What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh. I've used this phone for a straight year. Here is what I think about this phone -The display is.. Average.. Its 720p and its completely fine for a 5.0 inch screen -The battery life is below average. Watching YouTube videos and scrolling through social media will take down some of the battery. Don't even think about playing games on this, as the battery will die before you know it -This phone heats up A LOT when trying to do basic tasks. The screen gets uncomfortably warm and the back gets hot. -Day to day tasks on this thing are, Good! Social media apps like YouTube, Instagram, and Snaphat, if you even have enough space left, will work fine. -The camera is below average, as well as the microphone. But its a budget phone and the camera is 5MP, so what did you expect..? -The storage on this is mediocre. Android 6.0 + Bloatware will only leave you with 2 or 1.5 GB of breathing room and pictures/videos will eat up even more storage. Best you buy an SD card for storage. Conclusion: This phone will be just fine for the average user who wants to watch YouTube videos and send text messages, or whatever the average user would want to do.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Phone is okay until the back cover broke I bought this phone 2/17, my third tracfone. I purschased because I wanted the two cameras& some of the extra features. The quality of the pics are terrible. The back of my phone chipped around the camera lense today, I called help line and was told that they do not have any back covers, that I would have to buy a new phone, or try to get it fixed. My last tracfone came with two back covers. Very disapointed with this phone. I've enjoyed owning a tracfone for 15 years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good basic phone Great for use as a phone. Iimited usable memory for apps makes it a pretty basic smartphone. The wife dropped her phone from about 3 feet and the screen shattered. The camera does not take clear pictures. The screen is very clear and sharp.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect size! About 6 months because the size interested me. I have small hands but what a phone could hold comfortably but still have a good grip. This phone fits me perfectly. The price fit nice too!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Died 4 months after activation I purchased the phone in October of 2016 and activated it in March of 2017. My phone "died" today. When I turned it on, the screen went to black vertical lines and then totally black. I thought that perhaps the battery was run down so I plugged it in. When I went back to check in about 10 minutes, the phone was too hot to touch especially in the lower left hand corner. The whole phone was very hot but that corner was extremely hot. I unplugged the phone. I have been in contact with tracfone. Their representative indicates that the phone is "dead" and that I should contact LG since the phone is less than a year old. I tried Live Chat on LG and go no response for over 15 minutes. Tracfone was much more responsive, but they don't warranty the phone, LG does. I liked the phone much better than my last LG until it died today.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great phone---for a phone I've had this for a few months. As a phone, it can't be beat. However, it has the worlds WORST camera. Blurry, out of focus. Don't even try to take a picture with it .. get a pin-hole camera instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone for the Price Bought 2 of these phones and have been using them for the past 2 months. Great phone with lots of features. Very easy to customize to your preferences. Everything comes across nice and clear. Having Android 6.01 version is a plus as well. We put these phones through some very rough daily use and still no problems at all.
