Pro: It's a brill phone touch screen, stylish, apple didn't think about the stylus nor other phone companies. It's great. Con: It's not everones cup of coffe as the sound quality slightly lacks. Using experience: 1 days I'm only 11 a young girl from England and I think it's great I don't actually have an LG cookie but for under £100 it's a bargain(£97.95 from most stores on pay as you go) I want one so much. I really do insist you buy one they sound great on YouTube, no matter what the faults are, you've got to have respect for such a cheap touch phone Less
