Pros Amazing Screen, Clear Easy to Hear Audio (Even when laying on top of the speaker on a flat desk, Easy to Type on, Gingerbread 2.3, Good GPS Signal, Good Phone Signal, Acceptable Battery Life, Great Performance, Thin and Solid Build but not Heavy. Front F
Cons Battery Life is Acceptable, but not fantastic (None of today's smart phones have fantastic battery life). But it lasts me all day which is all I need it to do. According to the box an extended battery is available from LG although I don't have enough mo
Summary This is a fantastic phone, It has the best screen that I have ever seen. Gorilla Glass too, so hard to break or scratch it. I think the CNet reviewer did a horribly poor job on his review. The 4G speeds on Metro are great (Fast enough that I don't even bother turning on Wifi most of the time), the coverage area in Dallas/Fort Worth is very good also. This is the best phone I have ever owned, hands down (and I have an iPhone 4 in the closet). LG doesn't put any restrictions on what you can install (unlike Samsung on the Indulge).
I honestly can't think of anything I want that this phone doesn't provide, and 4G service with metro is $55/mo including taxes. Boo on all you iphone customers paying $110/mo after taxes for 900 minutes of 3G service.
It's been rooted already and it's an easy process, so root it and pull off two or three pieces of MetroPCS crapware and you have a perfect phone !!!!
Pros Larege screen, flash camera, HDMI out, Android 2.3, Front camera, LTE
Cons Metro's limited LTE coverage. But hopefully that will be fixed sometime soon.
Summary Best phone on Metro hands down. Also, for those that don't want or need a SUPER phone, this fits all my needs and more. To the idiot who complained at the bottom of the reviews about the price... $350 off contract without the mail in is still a great price for this phone. But if that guy would have just waited a few hours, he would have known Metro owned up to it's mistakes, and is accepting the Mail in Rebates for purchases even before October. Battery is not bad at all, and with moderate usage (talk, text and some light gameplay) can last 12 hours. I wound up getting an extended battery since I will take advantage of the unlimited data with Netflix.
Pros Large screen, bright, front facing camera, flash, responsive, fast internet even without 4g or WiFi (4g not avaliable in my area) best battery I have ever had with a smart phone or android phone.
Cons I have no complaints about tis phone so far!!
Summary The battery life is not great, but it does last me all day, any other android or smart phone I owned never lasted me all day, so I would say that the battery is not all that bad!! Love all the things you can do with this phone, and the size of it may be a problem with some, but I love the large screen. The camera is awsome, and I like that is has a flash, and front facing camera!! As for price I think its a STEAL for a phone like this. I have paid more and got less, and had to be locked into a contract. Overall I am 100% happy with METRO, and the LG ESTEEM :)
Pros wao. i think this would be the future company for any person that like save money and get a good phones.
for the time they been out and how fast they going, for next year would be better and better. i know some people like to pay just the name to get th
Cons MetroUSA wireless for all
Pros Vibrant display, LG UI, Fast, 4G Capable
Cons Battery life, occasional lock up, death grip
Summary I switched to this phone from the Motorola Triumph and I love it. LG's UI is really nice and clean and I love the added features coming with it. Things run quickly and smoothly on this device (even though I don't live in a 4G zone). The display is vibrant and large.
I have had some issues though. When I grip the phone, the signal (WiFi and cell) drops. I don't know if this is just my particular device, but it can cause some irritations. There is an occasional lock up, but it's sporadic and not too cumbersome. The battery life isn't as bad as what I had on the Triumph, but it did overheat at one instance. Again, sporadic issues.
Other than some minor hiccups, this is a fantastic phone.
