Rated 2 out of 5 by from Happy to have a phone. ..... I have an issue with the keyboard closing when it so chooses, also, I have the message box that pops up on my screen when I get a text (because I like it) but sometimes much like the keyboard it likes to close while I'm typing and then I have to go into my inbox and retype what I was before it abruptly closed on me.. extremely annoying, also not happy with the boost zone reinstalling on its own, i pressed stop, also uninstalled updates but it dose it's own thing, and before i kept getting 'Boost Zone has stopped' messages and i was like wtf, then i just decided to stop it and it reinstalled it's things and now it gives me the messages again.... now, if there was something you could do to make it better, is compensate for the factory apps, you need to run the phone and it's features. honestly, i have to delete most of them because i don't use them, and also with them i could only download like two apps and it would say low on space.. idk i wish i had the money to try the volt 2 because i would like to see if it's any better then the first one. other then the complaints i have voiced it is a very sturdy phone, cant tell you how many times it's been dropped. and before i hear it, yes the phone had problems with it before i ever dropped it. :) I'm in the air about if i would recommend this phone or not. i would but then again i wouldn't.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problem phone I have had this phone for about a year.I worked well for the first few months. For the last few months I have had a problem with the phone shutting itself off and turning on even in the midst of use. I get a message it seems every few days of a system update downloaded. If I don't install the update, I am unable to access wifi even in my own home. If I do I have more issues with the phone shutting off and freezing.The screen acts strange for about a day after this also. I just did an update 3 days ago and just had another one pop up. Now I am getting messages that various apps such as messaging, settings, gmail, etc. have stopped even in the midst of using these apps. It is really annoying as it takes more than one try to get rid of the pop up so I can use the phone. I would not buy this phone unless you only plan to use it for a few months

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I can't even... Don't buy this phone, just don't. I got this phone because it had great reviews, but clearly I have missed some amazing feature like a tequile dispenser. It's slow, and the keyboards don't work. Not matter what I do my keyboards just randomly close out. Most of my basic apps (Facebook) don't work, and it likes to call my old boss sometimes. Owning this phone is like having to take care of your crazy drunk friend. Sometimes I let it fall because if it breaks I have a reason to get a different one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great features I bought this a month ago and I'm glad I did. I use this phone on freedom pop for emergencies otherwise it's my MP3 player with a 32 gig card. Features are great but being in a remote area reception in sketchy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Limitations Decent processor but hobbled by limited memory, bloatware and restrictions. LG has positioned this phone as a limited phone in their product line with a descending price point to end of production which at which it is nearly there. It could have been a great deal, but LG went out of their way to put this product well below the flagship phone. This is a good example of marketing defining features and engineering. Be sure to compare this phone with other mid-range smartphones in the Android Kit Kat zone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorilla Glass...Really??? Overall, the LG Volt is a GREAT phone for the price, I LOVE it!!! I plan to trade in my Volt for the Volt 2. Before purchasing the LG Volt for myself, my wife and I went shopping for phones together. She bought the Volt and I bought the HTC Desire 510. Within a couple of days, I had become frustrated withe the HTC Desire, and was not happy with the fact that it did not have a camera flash. After comparing my HTC Desire to my wife's Volt, her showing me features (the built in Quick remote control app really sold me), and me watching how efficiently she used it, I went and traded in my HTC Desire 510 for the LG Volt. My only issue with this phone, is the so-called, Gorilla Glass. I remember watching a demonstration by the one and only, Penn & Teller, proving the durability of the Gorilla Glass by performing stress tests on the glass, which it stood up to. Looks good on TV, but in real life, just 2 days after purchasing my Volt, I was sitting in a chair on a paved surface, the phone fell from my lap, face down on the pavement, causing multiple cracks on the top 1/4 part of the glass. Months later, picking my son up from school, walking with the phone in my hand, my hand brushed up against my leg, knocking the phone from my hand, to the pavement. The phone landed on the bottom left corner of the phone, not only cracking the glass from the bottom up to where the first cracks were, as well as the bottom remainder of the undamaged glass, the glass actually chipped into small shards, causing a sort of divit in the glass. Is Gorilla Glass supposed to do that??? Thank God I purchase my phones at Best Buy and get the 2 year insurance plan, which allows me to return the phone for full retail value, towards the purchase of a new phone. LG Volt 2, here I come!!!
