Has anyone experienced the AT&T lg shine slider phone?

Asked by Iphone35 (134points) June 26th, 2008 from iPhone

I am more concern with the battery life as far as standby goes, though overall if anyone here has the phone your input overall is appreciated.

The battery life of this phone is alright, it really depends on what you do with the phone. The playback of video’s is a battery killer, and bluetooth drains the juice as well, even on standby. But for normal use the battery can go for 4 to 5 days without recharging.

My finds on this phone, it will loose the shine in no time. It’s really sensitive for scratches and one grain of sand or dirt in the slide mechanism kills it.

This phone sucks!

I’ve owned a large number of phones over the years, and I used this one a few times (my sister has it).
1. Shine: The stupid mirrored screen makes it impossible to see the screen outside, in direct sunlight, any conditions where having a mirrored screen would be a pain.

2. Navigation: The scroller is clumsy and cheap-feeling, and just doesn’t cut the mustard. Even my sis, who has used the phone a lot, finds it a pain.

3. Features: I used the music player for a bit, and there’s no playlist funtionality at all. It also wouldn’t re-scan the music library for music added to external memory, I believe it has to be loaded up using the software and USB cable provided, or sent files via Bluetooth.

In short, this phone makes me angry, it’s so bad! If you want a phone that looks pretty and sucks ass, you’ve found it.
