I think metropcs sold me rather a very fragile phone, the aristo 2... Or a phone case that holds moisture. Ive had this phone for 3 months and its totally messed up. My 1 year old baby chewed on the phone with case for 30 seconds... With other phones it never caused a problem... However this phone was water damaged right away. Outer speaker quit working(music,ringer) I had to take the case off and dry it out. Dropped it once and the screen is now cracked up... The volume began working again after a few days..... Put the original phone case back on... 2 days later no volume again without further water damage at all.... A couple days later havent dropped it and further problems with sudden screen discoloration..... This phone is too fragile.... Ive had phones last me for years!!!!! And they went through much worse multiple times!!!!
I love LG phones. This is my 2nd one and both, the Aristo 1 and 2 have been amazing! I would never have believed this was a "budget" phone! Now when I see people with Iphones and $800 Samsung's, I laugh inside and think "Wow? What a Dumbass! You spent all that money and my $59 Lg is as good or better! Plus I had $741 leftover to buy a Fender Stratocaster and a new Callaway Driver!" But Seriously! I've been 100% satisfied with the Lg Aristo line of phones!
I love this phone!! I think its one of metro pcs best phones the camera is great battery life great screen size i looove (its big) touch sensor is good i love it happy i picked this one and i got it for free cant beat that !!
Just got this phone and it is surprisingly performing well. Nice display, camera, speed, feel and especially battery life...one thing that I either missed or can't figure out is the LED indicator. On my Galaxy and other phones I've experienced, when a message comes in that you haven't seen, it will usually have something blinking so you know. This phone doesn't do that. Nor does it have any indicators that my charger is hooked up to it...Anybody have the same issue or did I miss something?
I had this phone for two months. It looks fantastic with my new Androgate case on. Love it so much!

Turn off the wifi to receive images and group texts via 4G. It's annoying, but my Moto E4 has the same issue
I love this phone, I had this phone since April 28th, 2018, its going strong still, but the most worst error I have is when someone tries to text me a picture it doesn't download, or when some text me it doesn't work. Also, it sends seperate messages when someone is typing in a group chat.
This phone cannot be beat for the price. No glaring issues. I've had it for a month and it is still reasonably fast with no hangups or glitches. Anyone knocking this phone is not talking about VALUE. If you have no basis for comparison, taking cost into consideration, then your review is worthless and helps nobody.
I hate this phone. In less than one month ive had more issues than I did with all the phones I've owned in 10 years. At this point it's minor compared to everything else but when I'm outdoors I can't see the screen. Theres no physical home button and the one on the screen is glitchy where SOMETIMES it takes me back to the home screen but most of the time it freezes the screen. To use several apps like Maps I had to go in through developer options and program it so the GPS would work. That's not something I should have to do. It also does not switch to wifi automatically.
When I receive images through text they usually won't download, which is a huge issue because my bosses need to send me images constantly. As of yesterday when I went to the store because none of the apps, calling, or messaging worked they said the sim card slipped out. No one's touched it since they installed it on store. They said several people recently came in with the same issue, and that I wouldn't have any more issues. Same issue with pictures and a portion of my apps won't load.
The one good is the battery.
It was free when I switched and my Android of 4 years was starting to have a few glitches, the aggrivation of having to go on youtube and try and fix this thing, and running it to the store is not worth it.
thevadermanstarwars, 24 May 2018cool phone but not a iphone tho And it costs five times less than average iPhone. Whats the point of your comparison?
Got this phone through Metro PCS for free. Then I rooted it (which is very easy to do for those or are into rooting and jailbreaking), disabled bloatware, overclocked it, and Installed Nova Launcher with a sick Icon Pack.
The phone is now fast as heck and perfect. I unlocked it as well (after 4 months Metro allows this if you call and ask them to do it), then switched carriers. Now I pay $15 a month, have a sexy phone that is awesome and the world is nothing but rainbows and sunshine.
I own this phone. Very good phone for the price.. Camera, display, touch response, battry life... Everything works smooth and awsome budget phone. Love it..
