What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth it I've had this for over a year now, and it definitely has its ups and downs. PROS: - good size, not giant like some phones these days and will actually fit in your pocket - works fast and easy to use - durable, I drop it at least once a day with no fear of the screen ever breaking CONS: -storage is HORRIBLE. I have 8 apps total and have to delete caches of memory at least twice a day. by far the worst part of this phone - poor camera quality, whenever I need a good picture taken of something I ask one of my iPhone friends to take it instead - glitchy, for instance this week it decided to stop notifying me when I get a Snapchat, despite my settings - will have issues you'll need to google in order to fix - Sometimes I don't receive texts that are sent to me (for instance, when storage is full) In conclusion: unless you don't download apps, you can find a better phone

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great starter phone, NOT the latest & greatest I have had this phone since July, 2014 and it's been somewhat kind to me. Near the beginning of having this phone, it's great, until you uncover the many flaws included in this phone; the usable internal storage memory is absolutely horrifying (1.27 GB), especially for teenagers like myself (I am 15 y/o). I only have about 10 apps that I have downloaded from Google Play. It's very excruciatingly how annoying it is when you cannot get an app you wanted, even when your storage says you have more than enough memory (even allowing for a fallback amount) to download an app, yet it does not allow it due to "insufficient memory". After a while, the phone begins to show signs of slowing. The phone will get slow and stays that way. And an innumerable amount of times, the rotation messes up and I've had to restart the device in order for the rotation to be fixed (the only positive thing about this nuisance is that it doesn't take very long to restart). I am soon going to be getting a phone, most likely the LG G Stylo. Now, I don't think the flaws with this phone are bad, but only appealing to certain people. The problem I have with this phone is how MetroPCS Customer Service sold it to me, leading me to believe it was a great phone. Granted, I knew little about phone specs because I was only 13 at the time and it had been my first smartphone (I now know a lot about what is acceptable and how much of something you can do with), but I am still disappointed in MetroPCS for that reason. Another reason which I haven't found an answer to though, is that even though I have a 16GB SD card in my phone, I have not been able to get hardly anything over on it, even when I click "Move to SD Card" on an individual app listing. It doesn't show any memory of the app being moved to the SD Card in the individual app listing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good value product It would be a great phone if it weren't for the very limited internal storage space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It has great features but not enough memory. I like that this phone is very user friendly. I hate the way it saves apps to the sd card though usb storage it makes it's memory capabilities very limited. Other then that i love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from everything i need at an incredible price I was spoiled with company-provided devices that were replaced with each new generation so when the time came to purchase my own device, I discovered a tremendous value and all of the features I needed in the LG Optimus for hundreds less than I was accustomed to paying. The device was simple to set up and customize and other than a few challenges with application updates and storage space, I've been very happy with the phone, camera and the size of the device overall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from this product has great features but sensible I bought this item three months ago and it is very practical, easy to use and manage and looks great. looks very sophisticated but I guess is kind of sensible, after three months of usage all out of the blue, the screen turned black and I cant see anything nor do anything. However the phone is still working but I cant really do anything because of the black screen.
