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.
Shiva D, 21 Sep 2016Its very nice phone to use for official purpose....Is there a way I can set my led light for calls and messaging?
I've had this phone for 1 month and I can press the bottom in the back 20 times and the phone screen won't come on so i can use it. I get phone calls and the screen wont light up so i can answer it. I'm in a domestic violence situation and i have my own apt now and my ex is trying to break in. I'm afraid to stay there because I could be in a serious emergency situation and I can't even call for help because the screen wont come on. If that wasn't an issue the phone seems great.
All comments are going to confuse you only I want to clear ur confusion
This phone is simply very good
Good battery backup

The LGk7 is a horrible phone dies fast charges slow freezes gets over heated All the time for no reason. Screen flickers on and off turns off by its self and back on speaker goes out have real hard time hearing people or them hearing me. This phone is not recommended to buy.
My LG k7 phone is always messing up every day. It will take a spell not coming on or off and then I have to take the battery out. I would like to know what the problem is. Has anyone else had this problem.
This phone sucks. Low storage overheats has major wifi issues doesnt recieve all calls but will get voicemails later plus other things. I dont recommend this phone.
