So I went to MetroPCS today to purchase my LG CONNECT.
Price is $349.00 + tax with a $30.00 mail in rebate. Owner said I am the first one to buy the Connect in GA. Posted some pictures. Enjoy

I really like the size screen of the Esteem better. I had the HTC EVO and the screen was perfect. Thats the only thing I think that is a - , otherwise the Connect is a +

Ya was hoping for an OMAP, had too many phones with the Snapdragon and from experience the OMAP is far superior. Biggest thing holding back the Snapdragon S3 is the GPU.

I did notice that blinking purplish light. Heres the thing, while I was recording. I only see that light thru my camera. No light when I look directly at the phone. Thats odd right? Still cant figure how that happened.

Picked up a Connect 4G today. Its my first android phone so I have nothing to compare it against. Its very smooth though. My only complaint is that it drops my wifi during longer downloads. Haven't figured out whats the problem yet, if anyone has any ideas please PM me.

I love my new Connect, I got one this evening. The sound quality is fantastic. Now I have to try it in the car through bluetooth. I will keep you posted.

Wow that's quite a noticeable screen difference, but not to the point where it would be a deal braker

The connect is definitely more loud than my old optimus M. I don't have to crank up the volume in the car anymore. The brightness of the screen is awesome.
