I was lucky enough to buy this phone at a store where the girl who worked there had one and told me not to do the software update. So no flickering and other problems there. It's running Marshmallow with no problem which I like far better than Lollipop. As far as performance, my biggest complaint is that it can be a little sluggish at times, but nothing I can't deal with. If you want to use any apps, SD card is a must. The 1 gig of ram sucks, but so far no major issues.
The first one I bought messed up within a couple of hours. It would bring the notification thing down every couple of seconds. I got it replaced and everything seemed fine for a couple of weeks. I have a huge memory card but can't download more then a couple of apps because it tells me theres no room on the memory card even though there is. When I try to download a new app it removes another one randomly. Definitely wouldn't buy this again!

For the flickering/screen problems I have narrowed the problem down to overheating. For some reason all of the google services seem to make the phone overheat, my screen actually touches itself when it gets really warm. My solution was to disable every app possible including all of googles and not sign in at all with google. I download necessary apps from apk4fun website and access youtube from the browser. The phone is actually usable now.
I had an LG update after I updated it phone deleted all my stuff it didn't work no more is not working correctly and it also blew out my 32 megabyte card

Anonymous, 07 Mar 2016I don't really like the camera quality. The 8mp appears to look like 3mp.When I Got mine from Metro pcs it said it had a 13 mp back camera. Then all websites say it has an 8mp. But then you're right about the quality. It looks like 3mp..
I've had this phone for about a month now and the speaker is already broken. Not only that but for whatever reason every single time that I talk to you on the phone with somebody it hangs up. I literally just got off the phone with my friend and it hung up the phone 3 times. Does anyone else have that problem? Is there any way that I can solve it?

Jill, 03 Mar 2016If you just bought you should be able to return it, generally have 30 days.Okay but I've had mine for 4 months. And while that may no longer be under warranty it's an unacceptable service life for a cell phone.

For the first 3 months, my LG Stylo from Sprint worked like a charm. No complaints. In fact, I began to think I relied on it to heavily. Then one day I saw that the Stylo wanted to 'update'. Stupidly, stupidly, I allowed it. Thereafter, I just as well have a PayGo phone from a convenience store. I have to direct the phone to do the simplest of tasks, most annoying is constantly updating the driver so I can link it to the computer. In pristine condition for the first few months, the phone looks like it's been chucked across the room, or slammed onto the sidewalk because it has been. An IT friend of mine informed me that Sprint was fined by the U.S. government because this was discovered to be an intentional ploy by Sprint to goad customers into buying expensive contract agreements instead of the promised 'unlimited everything' for $60 a month. Looks like Sprint's at it again. I took the bait by purchasing the telephone, but I'm not going to be suckered into a trap of a 2 year contract with obligatory conversations with someone in a cubicle in Bangalore on a headset with a three ring binder of placation in front of them to read me. I hate you Sprint. I hate your LG Stylo.
