Summary: I bought this phone and have never been so ashamed of spending money for junk as i did this. i can barely hear it when it rings and i've got it set on 7, highest setting, too complicated, and overall worthless.
Cons: no ability to create custom (text) message tones, slider mechanism, joystick oversensitive, keys way too close, speakerphone sounds terrible and other person has trouble hearing you, bluetooth constantly loses connection, randomly drops calls
Excerpt: This phone has a very nice design. Nice looking and looks very classy especially the silver one. But c'mon? The BATTERY is a JOKE men! I have to charge it everyday while my old Nokia is being punished with MUSIC PLAYBACK in Loudspeaker, VIDEOS, 30minutes of CALLS, UNLIMITED TEXTING, Snapping pics just to fool around but it can stand for 2days. This LG cu720 is a big big big DOWN for LG. And the Loudspeaker of this Phone is also a Big JOKE.
Pros: Good looking design, Nice CAMERA
Cons: POOR SOUND QUALITY, POOR LOUDSPEAKER, POOR KEYPADS!, POOR RECEPTION, NOT USER FRIENDLY, HEAVY AND VERY FRAGILE TO HOLD, UNCOMFORTABLE to PALM, NO 3.5 MM JACK, NO USB CONNECTOR, NO HEADSET WITH PACKAGE, NO SD CARD WITH PACKAGE, NO PROFILES TO SWITCH FROM SILENT TO LOUD, ALL IN ALL IT IS A POOR PHONE WITH RICH LOOKING BODY
Pros: Beautiful screen and color. Very nice aesthetically.
Cons: Software is VERY slow-even when dialing numbers,it's laggy. On my second Shine-camera stopped working out of no where on my 1st one. Every few calls, all I hear is static or a lot of noise. Poor reception and call quality. Only 8 speed dial settings.
"Impractical, breaks easily, full of junk software"

Pros: Has a good aesthetic appearance. The camera was a big selling point for me, and it's pretty good.
Cons: 1 LCD screen breaks easily 2 Clock not visible unless you hit a button - message appears before it finally updates 3 Reception is so-so 4 Joystick and keypad are horrible 5 Annoying AT&T software cannot be deleted - accidental internet connections
Excerpt: This phone was the biggest waste that L.G. could have made!!! the screen flashes on and off. it freezes. the buttons are so small that if find my self canceling messages or calls. i have the worst reception compared to another at&t phone. atleast a few times a day my phone will throw some crazy code as and excuse not to do something. that stupid joy stick thing is annoying!!!
Summary: I love the features of this phone - ID ringtones, great MP3 player and menus. Wonderful camera, with zoom and flash. Plays videos in landscape. But the reception is awful. I've gone into the hidden menus to turn off the 3G (which is supposed to help) but still get "no signal" messages while my husband standing next to me with his Motorola places calls and has great connection.
