Rated 3 out of 5 by from Storage Great phone overall, good looks and everything. Until you see that "running low on memory" reminder. I am a gamer and I can't download more than 2 apps. These apps I have take up 300 mb at max. Good phone just lacks storage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissappointed I bought the LG Optimus 70 (M323) 1-2 years ago and had issues right away. Next time around I will make sure to look at phone ratings before purchasing my next phone.The storage is horrible even with an SD card. The apps take up most of the room and I had to take whatever additional apps (2 or 3) off to make room. The updates keep appearing even after I have updated and my system update won't happen because there's not sufficient space. The recorder quality is not great at all. The camera quality isn't great but that I can deal with. I don't need much in having a phone but even this product successfully disappointed me. Even in trying to get assistance from the store I bought the phone from was clueless on how to fix any of the problems. I am a single mom and a student, life is more difficult when my phone does not work properly. Most likely in the future I won't buy another LG phone due to these complications.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could be better My 2 biggest problems are with this phone are the lack of internal storage and the camera. The internal storage is so low that there's always a "Storage Space Is Running Out" notification. There isn't enough storage to run any app updates or perform some basic functions like Email. The camera does a decent job in perfectly lit situations but performs poorly in less than ideal light. The photos become grainy. The video is where things get really bad. Even in well lit situations, video is still really noisy. The sound quality in the videos recorded is also poor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Cell Phone I Ever Owned! This phone was supposed to be an upgrade from my Metro PCS service when they transitioned into their new network. This phone barely has enough internal memory to run and update the apps that are installed by the manufacturer more less any installed by the owner/user. Tried installing a external memory card but nothing can really be save to it and when you do a manual update, everything gets erased from the memory card anyways. Will be replacing this phone as soon as possible!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick on the outside and big on the inside! It was easy to pick up the KitKat system and the regular features are great.
