          Worst phone I've ever owned.

          By Nadine

          Comments about LG Encore GT550 GSM Unlocked Phone:

          Biggest mistake of my life was getting this phone. The system is pretty slow, trying to text on it is a NIGHTMARE, worst touch phone ever. Using this phone to text or dial a number is near impossible. Also, the battery has a ridiculously short life, if you try to listen to music or videos. I had a choice between this and the samsung galaxy- I definitely made the wrong choice.

              First I would like to comment on the problems others on this review are having......not every product is going to be perfect, they are mass produced and every now and then bad products get passed along, return it and get a new one....they have warranties for a reason. Now for the phone itself, I bought mine with every feature and quality review in mind, I knew EXACTLY what I was buying, I had other brands in mind but I chose this phone for the feature to price ratio and LG quality. The battery has lasted me up to 3 days while running the music player for about an hour at a time, talking, texting and just getting to know the phone in general. The ringtone and talk volume are loud and very clear. The virtual QWERTY Keyboard is alittle hard to get used to if you have big fingertips but with the phone size the touch buttons couldnt be made much larger. Overall, I think this is an excellent phone.

                  Comments about LG Encore GT550 GSM Unlocked Phone:

                  Of course I expected to not get such a great touch screen that was up to par with it's sensitivity, but I did not know that it would have as much problems as it does. I was disappointed in how the performance was on it was. It freezes constantly, it types what ever it wants, and it will lock up for a few minutes. However it is easy to figure out and easy to use. I do not recommend it for constant texters such as myself.

                      I haven't had this product for very long and already the battery doesn't last and now the phone won't even come on. Before that you had to have it plugged into the charger. I am very disappointed. Do not buy this at all.

                          I have used many phones before this one and none of them even compare. It is easy to use and navigate, it is very well designed, and it is tops in quality. I have not had one single problem with this phone and I love it.
