What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excelent phone I'm very happy with my New phone is easy to use thanks

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's okay but... The camera isn't that great but the phone overall is amazing I have no other problems with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable in its Simplicity After having this product for over a month, I can honestly say that I am glad I did. The screen is deceptively large (making easier to see for an old guy like me). The phone is both easy and helpful in set up and customization. After which, I find its ease of use extrodinary. Why not 5 stars? The one hitch is that some of the un-necessary (un-useful) pre-set apps are hard or can't be gotten rid of. Thereby, taking up memory capaciity that could be useful later or in the future. But overall, this smartphone is enjoyable for the price range it can be gotten for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No recption I bought the LG knowing the company makes good phones. But it is either the phone or the Cricket network that does not provide good reception.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse phone ever pop up ads nearly Everytime you turn it on. WiFi disconnects spontaneously, the screen freezes,processes slow, can't make calls half the time, bad camera quality

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like LG. I've own a couple different phones and I enjoyed them all but with this one the M153 the batter drains faster that any other I owned and gets hot when I use it and charging I don't want it to get damaged
Date published: 2017-09-18
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible phone The phone is cropping out on me after only having it for like 3 months doesn't like to take a charge gets way too hot up near the camera area not even the battery but if it gets hot u can forget it on it taking a charge. .it's a horrible phone worst phone I've ever had in my life and I've had a lot of different phones over the yrs but thidb one is by far the worst

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Find something else If I wanted a phone with no feature, this would fit my need. BUT, I didn't find out until after the contract how useless this phone really is. Even as a phone, it's pathetic. Short, very short battery life. Short range, you have to be almost standing under a tower to get a signal. And then there are all the adds, unwanted I might ad that keep popping up on the phone. Real annoying when you are trying to use it. I would give both LG and Cricket wireless a ZERO if they had that rating option.
