In short: if i could throw this phone off a cliff i would do it in a heartbeat.

This is the worst phone i have ever had and i plan on never getting another LG. Ever.
Few issues:
- phone apparently is autonomous and 'it' decides when it wants to randomly turn itself off and restart.
- Having to load media every time the phone is turned off and then on again? seriously? the amount of times this processes had lagged or stopped completely at 55 or 97% loaded (meaning the phone and the process has to be restarted again).
- Camera glitches. App will open but will show a black screen. Requires phone to be restarted... which leads to the point above about having to load media.
- Apps constantly crash leading to phone having to be rebooted because the entire phone freezes.

This phone is less than 14 months old on a 24 month plan and i do try to take care of it but i would never waste the money to buy it. Seriously, don't waste your money.

Its a good phone, i have a galaxy note 2 thats pretty big to carry around as daily driver, so i just brought this phone, and i noticed the main diference between them is the camera and battery , besides that , its so snapy as my note 2 , a bit slower while playing games(subway surfers). If you think to turn 4g lte on, is better carry your travel charger with you becouse this phone discharge in 4 hours with 4g on and 12 hours with wifi.Here in brazil, for it value theres no better phone than that. PS: Lg set the cpu of this phone to 1,2 ghz but its possible to raise for 1.5 ghz.

So I'm $30 out of pocket until then, but after the credit it will be Christmas before I start paying again! Phones are effectively $70 each over two years.

Does anyone know the processor? Because here and in benchmarks programs it says that the F5 P875 have an 1.5GHz Dual Core Processor, but on my country, in almost any stores and online reviews of this smartphone and even in the oficial LG site, it says that the processor is a Dual core 1.2Ghz one.

This phone was absolutely fantastic :) it will not be lag if you dont download big files. seriously no lag. except this phone no LED Flash Light for Camera. 5 Megapixel are just fine. 1.2Ghz Dual-Core are just above average. Overall this phone are just good and fantastic :)

Umm if you are from Australia lg Optimus lte 3 looks good and it isn't too expensive as well. The different thing is lte 3 is faster, bigger, more pixel, more ram, more pixel for camera, led flash for camera, bigger battery and comes with led home button. Remember it will only work on 900 and 2100 MHz. So if u want to go with Telstra it's bad. So yeah, maybe look into lte 3.
