One word...AWESOME. I have owned the Samsung 3500 and the Sanyo 6000 (excellent phone). Vision phones I have tried include the Sanyo 4900 (great for a bar phone) and the Samsung N400 (very poor phone). The LG 5350 is simply the greatest phone I have ever owned. Here are some things I really like about the phone if you are considering buying one: 1) Feel. The feel of this phone in your hand and while in use is excellent. 2) Reception. Very strong and holds steady. 3) Screen. Brighter than the Sanyo 4900 and N400. Not as good as the tft display on the Samsung A500. 4) Battery. Superb life for a color screen. Blows away the Samsung. 5) Tone options. The best I have ever seen. LG put a lot of thought into this. You will never get bored. 6) Setip options. Again, LG tops them all. After reviewing all of the new Vision phones, the LG 5350 gets the highest rating. It's one of those phones that you will keep for a long time. Style is also excellent. While I received much attention for Sanyo 6000, the LG holds its own. A very unique phone. Do not, and I must repeat, do not purchase the Samsung vision phones. Just wanted to share my experiences with you.
