According to other brands and models of this phone is the most powerful weapon of the screen .. 345x800 pixels in HD, with the multitouch feature more than one point to touch, light sensor, proximity sensor, passing in front of the other phones. very good sound quality 5 mp camera is still good even without HD. already great design.

cinematic screen phone, excellent screen and the pixels in HD, because I just bought a multimedia monster. strereo speaker, not a little of ourselves missing alter the equalizer. As the largest minus the operating system does not have, and only Java application support. LG too bad about it .. this is going to charge at least one of the important issues ..

I was very satisfied with the phone, Seeing as I couldnt get a smartphone without a 6 month 3G contract this proved to be the best thing I could have got. Internet runs fast (At least on Wifi), I love the FM transmitter and the Camera takes good quality photos. However the phone is sometimes slow but then again thats what you get when you multitask...

Design 10/10
Features 8/10
Performance 6/10

Pros

  • Design is lovely.
  • Nice display.
  • Nice Camera.
  • Very usuable Management software.
  • Vodafone 360 sync if you are in spain.

Cons

  • Unusually resolution means its hard to find software that dont bring up the virtual keypad.
  • No app store yet.
  • Youtube videos sometimes do not play properly.

Good looks, slick interface - best LG phone to dat

Had this phone a week now, absolutely loving it.  Amazingly stylish, stands out from the all of other iPhone clones.

Screen is very reactive, and the only thing I would have liked is a back button on the front somewhere, but that would have compromised the looks.

The camera is excellent, particularly the 360 panoramic shots.  Some reviews have criticised the lack of haptic feedback - but you can actually change the settings so it has it.

The browser isn't quite as good as Opera Mini, but is a lot better than some of the others.  And it has Flash Lite, which is a real plus.

You can also customise the menus extensively, if that's your kind of thing.

Messaging works very well, with the full qwerty keyboard in landscape and t9 input portrait.

Video playback is superb, supporting multiple file types and the obvious benefits of full widescreen.

Battery life is a lot better than the iPhone, but will still require charging often if you use it heavily (which you will!)

Features 10/10
Performance 9/10

Pros

  • Design, responsive touchscreen, video playback, vibrant colours, customisable, wi-fi, gps, hsdpa, call quality

Cons

  • Browser, sound effects strange

This Phone sucks!

I feel that this phone helped me in no way. As well as the sleek feature causing me to drop it into the toilet. On a serious note i went through a series of glitches. If your looking for a phone with a big screen go with the HTC Imagio. I used to believe at one time that LG phones were the awesome, but recently its like they hired a bunch of knuckleheads to make phones for us Americans.
