Pros Screen/picure quality. qwerty keypad
Cons Freezes, limited memory, read below for the rest!
Summary I have had this phone for about a year. It freezes, shuts off on its own, takes forever to connect to calls (even voicemail) I can call somebody and they could have already answered and I still hear nothing. Voicemails will start playing and I hear nothing.When texting, sometimes what ever I am texting will end up on the line or 2 above the line I am texting on and I'll have to go and delete and re text on the correct line. Call quality is not very good, people sound muffled alot of times. Have had many dropped or un answered calls. All of these things started happening within 3 mos of having the phone! It is a little bulky. I do not like the position of the web browser button...oh thats another thing! Sometimes this phone will connect to the internet when I didn't ask it to! I do like that I can pretty quickly check my email. But its pretty basic. No photos will oad etc etc. When i DO wish to use the internet it takes FOREVER to connect (which is why I don't use the internet on this phone except for checking email, the email connects pretty quickly) Wish I could get a new phone but since AT&T have mostly smartphones I'll stick with this cuz i don't wanna pay for the data plan. Wish I woulda stuck with Verizon! BUT its IS a phone and better than nothing I guess
Pros Stylish, easy to text because of the QWERTY keyboard, holds a charge relatively well
Cons Won't let me make calls or check voicemail, very slow, freezes often, shuts off randomly
Summary I love this phone, but would love it a LOT more if it actually worked. It's a cool-looking phone, and I am a huge fan of QWERTY keyboards. But I can never make calls or check voicemail. The phone is extremely slow, freezes often, and shuts off at random times, even at full charge. I have gone through three LG Neon phones in less than a year. I call AT&T often, complaining of the same problems each time, but AT&T refuses to give me a different phone. Each time, they just send a new LG Neon, which always ends up being just as bad as the last.
Pros NICE looking phone... very stylish! Customizable buttons. Full QWERTY keyboard felt nice and was comfortable to use. Neat touch-screen for dialing. Conversation-bubble style text messages were very cool.
Cons SLOW phone-a lot of time to think for each button press. Very weak speakerphone. At mercy of QWERTY for texting. You always have to open the keyboard up to do anything with the phone (set an alarm, call someone using address book, calender entries).
Summary When I first got the Neon, I was really impressed with how cool it appeared. The touch-screen for dialing has a good feel and is easy to use. The phone looks very stylish. The full keyboard is comfortable and feels nice. Also, as with all LG phones, the software is wonderful and the buttons are customizable for your comfort. All that being said, however, there were also MANY quirks with this phone that I just could not get past-- causing me to eventually trade the phone in after 3 weeks for the Pantech Matrix (which I love!).
Here are the quirks I found most irritating:
(1) You almost always have to open the keyboard up to do anything with the phone (set an alarm, call someone using address book, calender entries)-- there is very little you can do with the phone using only the outside buttons, aside perhaps from reading text messages. As a result, you can very seldom use your phone one-handed-- I always had to use 2 hands to do anything with the danged thing!
(2) The outside touch screen for dialing has some glitches. For example, it doesn't go away once you dial someone, so my cheek would press all the buttons when I was having a conversation! Very irritating. Might be a setting to disable that, but I never found it.
(3) Speaker phone was so weak that it was practically useless. No one on the other end could hear me, although I could hear them. I pretty much was never able to use it.
(4) Any texts must be written with the full keyboard-- there is no numerical-keypad option for texting. Which once again means you are obliged to constantly use the phone two-handed.
(5) Phone is SLOWWWWWWWWW. Every button press had a 2 second lag. Doesn't sound like much, but gets annoying if you're like me and are addicted to checking your text messages every few minutes.
I hate to sound so negative, as the phone is conceptually quite nice and perhaps I simply had a lemon. In general, I have always been pleased with LG phones and I would suggest anyone who is interested to go check this device out at a ATT store. However, as I mentioned I wound up having to trade my phone in for the Pantech Matrix (a similar style phone with a better design and almost no glitches).
Hope this helps!
Pros Cool, fun, stylish and full keyboard phone.
Cons I'm on my third LG Neon TE365 and it has the same problems as the first: phone often restarts itself, rings on vibrate, and doesn't ring when someone calls.
Summary Whoever is considering this phone change your mind because all it will cause you is frustration and problems. The phone is full of latent defects! Furthermore, it is impossible to deal with LG customer service. What's a Lemon in disguise? An LG Neon TE365!
Pros Comes in cool colors. Looks adorable.
Cons -FREEZES. Seriously. Its laggy and freezes.
-Its nearly IMPOSSIBLE to make calls, or receive them.
-When texting, it would lag up, and start typing in random symbols. Supersuper irritating.
-SHORT battery life.
Summary I went through two of these phones. On the first one, I just though that it was an issue with that ONE phone, so I bought another. But yeah, its EVERY LG Neon. Its really not worth the money. For a crap 20$ phone, sure, it's okayish. But for a 70$ phone? No.
