Got this lg volt fri 1-23-15 its not 1-26-15 and i think if i could get my vacuum to suck like this phone, id only clean once a month. I was sold on it being a great phone, only had knowledge of 3LG volt users who all 3 hated this phone. Lesson learnef 3 strikes...., i will stay with HTC... just bought 816HTC must wait for arrival then peace will resume.
I just want to say with all these negative comments ive had my phone over 6 months n i love It, ive had zero problems!! Advice to those having trouble treat your phone better n it might do u better
I had issues with my first Volt. Took it back to Radio Shack before 30 days. Wanted a refund but I let them talk me into exchanging it for a brand new Volt. THIS one was even worse! Pure garbage!

If a pho... moreTechnically speaking, if you rooted the device, you could install an app that can expand the swap file of the KitKat kernal into an additional memory medium such as an SD card. While this isn't exactly memory per se, it will speed things up and allow more to happen simultaneously.
The LG Volt is absolute garbage. I've had mine about a month and the camera has stopped working, it is now slower than molasses, I cannot type in contacts without the screen returning to point one. DO NOT purchase one of these things, you'll regret it....I do. Also, do not use Virgin. They do not support you, only lie to you to passify you.
pizzazz , 06 Jan 2015Ive had my phone for a few months, perfect at first. Now the keyboard doesnt always come up or... moreu said browser shut off and keyboard disappear because you're using a stupid Android OS =) trust me...
Ive had my phone for a few months, perfect at first. Now the keyboard doesnt always come up or itll just disappear while im typing something. Also, my browsers will close in the middle of surfing the web. :( Wouldn't recommend.
The battery life on the LG Volt is unrivaled, you can probably go about 1day and half without charge when using moderately. The phone is very user friendly, love the camera especially that tap focus thing it does. I previously had the HTC EVO design for Boost mobile and then upgraded to the Volt and i believe it is a huge technical upgrade.However i had this phone for about three weeks and i'm starting to notice the browser in the middle of a session it will reset to the home page i tried switching browsers but the same thing keeps happing, also when i tap the address bar the keyboard will pop up or it will pop up about 30 seconds late. One thing i tried to correct the browser issues wad deleting some of the most recent apps piror the the issue, I also moved some to the SD card. I did this about 2 hours piror to posting this and so far it has been working fine.

If a phone runs slow it is because it lacks sufficient MEMORY to execute commands. A phone's memory is fixed. You cannot, I repeat, CANNOT, add memory to ANY mobile device. Adding an SD card adds storage space, not memory. Storage is where things like pictures, movies, music, etc. are stored. You can add a 64 GB SD card to a phone and it will still run very slow because you merely increased the storage....not the memory required to execute user based commands. The only speed difference you will notice using an SD card is the read/write speed of a class 4 vs class 10 SD card. However, if you do not have an SD card installed then the phone is writing to its onboard flash storage at a speed similar, or sometimes faster, to a class 6 SD card. At which point, the read/write speed is not a bottleneck and your accusation of not having an SD card installed, as a culprit for slow functionality, is completely wrong.
Please stop being condescending of others in your review by defending a device using your "tech" information that is so far from being correct that it hurts me to read.
I had one lg volt and it froze constantly. It locked by itself while texting and calling. Got a new one and it does the same.
This phone was great at first, but then it started acting up. I have had it less than six months and I am getting a new phone. The screen locks up randomly, won't let you unlock the screen, the menu and back buttons won't work, randomly restarts, sometimes the touchscreen won't work and you have to hold your finger on whatever you are trying to open for several seconds and then it finally opens, when calling somewhere that you have to enter an account number the screen will go blank after each number you press, very annoying. I did a hard reset and also backed up my apps and info and did a factory reset, still won't work right. Save your money and get a different phone, this one isn't worth the headache!
I had the LG Volt through Virgin Mobile ever since it come out. Mine works fine. I did switch it to use ART but then my photo Gallery app would crash every once in a while so I switched it back. Everything works great again. Comes with most of the apps I just have to have(Notepad,Quick memo for Screen shots, Voice recorder for memos, Flashlight app, File manager, and Calculator with % button. Also comes with other standard apps on most other phones. The camera is awesome, I take pictures of part numbers so small, I can't read them with my bare eyes, so I take pictures of them and read them off phone. I like the size of the phone, not too big and easy to handle, but big enough screen to see things better. The home button is nice. I like having a physical home button to wake phone. I was worried about getting this phone at first cause some said the screen density was low. As far as screen density, It looks super to me. I even brought out my magnifying glass to see what other folks were talking about and couldn't see anything, the picture looked good to me, even under a magnifying glass. Someone must have really good eye sight. Oh, you can move some apps to SD card. And you can also remove a lot of the Apps that came with it. I have this phone LG Volt and my old favorite, LG F3 on Virgin Mobile. I switch back and forth using Virgin Mobile site under my accounts. The only thing I wish was better- I wish they were GSM phones that took a sim card and was unlocked so I may change carriers if I choose to. I guess I should have bought unlocked GSM phones to start with. Anyway, I'm happy with both phones, just wish they were GSM phones.

don't support On the Go cable that is really sad no external drive hook up
My mom has the Boost Mobile Edition of this phone and it runs fine with her 32gb micro sd card.. Y'all say its slow and it freezes this could be because of two things. 1:You don't have additional memory added on the device or 2: You droped the device on too many times. Now I can't wait to get this phone for Christmas with a heavy duty kickstand case and a 64gb micro SD Card

Anonymous, 29 Oct 2014My lg started great but now it freezes and some apps take to long to start that they stop work... moreYes I've found that the Photo Gallery likes to freeze. It had started right after the last major update so I thought it was that. I removed a few apps that seemed to be causing issues on my phone then it all worked well for a couple of months. Now the Photo Gallery is doing the same thing and it's very annoying. VM doesn't have a concrete answer on why this is happening to so many people. They service agents can only read the text in front of them and can't offer any real answers. But overall the phone for the price is phenom.
