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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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 is Fine if You Get a Good Price

  • Excerpt: I have mixed feelings about this phone. My husband picked it out during Black Friday shopping, and I wasn't there. The Android software is decent, although I have run into a few kinks. I do like how it operates in general with the internet, like being able to easily zoom in, and having the screen "flip" based on the orientation of the phone. Unlike past phones I've had, the speaker is loud enough, which I like.

The LG Optimus S is nothing spectacular.

  • Excerpt: Okay, so I bought the LG Optimus S. I wasn't quite sure about using a phone that is completely touch screen (I have shakey hands), and Iloved having a keyboard on my previous droid. But, the total touchscreen capability proves to be one of the best attributes of the LG Optimus S. The letters on the touchscreen keyboard are slightly larger than other phones, making them easier to hit with even not so little fingers. And turning it to the side makes it even bigger.

Solid smart phone

  • Excerpt: I finally decided to join the new decade a year late and upgrade to a smart phone. I wasn't looking to spend a lot of money, so I opted for the LG Optimus S from Sprint. It's a good phone for the money, particularly when coupled with a $69.99 plan that includes unlimited data and texting, as well as unlimited calls to cell phones (450 minutes to other phones per month). This phone does a lot..

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.
