Summary: over the past 6 years this phone has survived college life and beyond which has included multiple instances of being dropped, kicked, submerged in water, thrown and run over by a vehicle. Besides a few scratches and dents (thanks to the metal construction there is no flimsy plastic to crack)it has never stopped working. I have done a couple battery replacements and when the battery is new it can go 3 days without a charge.
Great for the intermediate user that's not ready for smartphone, EVEN USED!

Summary: I 'rebel the smartphone' and this phone is one of the reasons! It simply makes it unnecessary to upgrade especially being a basic user and occassional advanced. The memory card option (which you have to set up through a data connect source-but is worth it) makes up for the limited space on the device itself. I LOVE the ability to have an animated screensaver! Like the look and durability.
Summary: The battery does not hold a charge for even a day. But other than that the phone works good. The phone was purchased the other phone I had was just like this one and the screen broke while I had it in my pocket. So since the battery is still good I changed the battery so it would stay charged.
Summary: I have been using this phone for 3 years really really good phone, but it is very slippery. So I dropped this phone more than 30 times but still it works in very good condition. As you know the price of this phone, this is not made for people who need smart phones. pros : -Good speakers -easy to setup menus -very reliable cons: - you cant use this phone under the sun -not user friendly while texting If you want to buy a phone just for talk and keep.
Summary: I got this phone as a birthday gift around the time smartphones started to get popular (probably 2008). I played around with it and loved it. This phone has a 2 MP Fixed Focus Camera (no auto or macro focus) with an LED Flash and a QVGA Camcorder that records at 15 FPS, 384 kbps. Audio recorded in videos use AMR. I don't remember what the audio bit rate is. This phone takes a MicroSD card with a maximum capacity of 4GB.
Summary: I used this phone for about 3 years, and it was one of my favorite phone's I have owned. Pros: -Amazing Build quality! Solid metal construction. Spring Loaded sliding action -Decent camera for the time. When I owned this it had a pretty good camera. -Easy to use. Had a lot features that were easy to navigate and use Cons: -The navigation nub was a little difficult to perfect -Glare on the screen. The screen had a metallic coating that produced a glare.
Great buy and product condition was just as it was stated.

Summary: I purchased this phone to replace the same type phone I have had for several years. It is much easier to operate and use than any of the iphones and most other smart phones. It does take a little patience with texting since you have to use the key pad but overall it is not bad. I have several phones for work I carry with me also an one is an Iphone 4 so for personal use I prefer the LG Shine.
