Good for first few months, then gets progressively worse until unbearable to use

I should clarify that I used to own this device, and had it for about 9 months until the battery decided to overheat to the point of being literally too hot to hold after 2 minutes of viewing the HOME SCREEN. This device was great while it lasted, but great in terms of mid-range phones. It had it's multiple flaws, but it functioned pretty well for what it was, it just doesn't really hold up to today's standards. When i upgraded to an Optimus G (Sprint version) the change was so apparent, it made the Marquee look like a dinosaur.
The device isn't that bad, but I'll get into specifics below

Half the apps freeze the phone. Freezes 2-4 times a day. Usually runs very hot even when idle. Still runs gingerbread. It can still do the basic function of the phone just fine. The phone has a small display. Only a 3g phone.
It's a good phone but, Not really that impressive.

I like it. Don't get me wrong it's a good phone. I just wasn't all that impressed. I felt it was mediocre at best. It's got a few odd bugs like going nuts when plugged into a regular non-usb charger. It practically goes nuts by opening applications you didn't pick and if you try texting, It'll pick letters you weren't even close to. That's kind of odd to me. It's also kind of flimsy. It feels very cheap and fragile. I know that is what they were going for but Sprints version was a better quality. I guess we got the cheaper lower quality battery cover. Shame. Also the battery wasn't really as good as they'd praised it to be. I find my Triumph to have better battery stats TBH. Also like another person said, If you are writing letters too fast the keyboard lags and disappears. I'm glad I use Swype, Regular typing won't work on this keyboard very well.
Overall it's okay but it might be one of the few phones I part with.
An Average phone

I came from Virgin Mobile using the Motorola Triumph and I thought this was going to be an upgrade, but come to find out my Triumph handles 2 and 3D graphics better and all the benchmarks for the LG Marquee was a lot lower...but the Camera and 720p is better and the call quality and speaker phone is really nice. Love the NOVA display, but the phone sucks the battery life.
Good Little Phone

I mainly love 3 things about the phone! 1) Great looking phone. 2) I also love the NOVA display, brightest display on the market. 3) I love the size of it, it's not too big, light, and fits well in your pocket. There are also some weaknesses that it has, but I'm pretty sure my phone is defective because it got decent reviews with the areas that I'm having issues.

Bad and Good

The battery dies quick , but i must say it's very light . The phone sometimes freeze up when using the keyboard :( it also over heats when using the phone and having it on the charger at the same time . I turn my phone off so it can charge a little quicker but i will be sure to take my charger with me everywhere if i plan to stay out long . The camera is GREAT ! Holds up too 4000 pics . very cute and stylish , Internet is a lil bit slow but it better than my other phone . you can also hear everything on the phone including the speaker . If your current phone is bad i suggest you get this phone.
