For a basic phone, the lg fusic is an excellent cell phone. smartphones are all the rage these days but the lg fusic is good for everything else. the screen is beautiful and the external screen is extremely useful for getting the current time. the wallpapers are extremely easy to put up and the camera is quite average for its size. however, the flash is very weak, but makes for a very good flashlight. battery life is better than average as it is not a smartphone. the phone is also pretty sturdy, it can definitely survive more than a few bumps and drops on concrete streets. the music player is absolutely excellent. there is a music visualizer and it is very easy to load up music into the microSD card from your computer and it will play easily on the phone (mp3). you can even control the music player without opening the phone because of the external controls. however, the phone will only take 2.5mm headsets.
