What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Stunning Build quality has lasted very well (3 years and running strong). The 5" display is outstanding and the glass still doesn't have a single scratch and performs brilliantly. Personally 5" is the sweet spot for phone screen size. 4G, NFC, 2GB of RAM and the latest android keep this phone surprisingly current. Stock android runs like a dream. No crazy overlays ruining the experience unlike my old galaxy. Battery lasts me a full day (I'm not a power user but regularly check social media, websites and messages). Although not having this trouble myself, replacing a screen due to damage can become a nightmare. Sticky power buttons have also been an issue mentioned to me by others. Overall this phone has been a brilliant product, it will only be replaced when a true issue arises and then I would upgrade to the Nexus 5X. LG and Google have really hit the spot with this masterpiece at this price.
