Slow, yes,But for beginner, is a start.Will go to another device once have learn how to work the k4 for now.
This phone it's way to slow .
It's charging also slow and the battery don't last to long.
I paid like 90 $ on it but i think it's not worth even 50 $.
Waste of money .
small insufficient memory,keeps asking me to delete applets ,and will not move anything to the micro sd card,would not recommend
I recently bougth 1 for my mum.
Well actually I gave 2/3 of cash.
Anyway,Croatian tele operator VIP Net is giving it for 549kn if ordered via their WEB shop.
549KN=74Â€ or 91.5$.
Also,Sycell 5000mah Powerbank for Android and iPhone divices is included in that price.
For 480p screen,picture isn't terrible.
For everyday use like phonecalls,textmaseging and some simple games it's excellent.
As for camera and 480p screen,pictures and details are surprisingly good.
Offcourse they are no match for my LG G4 16Mpx camera with 5.5"1440p screen,but that doesn't matter at this price point.
A person that will use it has no need for high performance top of the line phone.
Watching Youtube on 480p screen with 195ppi isn't an amazing experience.
I lowered the resolution of my LG G4 from 1080p to 480p during some video in order to match max resolution of this screen.
Except that 480p on 5.5" screen is 178ppi compared to 195ppi of this LG K4 2017 phone.
Even so,my LG G4 absolutely destroyes this LG K4 2017 when it comes to bright colors in Youtube videos.
So I don't recommend it for multi hour livestreams or whatever,but for ocassional short sessions,why not?
It has everything a phone needs.
Al the basics are covered and work great.
Well above my expectations.
I was a bit worried,fortunately it's better than I excpected.
If something happens to my LG G4,since I can't afford another LG G4 or anything similar,I would very likely buy 1 more,for myself.👍

As of this writing, the OS is slightly less than 2.5 years old. When the device was released the OS was admittedly already one version out-of-date.
The processor is 4 years old now, and it really was already getting is long in the tooth even when the phone was initially released. Kind of disappointing that it was unchanged from the previous year's K4 (2016) K121 model.
This is a 5 year old OS running on a 10 year old hardware. its like buying a windows 8 pc with 512mb of ram.
I dont know why u say the phone Shuts down itself
Just dont install soo many apps
Install Facebook Lite(uses 11 MB ) instead of Messenger and Facebook
and dont install high demanding games on it.
Its made for basic everyday use,not gaming.
Front Camera is great for selfies,back one is okay but nothing special
Battery is great it lasts more than a day( I installed Activity Launcher and deactivated KnockON)
Display is not amazing but it functions well.
I came here because my Charging Port does not work properly
I got some dirt in it and when I cleaned it with thin plastic now it only charges on ONE of my chargers(i lost original charger),and I was wondering if any of you got the same problem.Thanks
Honestly they should rename this model the LG pos . I will never buy another lg phone after owning this for a week. it was a waste of 135 bucks including taxes and it will seriously make me reconsidering ever buying any LG product. it badly skinned and I truly loathe it after a week of owning it .

Notice to all future buyers of LG mobile phones and current users.
I bought an LG-4 H815 Smartphone on 11/06/2015.
In October 2017, days before the warranty period expired I went to the main LG dealer in Portugal; a company called Worten where I reported that the cell phone warmed up loading and blocked frequently. I was advised to buy a new battery. A few days later the phone went out completely, with the warranty period expired.
I was directed to LG Portugal where they informed me that it would not be possible to repair for lack of spare parts.
They sent me the broken telephone and without any other solution, as the possible exchange for another model. I am sure that this will be happening in other countries and on different continents. They just don't care.
The 8 GB ram is not enough to run this phone with Android 6 which takes up almost 6 GB. The phone constantly run out of memory and can not update any apps. Just think about how many app you can install with the remaining 2 GB. It is a cheap phone but not functional

What I like
Speed and Ram are ok, it's not powerful, but it's enough,
Radio runs well,
GPS is accurate,
Wifi and Bluetooth have a good range
What I doesnt like
Not enough space! SD card is used as another drive but wont extend your internal storage. Of course you can move your apps to the sd card but they will move back by themselves on the internal storage on each update! This is totally annoying! Each day this phone warns me for full storage beacause one of my app has updated.
If you dont want to manage your storage each day, dont buy this phone.
I've had this phone over a month and I am very pleased with it. Its a no frills fairly basic phone so don't expect too much. However, if you're a low user of data then this phone is ideal. It does all the required basic functions. Storage space isn't great so if you're wanting to do filming and photo shots then I suggest you get a phone with more memory or buy an additional memory card. If you want lots of apps stored on the phone you will find that emails for example will not update. I did get rid of a lot of unnecessary apps to free up space so the phone performs well. I recommend this phone because its reasonably priced and worth the money I paid for it.
