I ave used the K7 for a little over a year now, I did not purchase it, but when this one craps out like all phones do, I would 100% buy another one. Great sound, great price (love that $300 range), great camera, better than most iPhones which are acclaimed for their cameras even though the LG G-series kicks their tails, and best of all, it just works. It has great battery life, and you can always buy an upgraded battery from LG that fits the phone if you want. Brilliant. 10/10

sanket, 05 Nov 2016whrere is the memory card slot i did'nt find it plz tell meleft side of the phone

This phone actually surprised me its cheap $89.99 works perfectly fine especially if you know how to understand this particular type of technology this cheap little phone works better than my iPhone 6+ the OS on LG k7 is very smooth especially if you are operating on a stable network WiFi ok battery ok photos ok I see everyone complaining about this phone like has everyone lost common sense lol if you don't clear your catch files delete your browser history cookies files etc it causes a loud on the ram flowers the proccesor speed think of it like pulling a moterhome with a mini cooper its too big of a load you have to be consistent with closing applications clearing browsing history etc clearing catch files and keeping up on updates I don't even care for androids and this cheap phone has changed that the lollipop OS isn't too bad I've noticed many of problems with the iPhone 6+ and that's loaded with a ton of Samsung parts and the iohone 7 even the screen is made by Samsung so don't always believe what some people say because they get paid to talk sht disinformation even YouTube is flawless on this cheepo phone its cool .
Xcaliber501, 19 Oct 2016I bought this phone as a temporary hold over til the Note 7 came out. (Yeah I know what a disa... moreMy sentiments exactly. This phone is really only good for someone trying to replace a flip phone with a touch phone. It does "phone" well. Everything else is best left up to another device.
I bought this phone as a temporary hold over til the Note 7 came out. (Yeah I know what a disaster that was...) As a temp phone it worked fine, but it has major issues.
1. Very small internal storage and most of what it does have is taken up by the operating system. I had no pictures, no music and no games on this phone and I still was constantly running out of storage. To the point I could not even update my banking apps. I thought I could get around this by using a Micro SD card, but most apps would not load onto the external storage card. Not sure if this is a security thing with the apps or the fault of the phone. Either way it made the phone basically useless.
2. The camera is one of the worst I've ever used. It was very slow hard to manipulate and the pictures were so blurry to be pointless. It might as well not have a camera at all.
Everything else about the phone was generally good. The screen was large and reasonably bright. I was able to surf the internet pretty well with it. But given how bad the camera is and how little storage space there is I would not recommend this phone for anyone unless it is only for temporary use and only if you get it very cheap. I would not even spent $50 for this phone.
so you get good video on your phone are you using metro pcs im just tryuing to see if its the phone or the service.Mine worked ok for a week and now it freezes up 2 to 3 sec. into the video
This phone is among the worst I have ever had. It started out working fine; however, as each day passes, my experience with this phone has only worsened. I now compare it to the Samsung Note 7, and we all know what's happening with that model. The most angering thing that has happened is that it was necessary for me to turn on the Lock Screen Feature so I could temporarily download an app for a research project I was involved with. Now, the phone absolutely refuses to permit me to turn off the Lock Screen Feature. I do not currently have any need whatsoever to lock my phone at any time. Having to enter a pass code every time I use the phone for something. To be clear, I am NOT willing to perform a "hard reset" on my phone, for I would lose everything currently stored on the phone.
Another major problem I am having is with the storage settings. I am using a SD Card, and have transferred all the apps I possibly could to the SD Card. However, for no apparent reason, apps will move from the SD Card back to the phone WITHOUT my having taken any action whatsoever. Furthermore, there are many apps that cannot be transferred to the SD Card. No one has yet been able to provide me with a sufficient reason as to why this fact exists. To me, this is unacceptable. This has created another problem, in that the phone memory daily sinks below 300kb. This is mostly due to Cached Data needing to be cleared. Worse still, on my phone, there is 3.18GB of Miscellaneous Data, that, so far, no one knows what to do with. Updating apps has become extremely problematic and honestly, as each day passes without gaining some ground on these issues, I literally hate this phone more and more every day. Before I bought this phone, I had the LG Leon, an equally bad phone.
LG has long had a reputation for making quality merchandise that can be relied on for many years to come. However, with the K-7 and the Leon, LG completely missed the boat, making two of the worst phone models I have ever encountered. I am disabled and on an extremely fixed income. I cannot afford to buy a new phone, so I am stuck with what I consider to be a very bad phone. Metro PCS is juaat as ba, if not worse than the phone. When I am able to purchase another phone, I can promise two things, 1 I will NOT even consider LG phones, and 2 I will definitely be changing service providers.
This phone is not a phone this is a disaster of my life .I will take revenge if I meet the manufacturer of this phone not enough memory very slow and camera is not very good. So this phone wasted my valuable money don't buy this
Google user , 29 Sep 2016The LGk7 is a horrible phone dies fast charges slow freezes gets over heated All the time for ... moreI agree. This phone is horrible. I have bad for 3 months and the battery is horrible. Takes forever to charge. Its like its possessed. It does its own thing. I woke up one day and could not make calls. Kept saying that it was on airplane mode and it was not. Sucks
Great phone. Might upgrade to 802.11n router. Why I'll never know. Not a gamer.
LG has always been good to me. Much better phone than Samsung's in the the same price range. This phone never locks up or gives me any problems. Nice speed for average everyday user. This is my second LG and would still have my first if I didn't drop it down 4 flights of stairs. My last two Samsung phones gave me nothing but problems. Slow to respond and always locking up causing me to restart the phone. Go with LG phone, much better quality.
Volume keeps going down by itself...media then ringtone and even notifications..sometimes it will sit there for several minutes trying to lower even though its silenced itself already..only about a week old. LG BLOWS at making phones. Should've known
Rach, 04 Oct 2016Is there a way I can set my led light for calls and messaging? You can find an app that does it for you.
