The Bottom Line:
If your looking for a budget friendly way to have entertainment and still stay in touch this is the phone for you.
By not being new to using smart phones, I had my expectations when buying the LG Optimus V. This phone had everything, from good notifications to just playing music. Granted I caught this little gadget on sale on Black Friday for a total of $54.11, I'm impressed. Now if you're looking for the LG Optimus V to be a Samsung Galaxy s2 killer or iphone killer then sadly I have to inform you that its not anywhere close to that but still packs its own kick. Using Android is pretty straight forward and so is using the Optimus V. Heck I barely needed to refer to the User manual.
Now the only thing that I have come to hate about this phone is the little internal memory that it has; compared to other smart phones I have used in the past this came up a tad short but can be fixed by having a memory card that is bigger than 2GB. Most apps can be moved to the SD card (others can't). I will inform that you can turn off swpe from the messaging if you just can't do it or don't like that feature and you can save your battery life by putting the phone in Airplane mode when your not using it or download juice defender in the Market (which is free and a true must have when saving juice)
Trust me by having this phone for little over a month now I've come to love this phone more than any other one I've worked with or brought. You could save alot of money buying this phone especially since it was under two-hundred dollars WITHOUT a contract and can be used with the cheapest plan from Virgin mobile of just $35/mo.
