Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Simple menu, very easy to understand and work your way around.
Touch screen is a decent size.
Internet coverage is good and browsing features such as zoom and entering text are great.
I'm useless at typing on touch screen phones, so it's quite handy that it enters the word it thinks you meant to type!
The phone itself is a nice design, I love the brushed metal effect on the back. And it's not too big for midgets like me to hold comfortably :)
Bad points:
The feature where you add your email address/ social network account and automatically get all the contacts from these in your normal contact list is a nightmare. I ended up scrolling though 10 email addresses between each of my stored phone numbers. I think there is a option to stop this with the social networking accounts, but I had to reset the phone and create a new email address which had never been used to get rid of the rest.
It's not a very nice menu to look at either, and you can't really personalise the phone much. Obviously this is not really a big deal but I would have liked smaller icons and a photo on my background!

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I love this phone, it is very slick and simple to use. The main screen is easy to navigate and unlike most modern android, smart phones you are actually able to find features within the phone. I was unsure about an LG, as have had them in the past and not been very impressed. Although this is by far the best phone i have ever owned. Beats the iphone hands down, quicker download times, apps are growing all the time, tons of free cool apps. I could continue to list the sweet features of this phone, or you could stop reading this and get yourself one.
Bad points:
Battery life is pants, but that is because i can't put it down. Now the music you download and pay for might i add, is not supported to be used as a ringtone, this is unacceptable as i have payed for this song, i have the right to do with it as i please. Very big and prob only let down. BAD LG

Good points:
Features. Wiil fit in the dustbin quite nicely!
Bad points:
Design every time you pick it up the camera comes on, ring tones are bad, battery life is useless, I want to get rid of some of the apps but there does not seem to be a way of doing this, trying to buy a case for it is like hunting for a unicorn! I wish I had never chosen it. oh and I must have chosen the NDSAID (no dam signal anywhere in dorset) option.
