this my second phone new to this game but it is lg and they have always been topshelf technology except for lack of memory (no fault of phone) it is a good statrer phone
wellpriced with good features maxed out with a 32gb sd and 8gb hd is more than most people need for everyday use all in all good phone i have no issues with it out of normal conditions
Worst phone ever. Has never held a charge since day 1,EVER, freezes up often, and to top everything off I took my card out of my one phone and put it into this one, I drop calls constantly, even when outside, NEVER ever did that before, it's the same chatr card that was in my phone previously I just switched it out to this phone, now all of a sudden every time I turn around it's dropping calls. Cannot stand this phone, looking for a new one
NB: The Canadian version of this phone (from Koodo) takes a nano sim, not a micro sim.
@egolzz I like the File Explorer app from NextApp, it should help you move your files around.
How will i transfer my files like videos photos etc. from phone memory to SD card??...my phone memory is almost full but the SD card storage has a lot of space..
Bill, 12 Jan 2017Was just told by ee salesman it has a proximity sensor which keeps locking phone continually. ... moreDid you drop it? Is the screen cracked? If the proximity sensor is continuously active during calls it means that its damaged. Has the phone been wet? If its in fine working order you should be able to get manufacturer warranty...If not, you should treat electronics better.
Anonymous, 26 Nov 2016LG does not update cheap phones, youre always stuck with the Android generation it came with. It will vary from carrier to carrier. Some may not release an upgrade to Marshmallow for the LG K4 at all, others may set their own schedule.
For example, in the USA, the Verizon variant of the K4 was upgraded to Marshmallow in November 2016.
But in Canada, the Fido variant is (so far) stuck on Lollipop.
just bought this phone only 100$ CAD was affordable does the job talks texts plays games and it holds a charge anyone who seriously takes the time to complain about the screen res its a cellphone aka small screen what do you expect 1920X1080? 4K!!!??? like common if u purchased this phone mabey save up for a iPhone or Sony perhaps Samsung or perhaps not realizing this is a pay as you go phone your not going to get high luxury ....
Félix, 09 Nov 2016Mine (K120E) doesn't have a proximity sensor as it says aboveWas just told by ee salesman it has a proximity sensor which keeps locking phone continually. This is a pain and prevented me making an important call as l had press 2 and 2 etc during the call to an answering machine IT KEPT LOCKING AS I TRIED TO DO SO EVERY TWO SECONDS OR SO. THE EE SHOP TOLD THIS IS THE SENSOR AND IT CANNOT BE SWITCHED OFF.
shep, 04 Sep 2016my wife just got lg k4 she is 76 yrs old cant use it no instructionsUnfortunately, there are no more paper manuals. The manual will be online. Type in "LGK4 Manual" into the Google bar and it should bring it up.
Horrible display! It has a very low resolution and even worse is the light reflection output that gives you the feeling of looking to the "sun" when looking to the screen :S This just kills the experience with this smartphone. Anyone has an idea of a screen protector that compensates this?
I was going to buy this phone but I have choosen not to.due to the comments, I used to have the LG Leon and it was okish. People should try the Archos 55 platinum if you want a cheap phone but with great personality and very fast even on mobile data! You cant fault it. Hope this helps.
Govinda de Silva, 05 Nov 2016before using the phone . . charge it over night . .
it's essential for the battery health . ... moreBad advice. Never charge full. And further, charge over night diesntvdo shit, this is not nimh battery, lithium batteries stop charging when theyre full.
Kept my old blackberry Z10 between 40 and 80% since it was new, no noticeable degradation after so many years. Always plug in at 40%, thats the best one can do for a lithium battery. How can a Tesla car battery live more than 10 years? Its never at full charge and never empty, when it says empty its still 20% or more, and at full its not even 75%, they moved the 100% charge down sp the battery can last up to 20 years. Phones can do the sane by keeping ut between 40 and 60%.
On this phone can you force cellular data to be only LTE, so it will never use 2G, Edge or 3G/H+? Can anyone test it for me?
TheGooch, 26 Aug 2016Yes k4 is probably getting marshmallow the poopy moto e is getting itLG does not update cheap phones, youre always stuck with the Android generation it came with.
Boris, 18 Jul 2016Does anyone know how to put LG K4 in a silent mode (vithout vibrating), e.g. ho to mute it???After vibrate hold the down button again
christy48, 10 Oct 2016Ive got an LG4 in the manual it says the card slot is accessed by taking the back off, there i... moreUse your nails to separate the back cover from the case, and slide the nail over the border of the case to separate all the cover.
It's easy if you do it slowly
