Submitted by Dave Won on Sat, 06/11/2011

Review of the LG Thrive from AT&T.

When we opened this phone we were thinking because of the price this phone would have a cheap type feeling when being use, while infact we found the exact oposite, this phone is a bargan! It is load with 3G, Wifi, GPS and much mare as you can see from the specs below.

We have added video of  some games demos here Angry Birds etc..

The LG Thrive Android phone from AT&T is a real surprise for the price!

Another thing that stood out was how much stuff there was in the package (see video) probably the best presented prepaid I have ever seen, this phone is just awesome at the price of $149.99 at Frys Elecetronics. The touch pad is responsive infact the whole phone is responsive, it's a great phone. I would love to come up with some negitaves, but there isn't.
