I went to buy a different Android in the same price range to gift my wife; but I bought this one mainly for the extra features and technology and the fact that it looks a much lighter clone of my iPhone 4. But my wife is just not happy carrying a LG phone with her. She feels LG lacks brand value with same price handsets like Samsung. And after completing two calls lasting almost 30 minutes she complains of the phone getting too hot. Anyone else enjoying the heat on this phone ?
