    Bright colorful screen

    When I first bought this product I was not sure of the quality, I've had many of Flagship phones before and just could not justify having something in my hand that could break so easily that cost almost $1, 000 so I took a leap of faith and bought this phone for Cricket and I have for the most part been fairly satisfied with the exception of Wi-Fi disconnecting intermittently but that could definitely just be something with my internet. the screen is bright and colorful and the layout is very easy to use and the phone overall is a good size for the price. I would recommend this phone to anyone who is not looking to spend an exorbitant amount of money and still wants a decent phone. I'm only giving it 4 stars because it still is only 16 gigs and the issues I was having with Wi-Fi disconnecting. Otherwise we'll worth the $$$

    Great Secondary Device for Work

    I bought this device for the specific use as an input device for field work. I didn't want to use my regular phone and kill the battery. I also would have no issues if it got damaged on the construction site. Wow, what a great little device (Compared to my Note 8). It is basic but quickly runs all the apps I require for work. GPS works great and the camera is pretty good. I would consider this as a backup or great device if you didn't want to spend a lot or get locked into a contract. It is not a Galaxy S8 or iPhone but it is a fraction of the cost. I run it through WiFi on my other phone without issue. Use Google Voice and Hangout Dialer.

    I bought this for my tween aged son. It's pretty decent for what he needs a phone for. I love all the filters and camera features of LG. The only thing that's really annoying is all the ads that he gets. We tried deleting the app that causes them and we can't. We ran virus software and it was clean. Why on earth would a phone need ads before he opens a phone call or anything else. Other than that good phone.

    The power button is on the back, which takes a little getting used to. I don't like that ALL the apps are on the home screens. I prefer only having frequently used app shortcuts on the home screens, and going into settings to access rarely used apps. If you accidentally delete a shortcut to an app, there is NO way to open that app without uninstalling and reinstalling it. Very annoying.

    I just left Verizon and needed a spare phone without the high charges attached. Deciding if I'm going to try AT&T next. This is fairly small phone, but I'm able to navigate my way around. Helps one appreciate the small stuff! They had a sale price on the phone but because it was not there where the service started, I couldn't apply the deal.

    Screen broke and nothing happened to make it break. It was just laying on the table nobody around or in the house, came back inside the house and screen was cracked. Luckily I bought a replacement warranty hoping it’s covered under it

    Decent phone but the specs listed are dead wrong. It has a 5" screen not 5.5",and the front camera is 3mp not 5mp. Same body as a lg k8 (2018). Needs to be better editing for these product reviews.

    I really just wanted to find a phone that was both cheap and sufficient in storage, and I think that this was efficient at accomplishing both. It's fast, great camera, good storage...it's a steal for it's value.

    I use phone mostly for weather, news, etc. It starts quickly, connects & brings up websites quickly. I don't use Facebook or other big CPU hogs much, so I can't say about them. For what I need, I'm happy.

    Great phone for a pre-teen/teenager, gives you parental control, so you can monitor and access the phone anytime. Definitely get a case/screen protector.

    We bought this phone for our 10-year-old son for his birthday, it has an awkward designed and setup, ultimately, we should have just stuck with the Samsung brand.

    I bought this for my fiance. She said it has much better battery power than her previous phone, but I've seen it act just as temperamental.
