I have had this phone for 2 years now and have been pretty happy with it. There are numerous downfalls and I am ready to upgrade, but for the price it has been a good phone.

If you like apps, the internal storage is just not enough. Many apps will move to the SD card, but not all apps move. I have had to uninstall apps, clear data, delete text messages, and many other things on a regular basis just to be able to use basic functions (text, browse the web, etc).

The phone has shut off randomly, but never at an inconvenient time. There have been hang-ups, but usually a reboot fixes it. My screen has gone x-ray like a few times, but still works well and goes back to normal after a short time.

Overall this is a good phone, but it is what it is.... cheap. If you like lots of apps, then this is not the phone for you. I enjoyed it and now I am ready to move on to a Samsung Galaxy S2 (which I am purchasing today).

Long lasting battery life that surpassed my expectations. I never have a problem with overheating because my phone always shuts its self-off when every it wants for no reason. Best of all, my phone never wants to take pictures or lets me play my downloaded apps. When I try using the sd card to store stuff is always says that the sd card is un-mounted even tho it has not been touched. If you don't use your phone to check the time this is the phone for you. Every time I reboot the phone or it does it for me it comes back on with an incorrect time and date. The touch screen have a cheap toy like feeling to it. This is my 3rd LG Optimus S. Overall the phone doesn't do what I need it to and I can't wait for a phone that does work.

This was my first ever smartphone. I got it because Sprint had a special where i could get this phone for free, so i did. Worst mistake ever. I was working very well for the first 2 weeks, but then i had major problems. Randomly shutting off when i plug in the charger, random restart atleast once a day, battery would die really fast(which btw i used this phone at all the lowest settings and didnt use it often because of the fear of it dying), and the list goes on. I will never purchase another LG phone ever again. I talked to sprint and LG about the problems i was having and they told me that they were just bugs and they were working on a fix. Horrible.

Prone to glitching, random bugs, slowness, and an unbelievable lack of internal storage that makes downloading apps a pain in the rear, and apps that don't have an option to be moved to the SD a no go. This was my first smart phone, I didn't have huge issues w/ the battery as others have but I have had issues w/ the space, and constant bugs including unexpected phone restarts that happened on multiple phones (I owned at least 4 of these, different new or reconditioned depending on what insurance provided when I lost/dunked the previous one). My rec- even if you're getting it for free, it's not worth it. Spend a couple bucks and get another phone.

I would not recommend this phone to anyone. I have had it for a year and have had 3 of them. It freezes up all the time, and they have factory reset it multiple times. I was once driving to work and needed to get a hold of my husband and it was frozen my entire way to work(25 minutes). Sprint did nothing about this..so we cancelled. It is highly annoying and unsafe when you don't have a land line in your home and need to make a phone call. There are times when I am expecting phone calls and my phone will ring and ring but I cannot answer it because the screen is frozen. FYI this has happened with all 3 of the phones I have had.

I have had my phone for about 9 months. Initially, I really loved the phone. I gave it 4 stars because I am now having intermittent problems with the touch screen not responding and I wish there was a bit more storage space and less preinstalled programs, as I don't know which ones I can delete. Overall, I have loved the functions of my phone and as my first smartphone it is great. For the most part I have been happy with the battery life of the phone. The only time is when I am using the navigation app it sucks all the battery life within about 2 hours. As long as I plug it in during the ride there is no problem.

Although, I should note that my husband and mother-in-law also got the Optimus S at the same time and have had continual problems with their phones. Both are counting down the days until we can purchase new phones.

With this said it seems that there is a quality issue with the production of the phones and if you get a low quality phone you will have continual problems with it.

This phone is the worst phone I have ever had! My camera long ago stopped working. It freezes up a couple times a day. You have to pop the battery out to "unfreeze it". It constantly tells me I need a memory card. The card reader stopped working as well, so now I can only have a few necessary apps or I run out of memory. When you are low on memory the entire phone does not work until you delete something. It's a lot of money to pay for something that doesn't work correctly. Sprint will not give me any kind of deal, I only have a few months to on the contract. It is cheaper for me to terminate and go somewhere else, than to pay a ridiculous price for a used iPhone that Sprint is offering.

I got this phone through my Credo Mobile (which uses Sprint) and I have had endless problems. The phone will freeze up periodically, necessitating removing the battery to reboot it. With the first phone I had, the charger stopped working and I had to get a replacement. Now for the second time in less than a year, the phone again is failing to properly connect to the charger. I've also had endless problems with the phone giving me warnings of being out of space, necessitating clearing data.

Do not get this phone. It's horrible.
