"This really had the potential to be decent phone...."1.5 starson by kzero69
Pros: Practical, sleek, good 3.0 camera w flash, feels solid and sturdy. User interface is well designed and easy to navigate.
Cons: Flawed software will cause your phone to shut itself off; a common occurring problem among env3s.
The outer screen is still too small and doing anything without having to flip it open makes its exterior functionality very limited and inconvenient.
Summary: My first months experience with this thing has been a nasty one. Primarily due to it having a habit of turning off whenever it feels like it. I have to check it every 5 minutes to make sure the screen hasn't gone black, gray or white, as if it's trying to encourage OCD behavior. It will randomly shut off multiple times a day (it has shut off on me twice within 5 minutes a couple of times) and even does so when I close the screen or press a mere button. It will happily oblige dying on you for whatever reason. Sometimes there is no explanation.
This is apparently a software issue that LG has admitted to, but come on....really? It's like your car engine shutting off on the freeway. Unreliability like this is completely unacceptable. I'm on my second one now and I'm crossing my fingers.
