I have had this phone for about a year now, and it has been a good phone for me. I occasionally have issues with it bogging down and slowing down, especially on intensive apps, as well as some websites, usually ones crammed full of ads. Beyond that, the only other issue is that the camera is meh. A lot of the pictures I try to take are slightly grainy, plus there seems to be little to no motion stabilization or whatever the proper term is, so it can be difficult to take a clear, unblurred shot. The only other issue is that I never clear out my message conversations, because I like to be able to go back and reread them, so over the course of the year I've had this, I have built up what I estimate to be several thousand texts on the conversation with my best friend, and the sheer number of texts it's trying to keep loaded on that conversation has been bogging it down lately. If I cleared it out though, that problem would disappear.
Had this phone for a week and it sucks.
First of all, the screen is slow and unresponsive, scrolling will accidentally result in opening random pages, it's a nightmare when trying to back out.
Secondly, the phone is incredibly slow. Dont bother with this phone if you want to game, browse internet or making simple documents. A chocolate bar phone at this point is a better alternative.
Basically happy with the phone, good size and all, but very disappointed in the camera. Indoors or low light, the pictures are very granular, spoils the shot.
I keep reading about people having issues with their LG phones shutting down and having to.take the batteries out and put them back in to.turn them on. I am thinking it.may be bad battery connections, i.e. poor spring strength/contact, causing momentary loss of contact. Maybe a gentle adjustment of the contacts on the battery or in the phone would solve this issue. It seems to get worse with older phones, which adds to my thought. Just an idea. Worth a try.
Its a cheap starter smart phone. I bought mine 11 months ago with Verizon. I needed it so I could call from Canada on Verizon's plan and it was the cheapest they had. Bought a good case and glass cover. I've dropped it several times on hard surfaces from as high as six feet with no visible damage. I used it mainly for voice and text, played music to Bluetooth headsets, a little internet, and some race following apps. The battery life was comparable to most smart phones. It would go all day if it wasn't used, would drop below 70% after four hours of music and one of my race following apps (F1) could take it to 60% in 2 hours. The camera can zoom, but it's not easy to manipulate or use any of the camera features. The pictures are OK in bright daylight, but poor in low or indoor lighting. My problem is at nine months, my phone did a factory reset on its own. Verizon said this was a defect and sent me another one the next day. It also cleared everything off my SD card. Today, 40 days later, my new one did it again. SD card is reset too. I haven't even dropped this phone. The only app the ever runs most days is the built in music app and I wasn't even listening today. Just mowed the grass and when I came in to change clothes I checked my phone and it was in Spanish asking me to sign in to the internet.
great phone ....stable and battery life is amazing spends a day + on LTE network and on full brightness
The LG K4 LTE is a piece of CRAP!! The phone SUCKS!! Bad battery life, won't even last a full day without needing to be recharged.
I have had the phone two months now and now I'm having problems with the display. The screen goes blank. I pull the battery, sometimes it reboots ok and sometimes it doesn't.
I would not recommend this phone to anyone, it SUCKS.
I have been using LG K4 for more than 1 year
- good battery life
- camera is all right. nice colours. better than huawei n samsung
-4.5 display. Sleek phone. Extremely comfortable on hands. .
- rough usage. ive been really rough on my k4. not on purpose. but. Accidentally. fell it soo many times. still works just fine.
but buy yourself a good cover n a thick tempered glass.
so far . there is nothing to complain about.
but. make sure u get your k4 serviced/repaired ONLY by a pro. or. . . LG workshop would be better.
LG phones are well built. even the cheap ones. do not buy cheap range phones by samsung huawei etc.
I've had this phone for about a year, and in 2 months the screen was already cracked. (It fell off my computer desk, onto a thick carpet.)
Even an egg is more durable when dropped on a concrete floor.
I dont care what anyone says
.. I think it kicks ass for it's price..got it at Wal-Mart for115 and a 20 credit for phone service! Im used to the Samsung s5 so you cant beat the price. With an extra 340$ in my pocket... Its fast..does not freeze... No stalling, and light on the touch..
I'm assuming that some people got a bad batch or something, cause i have no issues with it! And I know phones! Better than any Apple product I've had...at least it will run.. Not like my door stop apple 4s, nit a singe app is available...even textme..
What a waste of my money
I had an older Samsung"by 4 years, Alcatel 2 years newer than that and still is good... To give away.
anonymous, 14 May 2017it a rubbish fone it always lag and slowIt is low end phone
After having this phone for about a year. I am finding that im charging it all the time . the camera is bad there is no zoom and no options! Battery life is just no go. It freezes up Somtimes and has slow response time it is out dated. But on the plus side it still works for surfing and has really useless apps built in. Have dropped it lots and nothing is broken. No cases available. But untill I can buy a new asus zenfone max this is still going
This phone is a complete lemon. Apps constantly "stop working and have to close". It randomly restarts constantly. These issues arose from day one and were still pervasive after I did a hard restart and tried to run it with all factory installed apps. I got this phone to tide me over for two weeks until the S8 comes out but it is useless as a smartphone as it can't run apps. I guess they are still selling it in order to give people the worst possible experience with a cheap phone so that they go out and buy a much more expensive one. LG is actually being sued right now because these are widespread issues with their phones. Rightly so, because it is illegal to knowingly sell a product that can't function. I never leave reviews, but this phone is such garbage that I felt like I had to share my experience. Buyer beware, don't get this phone even if they pay you to buy it.
