Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.
It gets the job done
Although there are a few glitches, I've had my LG Eclypse for 2 years now and it has worked great, even after I dropped in in a bucket of water. BUT, just a couple of weeks ago my speaker randomly stopped working so I cannot talk on the phone anymore. Besides that I love the keyboard and it works goodLess
Slide out keyboard!
Over all a pretty decent phone... had some issues with battery life but after changing som some settings like sync off it is quite good... can last at least 2 or 3 days using it regularly. In comparison with other phones I like it quite a bit... very user friendly... I have had mine for over a year now and it still workd really good... 1 con is the dust gets in the keyboard and scratches the keys... I have dropped it a buncha times and it still hasn't broke!Less
Utter garbage. Should not be sold.
From the time I got this phone, it was nothing but trouble. Phone required manually manipulating my settings every time I lost WiFi signal, because it could not, for the life of it, automatically switch back from WiFi to a mobile data network. 22 days after buying it, the touchscreen is completely dead. Now, after a hard reset, I'm stuck at the "Setup" screen because the phone ignores its own keyboard during the setup walkthrough. Good job guys, you've made the most useless smartphone in human history.Less
This phone is absolutely amazing. Only one problem, Battery life. The phone runs excellently, but what's the point if the damn phone can't even turn on!?! I went online and did some research, And the reason for the battery drainage if because of the wifi connectivity. So you just turn it off right? WRONG! Every freaking time you turn it off the wifi, after you turn it off, it will automatically turn back on. It's like having all your favourite foods right in front of you. Behind an unbreakable glass wall. It sucks.Less
I hate this phone
this phone does not shut off properly and constantly restarting itselfLess
Love the phone but battery sucks!!! Changed it twice
The phone is great, love the keyboard for texting unfortunately the battery dies within hours after charging ALL NIGHT LONG! Changed battery yesterday, charged it up all night again and after 3 hours of being on, battery drained yet again! As much as I love the phone, the battery needs to be updated. Called Bell store AGAIN to complain...have to go in person and they don't return calls...hate going there yet AGAIN cuz of their faulty product.Less
Poor battery life even with GPS, bluetooth and WiFi turned off and screen turned to low power. Never had as many dropped calls on any other phone. Keyboard is the only nice thing on it. It makes me miss my Blackberry.Less
This Phone i got back on Dec 2011 and it is caused me nothing but trouble it hangs up on its own well talking to someone, battery life is very poor and warranty doesn't seem to exist.Less
This phone is amazing
i love texting and this phone it's just for me. The touch screen keyboard is very easy to operate with and the qwerty keyboard is even better.Less
1. Excellent sound and clarity for phone calls; 2. Slide-out full keyboard makes it quick and easy to send text messages. I like the smooth touch of the keyboard keys. 3. Dial key-pad is awesome; 4. 4G speed makes this a fast phone 5. Large touch screen is very cool 6. Camera takes great photos 7. It's a super cool phone that doesn't require an expensive Data Plan. Note: The battery drained really fast during the first week because I spent a long time on the phone exploring all the icons, wallpapers and setting up the options. After the 2nd week the battery drainage was no longer an issue.Less
