Disadvantages: Quality, functionality
I got this phone in the bright pink shade a few years ago as a present, and I must say I was very disappointed with it.
First of all, it cost quite a bit of money for little to none outstanding functionality. Yes, the keys on the front of the sliding panel are touch screen and light up- but I found that this hindered the performance of this phone rather than aid it- for example at times it would be irritatingly unresponsive and I would have to press down with all my might on it several times in order to get it to respond, but at others, a slight brush of my fingertips would make a call to some random person on my contact book, and on its way, losing me several pennies of my credit.
And back to the non outstanding functionalities: it could make calls. It could send texts. It could take horribly blurred pictures, short videos and maybe play a game or too. Nothing too out of a simple brick phone's league, apart from its touchscreen buttons (and I have given you my view on that). The internet, I found, was so excruciatingly slow and not worth the money you have to pay for it that I only used it once and never again.
But the main problem that has made me so distraught about this LG product is its quality. After mere months of obtaining this phone, I found that it was slowly deteriorating... The phone's batteries lasted for a very short time, the buttons' response decreased and the screen and phone exterior scratched so much if I didn't know myself I would have thought it was a couple of years old AT LEAST. I hardly received any texts straight after they were sent (crucial messages reached me hours or even days after). Bear in mind that this had not been under heavy use- I did not throw this phone around on the floor or anything. I even took the trouble to buy a phone pouch for it. And then one day, it happened. The phone just... died. Completely. It wouldn't turn on, wouldn't charge at all. I even tried it with my friend's LG cookie (or some other touchscreen LG phone anyway) charger which fitted in this one, and, surprise surprise, no response. I didn't even try to get it fixed. I'd had enough of it. I bought a new phone which far exceeded its predecessor and the phone has been rotting at the bottom of one of my drawers or other.
My advice? Don't buy this phone, I have been most severely disappointed by it. In fact, this has put me off the LG company's products completely. I would have been better off with my previous, sturdy old brick. This has been a complete let down for me and it cost over a hundred pounds (though it might be cheaper now, I got it when it was a relatively new product). What a spectacular waste of money.
Summary: Bad phone, DO NOT BUY
