What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I purchased 4 of these phones from Verizon for myself and my family. Less than two years later and the screens on all four of them have quit working. Swapped SIM cards and started using our old phones again. Doubt I will ever purchase another LG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first smart phone Yes, this was my first smart phone. The phone I had before this one was the LG Env3 which was great. I hated to part with it, (it was still working perfectly after many years), but my friends & family members finally convinced me that I needed a smart phone. Well, after searching around, I settled on the LG G3. All I can say is, almost 2-1/2 years later, this phone is still as perfect for me as it was the day I bought it (and I have not had one problem with it in all that time). It does everything well, but the one feature that I absolutely love is that there are no "buttons" on the sides of the phone. All the controls are on the back so no matter how I hold it, or slide it into my pocket, I can't "accidentally" push the buttons - just a great design! It looks like LG's newer phones have moved some controls to the side, so I'll just have to make sure I keep this phone forever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from #LGforLife Bought some years back. Currently rockin the LG V20. Was a great product. No issues what so ever. Greatest feature was being able to remove battery and replace it with a freshly charged one for continued use. Of course LG finds a way to improve things. #LGV30 #LGforLife

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice phone I bought this phone in 2015. It worked really well for me. For some reason a month before my contract with Verizon was up, it just stopped working. I stayed with LG to replace it. I went with the LG V20. Great phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Battery Life Sometimes difficult to navigate, battery life not that good, quality average. Not a bad phone but there is room for improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this phone! I've had this phone for over two years and I'm still very happy with it. My favorite features are the knock to turn on/off the screen and the three buttons on the back. These features make the phone very natural to handle and use and give it a futuristic feel. The front camera could be better but for a 2+ year old phone, I think it's okay.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Phones are junk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One month after the mfg warranty runs out phone stops working. Third phone to do this. I will never by another LG product, EVER!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This phone is a piece of junk We have 2. One keeps "loosing" it's sim card. The other dismounts the SD card and randomly freaks out. Unfortunately both are just out of the warranty period.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This phone is fantastic! One small issue. Ive had this phone for three year. Never have had a problem with it until a few months ago. I noticed a sim card error whenever i restart the phone with it charging. Also the phone somewhat bends and has cracks around the microphone and IR blaster. p

Rated 3 out of 5 by from When it works, it's great Desperately needed a new phone in December 2014. Old Motorola was just sloth-like slow. Bought this phone and it was fine until early 2016 when people on the other end of the phone would complain about not being able to hear me well. Placed a Verizon warranty claim and got a "new" refurb LG G3. That one was dead on arrival. Got the second one and it was fine. March of 2017, the screen wend bad. Again, got another "new" refurb LG G3. Good thing I had the extensive product protection plan, otherwise I'd be on my 4th phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from overall, impressed with long term use The G3 has exceeded my expectations. I've used the phone for the last 2.5 years and the only thing that broke on it was the glass covering the camera. The camera starts up really fast and has allowed me to take pictures of my kids in motion when I need to. performance of the phone is still pretty quick after 2.5 years, but I usually don't install that many apps to affect performance. The Gripe I have with my phone now is that since I recently moved over to cricket wireless from verizon wireless, the phone does not pick up LTE service. Not the phone's fault since the phone was built for verizon. I can still use it, just the data is a bit slower without LTE. Overall, excellent phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone! I bought this Feb 2016 (secondhandedly) and I have loved this phone! It's really great and I have had minimal issues with it. The only problem I have is that after a year, the battery isn't holding a charge very well, but I enjoy the phone a lot so I went ahead and just purchased a new battery. If you are looking for a nice smartphone without paying a fortune for a snazzy new one, I totally recommend the G3!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Phone I have ever owned! Great Camera, Great battery life, No issues with anything! What's not to like?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pick another phone I bought this phone and the phone stopped reading the SIM card. I know the problem is not with the SIM card because it works in other devises. After looking around the internet I found out I am not alone and that this phone has a faulty SIM card tray that does not hold it properly. What an expensive mistake pick a better phone or better yet a better company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from REPAIRABLE I have had ZERO problems with my phone, except when I dropped it in the ocean for several hours, got back to the car and realized it had been stewing in salt water all day... But the soak in the salt water allowed me to learn how truly hearty and well engineered these phones are! I decided to clean it up myself instead of throwing it away and buying a new one. I took it completely apart and was amazed at the attention to detail! Purified water and a few hours of drying and it was good as new! That was 1 year ago! This must truly be the Bentley of phones! I had no idea a company took this much effort to build something like this. I am so completely impressed that I have begun to buy other things built by LG. I'm looking at the large capacity LG washer and dryer, and also at the OLED TV's! Nothing holds a candle to that LG OLED TV at my local Sams Club. I walk by it and drool...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Smartphone, Terrible Telephone Reception Not a good combination for someone running a business and who uses the phone 24 x 7. 4G speeds great, good application performance, but at the end of the day a terrible telephone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible phone I am one month outside of my one year warranty on parts. I am expected to pay to repair a phone that has never worked correctly. Phone has shut down by itself since I purchased the phone. Now the phone will not power up. The phone can not be reset to factory settings nor can the phone be started in safe mode.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Regretful buy Everything is going wrong with this thing and only had it a few months. I absolutely hate it! First LG product I can absolutely despise to no end. I want another phone but cant. Such a waste of money and still paying for the stupid thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features! Phone gorgeous and strong meets all requirements. Gorgeous filming because of ultra-precision camera. I love it so much.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Couldn't Upgrade Couldn't Upgrade to the latest Android OS due to the phone being unlocked limits the device to be as safe as it could be and the capabilities of the device as well. Had to return the device to the seller and now another LG product has to find another owner...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nicer than lg g2 I got this phone to replace my lg g2. The 2 had screen issues. I like the larger battery and the ability to add storage to the phone. Very pleased with it so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Incredibly Frustrating I bought this just over a year ago and have all the problems that people talk about when they talk about his phone. The only problem is none of the solutions work. From restarting to factory resetting, I've tried every suggested solution with no avail. My biggest regret is being too hyped to return it when I had the chance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome phone with great features I'm very happy with this phone, and even though it is not the latest and greatest phone it still blows many of the phones out there out of the water. I wish the battery life was a little better but thats okay, it is a feature rich phone that has been great.
