My mum is using the Mediatek variant for 2 years. It is enough for her. No problems so far. She only broke the screen glass once and got the glass replaced on the service.
Pretty easy to use one-handed. It is pretty light, too.
Display looks good although not being OLED and having 720p resolution. Low resolution isn't noticeable on daily use.
Battery can last a day (with normal use) although being a 2300mah one.
Battery is removable.
Rear camera is good for the price and time it was released.
Takes forever to charge with the original adapter.
Original headphones and adapter have very poor quality
No updates at all. Still stuck at Android 6.0.
Low speaker volume.
Software doesn't have many features, customization options are limited.
Screen could have been 5.5 inces on the same footprint or the top and bottom frames would have been thinner. Having capacitive buttons on the bottom frame would be a good thing, too.
Battery is a bit too small.
battery is not good and set heat is very high, charging process is very slow
This is the worst device I've ever had. It takes too much time to charge the camera is so bad and many other things.
Yuna, 18 Mar 2019Can't believe this phone still has some security updates i was actually surprized. 😱No joke, i just got an alert for Feb 2019 update (albeit small security update). Very surprising given this phone's age, and it's not even a mid-range.

Had past just 1 year since I bought this phone; the battery is not working well. I have to waste hours and hours to recharge this until get at least 40%, It's a waste of timeeee! The camera quality is reaaly bad too, I am desapointed with it, because I bought this thinking about the battery life!!
Found an LG K430Y. Does it use the Mediatek chipset or the Snapdragon one?
Using LG K10 LTE. Many times facing issue with browsing. Does not connect to internet.
What to do?

ven, 18 Dec 2018Lol, mine lasted for a year of use. Been playing heavy games till it gets hot. I was shocked ... moreMost fragile? It has fallen about hundred times and my screen is like new, except those tiny practically invisible scratches on screen.
using more than 3 years, works fine till now
but some issues like
-Less internal storage space, always need to clear some space
-using data will consume more battery than wifi
-Camera works fine only in bright location otherwie poor image quality
- Heating issue while playing games

I was shocked when there was a safety feature when the temperature exceeded tolerable level. Didn't know it's thermometer works. Unlike samsung phones.
The most fragile phone I've ever seen..... A fall from 3 feet cracked my phone completely
XDA development is poor. Screen is not that sharp. The screen adhesive melted in 2nd day of use, the adhesive also smells when the phone gets hot, and the buttons on the back became hard to press, which are signs of poor quality. Battery drains so quickly, about 2hrs to 2hrs:30min. No gyro, and no OTG support. Never had any single OS update (K430-MTK variants), just some software updates that made the device slower.
This phone is riddled with problems. I've replaced this phone twice and the same problems occurred each time. Sometimes you need to restart the phone or else the call function doesn't work. Call quality is always very grainy. But also on each phone my battery percentage always freezes on a specific number. For over a year now it has been frozen at 79% and I have no clue if it is dying or not.
All they needed to do is to create it waterproof whit case in local shops now I haw to live whit phone who does not work microphone and a broken screen. Thanks shit LG for creating spy device whit no value.
