Rated 1 out of 5 by from GARBAGE My wife and I have these phones and we both hate them. nothing but problems, wont charge half the time, battery fails, fragile screen, apps get corrupted, thankfully after much aggravation it is going away!! (I really wanted to take them to the shooting range, but the wife wont let me!!!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stable after 2 years of use! Like the title says I have had this phone for over two years now and really can't complain about anything. This is also the first phone to ever make it this long without some kind of major malfunction under my rough use. I always had it in a case (cheap ebay cases) but even as many times as I've dropped it I have never had a problem or broken screen. It's still plenty fast and has only locked up one time about a year ago when I was trying to load an app that was apparently messed up. It still charges just as fast as it always has and performance is only slightly slower than when I first got it. Still plenty fast enough that I don't really notice it. I just recently upgraded to a new galaxy note 5 only because it was a buy one get one free deal when I got a new phone for my wife. I really didn't want to upgrade since I still love my LG phone but seemed crazy not to take advantage of the new deal. My new phone is a little nicer and faster but not mind blowing in comparison to my now 2 year old LG. To me that shows how amazing this phone was for it's time and it's still hard to beat!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Totally let down by kitkat upgrade I have always been a loyal customer, used many lg android phones but ever since i upgraded my phone it became very slow to the point that i get very frustrated using it, dont know if this only happened to me or is a common fail on this phone Sincerely Josue garcia

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No better phone out there so far.. Having iPhone in the past was good, until bigger screens came out and i jumped on this monster back in the day and cant say much bad about it. I went with LG instead of Samsung because of the HOME button which is awesome instead of those 4 FIXED buttons at that time that you cannot change!! This phone is fast, stable if rooted and cleaned, has great IR support, great camera (front cam is useless imo) and best of all, it has expandable MicroSD card slot!!! I just compared this phone to Samsung S6 edge+ and iPhone 6 Plus and none have MicroSD card slots which is not good if you record a lot of media; that translates to excessive computer-to-phone hook up. Not much else to say except its a very good phone with cheap replacement parts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from i just bought this phone from someone and they said something was wrong with the battery. So i ordered a new one and it have not came in yet.. so far i love the phone and its size is perfect because i hate small phones anyway the phone is great so far just waiting on my new battery.. Hopefully i will like the rest of the phone because i never use lg products before i have read reviews some good and some bad.. Overall i like it will be back for another review later on when i go check to see if my battery came in :0
