Don't have experience with the Ally, but my past experiences with LG are all good. They make great phones.

I would only recommend it over the Eris because of the problems the Eris is having that have not been fixed by HTC or Verizon yet. So i wouldn't mind giving the Ally a try.

What's your situation? Are they offering you an Ally as an even swap? Did you just get your Eris?

Ok.. well if your dad can pull it off, I think the Ally might work out better for you.

Of course, i'm assuming your having the silent bug issue, and you're not just a 14 year old kid that wants a new phone....

Read the ally forums. I don't know that it would be a better switch honestly.

The two bars thing is mostly superficial (your still getting more bars than its showing, because HTC changed how it calculates reception), and if your going to the Ally for better battery life, don't be expecting a whole lot. Some people over there still report poor battery performance.

The ally doesnt have a 1ghz processor.

And your 14. so you probably text alot (stereotype, sorry) so the keyboard will probably be a plus. LG makes really nice phone. The env series.... They know their way around making keyboards.

I have had great past experiences with LG phones, but have no idea about their smart phones, the ally isn't my cup of tea and loved my Eris so that gets my recommendation.
