Pros Compact size, Slide-out Query Keyboard, speaker phone, Camera is good enough, Mp3 is good enough, GOT MINE for $49.99 after $50 rebate. Service is only $40 bucks :)
Cons No web browser, no Really apps.
Summary This phone is perfect for people who talk, text, and take a few pictures and listen to Music. If you want web browsing or GPS get a different phone.
Pros Without being too bulky, this phone feels solid in my hand. The screen looks great, it has a long battery life, and it works on Metro PCS without costing an arm and a leg like their smart phones and touch devices. Oh yea, I love the USB Charger!
Cons Downloaded apps could be a bit more accessible. There is a certain level of clutter in the built-in Metro PCS apps. No touch screen. Keyboard feels a bit small. No deal breakers though.
Summary This is the best phone that I have owned in years. Recommended for people that are not looking for a smart phone, but want more features than the freebie phone that you get at sign-up. It has an excellent design. If you text a lot, you will appreciate the QWERTY keyboard. Having a USB charger can be a life-saver too.
Pros full qwerty keyboard, chat mode for texting, has service in most places
Cons takes a while to get used to texting, not good for people with long nails
Summary I love this phone. I used to have a at&t phone and i must say it was definitely an upgrade. I have service pretty much everywhere. There is also a variety of cases you can get for it if you hate seeing a plain phone. If you are the person that likes to text and call this is your phone
Pros Attractive, compact design that fits in the palm of hand.
Speakerphone gives clear, crisp sound.
Clear calls with or without Bluetooth device.
Easy-to-use (but "no frills") Menu
Love the "Tip" Calculator
Internet is easily viewed on-screen
Cons Although QWERTY boards are my thing, the LG Imprint can be slightly cramped for larger hands (forget one-hand texting).
Capitalizing & using symbols takes some effort to learn.
Battery runs down quickly and requires recharging more than Blackberry.
Summary To cut corner$, I am ending a 2-year contract with T-Mobile in August 2010 and I currently have a Blackberry Curve. I've had the LG Imprint for 2 weeks now and, so far, I have no regrets about the purchase. It's a cute slider phone that my friends have mistaken for a Kin and you will be pleasantly surprised at how much MetroPCS has upgraded their phones. If all you need is talk, text and basic internet, the LG Imprint is your gadget!
"Neat little phone"on by gdkay2
Pros --Very compact
--Feels great in hand
--Small QWERTY keys are raised
--Does everything it's supposed to
--Great slider mechanism
Cons --Samsung MusicExpress had many audio controls for music player-- missing here.
--Corded stereo phones need to those designed for cell phones (no simple adaptor for your existing headset... unless you like mono sound)
Summary Hey, it's basic and cheap after rebates. If you want an iPhone go get one. This is not an iPhone and doesn't pretend to be. The physical design is great to the touch-- substantial yet small. Menus are a bit much, but easy to remember once you memorize a shortcut or 2. Basic web works basically-- not too slow. Can't configure my private email, but I'm sure the 15 or so *major* free services will be fine (phone has pre-set wizards for them all). IM works well. Conversational texting format is nice. Alarms are exceedingly annoying (imagine hearing GOOD MORNING sung over and over by Asian chipmunks to a disco beat). Gladly ditched that one. Recommend it to the basic user. I get a lot of OOHs and AHHHs when I pull it out. I'ts that purrty.
