Excerpt: The first thing that comes to mind when I think about my LG Shine is that its like a portable mirror for anyone to use but its a bit too small to see through. The conveniences of this phones features are great but it lacks what a Droid can do and my current phone I want to obtain. This phone's features are really simplistic from the phone book to the Java games it supports, This phone however cant be modded.
Excerpt: This phone was great in the beginning. I really enjoy the sleek design. It wasn't overly complicated and it had a lot of useful tools and features that I use daily. The problem I started having with the phone though is that it shut off on its on repeatedly, which is very frustrating. I'd send someone a text message and would be awaiting their reply....and waiting...and waiting...and waiting.
Decent little phone with neat options but horrible battery

Excerpt: When my wife first got this phone she absolutely loved it. She was impressed by the features and how heavy and durable the phone felt. She loved the shiny mirror on the front that instantly turned into an LCD screen. To her suprise however within 12 hours this phone needed to be recharged. She was somewhat disturbed that she couldnt go a full 24 hours without recharging it.

Pros: The shine is not only attractive but is also sturdy without being excessively heavy. It's simple to use and has a large, good quality screen. It has a powerful vibrate setting and reasonable ring volume.
Cons: Reception tends to drop, even go out, despite being in strong service areas. Calls are quiet and outgoing quality of the speaker setting is extremely low. Texting can be a chore on the small keypad and the joystick frequently over/undershoots.
Excerpt: Mkay, I've had this phone for a little over a year and I'm starting to hate this phone.. The screen is cool at first, but scratches really easy and it looks crappy now.. Second, the battery life is horrible. Yeah, I probably do close to 1,000 texts a day but around 600 messages it will be at low battery. I charge it everynight and sometimes a second time in the middle of the day. Its horrible.
Pros: Overall, the phone has a nice feature set; it's also quite durable...mine has survived several drops that should have killed it.
Cons: The mirror on the front makes it nearly impossible to see the screen in sunlight (or even in a bright room). The joystick is also difficult to navigate with. The reception and voice quality also leave much to be desired.
Pros: It looks like a very nice phone, until you get to know it. Picture edting is good,
Cons: Not great for big texters but gets the job done. You can"t have a ringtone set as your message tone. Joystick starts delaying after time. Not too long before you have to delete your inbox. The button size does not seem like a big deal but it is
