9/10 AVG.
RATING

Based on 8 reviews

The LG Optimus Showtime offers the amenities of a smartphone without the need for a contract.

This prepaid phone offers mediocre specs: a 1GHz processor, 2GB of storage, 4.3” screen and comes with 4GB in the microSD slot. There are no notable expert reviews on this product, however many users are impressed with the overall quality and speed of the phone. According to many users, the UI of the phone is incredibly responsive as is the speed of the Wi-Fi network and processor.

While there are generally positive reviews from users on the Showtime, one drawback of the phone is its battery life. The LG page mentions it has just 6 hours of actual talk time. With various apps running in the background, the battery drains much faster.

Despite this, most users are happy with the quality and price of the phone.

The Good: Good processing speed, excellent phone coverage.

The Bad: Poor battery life.

Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.

Worst phone ever.

(4 months ago)

This phone is almost useless to me. The most basic thing is to be able to answer the phone when it rings. With the ridiculous "Swipe" feature I cannot answer the phone. I miss 9 out of 10 calls. I just now missed one after "swiping" 13 times. Calls go directly to voicemail. I have... More

I've owned it for roughly 8 months or so. It is a pretty responsive phone and I love it. No problems at all.

LG Optimus showtime

(8 months ago)

This LG Optimus showtime has been everything i was looking for in an upgrade from a flip phone and at a price i could afford. I have thought many times of upgrading again to a samsung galaxy or even an I-phone, but there is just no need to. This phone does it all. I am very picky and look for the best... More

Awesome phone. The price is great and cannot be surpassed in its performance by any other phone thus far.

The best phone with no contract.

(about 1 year ago)

I have always had LG phones and never had any real problems, then I tried the Motorola Defy, That was a mistake, no service (aka sprint) And now I have the LG Optimus Showtime, and WOW what a great phone + it is on Verizon towers. Best phone ever!

A lot of BANG for the buck !

(about 1 year ago)

I had done the reasearch on all of the phones and had made up my mind to purchase the Samsung Precedent but at the counter I ask the sales girl if there had been any new phones that I had not seen and she said that this had just come out and handed me the LG Showtime. I read all of the specs and decided... More

Simply an awesome phone!

(about 1 year ago)

I bought this phone at my local Walmart on February 23rd, the first day they put it out on the shelf. Here is a little story of how I ended up with the LG. I was previously loyal to Samsung, as I was very happy with the performance and features of their devices. But eventually the time came where I had... More
