What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Paperweight and Heating Pad! My parents got me this phone as my first smartphone that wasn't used previously, and I encountered issues on day one. For me, I can't use Google Voice or the Search Bar on the home page, or I'll constantly get a 'Google Voice has stopped working' every 2-7 seconds until I turn it off, and it'll magically turn Google Voice back on, and I use this to talk to my friends a LOT, so this is very inconvienent. The storage on here is absolutely atrocious. My previous phone, one of those white, older LGs that you have to purchase off of eBay and can only use older versions of apps on, had more space,and 75% of it wasn't sucked up for apps I'd never use, like Google Books. I've moved any app over to my 16GB SD Card as possible, and I still have to clear or move stuff daily so I don't run out of space. I also have issues with the touchscreen. I use Tumblr a lot, and I tend to have problems with the back button. It won't register that I pressed that little U-Turn looking button, or I'll just be scrolling and it'll register that I wanted to download or share a picture. Camera quality is also an eyesore. At night, I keep a lamp on so I can see where I'm going, and when I look in the front facing camera, it can't show any more than the glint off of my glasses. My phone also tends to freeze or overheat a lot. It constantly remains hotter than my hands, which makes for a great heater in the winter, or when I'm in pain. But it's a nice looking phone, so there's that. For the most part, it's only good for when you're in absolute need for a phone, and don't want to shell out the money for a good one. Or if you need a nice looking paperweight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would make a great hockey puck I've owned this phone since April 2015 and i've hated it since day one. Absolutely mediocre storage, loads of useless apps, and pathetic battery life. For some senior citizen, it would work perfect. Otherwise, buy something better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awesome in every way but Memory.... I have tried to deal with this issue for over a year. The phone has 1g internal memory and 75% of it is used by the system and it does not acknowledge my 32gb sd card as additional storage. I am in a constant battle with my phone to install even small 3 mb apps, even though it claims there is 186 mb free, Im still left with having to uninstall one app to download another. The only apps I have on my phone at the moment : Pandora, Instagram, chrome and youtube, and it still gives me issues about Insufficient space.............

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent phone. I bought this phone for myself after my old phone broke. I do lots of picture editing and Instagraming so I do wish there was a lot more internal memory. I've dropped it a million times without the case on and there is just a few scuff marks. The phone does sometimes freeze and over heats but if you are looking for a phone just to browse facebook and play a few games, this could be the phone for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good phone, great voice to text. The LG-F6 is a good phone. It has a great voice to text recognition. You don't have to train your voice, or repeat your message over and over again. It has a nice camera and video recorder. Not great but good enough. Whats great about this phone is that it has a Quick Translator that can translate foreign words to English. It's a 4G phone with all the whistles.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The phone should be recalled by LG that is how bad The phone should be recalled by LG that is how bad it is. I had an LG phone without the same issues this one has with memory. Total waste of time and money. I am very disappointed that LG would even consider selling this. An entire subculture exists on the net to try and fix these issues and the hours people waste hoping against hope are probably in the millions.
