Rated 2 out of 5 Looks great, poor quality takes over
I'm a pretty simple guy when it comes to phones, but this one couldn't even handle my simple set-up -- a few social media apps and maybe 3 more various sports ones. Everything seems great, it's got a nice layout and initially hums along. But the memory is limited and I've now twice had to get it replaced. The first time I continually got error messages that kicked me out of any apps. That was replaced by the same model, and now just two months later, I started getting error messages and the home screen started locking up. Now it won't even turn on. It just gets to the loading screen with the LG logo and never brings up the home screen. Pretty frustrating. Clearly can't recommend this to anyone. Like I said, I don't expect much from my phone, but this one is not reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sallys LG I love this phone...lifes great!
This cell phone is an excellent product that I highly recommend. It has everything to keep your life easy, organized, and fun. The battery is amazing and lasts for a long time. I've had it on for 11 hours and it's still at 60%. It's easy to use and is amazingly fast downloads. I love the size and feeling when your holding it in your hand. The audio sound is very good too. I recommend getting an sd card for more storage for pictures and music. The price is very reasonable too and makes this phone one of the best cell phone available. I am very happy...life's great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LeeroyJenkins This product is worth the money
I bought this phone for my wife when she needed a new phone and I decided to get this phone. Best decision for buying a phone I have made. It has an extremely good battery life, it works great and I will get this phone when my phone bites the dust.
One thing is that the memory space is limited, so I recommend buying a micro SD card of at least 8 GB or more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AlanHouston Great Phone Except For Limited Memory
The LG F3 is an excellent 4G LTE phone if you are willing to work with its tiny internal memory.
First, its strong points: compact size, light weight, very strong battery life, nice four inch screen, and fast 4G LTE data speeds. The F3 looks like and functions as well phones selling for three or four times its price EXCEPT for its limited memory.
The F3 is ideal for people who only use their phone for phones calls and texts. A basic user can go 24 hours or even 48 hours on a battery charge. If you watch videos or use GPS to navigate in your car, battery life drops to four or five hours, still better than most phones when used for GPS.
Advanced users who want to download dozens of apps and games will be frustrated by the F3's tiny memory. You can gain some memory by adding a micro SD memory card, transferring some apps to the card, and deleting or disabling apps you never use. However, even then there will not be enough memory to download the largest games.
The rear camera takes good photos in bright sunlight and okay photos indoors using flash. The front camera for video chats is very poor quality.
Music sounds great through good headphones or Bluetooth speakers but is poor through the rear speaker.
If you want a light, compact phone that is well built and attractive with long battery life for making phone calls and texts, you will like the LG F3. If you want to download dozens of apps and games, you need to select a different LG model with much more internal memory.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LG-Optimus-Owner If only the internal memory wasn't all used up :(
The phone turns out to be useless, but simply because there is NO MEMORY left after the Google operating system, LG mandatory apps, and T-Mobile apps, NONE of which can be removed or moved to the microSD card. Yes, that's right. The microSD card is USELESS for apps. You can not delete apps from the internal 4G FLASH memory, nor can you move them to the micro SD card, nor can you install them directly to the microSD card. So, you end up, out of the box, with a phone, that is useless for adding apps. If you NEVER add apps, the phone is a fine phone. Well built. Performs well. Fast enough. But, it's NOT a smartphone. It's just a phone. If only LG made it so that you could MOVE and/or DELETE the bloatware, you'd have about 1GB of app storage space; but you don't even get HALF that, because of the way it's configured out of the box. All in all, I wish I had NEVER bought this phone. I can't give it away. It's that bad.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Iowacane Not bad, but lacking in a few areas
Sturdy phone with enough features to make it a good entry level phone, but it lacks memory and has a weak camera.
