Summary: This is a good, durable phone. Not fancy like the new Samsung phones. But fancy enough. Has enough power to play games., surf, download, email, text, takes great pictures. The video is amazing.
Excerpt: I have had the phone over 2 years and it is a great phone very durable and easy to use. I love the talk to text feature and how accurate it is compared to others. I use it mostly for talk & text and it is beyond reproach. When using the internet it connects fast and has always stayed connected.
Excerpt: I got this phone in March of this year and I love it. I've had some problems with it though, and I'm on my third replacement. What I love is the smooth operating system, the fact that EVERYTHING is customizable and the full keyboard. What I dislike is that the phone likes to get very hot, very fast.
Pros: great camera, good call quality, full keyboard, easy to use, customizable
Cons: medium length battery life, laser light show, randomly shuts off
Excerpt: To put it in plain language...I WANT MY LG ALLEY BACK. This piece of garbage can't stay connected to the internet for more than 2 minutes. This is the second stratosphere I've had in less than 2wks. The original phone crapped out within 2 days...had to replace it.
Pros: one heck of a camera
Cons: everything it's supposed to do...it can't, it's soooo sllow when working on the internet or trying to log on,or stay logged on.
Excerpt: As my first smartphone it has far exceeded my expectations with one exception, the WiFi range is awful. When connecting to my home router (Linksys WRT54G) I get 1 of 3 WiFi bars at ~20-50 FT away, beyond that no connection and only able to get all 3 bars at ~2 FT from the router.
Pros: Seemingly indestructable for a smartphone, 4.0, TouchWiz UI, Excellent Battery Life, QWERTY keyboard, 4G LTE
Excerpt: The lies i was told about how "great" this phone was quite believable but take it from me do not purchase. Within the first couple months i had a replacement sent out, and still having problems.
Pros: The screen is beautiful, When it actually works like its supposed to great phone, It was the only thing a 15 year old could afford so thats why it was bought
Cons: Have to restart it several times a day, It will overheat when your not touching it, The fact it dies on the charger is terribleeeeeeeee, WiFi isnt that great for some reason, Apps consistantly run no matter how you try and close them, Restarts itself at the worst times, Freezes a lot
Excerpt: Well I've had this phone for 3 months now and I have to say it just about fulfilled my expectations. The 1GHz processor in this device allows the phone to run pretty smoothly. Reading the other reviews I think some of the bad comments are extreme cases because in my 3 months with this phone I have...
Excerpt: Built well... It seems a bit big, but is really not a problem, and very durable, especially considering the slide-out keyboard (this usually makes phones flimsy, but here, it didn't). 4G LTE is cool stuff. Blazing fast wherever you have it, but also blazingly battery-hungry when you use it.
Pros: Fast & Powerful, Nice Screen Size/Quality, Well Built, QWERTY slide-out keyboard
DONT BUY THIS PHONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Excerpt: My husband and I bought this phone at a local Verizon store as a Christmas gift for our daughter; this is her first smartphone. I played with it a little and liked the way it felt in my hands - not too heavy and sturdy enough. I loved the beautiful AMOLED pictures - so crisp and clean.
Pros: beautiful AMOLED display w/gorilla glass, good battery life, phone seems sturdy, playback thru headphones while listening to downloaded books was clear
Cons: screen freezes quite a bit; had to restart the phone after only having the phone for a couple of days, aggravated at having to add words to dictionary for texting, reception/service was spotty even in wifi zones, need to insert firmly the headphone jack into the phone or else there was no sound c...
