What the Critics Are Saying...


CNET

Aimed at social-networking fans, the LG GW520 has a slide-out Qwerty keyboard and a touchscreen, but it doesn't quite qualify as a smart phone, as you can't load new applications onto it. This is reflected in the price, though. It's available for free on a £30-per-month contract, £17...

- Frank Lewis, CNET

I'm looking at getting this phone and i don't care much about all its extra features i just want to text, and really fast. Would you suggest this phone for me?

No. A cheaper phone without a touch screen is probably the best choice as it will lag a lot less and be faster.

I would not get this phone as I had one of these for less then a year and already the screen is not working which makes the phone non-functional.
