Summary: Bought this phone off Amazon 9 mos. ago. No manual or specs... easy to look up specs and manual on line. Bought it for my 16 yr old. She took to it with a ease. Watches netflix, movies, surfs internet, listens to music, texts and even talks on it once in a while... any good phone will have a card to extend memory. Check Amazon or local electronics store for price (same type used in phones). Another note: this phone takes great pics.
Phones good just have to deal occasional freezes, carry your charger around

Summary: Bought this product after switching from a sprint monthly plan. I recently had a HTC Hero and i liked it for the most part and thought this was as similiar as I could get. At first I really liked the phone but after a month the battery life starting dying quite fast and the phone kept freezing. I loose internet conection quite often and have to restart the phone. There is times when i will be pressing one button but something other than what im pressing will open.
Summary: I bought this used from TopHatPhone. As an Android phone, it works well enough to play modern games like Angry Birds Space without lag. With me web surfing, texting, and playing games, battery life lasts a day or two, which isn't bad. I'm not a fan of on-screen keyboards in general as they are pretty cramped. It doesn't have a ton of internal memory, so I find I keep having to move apps to the SD card or delete apps to install stuff.
Summary: Ok before I write this review I just want everyone to understand Im a stay at home mom and we do not have a home phone. So I just really needed some thing simple to throw in my purse and use in case of emergencies when Im out. At that point I wasnt really big with using my cell phone for anything other than phone calls and I was rarely doing that and AT&T was killing me with they're 2 year contract and overages.
Good phone makes you wonder why you did not get sooner ;-)

Summary: Moving on from the LG rumor touch I have to say my third smart phone (after the droid 1 & motorola triumph)is something I am enjoying very much. I was in the market for a smart phone and being with virgin mobile I tried the motorola triumph which ended up being a big mistake (so i returned that phone). LG Optimus V turned out to be better The Good: Has a nice camera for taking pictures during the day or with lots of light 3.2 mega pix. nothing special but handy.
Summary: I wanted to try a Android phone, but didn't want to spend a lot of money out of the gate. The price I paid was in my range. I wasn't crazy about not having a regular keyboard. But once I got used to the swype key feature. I don't miss the keyboard. The voice to text feature is fine, but you have to speak clearly, and be in a quiet place. This phone surpassed my expectations. Still learning all the features that it has.
Summary: Bought new in August 2011. The phone works out of the box, from Virgin, with Android 2.2. Only 27mb free. Rooted in order to move as much as possible to the microSD, but still I am always hitting the low memory limit. The Optimus Slider has the same specs but runs Android 2.3, and it came out of the box with over 100mb free. Rooting and upgrading from Froyo to Gingerbread may take care of the low memory issue.
Summary: I had to give up my blackberry and wanted another smart phone without a contract. I read the reviews and decided this would be a good choice and I was right! I like the touch screen-it doesn't feel too slippery like some others. The phone is a good size-fits in the palm of your hand and not too bulky or ridiculous if you ever have to put it in your pocket. The battery life is excellent compared to the blackberry.
Summary: I've had this phone since June, 2011. It's worked out very well for me, and is fine for moderate use. There is also a great community of independent developers that have helped keep this phone alive. That's a great thing, as Virgin Mobile hasn't upgraded the OS from Froyo on this phone officially. There are any number of ROMs available for this phone (based on the Froyo, Gingerbread, and ICS OS's), but only if the device is rooted.
Pros: Performance, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
