- The phone is compact with dimensions of 1.85″ x 3.42″ x 0.78″ and weighs only 2.51 ounces with battery installed making it a feather light phone, a trademark of LG phones.
- The phone has all the usual features like call waiting, caller ID and voicemail.

- The LED on top of phone gives a lot of status information like roaming, message and incoming call.
- It has some good games, screensavers and wallpapers.
- You also get 16 polyphonic ringtones in the phone.
In spite of all these features, the phone also has some dampeners like:-
- It does not allow you to buy additional graphics or ringtones.
- The sound quality is not very good.
- There is no option of removing the airtime balance and due date from the screen.
- Network reception is not very sturdy with towers fluctuating from 5 to 0.
- It does not offer Bluetooth technology or camera.
In our view, this is not a very good option from LG if see price point scenario of market. The LG 300G phone which is cheaper than LG 400G offers some of the features not offered by this phone. For a few dollars extra, you can buy the LG 600G camera phone which also offers Bluetooth technology. In effect you can shoot pictures and send them over to your friends. It also has bigger phonebook.
In spite of all these short comings, LG 400G is a simple to use phone without any additional hassles.
