(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**

Recommending a Xiaomi device? You're taking your chances - grey market devices shipped from China will not be Google certified, which means one of two things: either you won't have Google Play services, or else the Google Play services will have been side-loaded via some unofficial hacks.
In the former case, your Android experience will be compromised. In the latter case, the entire concept of a web of trust maintaining the privacy of your data will be compromised. I don't want either option.
Xiaomi also manufactures devices that were deliberately intended for the international market, and those devices will be Google certified, with Google Play services factory-loaded. If you get such a device, then you'll have better chances of using the full Android experience without any middlemen spying on you.
But since the only way to obtain Xiaomi devices in my country is online, and often there is no effective way to evaluate ahead of time the trustworthiness some of these online stores. So you may not know for sure if you have the Chinese or International editions of any of these phones, and therefore you won't know for sure if you're getting a genuinely useful device, or a device so insecure it's no better than a paperweight.
I have this phone and honestly it's great. I got it for 120 dollars and before it I had a Samsung Galaxy S4 and honestly I still feel like I'm using the S4. Yeah the 8 GB of storage sucks but put an SD card in and move some stuff around and it's no problem. Also the camera is better than you think. Everyone that keeps saying it's such a bad phone probably has a really good one so they see this has bad specs and immediately assume it's bad. If someone were on a budget I would recommend this to them if they were looking for a name brand and not one of those chinese ripoff phones that cost 80 dollars on Amazon. The phone has Android Marshmallow which is made for phones with lower specs so the quad core processor and 1 GB of RAM run really well with this phone. So far I'd give it an 8/10 for value so good job LG.
