Compare an iPhone with any one of the number of premium Android phones.
Why would you go from an iPhone to a phone that's cheap, outdated and obviously vastly inferior in the first place?

I have a question, I have the Lg Leon and my phone glitched and then the screen turned black, and even when I tried turning it back on and hard re setting it, it won't come back on. Any ideas on what's wrong with it?

The Android OS takes up nearly 5 gigs of phone memory.
It is slow & cannot multi-task.
I cannot download or view PDF files (even tried with multiple pdf apps).
It is not compatible with iTunes, or Mac.
All in all this phone & Android is a frustrating disappointment.
This was my first Android. It is my last Android. I am going back to Apple. At least Apple products are reliable.
Have been using LG Leon for a couple of months, it's my first Android after several iPhone models. Generally, the phone works perfectly. It has overheated once when Pedometer app crashed, otherwise there have been no problems at all. The battery lasts up to three days with normal use. A bit slow loading with some apps, esp TomTom, but this is not disturbing. The camera does quite a good job (at least good enough for me) :) In a word, I would say that Leon is a great phone and reasonably priced.
phone is horrible. battery life sucks, overheats way to easily i might as well use it as hot hands. camera blury and sucks ass. messaging is glitchy.
Anonymous, 23 Apr 2016Anytime I google anything online it takes forever to load etc.Any ideas on how to speed up??buy a better phone?
in all honesty the only thing that loads pages is ram and you only have 1GB of it. never buy a phone that has less than 2.5gb of ram your phone will load everything slowly.
also you need a good internet connection for loading pages faster. and it may be slow because the cpu is slow and not cause of the internet cause the cpu is the brain. and you have a slow ass brain in your phone who the hell gets any phone with less than 2ghz of processing anymore?
This phone is fucking terrible. The camera quality is mediocre, the audio quality and recording is terrible, the "draw a pattern to text" Swype ripoff is worthless, and voice recognition is a joke. On top of that, I had to get this phone twice. The first one had a SOFTWARE ERROR that caused it to literally just not work. There are glitches and bugs everywhere. Texting is chunky and slow, the letters will all randomly capitalize. There are several lock codes, including the gimmicky Knock code. At least, there USED to be, until an update removed them. It's a damn slow phone. Battery life is decent, at least. It was $150, which is better than most. Oh, wait, Samsung just released a phone for $130 that is far better than this one. This one's screen resolution is 480. The new Samsung's is 720. I do not recommend this piece of shit at all.

If the AC voltage is above the rated specs of the charger, the battery gets too much electricy and can over heated which damages the battery.

The camera takes 5 megapixel photos and HD videos. Battery life is very good. No problem with battery over heating like some are claiming. Conversations are clear and reception is excellent. This is not a video game like I suspect some are trying to use it for.
I like the phone, but fully charged it last about 3 hours then the battery is flat. It also get warm when charging, any ideas?

It gets blazing hot and the battery drains super fast when it gets hot. I was at 45% and one hour later at 15% battery. All I can do is turn it off and let it cool.
Seemed good value for money in the store as it had Android 5.0 Lollypop for only £80. Read the manual, moved my SIM card (it takes mini-SIM cards one size smaller than regular SIM cards), put it on the USB charger from my PC. It fried and has gone into fastboot mode "Loading keystore failed state 5  USB init ept @ 0x8f1df000". Dead as a parrot.
