Excerpt: I just got the new LG Optimus S cellphone from Sprint. It comes free with an upgrade to a two year contract with Sprint if you buy it on Sprint’s website or get it from Best Buy. Otherwise, it’s $49.99 at a Sprint store.
Excerpt: This is the Lg Optimus S from Sprint. This is the most affordable android mobile phone on Sprint. It is the most affordable among the three ID phones available at Sprint at this moment. The other two being the Samsung transform and another model from Sanyo called Zio.
Excerpt: I got the phone on Apri 1, 2011 and had it for over a year. At the time it was the only decent phone for Virgin Mobile, it was my first Android. It was a bad Android. The phone worked for the first 2 months, after that it would start miss calls, or text messages every other day. Sometimes taking up to a week to recieve/deliver a text message.
Pros: Build Quality, Low price
Cons: Really bad battery, Bad reception, Terrible video quality, Low storage
Summary: Fast Shipping, Product was as presented except for the fact that when you hit the power button to light up the screen you often have to hit it several times before it comes on. There seems to be some wiring issues. Also the back cover does not completely seal onto the phone, there are gaps.
It works, and it's a phone. What more do you want. Oh, and buy a SIM card.

Summary: I bought it because I needed to use it's bluetooth capabilities to make my Daft Punk helmet that much cooler. It's a little odd to use for the first time, but you get used to it. I prefer using my iPhone as a real phone, and this one as a storage device. Especially since the one I bought has a bad ESN, so I can't use it for calling. It's kinda a paperweight, but it's a useful one.
Summary: It's a good introductory smart phone that has options for simple aps, email, and some internet pages. It does not do well with pages requiring a lot of data and higher speeds. It took me about two days of playing with it to learn the ins and outs, but a basic set up is streamlined by the introductory tutorial. I like the feel in my hand and the size is perfect for purse or pocket.
Summary: I'm not big on technology, so I don't expect much from phones. I chose this one because it was cheap with my 2 year up grade. The LG Optimus S did what it was supposed to for the most part. I got calls and texts. It was easy to text on, however with the first one I had, the 1 key stopped working. Swipe is an entirely useless feature that I don't recommend to anyone.
Pros: -the color, -very durable, -did what phones should do, call and text, -pretty long battery life
Cons: -horrible camera quality, -bad speaker quality, -always running out of memory, -touch screen issues, -slow
Summary: Does what I need. Low phone storage but fixed that with an SD card. Simple and easy to use. The camera could have a higher resolution, but it's a phone annd not a camera so I'm not complaining. I am not a techy guy and have nnever owned a smartphone before but this is very user friendly.
Summary: Good little phone. Cheap. Durable and the battery last longer then most of the phones I've had. Not great for internet purposes since the screen is so small but perfect for any job like construction where you might easily damage your phone. If you break it you don't have to worry plus I think it'd be pretty hard to break.
