I've had this phone since 2019 and I love it. As a Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist it doesn't take the best pictures. I always have to edit the pics, however this phone is very reliable and when the space if full I simply reset it and it's almost like I have a brand new phone. All of my images/pics get backed up and I send important docs to my email before resetting the phone. I've always liked LG phones because they're reliable. I love it!!
MG, 10 Dec 2020How is this phone for night time pictures and how do I change the settings for picture taking.... moreI don't even think it makes good day pictures unfortunately , the colors lack sharpness and are rather pale
Jay, 25 Dec 2020Dont like the phone at all When i got it First thing i looked at was the storage and %80 Was ... moreYou are right I wish I had looked at this before buying it because I can't install many apps
I am using this phone right now but its great
I talked to a tech person who told me they sell u these phones and they work for about a year then they break down because YOUR PROVIDER wants you to buy a new phone ! If youre not paying a high monthly bill, they get u from the back end selling u a new phone. I think it makes sense. Greedy gophers id say
This is the worst phone I have ever had. Just a year after getting it (suspicious because that's the warranty) it became ultra slow, crashed on basic stuff, I even uninstalled everything except for messagers like whatsapp and fb messenger and it just crashes on hitting back, keyboard pops up, you type 1-2 letters, keyboard goes back down, etc etc
just problem after problem with this stupid thing
This phone has worked really well for me for the past 4 years, but it is starting to get really slow. It is still 100% functional, but recently the camera crashes out of nowhere and it takes some time to respond to button pushes or using the touchscreen. Although I will say, this is the most durable phone I have had. I am the clumsiest person and dropped this so many times without a case on concrete, not a crack on the screen.
Just looking at this page - can't understand why there are so many SHYT reviews?!?
I got my phone Jan 2020 from T-Mobile - and I LOVE IT! Sometimes uploading is slow but that's bcuz I'm in a bad area. Other than that - no issues whatsoever. Where in the hell did you all get your phone?!
My battery began to decay so much that it only lasts me 2 hours and peaks not c if it was because of the screen that EU I put on it that is not original or the change of the socket

Hmmmm, mine has a Snapdragon 450, not a Helios P22..... I wonder if there's some connection between the super negative opinions and the trash Mediatek CPU that is apparently in some of these.
Mine's been "ok", getting ready to replace it with something that's hopefully alot better though.
For whatever reason this phone uses a 32-bit version of Android, and some apps I want to run require a 64-bit version of Android....... something to keep in mind also.
This phone is really bad, I opened youtube just to go browsing for videos and now im permanently stuck on the loading icon without being able to turn it off in any way possible, it glitches, freezes, has terrible audio, and is non-functional most of the time but this has to be the worst its been
Dont know y so many bad reviews...Phone has been excellent in all respects for 2 years now!
This phone is terrible, just battery is solid
This phone is garbage, just got one for free from AT&T because they are shutting down their 3G network. Brand new from box, it was loaded with bloat ware and even after I deleted tons of useless apps it is still super slow. Opening apps or even responding to texts takes forever and it seem incapable of running more than one app at once. I can't listen to an audiobook and open almost any app without it shutting down one or both. My old phone from 2017 was much better. As an afterthought the camera is also total garbage, very grainy and the editing tool is basically worthless.
I have this phone for 2 years now. IT IS SO GREAT. At this price point, I still can't believe how good it it for day 2 day browsing, social media, e-mail, navigation. It is fast, does bot freeze - I did RESET it once when it seemed slower, it's fine now.
The screen is bright with nice colors. The LG LG UX 7 user interface IS THE BEST ON THE MARKET! Really!
The 16 MP camera is very good (NO PANORAMA though - it's in the specs but could never find the option). Low light pictures are low quality.
The build quality is VERY good and solid, does not flex. I love plastic back cases.
The battery life is VERY GOOD with the efficient Media Tek Helio P22.
EXCELLENT LG PHONE! It's my third LG. So sad to see them leave this business! :(
This phone has been garbage since I took it from the box. Freezes, heats up abnormally fast, system updates are annoying as heck. Sometimes I get update reminders every two seconds. Insists I only use wifi for updates. I have unlimited so have no interest in also paying for a mobile hotspot. Doesn't system update after I go through all your stupid hoops. Still freezes up after it decides to update. Puts multiple apps I don't give 2 craps about on my phone without permission. Usually mindless, stupid games. Of course, if I want to trade this garbage in for a different phone I still have to pay the trash off.
I absolutely despise of this phone. It struggles doing the simplest of tasks like loading a chrome page or reading a fingerprint. The rear camera is ok but the front camera is horrendous. The microphone for calling and recording has no noise cancellation and has terrible quality. Texting is fine just laggy like the whole phone. Durability is good though.
Pros: Cheap, durable.
Cons: Slow, laggy, camera and microphone quality are horrendous.
