"The LG Octane was almost good enough to keep."1.5 starson by Koldsteelspike
Pros: I love the LG Octane features. It has an excellent camera with ok editing options. There was a nice big QWERTY keyboard. It has a nice big screen. It is almost perfect.
Cons: The echo was unbearable for my wife. The person you are talking to hears themselves talking. She said it also sounded like I was "digitally." My voice broke up also.
Summary: Listen to these reviews. We read them before we purchased the phones. We read one that said that the problem was fixable. We tried the fixes. We took it to Verizon for the software updates. Nothing worked. So I contacted LG to see if they have heard of the problem and intend on fixing the issue perhaps via a recall. Their reply was "Yes, but we don't have any solution for this. the only way will be to send the phone in and in that way our technicians will try to fix it." My wife and I returned our phones. This is a great phone except for the main problem. If you really want it, wait for LG to work out their "bugs." Wait for a review that says they have fixed the problems.
