of it even when it's not used and in my opinion it's not fit for purpose. I telephoned LG support who said as the phone is more than 12 months old it won't be under warranty and would need a repair that would cost more than than the phone was worth. Sorry LG its going in the bin and I will think very carefully before buying one of your products in the future.
Summary: This is a very poor phone. My only positive thing to say is that it has very good predictive text and the buttons for the letters fill the lower half of the screen so texting is very quick. However, the phone memory can only hold about 250 texts at a time, which is nothing if you regularly text. When this capacity is reached, they must be deleted, a process which takes several minutes. Movement between menus is also quite sluggish and the touchscreen is not very good.
Cons: Intenet browsing, Inbox, Touchscreen, Very slow.
Summary: I've had this phone for nearly a year and it has a particularly irritating fault that has occured around 8 times so far. For no apparent reason the alarm will not sound but if you are fortunate enough to be awake you will see the alarm display going on. It has not been put on silent, the battery is full etc - don't rely on this phone to get you up in the morning! I quite like this phone but the touchscreen isn't easy to use - particularly with texting.
Avoid like the plague if you like actually using you phone

Summary: I bought this phone as it was time I had something with 3G features and a decent camera for those impulse shots when my proper camera is at home. Buying this was a big mistake - the quality is exceptionally poor, so poor that they compare to older camera phones from several years ago at much lower resolutions. The images are as far from sharp as could possibly be, and with an excruciatingly terrible trigger-to-snap latency problem.
Summary: Slooooow. Takes nearly a minute to get in and out of camera - if you press shutter and its accidentally in video it takes same amount of time to switch back to camera. Think youve got all your camera and video settings to perfection? Think again - it changes to 3gp low quaility when it feels like and also switches from memory card to phone memory on a whim - by the time you deal with full memory message and fiddle about with the slow settings the moment has long passed.
Summary: Really nice features. But... Touch screen: to select is abreeze, but scrolling? Forget it. It just doesn't work Battery: Forget the claims. The battery life is terrible. Unused, it lasts about 6 days. In use, a few hours. In France recently. The phone was charged all night, off charge 6am. By 2pm battery was dead. I only found out while waiting for an important call!! Get another phone.
