  1. I don’t understand why they made these? The mytouch of last year was better??

  2. unless these things are free the mytouch 4g and mytouch 4g slide own these stupid toys.

  3. I wouldn’t trust an LG product anyway. These phones are no better than the mytouch 4g, I guess the only way it could improve is if it’s running hspa+42. But then again with that processor it probably can’t keep up!

    1. Probably just the same processor as the Mytouch 4g, which really isn’t that great either.

  4. They should perform about the same as the Mytouch 4g, and knowing LG they may have a marginally better screen. They oughta be plenty cheap but…isn’t the Mytouch 4g like $50? I’m not seeing much of a point to the keyboardless model.

  5. these are not worthy of the mytouch name ..mytouch are usually powerhouses and these r toys
    plus without the bubly sense it really dnt look like a mytouch

  6. low cost optiin. stop hating.

  7. Tmo needs to drop the whole mytouch thing. Label phones for what they are, HTC, LG, Samsung.

  8. The thing that made the MyTouches good was HTC.
