This is a really good phone for the price .
This phone is a piece of crap, especially if you use a Gmail account!! DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE!!!
This phone has had problems for the last 4 months. Four occasions of unable to make calls, emergency only 11/22/16. Wife's phone has no problem.
Screen rotation often locks.

I love the picture quality and the default ringtone and the flashlight and the option to minimize or make the screen smaller while I'm texting or typing if I want to use just one hand to type since the phone is so big. I even love the stylus pen that comes with it and the fact that the power button and volume button is located on the back of the phone. No side buttons!! This phone has more storage than the LG G Vista and I can share photos and information with another device just by touching the phones together. Chargers aren't hard to find for the phone. Mostly everyone I know use the same charger I use. I have no problems with my speaker or Bluetooth headset. Love it Love it Love it

The lg vista 2 is a great phone other than as of late i have been not to happy with the way it has Ben actin like when I send text messages and only want to send one it doubles it and sends 2 of the sane one like for example I was textin a friend of mine and I thought it only sent the text 1 time no it sent it 2 x's so I go to delete the second one and it deletes both of them. The second thing that I'm not to happy bout with it is the same thing with the photos when I got delete on it deletes the second one as well and I don't take notice to it till I go through them and repose o I don't have the original of that photo So it deleted bot the original along the second one
Other wise I absolutely love this phone
I recently switched from a Samsung Note 2 to this phone. One feature that is harder to use that my old phone is Call Reject. It is buried under Settings/Networks/Call. You can set numbers to reject there, but with my old phone all I had to do was press and hold on a number on my Call Log to get the options to save the number to contacts, to reject list, etc. This one only gives me delete options when I press/hold a number from my call log.
Did. Not like
Horrible speakers I went to a concert recorded a song crackling people can't hear me when I talk they say my voice is crackling I took it back to AT&T they told me that all Vista 2 phones are the same the speaker is no good they gave me a new phone after I complained about it I have exactly the same problem the speaker in this phone is no good please try I tried recording from my car stereo and the sound is no good
Nice looking phone but my calls get dropped all the time, the battery runs out fast and takes to long to charge

For all the update questions here is the answer:
1. This phone was updated to Marshmallow(Android 6.0.1) in April, but you need to be a AT&T customer with an "Active AT&T sim" to get the update.
g Vista 2 is a nice phone but while I'm playing some heavy games like amazing Spider-Man 2 it lags a bit
I got the G Vista 2 from ATT last month to replace my G Pro which lasted 2 years. The G Vista 2 was $10 a month for 24 months. I usually buy phones that are the last years model because they are so cheap. It had poor battery life until I turned off Bluetooth and WiFi. Now it lasts all day with power to spare. My only complaint is the when it rings, sometimes the screen does not light up. So I have to press the "On" button on the back to see who is calling. I also wish it would ring as loud as the G Pro. Overall it is fine.
davidfrazier, 18 May 2016Is this phone upgradeable to marshmallow?Yes! I got mine yesterday at AT&T and the date on the box was from 2 months ago. It already had Android 6 on it. And if not, it can be upgraded through software update. I'm used to spending seven or eight hundred dollars on a phone and this one was less than 300 and works better than the more expensive ones. I wish it had a bigger battery. But all in all it's the first phone I've had in almost 12 years where there is no Echo or problems with sound quality. And the speaker is nice and loud. Definitely would recommend. I don't know why some people are saying bad things about it.
First when I bought it I was really excited - so large screen, nice resolution. After a while I was pretty disappointed: there are many bugs in this phone, many times you cannot put it for recharging as it does not recognize it, you have to remove the battery to initiate the cold restart. The sound is extremely loud and can not be regulated. Definitely I will be changing it for a different phone.

Have had it a week and I love this phone. Interface, performance, and lack of amount of bloatware makes this phone considerably better than the Samsung S4 it replaced. I am pleased and impressed!
Yes, I bought 3 LG G vista 2 for my family and they are all perfect. Camera is definitely better that 5s. Also the selfi (5 mpx) is great. It is super fast. and the screen is very big. I never can get back to the small ones. I do recommend to buy a used one from ebay for $120-160 cause the brand new from att is around $360 i think.
