What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless Does nothing except make it so you can't put it in a protective case. The charging port on the bottom broke and LG will not sell me an original phone replacement part. No more LG for me!!@

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Breaks Too Easily I bought this item. I used it one or twice only taking it out of the box to test it and take a few photos. It was easy to use and set up and worked great! I was excited for future use. I returned it to the box and the next time I went to use it it would not fully click into my LG. The little gold piece looks to have collapsed into the Cam Plus. Although it still worked I did not want to use it since it was not fully secure and would risk breaking it further. I was very upset to have such a wonderful product but have it be so poorly made that it broke after carefully attaching and removing it only a few times and being unable to fix it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great but needs instructions I connected the cam plus and the phone didn't react at all. After digging a while on the internet I found out that you are supposed to completely update not only the cam plus manager but also the phone's software before using the cam plus. After doing so, it began to work as intended. It really makes taking pics and videos easier and more comfortable. I specially like the button for quick camera access. It's really nice to use but needs better instructions in its manual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Just need a case! I really like this add-on. It adds a nice weight, quick camera access, extra battery. I'm always taking pictures. This makes holding the phone easier, and the buttons make camera features more accessible. To be honest, I thought I would just attach this thing every once in awhile, but I'm finding that I always want it there. What's stopping me is that it needs a phone case to accommodate it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from NEEDS instructions, guys. I saw a bunch of bad reviews so I was nervous to try this module after I got it as a promo with my phone. I had to watch a video on Android Authority to figure it out. I appreciate that LG thinks we're smart enough to figure this out on our own, but it's really not that straightforward. Things that are baffling without instructions: - having to move the phone battery over to the battery pack. Since it's a battery pack, I didn't expect to do this. - removing the bottom portion of the phone - getting the battery out of the the bottom portion and putting it into the module. I thought I would break something for sure. - charging the battery. Does it need to be in the phone to charge? So it's a good product so far. I like that I can press a button to take video without getting that initial jiggle, and the same for zooming. I like having the shutter button in such a convenient place. I really think most of the 1-star reviews come from the lack of instructions. Also, a quick launch button on the module would have been nice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't know modules are disposable Im on my 3rd cam plus right now and its dying consistently every after 3 to 7 days of use. Take note that the module never leaves my device and it consistently being charged after use without drying up the batteries Wouldn't bother having it replaced as it takes a long time like a month to get the unit replaced, not to mention LG being blind and deaf about the issues they are having. Thanks for taking our 70USD LG Keep up the good work making cheaply built devices and accessories.

Does this cam plus works with H820 model?

Hey there @jiayi! I can understand wanting to make sure the LG CAM Plus works with the H820 model. It will be my pleasure to help! After researching into this, I have great news!
