Not worth the hassles

livibits, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
27 June 2014
  • Summary: This phone started working great when I first got it--about more than a year ago. Internet is nice, and most apps work great. However, what started to annoy me is that the buttons on the screen randomly stopped working and I had to press it repeatedly with the one next to it in order for it to work again.

Crap phone

J. hollandsworth, Amazon
27 January 2014
  • Summary: I was so excited to get with the times and get a smart phone, but not wanting to spend $200+ I opted for this LG. I don't mind the phone, when it works it does what it's supposed to. What I don't like about it is- it's wiped out all my contacts twice in the past 1.5 years, it does goofy things like turn itself on and off out of the blue, response time when touching an icon is slow which may be processor related, if you keep your music on an external card and set a song...

Extremely Disappointed in Voice Quality

rmckim, Amazon
28 November 2013
  • Summary: If your present NON smart phone has only 1 or 2 bars, this phone will not be voice serviceable to you. My 4 year old Samsung Mantra flipphone had only 1 or 2 bars and worked extremely well. Activating this LG resulted in reception & performance so poor that I reactivated the Samsung again. Since the LG is 4 years newer I figured that it HAD to have at least the same or better performance. Not so. At least with smartphones, it seems that you do get what you pay for.

Virgin Mobile cannot be trusted with your credit card.

Jungle "calroses", Amazon
28 June 2013
  • Summary: I ordered a phone, but they sent me two and charged me for both. I followed their procedures to return one phone, still unopened. I have called every week for two months and they first claimed not to have received it (so I sent the delivery confirmation). Now they say they found a record in their computer about a phone that came back missing some accessories.

extremely poor baterry in this phone

cyndy lewis, Amazon
28 January 2013
  • Summary: the battery is extremely poor has an extremely short life.. I have to keep it on the charger at all times as it goes off as the baterry wears down without even using it. I feel I cannot even carry it as the battery goes dead when you really need it in than 4 hours and less . As far as the size of the phone I like. It is also very hard to find covers for it in stores. I would return it but I have already gotten my contacts and apps set up. Would never by another one.

Great phone except for the shutting off problem.

Steve, lg.com
20 November 2012
  • Summary: I liked this phone at first. It is a good value for an Android phone with OK battery life and really good camera. The only problem I have with this phone is that it will turn off about once a day requiring the battery to be removed to get it to turn back on. This will happen regardless of battery life. Warranty requires that the phone be sent in for repair which will leave me without a phone for a week or two. I would recommend buying a different phone.

battery overheats

tx-gal, Amazon
19 July 2012
  • Summary: I did not have a good experience with this phone. Returned it, as the battery overheated and auto shut the phone. Even after turning off ALL APPS, the battery still overheated and shut the phone. Maybe it was just a bad piece i received.
