Good: Reasonable quality, good baterylife, the screen is bright. good layout and good the way it comes with a organiser and alarm and other things. Good phone for the price, doesnt break easy either... had the phone for 2 years dropped and stood on many times and its still working the same it did when it was bought. Good internal memory too.
Bad: touch screen is annoying tbh cause it unlocks itself and rings and texts random people leaving me with no credit when its needed. No way if accessing wifi or 3g. camera could be better but reasonable for the price. it wont let you have more than 100 messages in your inbox either so you have to keep deleting them even when you want to keep them.The phone lags quite a bit and is very slow when loading songs and pictures. And touch screen some times doesnt respond so you have to taje out the battery and restard your phone.
Comment: Overall i would say its a good phone with SOME things that could be made better but good value for its price. I would recomend it :)
Good: read pdf and office files, convert and edit images and videos, screencapture of videos. with opera browser or qq speed on internet is without problem, support 32 Gb memory card, make photo even you move phone and image is like when phone is in static position , radio without hands-free
Bad: no 3G, only 2Mp for photo capture, slow charge when memory on memory card is too ocupied with files ...so procesor of phone is not so powerfool
Comment: day by day i find another usefull tips and triks on this performant phone
Comment: NO BUILT IN STYLUS IS A DEAL BREAKER FOR ME I LIKE THE DESIGN THOUGH TOO BAD SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING LIKE THAT WITH STYLUS LIKE THE ALCATEL OT708 WICH I OWN AND HAPPY WITH.
Good: It is very simple and easy to use.
Bad: May stop working, battery doesn't last too long, the camera isn't very good and a little too basic because of no wifi, 3g or such.
Comment: The Lg cookie Fresh is a good phone for "first time" phone owners but otherwise for a bit more money you could get a much, much better phone
Good: Its great, awsome phone great speed dials nd an easy phone
Bad: no internet, no facebook, no youtube nd NO WIFI
Comment: only buy if u dont mind that it doesnt have internet >:(
Good: Lots of things on it if you can found out how to use them
Bad: battery does not last too long
Comment: So many things I would like to do, I have never found a phone so difficult and would not recommend it to anyone. I am very disappointed thought I got the right one. When on a call and you need to put a number in after you are connected you have to unlock the keyboard I find that very difficult. Can not move photo sent by text to my photo folder.
Good: Easy phone, works great
Bad: no wifi
Comment: Good phone but no wifi.
Good: well i got its cool but i doesnt have wi-fi that all and the other thing are coool
Bad: it dont have wi-fi
Comment: cool phone but its doesnt have wi-fi :((((((
Good: Cheap for its quality, bright screen, nice GUI
Bad: Touch screen isn't good enough and phone lags about 2 times a day.
Comment: I had many problems when first bought it but I have solved most of them. The camera is OK for the price. The screen is nice and bright. Nice menu, GUI. I would recommend it
