This is the best Metro PCS phone out there. It has a very large Amoled screen, colors are so vibrant it totally blew my mind. It has fast download at 4G speed at locations that provide 4G speed (at my office no less). Touch is very responsive, although sometimes a bit too sensitive which caused me to text to wrong person lol. The camera quality is very good; even the front cam, with 3x zoom and flash. I don't bring my pocket camera out anymore after I have this baby. The battery life after I installed battery saver app it lasted longer and as expected with all smart phones. This is the best prepaid android phone out there and I am still in love with it after 3 months of usage.

I got this phone at a metro store in November and I am so happy with it. I will run down the pros and cons for you guys:

Pros:
Nice camera.
Camera flash!
4G LTE. Super fast data speeds.
Very large screen. Even though I am 6'4", I wouldn't want the screen to be any larger because then I would need two hands to press buttons in the corners (lol).

Cons:
Currently there is no root for the recent ZVC update (which fixes some peoples random rebooting), and currently no ROMs, however this will change very VERY soon since a working CWM (clockwork mod) has been built for it.
Without the ZVC update, you may get random reboots. I, however, have only had it happen twice in two months.
My music playlists randomly disappear. May be fixed with cm7 or ICS custom ROMs when they appear within the first 2-3 weeks of 2012.

Overall I really love this camera and when it's rooted and all the MetroPCS bloatware is removed and it's overclocked (it can run at 1.7 GHz stable isntead of the stock 1 GHz speed) it's extremely powerful and snappy. My battery lasts about 16 hours of medium usage before it needs to be charged again with the stock battery, but you can always buy the extended battery.

I have had this phone for 5 months, and I have not had a single issue with it. It has great screen, and it is fast. I would never exchange this phone for an iPhone; iPhone sucks compared to this phone. Not only the screen is bigger, but it is also sturdy. You can drop it as many times as you want, and the screen will be like new. I have dropped it so many times at the parking lot over the five months, and I just have some scratches on the case but not on the screen. You do not need a screen protector with this phone. Most of the Apple bots I see with their cool iPhone have broken screen. And unlike iPhone, it supports Flash, so you can easily browse all the Flash websites.

I have used this phone for everything: Skype, 4G hotspot (root required), GPS navigation, alarm clock, browsing websites, watching videos, checking email, messaging, and making phone calls. It has performed flawlessly. Sometimes, I feel that I do not really need my laptop anymore.

The only thing that I wish was better is the battery life. On a regular battery, it will last about 7-12 hours on a single charge (regular use without heavy browsing). However, I have solved this problem by buying an extended LG battery. Now, it lasts for about 30 hours on a single charge of regular usage, and for about 8 hours if I use it as a non-stop 4G hotspot. So, extended battery is a must, or you will be annoyed because you are running out of charge. Buy only brand-name LG extended battery from Verizon (on sale for $24.99 for from time to time) for LG Revolution (Verizon's version of LG Esteem) or from MetroPCS (never seen it on sale there). Do not buy cheap Chinese extended batteries!!! I have tried; they are junk and last only slightly longer than a regular LG battery.

I have had my LG Esteem for about 10 months now, and this has to be the absolute worst phone I have ever owned. It randomly reboots itself, and goes through it's battery like there is no tomorrow. I have even purchased an extended battery, but still find that my phone can't go 8 hours on a single charge. I have turned off every running application as well, with no increase in battery life. Do not buy this phone. It is not worth the cost. No matter how well the other features of the phone work (camera, screen, etc. is very good), but if you can't keep the phone charged up, cool features are useless.

All I can say is that this phone has caused me nothing but a multitude of headaches. Just so everybody knows, LG knowingly released a batch of these phones with manufacturing defects to be sold to their customers. Neither they nor Metro told customers this. How legal is that? Not very. Oh, and the supposed update that LG released to "fix" this rebooting issue just makes the reboots last longer (my phone periodically freezes for 10 minutes then finally turns on and off). Ugh, I'm going back to Verizon.

Keep in mind that you can't return this phone once you've used 60 minutes. This is a terrible phone. It reboots itself many times a day, cuts off phone calls, and eats up the battery like a starving lion. After two days, I gave up on it, cancelled Metro pcs for Sprint, and am happy. If you buy this phone, you will be sorry.
