LG PM-225 review

Performance

Battery Life:
The 225 is advertised as having 210 minutes talk time. After my testing, I found that to be accurate. My actual minutes were a little below 200. The talk time was good. I usually would charge a phone every night, but I could actually skip a night with this!

Reception:
The phone had average reception. I did encounter a few “No Service” areas, but I have found that to be true with most phones with Sprint PCS. Since I am reviewing the phone and not the service, I gave it an average rating. Sprint is definitely a great service, just not as good coverage in my area as with other companies.

Call Quality:
The call quality was pretty good. When I had reception, I could always hear pretty well. My callers always gave me “thumbs up” when I asked them about how well they could hear me. Even when I did my own tests I could hear the caller (he was using the PM-225) nicely.

Speakerphone:
The full-duplex speakerphone performed well. I did not have an echo issue and could always hear the caller. The caller does receive a lot of background noise from my end though, but not horribly.

Conclusion

With its low pricing and decent performance, I would actually recommend this phone. It looks great (with the exception of the bulky middle) and feels the same. I was disappointed in the screen and that is something you look at a lot! If you do not mind those two things, I believe everything else will suite someone, looking for a good phone, nicely.

I've had this phone for over a year now and it's been an OK phone but certainly not the best. UI speed - medium; not super but not bad. design - it's a smaller phone and fits well in pockets etc. sound - I don't notice anything bad about the sound; it's OK. battery - lasts maybe 2 days idle power without losing bars. features - good for mid-range phone, camera isn't terreffic. easy to use, price was ok? can't remember. I used a data cable I got off ebay and was able to use my own ringtones and wallpapers without having to buy any or using a web uploader. custom ringtones however don't loop seamlessly, there's about a 1 second pause. I noticed a bug that started happening where when I replied to a txt from someone who had a phonebook entry the phone for some reason added an extra number onto their number causing me to have to change it OR send a message to a bogus number. o_O it's an okay phone I guess for someone who doesn't want something to really complain about.
