OK budget handset, poor quality finish,
This review is from: LG E460 Optimus L5II 4-inch Sim Free Android Smartphone - UK Version - Black (Electronics)
This is an OK handset, it's fairly nippy, does everything you need it to do and has a nice additional feature in the form of a quick note. Just press the button on the side and you can write on the screen. Nice idea, not too such how much I'd use it in practice, but good to see LG offering something a little extra at this price.
I wasn't too impressed with the finish of the handset, it feels very cheap and just isn't as nice in the handset as something like the Sony Xperia E SIM-free Android Smartphone - Black or the Sony Xperia Go Sim Free Mobile Phone - Black.
Before purchasing I'd check out one of these in store if you can to see if you're OK with the feel of it. Int he video I mention that the screen isn't very nice to use, this has improved with further use but it wasn't a great out of box experience. Unless you're 100% in love with this phone I'd check out the two Sony handsets above and also these Nokia handset before making a final decision:
Nokia Lumia 620 Sim-Free Windows Smartphone - Black
Nokia Lumia 520, 8Gb, Sim Free Windows Smartphone - Black

Thanks for the positive feedback. I started reviewing on Amazon this year mainly because it's mostly only written reviews, I personally find them useful but like to see someone with the product in their hands.
Thumbs up tells me people agree so I'll keep doing more video reviews :-D

Thanks for your review. As soon as you mentioned Xperia Go my mind was made up not to buy the LG! My current phone is Go and I like it but it's been playing up hence why I'm looking for a new phone. Wish there was a way to subscribe to reviewers!

Thanks for the positive feedback, glad I could help! Although you can't subscribe on Amazon, I do post reviews on my website (my username) and have the usual Facebook/Twitter/Google+ follow ability, so if you want to keep up to date with my reviews feel free to follow me on them.
I believe the Xperia Go is going end of life soon, you might be able to pick up a replacement for a clear out price in the coming months. The LG screen is bigger and it's a nice handset, but it doesn't feel as solid as the Go and lacks the water proofiing I'm sure you've found invaluable if you've ever accidentally dropped it in a puddle!
