Rated 3 out of 5 by Quahog Memory is inadequate
If you just need a great performing phone with clear reception this is a great phone. If you like to use a lot of apps (download), tunes, videos, this is not the phone to buy. I made the mistake of not checking out the specs and the internal memory is inadequate. I have deleted many of the apps I love (and you can't delete the ones that came with the phone) and it still keeps saying there is not enough internal storage to perform certain tasks. Yikes!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Original407 This phone is garbage
For the past 5 years I have owned LG phones on both Verizon and Virgin Mobile. This single device has forever turned me off of LG Products. It lacks any kind of storage, limiting you to very few apps, it has killed 2 SD cards costing me a lot of data. The keyboard constantly crashes and is unavailable. I have never had such bad luck with a LG product, it has made rethink ever owning one again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RLperkins92503 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 .......

Rated 5 out of 5 by htmsnyder 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rog98372 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JKreissig 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shane33 Great phone if "Quiet Mode" doesn't turn itself on
Really like the phone. Upgraded from LG Optimus V and this phone is worlds better. HOWEVER, phone switches into quiet mode all on it's own. I have made sure the feature is turned off and it still kicks into quiet mode when sitting on the counter, at random times. This makes the phone worthless if I can't be notified of incoming calls/texts/emails. When the phone is working, it's great. Battery life is excellent. Back of case texture has a slick feel. I'm always afraid it is going to slip out of my hands. Also, the volume controls are directly opposite the on/off button, which means I am constantly accidently changing volume when I grab the phone to turn on/off. If quiet mode wasn't an issue, I would recommend this phone and give it 4 or 5 stars.
