    Exactly what the title says, is it a good phone?

    IMHO: No.
    It's got a nasty UI, and the people I know that've had them hated them, and they br{ea|o}ke really easily.

    If you must have an LG phone, then the Optimus One not the original Optimus because that was hideous and ran an outdated version of Android with a resistive touch screen.

    It's pretty cheap, runs Froyo and has a decent feature set.

    I've got a LG Optimus GT540, running 2.2 and no problems so far and it's a pretty good phone.
    (There is an official 2.1 update, if you didn't know (2.2 isn't official))

    Stay away from LG Cookies though, I fucking hated my LG Cookie.

    Hmm, seems to be all bad from what I'm reading, but, here's another question: Is it an upgrade or a downgrade to a Nokia N95 8GB?

    Ignore the 8GB fact because I have sdhc cards that will be for all my music, etc.

    By upgrade or downgrade, I mean, whether it is better than that (upgrade) or worse than that (downgrade).

    The 290 I gave my grandparents for christmas just died because air humidity condensed inside and shorted the battery. Stay far away from that piece of shit!

    Long term isn't worry-some to me atm because my n95 is fucked that it restarts itself continually and you have to take the battery out to stop it, then you have to wait a few hours, put battery back in, then the phone will work for an hour then someone presses the repeat button because that process doesn't stop -_-

    It's a downgrade. Seriously, the cookie sucks. You can get a much better phone for that price. Don't go LG if you don't have to.
    what's your budget? And if it's an option, just send your Nokia for repairs.
