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
Drjtaylor, 20 Sep 2017I also have to keep deleting messages in order to get new messages! Or delete data and apps in... moreYou can go in your settings and click on apps and you can disable a few oraginal apps on the phone you dont use and make more storage
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.
(LG K4 2017)
This phone has some basic OS features. However this is to make sure the RAM is not depleted.
My benchmark is always running Star Wars Force Arena, and I have no issues.
The power button is at the back of the phone, under the camera which I really like as this phone is different. The power button is not at all clulmsy to the touch so no accidental power downs will occur.
Camera: My model is 8MP back and 5MP front.
HDR imaging, Auto Focus.
CPU: 4x ARM Cortex-A53 @ 1.09Ghz
OS: Android 6.0
Screen auto adjusts to the area you in. ie, brightens in places with lots of light.
Battery test: no sim, wifi on, location on - Duration 12 hours: 9% battery drained.
Playnig 1 hour of Star Wars Force Areana - 40% battery drained.
I really am enjoying this phone. I give this phone a 9/10

Or delete data and apps in order to play music on my Google play music. I have an SD card and my apps are in there but it's still showing its in internal storage? Dumbest phone.
LGK4 fkin sucks for memory! I hate it. And this is the 4th time I'm restarting my phone to send a message in messenger. Ready to smash this garbage phone.
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2017Is it compatible with instagram and snapchat? My friend owns the K4 2017 and yes, it does work for Instagram and I'm pretty sure it works for Snapchat, also.
I don't know why there are so many complaints about this phone. It works very well and does the things that are needed and runs quickly and smoothly. The picture with video is a little dark but other than that it is clear and smooth. I think that for an entry level phone it is worth the 40 dollar price that I paid. I give it an 8/10 .
According to the official LG website, the LG Fortune (M153) from Cricket Wireless (we have two of these) has 1.5gb RAM and has the following frequencies connectivity: GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, UMTS Bands 2/4/5, LTE Bands 2/4/5/12
Purchased this phone and had it for 6 weeks and it would not charge....when returned to LG, they advised there was corrosive damage.....hmmmm, it was never dropped in water....humidity maybe??? Pretty cheap device if it won't withstand some humidity. LG would not even offer any partial compensation. Door slammed. Junk phone...Junk company
Better buy 3 years old flagship like xperia Z3, the same android marshmallow update,better chipset sd 801, bigger battery, bigger ram, better camera and better in every way and in my country it is priced the same 120 USD = 1600K IDR
And there are some local brands selling phones with better deals, arround 1M IDR = 75 USD with 2 GB rams and sd 4**
