Battery life is terrible ! After a year the phone had numerous problems: lagging and losing much power from battery.
Also updating made slower the phone, so it is overrated.
JB 2282, 08 Sep 2020Is the LG K50 ever getting Android 10 update?I have it. Turned the phone on in November to check again and it was updated to Android 10. The day after christmas I went back to using it. Had been using my Moto G7 Power but was missing LG.
Jeffrey Dallas, 12 Sep 2020This phone runs like tinder. It's all screen swipes. Which works out into random refreshe... moreI don't like the gestures either. You can still use the buttons. Just go into Display settings for them. You can also arrange them the way you want.

This phone runs like tinder. It's all screen swipes. Which works out into random refreshes, back paging and app closing. It's horrible. For many apps I use it is completely unusable. FB, video game map apps but it works good for chrome when you finally get used to it. It's awful don't buy it. Worst navigation system ever

This phone is great. I bought it for 150E. Unfortunately, there are no earphones included in the box. The dedicated Google Assistant button can't be remapped. The camera lacks basic functions like manual ISO adjustment, manual exposure adjustment, metering modes and the list goes on. Also, there is another strange thing: While you are in the camera app, you notice that the preview looks pretty BAD, but if you take a photo and you look at it, suddenly the photo looks GREAT. I noticed this strange issue and you can't really fix it, you have to live with it.( see what I mean here > https://imgur.com/a/huzMMQV ). The microphone sounds terrible. Sometimes there is a static noise, and it likes to distort
your voice. If you want to record from a concert or something, the audio will be awful. The mic is always trying to cancel any background music, so it sounds very bad when you listen to it. Anyway, the phone runs GREAT, games run very smoothly, although I ran into some lag spikes while playing Asphalt 9: Legends. System uses around 15GB of space, so you are left with 17GB of juicy storage.
Not horrible but the India gets the W series which makes this look trash... ;-;
You'll be better off finding a used and unlocked LG v20 with great condition for less...

The ppi is too bad.
Don't know when lg will learn to make a smartphone with the common man's requirements at an affordable price tag. Battery atleast 4000 may. A fast charger. LCD display. Some useful sensors. If they don't do so they will also be in the line of HTC and Sony.
software, 26 May 2019Shameful about LG does't know how to make a slim phone.Rather shame to have ugly camera hump
No way LG
redmi note 7 is better than this with same price
bad, 13 Aug 2019Manipulative and awful design. Why need notch if screen-to-body ratio is just 78 %? Bad trend.... moreBut manufactures still add the notch just because it looks cool for the consumers.
Manipulative and awful design. Why need notch if screen-to-body ratio is just 78 %? Bad trend. You can make phone with 82 % (or more) screen-to-body ratio without notch. And 78 % without notch is very simple task. But... bad trend.
LG K50 was released in Brazil as LG K12 Max.
