We picked up an LG Optimus Vu II for my wife. That was the only phone she liked - and mainly due to the 4:3 form factor (her first preference was a square phone -which no one makes now-a-days). So far, she has used it for a month.
We got the phone for a shade less than Rs. 10000 and the specs and performance are both impressive for this money.
The battery life is less than 1 day, if you have your plethora of social apps working in the background and fore-ground with that mighty screen ON for several hours. If you don't use it much it manages to go above one day.
The build quality is not that good - especially the back panel which is very flimsy plastic.
We got a poor quality charger with it which we no longer use. The phone came with earphones which we are yet to try.
With my BB Playbook charger, the phone charges from 20 to 100 in less than 90 minutes.
What you like about the phone is the nice customizations that LG has done to the phone. It is quite similar to the Note 10.1 tablet that my wife is used to (with the eye-detection to keep the screen on if you are in front of the phone, the ability to write notes using your finger or stylus with a dedicated button, the ability to take screenshots and annotate them with your stylus and so on.)
The performance is really good and she has never complained. She is used to the Note 10.1 which is a beast when it comes to performance. Keeping her happy is difficult, and this phone does not let her down.
One weak point of the phone is that the speaker output is low. So, she had to select the "tring tring" ring tone, else the ringtone is not audible in noisy environments.
The camera is pretty good (8 MP).
She is using it on !dea network on 2G and the speed is really good. I am not sure why, but the phone reports it as HSDPA in the network details and the icon on the homescreen top notification area indicates it is '3G'. But the plan is a '2G' one as confirmed from the actual bill.
That was a short review of an imported phone with no warranty, but at really good price.
