Sprint Product Ambassador: LG5 - First Week - Getting to Know You

Sprint Product Ambassador

So I realized, I have never had a LG device before. I've had HTC's, Samsung's, Motorola's, iPhones but never LG. When I turned on the phone, right away the new set up menu kind of confused me. So I waited until the weekend when I had time to set it up.

However, Android thankfully is Android for at least setting up a phone for this non tech girl. Basic things like setting up email, getting the right applications for the things I do with my phone and getting the alarm set so I can wake up in time in the morning did not take long to figure out.

The LG5 has a TON of cool new features: The camera and removable battery are things I am looking forward to learning more about. But here are some first impressions:

  • It's Easy to Get to Know: I didn't google anything on how to set up. People, that is huge for me. The applications that came preloaded made things easy. I kind of liked the pre-loaded folders of Google (for all things Google ? see picture) and Tools (included File Manager, Weather, Calculator, Voice Recorder, Downloads, Music, Music, Tasks, Settings and Clock).
  • Size Matters: It is a larger phone than usual for me (I like to carry in my back pocket). It is 5.88" X 2.91" X 0.30", and I have the Spigen case too so it just barely fits. But that is something that was not a dealbreaker. Without the case it is smaller of course, but you know me ? I need a case!
  • It's Fast: The Fast charger is amazing - seriously. I'll do some proper tests along the way to see how quickly that charges up, but I really think it charges quicker than any other phone I've had.  I am also looking forward to seeing how the removable battery helps things. I haven't had one of those in years!

I am looking forward to getting to know this phone and all of the additional features over the next month or so. I want to get the camera for it - love taking pictures of my kids, and videos too of music. I am open to suggestions too, so if there are things you want to know let me know!
