This phone has a very attractive form factor for me. And one of the few phones now that has actual buttons (other than the Ally and the Droid X).

I'd love to have a good reivew of it from the veterans, to see what they think. I'm surprised NOBODY is talking about this at all.

Thank you strawbearlyjamm, I feel the same way! I am dying to know what people think about this phone. I really want to know about the battery life. I just bought the HTC Incredible and the battery is horrid. I'm actually thinking about returning it for the LG Vortex, but I really want a good review before I do that. Unfortunately I only have till Wednesday to decide. Someone...Anyone...

As far as the incredible battery life goes, install a task killer and open it up and change the autokill setting to aggressive. My battery last 13+ hours now, with widgets running too.

We aren't impressed by the screen clarity on the vortex. Other than that, I like the form factor (could be a little thinner, almost looks like it should be a slider). Should sell as an entry level Droid.

Why is this thread in the Samsung/Galaxy S subforum?

I'm not thrilled by the fact that the Vortex has Bing search and Bing maps instead of the Google versions.

On the other hand, it does have Froyo.
