Crap battery, not very fast but gets the job done

Bob Tognoni, Amazon

  • Summary: I used this when my old Nexus died due to water damage. If you have a contract you are better off shelling out 100 for a galaxy whatever, but if you need something short term this isn't a horrible option. The phone tends to lock up and lag in certain applications, chrome has a few bugs where the title bar will take up half the screen until you restart and it will over heat when you run the gps.

Looks are deceiving.

  • Summary: I would never recommend this phone to anyone, ever. Chose it because my previous phone took a swan dive into a toilet (Don't ask.) and I did not want a contract extension. Cost of the phone for a Sprint plan: $106.99. I'd say it's only worth the $.99. The phone must be on the charger at all times or it is useless. Using the charging port and cord that was provided with the box, the phone displays "Slow Charging" message constantly.
  • Pros: Looks good., Made by LG (brand name), Light, Small, Only $100 (Sprint), No contract extension (Sprint)
  • Cons: Charging port (Cheap), Charging cord (Cheaper), Battery life (Terrible), Processing Speed (Abysmal), Call Clarity (Sounds like you're speaking underwater)

A colossal waste.

Zizzech, CNET

  • Summary: This has had to have been one of the worst decisions of all time that I think I've ever made. This phone was nice for a month, and then it began to be terrible. So bad that the wireless transmitter literally stopped working.
  • Pros: 4G LTE Capable.
  • Cons: -Doesn't come 4G LTE set up (At least Sprint)., -Battery is horrible., -Apps normally have to be forced closed in order to end the battery drain., -Isn't popular model (aka not a lot of cases)., -Weak weak weak weak GPS transmitter.

This is the WORST smartphone I have ever owned

Anwar_Jones, CNET
31 July 2013
  • Summary: Let me start by saying that I'm not sure what phone the positive reviewers have. I purchased this phone for myself and my wife. Both of these phones have the same problems, so it is fair to say that it is likely that these issues are not oddities. The most important task of a smartphone is the telephone calling part. This phone fails miserably. When talking to each other on these phones, we often have difficulty hearing each other. Sounds are muffled on both sides.
  • Pros: 4G LTE, Limited bloatware, bright colorful screen, ample on board storage plus sd card for increased storage
  • Cons: Battery life is terrible, Wifi, NFC won't stay off, serious lag time, terrible call quality

Great phone for the price, but buy an extended battery just in case!

solostar4, Ebay

  • Summary: Just got this phone today, so far I am liking it. Not sure if I like the battery life yet, but I bought extended batteries so I'm not really stressed about that. The great price and good features (like HD video) persuaded me to buy this phone. Although it doesn't have a slide out key board, I still really like it.

A huge mistake

jdescisciolo, CNET
4 March 2013
  • Summary: It boggles my mind that someone would create a phone so poorly. Let me just start from the beginning. I got this phone back in May of 2012 instead of an iPhone just so I would be unique. It was probably the biggest mistake of my life. Right off the bat i hated the phone. I was issued the phone at about 50% of battery, and it died when I was walking out of the store.
  • Pros: its a phone
  • Cons: dropped calls, lag when texting, camera is abysmal, 3g speeds are slow, battery life is horrific
