Review: LG Connect 4G for MetroPCS
LG almost succeeds in crafting a good smartphone for MetroPCS in the Connect 4G. Some of the key features, such as battery life, display, and overall usability, score really well. The problem is the features that don't score well, including voice/data performance, and the speediness of the user interface. The result is a mixed bag.
If either voice or data were excellent, I'd have no problem recommending this device as a good voice-only phone, or a good data-only device. With both being less than optimal, it's hard to green light the Connect despite its other strengths.
Add to these the somewhat questionable camera performance and laggy user interface, and the LG Connect 4G becomes a case of the bad outweighing the good.
