After reading all of the reviews, I'm convinced that LG G Stylo's are garbage. This is the 3rd LG G Stylo. Thank goodness Tmobile exchanged my phone for free...3 times. Now, I'm having the same problem with the same phone. Is there a recall with this phone?
I have had this phone about 5 months. Mostly I like it. Recently the screen started flickering I didnthe troubleshoot of turning off overlays but it didn't resolve it. Sometimes lately the phone will type on its own interupting my message. Also there are a ton of ads popping up that i have to swipe away anf unlock the phone again repeatedly. Not sure if thats the phone or something else but it is annoying.
I had this phone for about 6 months now. I have no problems with it. I see people complaining about the GPS, Im a delivery driver and never had problems with it, we have 16gb of internal memory and 95% of all apps we are able to transfer to the SD card. No screen flickering problems and battery is great, never heats up. People just get unlucky sometimes and gets a bad device.

phone battery is a disaster. plus internal memory is not enough to feed your all apps. i use this phone for stock trading only. and
the only reason i keep this phone because somehow its lucky for me , in terms of my stock trading
Every time i turn around the phones is updating apps the phone come with only 8Gb of storage and takes away almost 5Gb (4.62 Gb) in full for the system data. Thats more than half of the internal storage. The processor will drag every step of the way until u close and force stop a app that is consuming large amounts of storage data. Ive had to disable a few google apps that come pre-installed on the device. I have to set my sms storage to a max settings to 5 for both sms and mms. Basicly what im saying once the phone was active and able to update internal storage depleted faster than i could recover it. Nice phone but lacks internal storage for advance functions. 20Gb should be a standard internal storage with 2 micro SD slots for double the storage space. This is a lack of the customers demand. Im researching how to add or modify the storage ability with out damaging the phone overall function. It is possiable but im unsure about these china circuit boards.
This phone started out amazing! Thats not the case anymore. I have had it going on 5months now. The screen flickers really bad, restarting it doesnt do anything for it (this is not good for me as a have epilepsy and flashing light is one of my many triggers) the GPS never works, the camera freezes quite frequently, it overheats so bad to the point to where i now get a warning notification telling me my phone is at a very high and dangerous temperature and will turn off for my safety ( knits is something i have NEVER seen before with any other device) my contacts names dissapear at least every other day for a few hours and i have no idea who is calling or texting me when that happens. This phone needs to be recalled ASAP

Hi, I'm Watson,
First of all, I've had this phone for about 5-6 months. It has been a good phone, however if you are planning to root or anything like that, save your moneyies. It is very difficult to find files for it. Also the screen has been starting to flicker, which is not that noticeable but it does happen. I have not personally run into the LG's current problem of overheating yet.
Bye, I'm Watson

It's a heating problem, as soon as it gets above a certain degree, the GPS craps out. I always had to have it in front of my AC vent when driving or there's was no way in hell it was working. I have a Samsung J7 and couldn't be happier with it.

At first I was excited about this phone. The screen was nice and large. Pictures were big and bright and the sound was good. The note pen was a plus. I wasn't a fan of the home button being on the back but I got used to it. Then all of a sudden, the phone stopped working properly. Apps wouldn't open. Ringtones disappeared and defaulted to factory settings. I couldn't go online, even using wifi. MetroPCS recommended I do a hard reset. I did it and it worked fine again. Until now. Now I can't email. I can't access the Goggle Play store. It doesn't make sense. The price was good but I'd rather pay more and lose all this frustration. I would not buy an LG phone again.
