Summary: I very much enjoy the large touch screen, the full qwerty keys that are larger & easy to use, the one touch buttons that take you straight to your e-mail and social media like Facebook. But the best thing is that it is a flip phone which has modern features since I do NOT like the large FLAT phones which do not feel comfortable talking into or holding up next to your ear.
Summary: I adore this phone. It is compact, space efficient, has a tightly-located QWERTY keypad (a REAL keypad, not a touchscreen), a decent camera and camcorder, good sound...it could not be better for my uses and needs. Every feature has stood up to HARD daily use except the paint on the keys on the keyboard, but since it's a QWERTY arrangement, that doesn't matter much to me (though it amazes people that I've managed to wear the paint off..
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Quality
Summary: Actually, I bought the red LG Lotus Elite and received the red version. :) My former phone was an HTC EVO 3D. All touch this-n-that and I hated it. This LG Lotus Elite fits in my palm and I can see text messages or phone caller IDs as they arrive without opening this flip phone (screen on front, also). Graphics aren't as flashy as the newer smartphones, but I wasn't looking for flash. I was looking for compact and convenience. And I am not disappointed.
Summary: I bought this phone because I had the lotus phone before and now it is no longer working. I love flip phones, and the best thing about this one that the other one did not have. Is the fact the outside screen is touch screen.
