What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from adequate as a phone, annoying otherwise Very slow to respond on the touch screen and often annoying unwanted screens pop up. extremely annoying to text on, adds periods for no reason, sends texts prematurely, flips screens. Poor quality from the camera. worthless for using with the data package, or maybe that is just verizon, barely adequate with wifi. Nice size. I had a protective case on it that made it too bulky and then I realized I actually don't care if I drop it and break it. I'm getting rid of it soon. I hate it. But then I don't love phones in general, just a necessary tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its pretty good. Ok so I have had this phone for just about 2 years now and over all I can say that it is a nice phone if you don't have the money to get a more expensive one. The battery when I first got it was amazing I could go all day on it and still have a little bit left the next day, but as it got older the battery isn't so grate any more. It's really durable as well as I have dropped a few hundreds time and it hasn't broken yet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Poor Quality. Does not perform to expected standards. Poor batter life. Slow processor. Still using 4.0 platform. When will it be updated? Exceed 2 has update. Android users should ALL be able to update OS when new versions are released.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product has great performance and overall qualitys This phone is a great buy it was affordable and it has proven to be reliable as well . The only drawback was that it did give me an error message on start up. I do believe it was my own doing that caused it but they sent me a new one right away without any questions. Great customer service along with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little smart phone It was a great phone before it died just two days after the warranty ended. Then at that time it wasn't even a poor phone. However, Verizon is awesome and they sent me a new one at no charge. The new phone just a day old wont load Playbook or anything else so that I can get the apps I had on the old at the moment not real happy. Either way, the phone was free in Jan of 2013 and it was my first smartphone, so I really have nothing to compare it to; but non-the-less it is a great phone!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not recommended I've had this phone for only 3 months and already I've wanted to stick it in the garbage disposal at least a half dozen times. I text a lot and this phone has a habit of sending my texts before I am even ready to 'send' and I have no 'cancel,' button. It's also easy to send your texts to the wrong recipient. If I receive a call, sometimes phone answers before I know who's calling. Yes, I've checked all of the settings that I want. Lousy ring tones and alerts also. There are other issues but these are the most troublesome to me. I've had a prepaid account for almost 5 years and I bought this phone because I couldn't find a decent prepaid phone with a camera flash and LG makes a great phone. This time I'm disappointed.
