Summary: The Elite is a great upgrade from the Optimus V. With all that the phone is capable of doing, I am happy with my purchase. The only qualm I have with the product, is that when talking with someone, the receiver states that my audio is somewhat muffled. I discovered that the microphone isn't as sensitive as the OV, therefore, when speaking during a call, I must speak a little louder to be audible to the caller. If this could be fixed, it'd be great.
Summary: Has room enough for lots of apps, Is fast enough to play my videos I have loaded. and the real item that hits home is the NFC and built in Google Wallet. I have lost count of the number of cashiers I have surprised when I don't touch my purse and place my phone on the pay pass reader. One was so amazed as I did it she blurted out, "What did you just do??" as the transaction processed and the register spit out the receipt.
Summary: This a great phone with google wallet. but wish lg would of used a 1.0 ghz processor instead of 800 mhz. and front facing camera. lg could of added these features for another 30.00 - 35.00 to the price of the phone. but it is a good phone otherwise. great battery,good screen and great size. call quality is good too.
Excerpt: I really am impressed here. This is an entry level Android with a single core 800 mhtz processor. It has a decent amount of memory to install applications and such. It can handle a good amount of fun games, and also is capable of handling streaming video through Netflix quite well. I also really enjoy having Google Wallet and NFC capability. I can see this feature going far. As for bloatware. The only real bloat is Mobile ID (Sprint ID).
Summary: The Optimus Elite from Virgin Mobile is great. Virgin Mobile has given subscribers the option to install or delete bloatware with Mobile ID. The Processer is great and fast. Like the voicemail app. While some apps were buggy, the over all app preformace on the phone is good. I really liked the Flash app so I can look at live streaming video and do other things. Didn't Care for the Virgin Mobile Live App.
Excerpt: I bought this phone for my father for Fathers Day on Virgin Mobile, and he absolutely loves it! i have also tested this phone as well and i have to say, it's really good... the phone performs with flying colors and i have not heard any complains from my father, and i have no complains my self! This phone is good for anyone that wants a basic gingerbread phone...
