Rating: out of 5.Don't buy it
The phone is rubbish. Brought it brand new and the battery life is only like 1 day (even less if your on apps or facebook, for example). The camera is shockingly cheap at 3MP and with no flash. The wifi range is shocking, at around 10 meters max from the hub for it to work adequately.It keeps "not recognising" my sim card, and its hard to get the battery off to take it out. And it has random moments when the phone does not respond, and it is not reponding as i write this review and i have waited an hour and its charging at the same time. Waste of money. My mate has th HTC Wildfire for around the same price, but 100 times better than the rubbish LG GT540. Trust me, I feel like throwing it at the wall, I am going to give it back to the shop and get my money back and buy the HTC wildfire.
Rating: out of 5.Okay, but seen better
cant find how to enlarge the print on my phone,nor can the shop where i bought it from.
