Optimus V

dc_ae7, Phone Arena
10 August 2014
  • 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

Good for an introductory smart phone.

  • 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.

A simple purple smart phone

lexybelle, CNET
5 February 2014
  • 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

Good for a first smart phone

kitkat35blue, Ebay

  • Summary: I bought this as an extra phone in case my kids broke theirs before our contract ran out. You can't have very many contacts or apps. Phone is small, fits in palm of hand. Very good reception. Very long battery life! Works great as a back up phone or for someone young as a first smart phone.

A pretty durable phone with some nice features

keepitsimple72, Ebay

  • Summary: Blue tooth works great but you have to keep setting the discovery setting. The speaker failed on my old one that I used for 1.5 years. I would suggest buying insurance on this one to last out your contract. Phone is easy to use the screen is hard to see in the light. Very durable phone. Wifi makes the data faster. Email and texting The phone doesnt have a zoom on the video. The quality of picture isnt the best but good for close pictures.

LG Optimus - No Flash??

cassidia0382, Ebay
4 April 2012
  • Summary: This phone works great. For the price, this phone can't be beat. Works like any other Android phone. All apps and other programs are working great as well. I only wish the camera had a flash and this would be the perfect phone.

Cute Phone

j02lau08, Ebay
5 February 2012
  • Summary: It's a decent phone, easy to use and cute! The only thing I don't like about this phone is that the mega bite is so small, every time I download an app I always have to make sure that I move it to my SD card or else I would keep getting this pop up bar message "low memory" or "message is expired". Thats mean that someone sent you a msm and you can't get it because you don't have enough memory to restore it. But, Other than that I like this phone.

Slow for being a 3G.

jennicampis, Phone Arena
8 January 2012
  • Excerpt: I have to constantly take my battery out and reset this phone. It started about 3 or 4 months after I bought it. I just never had the money to replace the phone so I deal with the problem for now. It's annoying when trying to use the browser or games that have to go on the 3g network because it constantly freezes. I have the case for my phone because I always drop it, I must say it does take a good beating.
  • Pros: Cheap price, Durable, Call quality
  • Cons: Camera, Slow, Data kills battery

Decent phone for those that want Android Prepaid

etschuetz, Phone Arena
2 January 2012
  • Excerpt: This is a decent low end phone that provides users a decent Android experience. It runs great on the Sprint Network through Virgin Mobile. The price range is great at a mere $99.99. That puts it at a price range that is HARD to beat, especially when tied to the $35 a month plan. The small screen does present a challenge to typing for those with big thumbs. The limited memory for installing apps limits users to picking their TOP favorite apps, and not much else.
  • Pros: Small, Rootable, Decent low end phone
  • Cons: So far no 2.3 support, Small display, 600mhtz processor, limited memory for installing apps
