Lousy phone. Cant move apps to sd card without rooting and rooting it is a bear. Loaded music to sd card and it deleted it!! Not once but twice!! Had to reformat the card twice. Stopped using an sd card all together. I paid way too much for this piece of junk. Main storage space is way too small, 4 GB? Really, come on! Battery gets hot and runs out way too fast. I got a Samsung and its 1000 times better than this. DO NOT BUY!
My phone is very complicated if I turn it on then it says LG SYSTEM HAS STOPPED then it freezes then off and on by it self please I need your help where should I bring it for repairing
Akb, 02 Apr 2016@Anonymous, Pls what do you mean by CM 2.1. I want to update my phone too I guess, it means CyanogenMod. search it on web and you will be able find helpfull information
@Anonymous, Pls what do you mean by CM 12.1 because I want to update my phone too.
I flashed CM 12.1 on this phone and it is so much better. Anyone that has this should do this as well. I went from having almost no storage to 20 GB with my SD card acting as internal storage.
amir juma, 15 Jan 2016My phone on display have word (sorry !unfortunately, WeQR has stopped what is a problem? Plea... moreOk, throw the phone in the trash and get a REAL phone. I had the same phone too so, I can tell you that the optimus L9 (P769) is a piece of garbage. Honestly, take all of your valuable stored data from from it and save it to your computer. Next, get a REAL phone and copy your data in to the new phone and enjoy! The P769 was just a toy for programmers and phone tweakers, nothing more. It wasn't meant to be used as a permanent phone.
All the best!!!

Beast of a phone. I've had it for 24 months. It's held up well for the 2 years that I've owned it. I've kept it in a case always and even though it's taken serious drops all the time the phone has no issues. It definitely shows it's age when it comes to multitasking but the battery still holds charges very well and if I didn't have so many apps it would definitely be a lot quicker. Honestly the ram and front facing camera are my only true complaints. And back when this phone was worth buying they were pretty good specs especially for the price I bought it at.
I've had the phone for almost two years. Before that my sister had it for about a year. I've dropped it multiple times without getting a crack, but I dropped a lamp on it which led to it be cracked. It doesn't have a lot of storage and isn't loud. But, its done me well.
My comment is for it's durability. It had every chance to self destruct as it often jumps out of my shirt pocket and nosily crashes. It should have broke in half long ago as I carry it in my back pocket most time and sit on it. The rubber cover is kaput now, but my LG and me are still clicking and aticking.
my fne just stopped displaying, if i turn it on it displays LG and then just no more display.
whats the problem. it also heats very much
i was told that my LG P769 was compatible for hotspot but i have to have an 30,40,or 50 dollar plan to get hotspot.i need some advice
I've had this phone for two years now, it was my first /smart/phone. I honestly wouldn't recommend it, with only 1GB of RAM it can get pretty slow especially with applications updating to heavier design trends. It is sturdy though, I've dropped it plenty of times and the screen has yet to crack on me. The speaker isn't very loud, and the back placement makes it even worse. I don't care much about the camera, but if I had to comment I'd say it's mediocre. The display isn't terrible so to say but it isn't amazing. LG also branded the phone on the front and the back, which may or may not matter to some. The user interface is subjective, I personally don't like what LG did with it and wish they kept it more stock. The statusbar in particular irks me with its inconsistency. The battery tends to drain quickly when streaming or w/ local playback, but manages pretty decent stand-by time. If you use your phone only lightly throughout the day then you shouldn't have a problem.
This phone hasn't gotten an update in the longest and won't be getting KitKat or anything following. The LG-P769 has nearly no ROM support and unlocking the bootloader is a real complex pain. It can be rooted (I used some shady foreign tool), but doesn't have much compatibility with customization-related utilities.
