it may not be a smartrhone but it is a genius

omega47 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

it was funny that net 10 announced it as a smart phone, simply because it can download apps. but nonetheless this is a smart buy for those that want a simple device with some smart phone elements. as i said in my review of the optimus v, dont expect too much and you wont be disappointed. at first the Internet performance was as bad as the lg 420g; if you try to enter a page that has a lot of memory the phone kicks you off the net, downloading opera mini HELPS SOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!! its almost like having a blackberry!!! ill fill you in on the details below.

Build quality 5/10 its a good build but the silver plastic back is cheap and mars easily. the qwerty keyboard is a breeze to use
Reception 9/10 pretty good so far
Call quality 9/10 sounds come through nice and crisp, the speaker is LOUD on most calls or songs
Internet 7/10 it is as close to a smart phone as it gets but you cant watch youtube videos
Multimedia 8/10 it has a am/fm radio music player and more, even most smart phones dont have that
Camera 2/10 at 2 mp it takes some decent pics, the video player is very grainy and blurry
UI speed 3/10 it is fast at some times but it takes up to 20 mins to download some songs
Everyday usage 9/10 better then a smart phone because of the battery
Text input 9/10 pretty good
Display 6/10 not the best but images are clear
Battery 10/10 excellent


  • as close to a smartphone as you can get, reliable and has a great battery life


  • dull camera, cheap silver paint, no flash

this phone is great,the keyboard is user friendly,the camera is not so good coz doesnt have flash but in good light works perfectly.the music player is great sound is really good will blow your ear drums off.java applications work really well and downloaded games.usb connection is also good the battery life is good can go for 3days without charging it whilst i surf the net.....the default browser is slow but if you install bolt or opera it works really good
i jus love this phone got the pink one really girly too...and the price jus does it for me..its affordable

The LG GW300 is quite a rare bird: it packs a full QWERTY keyboard and looks like a BlackBerry handset, but has a completely different line of business. Even if it was designed with teens and tweens in mind, we wouldn't be surprised if their moms fell for it too.affordable & easy to use & qwerty freatures makes it look really stylish.great connectivity- be it bluetooth or usb.provides gr8 internet access with lg pc suite..

Absolute junk

This phone is useless. internet is 2g not 3g. Often after powering up it fails to see my sim card, i have to reboot until it does. PC bluetooth software is hopeless, cant find the phone & when it does it cant connect. Battery does not last ANYWHERE near as long as quoted even with bluetooth switched off. Video recording on budget cameras is usually poor but with this phone its so bad you wonder why they even bothered. major problems with micro SD cards, either does not detect the card or displays a error when saving to it. JAVA support is crap, wont run virtually any apps including opera and gmail.

Best price 4 a qwerty fone(fact!)

dis fone's d best, no wifi,no 3g and @ 2ce as much cheaper rate.sounds lyk a gud buy 2 me. D sound by d way is awesome u'll neva miss a call as a result of ringtone volume. I dnt use wifi and 3g lets get real most of us dnt use it @ all mayb jst once a month. Jst install operamin 4.2/50 and u'd enjoy d edge browsin.as for the plastic battery cover. Use sum paper(u noe hw diz tins works). Battery lyf is on par wit oda fones in dis category. Luv d fone pls get it!
