LG smears it's own reputation

My old phone was the LG 4600, which was a tank! It went through the washing machine, out car windows, out of the pocket on the motorcycle on the highway...and STILL WORKED. I thought the integrity would carry across the brand but WHOA NOT EVEN CLOSE.
My new LG 8100 worked quite well for a while...then it began to require frequent power cycles for 'updates.' Pretty soon it was power cycling on it's own, mid-text and online browsing session primarily. Eventually got stuck in a perpetual loop, turning off again as it restarted.
Sent in for service where I purchased it, waited a month and found a better service centre, and the first Telus dealer STILL HAD NOT SENT THE PHONE OUT!!!
I have had mine in for service twice now, still dealing with power cycling on its own, but so long as it still makes calls and texts and takes pics, I'm holding out for the end of contract. New service provider and data phone here I come!!
