Thumbs up

Just picked mine up. Like you, I haven't had time to fully explore it yet. But, so far, I'm pleased with the call quality - noticeably better than the Optimus M+ I upgraded from.

I will be coming from the OM+ as well. I'm waiting for my tax refund so I can get mine. I really can't wait to get mine.

Does the phone come with Swype, in addition to the Android keyboard?

The standard LG keyboard looks to be it.

Thanks for the reminder. I have the link in an email somewhere. I had gotten it when I had my Optimus M, and wanted to upgrade the version of Swype, that came on it, since it was really far behind.

How's the screen res. on the Spirit?

Also, the best keyboard app I have found is "Smart Keyboard Plus"

They have a Trial version you can check out and I think the full version is $1.99 but well worth it.

It has several keyboard styles such as iPhone, Android, Jellybean, Gingerbread, Galaxy, HTC, etc... and an option to get more Skins/Styles.

You can also resize the keys and customize the keyboard.

Best keyboard app IMO

Doesn't the Spirit come with the same initial screen "protector" the Motion does? Mines been on my Motion a month now and it's still just fine. I Did however snip off most all the little removal tab so I wouldn't catch it on stuff and inadvertently lift it.

I am guessing these style ones have the "adhesive" on the back of them Vs using the water solution like comes with the Zagg shields. I was not able to make my Zagg instashield apply cleanly.

Are the "pre-glued" protectors Just Like the initial clear ones that come on the Motion available somewhere else? Linkee please?

NFC is not listed on lg site, so I would say it doesn't. Closest thing would be file share which it does have.

Another question; my sister-in-law has the Motion, and it has the capability of using On Screen Phone. Can the Spirit use this? If so, where do we get the latest version of it, and how to use it? I'm sure I could Google it, but I don't want to down load it from just some place. I tried a quick search of LG's site, but really didn't find anything on it.

I got it 3 days ago. It's cool. I do sincerely miss my Esteem. I had gotten used to the bulkiness of the Esteem, made me feel more manly and I didn't have to be as careful. Other than that, the Spirit is 10x as fast, screen's a little bigger and I get ICS! Such a great deal for half the price of the Esteem/Connect/SG3.

I love the phone and I can finally play Shadow Gun (a 3rd person shooter that strongly favors my favorite game series; Gears of War!).

No complaints. And the battery life! Oh emm gee! lol

The iPhone 5 does not have gorilla glass. It's not listed anywhere on their site under specs, and if you do a search on their site for gorilla glass it comes up empty.
Apple - iPhone 5 - View all the technical specifications.

It's said that apple uses their own glass which they claim is stronger than gorilla glass (doubt that).

You can google this subject all you want, but all you'll get is speculations.

Now enough talk about apple. Sheeesh

I agree with ya there. Although, didn't the Esteem have a dock as well? How much was it? Also, I plan on getting a case for my Spirit, and that would mean I'd have to take it off to put it on the dock. A case is more important to me; gotta protect it if I accidentally drop it.

I noticed on one of the Fleabay ads for a Spirit case last night that it said, "compatible with the ZTE Avid". I wonder if the reverse is true too?

As far as I can tell, there are only 2 basic designs out now for the Spirit. I really like the 2 piece hybrid cases and there isn't one for the Spirit yet. There is one that's Says hybrid but it also says 2 pieces, a top and bottom, which doesn't sound like the real 2 piece hybrid cases.

IF the Avid cases fit the Spirit and vicee versey...

Yes i have the dock for the Esteem, I'm not sure how much it is now, but when i first got the Esteem the dock was 30 bucks.

LOL to lazy to take the case off to put it in the dock? Joking.

The Spirit is built pretty solid for being a thin phone, I think it can take a beating.

Thanks. I didn't know it was only $30. Did that include a spare battery? According to the Metro Web site the Spirit dock includes a spare battery.

LG Spirit 4G
Current Rating:
Rate this Phone:

The LG Spirit is a mid-end device with a bit of a stronger punch. The device doesn't do bad with a 4.5-inch screen, Android 4.0 and a 1.2 GHz processor. All for $200 after a $70 mail-in rebate (no contract) from Metro PCS. Not a bad deal if you... Read More
