CNET

Despite a few quirks, the LG Neon is a good simple messaging phone from AT&T.

Lg Neon Hater

I hate my phone. It takes FOREVER to turn on. Its cool at first. But then you learn to hate it. The camera is actually pretty decent! I look really nice in the photos.. :D


my lg neon turns off all the time, when ever i close the slide too fast. i do not suggest getting the lg neon. it also is very slow, and gets over heated when texting multiple people, and turns off.
