I've had this phone for over 3 years...
There are several problems that came up through out these years but overall I am really glad that I bought this phone.
The battery lasts about a week. I mostly use it for making phone calls and sending texts. I am not very active but still... 1 week is 1 week.
The camera is decent. At first I thought it was shit but after taking pics with several other phones I came back to my LG and hugged it. Good camera with clear shots. Does good when zooming on a text.
A few months ago I started having problems with the Bluetooth, since I can't receive any files anymore. I can send, however. (remember, it's been 3 years!)
I filled it's internal memory really fast but that is ok since you can buy a memory card :)
A pretty big problem (at least for me in the beginning) were the headphones. Being LG's, in my country at least, they are very hard to find and really expensive. The ones that I got with the phone broke rather quickly...
It's a really resistant phone. I dropped it countless times and even though it has lots of scratches, it worked fine until 5 months ago...
Just like anything, it has to go at some point, and now it's on it's deathbed. The touchscreen, that worked perfectly for more than 2 years is now really difficult to handle.... I am looking for a new phone right now but I thought I could pay my regards to the phone that served me well by posting this review.
If you are looking for a long-lasting phone, with a super battery and decent photos, easy typing and lots of alarms this is the one!
I have this phone for one year. Now I have big problems: bluetooth does not always work. Battery is not weak. Now sometimes it just go off even battery is full. Do not buy.
I've had nothing but problems with this phone. I've had to have the screen replaced 3 times after the touchscreen failed. Then the camera wouldn't work, then the message centre screwed up, now I've just dropped it in a toilet and it won't even turn on. I tried to get all the files out of the memory via USB, only for the inside of the jack to snap. Now I'm stuck with some shitty phone, which just acts as a sealed tomb for all contacts, videos, games and photos. The loss of photos is the worst. They were irreplaceable photos of my dead baby boy.
Its amazing I've had no problams woth it and I've had is for about 2 years now , you should buy this a bargain of £80 pounds I would get it if I was you crappy £200 pund phone , who needs them
had mine for almost two years & never had a problem with it.
Screen works far better than most even my other half has no problem with it which pleases her as she can't use any of the capacitive screens at all.
Over all a good phone, it may not have thousands of "apps" available but it has plenty of tools & if all you want to do is make & receive calls text & a bit of internet who needs rubbish that tells you the ambient temperature of Everest?
I've had mine for less than a year and had it repaired twice and i'm still not satisfied with it.I get so annoyed with it.
Emily, 03 Jan 2011I cant be doing with this phone anymore... the touch screen is inaccurate and often switches l... moreI've had this phone for awhile now, the touch screen calibration has started to play around and i cant do anything :/ its starting to really annoy me, thank god i'm upgrading soon!
This was the first phone I ever had, and for the first year or so I was generally happy despite the slowness, the battery life, the annoying calibration, and the small memory space. Then after 11 months or so?, I started having problems. The phone was continuously becoming slower and slower and it was started to get on my nerves if I had to do something quickly. The internet was absolutely awful. I couldn't go on any other websites aside from Facebook. The phone would freeze and turn off and such, which really annoyed me. Then, my phone fell into a river. I was horrified. It wouldn't turn on, even after I left it on the radiator for a week. For about three months I had to use a brick phone, which really got me appreciating the LG! However one night I decided to try the LG and see if it would turn on. Sure enough, it did! I was sooo relieved. I have to admit, the phone is very resilient! I'm not the most careful of people! I've dropped it, thrown it and sat on it but it has continued working!
Even so, I would NOT recommend buying this phone. It makes you wary and annoyed. I must admit I can't wait to get rid of this phone.
