One of the reviewer had given a 2 star because his phone auto dialed...and I did test that out too and did find out that , that was in fact a problem as with the slightest slide of the slider physical keyboard the tough screen comes alive...., but I found another quick fix to it...just enable the screen lock from Settings-Locations & Security and enable screen lock.
Imagine a unlocked iphone at $600 plus and without extended warranty and replacement imagine your kid loosing it or jumping into the pool with the iphone in his pocket....???? $600 + gone right away...with this one all you loose is 50 bucks...
Well this one solves all the purposes and beATS THE IPHONE PRICE BY MORE THAN 1/12 THE COST OF IPHONES and still has almost all the basic featured that the iphone has including Voice navigation to all popular apps, Wifi, Cellular data, 3mega pix camera. Oh yes with the iphone the price difference between a 16Gb Vs a 32GB is over or around $200...but in this one if you needed extra memory for your songs and videos you can upgrade to UHS(Ultra High Speed) 32 GM micro SD card for just around $20.
No kidding...you need to try out the power of this one to believe it...I am a fan...of it... I am using this one on a H20wireless SIM and get decent 2G speeds on cellular.
Many android apps work on it. Comes with Youtube, Facebook, Twitter apps and some games. Downloaded Pandora and Dictionary and it worked fine.
Charge lasts for only about 5 hours on continuous Wifi usage.
It needs a MicroSD card to take pictures (You can use upto a 32 GB card).
Could not find a cover nor protection screen for it (A factor to consider if its for kids)
Update: Little over two yrs old and its giving trouble, maybe I had my hopes too high for this phone..lol
I called LG support to find that this phone was manufactured for sale in Canada. If you are in the US like I am, they say that you will have no warranty, and no way to buy replacement parts. That doesn't bother me so much, since the cost of the phone probably doesn't justify the hassle of sending it in for repairs. It's just the availability of accessories that bugs me.
UPDATE: It's been little over a week with this phone and I've encountered a problem: I cannot send or receive picture or video text messages. Bummer. I CAN send/receive emails with image attachments, though. My daughters will just have to send me emails instead of text messages if they want me to see their photos. I put an SD card in the phone right after I got it, but that didn't help any.
Another problem that might not be a problem with the phone as much as with the operating system (or perhaps with the entire cell phone industry) is that my phone doesn't use the SD card for most apps. I keep getting notification that I'm running out of storage space, even though the card is practically empty. And from the forums I've searched, it looks like you need to be a courageous geek to by-pass the operating system to get practical usage of the SD card. I'm still researching this problem, and if I find a reasonable solution, I'll update my review again.Read more ›
