Summary: I'm very disappointed in this phone. I had an LG Optimus Extreme. I bought this one because I was having problems with the Extreme. There are some basic and helpful features missing on the Black. I'm happy I only paid $50 for it.
Summary: I had an LG before and loved it but decided to "upgrade" to a Samsung Galaxy and had nothing but problems with it from the start. I was a little leery about going with the LG Optimus Black based on some of the reviews here but when it comes to cell phones I also realize just how picky people can be. Given my prior positive experiences with LG I decided to take the plunge. For $99 all I can say is, Wow......nice phone.
Summary: Both my daughter and I were very unhappy with this phone. Battery life is absolutely awful, usually by the time I am leaving work (an 8 hour shift) the battery is at between 6 and 14 %, even with being careful to make sure everything is off and not running and at a full charge when I leave. The camera has issues with focusing and the flash is about worthless. There are far better phones for less money, so skip over this one.
Summary: I got the phone on time, however I wasn't able to set it up with service. The camera and quality on the phone is great. The battery isn't so good. Other than all that, it's a decent phone. By the way, it is scratch proof unless you put pressure on it.. Overall, 4 stars.
