Pros The voice command works great. The touchscreen is easy to use and find all functions. I like the vibrate feature. The music player is a great feature and sounds great without a headphone.
Cons The lock button goes on to quickly while calling a # and needing to dial an extention. The bluetooth feature freezes up or does not work.
Summary So, this is a pretty pricey phone. I like the music feature and that you can download music via bluetooth, yes this feature works great! The touchscreen is the reason I bought this phone. Messaging is great but when using the keyboard function you need to have toothpick fingers to hit the keys.
The big problem with this phone... The bluetooth function either can not connect to a device or keeps trying to connect to a device on the list. I do not think this phone was set up to have multiple bluetooth devices. I exchanged the phone twice and than went with a Blackberry Curve, it connects to all my bluetooth devices.
So, if you are looking for a multi function phone and do not require bluetooth, go for it.
Pros I really like the touch screen, size, it has everything I want. I got it at my AT &T store for $129.00 and that included the bluetooth headset, home charger, car charger and leather case! AT &T is having a big sale on LG's right now.
Cons Haven't found any yet. Some of the things other reviewers claimed are not accurate. I will explain. I like not having to get a data plan with my service like you do with the iphone.
Summary One complaint is about the screen lock. There is a place in settings where you can change this default. You can set it to 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 45 seconds or one minute. Or... you can TURN IT OFF completely if you wish.
The other thing was about not being able to set special ringtones for your contacts. You can do this - I did already. But you must have your contacts saved to your phone to do it. If the contact is only saved to your sim card you won't have the option. You can also set a picture to display as a caller ID for your contacts if you want to.
Pros The 3in touch screen is amazing. full sized keyboard and works pretty well. Can stick a Micro SD Card in it for making your own ringtones. Simple to use and laid out well. Battery life is much better than Iphone.
Cons When adding contacts you can switch to the full sized keyboard. The ringtones and wallpapers are lacking anything good but with adding a micro sd card that isnt much of a problem. No Wi-Fi
Summary The Iphone gets all the hype but to use all its features you pay through the nose with the plans. If you still want a nice touch screen with many features then this is your best bet. Think a data plan for the Vu is half of what the Iphone is too.
"Not worth it."on by yumyummss
Pros cute design. very simple. perfect for the technologically-disabled. T.V feature is great if you wanna pay $35 a month for it.
Cons very short battery, scattered menu, very little memory, almost no features,
Summary battery life - sucks. worst than any phone that's come out in the past 5 years.
it's always on 3 bars of full battery. and out of nowhere, you find out your phone is close to dying.
camera - works great under sunlight. but has really bad quality indoors.
menu - you can't choose what goes in the shortcuts menu. and it all just seems to be scattered around. no customizing option whatsoever
scrolling - the scroll bars are way too tiny to even use for scrolling. and if you try to use the screen to scroll you end up clicking something else by accident
texting - i have to resend any text that's over a page long at least 2 or 3 times before it actually goes through.
memory - very little space. texts get full way too soon
alarm clock - if your ring tone is on vibrate, even if you set an alarm tone, it will still vibrate. the only way to get the alarm to actually make a sound loud enough to wake you, is to turn up the ring tone for the phone calls
screen - you can't see anything under sunlight. especially with some of the themes.
basically, it's the phone for those who are technologically-disabled. it's only feature is that it's touch screen. everything else is too simple and too boring
Pros Touch screen is fabulous, excellent picture, great for texting
Cons Not customizable at all.
Summary I love this phone and use it mainly for calling and texting. The video and camera features are great. I can't get past the fact the phone won't let you create your own shortcuts or customize your settings much. The texting features are good, but you are always having to reset your text input to your preference instead of it saving your last preference. The alarm function is good, but you have to keep resetting the alarm tone each time because it is default set to the AT&T ring and it won't keep your last ring choice. I love the volume buttons on the side, very easy and accessible for if you want a quick change in setting like if you go into a movie or something. Reception is good and people can hear your voice easily on their phones. I haven't decided how well I can hear people on the phone. Not as good I would say as a nokia phone, but still better than most. The phone is light but feels sturdy. I wish there could be a way to answer an incoming call with the touchscreen, but understand why that feature is not the best choice. Overall a great phone, just irks me that it is uncustomizable to a user's preference. Grr!
