LG phones are way better. I have the LG K8 at the moment and it is awesome. Everything has easy access, it's lightweight, quite cheap (for the quality) and is still in perfect condition after 5-6 months. The battery lasts the whole day sometimes and I really recommend it. Hope this helps even if it's too late!
I have had my LG6000X phone for almost 1 1/2 years and I love it! The camera on the phone isn't the greatest but I don't use the camera enough to want a spectacular image. It does the job though.
The menus are easy to navigate and learn. I especially like the "alarm" feature, the "scheduler" feature and the "notes" feature. It also has voice recording for memo needs and has all the capabilities of Internet and Get it Now access.
I dropped it in water last night so I am anxiously awaiting to turn it on this afternoon to see if it is fried. If it is, I will do everything in my power to get the same phone. No complaints here - LG is VERY reliable.
