Love the Octane - HATE the Restart Problem

27 August 2011
  • Excerpt: I had the phone for less than two days when I first started having problems. I was texting, and I pushed the FN key and then the M key to get the graphics menu, and the phone power cycled itself. Luckily I was in the Verizon store, and so I showed someone and they checked everything and it was all fine, but whenever I try to use the graphics, the phone power cycles. The phone was promptly exchanged and the replacement phone does the same thing.
  • Pros: Just about everything
  • Cons: Battery power cycling

"Conversation volume too low!"

  • Pros: Nice looking phone, battery seems good so far
  • Cons: I cannot hear people well enough in conversations. They can hear me fine. Volume turned up to max. Ringer too quiet also, volume turned up to max. Why did they make this LG with a 2.5 head set jack when the rest have the standard 3.5???

"Incompatible with MacOS !!"

  • Pros: Nice looking. Sturdy. Could use it to hammer in tent pegs if need be.
  • Cons: Incompatible with MacOS !! Terrible user manual. Written for newbies but no useful info. Can't view photos loaded on to microSD card -- probably due to size limit, but there is no information on this subject in the manual.

"Nice upgrade to ENV2, but new keyboard design sucks."

SuperPhoneUser, CNET
18 February 2011
  • Pros: Lots of neat enhancements, overall very good. No call quality problems so far, or any echo etc. people with those probably got an early batch with bad firmware or something.
  • Cons: I text fast and new keyboard design makes it easy to hit wrong keys. I have to slow down to text without errors. The spacebar is too far from where your thumb is and requires stretching, often causing you to lose finger-position on keyboard.

Good phone that with minor adjustments would be excellent.

  • Excerpt: I have had my LG Octane for almost a year and a half now. I have found the phone to have good battery life. The service area is fairly decent for my area but the phone does not pick up at my home as well as some of the others I have had in the past. The features could stand to be better on this phone. I am not impressed with the camera, the ability to use Facebook without a data plan, and the ability to hear when someone gives me a call.

LG - Octane is a good phone but has many kinks!

  • Excerpt: I purchased the LG Octave because I am a big texter and love to take photos with my camera. The first two weeks I was in love. It took great pictures and videos and had a great zoom. The great other aspect was the drop down keyboard for texting. Very easy to text while using it. Two weeks after that is were the trouble started. The camera stopped zooming and I couldn't take any pictures. I did a search on the computer and discovered that this is a common problem.
