Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's alright for a first phone I have had this phone for over a year now, and it's been very good. There's been really no issues Except for about 5 days ago. When I press the volume button ONCE, it turns the volume up about 4 times. This really annoys the heck out of me, because I need to use the slider that pops up on top to get the volume I want. Plus, the speaker isn't great. The bass is terrible, on high volumes the phone vibrates, and it doesn't go that loud, and sometimes in an echoey room the first volume notch is too loud. Also the camera is really just terrible in low light, you can't use flash under 15% (SUPER ANNOYING!) and you can't use the camera below 5%. This is my first phone, and it's been a good one. The worst thing that's happened though, is the charger. I've used the same stock LG charger for 1 year and 3 weeks now. Then when I woke up, the charger fell out of the phone. This is probably caused by the wear on the little prongs that hold it in the device. Also there's "Slow Charging." If you use any other charger other than the LG charger, it activates "Slow Charging Mode" This mode is incredibly annoying. Other than those issues, it's been okay.
