I love the phone but at times it can be slow and occasionly on certain apps will crash and you need to force close. ITs a great phone for texting, multimedia, games and social networking. The main problem I find is the battery life; if like me you are on it a lot, ie texting facebooking gaming etc then it uses up battery life quickly, it needs to be charged at least once a day. However there are some tricks to help maintain your battery,you can download a battery app that helps maintain all your running apps in the background etc which seems to help, also keep checking on app manager on ur phone and stop all running apps because a lot of the time the phone runs apps you don't really need. Also another good thing to have, for those who only want to use wifi and not be charged, download the free APN app and keep it on the home page and turn it off,this way it stops the phone using your gprs when it doesn't get internet connection, so no hidden charges. I think with using these handy tricks, you can really enjoy this phone! Hope it helps x
i REALLY want this phone! it would be my first phone and i am 11... wada ya think? is it good for texting and internet? i'm getting a phone in a few weeks and i really like this one!

nev, 04 Nov 2011where is this phone released? no one sells it in the philippines.I don't see it either. All I see is all the other optimus except for this.
Personally, I don't think it's the best. I got mine in august and it's gone out for repair. There are breaks in calls, the texting does not funtion as it should... which it funny considering it's a CHAT phone. I also get a force close msg when trying to text every now and again, which means I can't even open the app. Also, while texting off the touch screen the "buttons" stick and it'll mess up what you're typing, when you hit the back space, it whipes out the entire text you just entered. I got a loaner phone (less than a week ago) while mine's out, and I've already begun to experience the same problems....
It only has 320x240 and not 320x480. Only QVGA resolution. Poor resolution but screen brightness is ok indoor.

Yes, all of the above questions are Yes.
It can multitask.
It is great for an 11 year old (full qwerty keyboard for quick texting)
And it has 32GB available for storage. That's a huge amount of music you can store on it. 32GB microSD cards on Ebay can go as low as $35 USD.
