What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A terrible device you should never buy The battery life is crap and it takes forever to charge good thing this piece of crap is discontinued.
Date published: 2020-11-14
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for a basic SmartPhone! I have had this phone for over 3 years. Works well in many aspects being low budget. Internal memory of 8GB is too small, because most of the APPs that come with it take up more than half of that. You need to transfer files to an internal SD card, that you need to install to free up internal memory. No capabilities for casting or streaming to LG TV. It says my phone is up to date. Last update is "never". 3 years and no LG software updates? EMOJIs are out of date, not comparable with some other phones. It has it's flaws, but hey, not all that bad.
