Pros The full keyboard is great, as well as the macros keys. Camera takes great pictures.
Cons the key lock does not work and you will be making lots of unintentional phone calls
Summary Don't get this phone if you ever plan to put into your pocket, carrying case, or purse. The phone's lock does not work and the face is extremely sensitive. Why have a key lock if it still makes unintentional phone calls while in your pocket. My wife's phone does the same thing and she has resigned to leaving the phone at home where it will not be accidently touched. Protective covers do not help either. Also, mots administrative functions such as alarm clock, calculator and such must be accessed from opening the phone, not on the face menu. Why the limitation.
The sensitivity is way too big of an issue if you plan on carrying this phone in anything. After contacting LG on this they said there was no fix for it.
Don't bother with this phone. I'm ready to return both mine and my wife's.
I would have given it a one star rating if the rating icon on C-Net was working properly.
Pros The camera is ok at times and the flash is very good, but the video sound quality is terible.
Cons I had the EnV 3 for about 4 months and then it started to turn on and off on it's own, go off in the middle of classes when i didn't get a call, text, or anything. Then it fell out of my hand *once* and broke. I could remove the right hinge with ease
Summary Over all it was terrible and i am going to buy the EnV touch and finaly get the phone I wanted. I would NEVER Tell anyone to get the EnV 3. Worst phone I have ever had.
Pros Good keyboard
interior screen size
Cons Randomly resets itself
battery is faulty and will reset with preassure
exterior screen shorts out
will randomly delete your text message storage
Summary Basically, it all comes down too what you are willing to deal with.
this is a good messaging phone for the price.
working at bestbuy mobile, this is the number 1 retured, exchanged phone we see. wether it is because they dislike the design or it breaks on them, we see at least one a day sending back to the manufatcor.
in my opnion, bite the built and get the alias 2.
much better funtionality and build quality.

Pros Nice keyboard.
Cons Inner screen broke after less than two months for no reason. Interior screen is completely black. The phone also randomly shuts itself off. I would look for a different phone.
