LG Optimus V Review [On the Go Android!]

Before we begin, let me direct you back to a review I conducted some months ago on a very similar telephone by the name of LG Optimus U.

This is the kind of phone you find while you're shopping for a new phone on a carrier you trust. Who would buy such a phone? What uses are there for such a phone as this? Would I use this phone?

LG Optimus V Valentines Root

The lovers phone, LG Optimus V, the one we'll be getting our hands on very soon indeed, has already received its own root job. This phone is a Virgin Mobile exclusive, is the latest phone in the mid-tier Optimus family, and is apparently very easy to hack into. The method used to root this device is the same one that's worked on previous Optimus machines, notably the Optimus One and Sprint's Optimus S. That method is SuperOneClick.

Samsung Intercept coming to Virgin Mobile
