Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS

Android Ice Cream Sandwich Operating System

This phone runs the Android 4.0.4 operating system (dubbed Ice Cream Sandwich), which adds powerful new ways of communicating and sharing while improving on the best Android features: easy multitasking, rich notifications, customizable home screens, resizable widgets, and more.

The updated Ice Cream Sandwich interface features an onscreen navigation bar that replaces the hardware buttons for Back, Home, and Menu found with older Android-powered phones. And with Google+ integration, you can video chat with groups of up to 9 friends as well as easily upload and share photos and videos. Other features include:

Face Unlock

You can now unlock your phone with just your face using the Face Unlock option. It takes advantage of the front-facing camera and state-of-the-art facial recognition technology to register a face during setup and then to recognize it again when unlocking the device. Just hold your phone in front of your face to unlock (or use a backup PIN).

And the lock screen now lets you do more without unlocking. From the slide lock screen, you can jump directly to the camera for a picture or pull down the notifications window to check for messages. When listening to music, you can even manage music tracks and see album art.

Home Screen Folders

Quickly access related apps right from the home screen by organizing apps and shortcuts into folders--just drag one app onto another to create a folder.


Multitasking is even easier and more visual in Android 4.0.4. The Recent Apps button lets you jump instantly from one task to another using the list in the System Bar. The list pops up to show thumbnail images of apps used recently--tapping a thumbnail switches to the app.

Voice Input

The new voice engine in Android 4.0.4 lets you dictate the text you want, for as long as you want, using the language you want. You can speak continuously for a prolonged time, even pausing for intervals if needed, and dictate punctuation to create correct sentences. As the voice input engine enters text, it underlines possible dictation errors in gray. After dictating, you can tap the underlined words to quickly replace them from a list of suggestions.

Android 4.0.4 Features
  • Global roaming in 220 countries
  • Direct access from the lock screen to phone, camera, and text
  • New home screen layout with enhanced launch bar
  • Improved voice input: hold down the search key to dictate emails and text or navigate to an address

I love smart phones... I have owned the: IPHONE 4s, iphone 4, Google phone 1 and 2, HTC by t-mobile and the one I choose to use is the LG Mach 4. This phone connects automatically to my Bluetooth in my Mini Cooper as well as to my home and work WiFi... battery life is solid for a full day of smartphone continuous use and it recharges quickly... Advantages? Intuitive android function and no dang itunes nickle and diming to death, google play music, FREE apps, MICROSD card storage, office documents and a great tactile feedback keyboard. 4g is when needed but can be easily switched to 3g to ave power. Don't believe the critical reviews this phones is a huge value and works well.... only complaint? No one can match the iphone camera...this one's 90% as good but not as perfect

The LG Mach is an awesome midrange phone with great bang for the buck. If you need a physical keyboard like me, this phone is right in between the Kyocera Rise (low end) and Motorola Photon Q (high end) on Sprint. Some 'professional' reviewers will complain about phones still running 4.0 when there is 4.2 out. 50% of Android users are still on 2.3, and only 25% are on 4.0, so don't get too caught up in the version number; it's mostly nonsense. Again, you're paying a little bit extra to get better features than low end phones, but not getting slapped with a really expensive phone, either.

+ Runs Android 4.0 like a champ.
+ Battery easily makes it through the day and is replaceable.
+ Keyboard is easy to use and has dedicated number row.
+ 4" Screen is plenty large enough, bright, and easy to read.
+ VERY thin for a keyboard phone at .48".
+ Sound is plenty loud enough if you need it.
+ Camera pics/video look fine to me. Don't expect a super awesome camera on a midrange phone.
+ Great reception: 1-2 bars better than my old HTC Evo Shift.

- A bit heavy for a phone because of the keyboard.
- No notification light for missed calls texts. (I will note that SOMETIMES I get a blinking green light for a text/phone call. I don't know if the lack of a light notification was a software oversight, a bug, or something LG will implement fully in the future. Or maybe I was just seeing things.)
- Does not cook pancakes in the morning.

Had it for about a week now.

I had a Galaxy SII previously, and you can tell the difference in build quality (LG feels cheaper - but alas it is... :-0 )

Overall though its a good phone.


Good response times with apps, etc.

QWERTY - ahh how I love to type on a real keyboard.

Slim for QWERTY phone.

Battery lasts a good amount of time.


No LED notification (but there is a work around with other apps like Light Flow.)

Camera is definitely NOT 90 percent of iPhone. Its really unremarkable. Not poor, not good, just, well, unremarkable.

After coming from a high res display - the one on this is also just average. Again, not horrible, but definitely not like the Galaxy.

Overall, if you want an inexpensive QWERTY phone with ICS - this is a good buy.

Despite being the thinnest slider on the market, it has an above average battery. With careful use of apps, it also sleeps extremely efficiently with 70% battery or more being left at the end of a workday (light usage) being common. Even on a off day of gaming, my wife has yet to kill a full battery in 16 hours. Its got a ton of memory for a cheap phone, and the processor is no slouch, I haven't seen anything it has trouble with. The cpu governor is odd, popping from full speed and back to slowest. I wish there was a popular root option, it appears only generic root tools are available.

LG's take on the customized Ice Cream Sandwich isn't terrible looking, and actually functions well. Many of the missing features of the stock launcher are there.
LG's stock keyboard has Swype functions built in, so when I take the wife's phone I don't feel inadequate without my Swype.

I've heard others report the device being fragile, but so far so good.

Why on Earth would LG decide to flip the comma and period keys on this keyboard?! I always have to stop, look at the keyboard, and remind myself to hit what should be the comma key when I want to end a sentence. Ugh.

Even though this phone clearly has a light sensor, there is no way to have it automatically adjust the brightness of the screen based on ambient light. The best workaround for this that I have found so far is to get a brightness adjustment widget and put it on the home screen. This is my first Android phone so I don't know if rooting it will allow me to solve this problem at the OS level.

The lack of a notification light for missed calls and texts is another disappointment, but there are apps that can mostly solve this problem.

Despite these, overall I really like the phone. Decent-size display with a good picture, not too bulky despite having a physical keyboard, good battery life, very responsive. As far as I am concerned, for $20 you cannot beat it.
