What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent phone This is probably the best cell phone I have owned. I never buy the expensive phones and usually you get what you pay for except with this little gem. This phone is fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG K20 Bought this phone to replace my busted iPhone6. It's just as good or better. Tired of shelling out the $$ for iPhones over the years and decided to switch to a budget phone that does everything I need. Big bonus for me was being able to add micro SD card for expanded storage as well as removable battery. Excellent value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great phone Bought this 10 days ago. Replaced an I phone 5S. I primarily use the phone and txt with limited internet. So far it has worked great. Better than the I phone with less cost. Battery life is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone for the money Great phone for the money. I switched from another carrier to ATT and saw this phone for $4.00/mo. I was paying $25+ for Samsung s7. This phone is awesome. Really. Totally recommend. Pros: Battery! wow battery life, Lightweight, nice keyboard (texting), good screen (youtube videos and movies look good), good processor (notice no difference from S7), nice feel to the phone, expandable sdcards, easy to take back off, Android software, PRICE Cons: It is alittle wide to handle with one hand when typing, a bit bigger than the new iPhone 8 and Samsung s7. screen is very good, side by side to the newer phones not as bright or clear - but that helps the battery last forever. Keyboard for texting not as good as iPhone8 (bought 2 for my kids), but actually better than the S7 keyboard. Best Feature: It is very lightweight, the back as a roughness to it that helps hold it, not a glass back, feels plastic but rubbery, odd, but I like it. the screen size is very good, but as mentioned before, typing and holding with one hand is not as good as the iphone8, but it is a bigger phone. Battery life is crazy good, twice as good as the Samsung s7, which i attribute to processing power, and screen brightness. I got this phone for call quality (which is amazing, clear) and battery life, I use this phone for work. For $4 bucks month, you can't beat this. Yes the iPhone 8 is probably a better phone all around, but cost is much more than this phone . Can't justify that for me. This can do everything any other smart phone can do. Web, Videos, Music, great apps (android), games, etc.
