    Gorgeous display. Excellent call quality and reception. Capable dual rear cameras. Has a microSD slot and 3.5 mm headset jack. Solid battery life. Only con is that it has an outdated software and UI.

    I like how fast this phone processes on multiple memory draining apps I use on a daily basis. I also like how the camera takes decent pictures in dim lighting. And I have noticed that you can boost the volume of your phone call to where you don't need to have it on your face to communicate if you choose not to. The only thing that needs more work is the air control feature, it might detect my hand gestures 50% of the time. It worked better indoors for me. But my personal reasons for getting this phone was the speed, long battery life and picture quality more than the air motion and speaker feature. It fit my needs very well so its a great phone! I also appreciate that it came with a clear phone case and nice ear buds too, that was a plus!!

    A great phone except for a few things

    When this phone first came out, and I saw people saying many positive things about it, I thought it was great. I never really listened to the whole there is not much innovation here story that some reviewers put out there. Yet, now some time has gone by and we now have some new information that needs to be provided so people know what it is that they are buying 1. We have to take off a whole star because LG decided to use permanent glue to glue the battery to the phone. This decision makes it almost impossible for any phone repair person to change the battery for you, without endangering himself (break the battery or have it explode). It is superglue almost. This becomes a problem if after 2 to 3 years you want a new battery. If you never change the battery ignore this. 2. We have to take off another point because of the awkward speaker setup where you get one speaker at the bottom and a second speaker which is vibrating through the screen, in the middle of the screen. This has confused a lot of people as they don't know how to properly hold this phone, and they don't know where the sound is coming from. Some have also said when they talk on the speaker phone, people on the other side say I can't hear you. Some have also complained speaker not as good as last year's lg g7--you can see vidoes about that on YouTube. Aside from these 2 issues you have your standard LG stuff-hardly any software updates, and in the past few years their phones have had screen problems--that is why you get a 2 year warranty now on the hardware. No one said anything about screen problems this year thank God. I would still recommend this phone-everything else is great. reviews are good, screen is nice, battery life is nice they say, face unlock is there; there is just a lot of good things here, and the price on some websites has now dropped significantly--but when you go to buy it right now, put it side by side with last year's Samsung S9+...they are about the same price right now. And then you decide.
