    I have a Verizon Galaxy SIII but right now it's suspended because my money didn't come in earley enough to pay the bill so right now it's cut off so I need something until I get my big smart phone on. I went to walmart yesterday looking at all the cellphones thinking witch one I would like I had boost mobile so many times that I was getting tired of it and i've had at&t allot of times their service was just not that good anymore so I can across the Optimus Dynamic Straight Talk Phone and to me it looked cheap like the other slow straight talk touch phones where everytime you slide the screen it would slide really slow not fast. So when my uncle bought me this cellphone I opened it activated it and wow it was just like my Galaxy SIII with the same setting and features and everyhting but in a little verison cellphone the screen is good not that big but it's good it came with a 4G Micro SD Card so that was cool and the cameras nice so is the video I kinda like it for now it's a good phone to get like when your phone is broken or something and great for teens to have fun texting their friends taken pictures all stuff like that. I really like it right now it's a great phone.

    Super slow in stock configuration and gets slower with added apps. Phone memory is full after downloading half a dozen apps. This phone has 3 kinds of memory (phone, internal, external) and once the phone memory fills up I can't save any contacts until I move or delete an app and some apps can't be moved so my phone is officially full but that is a relief because most apps that I install never run they just crash or they can't be installed in the first place because of the outdated OS (Android 2.3) and the ones that do run take FOREVER and sometimes I'm just glad when they crash and I give up and put my phone away. How was that for a frustrated run on sentence? Anyway, the camera is terrible, one of the most distorted I've ever seen, it's actually kind of funny like a fun house camera or a fish eye, the screen is also one of the worst I've ever seen because it has very narrow viewing angle in both vertical and horizontal directions, but the sound and call reception are okay.

    My husband and I had currently been using Verizon for our cell phone service and we were paying $222 a month for two cell phones. It was getting a little ridiculous to pay for and we kept seeing commercials for straight talk, so decided to check it out. We have both been very pleased with the service. Now, to talk about this phone. I really did my homework before buying. I read all of the reviews on this website, plus watched a couple of youtube videos to check it out. I love the phone. The only complaint I have about it is that there is only a 4GB memory card in it, and after downloading 1 app (which was Facebook) I went to download yahoo mail and it said I had no memory left. So, unfortunately I will have to go buy a higher GB card for the phone. Other than that it is very easy to use, a basic smart phone, touch screen, and very light weight. I've owned 3 android phones, now this one and I will have to say I like it just as well as the android phones I paid a price for from Verizon. Oh, and too, this phone works on Verizon network.

    I purchased this phone to have a personal "non work" phone, with smart phone capabilities. While it works great with basic stuff, I find that I quickly use the memory up. There is no clear way to get all applications to the internal storage or to the beefed up SD card that I have. The screen is also small (but I'm an older user as well). Connectivity is great, access to the web is great, the tools are adequate. For the $80, and the prepaid capability, its a great value, especially if this is your first smart phone. For experienced consumer, this device is NOT so great, if you've had smart phones before, and lived your life with them for email, phone, voice mail, cameras, and apps, you might want to consider a higher priced more advanced phone. The $45 a month unlimited plan is awesome. I'm considering upgrading the device in a couple of months as soon as I get the return on investment, and perhaps giving the phone to a niece/nephew as their first phone.

    For years I was with Verizon, had a simple phone that provided just talk and text but got fed up with the only way to get a new phone was to either renew my contract or pay full price for a updated phone. Got fed up with that policy and basically paying more and getting less. So after shopping around for over a month decided to go with this straight talk phone from Wal-Mart, it has taken a little getting used to but is going along. It is easy to use and to navigate thru, the only down side is when it comes to using the keypad, as it is touch screen, the letters are kind of small for a person with large fingers, I find myself having to hit the back button a lot in order to type out the correct words, other than that it’s a good phone. Plus to get a phone like this thru a cell phone provider without having to re-new a contract and pay full price it could easily cost 200 or more and Wal-Mart sells them for 80 Bucks.

    • A. Randy is correct. When looking at Straight Talk Android phones, look at the model number on the box. If it says CDMA-V then it will run on the Verizon network (only). Also, it should show a red-colored coverage map of the U.S. on the box. if the map is blue-colored, then the phone does not run on Verizon but rather on one of Straight Talk/TracPhone/Net 10's othercontract providers such as Sprint and AT&T. (Straight Talk, TracPhone and Net 10 are all part of the same company, but the phones are not interchangeable between the company's "brands." If you are on Straight Talk, then you need a Straight Talk version of the phone, not a Net 10 version, for instance.) There IS a Straight Talk version of this phone.

    • A. From what I see when i research cell phones online I find that what seems to be the main difference is the carriers. I am in a Verizon coverage area and all logic phones come up unavailable, but dynamic is available. I made a phone call to Net 10 customer help to just see if I could get anymore info to this and when I stated my zip code the guy said "our phones will not work for you, you need a Dynamic phone" I am not stating that is the ONLY difference but my personal suggestion would be if you are on Verizon then I would definitely go dynamic. For whatever it means...this seems to be a 'cdma" version of a "Logic" phone, so cdma or dynamic is what i would look for on Verizon network. Hope this helps.
