What People Are Saying

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great features I have been with this phone since Sept 2013 and had enjoyed its features. I'm planning to change it now because of lack of space to update most of its features. LG G STYLO would probably be my next phone. June 13, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by horrible lg phone I got this phone given to me after my lg l70 first week melted the charger. and broke two glass screens. Worst phone. Very basic. Can not put anything on the memorycard. No emoji on kkeyboard very boring phone and has issues charging as well April 3, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by No enough internal memory When I take this phone i was happy because I want to have different application that I really need. But for my surprise this phone have less internal memory that my old cell phone. If you want a cellphone just for calls and text this is the ideal phone. January 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this phone! It's out of date now and past time for an upgrade, but it is a phone that I'm glad I purchased. For Me the ONLY draw back is. They made it difficult to move files from the phones internal sd to the external sd. If they were to upgrade this phone and FIX that feature I would buy it. Good phone for the price when I got mine. December 29, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Its alright, but could be a LOT better If you want to have a few apps, this phone is for you. Only 2gb! I've had it for a year now and every while it says low space. The camera isnt so great either. It could be better. I have rated this phone quite low mostly because of the space. I mean 2 Gb, Come on! However the style is okay and size is pretty good for me.still, I do not recommend this phone December 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 My phone has all the features i need. Excellent dropped it more than a couple of times. Never broke screen. Works great. I enjoy my phone. I had my phone over a year 11/2. December 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Phone This is a great phone, the only drawback is that there is no storage on the sd card for apps. It only will hold pictures,movies,and music. The internal storage is a very small 2gb, which is really bad!!!!!! Next time I will get something with larger internal memory and one that will save apps to the sd card. October 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent budget phone rich in features I love this phone. I bought it in March of 2014 and while it certainly doesn't have all the 'bells and whistles' that more expensive phones have, it does work well for what is expected of it. It has no problems playing games and the screen is very bright and clear. Based on my average use, the battery lasts about two days before i have to charge it. September 27, 2014
