    Pros: price, weight, battery life

    Jan 22, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small size, sound quality, ringer types, simple user interface
    Cons: Very fragile, horrible reception, battery life is a joke, LG accessories don't last

    Pros: Very compact, nice looks, external display, external LED, lotsa features
    Cons: Green LEDs, Cost cutting, Poor quality, wish ringers were louder

    Summary: This is a really excellent phone for the price. I have not had any calls drop. Voice is loud and clear. Size is very small. The phone book is also very useful because it allows you to save a lot of information per name. As of July 2002, should get it for ... read more
