What people are saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've had it for nearly 4 years, OK. Chrome browser is great. Good phone. Camera is not the greatest, needs good light, blurs easily. 4 1/2 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Is there a compass app? I read this phone has a digital compass but cannot seem to make it work. Reach out to me if it matters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bang for the buck... Picked one of these up at Family Dollar for ten bucks -- some type of clearance sale. I'm an Android Developer and wanted the device strictly for development purposes (rooting, bootloader unlocking, kernel modding, etc.) Straight out of the box, this phone has impressive specs. The stock Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS is extremely responsive and smooth, with a balance between power and performance provided by the Snapdragon 210 quad-core Cortex-A7 processor. This baby clocks at 1.1 GHz, with multitasking an ease with the ample 1.5 GB RAM. (Budget smartphones almost always have 1 GB RAM or less, so 1.5 GB is both surprising and a huge bonus) The Snapdragon X5 LTE cellular modem is rated at a very adequate Cat 4 -- with download speeds of up to 150 Mbps, upload speeds at 50 Mbps. Calls are always crystal clear, and the integrated cellular antenna seems to hold a strong cellular signal. Last not least, the integrated and dedicated Adreno 304 graphics processor (GPU) allows for moderate gaming with no lag or overheating. I would recommend this device to anyone pondering on a great budget smartphone. These devices are typically $40 to $50 -- sometimes a bit more -- and they are worth every penny. An exceptional budget smartphone exclusively by Verizon Wireless.

Hello How can find the last firmware & drivers? to resolve "Secure Booting error code 1009"

Asked by: CDML
You may want to try starting the LG Optimus Zone™ 3 | Verizon Wireless Prepaid, Model # VS425PP is Safe Mode and see if it works in safe mode. If it does, then there is likely something on the device that is causing the 'Secure Booting Error Code 1009'. If it will not work in safe mode or in any mode at all, then you will need to have the phone looked at. To start the phone in Safe Mode, turn the phone off then press and hold the 'Power' until you see the LG logo on the screen, then release the power button. Next, quickly press the Volume Down and hold it for a few seconds until you see the message "Safe Mode: ON or something similar. To deactivate Safe Mode, simply repeat the above steps, and instead of Safe Mode On, you should see Safe Mode Off. Should you need further assistance, please contact our Support Center at (800) 243-0000...^IFV
