Have had this phone since mid 2011 and still going strong. Long in the tooth in some ways, but overall quite a solid, quality phone. Good battery life, easy to work around the small internal memory (Link2SD), and does everything I need it to do. Big radio fan; love that this thing has an FM radio tuner so I don't need to waste precious b/w on streaming.

Great community dev support, too. (Kitkat! Though still needs work.) I strongly recommend the Gingerbread Oxygen Rom for stability/good battery life and the Holo launcher for a JB-style layout.

bought this phone in aug-sep, 2011, for 10k, this phone is now very outdated, maybe discontinued, but this is a tough phone, I have dropped it so many times I don't even remember, it has been crushed beneath the leg of a chair with a person sitting on it, this caused a very little damage to the back cover, didn't affected the performance, and it dropped once from my pocket while I was driving (no damage!!), it has been practically thrown, though not with intention, this phone is rock solid... it has a low RAM that is why it hangs so much after few months of usage, with time its performance decreases and it hangs a lot, has a very less internal memory, but it has all the features of a good smartphone, battery life is also good, overall it was a good phone, if not awesome.

ROBUST. SHOCK-PROOF. THE BEST!

This is indeed one of the best model of LG.
December 2011-June 2014 Still working great!
Dropped a few times, but still great! Long battery life. Although compared to latest models, this has smaller RAM and screen.

Because of this, I am now a supporter of LG products. Quality assurance is good. Now, I have recently bought another LG phone. Still expecting high quality! ;-)

Salamat LG.

Don't know why people keep saying it cant move stuff to the micro sd card. I could move most apps to the micro sd card and videos and pictures were automatically stored in the micro sd card
