It is reasonably well built. It's not as tough as my old brick (ancient Kyocera - what a tank) but then again, I doubt any new mobile is.
Style is modern if ubiquitous, you seen one flip phone, you seen 'em all. I would never have bought one if I didn't lose my beloved brick, but once I did, I was happy with the purchase. And, I don't look like such an old man with an old man phone any more, so I suppose that qualifies as a positive in the style department and really a phone is supposed to be for talking isn't it?
Value for money. Does a lot of things for the money. Web surfing, email, camera, games, GPS etc..
It is reasonably well built. But, it is not VERY well built. I've dropped mine numerous times, and done silly things like use it for an impromptu beer opener with no ill effects. However, all on it's own, the number 6 button has become a bit of a sticker, sometimes you press and get no 6, sometimes you press and get 2 sixes, both very annoying - esp. if entering codes you can't back up on. And this before the thing is 6 months old. I should point out that nothing sticky (or anything liquid or otherwise for that matter) has been spilt on the phone, so I am inclined to think the occasional six button failure is purely product quality related. I haven't heard of any similar complaints so I may have just got a lemon in that department.
It's a phone, I can talk on it. I try not to talk on it where it will annoy people.
All in all, a purchase I am happy with. I would recommend an LG phone to my friends.
