Pros This phone has great speed, limited bloatware, is made from re-cycled material so the phone didn't cost much to the manufacturer to make.
Cons I HAVEN'T FOUND ONE@!!
Summary This phone is similar to the LG Lucid that everyone on Verizon has come to love! It has a 5MP camera (not bad, honestly) video chat app you can use with the front facing camera, so you can talk to your friends and family far away. Wireless media streaming (can send the media to any Bluetooth source, and a Micro-SD card slot.
I'd recommend this phone, I can't find a bad thing to say about it. Excellent battery life. When at best buy testing this device, I played with it for almost 20 minutes, and didn't see the battery go down. Was not plugged in and was on YOUTUBE, FB, Apps, all that, and it didn't die. I'd really recommend this phone, and hope my review helps you towards getting it.
"A colossal waste."on by Zizzech
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.
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.
After getting a "new" (refurbished) model, it was well for a month or so, but then began to experience the same issues.
I would never recommend getting this phone.
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
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. Battery life is horrid. 4 hours after taking the phone off the charger and with very limited usage (as in making one or two short calls, receiving push emails from work and gmail) and this phone has less than 30% life left in the battery. This is not the phone for power users, its not even the phone for moderate users. Part of the problem is that wifi, data, and NFC will turn themselves back on even after I have selected that they not be on. I have to do this to save the battery strength for when I need it. However, these items will turn themselves back on within 15-20 minutes after I turned them off. This phone is fairly fast due to its processor. However, there is often some heavy lag time between opening apps and when they are fully loaded. Webpages don't load very quickly when opening the browser, however, once they are open browsing is fairly quick, I've used faster phones, but this one is still ok. If your apps are receiving updates in the background, the lags get even worse and using the phone during download and installing of software becomes nearly impossible. In summary, if this is your first smartphone, you're not a power user, and you aren't going to download very many apps, then this is a decent phone for the price point. However, Sprint has other phones at the lower price points that would definitely make better choices. If you are going to actually use this phone more than a few times in a day, avoid this phone like a plague!
"A huge mistake"on by jdescisciolo
Pros its a phone
Cons dropped calls, lag when texting, camera is abysmal, 3g speeds are slow, battery life is horrific
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. I still, to this day, cannot use the phone on 3G speeds because it drains my battery in about an thirty minutes without use. I don't have apps because they lag out my phone. I don't have music because the speakers are terrible. I don't have pictures because the camera is worse than the flip phone i had before. All in all, this phone was a terrible decision. Its now March of 2013, and I am stealing my mom's upgrade to get the iPhone 5. Please, don't make the mistake I made. Get and iPhone or a GS III.
Pros Looks good.
Made by LG (brand name)
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)
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. As I type this message the phone was on airplane mode and plugged in for 3 hours. It's only at 63% and shut off because it overheated. If it were on any part of my skin I'd most likely have received a serious burn. Running apps on this thing? You're kidding me. Making phone calls? Impossible even when it is charged the connection is terrible.
All around a terrible device. Shame on LG. Shame on Sprint.
