What People Are Saying

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by WORST PHONE EVER IT HAS CLOSE TO NO MEMORY. I HAVE HAD PHONE FOR A MONTH AND I DON'T REALLY DOWN LOAD A LOT OF THINGS. 2 GAMES 3 SCREEN SAVERS FEW SONGS AND PICTURES AND ITS MAXED OUT. I HAVE HAD TO DELETE APPS 3 TIMES ALREADY AND STILL CAN'T UPLOAD ANYTHING ... WHAT A PIECE OF JUNK I REGRET EVER BUYING THIS PHONE. I GOT MORE MEMORY OFF OF MY LAST CHINESE KNOCK OFF PHONE ZTE THAN THIS TRASH PHONE March 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by The size is perfect. This is a great phone, good screen size, nice camera, love the front camera quality, overall good phone. February 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Impressed! Thin. Perfect size screen for me. Great capabilities. I've been happy with this phone for the past year! February 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great phone, internal memory not so great If you plan to store lots of pictures or download lots of apps...you would need to get a phone with more internal memory. I bought an extra memory card and I cant figure out how to be able download more apps to store on that memory card... other than that, this is an awesome phone! I don't even use a computer to go on the internet anymore...I'm able to use this phone to access the web September 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's a steal You get way more stuff for the price than i have ever received. August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My first Smartphone I was hesitant to learn the tech. of smartphones but dove in anyway. Even tho the LG Spirit I bought came with only limited tutorials, in just a few days I was able to navigate most of the features and now wonder why I waited so long. It is FAST, and the camera is Crisp. It is a perfect size and carries nicely in my pocket. My only concern is that it takes a long time to recharge the battery to 100%. August 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love my smart phone!!!!! I love the features and the battery last a long time. I can't wait for the Jelly Bean update!!!! July 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent features and speed The Spirit has all the features I need in a phone thanks to the overall design and Android OS and its really fast. Large display is great and really responsive. The cameras pictures are just fine and not as bad as some of the reviews say. The video is great and for both the LED flash is really bright. Call quality is just fine here in the Dallas area but the MetroPCS 4G is not very fast and kind of disappointing although it does work. WiFi works great. The phone is really light but seems pretty sturdy. Almost went for the motion but the bigger screen and faster processor on the Spirit sold me. Battery life is acceptable. June 15, 2013
