Gee, 13 Jul 2016It is the worst phone I have ever had.The camera all of sudden stopped working.
It overheats.... moreIf your phone is getting hot and losing battery for no reason, it is downloading/uploading or doing something in the background. Free apps aren't really free. You get to use the app, while they use your phone as they see fit. Worst offenders...Facebook and Snap Chat. Try deleting your uploaded apps, (delete from the application manager), and see if it stops. If not, you will need to do a factory reset to get rid of the virus your phone has contracted.
If it is glitching all the time, you have a virus or too much stuff, (apps, pics, music, emails and/or texts), on the phone, or both. Check your storage and see if you are at capacity. If so, take some things off of your phone. Getting an SD card and moving apps, pics, music to your SD card will help alleviate the lack of storage.
Your smart phone is like a mini computer and needs to be treated as such. They get viruses, they get slow and need cleaning when they are older, and they will glitch, if you have bogged them down with 100s of emails, texts and 27 game apps. A lot of this is common sense.
At this point I would suggest removing all downloaded apps, download all pics to your computer, get rid of all unneeded texts and emails. See if that helps. If not, do a factory reset on the phone. If you don't know how, take it to your provider.
Then reintroduce your downloaded apps slowly. Give it a couple of days to see if it is glitching, getting hot, etc. Don't keep emails/text unless absolutely necessary, and regularly download your photos to a computer so you don't lose them in some sort of accident, like a lost/broken/water damaged phone. Don't keep pics that aren't important to you, as it just eats your storage, and only download a game or two at a time. Once you lose interest in a game or app, delete it, so it is not taking up space on your phone.
Vanlg84, 30 Jul 2016Hi. Sorry if I write wrong, my native language its spanish. I wanna buy this phone (lg leon) f... moreThe LG Leon is a very good phone for the price point. 8 MP camera, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB of ROM and gesture features? You would be hard pressed to find something in that price range, with those features.
My boyfriend switched out his Samsung S4 Mini for this and has never been sorry. He has had his for 6 months, got it used and loves it.
Hi. Sorry if I write wrong, my native language its spanish. I wanna buy this phone (lg leon) for my dad. That means He only will use it for taking picture, making calls and using whatsapp. It will performance ok? I mean it will be enough for him. Thanks!
The phone is completely fine for me. Can't understand all the negative reviews. Having it for six months by now and no trouble at all.
It's fast enough and after preventing apps from starting themselves battery lasts for two to three days. Internal 4GB are a bit small though.
Reckon if smartphones don't play the main role in your life, this phone will do...
MclarenRacer18, 26 Jun 2016Well this is actually my 3rd phone from T-Mobile and well in general this is a whole junk full... moreThis phone had horrible battery life, low RAM, and has very low storage! 20 seconds ago I looked at the percentage it said 81% I look again as i'm typing this and now it's at 79% WTF!
Cableboy, 07 Jul 2016-The camera is horrible, bordering on unusable. It doesn't focus well and you have to keep you... moreApparently you don't have the same phone because I've had mine for 5 months and non of that even compares to mine. Camera works good for 5mp, decent steadycam, speaker is loud and clear. Dunno if you think $60 should get you something made of gold but it's pretty decent for what it is. Not a single issue thus far.
At first it works perfectly fine, but after a while it loses charge very easily and constantly shuts off for hours and can't be turned back on.

Constantly needs charging.
Thats just a few things.But the worst is that it will up and shutoff and it takes several hours to come back up.Not good.
-The camera is horrible, bordering on unusable. It doesn't focus well and you have to keep your hands completely still to take pictures when the light isn't perfectly bright.
-Low speakerphone volume. You still have to hold the phone up next to your ear to hear.
-Reasonably fast. I don't get lag when surfing the internet or multitasking.
If you don't use the camera often, this phone could be okay based on the price. At least it's fast.
