I've had this phone for just over a year now, it was a christams gift. I found that the size of the phone effected how well the phone picked up your voice in a bad way. This phones layout with the buttons is designed to make you accidentally hit the internet buttons, costing you more on your plan. I've enjoyed the texting in this phone, however withen 6 monthes the buttons began to fade which leads me to believe it is poorly made. i noticed withen half of a year the screen would randomly turn off. My big issue with this phone was that it had a one year warranty. Two days before the warrenty ended, i was walking through the mall as normal, and made a call to my father, only to discover that the audio didnt work whatsoever. Me being a techy guy quickly discovered there was a problem with my phone. The next day (day before warranty is over) i was at a McDonalds texting some friends and the screen suddenly turned white. i restarted the phone only to discover the screen WAS BLACK and stayed that way. I now had a phone which i couldnt see or hear anything on it. i then had a 3 week arguement with my phone companies (LG and Virgin Mobile) about getting my phone repaired because they said it was out of warrenty even though i made the call two days before.
Heres the pros and cons
good battery life
Touch screen only works for dialing
annoying menu layout
bad scrolling 'stick'
As far as phones go, its not a bad idea for a starter phone. Comparing it to the other amazing phones out there i have to give it a 2/5 sorry Lg
