"Don't buy this one. I've had two and they both failed."
9 February 2011
Pros: If this phone worked liked it was proposed, it would be a pretty decent phone. It has all the functions that a good phone would have, but is so poorly designed and flawed that I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
Cons: Clam shell top comes loose (this happened twice - with two phones). Typing numbers versus letters is not a natural task. The phone will decide to shut off for no reason -- this happens more and more and there's no fix.
Excerpt: A lot of phones have butt-dialing problems though. My personal opinion on the LG Lotus Elite is that it is not a phone I would recommend. It is cheap and it is a phone and plenty of people would be thankful just for a phone but I would pick one of the new droid phones over it any day. The problems I have with my phone may not be relevant to everyone but this is what can happen to your LG Lotus Elite.
