"Diamond In The Rough"

I normally do not consider LG when purchasing devices, but I obtained this one from a friend who could not use it for business (compatibility with a credit card reader). I traded a Motorola RAZR Maxx for this phone and I have not regretted it!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

I DO NOT RECOMMEND FOR A GOOD PHONE
charlesv has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
It freezes up, overheats, then the screen will be all messed up. Flashing, jumping random colors, and black outs. Had it in my pocket one day working on an engine and I don't know how but the screen cracked and now I can't do nothing with it. And it's just a real little small crack. Plus the battery will decided on how it wants to be. One day it's awesome, next day it's s**tty.Build quality 7/10Reception 10/10Call quality 9/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 6/10Camera 8/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 4/10Text input 8/10Display 9/10Battery 6/10

Love this Phone!

Not a fan of LG by no means but took a chance with this phone based on user and video reviews and glad I did. Had for a week now with no lags, freezes, or random reboots. Love the 720p HD screen, I am very happy with this phone :).Edit: It won't let me change the text under the camera review, after playing with the camera in HDR mode the pictures come out nice and crisp and would recommend only using this mode to take pics!Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 9/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 9/10

It's been great to me.

I am a fan of the minimalist design of this handset and I like the way this phone feels in the hand. My past 3 phones were the Galaxy S3, the Droid 1, and the Droid 3. Aside from design differences and only 1GB of RAM, this phone is pretty similar to the Galaxy S3.
The HD display is beautiful and bright. The phone sounds crystal clear during calls with plenty of volume. Every feature of this phone works as it should with minimal lag. The camera, in my opinion, is great. It's perfect for a normal camera, while I have my HD JVC Camcorder, which does not take pictures at all. Although, the video camera on this phone is simply amazing, I showed it to a friend who said, and I quote: "I've never seen so much High Definition." Overall, this phone has exceeded my expectations and I use this phone as my primary phone and have 2 Droid 1's as backup (Bad accident with S3 and Droid 3 lol).
The bottom line: If you like the way the phone looks and feels, it is worth every penny. Kudos to LG for making such a great phone!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 8/10
- 4.7 LCD screen
- Slightly better processor than the SIII
- Great camera for a phone
- Fast interface
- Smartshare/NFC is awesome!
- Videos and Music sound great
- Battery can get annoying somtimes

Super fast processor, easy to use, auto spellcheck is cool but can be Kind of annoying especially when using bad language youll have to double click bad words so the phone remembers them and wont try to auto correct the words. Battery life is really good, better then my motorola droid x was, no hdmi port like my motorola droid had but still hdmi compatible with the right cable. Lots of shortcuts, incoming text messages pop up instantly no matter what your doing which is cool. The ringtones that come on the phone suck, but you can eadily download new ones. One of the only complaints is the phone is kind of thick especially with a otterbox style cover, the alarm is also not super loud like my droid was, not a big deal. Also does not have skype like my droid x had, but the keyboard has nice big buttons which kind of makes up for it. Other then that its a awesome phone for the price. If i had a choice i would take a htc dna or a s3 over it but it blows away every other phone in the same category i would take this phone any day over a iphone 5 it out performs a iphone 5 in every catagory. Its also a lot less common then a i5 or s3 which makes it unique in my book. Call quality is super clear even with my skullcandy heavy medal earbuds with mic 3people have no problem hearing me even when im talking and riding my bicycle at the same time. your on a budget and cant afford a htc dna or a s3 then this phone is a excellent choice.Build quality 10/10Reception 9/10Call quality 9/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 8/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 8/10Display 10/10Battery 9/10
- 4.7" HD screen liquid crystal clear display, fast processor exact same processor as the s3.
- multimedia is excellent, equal to s3 in every way at a lower price.
- no skype, text features like smileys no good.
- bulky, thick, could use a better camera
