great phone from LG

Advantages: looks touch screen but still with key pad
Disadvantages: finger prints!
I bought this phone as I liked the fact that it looks like a completely touch screen phone but has a key pad hidden away under the slider, which makes it a very good looking and practical phone.
It comes with all the usual features you would expect from a new phone which includes an alarm clock, calendar, stop watch and a calculator all of which I have used (the alarm and calculator on an almost daily basis) and work well.
There is a three mega pixel camera in this phone which has a lot of useful features which include flash, shake reduction, self timer, colour effect and auto focus. The only problem I have with this camera is that it takes what seems like forever from pressing the button to take the picture and the picture actually being taken, on a few occasions I had moved because I thought it had taken a picture and it hadn't, which was very annoying.
It has a hand writing feature which is for texting but it is rubbish and can be very hit and miss as to whether it knows what you are writing, and it is much quicker to type anyway.
The buttons are sleek and smooth and feel nice they are easy to use when texting although they are quite small and very close together so could be a bit more difficult for someone with bigger hands than me to use.
The battery life for this phone when not in use is great and when texting isn't bad it lasts for maybe two days but as soon as I take a phone call it eats straight into the battery life and it will die within a day, the battery indicator isn't very good either as soon as It warns me the battery is low it seems to die altogether.
I think it must be a very durable phone because as the clumsiest person alive I drop it on a regular basis, even, on one occasion into the bath and it still works absolutely fine it is however covered in scratches to the front screen, but I feel that it is probably my fault because it came with a cover that I have never used.

Summary: a nice looking good value phone.
