Worth it if it's on sale for $150 or less

lg_review has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

Ok, this is SIMPLE: If the phone is on sale for $150 or less, BUY IT!

It has the same specs as the LG Motion, except that it runs on Gingerbread 2.3. Just check out the raw numbers and you'll see you're getting a better and bigger screen.

DETAILS:

Antenna:
I live in the hills, in a basement apartment. Above me are 2 stories. And I actually get reception with this phone in the back of my apartment! In other words, the antenna is pretty damn good.

Call quality:
Voice quality is good, call quality is good. Definitely a strong point.

4G Speeds:

Camera:
The camera is average. Nothing special. Doesn't handle high contrast situations so well. Backlighting really gives it fits. It's not bad though.

Video:
The video quality is good. Don't expect to shoot a movie with it though.

Interface:

NOTE: I have not used JuiceDefender yet, because I want to see how long the battery will last.

The Feel of the Phone:
