Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good phone I've owned this phone since October 13th of 2018 the phone I had before this one was the 2016 LG K8 (lg us375) I only had that one for about 2 months and needed a upgrade because the storage ran out, so I got this phone for $50 USD after getting it out of the box putting the sim card from my old phone in and transferring all my apps and settings with the LG backup app I had enough space to install more apps, I have almost 300 now and this phone has USB otg (so I can use controllers to play my games) it has a good battery (see screenshot) and has very good performance even with a dead/dieing CPU core, the 2018 K8 case fits and the glass on the front of the screen is made of gorilla glass 3 so these phones can be dropped or thrown and won't break very easily, I like the removable battery the glass on the screen and the power/volume buttons. Anybody looking for a new phone should buy one of these After a couple more months I will be doing a review of this phone on YouTube so when I do that I will add the link here
