Summary: Warning! This phone does not allow tethering. Its easy to use but the battery life is horrible. It looses about 20% battery an hour with minimal use. It does not allow tethering with other devices, even if you have a hot spot plan with your provider. Its also very slow to charge.
Good product. Great features. It's a decent smartphone.

Summary: Battery isn't good, so order an extended or keep chargers on hand. It gets loose in the compartment (happened in two phones so it's an issue to me) and it won't charge. I don't think it's a port issue, just a battery connection problem sometimes. No smartphone has great battery life, so it's something you have to deal with. Screen is very tough. I've dropped it a couple times and no damage (unlike the iphone which shatters easily).
Excerpt: Dear possible LG purchaser: I was a huge fan of LG phones, until the Spectrum, and will be afraid to buy LG again. I cannot use this phone without a bluetooth to make and receive calls, otherwise the other person can't make out what I'm saying. I'm told it sounds muffled/garbled. I paid $199 for this POS and am stuck for another 18 months. I tried to get it replaced by Verizon, but they said no, "there are no known issues with this phone." I say BS!
Pros: Feels great; looks terrific; speech to text is awesome
Cons: Battery---it is completely drained after a normal day of usage. How do I disable the data stuff as indicated by another user? Texting is horrible---I cannot get used to the hard touch screen after having an ENVtouch.
Excerpt: Don't waste your time, move on!! You've been told! This should be a free phone; in fact, I should receive account credit just for trying it. Noting to offer aside from it's display - NOTHING!!! Soon as Fedex delivers the rest of my accessories, this is going back! If this is all LG has to offer dealing with Samsung, Motorola and HTC - Just pack up now and save this money for their TV's!!!!!!!...... Uneducated! Me; I have now or had owned every android Verizon has had.
