    The phone is very functional and has a verity of features. The devise has a great screen quality and the battery life seems to last longer that most smart phones sold my MetroPCS. The phone is a decent compact size that feels conferrable in the palm of the hand. The phone can seem somewhat thick and a little heavy when compared to most smarts-phones on the market with similar screen size but those same qualities are what makes it feel sturdy when holding. The 5 meg back camera works great and has a nice strong flash. As of now the phone I'm quite impressed with this device having owned previous higher priced smart phones from MetroPCS. The LTE 4G network work great in my area making this device quite functional. If this device had a slide out keyboard it would of allowed for a bit more space when texting but even without it texting is manageable. The touchscreen is very responsive and feels very smooth when scrolling thew pages or pictures. The only thing I dislike on this dice is when texting the keys can feel a bit close together when using the LG screen screen keyboard. Lastly when pressing the caps lock button more often than not the suggested text language option gets pressed and caused the setting to change. It takes about five clicks to get back to the english setting, it can be a bit annoying but the more i use it the less i find this happening. Over all this phone is a great device for a LTE 4G/3G MetroPCS phone and its a plus that it has features that aren't typically found in mid price range phones.

    I bought this phone for my wife because she's using metropcs and didnt want to switch. This phone is by far the best value you can get on Metro. First let me state its not a Galaxy S III or even an SII. But it is a good smartphone and it doesn't cost $500. It comes with a modern phone os (ice cream sandwich) and a snappy processor. I own a iPhone 4S myself and was surprised at how well this phone stacked up against mine. there's no noticeable lag or stuttering on this phone and apps launch very quickly. This camera is not nearly as good as the 4s but is still a decent camera. Battery life on this camera is not great. My wife struggles to get through the day on a single charge and usually has to charge her phone up by 5 pm or else its dead. The screen quality is not great either. It's low res and compared to an iphone or galaxy the screen looks washed out. Though, this probably is why the phone is so responsive. The casing is plastic and feels sort of cheap. But we paid $130 for this phone and compared to what I paid for my iphone or the cost of a galaxy sIII this phone is a bargain. You get a lot of bang for your buck with this phone.

    one of the best metro pcs phones

    this is one of my first metro pcs phone and I have to say it's good phone on metro service. the good is it is very speedy dual core cpu 1.2ghz with android 4.0 ics none of the metro pcs phones have ics on them most have 2.3 gingerbread os. the amout of features and compatability were very good alot of storge for apps and not alot of crashes. also 5mp camera is decient its not the best but just enough to take awesome pics. its custom touch screen is neet you can customise the lock screen etc. also the battery last all day. the screen is pretty good crisp display but a bit small to see or type. metros call quality was decient no dropouts or anything. 4g is quick if you get it in your area. the only disappointment was the speakerphone isn't quite loud enough but a Bluetooth headset helps alot. the storage holds alot of apps I have 16 apps and counting most cheap phones run out of space quickly. overall nice phone

    This phone has front and rear facing cameras that are decent. (ok) I got a great deal with Best buys price matching...and only paid $50 bucks...which saved me a ton over the iphone (which is what I would have liked to be able to afford). This phone charges fast, has folders for organizing apps and an easy way to close all apps (without having to download a foreign app killer). It's less expensive than other phones with less features, and has quite a few of the features that I wanted an iphone for. It did freeze on me once (had to many things going on at once- just took out the battery and it been fine since) and Camcorder has incorrectly sinked audio and video (this happened once yesterday). All in all I give it 4 stars for great price and over all performance so far.

    This is truly a great phone. For 50 dollars, it's almost free. Your getting why more than what you paid for. Dual core processor, Ice Cream Sandwich, 5 megapixel camera with 1080p, etc etc and so on. The processor orthe CPU. Is strong and better than the overpriced yesterday's technology IPhone 5. Unless you don't like the 3.5"screen, go for the LG Spirit. But the LG Spirit is 269.99+ tax. And if you need something with better screen quality. Then buy a S3 FOR 499.99$ plus tax. Hope I made my point. For 50$ your not to far from a S3 . Over all MetroPCS is a great service. For 40$ a month and unlimited data. Thank you MetroPCS.

    Great Mid-Range Phone

    This phone can hang with the big boys. When it comes to the top of line devices like the Samsung S3, the LG Motion is on par with S3. And i'm not saying this because I own the phone and i'm sprung off it. My wife owns the S3 fits in her purse just fine, I on the other hand don't own a purse LOL and i work in the Construction field so having such a delicate phone like the S3 would not go to good. But to sum things up the only difference would be the screen size and resolution, but performance wise things are about equal the LG Motion runs the same games the S3 can. Just youtube search "LG Motion vs Samsung S3" I'll leave the url

    Great Phone!

    I love mine, but for me it was a glance into the smartphone world. I love the camera, the functionality and everything about it. EXCEPT the size. My hands are.a little big for it making typing harder and my hands cramp after a while. Also, on MetroPCS service, when I go to my hometown I may as well nit have a phone at all.... It doesnt give me 4G Speedd and pictures do not come in. My final complaint is poor batterY life. I am virtually unable to use my data. I if I do so my battery will die in 3 hours.. No joke. I'm going to upgrade to the S3 through Verizon next week!!!.

    I've owned this phone for 2 months. Love it and was glad to make this choice. I had used the Android Motorola prior to purchasing no contract phones. Frustated with the cheaper no contract phones, I was ready to back to the higher end phones, glad I didn't. This phone is at least if not better than my old android. Has all the option I need for half the price of contract phones.

    Best phone for the price

    The LG Motion is simply the best phone you can get for the price. Not much more that can be said. It's a quality phone. Metro PCS is as good as it gets for the price as well. It's cheap and as long as you don't live in the country or something, coverage will be fine. I got a Motion 4 weeks ago and I just ordered one for my girlfriend, but hey, she's got a great booty!

    I wanted to see how the service was. I was thinking of switching all my phones over to metro pcs. Got this for my 72 year old mother to beta test. The key board is a little to small, the 4 g is ok for surfing the web to slow to watch video. I'll keep the Droid Razr and Verizon for myself for business use however this is a good personal use phone or good secondary phone and service. Worth the price.

    It Is A Great Phone For A Teen, In My Opinion, It Was Everything I Was Looking For In A Phone For Me. I Rarely Ever Get A New Phone, And I Am Switching From The Samsung Admire, So It Was The PERFECT Upgrade. I Even Told My Friend About it. And She Loves it As Well

    I bought this phone as a gift to my mother, to replace her three year old phone. setup was very easy and the size is compact. Nowadays it is becoming harder and harder to find a phone with this form factor since most phones the screen size is 4.5 and larger.

    Overall, this is a good 1st smartphone for my wife. It wasn't expensive and its small enought to fit into her purse. The battery life is awful and the camera is just OK.

    I love this phone. MetroPCS $40 a month unlimited works for me. I have not gone past the 500 MB 4g limit and even then it still works with 3g. I am very very happy so far!

    I bought 2 of these as gifts for my grand children. They requested this particular phone and were thrilled to get them. I have not heard a single complaint.
