So I recently bought the K7 last month after the G4 gave me the defect of the whole boot loop where i can start up the phone but only be shown the start up screen with the mobile carrier logo and LG symbol but then black screen. I have to say this phone does suck and LG should start fixing their little defect problems because i cant seem to stay connected to my mobile carrier service and i get switched from 4g lte , to 4g, then 2g, and then searching for signal and sometimes no signal. My mobile carrier says my coverage is good . Has anyone experience this type of problem? if so what is your solution for this? thank you in advance.
I absolutely love this phone I've tried to update with the 3 new phones who did stand up to the quality and all the great things I've been able to do with this phone . I have been able to totally customized my ring tunes,save my music(most important) save my pictures just everything but after 1 1/2 it 's not holding a charge so now I have to either get a new battery or phone and unless the next phone can do all this does I'll stay with my LGK7
This phone truly, utterly sucks!!!! My biggest gripe is the lack of audio. The volume with headphones is so low it is practically useless using headphones. Up until this phone I had pleasant experiences with LG, now I just want my Samsung back. Just an overall crap audio experience. Waste of money.
I am finding it very difficult to download apps as it keeps coming up within xonnection timed out. I have both data and wireless. Can anyone help as this is driving me nuts. Thank you
The k7 is good. Its better than the iphones and KICks g4 and 5's ass.CAmera is good. etc.............
I love my LG k7 but when I put my earbuds in the screen goes to the google screen does it happen to anyone else?
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

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 .
AnonD-599753, 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.
