What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love everything about this phone, to be honest. I researched a lot of phones and although this phone no longer receives support and you have to update it manually online, it's still A LOT of bang for your buck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheap, solid budget smartphone This is not a phone to replace a desktop computer. This is a smartphone for people who want to have a phone, send and receive texts, read email and news and Wikipedia -- for $40 and $40 a month. You're not going to want to watch movies on this phone, you're not going to want to play taxing games. Shop through Amazon, sure; spend all day on Facebook, no. The knock-to-unlock feature is a little glitchy, which is annoying. Battery life is above-average, and charging is fast. I've found this phone completely reliable and pretty easy to use. Worst problem: It can be tough to find armor that fits it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't buy I have had nothing but trouble with this phone. It started out OK but then things started to go wrong. Right now I have to try a factory reset because Facebook and Messenger will not work. It keeps telling me app unavailable I also get a message that says "unfortunately Google Pay Store has stopped" which means I cannot download or update anything. Safe yourself the hassle and buy a different phone

When I select the speaker button people can't hear me at the other end. In other words when I select the speaker it mutes me.

We hate to hear that, but would love to be able to help. We would be happy to see what's going on. Drop us a line on Twitter at @LGUSSupport or on Facebook so we can get more info and see what we can do. ^CP
