What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Expected better from LG This phone was disappointing. Please read the various reviews and head the warnings. I've had this phone since June 2015 and in the last 3 months I've had nothing but problems with it. Constantly telling me storage is full even though none of my apps have changed, causing the functionality of the phone to completely stop EVERYTHING! The text keyboard refuses to work and you can't access any apps. However, after removing all apps, factory resetting the phone, the phone/text features work fine. I will be giving this to my young daughter to use as a talk/text only phone, so I can be in contact with her.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DON'T DO IT!!! I've had this phone for almost two years now. When I first got it, everything was fine. But 1.5-2 years later, the phone is complete garbage. It's slow and error messages keep popping up every time. I've factory reset my phone, and yet it doesn't get better. I had an LG phone before and the same thing happened. I don't know why I even bothered to get another one. If you're looking for a temporary phone, sure go ahead. But, after 2 years, prepare to invest in something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Phone !! I've owned the phone for almost two years and it has performed flawlessly, especially for the low price! I've dropped it many many times and the screen has not broken and it just keeps going great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shuts down I loved this phone when I first got it almost 6 months ago. Now I hate it. It won't stay on an app or game too long and will automatically shut down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Phone, not so great service I got this phone about a year and a half ago, and I have to say, the phone was great. I had no problems with it and it worked fine. The display is big and it is durable, I have a small case and I drop it quite often, and I haven't done any damage to it. The battery is average, but it isn't bad. My only problem is the service. It can be slow at times, and even though it says unlimited data, they slow your speeds to the point where it is unuseable to watch videos. So, it is a great phone, but its service can get annoying at times.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good phone got this about 3 months ago. it has a decent size of memory to store my music playlist downloads etc. It was pretty good processor. The only thing i didn't like about it was when i was scrolling down thru any newsfeed (facebook, buzzfeed) if the article was a little long, the phone would freeze up and the window would close and go back to the home screen so you would have to sign in to whatever you were looking at. they told me to send it back for service which was pretty good turnaround time
