Rated 1 out of 5 by from this product has the worst battery life. This product wont even last me 5 hours, only if its on airplane mode, or else max is 3 hours sometimes 2 hours. i change the battery like 5 times and its still lasting me 3 hours. Some of the apps are not compatible for the phone. The only thing good is, the phone is skinny. I will not recommend to anyone in this world.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst phone ever The features are ok but the phone overall is probably the worst smart phone that Lg has made. Very very short battery life, the keyboard freezes and stops typing several times and you have to reboot the phone. The phone reboots all by itself randomly. Drops calls and sometimes you try to call someone and it freezes and wont do it. Im very disappointed at this phone, and somewhat disappointed at LG too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst phone by far The battery on this phone ruins it. Battery runs out for me after only 2 hours of what I consider normal use, email, txt, talking. I purchased an LG thinking the quality would be superb and boy was I wrong. When the phone is charged it works like a charm, great camera, speedy, and excellent coverage in my area with Metropcs, but all this is negated with the poor battery. This is my last experience with an LG phone as I will never purchase one in the future. This phone as you can tell left a very bad taste in my mouth. If there was a way to return this phone and get ANYTHING in return I would do it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's not the phone I have this phone about a year+ some month. The Batterie lasted about 3-4 hours. I was enable to drain the batterie in less than an hour. My phone starting to turn off and on by it self,overheated, too. I tried a new Batterie, same problem. My friend gave me his phone what's the same model but newer, this one never turned off, batterie life last a hole day till I installed GOOGLE mail, google calendar, Play store and some other apps. Phone turns off by it self and overheated, too.I turned off the data phone stays on no overheating. The Android software is 2.3 and the newest software is more than 4.0 The phone hardware is good but the software is old.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Battery does not last no longer than 1 hour. I love the phone size and features, however the battery does not last no longer than 1 hour. This is a disappointment. This phone would have been great if the battery could last longer. I can not stand this phone and I'm excited to get rid of it and get a new phone. CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT MY PHONE. NEED LASTING BATTERY!!!
