Hate this phone
I loved this phone for the features, good service area and looks nice. I HATE THE MEMORY ISSUES!!! It constantly is out of memory and the moment I delete another app or more picture, the apps that come with the phone (that you cannot delete) do an update and take up the space that was just freed up. I do not understand why there is a spot for an SD card WHEN YOU CANT USE IT!!!!!! I'm ready to smash the phone Im so frustrated with it. Also has gotten slower and slower .......

Great phone, good price.
This is my second smartphone, and I love it! Screen size is not too big, but a good size to see everything. Smooth transition into apps, notifications, etc... Easy to use. Very good quality product. Takes really good pics too. Good price for all you get. Would definitely recommend.

Low onboard storage cripples it.
I got this phone for my teenage daughter last summer because she did not want the larger high-end phones and this one had good size, large capacity battery, very snappy performance but low onboard storage. I figured we could get around the low storage with an SD card, but too late discovered the complete inability to move apps to SD. Makes the phone almost unusable. She can have only a VERY small number of apps and the phone still reaches low memory frequently. If it had another 2 gig of storage it would be a great phone, but as is, it is nearly worthless.

Great speed. Poor internal memory
I have gotten the LG optimus phone every time there is a new model available for Virgin and decided the F3 was the clear choice due to its price and speed. The only beef I have is the memory. I have a 2gb external sd card and I can only load pics, video, and text messages. The old optimus versions allowed movement of the apps to the sd card. Not so with the F3. 1gb is all I get for apps(I have 4 installed and a bunch of pre installed apps that I can't delete. I love the upgrade from a 2.3 speed on 3g to a 4.1 with 4g avail. Hopefully LG will re fix the memory issue on the next phone available for Virgin and I'm in.
