    Excellent Phone For The Beginner.

    This is my very first Smart Phone and for the price, it is excellent. I have this phone for (3) months now, and I have had absolutely no issues with it at all. Excellent battery life, no dropped calls, and incoming calls are very clear! Yes, it does have a small internal memory, but you can put in a SD Card up to 32gb's if you need the extra memory. Pictures are very clear when you take them, and the sound when playing music is great. All in all, this is a fantastic beginners Smart Phone for the price period. You can also check your e-mails and many other interesting things! It also has Voice recognition to make a phone call, which is very nice! I was using my old Dumb Phone for years until I lost it (3) months ago, so I did my reviews on many Smart Phones, and for the price and the quality of this LG F3, you will not go wrong buying it. Yes, their are many other Smart Phones with much larger internal memory and more bells and whistles out there, but if you just want a solid beginners Smart Phone which does have many bells and whistles without breaking your wallet, this phone is a winner!

    This is an excellent phone for the price. It has excellent battery life, front and rear facing camera with flash, and lte. It's not super fast but for most tasks it is pretty responsive. It's not a nexus 5, but it's not terribly slow either. I bought this and immediately unlocked it using one of the phone unlock companies on the internet for about 6 dollars and I use it on T-Mobile. It is about 50 dollars cheaper to buy the metro pcs version than the t mobile version. It should work on AT&T as well. I typically use this for a couple hours a day with the screen on or the hotspot and I don't have to plug in the charger. I have never failed to get through the day without having to charge it. I think this had the best battery life of any smartphone I've had so far. If you want an android and only have a hundred dollars to spend, look no further.

    I got this phone to replace a Samsung and loved it immediately. It's fast and each to use. Not to heavy or big. Perfect to slip in your pocket. Nice camera and great for texting. The only negative is the internal memory. If you like a bunch of apps this is not the phone for you. Memory space is so small you can only add a few apps before the phone tells you memory is low. I don't know why they would make the memory so small. Moving apps to a sd card makes those apps run slow so that doesn't help much. I've had to remove some apps So I could update other apps. This would be a perfect phone if it had more more internal memory.

    Over all it's a good phone, but the add is misleading. It is advertised as 4 gigs of internal memory on website but only 1.27 usable. If you like to download lots of app probably not the phone for you (look at the LG Motion). You can install a app2sd for apps that will allow it. Also, it is very light... you might want a case that has some grip because is easy to loose control and drop. The screen is very nice for the price range. Hope this helps.

    Limited internal storage, lousy camera optics...

    I decided to give a chance to this device, but I regretted very much. I tried to find a phone that I could use my apps, but unfortunately this LG Optimus F3 disappointed me!! I can not download more than 13 apps, because the internal memory does not support. And as much as I use the memory card it is not enough to help me, unfortunately. And I think, for a smart phone with 4G capability, the front camera should be 1.3MP!! Very disappointed for $149,99!!

    This phone was a replacement - I had purchased a F70, which was returned because the performance was abysmal - extremely slow, very limited storage space and unacceptable battery life. On the other hand, despite being an older model, the F3 does everything very well. It's an ordinary Android phone but does it nicely. I'm not getting into much detail, as this phone is used by my wife, but what I can say is that she's very satisfied with it.

    Great phone at a good price! This phone has a lot of great features and it's fast and easy to use. Great screen size and quality and the battery life is exceptional. By far the best no contract phone out there in this price range. No complaints! No remorse! Love it!!!

    This phone is much better than my previous phone I can take selfies pictures either way on the phone, I get alerts and the internet is great and I can apply any app without any trouble. I'm still learning how to organize so many apps, I relay love this phone it holds a battery charge much longer I don't have to keep charging it, so I would recommend this phone to any one because it's a great phone.

    This phone has less than 2 gigs of internal memory. Any time I want to update my existing apps I have to delete another less used app to accommodate the update. I wish I had done more thorough research before purchasing this phone. I am going back to the store where I purchased this an have my older model LG phone reactivated.

    Purchased this for my teenage son and he loves it! Very simple and easy to use and has all the "bells and whistles" of the more expensive smartphones. The only thing is that the phone is much smaller than expected and than it looked in the package. Otherwise, I'd highly recommend if you are looking to save money and simple to use!

    No Room For Add-Ons...

    Nothing wrong with this phone in general, but you are maxed out on internal storage with pre-installed apps as soon as you walk out of the store. I bought a 32G sd card, but you still cannot either delete or move most of the pre-installed apps!

    I have been able to begin using this phone with very little instruction. It does most things I wanted it to in a easy fashion. Besides calls and texts, I use it a lot for Facebook. It isn't very friendly with my emails, however. The photo quality is decent for a phone I suppose.

    I had another smart phone before this one and the battery life and processor suck! Since I have upgraded to this phone I have no problem with anything. I am your average user, so this works out great. Getting online is a breeze and apps come right on!

    The MetroPCS LG Optimus F3 has a remarkable battery life, I use it all day texting, calling, internet, Bluetooth, and more and I only charge it once and that at night. The only thins I have to say i dont like about the phone is the front camera.

    Excellent phone and amazing battery life, it's the best phone for the money to features, with the best usable android os imho. Removable back and battery, and has a microsd slot so memory is expandable. Very good phone!

    Does everything I need in a small package. Super battery life. The only thing it lacks is internal memory...you have to be choosy on what apps to install, as not all will transfer to the micro SD card.

    The phone is good. I love the quality of the HD. It's easy to use. But what I hate is the Metro PCS service. But when it's on Wi-Fi it works beautifully. Great phone for the average person.
