I had high hopes for this phone. I bought a refurbished one. It is getting worse as time goes by. First I installed a new UI, GO Launcher, to replace the horrible LG UI. And I installed all my favorite Google apps, which were strangely missing from the phone. But nontheless, the phone is buggy and slow. Sometimes it shuts down DURING A PHONE CALL. Just now it buzzed non-stop for half a minute, but wouldn't respond to anything I did. Then it rebooted. This is an unreliable POS. How I miss my old HTC EVO! Also the headphone jack is horrible. It barely takes a standard headphone plug, and I have to keep pressing it in or it comes out at the slightest touch. So sad I bought this phone. The camera is horrible too. Horrible dynamic range, really poor detail.Build quality 4/10Reception 7/10Call quality 8/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 5/10Camera 1/10UI speed 1/10Everyday usage 1/10Text input 4/10Display 4/10Battery 5/10
- Large screen, but not bright.
- Slow. Random reboots. Horrible UI.

Great phone!!!!!!Fast LTE and everything you expect of a phone. The quality of the phone is just amazing!! Especially being an android it basically lets you have a variety of apps. the is also speedy with little or no lag. The only issue I have is the battery life. The battery life last me for 8 hours if using heavily. I also love the small notification light. I love the browser especially since it supports flash so web sites looks the same as in a desktop! But the best feature is LTE!Build quality 8/10Reception 9/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 9/10Battery 8/10

LG Revolution is the furthest thing from revolutionary. Do not buy this handset.

_So I got the LG Revolution and I absolutely hate it. I'm going back to the Thunderbolt. The screen is so sensitive that it's near impossible to select something. It charges slower than any phone I've ever had. The call quality is mediocre. The speaker volume is pathetic. It constantly loses wifi, even though I'm in the same room as the router. The 4g speeds are slower than my Tbolt. The dialer has an annoying vmail button on it that you can't get rid of, so if you hit it, it not only tries to sell you Verizon's s**tty visual voicemail everytime, but once you decline it, then it dials into your voicemail. When you get rid of the ignorant app categories, except two you have to keep, it doesn't sort the apps alphabetically anymore, so you have to have an eagle-eye to find the app you want. The stock keyboard is HORRIBLE, and I mean horrible, so you literally have to download Better Keyboard or Android Keyboard to even function in a text message. The last and possibly most annoying part is that it is based off of Bing everything, and even if you install Google, you still have to use Bing with the search button, unless you install Decrapified ROM; which I did, and it errored out all the time. All the way around this handset sucks ASS!Build quality 4/10Reception 4/10Call quality 5/10Internet 4/10Multimedia 5/10Camera 1/10UI speed 2/10Everyday usage 1/10Text input 1/10Display 9/10Battery 3/10

i like it

I have had it only for 2 days but so far the things i like is the touch screen along with the lightness and mobility for its gargantuous size. I compared the weight in my hand to the iphone and it seemed that the iphone was heavier. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

One of the worst Android phones

I kept it for about 3 weeks and then returned it. While 4G was great - the phone itself was terrible. It's well built, I'll give you that. The screen was so and so. Battery life was an absolute piece of crap. I exchanged it for an iPhone and couldn't be happierBuild quality 8/10Reception 5/10Call quality 6/10Internet 5/10Multimedia 4/10Camera 2/10UI speed 1/10Everyday usage 7/10Text input 8/10Display 5/10Battery 1/10

Good Phone from LG. I have had this for 6 days from when it came out, and am enjoying it. Camera is a bit disappointing but I have my own amazing digital camera so I do not use the camera on the phone unless I do not have my digital camera with me. Too many things to say about the phone, if I go on, I might ending up writing an essay. byeBuild quality 9/10Reception 10/10Call quality 9/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 6/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 7/10
- Everything except Camera and Battery
- Maybe Battery life is a bit short
- Camera is not in the high end 8MP but only 5MP

The phone does what it needs to its good and reliable but what can i say this device looks like a cheap knock off of the HTC Thunderbolt. I had it for a week and returned it because it was not worth the buy. The Samsung Droid Charge is a promising phone excellent in design, quality, speed, and network ever since i made the change the Droid Charge has done alot and simplified my lifeBuild quality 3/10Reception 9/10Call quality 8/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 9/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 8/10Text input 9/10Display 6/10Battery 8/10

Best phone verizon has to offer, and probably the best they have ever had!

EXCELLENT. this phone is basically FLAWLESS. (and I should add that I am the HARDEST person to impress. period.) It has an LED indicator light, 1500mAh battery, amazing display that can be seen in bright sun light. I do not think that there will be anything that can rival this phone for awhile. (not on verizons network anyways)Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10
- everything really, only one flaw that I can find..
- the cover that goes over the micro USB port when not in use is a bit of a short cut design, but there is nothing besides that
