  • Excerpt: I decided to give this phone the benefit of the doubt and keep it for at least 6 months now I just want rid of it. I swithched from the Optimus V on Virgin Mobile to this phone and I cant believe that an older phone with less technology was actually better. The battery only lasts half a day, I cant complete a full phone call without calling the person back at least twice because of dropped calls, the phone is actually slugglish at times, I had to move a bunch of apps to...

"Poor hardware, poor software"

HarleyG, CNET
26 June 2013
  • Summary: This phone is riddled with faults, I've had to send it away twice for repairs. As a previous user mentioned, there are crashes with dialing and texting applications. These require a hard restart. I've found known bugs where the text message option just closes itself instantly, it takes 45 seconds to dial a number (if at all) and I would consider these to be frequent errors.
  • Pros: If it worked, there are some great ideas
  • Cons: It doesn't work

"Would not recommend"

Notahappycustomer, CNET

  • Summary: I have had nothing but problems with this handset. Has been replaced once and returned to Telstra twice for issues. When dialing out it will take about 45secs to dial the number. When using the text function it will not allow you to text (not always but frequently). Rating 2/10. Not happy!!
  • Pros: Screen size
  • Cons: See above

Will not recommend LG P 970

Reon Antony, flipkart.com
28 September 2011
  • Summary: Been using this phone for just over an year and i wont recommend this phone to anyone. Power button was not working at times right from the start and the service people said its an OS problem and will be fixed on upgrade to GB. Since i had to backup all my data i didnt do it then. Phone gets sluggish and hangs once in a while. Sometime if i lose 3g connectivity i need to restart the phone to connect to 3g again(it might be a problem with Froyo).
