I purchased the LG GT350 mobile phone as a replacement for my old Shine. I was interested in the slide out function for easier texting.
Externally the phone is attractive; I went for the black version, though it does come with an additional cover, which is handy as now that the phone is a couple of years old the back has become increasingly scratched. That isn't to say the build quality is poor, it is actually quite good, but the plastics do scratch fairly easily.
The keyboard works well, and though the keys are close together, missing them happens rarely.
Another feature of the phone that I was attracted to was the touch screen. It is ok; not as good as more costly smartphones, but it does the job with relative ease.
The LG interface has some handy aspects such as assigning friends and family to a quick access screen, though I think I could do without the cutesy animals that represent each person. All in all, the interface is fairly user friendly but perhaps not one for a complete phone novice.
Sound quality is decent, with little interference or noise, meaning both I and the person on the other end can hear one another well, and there haven't been any dropped calls either.
Overall it is a decent little phone, but I wouldn't pay much for it nowadays.
Slide keyboard is a nifty addition.
Touch screen likewise is nice to have.
Range of available colours.
Call sound quality.
Touch screen could be better.
LG interface is decent, but a little cumbersome in places.
In one sound, this phone is 'meh'. I got it as my first phone, and it was supposed to last me a long time, because I'm not one of those people that gets a new phone every time a new model comes out. At the time, I thought it was the coolest phone ever, I was twelve, and the only reason I got that phone was because it had the slidey bit, because that's all I cared about. Turns out I should have looked into it a bit more. Firstly, there is literally no memory with the phone without a card (I don't know if that's normal) but you can literally have three songs on it and that's it. Second, the speakers on the phone are so rubbish and tinny, through head phones and out loud. Thirdly, the Internet on it is sooooooo slow, you can't get anything done before its already charging you. Recently, my phone has also started freezing randomly when I turn it on, and the only way to fix it is to let it run out of charge and then recharge it, it has a veeeery long battery though which is a very good part of this phone. Also, the home screens are pretty tacky, and the touchscreen doesn't respond too well... However, this phone does have bluetooth, a very good and easy to use keyboard (muh easier than the small touchscreen ones) and it texts and calls, so it does what every phone should do. I'd recommend this phone to people who don't care about the accessories and add ons, and just need a basic phone that calls and texts.
I had a Nokia phone before this one but it went wrong so my son gave me this LG phone to see how I got on with it. At first it was awful, I couldn't find what I wanted. There are a few things that dissapoint me about this phone. firstly sometimes out of the blue it just stops it won't let you do anything except turn it off which really isn't helpful when you are in the middle of something like sending a text or using the web brouser. secondly when sending a text there isn't a shortcut to the the phone book so you have to go round the houses to get the number you need. oh and thirdly the games on the phone are awful, when I go to use them it just goes all funny and then goes back to the main screen and also it does not have wifi so I find that difficult to as I am on the net often. However the battery life on the phone I find to be very good. There is something called Live square on there aswell which i think is really designed for kids so if you want a phone for a teenager Ithink this would be great but for me it wasn't all it was cracked up to be
