Piece of Garbage

egarland, Phone Arena
13 December 2012
  • 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. Now I either can't get connected or can't stay connected to the internet. There is no way in H _ L L I'd pay the $300 they say the piece of crap is worth....RIGHT!! I know why it's called stratosphere.
  • 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.

  • Pros: Qwerty keyboard if anything
  • Cons: Screen cracked on two stratospheres in two months even with phone protection & screen guard. Very disappointing. Had no choice but to send in to trade for credit program

Steer clear of the worst phone EVER!

kerriglover, CNET
6 August 2012
  • Summary: HATE.THIS.PHONE.Most apps require "force close" on a regular basis. I had one for 3 months that "burned out", and it was clear when I called Verizon that the tech reps had been dealing with this issue frequently. They sent me another with no questions asked -- and they seemed to have plenty of "refurbished" phones for one that had been introduced less than 6 months earlier.
  • Pros: The screen has a nice appearance, period. Motorola Droids may not be as pretty, but they're far superior in every other way.
  • Cons: The 4G network is rarely available and it often has no signal, drops calls and reduces the signal to 1X. There's no battery life -- literally runs out in 2 hours on a regular basis even without use.
