It has a good camera but that's about it. Read all the negative comments below and multiply them by ten,that's how bad I think it is! It's easier to use with a touch screen pen, but only just! It's the most infuriating piece of technology I have ever come across. It will be stamped into the ground when I get a replacement!!
Thank god it was a gift. I'd be truly gutted if I had spent more than £2.99 on its purchase.

This is not the best phone. i have had it for less than 2 years and i am getting a new one.it is hard to text on as you have to press harder than usall to get the botton wanted.i am quite a heavy user of my phone (eg.text a lot and want to use the internet) so this phone wasnt great.the inter is teriibal .but would be good for some one wanting a phone that s not to expensive to just text and call on.the camrea is very good at 5mp but is slow to take the picture.great momory for pictures and especaly music.this phone is over all a good phone for light users

I have had this phone for a week...it has an excellent camera, so good in fact it has replaced my actual digital camera which I have since given away. The battery life isn't so hot (It has to be charged every day dependant on use), also the resistant touchscreen is often exactly that needing multiple presses before it complies. However its good points outweigh the bad...like I said the camera is top notch, the mp3 player has superb bass, it looks good and for the price (I paid £59 around $90US). My overall opinion? Well worth a shot.

Had this phone for 10 months now and has done well for me. It does everything a phone should do e.g. text, call, take photos, play music. Camera is excellent as it is 5MPX!!!! Music player is better quality than my friends phones (and some of them have BB's)Occasionally won't text some of my contacts which can be annoying. Battery life lasts about 48 hours. Calls are really clear and you can hear what the other person is saying very well. Only thing is rubbish games and none to download. On top of that internet costs alot unless it comes in your package. Qwerty keyboard is good. Wish radio could play without having to have headphones in. Overall great phone would definitely reccomend it but if you are not a fan of touchscreen then this is not for you as sometimes when you text the buttons are hard to press.
Reviewed by sydney from uk on 11th Apr 2012
This was my first touchscreen and has been a nightmare! I'm 63 and this thing isn't at all intuitive. The texting is impossible. Switching to numbers for no reason and then try to get back to letters not clear how. I finally found out that you can recalibrate touch but it still isn't as sensitive as a button on my old phone was. It'll only ring about three times before it goes to voicemail. The ring volume won't go high enough. How do you put it on speaker phone? How do you retrieve a number from contacts when you're on the phone? You have to press a million and one buttons to get to some obvious place. The instructions that come with it are crap. Using the net- you must be joking. My computer savvy friend spent hours trying to download pictures from this phone with limited or no success. I've just scratched the surface of my problems with this phone. The alarm only covers 24 hours- you can't have an alarm for weeks or months ahead. Theres things I can't do with this phone I could do with my £10 one before. And it locks constantly when you've got those press 1 if,press 2 if,etc and then you have to call up the numeric key board AGAIN! Then it locks AGAIN.

Oh my goodness. I absolutely hate it!!!. I have a pay as you go oneon O2, and it's almost impossible to top up online.
If you top up with a debit card, the phone locks long before you have time to enter your details.Each time, you have to press the unlock key before entering numbers, and by the time you are asked to put in the next detail, the damn thing has locked again.Changing the time delay for the keyboard lock makes no difference. Changing the security settings makes no difference. This is possibly the very worst mobile phone ever. A truly awful piece of technological junk. Battery life is great if you keep the phone in your pocket but pathetic if you use it more than a couple of times a day. Don't ever use the radio!! Best used as a paperweight, or perhaps for throwing at the cat.

Reviewed by PAUL from UK on 1st Apr 2012
Bought this phone 7 months ago, from ASDA overall a good phone, the most annoying thing about it for me is, when i put the phone into my pocket, or a phone case, the screen goes into call mode.. i have lost over £10 in airtime. because the phone has dialled random numbers.. using the screen lock is a night-mare, cannot find a decent phone case which stops the sensitive screen from leaving the desktop... the back of the phone does come loose. and the battery life is about 3 days..
hope all future phones are not as annoying with the screen..
Reviewed by Jess from England on 24th Mar 2012
this is a rubbish phone. I bought it and within a year it had frozen more than 50 times!!! The touchscreen is completely inrepsonsive therefore making texting an almost impossible chore!!! I dread having to text and email on this phone as it is so hard! Don't waste your time buying it.

I now know why this phone comes with a year warranty. My 18 month old phone is now struggling to recharge itself even with a new battery. Back case falls off easily and build quality is not very good. I suppose that is why they are cheapish. Poor phone and service from the supermarket chain whom I have contract with has been inconsistent.

My husband and I have both had this phone for 17 months now on the same 2yr contract. We both thing its a great phone and use them all the time for various things and have found it a very easy phone to use and never encountered any problems with the screen or any of the features. There is only one thing my husband is now finding wrong with the phone these last couple of months and that is that the battery life has really short, where as mine still seems fine and only need to charge it every few days. I would definately have another LG but my husband has now gone off them cos he's fed up with battery dieing on him.

Had this phone 18 months now on contract and have never really grown to love it.. it was my 1st touch-screen and I have found it quite hard to use. It's currently in for repair as the touchscreen has seized up altogether.
Camera is good but at 5 megapixels, there are plenty of others that have caught up with it.
Would agree with previous comments about the short battery life and very slow internet/facebook etc. Don't get this phone if going online is important to you!

I do not reccomend this phone - the battery life is unbelievably poor - it lasts about two days at most. The back of the phone falls off very easily and that has been a really big irritation as you hardly have to touch it and it drops off - the back cover of mine is now lost.
Textong is slow and arduous task - the touch screen is not very responsive - it is quicker and easier to use my husband's £9.99 teco nokia. Internet is slow.......
It is good for photos and that is the only positive thing about this phone, although taking photos with it drains the battery life in seconds.
My husband is annoyed that i bought it, I'm annoyed that I bought it. Bad phone, steer clear
Reviewed by rose from suffolk on 29th Jan 2012
It's everything you'd expect from a £60.00 phone. The camera and the video is good and it allows you to do the basic features like texting ect. However, the facebook and twitter apps take ages to load and i found the touch screen wasn't very responsive compared to my friend's phones of the same money. Overall, the phone has a very stylish, modern look to it and it's perfect for somebody who wants to stay in fashion with touch screen phones. However, if i could choose again, i would've waited, saved up and got a htc as they are much faster and provide better social networking devices.

first of all, I only have a mobile for occasional use/emergencies so I dont use it that often, BUT he thing that really bugs me about this phone is the way it insists on locking after about 10 seconds, even though I have the lock set to 'off'. When I ring anywhere where I get a menu to choose from, it locks so I can't press the option I want. Also, if you take a video it will not play unless you change it to portrait view. I would not recommend this phone to anyone

I don't know why people are moaning about this phone. For £60 this is a fantastic phone, if you want a full on smartphone then pay the extra £100+ and get one. I find the battery life excellent, I only have to recharge it every few days, and the music player and camera are great. I've got a 4 Gig memory card in it which allows me to use it like a memory stick and even though it can't open certain types of file itself, it still saves them and when transferred to a PC the files are fine. People seem to expect too much from lower priced phones and if they're that bothered by 'friends' making fun of them, then pay more money and get a phone that they can show off. This phone is a bargain and I would recommend it to anyone who just wants a good phone with a good camera and music player.

I've had this phone for a few months now. At first I was disappointed, but I've really grown to like it. Good, big screen to view pictures, easy texting and always a good, clear signal when phoning. Lots of apps on it too. I've read a couple of reviewers on here saying they can't send or receive pictures.....well it does !! You have to contact your provider ( T-Mobile or whatever ) and they will help you set the phone up for picture messaging ( MMS ). Gave it 4 stars as it's not a miracle phone ( no GPS ) but a really good phone for the money.

I have this phone on a £10 a month contract from tmobile. I get 100 minutes, unlimited texts, unlimited internet and a free phone. I got it christmas 2010 so it is now 8 months old and I am looking into getting a new phone not because the LG Viewty Snap is bad (it's actually quite good) but because it doesnt match my needs. The battery is EXCELLENT, it lasts 2-3 days of constant texting, Internet searches but not much calling. It has quite slow Internet and I need 3G and Wifi so that's annoying it doesn't have them. The camera is pretty good (that was the main selling point for me) BUT takes a g e s to load and another couple of seconds to take a photo (usually to photo opportunity has gone by them). I don't know why others have had a problem sending/recieving picture/MMS messages I sucessfully send and receive several picture messages a day never had any problems. The email widget doesn't work so you have to do it in browser. The (resistive) touch screen is not very good you have to calibrate it often. You get what you are paying for with this phone it's not bad it's just not got the features I need. So I am forking out for either a HTC Desire S or a HTC Chacha which I can shove my contract sim in because I need 3G, I need email and I need APPS! Yeah, and a good touchscreen. Don't let me put you off this phone; it does what it says on the tin perfectly without fault so 4 stars.

EXTREMELY SLOW CAMERA!!! ONE DAY BATTERY LIFE!!! I needed a new phone and wanted one with a decent camera. The viewty snap boasts a 5 megapixel camera so thats what I bought. The battery lasts on average about one day and thats simply recieving and sending about half a dozen texts per day. The camera is a complete joke as there is a THREE SECOND DELAY from when you press the button to the picture actualy being taken. I have dozens of pictures of the back of my grandsons head because of the time taken to actualy take the picture. Movies - dont even bother because anything that moves is recorded as a blur. Very very dissapointed. I wont be buying LG's anymore.

If you are phone user who likes your phone to work and respond quickly, I'd look elsewhere. The touchscreen is pretty slow and the phones ability to go through the motions are also...slow. The touchscreen is quite poor with fingers but if you use a pointed object is a lot better. This makes texting slow and wuite difficult unless you select the keyboard but this is also slow and slmost inpossible to use with your fingers. Despite the negatives above. On the plus side. If you are not a rapid user or texter and want a relativerly cheap phone you could do worse. It is yet to crash on me in 6 months and has proved very durable. I work in construction and my phones do not last long AT ALL!! Bit this has lived in my pocket with my keys and the screen and case are still in very good condition. It is quite a stylish phone as well and the best thing is the battery. I make a lot of calls during a day and I only charge it every 2 or 3 days and I never let it go below 2 bars. That said, it drops of quickly once the bars start dropping but I think it is a very good battery life. In conclusion, you largely get what you pay for. If you are a heavy phone user who flicks through things quickly, I'd give is a miss. If you are a bit of a 'plodder', I'd consider it for sure.
