Not Bad, Could be better
SuperChargedPT has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
Overrall, it's a good phone if you want to get used to touch screens and a good beginner phone, but it lacks a camcorder and it's back speaker, used to play back music & ringtones, will get disorded very easily because of dirt. The display is pretty well, dispite it not being at even 720p. Just be careful when choosing backgrounds; if it's custom, it'll adjust to only the screen you are looking at (Upright/Upright and Sideways/Sideways).Build quality 9/10Reception 8/10Call quality 7/10Internet 1/10Multimedia 5/10Camera 6/10UI speed 7/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 10/10Display 7/10Battery 8/10
- Simple Messaging/Texting
- Great Music Player
- Great Battery
- No camcorder
- Not enough storage
- Back speaker can be clogged, meaning that sounds coming from it can be irritating

Do not buy this phone. If someone offers it to you for free, do not take it. Pick another phone. Do not get this phone.
We've returned it to Verizon many, many times. They claim that no one has issues with it except for us. They are wrong, and the phone is terrible. We cannot wait until this phone's contract is up.Build quality 1/10Reception 1/10Call quality 1/10Internet 1/10Multimedia 1/10Camera 1/10UI speed 1/10Everyday usage 1/10Text input 1/10Display 1/10Battery 1/10

Do NOT BUY

It is 3:40 in the morning in cleveland ohio and this is an 18 year old 5000-msg-texter, 450 minute caller coming in. I am sitting here next to this god horrible s**tty phone yet again. I loved LG Cosmos 1. I dropped that bad boy off a high speed golf cart and it made it alive. Ive dropped that thing in water and it still lives. NOW THIS LG COSMOS TWO! I have had it for 2 months. I have had it replaced THREE TIMES. Like an hour ago the screen went black. Not only that I cant turn off the internet, my phone makes its own calls, and doesnt send message. I cant change features on it and when I do it shuts off.

The dumb cosmos touch sucks
lelu500 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
It sucks. It opens browser by itself. LG did a bad job. the QWERTY keyboard is incredibly slow. The touch screen sucks and is insensitive. AND the screen just went all black and no matter what I do, it stays that way! AAAH! I hate it!Build quality 4/10Reception 8/10Call quality 8/10Internet 4/10Multimedia 2/10Camera 4/10UI speed 5/10Everyday usage 2/10Text input 1/10Display 7/10Battery 2/10

- slow keyboard

Read LG Forum Threads Before Making This Mistake
cvaughn196 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
I switched to Verizon for a basic cell phone plan and was sold a Cosmos Touch. I've had the phone for 7 months and Verizon replaced it once because the phone constantly comes on, apparently "browsing," whatever that means. The second phone acts the same way. I have no data plan, have not used the phone to browse, and have not been charged by Verizon for any data usage, but the data counter on the phone shows constant data usage. I constantly find the phone display lit up when the phone is not in use and should be asleep. Verizon techs have checked all the settings and supposedly blocked data use on my plan, but the phone continues to act the same way. The constant activity uses up the charge, and is eating up the battery. After only seven months of use, I have to charge the phone every night, or it will not last through the next day. Verizon tells me that LG designed the phone to act this way and it is not their problem. The forum on LG's site contains multiple threads detailing this issue, going back months. The LG forum moderators continually apologize, promising to send the complaints along to the developers and promise a fix is coming. Don't hold your breath. I'm not going to make any other ratings for the phone (it won't let me use zeroes), because this issue makes any other pros or cons moot.Build quality 1/10Reception 1/10Call quality 1/10Internet 1/10Multimedia 1/10Camera 1/10UI speed 1/10Everyday usage 1/10Text input 1/10Display 1/10Battery 1/10

WORST phone ever!! Do not get this phone!
vh1smith has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
I've never taken the time to write a review but for such a HORRIBLE phone I felt I should take the time to warn other consumers! This phone constantly reboots when you are trying to text. It would also send texts to the wrong person. or i would send a text but it would not show up as sent so i never knew if that person rec'd the text or not. The sound quality sucked when I actually tried talking on it...i felt like i was talking on an old cordless phone from the 80's. I didn't get online with it so i can't give any reviews there. the camera was horrible...so much so that if i wanted to take a pic i would have to be outside, then when i sent it to someone they said it was too small to even see anything. I had verizon send me 3 more phones since it was still under warranty (over the course of two weeks) and all 3 phones had the same issues. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE! Waste of money. although i did get it for free, it was a hassle calling verizon all the time. if you like to text or talk don't buy it.Build quality 2/10Reception 2/10Call quality 2/10Internet 2/10Multimedia 2/10Camera 2/10UI speed 2/10Everyday usage 2/10Text input 2/10Display 2/10Battery 2/10

ed4e_babii has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
i got my upgrade early because my motorola rival crashed and i was stuck using a voyager. the voyager was ok...outdated but service was excellent. when i called the verizon guy he said he would recommend me getting the kin2m. i wanted this phone soo bad, so i said no i want the cosmos touch. he sent it to me, and no i dont regret for a second getting this. its everything i need. love the touch, only bad thing is that it has bad battery life, but i text a lot so that explains it.Build quality 9/10Reception 8/10Call quality 8/10Internet 1/10Multimedia 7/10Camera 8/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 8/10Display 10/10Battery 7/10

This is an amazing phone! I think you should get it, but if your not used to keyboard texting...

I've had this phone for about a week. I'm really happy with this phone. I had the EnV 1 before I switched over to the Cosmos Touch and this is definitely an upgrade. My old phone was bulky and looked outdated. This phone is light-weight and the touch screen is fantastic. One problem I'm having is that sometimes when I slide the phone shut and randomly restarts itself. Is anyone else having this problem?? As I said, I've only had this phone for about a week but I could see this problem definitely becoming annoying in the future, as any person would.Build quality 9/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 8/10Camera 8/10UI speed 7/10Everyday usage 8/10Text input 6/10Display 9/10Battery 8/10
- pretty good battery life
- camera has good quality
- sometimes will restart itself
- sometimes i'll end up having to send a text message again because it never sent the first time.

pretty desent phone... not horrible but adequite
DAC has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I haven't had this phone very long but I do see some of what the other people are talking about.. Like with the sending to wrong people and shutting down while texting has happened to me.. I've had this phone for a week and seems good for texting but not so much for calling.. camera is only 1.3 MP or whatever but the screen and display quality is actually pretty good.. overall not a bad phone but I don't recommend this phone for talking so much but there is a slight delay with sending texts but nothing to complain about for a cheaper phone.. PLEASE REMEMBER that I'm only going on the phone I have and some are just built better then others..Build quality 8/10Reception 6/10Call quality 5/10Internet 5/10Multimedia 8/10Camera 4/10UI speed 5/10Everyday usage 8/10Text input 9/10Display 10/10Battery 8/10
- great screen resolution for the price..
- texting was pretty fast for me
- nice keyboard. letters and numbers are perfect size for me.
- call quality and reception is kinda bad..
- when u open and slide phone shut it likes to act up
- no videos so that means no videos of ur friends or children... and yes even if they send them to you they won't play

Its and OK phone
ChillT has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
It was an ok phone for me. I did receive a lot of problems but it was also a good phone. It is a very durable phone but very sensitive. I accidently dialed my friend at least 12 times. Speakerphone was good. I lost reception in some places but not all. Texts sometimes went to the wrong people. But this is an ok phone.Build quality 2/10Reception 7/10Call quality 3/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 3/10Camera 1/10UI speed 4/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 9/10Display 5/10Battery 1/10

Worst Phone Yet!!!
los has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
All around bad phone... Drops calls, restarts when sending texts, no video, suckish camera, BAD! Also, if i slide it open, the phone will restart half the time. When i turn it on, most of the time, it will say, "Use Genuine Battery Power Off" and then count down from 10 and turn off.

DONT BUY THIS PHONE
angel123450109 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
If your reading this good because this is not the phone that you want. For one lets start off with texting. After sending a few messages the phone will restart. Also i have to end a message and resend it becaus it says its in call state. If you text a lot (and most people do) this phone isnt for you. Another thing is the camera. Every picture i take usually has bad to terrible quality. The phone also breaks on the outer reigons fast too. The screen begins to have scratches soon also. When im in a calll it usually drops and i can hear an echo from me or may not be able to hear the other person. For a few weeks it may seem like a good phone but soon you will begin to have these problems and more.

Really Cute Phone
jadethejoker has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I got this phone a couple weeks ago and LOVE it! I explained a lot in the ratings, so be sure to read those. I've been wanting this phone since November 24 when it first came out. None of my calls have been dropped and the text sending speed is faster than everyone says. This phone has it all! My old gross Motorola Rival could only record up to a minute, so this is a really big upgrade for me! The touch screen is WAY more respondant than neveryone says. I love this phone!

I have had this phone for about 4 and 1/2 months and i love it! I am a texter and I love to text with this phone. It has cool options to color the text or background. I talk frequently on the phone and it has great service. The battery life is long. One time it lasted me a week. I could say so much more amazing things about this phone it's perfect for beginners that want a simple phone. (but if you wanted you could get bing) I would totally recommend this phone. The keyboard is very comfortable the only flaw is that media messages pop up a lot.Build quality 9/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10
