Summary: I've had my LG Lotus for about 15 years & it works as well as the day I bought it, it has all the internet capabilities, texting, everything a smart phone has except two things, it's not as fast as a smart phone, & this phone you CAN TURN OFF THE GPS TRACKING DEVICE, on smart phones you cannot do...
Excerpt: This is an update to an earlier review. Sprint upgraded me to a Blackberry Tour (9630) when they couldn't get push e-mail working on the Lotus. Yes, the BBerry OS is clearly superior to that of the Lotus and I now have the push e-mail my job requires.
Pros: Everything about the design., The screen is HUGE compared to the size and weight of the phone., The keyboard is great for people (like me) who have fat fingers.
Cons: No push e-mail., Battery life is not the best, but no worse than my BBerry Tour's
Excerpt: I got this phone less than a year ago, and I absolutely loved it at first. I actually like the size of the keyboard, and there are a lot of really good features to the phone. I also think the camera is pretty amazing for a phone camera.
Excerpt: After owning many phones over the years, I wanted one which had a lot of features but was not “over the top” like many smart-phones out there. Having owned only slim and long phones before, at first I was unsure about the squarish look and feel, but it soon won me over.
Excerpt: I've had this phone for over a year now, and I have to say it's the only cell phone that meets my needs and expectations. The one thing that bothers me the most is how short the battery life is.
Pros: very easy to switch between tasks, lots of great features that work, easy to use
Cons: short battery life, sends text to multiple contacts, hard to read web pages
Excerpt: I loved everything about the design of this phone except for the lack of push e-mail. I downloaded Opera mini 4.2 and it was awesome on the 'net. I had FOUR of these. I could have lived with the software ghosts but getting e-mails HOURS after they were sent was a deal-breaker for me.
Summary: Great phone if you like the look. I have had the phone for about 6 months. It holds together well. I have dropped it 2 or 3 times already without any type protective cover. No problems. I was a bit concerned about the outside view and the glass window . No problems , doesn't scratch easy.
