a Somewhat Helpful Review

I have had this phone, LG VU CU 920, for a total of two years and about to upgrade, perhaps to the iPhone 4 but I have not set up my mind yet. I just wanted to give a review before letting it go.

First Impression: Phone seemed great. I never used the TV future which was offered via AT&T as Flo TV. The UI was pretty good and scrolling seemed snappy. MicroSD card provided a convenient place to store music, pictures and videos. The music player on this phone was my bathroom music player.
With experience: However, as time went on, the phone seemed to be unresponsive at times. I would have to restart it by taking out the battery and putting it back in at least once a day. The good part about this was that at least the battery compartment saw some fresh air and it got clean. But that was the only good part. The address book is a bit unintuitive and for some reason, the lower part of the screen is less responsive than the others so I have a hard time calling people whose names end with y's and z's.
Battery life however has been excellent considering it is 2 years old. It still holds a day or a day and a half charge easily.
Reception from the get go has been a bit spotty for this phone and I think it's the phone itself and its network (AT&T). On the whole, I would blame the phone a bit more as the 3G signal it gathered was very little. This left me with dropped calls quite frequently in the first year. The second year was a bit better as the signal got better but I still get some dropped calls, perhaps around 5 a week.
