My Optimus V

EpicCalzone, Phone Arena
18 December 2012
  • Excerpt: This phone isn't luxury, it isn't grace. It's like your grandfather's old pickup truck, not the prettiest thing in the world, but it gets the job done. It makes me sad that they trashed this design for something like the Note. EWGOD. It feels like if I drop that thing, it'll shatter.
  • Pros: Durability, Reliability
  • Cons: Slow UI at times, Horrible service with Virgin Mobile

This little engine that could, did and did it very well

30 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Today October 4 marks one year that I had this phone, the optimus v for virgin mobile, and so far I'm very impressed with it. Now.....lets get this straight. I see the other guys ratings and what lack of bells and whistles the phone had, but lets face it, you don't buy a honda and expect it to have...
  • Pros: pretty good performance for the price, build quality, easy to use, 600 mhz processor is surprisingly fast thanks to froyo, it's a formidable beast if you have a very strong wifi signal
  • Cons: weak camera, no flash player, limited music player, low battery life, slow 3G speeds, no wifi hotspot, virgin mobile's live radio has very little to offer and doesn't work half the time.

A great beginner phone!

  • Excerpt: I had the LG Optimus V, from Virgin Mobile USA, and I loved it! It was my first ever Android phone, which is a good thing because this isn't all that high tech. It would have a much better feel to it if it had a glass screen, but it was still very responsive.
  • Pros: Good Battery Life, Android OS, Swype Keyboard, WiFi
  • Cons: Plastic Screen, Plastic Feel, Scratched Easily

Great Cases

Heather, Amazon

  • Summary: I really like these cases, fit perfectly, very comfortable. They are on the harder side of "soft" case, not stiff and hard but more solid than cheap gel cases. Great grip and protection for my phone.

LG has terrible customer service

duckin, Phone Arena
22 February 2011
  • Excerpt: I've had this phone for less than 3 months. It was great the first month, easy to use and good features. After month 1 the phone started "ejecting" the SD card and reloading it. Not physically ejecting, but the phone would vibrate and say "SD card removed" then five minutes later vibrate and say...
  • Cons: Customer service is horrible!

Great phone for a first timer and a non-first timer

16 February 2011
  • Excerpt: This phone is slim and petite. It has a 3.2 MP camera with autofocus and a camcorder. It has SWYPE and the usual Android goodies. Its Android 2.2. It is pretty speedy. The screen is 3.2 in. in length. The battery is probably going to be a concern.
  • Pros: Camera, Internet, Slim, Android 2.2, 3.2 in. Screen, SWYPE, Pretty fast.
  • Cons: Battery life, Charching takes a little bit more longer.

Awesome Value

  • Excerpt: Review for the LG Optimus V. (Just the S on virgin mobile) If you need a prepaid android phone, this is the way to go! It is a quality phone, for a great price and prepaid plans. There are some quirks about it, but not something major to set you back from getting this phone.
  • Pros: Amazing Value, Great screen, Feels great in hand, good quality, Runs android 2.2 and LG has promised gingerbread, Four physical keys at the bottom, Virgin Mobile has great plans! 25 dollars a month, for unlimited text and web + 300 minutes, 3G speeds are quite fast, WiFi Enabled, GPS Included
  • Cons: Battery life., Internal storage -- not enough; some apps still don't support putting them onto the SD card., Laggy at times (like startup), Camera quality, Annoying apps that you can't delete (Virgin loads them on)
