Rated 1 out of 5 by This phone is absolutely terrible. Argh. Just thinking about this phone is giving me a headache and that's stupid cuz I'm using it to write this review. There is not a single thing I like about this phone. It has terrible memory space, for starters. It doesn't let you move apps to the SD card to free up some space. It comes loaded with a bunch of useless apps that take up all the memory space! Even after fitting it with a 16 GB SD card, the "Storage space is running out" is constantly there. After disabling a bunch of preloaded apps, it freed up about 200 MB of space. How generous. The camera constantly crashes as well. The quality is already terrible but the whole app crashing on top of that? Come on, LG. You can do better than that! This phone is simply the worst decision of my life. I regret paying the $60 as a down payment. I still have a $100 or so left to pay on my tab. I do not reccomend this phone to anyone. Save yourself the time, money, and frustration and DO NOT buy this phone. You will want to throw it across the room, like I have several times but it refuses to be destroyed. I guess that's something it has going for it. It's virtually indestructible. I dropped it in the snow while getting out of my car and it stayed buried under there all night. During the ice storm. In Canada. And it worked perfectly fine the next day. Not a scratch on it. But the rest of the features are garbage. I can't wait until I have the means to get a better phone. Then I'm giving this one to my little nephew to chew on and throw against the wall. August 20, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Low Price, Low Quality This phone is inexpensive for a reason. The internal storage is too small to actually do anything you would get a smartphone for. Hope you don't want a lot of apps, because you can fill up the home screen and that's about it. It also freezes pretty much anytime I open any application. I've missed calls because the touchscreen froze and so I couldn't answer. Routinely drops calls and fails to send text messages.Sometimes restarts when I'm trying to do something for no apparent reason whatsoever. I'm ready to go back to my old non-smartphone at this point because at least I could make phone calls. This was my first LG phone and will probably be my last. Anytime I borrow a friend's phone, I'm amazed at how smoothly it runs and that the screen isn't freezing or going black because I'm so used to this one. August 18, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Phone is great until you want to add apps The phone has a very low internal storage and really after 10 apps, you're done. You can get an sd card for you photos/texts but transferring apps is impossible unless you root your phone. If you are just interested in using the internet and texting with little app usage you are fine, but those of us who enjoy social media and games and GPS apps on your phone at the same time are out of luck August 12, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Limited I have had 2 lg phones and both have storage errors. The headphone jack volume is limited so when I play another device through my auxilary jack I cannot get full power. August 12, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst decision of my life This phone is horrible. I got it in November and a week later, I wanted to hit it repeatedly with a hammer. It needs more memory and there are issues with the camera. As soon as I clear up a little memory so I can at least get SOME of my texts, it uses the tiny bit of space that I have to update an app that I don't even use. DO NOT GET THIS PHONE. July 14, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by bloatware makes phone unusable Phone works great until you start adding apps. The phones internal memory is all but used up by the operating system and bloatware from lg/tmobile. I have used 8gb of a 32 gb sd card and have transfered all i can to it but my phone constantly has memory issue's because alot of everyday apps cannot be downloaded to an sd card. Now the phone constantly freezes and it takes 15 minutes to write a review like this because typing cannot even keep up. So if you only use email and call people the phone will work great. Otherwise it will constantly freeze due to memory issues I'd recommend finding something without bloatware or with more than 4 gb of internal memory. I wish my galaxy s 2 did not crack and break because its like night and day compared to this phone. I cannot wait till i can afford a new phone. July 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Handset is great. Support, not so much. The phone itself is a great device. Sound is good. Picture is great. Internal memory is a bit stingy, but I added a nice big SD card and can store a lot of files there. However, I have problems with it in using Bluetooth audio devices. Phone calls work great, but media audio will not, even with LG Bluetooth speakers designed for media usage, like the LG HBS700 Tone Plus. Also, they are way behind in keeping the Operating System up to date. It has been well over a year since the version of Android that they are running now was released. For security's sake there should be some updates done. July 9, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by This phone is a piece of Junk I got this phone in August of 2013 and it had been working fine till recently. then it started to turn its self off and back on even while i was playing games or texting. it even did it while i was on a call. I took it to the store to complain and they sent me a new one that refuses to connect to wifi. i asked around and looked up how to fix this but nothing worked. As of this experience, i will never buy another LG product again! July 9, 2014
