Can I start of with how much I love this phone! I mean, I am so in love with this phone so much that I ended up keeping it for myself instead of giving it to my husband for his FAther’s Day gift. It does everything I need it to do. It takes great pictures, it is reliable, it is bigger than my HTC Evo and lighter to. The LG Spirit 4G is simply amazing. I truly am so happy with this new phone. If you are looking for a new phone for your dad or husband, this phone is it. He will simply love it. You might even see him jump up and down or cry!
I was offered the opportunity to review a phone from Metro PCS, a no contract company that has coverage in more states than Cricket. Metro PCS is At & T coverage but no contract. It is the same service you would get if you went directly through AT&T minus the contract that they stick you with. They offer the same types of phones you can get anywhere else. Here is a map of their coverage, all of the purple (and there is a lot of it) is their coverage area! Metro PCS also allows you to bring your phone to their service as long as it is a phone under their service agreement. I did not see my HTC Evo on the list but I noticed there are a lot of phones that are eligible.
Now back to the LG Spirit 4G Cell Phone
The LG Spirit 4G has the full Andriod market so you don’t have to worry about certain application not being available. The camera takes very good photos, much brighter and clearer than my old phone. The camera also has a cheese shutter function, time catch slot and a high resolution camcorder. I have to say I am extremely impressed with the camera quality, compared to my daughter’s iPhone , the picture quality is very very close if not identical. Since I am a blogger, I use my phone’s camera daily when I am reviewing products or finding deals in stores, so having a phone with good picture quality is extremely important to me.
Also, as a blogger, I need to be able to get onto Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest whenever I find a deal that I need to share. Typically, I do not post blog postings directly from my phone unless it is something I need to jump on right that second, but having access to social media sites is imperative. The LG Spirit 4G held up very well for me. Facebook was slow to load a couple times but other than that the phone worked well for my social media needs.
The only thing that did not work and I am still not sure how to make work, is the GPS site maps. The phone was sent to me with a number outside my area, so I am hoping once I transfer my phone number to my new account that the area maps will work and I can use the GPS function. For now though, it us a pain because I rely on it so much and not having it is a big hassle for me.
For a phone of this size and what it can do I think the price is very good. It retails for $269.99 but is currently on sale for $219.
