Would never buy it if I had the choice

Trang, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews

  • Summary: This phone was a replacement through my insurance company for losing my previous phone. It immediately started cracking and heated up whenever I used it. Eventually, the screen stopped worked after about 6 months. So I had my insurance company replace it (for a fee). About 3 weeks later, I dropped it on a carpet floor and it cracked. Now the screen won't work. Lovely. I hate the design and I hate the poor battery life and I hate the poor quality.

  • Summary: Bought this phone a year ago and to say im disappointed is putting it mildly. this phone constantly heats up whenever its in use for a period of time. at about the six month stage it started shutting down or the screen just wouldnt come on when promted. the battery life is poor especially when in use. today it just shuts off and wont come back on while Im using it. u cant do a battery pull or anything..

Poor battery/charge

Dale731, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
29 August 2014
  • Summary: I bought a new Nexus 4 one year ago. It froze up without any warning after 6 months, such that it was no longer possible to turn it on. Many hours contacting Google and LG was fruitless as far as recovering the phone. It was replaced on warranty, but it took a FULL 3 WEEKS before the replacement arrived. They only had refurbished replacements due to no longer making the phone. I have been using the replacement now for 6 months.
  • Pros: poor battery

works until it powers off and won't power back up or won't open emails

editor17, CNET
18 July 2014
  • Summary: I've had the phone since September 2013. Within a couple of months, it started powering off on it's own. I originally thought this had to do with software updates or inadvertent actions by me or from the case. Not so, just powers off. And doesn't easily come back. It also randomly refuses to open individual emails from gmail (my ipod never does that ...
  • Pros: Memory, screen, camera, unlocked
  • Cons: No viable support from Google, powers off randomly

Disappointing

Lobo, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this phone in June 2013. Today, one year later, I have experienced good and bad things - unfortunately there are more cons than pros, so I did not recommend LG to my mum and dad, who just bought Motorola Moto G (I'll soon review it, but seems much better than my Nexus 4, even with a smaller configuration), and neither will I buy my next phone LG.

Buggy, fragile and poorly conceived

Towerhil, CNET
6 January 2014
  • Summary: As a flagship phone I expect a lot more. the silver trim easily rubs off, and the "gorilla glass" is nothing of the sort. I'd read reviews of it cracking after falling in a car footwell etc, but reasoned I'd never cracked a phone. Well, this cracked in my suit pocket on a quiet commute. I bought a rubber case for it thereafter. It was running very hot at the time if that's relevant.
  • Pros: The pros are it's fast, with a smooth screen action. You can do wireless charging, wired charging being the reason I had to ditch my old phone.
  • Cons: It's very fragile and doesn't stay looking good.

THE BOX CAME OPENED

OLIVER, Amazon
16 December 2013
  • Summary: In the product's specifications said it was totally new and unopened box, but when I recieved the phone, the box had been opened and had several tapes, that really bothered me . As well, the inside of the box is damaged, the charger do not came in a new bag. The phone seems be in good shape, no scrapes and wiht the original screem protector.

  • Summary: Just bought this phone. Quick-start manual doesn't have enough information. No instructions on how to close out web pages, make/answer phone calls, text, nothing. When I tried to find and download the user manual, all that came up was the "take a tour" page on Google Chrome. Could be a great phone, but not much use if you can't get the information to use it.
