Long Battery Life
Excellent camera quality for a 5 MP shooter
Exceptional call quality
Bright and Vivid Screen
Cons Only 1.2 GB of onboard storage
Too much bloatware
Relatively outdated processor
Summary Great phone overall. I have no real complaints about it. Sure, it's not a top-tier flagship type phone but I doubt that's what it was trying to be. This is also for the MetroPCS version of the phone, which is pretty much identical in every way.
If you want a smart phone that actually, you know, makes GREAT actual PHONE CALLS (like phones are supposed to do) then you can't go wrong with this phone. The call quality is unreal. I haven't owned a single cell phone with as good of call quality as this one.
The screen feels big enough without being too huge and not feeling cramped. It is super responsive to the touch, with little to no lag doing everyday tasks. It has great viewing angles, is readable in sunlight (even at only 50% brightness), and just looks good, especially at this price point.
The one downside, really, is it's processor. A 1188 mhz dual-core is powering this puppy. Considering my last dual-core affordable phone was the LG Motion 4G (MetroPCS) and it was packing a 1512 Mhz dual core, I feel a little gipped on the processing power. But it handles most tasks well and quickly. A small amount of lag on more higher end apps, but I've rarely noticed it. And they were basically just hiccups.
The battery life on this phone though, WHOA. I usually unplug this phone when I wake up in the morning, and by the time I plug it back in before bed, I'm sitting on anywhere from 65% to 50% battery. That includes a good solid 4 to 5 hours of use, with intermittent text and phone calls in between. Can't praise it's lasting power enough.
Wish there wasn't all the bloatware sucking up storage space on it. Thankfully I have a 32 GB SD card that makes it all easier. There is approximately 1.3 GB of available storage to the user which is not a whole lot.
All in all, considering the price point and what this phone does, I give it a 4.5 out of 5 stars. I am not comparing this phone to the flagship phones. But for the mid-tier range of Android phones out there, this one is at the top of it's class!
"Great Phone"on by PEACEMONSTER
Pros OUTSTANDING BATTERY
VERY GOOD SCREEN
VERY GOOD CAMERA
Cons ONLY ONE CON, 1.2 GB OF INTERNAL STORAGE
Summary If you want a quality phone without breaking the bank this is it.
I could not find a better option at this price point. This phone does not miss a beat. I was even a little surprised at how well if functioned. And the battery, WOW, longest lasting battery of any phone Ive ever used. But if you are looking for a gaming phone or a phone with a lot of internal storage then I would choose something else. If you are looking for a phone that makes great calls, smart phone, camera, and has a battery that does not want to die then look no further. It would be tough to do better at this price point.
Pros cant tell you as the battery never gets to a 100% charge.
Cons Brought home and immediately placed onto the charger, as the tmoble rep suggested, 18 hours later battery still not at 100%. Off to tmoble store to return this hunk of junk. Cant wait for that aggravation. Just avoid this phone.
Summary never had an LG device before and will stay away from them in the future.
