What's great about it: Large screen, cheap, good camera and camera options
What's not so great: Everything else
This was the slowest, freezingest and most unresponsive android phone I have ever seen. I got this free in the at&t store as an upgrade and I wish I never did. I had it 3 days and took it back. I went back to my windows 6.5 Samsung Jack...a much more reliable and capable phone. The touchscreen was very unresponsive, kept deleting apps on its own, dropped signal in places I used to get a full signal, never fully recognized my memory card and always asked to reformat it, most of the apps that weren't mysteriously deleted would force close and then continue with the audio even after closing, phone locks and screen blacks out and doesn't come back on until it is charged at least 20%, gps was unreliable-it would switch locations pretty suddenly to different states and cities and the phone would freeze for indefinite amounts of time until you had to pull the battery out...and boy was it hard pulling the battery out. gps would also leave out the voice guidance because it had some internal tts (text to speech) issue that would always prompt me to download a tts app but would not recognize the software after it was installed and then delete it. Had Very low amount of available memory. The charger cable didn't even properly fit the phone and had to be mounted on something to make proper contact enough to charge or I had to use my girlfriends cable for her tmobile comet. It didn't even have swype texting. How ridiculous is that? Battery life was not very good either. I wonder if I'm even talking about the same phone the other people who reviewed this phone had. I normally like lg, but this is the worst phone they have ever manufactured.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

What's great about it: Mobile Hotspot
What's not so great: Phone size, Camera
This phone has better features than most higher price phones, the hotspot feature is FANTASTIC.
The only cons would be the 3.2 megapixel camera and the phones overall size. Other than that is a BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!!
I would recommend this to a friend!
