Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Quality, No Support from LG I bought this phone a little over a year ago, and on Saturday it crashed and would not restart. Plugging the phone in did nothing, and I wasn't even able to get it to do a hard reboot because it would not respond to any commands, plugged in or not. I contacted LG and they told me tough luck, because my warranty expired in November. They knew exactly what my problem was even though I gave them the briefest of descriptions, so I know that this is a recurring problem that they are already aware of. If a company can't stand behind its products and fix the problems they are at fault for, that is unacceptable. I will not buy another LG phone because one would expect their phone to last longer than one year and at the very least, the company should replace the phone when it doesn't.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dead at 15 months My husband and I both purchased this phone and both of our phones were dead around the 15 month mark. Totally, completely dead. We hadn't dropped them, got them wet, or even cracked the screen. I wouldn't recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone, Works seamlessly with my Chromebook! Excellent Phone, working seamlessly with My Chromebook, Happy with everything APART from the battery being not so great, BUT on the flip side it charges in about an hour and in this day and age of portable charging devices is this really the biggest problem! Also I think I'm correct in thinking that you can charge it at anytime without any detriment to the battery. I got a Lovely case which actually makes it look better and heavier as it is a little on the light side!
