Overall, It's a great phone for the price. I like this e quick button feature. I set the camera as the quick button feature to get a picture of my kids when they do unpredictable things. I like all of the extra features. They only fall back is that there is not enough eternal storage on the phone. Which makes it difficult to download large games. But I have had it for 6 months now and that's pretty long in phone years.

Texts Dropping, No Memory
I have owned this phone for four months. I am finding out that several of the texts that were sent to me are not reaching me, and some of the recipients of my texts are not receiving my messages either. There is no memory. I can't even receive a voice mail. I have cleared all of my texts, voice mails, and apps. Even though I cannot use any of the features that this phone will not support, the battery drains incredibly fast. I will not purchase a smart phone at a "good value" ever again. LG, you have successfully disappointed me enough to never purchase another of your smart phones.

Great example of value vs price. Does all you NEED a smart phone to do and almost without exception (quick remote ) does it well.
Call quality is amazing with a good signal. Processing power is great. Storage capacity with a cheap SD card is adequate for reasonable expectations. In 2 weeks hasn't crashed, only a few momentary hangs.
Shocked to find, despite the F6 having the same jellybean version as my L9 it's an upgrade for (L9 working great but 200 mhz, dedicated quickmemo button (or whatever you want to configure it to) and enhanced cameras (although the L9's are adequate) was enough but the F6 can move some apps to SD. Not all that appmonster says it can but enough to make memory desires much easier to deal with.Memory is more limited than I would like but given the price point not bad but being able to move apps to SD makes this an amazing value. Add appmonster to archive on the phone the apps you rarely use but might want when wifi or mobile data might be limited and I can't see how anyone with reasonable needs would run out of memory. For example I rarely go to the movies but when I do, I find runpee to be helpful. But it's a huge app, so I archive to my SD via appmonster and it's there on those rare occasions I need it, more quickly than most downloads would accomplish.
The IR blaster (quick remote) is a big disappointment. Take up space in memory on a phone with limited storage to handle only 10 manufacturers leaving out one of the largest in the US market is a mistake In My Humble Opinion. I'm sure with best buy's reach that insignia/dynex are as large a component of the market as panasonic, vizio and phillips. Probably bigger than panasonic and phillips combined. Same with cable boxes, all sorts included but Tivo is not included. Can't include everything but for me it's wasted memory. Would make more sense to make the firmware for the remote a downloadable app and charge a reasonable fee for the update.
Camera is amazing fast, focus is great is almost instant. Tap the shutter button and the pic is taken. Not seeing the HDR or quickvue options but maybe I should read the owners manual. It's on the agenda, but those are nice add ons, not necessities.
It did update immediately when I fired it up for the first time. This being feb 2014 the complaints I've seen on this phone may be due to earlier firmware and been addressed. I'm hoping another update or 2 may be coming but for the next 2 years or so, I can live with it as it is.
Overall it makes much more sense to me to buy a bargain phone with features that cover the basics well and beyond than to spend big $$ on a superphone that will have only few more features but will be that much more of a loss if lost or stolen or broken. The F6 far exceeds my expectations (and needs) at this price point.
