I just got this phone through Metro PCS. I LOVE IT!! I had another LG model before this one and it was much smaller and fell apart super fast. This phone keeps up with my demands and has a larger screen for easier viewing and larger keyboard for easier typing...LOVE IT. I would recommend everyone getting this phone I paid $90 for it and it has been well worth it.
For the past 3 yrs I have been an iPhone owner, but the battery is dying, I thought of replacing it, but my boyfriend thought it was better to just get me a new phone. We decided on the LG K7 because of its appearance & cost. Getting reacquainted with a smartphone was a bit of a struggle, but I got the hang of it again. My boyfriend didn't have to do this! He was really sweet for doing it!!!
I downgraded to this from a Samsung Galaxy S6. Very nice phone I must say, and for me it was free through Metro since I switched from another provider. The keyboard sucks, I replaced it with Google keyboard. The battery life is amazing once the launcher is replaced with Nano. Overall the battery life even stock is way better than my S6 with two battery savers running. The screen is very comfortable and natural due to tinted glass. Ram isn't much but it's sufficient with wise usage. Already dropped this phone a few times and not a scratch on it - it's tough. OS is close to defaults with some LG specific tweaks to the UI. Not really any bloat. The overall feel is similar to an HTC after the bloat has been stripped off. Great feedback function. Camera hates low light but otherwise sufficient. Speakers are all good. Actually sound overall outperforms my S6. I like this phone - it's the first $50 winner I've ever seen. We're finally seeing decent low end phones, that's great! Let's hope it keeps growing!

Anonymous, 26 Jan 2016How much is the handset? under 100 what can you expect?For $100 this is a fantastic phone. A little light on RAM and processing power but it only cost one Benjamin Franklin... I cannot complain. Back in my day the Nokia brick (3310) cost almost 200 lol

MetroPCS 8GB phone has 1.5GB RAM. Android 5.1. Calls over WiFi, which for overseas travel will be awesome.
I just picked up 2 of these from Metro PCS for $50/ea. (Replaced Samsung Galaxy Light) I went in the store ready to get the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime. But after seeing this and comparing everything, this won out. Yes the rear camera and screen have better specs on the SGGP, but they were not a big enough difference for me to spend twice the price. Now if you are gonna compare to high end, yes, it will lose. BUT even tho the screen res is low, it is more than acceptable for my eyes. Which is all that should matter, ignore specs and go see and try out for yourself. I watched a movie on Vudu, looked fine...for a 5" screen. I like the bigger size vs my previous device which had a 4" screen. So far it is nice and smooth, no issues downloading a bunch of apps. Wish the WiFi was dual band as I have a dual band router, but still worked with no lag and pretty fast download speeds. Our old devices would stutter and lag at times and seemingly all the time whenever an app was updating or downloading. I have a Galaxy S5 for my job through my employer and this LG stands up pretty well against it. Let's be honest tho, at $50 there is really no risk involved in comparison to the $500+ phones. If I drop it, run over it, take it for a swim...big deal, it's $50. Try saying that with an iPhone or S6. So in closing, it has been great and I really do not regret the purchase.

Anonymous, 13 Jan 2016hahahaaaaaa.... quad core 1.1 ghz or 1.3 ghz and just 1/1.5 g of ram. it is really laughable. ... moreHave you used it? People who go off specs make me laugh. I sat this down next to my friends galaxy s6. Load times, boot times, sound quality, app performance were almost indistinguishable. People go on and about retina. From the distance people use their phones at, barely distinguishable. Pics suck but I have a DV, and I'm only taken drunken selfies with a phone anyway. Keep letting people tell you you need a octo core. The software is governed! That's right Android OS even when rooted is governed! Which is why even rooted, over clocking a mobile device is a thing of the past and only causes masivee instability. Don't get me wrong this is a temp until I decide my next permanent phone but I'm impressed for $50. And I build custom gaming computers regularly. And my lady friend with a s6 who paid 350 with deposit and deductible was a bit bitter ha-ha.
