How is the call clarity? I love the style I want to have the metro pcs service I had metro pcs before they are not bad. I just need this phone for calling mobile hotspot and texting unlimited. Is this the phone for me?
I also saw the Techradar review, but it is incorrect. I have this phone and can confirm it has both 4G LTE and microSD.

From what I've seen the 5mp moto g's camera suffers from way too strong noise reduction which decreases the details on the photos. The Lg Leon on the other hand does suffer from oversharpening but that can be resolved with 3rd party camera apps which allow you to turn down the sharpening. I haven't had my hands on a moto g, so I've formed my opinion based on what I've read and the photo samples I've seen online. Is the noise reduction not that much of an issue on the moto g?
I'm confused!! The other major online reviews say it is 3G only in the US, and there is no micro-SD slot. Please clear this up for me, before I make a mistake.

Scored 13626 in Quadrant standard. 36+ Mbps on Speedtest. Display is good. 5MP camera is junk, lacks detail. The 5MP camera on my Moto G is waaaaaay better. I find the Leon to be quite snappy performance wise. No problems moving stuff to external SD card. Yes the back buttons are a bit awkward, I keep pushing the camera lens but I don't have any problems accidentally hitting a side mounted button and kicking myself out of a game. All and all I'm quite happy with it. If you want Lte on the cheap this is the ticket. Oh, get a case the back cover dings pretty easy.

MR_FIAT, 21 Apr 2015Does it have notification LED?I don't think so. :(
Also, not flash lights will pop up when charging.

Day 3 with my new LG Leon and new carrier Metro PCS. A quick rundown comparing the Leon/Metro to my last phone/carrier, LG Volt/VM.[The Good] Metro PCS signed me up on the outstanding $60 unlimited 4glte plan and I received the Leon free after in-store instant rebates. Score. Plus I like the customer service, kept my number and have actual physical stores to visit unlike VM. Great carrier/plan so far. The phone itself is kinda underwhelming despite being free and on a newer version of Android OS than my Volt (5.0.2 is not that much better than 4.4.2 imo) - it's $100 retail price without rebates is still fairly good seeing how I paid $209 for my Volt in March and 2 years before that $200 (after $60 instant rebate) on a dual core 4.1.2 JB Samsung Galaxy Victory 4GLTE (with a much better display, smaller but crisper, 5mp cam and Apps2sd being completely locked down by VM making storage a joke). HOWEVER [The Bad and/or The Ugly] the charger is a piece of junk, not data transfer quality but the old school type that doesn't use a USB to mini USB cable like every other Android phone I've ever had. Charges so slow that it will actually lose energy if you try to use while charging. No lies. Storage says 8GB but you actually get less than half that around 3.5+GB. Welcome to Bloatware City. Population: You. Lags. Not initially. But within 12 hours of activation and 1.5gb of space still available it was lagging so bad I punched myself in the face. Hard. Again, no lies. Display size and quality, front/rear cameras and battery all lose to the Volt hands down. 5.0.2 isn't worth a new phone, especially with a rooted 4.4.2 with TWRP/CWM recoveries, custom ROMs/kernels in progress (even a Cyanogenmod 12.1 in beta albeit unofficial). My Volt kills this new watered down discount 4GLTE LG Lollipopper. [My advice] Free is a very good price. Not a dollar over $50 if you must. The LG G Stylo is only $200 with $50 rebate. And much more bang for your buck. And it's not half the device the Volt is (LG Optimus L90 is virtually the same phone with 5mp camera and a couple minor differences, available at Metro) - the plan makes this phone worthwhile. Still it's merely my backup phone and a proxy to channel truly unlimited 4glte data to my wifi bound Volt (and probably my SG Tab 4). 5.5/10 - mostly for carrier features and not the phone itself.
if viewed all good specs but weakness,only the front camera still is VGA and 1900 Mah battery,does not correspond with the price of 1,5 Million or 2 Million.
I just upgraded from the f60. Has anybody else had any issues with the sd cards? On my l70 or f60 i could transfer most of my apps but everytime i try with the lg leon it says not enough storage space when i have 30GB left. Besides that issue its pretty good. Especially for the price. They shouldn't have moved the control buttons to the back. It's awkward.
It's not a power house but for the price its perfect. Its not a photographer dreams phone but being a fixed focus 5mp camera it does ok in good lighting but this camera is not for close up shots since it lacks auto focus.. The ram and rom is ok. Lollipop still has a few bugs but if you turn off animations it runs smooth. It lags very little seeing it only has 2gb but I've learned if you want the best android experience you need to you a phone with at least 2 gb of ram.. The front camera isn't the best but in good lighting with the flash on its ok. It has WiFi calling and voLTE and fast LTE on Tmobile. The display is nice and compact. The call quality is excellent with voLTE.the speAker is loud.. LG has always made good lasting products. So if you want a phone that does all the basics well then this your phone. If you want better then don't buy this phone and just complain abt what's wrong with it. If you want better then spend more money.. This phone was free for me on metro pcs which uses tmobile.. I pay 60 a month truly unlimited
I have had the phone for a couple of weeks now and I enjoy using the phone, for what I use the phone is perfect, don't need a $600 or $700 to text,e-mail, netflix picture taking this phone does all that, with wifi calling capability and the sd slot up 32gb for storage the price I payed at t-mobile was just what I was looking for. Takes great pictures like all the features that it comes my perfect phone.
AnonD-383407, 06 Apr 2015What do you mean when mentioning that the 8GB internal memory is not real? I wish to purchase ... moreit is real that lg leon has 8gb internal memory, the thing is ofcourse the system also needs memory to able to function, you cant use the full 8gb memory only for apps but also for the system of the phone.
