Summary: I work in the shop floor and have to get into all sorts of postures- I wanted an android and also Qwerty for Whatsapp or e-mail on the go . Big screen phones would malfunction due to bending in my trouser pocket and it all boils down to a low form factor phone and it has all my must needs- The deal breaker is its price .
Summary: I got this phone for my son as a starter phone. He likes it. It is easy for to operate. He is taking good care of it too. When he gets tired of and wants another phone I can use this phone for my music. LOL... Thanks for the phone.
Summary: Touch screen goes off when you touch the back of the phone. Touch screen feels unresponsive sometimes. Hard to tell if it is on silent or not. Struggles to do simple tasks such as open contacts, browse the webs or use apps. Touch screen keypad is difficult to use. Battery life is pretty good.
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: 24 months or even 18 months is ever such a long time to commit to staying in the UK if you're me, so when I came back from Colombia I decided to go pay-as-you-go rather than contract. I had an old phone so just got a SIM card for it and this was fine for a bit until I realized that I really did want a Smartphone like all the other cool kids.
Pros: Cheap to buy, full range of features, Android, QWERTY keyboard
