I've had this phone since September 2008, and I have had no problems with it so far. Some of the cons that other people mentioned do sometimes cause a conflict, but it's extremely rare and not even major enough to call it a conflict. No phone is perfect.
I, personally, love the touch sensitivity of this phone. After using this phone, I HATE using the iPhone because the touch sensitivity SUCKS. Apple products use body heat to direct their touch calibrations which makes it extremely difficult to click small items. However, for the VU, you can use the tips of your fingers or your fingernails to touch even the smallest icons. The screen is very durable and does not scratch easily, so there's no need to worry about scratching the screen with your nails.
The best thing about LG phones is the keyboard method of texting! It is SO incredibly convenient and fast. I have had very little trouble with reception for this phone. It seems to work even when my friends' phones don't. The tiny scroll that somebody mentioned is a little annoying, but like the iPhone, you can just scroll the entire screen down without using the scroll bar. The phone's also capable of using mp3 ringtones, but you must have the file under 300 kb; this part annoys me the most, but I'm just thankful that I can use my own ringtones.
Overall, I'm still very happy with this phone. I love how it's extremely light and I love the sleek design. I'd say it's a very sophisticated phone for both men and women. I would really recommend this phone to anyone looking for a new touch phone.
