Summary: It was initial price. Then, I found this phone to be old technology. That would explain why it came down from $330 to $100, the only thing was it was further reduced in price to $65. The seller and I reached an agrement. Still though it has a front facing camera and a rear, which makes Skype possible. I added a 32mg card for storage and of course alot of applicatipions and works great!
Summary: In this purchase you make at Amazon by such seller, I give three stars is not unlike anything negative is that it was my mistake for not telling the seller via email before. what happened to me was that the system was only as the English language, Chinese, French none of this is the official language of my country, I live in Venezuela, so good delivery time, zero detail and color requested. I did was install an application language for the operating system ..
Summary: Very lightwieght phone!! impressed by its lightness, although doesn't feel that sturdy. Battery life seems to be rather low. Unfortunately, this phone was refurbished and came with a generic IMEI that my service carrier blocked, got that issue fixed and the phone works fine. Awesome Screen and overall feel. There are cheaper phones out there that have better capabilities than this.
Summary: The phone is great quality for the price. The screen is nice. It's a nice phone in general. I've had it for about 30 minutes and everything was really easy to set up and learn. My problem occurred when I realized that this phone is WI-FI ONLY! If you have an internet date plan with your provider it does not work on this phone. I can only get internet where wi-fi is avaliable.
Like the screen, good quality for movies. Bad that OS 2.2 is desirable OS 4

Summary: Received the phone and immediately detect defects: 1. charging the phone's battery can not be used, the phone does not work. It was found that the defect in the charger. Replaced by another and everything was normal. 2. Radio does not work. 3.
Summary: The touchpad is a bit annoying. As I place the phone to my face while speaking, it drops my calls since my cheeks press against the hang up button. So now I have to use the speaker while talking but sometimes you want to keep the conversation private. Besides that, I like little things like the strength of the speakers and the size of the phone memory.
Excerpt: My girlfrined just posted her review and told me I should review my phone as well to "warn people" away. We both bought this model phone about 6 months ago and she has had lots of issues with her devices, but I have not had as much trouble. I will say that the batter dies abnormally fast even for a smartphone- my buddies EVO 4G lasts longer with stock battery than my phone does and most know that 4G phones run through the battery.
Pros: beautiful display
Cons: not the equal of other 3G 1GHZ smartphones out there
Summary: I'm on my second month with this phone on Virgin Mobile, having switched over from a MyTouch Slide on TMobile. I chose this phone because the reviews were good, but mostly because of the slide-out keyboard. Touch screen is fine, but I really prefer the slide-out querty keyboard for typing more than a short text message. The keyboard is okay. It's not as big as the one on my MyTouch was, and I bump my fingers all the time when I'm using the top row.
Great Starter Android Phone but VM Reception Needs Improvement

Summary: I have owned the LG Optimus Slider (VM701) phone nearly a month. My spouse and I were able to take advantage of a Radio Shack special for Christmas 2011 that made this a far better buy. I can't complain about Virgin Mobile's service. We had to call customer service a couple times during and after activation and the reps were always friendly and we were not disconnected. That being said, I would advise that you activate your phone online.
