What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Phone Is the best phone i have owned I've had my LG 3 for about a year and half and it beats everything before and after hands down. The only reason it don't have phone service anymore is cricket wireless don't care about the customer. I own phone but they got it where I can't change my phone to other services. I love this phone and highly recommend it. If anyone has any suggestions for how to use it with Verizon wireless I would appreciate the help. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this phone I've had this phone for nearly a year ago. I have dropped it multiple times and the screen hasn't broke. I've dropped it in water, still works as it did the day I got it. I totally recommend this phone to all my friends!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fix it already! I'd like this phone if it wasn't for two things. 1. THE VOLUME!!! There are whole forums about this and you guys ignore the issue and it's kind of big. I'd like to be able to plug my phone into my speakers and turn the volume up. Its sooo quiet, it sounds terrible, i work at an animal shelter and have some pretty loud speakers but can't hear music even with the volume on max over the cats in the room. I rarely even touch headphones. The other thing is the swipe text is awful. Some of the words it comes up with are interesting to say the least. It does however have decent other features.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst phone I've never had a phone fail as much as this one does. Complete waste of money and an incredibly huge disappointment! Hate it!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor performance I bought my phone 5 months ago. The camera takes bad, unclear pictures. The battery lasts less than 3 months. The only good thing is it was cheaper than other LG phones and I was on a limited budget. Get what you pay for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall great phone Bought this phone in 2016 and it still works just fine. LG phones is my preferred product and has been since 2008. Unfortunately this time i had to downgrade due hardship so my little one uses this one for gaming and youtube. I still have one LG android i purchased in 2010. Works fine comes in handy for company to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Okay Phone Great starter phone, amazing display, and decent camera. My main issue on the phone is the microphone. It doesn't record at real volume. If something is loud, it lowers the volume automatically, making it sound distorted. Another issue would be that this phone's camera is terrible in low light.
