LG Helix (MT-310)

 

Oct 24, 2010 by patwackp

When looking to either purchase a new phone or to upgrade your current phone, go to your nearest Metro PCS phone and seriously consider looking at this beauty.

I got this phone this past Thursday as an upgrade to my Kyocera phone because I wanted a flip phone that was also capable of all the feature's that come standard with Metro's $50 plan like: Metro Navigator, Chat Link, Loopt and so forth (inside the @Metro menu.)

I figured that since I was paying for the feature's, I might as well have a phone that supports them. Why not,EH?

I only had the other phone because my original phone was dropped and went to phone heaven and I had to buy one to tide me over until I got more money.

I only looked at this phone originally because my aunt bought this same phone when she switched from Sprint and apon playing with her's, I fell in love it!!! My mind was made up. Decision made!

I had used LG phones in the past with other carrier's and had alway's preferred them over other brand's in the past.

Another great thing with this phone is that all the LG accessories I already own are compatible with this phone.(At least the home and car charger's.) No need to buy them.

II strongly suggest getting this phone. You won't be dissapointed!

Happy shopping!

Love it!

Have only had it for a few days but so far it's a great little phone, fills all my needs. It has a great volume level and clarity, I can actually hear it ring so I don't miss calls or texts. I'm on US Cellular and had to sign a 2yr contract and $54.00 to get it. Only bad thing to say about it is it's burnt orange color.

This phone honestly is pretty good

If your on Verizon you'd see the LG accolade, this one kind of reminds me of this LG Helix AX310. It's not that bad of a phone, and it works pretty good. However I'd just use it for the durability, it's more of a basic phone for most likely an elderly citizen or a teen or a kid for just emergencies, but it works just as good for everyday use, just doesn't have the qwerty and other things that "smart phones" today have.

I would consider this if you are looking for a backup phone if something went wrong with yours, if you are an elderly person looking for a cell phone that is basic and easy to get used to, or if you have a child that needs a phone, but you don't want to pay a lot, because it's free with a new contract.

Thanks for reading my review. I hope it makes some of you guys consider in getting this.

Slick and Sleek

Great over all phone...there are a lot of things that I love about this phone...absolutely AMAZING battery life and call quality, haven't dropped a call yet and it's super clear.

It isn't bulky at all, sleek design/style really makes this phone shine...doesn't take up a lot of space...easy to use.

Great data speed and the larger screen size is nice. Love that I can get email on this that is easy to use...meets my needs!

Cons..
Clear button could have been better designed...I have to retype things often because of it's location...makes navigating the internet harder. There are some features that are lacking on this phone but overall it works great for me.

Cool, sleek design... But still the alpha interface?

The Helix has a very sleek appearance and it gives a very good first impression, but sadly that fades quickly. As soon as you start using it, it becomes apparent that LG didn't spend very much time testing & using the interface. The "Clear" button is (cruelly) directly below the "Down" arrow on the 4-way rocker button, and it feels exactly like the down button. This at first glance seems like no big deal, but you'll soon be cursing that Clear button, trust me. You'll be hitting it all the time (I didn't have it long enough to climb that learning curve).

When texting, you'll find that there are unnecessary steps throughout the process. For example on my previous phone, a Nokia, I could simply hit the same button (the Select or "OK" button) all the way through the process except for the typing of the text itself. SO EASY. On the Helix, however, there are different buttons to hit, up, down, left, etc., so it's truly frustrating once you've done it the easy way (other phones are probably similar, I don't know). On the Nokia, I could send out text without looking at the phone. Not so with the Helix. It requires a great deal more attention, needlessly.

I only had this phone for 24 hours and I'm returning it based on the above, but there are positive features.

PROS: The Helix is small, sleek and lightweight. Call quality was actually pretty good (poor call quality was the only major criticism that I found before I bought it). Talk time and standby time is (said to be) astronomical compared to almost any other cel phone, but I found it so difficult to use that nothing else mattered.
