nifty review

It is a tank. It does not break. It cant even save pictures or backgrounds After 5-6 years, it finally had slight texting glitches It WILL last i played catch with it I even threw it up in the air to prove it's brickness It wins for anyone that does not need a camera or mp3 player

Had my 5400 for about 5 years now, other than the battery not holding quite the same charge anymore (which is expected) i really have no complaints, i've dropped it countless times and it still works great, the internal memory is a tad small i find though, you can only store about 40 text messages before you have to start deleting, but turning on auto delete fixes that. over all i really can't fault it, it's stood up to rain, snow, me falling on it, me dropping it, and god only knows what else my buddy's did to it. this is definately a solid little phone.

Not Worth It

I had this phone for one year and don't know why I kept it for that long. I was looking for just a basic, reliable phone to talk on. I di not need nor would I use my phone to listen to music, surf the net, or take pictures. Unfortunately, this phone was not reliable. I do like its layout which is simple and easy to use and the reception was good (for me). But, after just a few months of light to moderate use, the battery wouldn't charge when plugged in and the phone would randomly turn itself on and off when just sitting there. The battery also got extremely hot next to the face after just ten minutes of talking. Also, notifications of a new voice mail sometimes didn't appear for an entire day. This phone was simply too much of a hassle and not reliable enough to use even as a basic talking phone. Less

this phone was great, probably my favorite, but i think its black not blue like the site stated.

Utter Shite (on Bell)

Had this chunk of stock-parts for a year and some now, and it's big selling feature is consistency. The 5400 is consistent in failing to make the mark. First, at least in the Western side of Canada, there's been an open service ticket re: internet not connecting for over a year. The phone's sold by Bell, but apparently this model isn't supported on the network. Don't know if thats something for the provider or the manufacturer, but I'm inclined to think it a combination of both. And now, the charger plug doesn't connect. A while ago it had to go in pretty deep (as mentioned) then it had to be in deep and in just the right position, and now... it apparently has to be in a input hole I'vent found yet. Unlike the typical LG products, this one seems to have been made in the trend of 'disposable technology'. Bad move. Less

I have been using this phone for about 2 years now, with the carrier, Bell (Canada). I don't have that much concerns with it, it was able to las a long time. The only problem that I have is the battery and the charging. After using it for a long time, the battery seems to get VERY weak, and shrunk the talk & standby time. The Travel Charger that comes with this phone is kind of crappy too. I don't know if this has to do with the age of the phone, but I seem to have to jam the tip of the charger really hard into the hole to get it to work. It must be inserted deeply, which I don't like. The volume rocker bulges out too much. The phone itself is easy to grip, and with no un-nescessary sidekeys, it makes gripping a breeze. I don't understand why many people are complaning that there is no game support. Well there is on mine. You have the capability to download Games, Ringers, Screen Savers, Apps and others. Well, I would recommend this phone to anyone who is looking to use without alot of bells and whistles, and use it for basic phonecalls and web browsing. Less

Pretty good phone.

Great simple phone for talking on. Doesn''t have alot of fancy features. Functions very well as a voice cell phone!

Not Up to Parr

Okay, I am on my third LG 5400 and that had to be sent away for repair as well. The phone signal sucks, The ringer isn''t lous enough and this thing is a huge boat! It wouldn''t even fit in my standard cell phone holder. However it has a really good solidness about, it fells liek I can drop it and not break it. I have sat on it a few times too becasue I have a bnast habit of putting it in my back pocket and forgetting it is there. The ringer however on it is too uite, I have to rely on the vibration. All in all it is a great phone, not to many features. I hate how it always starts off in t9 input, it is useless. Less

It does 1 thing and it does it exceedingly well

There''s a reason why devices such as the iPod are the best out there - they look good, they feel good, and they do only a couple thing and they do those things exceedingly well.

There''s a reason why devices such as the iPod are the best out there - they look good, they feel good, and they do only a couple thing and they do those things exceedingly well. This phone is the iPod of cell phones. It feels solid. It doesn''t feel like it''s going to snap. The buttons are slightly rubbery and give a good grip on your thumb when dialing. The reception is excellent, and the standby time is outrageous. I''ve had this phone for about 4 days now and the battery is still at 75%. The software is well designed and very easy to use and very intuitive, and you are given a choice of menu styles. The software also comes with 3 or 4 different themes. It''s easy to navigate and exceptionally easy to use. The screen is bright (except in sunlight) and vibrant and is great to look at. My only problem with this portion of the phone is that the the phone feels sluggisgh when scrolling through addresses. But that''s it. I''m not a fan of these all-in-one phones because they tend to forget what the primary goal of a phone is - to communicate. LG hasn''t forgotten this. This left out a lot of the marketting fluff that other phones offer and have concentrated on making the primary aspect of this phone - communication - above and beyond any other phone that i''ve used. This *is* the greatest phone I''ve owned, and hey, internall antennae! Only thing that I think it''s lacking is there''s no Analog mode. But hey, i''m a city slicker for the most part, so hey. Less

Not too bad

The phone works well for those who like a "no frills" phone. I have had the phone for a few months. The phone had to go in for service due to a broken jack. Hard to tell if this was a freak accident or if the phone has problems.
