Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Second One!! After going through some poorly designed, and fragile, flip phones, I found this one to be the best overall. Built solid, and good sound quality! Small flip phone type screen = battery charges last a long time. Hardware buttons are intuitive - the 450 doesn't try to do too many peripheral functions you'll never use. Only shortcoming (for me) is the difficulty of importing custom ringtones and wallpapers - there's no computer interface. I just had someone else attach them to a text and send them to me. You'll have to go to message settings and select "convert to MMS", to get the attachments. I nearly never use the camera, but it's easy to use, and easy to send pics to other cell phones. I had cell phones back in the early 90's, and am now, way over the fascination of 24/7 phone access. I got rid of my smartphone years ago and never looked back. There is a BIG upside to no GPS, no expensive data plans and no intrusive data farming.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Network support; User Files&Data backup. My complaints: 1) We bought this pone new from T-mobile store in late 2016. In mid 2017 T-mobile decided to change their network (drop 3G) and rendered their own "supported" phone with their logo on it obsolete in less than a year of service! (calls are still possible via 2G, but at a very poor quality with frequent disconnects) 2) As we were forced to buy a new phone, I was shocked to find out that there's NO simple way to extract (backup to PC) and/or transfer ANY saved data from it (to another device). Micro USB port seems to be for charging only, and it doesn't seem to support ANY kinds of transfer of user files and records (images, voice files, txt, phone book, etc.). This is a disaster, as any personal data you have put on the device is literally kept hostage and goes to waste once the phone reaches EOL. What I liked about the phone are simple ergonomic design with nice text to voice features. But these little benefits will never compensate for the hassle of having to discard a barely used phone along with all pictures and other user data that should really belong to its owner!!!!! Such a disappointment... Not something I've expected from LG, which was the brand I used to respect and trust in the past, based on experience with some of their other products (phones and appliances).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT cell phone! One of the BEST cell phones, and small, but works GREAT, and easy to use, and LESS CHANCE of brake (like many OTHER NOT LG brand cell phones).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from badly written manual I have owned several cell phones. While this phone has many nice features, it is hard to use some of them since the manual does an awful job of explaining specifically how to use them. No online videos at all covering how to text and how to use the camera. Awful for 2016. The manual has tiny, light type, making it hard to read, and only a few images, which are also not very good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a nice upgrade from a smartphone! I had gotten my first smartphone for free several months ago with a new plan. After using one for a few weeks, it was made clear to me why there are so many issues with people using their phones and driving. Smartphones are the most inefficient and effective device that can be used as a phone. You always have to look at the device to use it, it's too easy to accidentally answer or hang up calls, and the sound quality is horrendous - how is it that these new devices have sound quality far inferior to that of phones from decades prior. It's absolutely befuddling to me that people don't recognize that a smartphone is the most incompetent device ever made to serve the purpose of a phone. With that said, the lg-b450 does a much better job at being a phone than any smartphone out there. You can answer calls and have conversations blindfolded, it's not possible to accidentally hang up on people, the sound quality is much better, and you have the luxury of getting to press a real button when punching numbers into your phone. This is why I truly believe that a flip phone is an upgrade from a smartphone. Think about it, smartphones fail at being a phone and are far inferior to a personal computer or laptop. Do what I did, ditch the smartphone and get something that more closely resembles a phone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Phone failed Very nice phone. It only lasted eight months, and I am quite disappointed. I'm back to an old LG phone that works well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LG Still Makes Solid Flip Phones I previously used the 440G but due to signal issues with the carrier I was forced to switch to T-Mobile LG True (T-Mobile B450 Variant). I collect these types of phones but Life's Good seems to produce consistently solid clamshell phones still these days, as far as my experiences with the 440G would entail. Firstly the build is closer to what you'd expect a clamshell from before Smartphones taken precedence, there's no looseness in the battery cover or settling in the plastic on both the top and bottom halves. The hinge on the B450 is a bit looser than the 440G's when folded closed, but there's smooth opening with very solid stability when opened, and no rattle whatsoever. The keypad is made of quality rubber and is easier to use than other T9 capable pads I've used. The B450 is visually more interesting with the attractive carbon-blue gradient, the B450 is a shade of Cobalt-Charcoal rather than black as described. In terms of ergonomics, it's top-notch. This phone is equipped with a full-fledged Java MIDP 2.0 platform, which means you can install basic games and Apps (and even Browsers) whereas many OEM's seem to ditch Java in favor of BREW or an OEM-Locked signature runtime. In essence while it's a phone for making calls and text, you have an extent of feature-flexibility. That said, you won't find SD Card support (not that necessary if you happen to notice the accessibility features), but it WILL allow you to transfer files phone-to-phone via Bluetooth. Most Bluetooth capable handsets allow you to receive files for free without needing to send them via messaging. The T-Mobile browser shortcut is handy if you want to refill the account from the website. Call volume isn't spectacular, even on loudspeaker, but it gets the job done. The TTS will make texting a breeze for seniors who may have difficulties proofreading a text message even at larger fonts. Ringtones and message tones are impressively loud, however. As far as the camera goes, who really cares? There are 3MP or 5MP capable flip phones on the market but most of them seem locked to carriers and you'll likely have to pay twice the amount (up to smartphone) expenses just for an unlocked version, and if you really put that much worth on a basic shooter. If there was a non-camera option for the B450 I'd probably have bought that instead of the camera-equipped device as I already have a smartphone for that. Overall LG still has it in the bag, various aspects of build and ease of use was had not gone ignored. Although a better call volume on what is a newer feature phone would have been enough to give the quality a solid 5-Stars. Some may be discouraged by the reliance on Bluetooth, but again this isn't for someone who wants to spend more than a few minutes at a time on their cell phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a good basic phone For folks who don't want or need all the "frills" this is a good, basic phone. The only complaint I have is that photos cannot be saved to a computer, flash drive, etc.
