Great cell phone

Ebay
28 March 2011
  • Summary: I always buy LG cellphones because it has been very reliable than the Motorola cellphones I used to own. I bought this cellphone for my mom who loves LG cellphones because it talks. When you set the voice feature, your contacts are spoken out loud. This is a wonderful feature for people who have a hard time reading small print but caution, it's not for those who want to remain conspicuous. BUT! Not a problem, just shut that voice feature off and you are safe.

Great for a beginner's touch-screen phone

Vlascia, Phone Arena
1 November 2009
  • Excerpt: I got this phone brand new 2 years ago. I've never had any "screen peeling/flaking" as other reviewers have mentioned. I also only have to charge the phone 1-2x per week even though I leave it on 24/7. It is possible to take photos with this phone without turning it horizontally, but I've noticed on occasion that the phone would not rotate the pictures. In fact, sometimes it will spend a minute or more in the "process of rotating" and then spontaneously reboot.
  • Pros: Long battery life, Optional buttons or touchscreen, Great features/apps
  • Cons: Random rebooting, 2.5mm headphone jack, No camera flash

Over a year and still working!

15 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Well...just a short review after having the phone for over a year now. PROs: Great touchpad and touchscree, not really laggy and pretty responsive. The applications work with ease and navigation is simple and doesn't require too much work. The speaker is great and microphone picks my voice up pretty well. Reception is great and I can't complain! (Charlotte region) CONs: Camera is slow when opening up application.

Quit whining its a good phone

Guvner, Phone Arena
4 March 2009
  • Excerpt: I just got a Venus and so far its a great phone. All the good stuff that people are saying about it is true, but for those that whine that the touchscreen is too slow or that you have to touch the screen twice sometimes, or that you can't get through the menu's at warp speed please listen to yourselves.

Not too shabby

fakename, Phone Scoop

  • Excerpt: I've had this phone for about four months, got it in mid-Aug. And honestly it still looks good. I would probably recommend it, but it is a bit fussy sometimes. The main issue is the touch screen. It sometimes just stops responding to your touch for no apparent reason. And when I'm trying to IM and take pictures it'll sometimes just go to a blank white screen and the only solution is to take the battery out.

Of your a heavy texter... Do not buy this phone...

Anonymous, Phone Arena
15 October 2008
  • Excerpt: I like the idea of this phone but I hate the fact that I need to replace the phone every other month because it freezes when I text!  It is ridiculous I am a heavy texter and this starts to become really irritating.  Every verizon phone I have had has fell apart after a few months and I take care of my phones!  Don't waste your time with this phone they have came out with better.
  • Pros: Cool design I like the touch screen, Love the Pink design.
  • Cons: It freezes and takes really slow pictures

Love/Hate Relationship.

Popcorn., Phone Scoop
2 October 2008
  • Excerpt: I have read plenty, if not all the reviews, and I agree with most of them. I've had this phone for about 4 months and it's been pretty good to me. When I 1st got it I thought it was the best phone out, but the touchscreen was a little sloppy. Now that I've had it longer it's grown on me and I'm beginning to love it. It's super easy for me to text, I can do it without looking now. It takes very good pictures IMO.

Pretty Good

Dylan, Phone Arena
12 June 2008
  • Excerpt: This phone is pretty good. That's all i'll give it. I've had it for under a month and it already freezes when i'm texting. And i have to take out the battery to get it to work again.. I'm taking it in tomorrow, but that is some B.S. Keep your products in developement a little more. I'm so sick of verizon phones failling after months. I'm very careful with my phones and i've never had one that didn't start lagging ridiculousy or freeze after months.
