What people are saying
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my phone - but the battery..... I have had this phone for almost 3 years - I got it when it first came out. We are on Verizon. It has been great - until recently. The phone just turns off at random percentages - from 20% to 65%...even one time as high as 72%. No warning at all - just goes black. I don't know if I need to get another battery or if it is time for a new phone. I've been pleased to get 3 years out of this phone with no other problems. Has anyone else had this issue?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great phone for the price! This phone has many features but I got an unlocked one. I wish I could get the "verison Bloatware off it.
Date published: 2019-08-17
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Two steps back I have had this phone 1 year. I had to get it since my LG Optimus G Pro e980 no longer had updates. It was my favorite phone. When I got this phone I didn't really love it because my previous phone was so much better. I was an LG lover til I got this phone. I think it is an ok phone but not great. Also after a year I am beginning to have lots of weird issues that are forcing me to get a new phone. Unfortunately I don't think I will buy another LG. The screen broke while in a wallet case and has continued to get worse and I don't even understand how. The glass is terrible. The battery is terrible, lasts only a half day. Luckily I can switch it out for a charged one. Now when I turn it on it says updating firmware, waiting for any connection. Not satisfied with this phone purchase.
