Pros I like the keyboard and the big screen.
Cons I wish the camera had a flash, I wish you could text more than 160 characters also phone is too bulky if you have the protector case on.
Summary I purchased this phone in Dec. 2009.The touch screen finally crapped out the other day but can still make and recieve phone calls and take pics. The only issues I had really with this phone was that it did freeze up once in awhile.My phone went in the river over the summer; I took battery out and put in a box of rice for 24hrs and to my surprise it worked fine again.also Iv dropped this phone many of times so im surprised it lasted as long as it did.
Pros call quality, features
Cons battery life, a bit unresponsive to touch
Summary A very good phone overall. I have used it extensively and for the price (free after rebate) it has served me well. My biggest complaints come from the battery life which is not the greatest. Lucky if I get 2 days out of it. And the touch is not the most responsive. I do like that it has been durable for me. I have dropped it several times on pavement and hard surfaces and even got it a little wet with no problems.
Pros I the keyboard doesn't lag. The internet is very fast. The touch screen is amazing, large and very accurate. I love being able to set different text message ring tones for different contacts. The camera is very good. All around best phone!
Cons The only thing I don't like is the little joystick thingy.
Summary I was reluctant to get a touch screen phone but I am very glad I got the Tritan. I have had it for almost 6 months and it has given me no problems at all. I love it!
Pros The full keyboard and being able to set a different ringtone and text-tone, to each person.
Cons Battery life is horrible. Constantly restarting itself. Internet is awful. Failed often at sending text.
Summary This phone sounded awesome when I first got it. Little did I know it was going to be nothing but a headache. I wish it would have started to give me the problems before the 30 days, but of course it didn't start until the 30 days to switch it were up.
Every time I turned around the phone had either froze and I would have to take the battery out and pop it back in, or it had restarted itself. The battery life was just awful. Even if I didn't get on the internet or use the navigator, it was dead in no time. I had a Razr before that and I could talk on it forever and not plug it in for 2 days and it would still have a great charge.
The internet for $20 a month is a joke. I couldn't do crap on it, kept getting kicked off of Facebook every time I signed in.
The first time I complained about it after about 2 months of having it, I was told I had too many pics on it. Though there were barely any. So they moved all my stuff to my card, but I had to move it back, since it couldn't access ringtones or wallpapers off of the card. I switched to my husbands old phone when he got a new one and was so happy with it, until our daughter threw it in the dog water.
So back to the Tritan I went and I was miserable again.
Finally had, had it the other day when 3 times in a row of trying to access anything it restarted itself. They said they could send it in or give me a used phone. I went with the used phone and got a Samsung Caliber. Only have had it a few days, but so far, I'm not wanting to chuck it out of the window and actually enjoy my phone. I even have a youtube app and can actually watch videos on the Caliber unlike the Tritan.
Don't waste your time or money with the Tritan. I know I'm staying far away from LG phones from now on.
Pros Physical keyboard, great sound quality, US Cellular service is wonderful in my area, able to play music in background.
Cons Screen lock's unpredictable at times (Sometimes after sending a text or photo message it'll lock itself, which I'd love, but some times it doesn't.) Keypad takes a little getting use to for those with fatter/larger fingers. Had to upgrade data plan.
Summary I've had the phone for a few months now and I don't understand what the reviews saying that they've had problems with the phone. Perhaps they are using the touch screen all the time. I use the physical keypad when I can, I even dial calls with it. I may be a little bias due to upgrading from the Motorola Crush, but I still believe this is one of USCC's better phones for those on a budget.The "joystick" is useful when browsing the web when you need to select a box to type in. The phone is a great phone under US Cellular service. I still don't understand the low reviews. Maybe the users are a tad tough on the phones...
