I'm not going to say this is the best phone I've ever had, but I'd give it a straight 7 of 10.
The limited storage space is the only issue I have, but a $15 SD card can fix that quite easily.
I actually had this phone back from May to Early August and ended up getting rid of it. However, I just purchased another one today.
Great screen size (if you have trouble with texting one handed, use the LG keyboard feature to help downsize the keyboard and it being on one side of the screen, or do what I did and use SwiftKey).
Battery life is really nice. I can make it through an 8-10 hour shift with mild use (texting, wifi on, though not constantly on social media) and only lose about 30% charge on the shifts I use it most.
Great phone for the price, I'd definitely recommend if you're wanting to save cash, but try out a larger phone.
Honestly this phone is great for price. the only problem i had with it is spotify crashing suddenly but other then that its good

This phone is honestly a piece of shit. It won't let me receive any messages because it says my storage space is out when I only have 4 apps and I already cleared my cache. It also restarts itself without even touching it. Bottom line this is the most terrible device I've had over the years and I can't wait to get an Apple
First I read the review before ordering most were terrible negative review that prevent me from ordering this phone. when I now order the phone it works great!!!! For any one trying to buy this phone and the negative review is hindering you to hit the order button never listen to them because this phone is greatttttttttttt!!!!!! large screen everything I am so in loved with it and cant get enough of it!!!

Maybe it's because it's prepaid...I don't know...it shouldn't make any difference where prepaid or contract. Had since May 24 2016...refilled my minutes and that's when it started acting up..dropping calls..sending and incoming. I'm tired of calling customer service for help that is temporary!

Equil, 29 Jun 2016I dont have an lg yet, but i am thinking to buy one, whats the advice on this ??This phone doesn't have much storage. Although it says 8GB, really it is only about 4GB of free space because half of it is System Data. It all depends on how many apps you plan on having. If you are like me and use a lot of apps and and social media, then don't get this one or else you will be deleting stuff quite often to make room for other stuff.

My mom my sister and I have the same phone.these phones are the worst ever they won't charge they freeze up you have to take battery out to before it works.they flicker. They sometimes cut off on its on goes from one screen to next.speakers sound like they busted.they need a recall on these
it records video in high capacity. ten minutes and u are around 300mb of space
Never had any issues with this phone whatsoever on Verizon. I've actually bought two of them (because I was a dumbass and dropped the first one on the screen) and never been more satisfied. The asking price for the quality of this phone is great. For those who have issues, I must also wonder if it's your carrier and whether they can utilize the capabilities of the phone. If you add a 64-128 GB microsd card to it, it does just fine with applications. Marshmallow is awesome as well, no problems at all.
I've owned "expensive" phones in the past as well, and I've learned that it's primarily just a cell phone- it's not meant to replace a full desktop computer, so I really don't need an expensive one. I also don't play games on it, it's there for phone calls and utility (GPS/maps, looking things up now and then, reading the news, email, etc.) so if others are trying to replace a full computer with it then no wonder you have performance issues.
It's a cell phone, not a supercomputer folks.
My phone keeps telling me to charge it with an approved "LG" charging cord. I AM USING AN APPROVED CORD!! LG told me to reset the phone to factory settings. So, I get to lose everything and start over.
Thanks LG for a horrible experience!
Why would you even have your phone require your charging cord? Perhaps to make more money? Selfish! The whole reason for the standardized mini USB was to eliminate all the different chargers and allow consumers to keep their old ones.
As I stated in my direct message to you, I will NEVER purchase an LG device again unless you can give me a download to fix it. You chose to make me reset my phone. I AM DONE WITH LG!
my new phone wont let me call unless i take off airplane mode, but it is not on airplane mode

I like mine I have a Verizon lg g vista and haven't had no problems. I won't root cause have you seen that fastboot method that's not the proper unlock of the phone and its just someones way of cutting corners. Its like my car door is locked so instead of using the actual car keys I'm going to take a brick and smash my window then unlock it by putting my hand in and pressing the unlock button. I really enjoy this and am not going to ruin it by trying to root.
