What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad but limited memory with too much bloatware It's a 5 inch screen device with Android 6.0, which should have addressed earlier gripes about intuitive use of files, particularly pictures. Unfortunately am still struggling to move pix to the external memory. The phone has 8GB internal memory which would be OK but over 60% is taken up by bloatware. Struggling to get rid of this, so I can put WhatsApp on and SkyWatch. I keep getting advice to delete WhatsApp. This really knocks down the user-friendliness of the phone. LG is no worse than other manufacturers, and the phone is pretty good to look and handle but an otherwise good value phone is rendered unacceptable by the user being unable to remove apps they don't want.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gets worse with updates K8 used to be a good phone for me but the latest OS update and google apps have made the phone almost unusable one of these two things has absolutely murdered battery life to the extent it doesn't even last a whole day anymore. Even bought a new battery to make absolutely sure it wasn't that to no avail. Sort yourselves out LG.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for money I had this phone for one year now and it can be a bit slow at times but most of the time it works well and with every penny

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not as much as I had expected. have hade this phone for some months now, size of memory a bit disappointing will not upgrade apps now, memory is not full yet and is affecting performance, still about the best mobile I have hade to date.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless Storage This was my first smartphone. On purchase most (7+GB) of the minimal 8GB is already taken up by pre-installed apps which cannot be uninstalled. You must continually clear the remaining 1GB of memory to allow apps to be updated and to take more photos. Transfer to a PC for more permanent storage is not easy. Don't buy this phone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Expected more A nice sized mobile, works well but is let down by lack of storage only 8mb. Thought it was 16 but was wrong wished I had bought a different model now purely for lack of storage, adding a memory card doesn't really help. In other ways it seems OK.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish Storage Have to say this is the worse phone I've ever had. The internal memory is poor to say the least. Constantly having to clear space and always have issues in updating apps. I'll never buy a phone like this again
