i had this phone for just over 6 month, it was going pretty well for the first month but after a while the screen would go blank, it was still on because the keys lit up. i would have to take the back off it and take the battery out put it back in put the cover on and then turn it on again and wait for it to load. in the begining it would only have once ever 1 or 2 months but then it started happening at least once a day. sometimes my contacts names took a long time to show in my messages. also when typing the letters take a while to register so i would think that it didnt work but then everything would happen at once

Have had this phone since Feb 2012 on Virgin Big Plan $19BYO. Love the phone, but only problem is that Maps seems to be using about 52% of battery, even though data, wifi and bluetooth are disabled. I used maps when I first got the phone then disabled it. Called LG, complained to shop where I bought it, researched on internet - LG suggested factory reset. Has anyone else had this problem and how did you fix it? Battery lasts 1 week on standby and 2-3 days if used for regular calls, so maybe not a big problem. Is there any way of easily fixing this?

A lot of the time when I turn on applications it automatically gets out of it and tells me there has been an application failure. This happened to me today with the camera and it wont even turn back on. What to do...?

my phone keeps switching to silent mode on its own. I put the volume up and make sure its no on, and 5 minutes later silent mode back on. This its a pain because I miss important phone calls constantly. It doesnt even vibrate. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Can anyone tell me how to log out if twitter on my LG Optimus. I use to be able to hit the back arrow and the logout would come up.

Phone had an issue with the microusb port after only 4 weeks. Took 8 weeks to get it repaired, had to initiate all contact with both companies and neither offered anything in the way of compensation. Nirgin just told me to keep waiting and LG just told me how awesome they were but didn't actually do anything.
Product itself didn't seem too bad but at a 1:2 ratio of being in my hands to being repaired I'm looking elsewhere. Over it, apparently the Galaxy is pretty good!

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
