justAhomie, 04 Jul 2015Is anybody experiencing slow data i open up my txt app and takes forever to open also my other... moreI just got one for free at T-Mobile. I had a LG G3 that I really loved but it got stolen. I decided that I would take advantage of their 2 lines with unlimited everything offer and get a second phone to tide me over for two weeks until I could afford to pay the $175 to get my 32GB/4GB Ram replaced. I am a power user and you would never believe how many apps I had on my LG G3 and what I did with it. That is probably the biggest reason that I hate this LG Leon. I am too spoiled and expect too much. But I think these days, 1GB of ram just doesn't cut it. For that day only, they were giving them away. Do you think they would do that with a LG G4? An iPhone? Samsung S6? The fact that they were giving them away, I think says it has problems. I cannot believe how many problems I am having with it and how slow it is. It's just going to be a back up phone. So I guess I can deal with it for another week. Not impressed. At all, even for a mid level phone. I had an LG F60? That did much better.
sprinkles, 07 Jul 2015I had the same decision to make. I will tell you the f60's camera is superior and you can expa... moreBut do yo notice a huge difference between the lollipop and kitkat. Also is the camera on the f60 a whole lot better than on the Leon. If it is I was thinking about getting the f60 with an SD card and upgrading the kitkat yo lollipop.also have you experienced any problems with the leon
cant decide, 06 Jul 2015i have been trying to decide which phone to get from metropcs and it has been hard to choose. ... moreI had the same decision to make. I will tell you the f60's camera is superior and you can expand the memory to 32gigs with an SD card. My fiance has the f60 while I chose the leon which is comfortable for smaller hands/frames. Good luck.
i have been trying to decide which phone to get from metropcs and it has been hard to choose. its been narrowed down to the lg leon an lg f60. the leon has lollipop but a bad camera and the lg f60 has small storage and kitkat but has 1080p and a decent camera. WHICH SHOULD I GET. I AM SO LOST

konyi, 21 Apr 2015It does not have :(Just bought a new one...YES IT DOES...Maybe LG is changing things as they sell the older units???
masterslasher, 05 Jun 2015I just upgraded from the f60. Has anybody else had any issues with the sd cards? On my l70 or ... moreWhy on earth would you call a Leon an Upgrade from a f60...I'm taking my Leon back for a full refund to get the better f60 camera...can't stand the Leon being out of focus on EVERY PICTURE...I'd rather pay money than deal with FREE FUZZY PICTURES...I now have to carry my 4 yr old 39$ LG ms695 to get quality pics I can actually see detail worth printing or posting...its like a bad pair of shoes 😄
bob, 19 Jun 2015what I observe is dat this LG Leon if u receive music via sharing media app it won't play on d... morePhone has a pretty long battery life, pretty long time to charge the battery, but the CAMERA ABSOLUTLY SUCKS!!!No matter what you take a pic of the outcome is fuzzy detail...I'm used to an auto focus LG MS 695...3-4 yrs old and the pics are 10 times the clarity in detail...The leon cannot take a picture of a business card and be readable...focus on less than 3' does not exist...the rest of the pics do not enlarge with anything close to 5 MP...Reguardless of the fast speed...ocasional freezing up...I like theLeon...BUT I WILL BE RETURNING IT TOLMORROW...WHAT GOOD IS A PHONE WITH A LOUSY CAMERA...The LG
shknowthat, 01 Jul 2015Yea I have the exact same problem . the battery takes a very long time to charge and it drains... moreCharging is slow only when the phone is charged through a USB Port(PC,laptop etc.), and it is set to "Media Device". The phone even tells you that it is charging slowly. Set it to "Charge Phone", or charge it through its charger. Mine goes to 100% from less than 10% in about 2 hrs.
this phone is horrible! The guy at the PCs store told me that it was awesome that I should buy it. The camera sucks it doesn't focus. the only thing that I really like about this phone is the fact that it has a print button. My old phone didn't have that in me selling on eBay, it helps other than that I can't take the pictures that I need to take to list on eBay because barcode doesn't scan. &, it overheats. Drains so quickly and takes forever to charge! Can someone help me please!
techman, 26 Jun 2015Mine takes for ever to charge any body else have that problemYea I have the exact same problem . the battery takes a very long time to charge and it drains very quick. The keyboard is bad too. The auto correct does not do a proper job and the text swype and word suggestions as well . I think it's cool though because I'm basically getting my money back from the rebate so I feel like this phone was free lol

Thats what I have been trying to since I got the phone
MrDiy, 24 Jun 2015The camera on this phone sucks. It says its 5MP, but the resolution once the picture is saved... moreGo to settings on the stock camera app and switch the resolution higher for the camera and video recorder. The full resolution isn't active out of the box. I rooted mine and it's fricken awesome. Got rid of the little bloatware that was on it and the annoying metro pcs boot animation. Pretty good phone
The lg Leon is just a generic version of the Lg g2 g3 & g4. I don't know what y'all expect out of a low budget phone smh you get what you payed for. I owned a g2 and now the g4 I have no problems with my $600 phones. Camera is excellent back and front I doesn't have a battery life is outstanding. Y'all should just upgrade or stop being cheap. Until then don't complain.
Is the camera really that bad. I thought the vga would front camera would be the only problem but is the back 5mp camera bad too. Aren't they good if you have them in good lighting.
I've owned it for about a month and am fairly impressed. It's awesome if you get the rebate and it's free. It's probably worth the $49 after - except for the cameras. The battery was a concern when purchased, but with the use I put into it, I'll get 2 - 3 days (WiFi 4 hrs daily, Location 2 hrs, Bluetooth 2 hrs. Phone chunky compared to Nexus I trashed, but much cheaper. Smaller screen, but not bad. Loaded barcode readers and Google Camera to try and have it read barcodes with no luck. Don't do selfies much so front camera not issue, but it can't focus on barcodes. Other images just so so. 8GB of internal memory fills fast I don't seem to have much on and I'm done to 1.8GB left. Eats up 4.4GB in System Data-WTHeck? Runs pretty fast and multi-tasks well. LG Keyboard runs choppy, but it can be replaced.
3rd LG phone I've had and pretty much happy with them. Not happy Android updated Nexus into constant self starting loop, but don't see an issue with this Leon.
So except for the cameras, it's a keeper.
Camera is beyond bad. Flat out unacceptable. My previous 3 phones have been LG. Optimus V, L9, and F6. All had acceptable cameras- yes, even the Optimus V. The Leon's camera is so bad, it won't even read barcodes! Everything comes out blurry. Maybe I received a bad unit, I can't be sure, but it is terrible. I don't see how a phone released in 2015 can have such an atrocious camera. It has 48 minutes of talk time, still within the MetroPCS return policy, so it is going back... I'll switch to my old F6 until something acceptable comes along. Awful product, LG!
