Love this phone. Got it about 2 years ago for around 25 USD. Still using it for voice calling. (I have another Asus phone for data stuff like Whatsapp, etc). It always attracts people with remarks like how cute and small this phone is. 😁
You can drop this phone and the cover and battery spill out. Put it back and it still works.
The only thing to watch out for is the storage, only 1.5 GB. My unit is actually from South America, so lots of telco apps. I have to remove them as they were taking almost all the space. It is even more apparent now as official apps are also getting bigger and bigger.
I have no choice but to root the phone, remove all the bloatware (Google ones too), then unroot them.
First I remove all the apps except:
1. Alarm Clock, Calendar, Camera, Contacts, FM Radio (sometimes I listen to them), Messaging, Phone, Play Store and Videos.
2. Then I reinstall Chrome, File Manager+ (It can also play music), Lithium (yes, I can read epub ebooks), Map.me (instead of Google Maps).
*No Youtube or Google Search (That can be handled using Chrome browser).
This exercise meant that I use only 760 meg out of the 1.5 gb storage space (50%).
I find that when the storage hits 1 gb, the phone will slow down.
I figured with this setup (and removal of unnecessary apps), I can probably still use it for another 2 years .... at least.
Hi, everyone. I just bought this product in August 2018 for only about $25 (yes 25 us dollar). I found this LG L20 as a totally brand new old stock from an online shop. I remember this phone launched for the first time in 2014 for about $65. I'm now using it as my secondary smartphone. The battery performance is awesome, the phone is small, simple and easy to insert into my pocket. I often used this as a hotspot for my laptop..regard (I'm from Borobudur, Magelang Indonesia)
This phone is really good. This has not run out once after 3 years! Recommend this phone, this is a very good deal, got mine for 0.80 and I can say this was worth every penny. All 80 pennies were worth!
yournickname, 07 Jul 2016How long does the battery last approximately?Had mine just over 2 years now and the battery is excellent.. After its fully charged i unplug it and go into settings, then to where it says battery and it still shows 1100 hours standby.. I get about 3.5 to 4 days between chargers with average use like listening to music a couple off hours a day, occasional internet usage and calls and texts.. Hope this helps.
How long the battery will last is not an issue with this phone as the battery is replaceable with another. If the battery goes dead you simply snap the back off and put in a fresh fully charged battery. This one feature is what makes the phone so attractive as you never have to recharge your phone as long as you have charged batteries to use as replacements.
Bluetooth stopped working. Won't pair or won't stay connected. I bought it to live track my runs off Bluetooth connected gps triathlon watch so no Bluetooth makes it an epic waste of money
The best mobile phone i ever had. Tiny, its'got evrything you need. Perfect if you are looking for a phone and not a pocket computer....

just some last thing to add to my review that i've just found out over the weekend, the lg l20 plays videos in divx/avi format. i was using the phone as a flash drive to copy some films from one computer to another and when i had done i just tried playing them on the phone and they do. no more having to convert films to mp4, just drag and drop, great.
