Summary: as mentioned in other reviews, my messaging app crashes constantly, and won't work properly unless I reboot my phone. The buttons on the bottom of the screen are overly sensitive and go off at random while i'm texting, taking me away from my current message to the home screen or to other random screens and I lose whatever I was writing which is a total pain. I've had this problem fixed several times and sent it in to Koodo - my phone company.
Pros: keyboard for texting
Cons: crashes constantly, overly sensitive screen and touch buttons
Summary: I've had this phone 15 months and I have a reoccurring problem. The messaging app tends to crash (although I did find a solution for that). The biggest problem though is the touch screen. It is too sensitive, and often closes apps or windows without any prompts from me. If I get too close to the screen while typing, same problem. I deal with it, to me it's not a reason to buy a new phone, but be ready for it if you buy one. Besides that though it's great for texting.
Pros: I love the keyboard and it's durable, dropped it many times with only a thin plastic case
Cons: overly-reactive touch screen, a bit slow, camera is poor quality
Summary: It is my first cell phone... and for $100 bucks, it's pretty good... My brother has a LG c800g "Eclipse"... He was $400 and mine does 90% of what his does and at at LEAST 75% of the speed... So... it is a $100 phone that competes with more expensive phones... I would reccomend it for someone who just wants a cheap cellphone to compete with modern ones.
Pros: Competative.. Keyboard is GREAT!
Cons: A bit slow... but nothing someone with a brain can't handle.
Summary: This is simply the worst mobile phone I've ever owned. If you're thinking of getting this product see what Samsung has to offer in the same price range instead. You will regret getting the LG Optimus Chat.
Cons: It's slow to run any app. It crashes or reboots it's self for no apparent reason and the screen lock function is annoying.
Excerpt: "...but I happened across this LG Optimus Chat and was hooked immediately. At just £59.99 on PAYG it's notably cheaper than most, and currently comes rather randomly with a free £15 H&M gift card too, plus a more sensible 2GB SD card. Throw in the cashback credit I already had from my top ups and it was a pretty decent deal. I bought mine from a local O2 store as it was the same price as buying online from them and I didn't have to mess around with ...
Pros: Cheap to buy, full range of features, Android, QWERTY keyboard
Summary: Hallo ihr Lieben ich hatte Euch ja erst von meinem neuen Telefon berichtet und möchte Euch nun mein vorheriges näher bringen: das LG c550 Optimus Chat. +++ Vorgeschichte +++ Ich bin ein richtiger Gossip Girl Fan und war von den Telefonen in der Serie immer so begeister (weil man sie seitlich aufklappen konnte und dann auf einer querz Tastatur schreiben konnte).
Es lo suficientemente buena para considerarla importante

Excerpt: Escondido debajo de la tapa deslizante el LG Optimus Chat C550 tiene un teclado QWERTY completo y se ejecuta con Android, dos características que atraen a la persona más exigente. A mi me encanta el aspecto de este teléfono. Podía haber sido de colores negro y blanco, o negro y azul, pero es de color negro en la parte superior y rosa en la parte inferior donde está el teclado, y se eligió este color porque es muy femenino y es el que le gusta a mi hermana, la...
Pros: Es lo suficientemente buena para considerarla importante
