What People Are Saying

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not enough internal memory This phone is a huge disappointment. It feels good and looks good, but you will be up against internal memory limitations with one or two apps added. I have to constantly delete old e-mails, photos, files and reboot te phone. The internal memory still seems to fill up even if you do nothing. The phone capabilities also also is poor. People I am speaking with will often tell me that I sound muffled. I then have to move or speak louder and more slowly. I am getting a new phone.. July 31, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by great phone the only thing that I dont like is small internal memory capacity other than that it'sa great phone wwith great features i love this phone. July 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by lg optimus f3 great cellphone and very easy to use no dropped calls at all and nice design thanks lg for making a great looking phone June 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is well worth the money.! This phone offers everything that any other cell phone can provide. I'm totally happy with the performance of this phone. Great job LG!! March 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Overall Great Smart Phone This is the first Smart Phone I got for myself, and am very happy with my choice. It's a very comfortable size and weight, fits in a pocket but still big enough to see everything on the screen. My one issue with it is the hard drive space, but a microSD card takes care of that. February 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best of things come in small packages!!! I'm extremely satisfied with this phone. I always been inclined to purchased top cell brands. But, because of the way our economy is I started searching for a phone with low cost and great performance. First I bought this phone to my son, then to my daughter..and after realizing their phones were faster than mine, I didn't think twice and I purchase the LG F3 too. I'm very glad I did it, everything works just fine, my Hotspot, wifi, bluetooth, camera, browsing the net, etc, etc, etc. It's a phone of high quality in a small package. The size is not the greatest, but believe me, clear enough to send emails, purchasing items over the net, taking great pictures and so many more things. Two Thumbs Up!!! February 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Reliable with Incredible Battery Life This is my second Android phone and my first 4G phone. I needed the phone for reliable phone calls, texts, and intermittent web usage. This phone really does a great job on all counts. I have yet to get a dropped call. My son took his to Texas, while I stayed in NY with mine. He had a signal wherever he went, as did I. Never lost touch with him. As a bonus, this phone has incredible battery life. It easily goes 2 to 3 days before needing a charge, with light to normal phone and text usage. Hey look. If you are a cell phone, music, social networking, game playing maven, you may want a phone with more bells and whistles. For me and my needs, it is perfect. January 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by good for some not so good for... the phone itself works as a phone very well I use it for tethering and that also functions well .the only problems I had were the keys on the key pad are too small and when you use the auto fix it takes awhile for it to remember words transferring to sd card is simple (its in the settings under storage) so no complaints about storage here .that's about as far as I go on the cons other than that it is a good deal p.s .metro ads are annoying i got rid of em in first 10 min.
