I have purchased elfino 2 years back can I upgrade its operating system I mean Android system for 4G purpose.
I bought this phone 2 years ago. It worked well until last month.
Last month first troubles appeared
Firstly the OS started with fails, then I wasn't able to turn it on. Firmware flashing fixed it for a moment.
BUT yesterday the phone just died and the pc doesn't recognise it.
It was cheap but I tought it would last longer.
I bought lg fino D295 2 years ago for Rs 10000 .Mobile lacks browsing sped. Camera clarity is low. Battery capacity very normal. Now 2 year later the OS got corrupted . I spend 340 Rs to re boot , now within 10 days I am facing the problem again, lG customer service person in Chennai say he cannot do much again the problem will happen, spend 6000 rs for mother board. I Got irritated. As an outsider I always believed lg a quality product. But its performance and range is very low. So before deciding to buy a lg phone or ac or other products, compare with other products thoroughly .
To all people facing problems with this phone:
There are custom firmwares available for this phone, which really change the scene. Both CyanogenMod 13 and lineageOS 14.1 have been ported to it. Lineageos 14.1 is still supported by the developer and new updates keep coming out. I reccomend everyone whose device still works try installing lineageos 14.1 on it. Battery life will increase a lot, due to the doze mode. Many changes have been done by the developer for lower battery usage while the device is being used. It even supports adoptable storage for apps on external sd (although this might be slow and needs configuration from the user). The developer will answer your questions and provide help. Search on google for it, or go to XDA developers site and search for LG L Fino on the search bar.
Plz my mobile so heat . help me wht i do now.give some suggestion.
I've been using it for the last 1,5 or 2 yrs and i just can't use it anymore. It takes a f***ing century to turn on. It doesn't detect my SIM card. It lags every f***ing second and its just a useless piece of s***. I don't recommend this phone in 2017. Here are some cheap but so much better phones: Motorola Moto G5 & G5 Plus; Huawei P9 Lite. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. It's a disaster.
same thing goes to me, I bought it as a gift to myself unfortunately I used it for a year only :(
The phone is not useful and has board problem. It keep on restarting . Unable to make a call or open the phone
Despite that now (almost 2017) storage capacity feels like it is not enough, the phone is actually really good. It doesn't cost much, but with moderate use, battery lasts all day, audio is good, no problem with wi-fi, Bluetooth, calling. Rare (8mp) camera is good, not the best, but still, does the job. Front camera isn't the best one. Like I mentioned, main drawback is internal storage, since now phones usually get at least 8GB. Also it is a really durable phone. I have dropped many times and it survived a few falls down the stairs, but still, the screen is in perfect condition, phone doesn't misbehave.
I have faced a problem now, but I believe that it is a rare problem and does not occur on all LG L FINO phones (null IMEI).
