What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could have been better I actually had to take the phone back to the store the next day because it was stuck on the same notification sound and the camera light would flash every time I got a text. I tried everything to change it and it would show that the tone had changed, but would still have the same tone. I ended up resetting the phone and that solved the problem with the light flashing but not the tone.i just dealt with that.i've had various problems with this phone besides that, freezing up, saying something was on when clearly it was in the off position and vice-versa. I'm very disappointed in this phone but looks like I'm stuck with it..Sorry but you told me to be honest

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Some features are good When i first got the phone it was going good. Then a month later it started acting up. Freezing and cutting off and on by itself. the screen off memo is good.I just hate that the pixels are so low and nothing looks hd at all. And there is no screen mirroring. Other than that its ok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone, simple to use, great battery life I've had this phone for about 10 months and absolutely love it. it is so clean and simple to use but powerful. I love the battery life and how quickly it recharges as well as the screen size for better visibility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does important stuff well~! I bought this for practical purposes: - Large screen - Good battery life - Good call quality - Replaceable battery - 16 GB - 720p The stylus is a nice touch, and does come in handy at time for quick notes. If you're looking for a game toy, this might not be for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good mid-range phone, but... I really like Cricket. Great price and it works in many more places than when I was using TMobile. This actually a pretty decent phone and has a fast processor, bright and clear screen, expandable storage...Unfortunately, the update for Android 7.x hasn't been pushed out by Cricket and so the cool, new things aren't available as well as increased security. LG says Cricket has to push the update and Cricket says LG has to do it. From what I've read, Boost subscribers have already gotten the update for this phone. I guess you only get the updates if you by the flagship phones. Sad.
