Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

My smartphone, no doubt, has to efficiently performs professional functions such as Document Viewer, Pushmail, which LG Optimus P970 does well. A small device like this might neatly fit in my pockets, but that's all it can and nothing much with the cramped screen size of 4 inches. I more than often go for efficient devices like the as it present me with a robust call management; as I am hardly ever off my phone. Bluetooth in my smartphone is essential more for hands-free calling than file sharing. I am mostly traveling around and even if it is in known streets, I prefer having my GPS navigation guiding me along, in case of traffic or diversions.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

I hate typing messages on the LG Optimus P970 with its tiny keypad as I misspell a single word more than 3 times. Video recording is fun and lets me record all beautiful memories of birthday parties and the energy and excitement of a house party. A smartphone without a good camera is really not my choice, even if the LG Optimus P970 sports other excellent features and fairly makes up. I will need to delete or transfer photos every week if I choose this LG Optimus P970 with its small storage space. The expandable memory of the LG Optimus P970 is a good option for me as against the high priced smartphones which come with high internal memory.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

The 4 inch display may be quite decent for a smartphone but I don't like it for my reading or gaming purpose. Gaming is really a turn off on this 1 GHz smartphone; reading is still bearable. Smartphone storage with such low capacity even for basic apps and programs is really irrelevant. If you have gaming and ebook library as huge as mine, you can never say no to an extendable memory storage.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The 4 inches display of the LG Optimus P970 was the first thing that grabbed my attention. I prefer texting over talking but this screen size is way too cramped to do that easily. It's not that amazing to own a smartphone with Yes, 5 MP camera resolution. There are cheaper options available that too with better camera resolution. I click hundreds of cool pics with my smartphone and don't think the pictures will be so cool with this phone. For me, a smartphone with secondary camera means loads of selfies. Me and my friends are a huge followers of the selfie and groupie trend, we hardly stop clicking 'em. If you find clicking selfies as cool as I do then you should definitely opt for a smartphone with an amazing secondary camera. My smartphone should be doing more than messaging, browsing and emails and that too simultaneously. I feel 2G networks are not reliable when it comes to this. I like the GPS feature, especially for new locations and traffic updates. I don't worry charging when I can charge my phone with the laptop; I can even transfer files with this. The 2 GB internal storage is really very less. If it can't save all my files then what good is it.
