I HATE this Phone. It is the SLOWEST phone ever. I sure hope I don't have an emergency to call 911 because it would not go through. Screen freezes constantly you have to always hold the power and low volume button and it takes forever to shut down. Doesn't really fix any problems like it says it should. My opinion - don't waste your money on this phone!
I've only been using this phone 5 days & I HATE it. The service with Spectrum is good, but the LG Q70 sucks. It is so hard to navigate from page to page. No home key to leave a screen or exit a page. It sucks
This phone is a disaster...
Worst experience with cell phones yet.
The old flip phone was better!
Steven, 08 Jan 2021Yes the phone is not 5g compatible its only 4gMy 4g is not working what do I do
I hate this phone. More than half the time it does not get my words right when I do talk-to-text. Google does not understand me half the time it does not work. The reactions are slow no matter what I do. Sometimes it's difficult to swipe. This is the worst phone I have ever ever had and I am still paying for it.
Gary, 23 Nov 20205GHz wifi has much shorter (1/3) the range of 2.4 GHz. Literally it cannot work for >100m, ... moreHigher frequency signals (5.0) have a shorter range than lower frequency signals (2.4). That is the nature of RF signals. The advantage of 5.0 is higher data speeds. So, bottom line is: 5.0 gives faster data at shorter distances; 2.4 give slower data at longer distances. It works that way for all phones.

Anonymous, 02 Nov 2020It is true the phone "can" get slow. But, as long as you have a task killer download... moreTrue.. you want the phone to be smooth, you need to take care more..
it's not the system is managed by AI to do works for you.. be realistic
Brady, 17 Oct 2020Yeah I currently have this phone and omg is it slow. Do got to say very nice camera and lovely... moreIt is true the phone "can" get slow. But, as long as you have a task killer downloaded, I use AVG cleaner, the phone works perfectly. Also don't forget to clear out all this apps in the background, because they just waste previous memory you don't need. I've great thing about the cleaner is it'll tell you the battery drainers, as well as must days used, etc. Hope this helps.
I bought the LG Q70 to use with a drone that requires 5G Wi-Fi. I can't get the phone to connect to my drone controller at 5G Wi-Fi, it will only connect at 2.4G, it is a dual band phone. Does anyone have any idea why I'm having this difficulty ?

Do got to say very nice camera and lovely screen along with the design of the phone itself is nice and sleek and good storage what my God does this phone like to lag Skip and take 2 minutes to open a app when I'm watching YouTube and I switch between portrait and view it really likes to lag and that upsets me I don't think it's the chipset or the ram or flash memory I think it has to do with LG firmware programming and if LG sees this please fix it it would take most likely a simple update it wouldn't speed it up fully but it would be nice to have a faster phone as I said though it's a nice phone physically but something with the firmware it's fishy for all we know it could be a simple fix such as changing a 1 to a 0
Okay so here's a short review. I bought this phone few months back in Korea (around $390).
Snapdragon 675 ain't big shot but for an average user like myself it's quite enough for daily activities: call, message, music, web browsing and some gaming.... I compared to my friend's XSMax and Q70 is slower in gaming, but it's not that bad. For me the performance is acceptable for this price.
I'm not into taking photo so I can't give more details about the camera, to me it's okay, has manual mode and I can tune focus myself which is good.
Audio quality is awesome! With a decent headphone, the quad DAC really shines, it gives your music to another level. IMHO it deserve the best music-player-phone nominate (or any phones which have similar DAC).
Battery is good, there's no official testing from GSMArena but you can find phones with same specs in the table, I think they share similar battery life.
IP68 and MIL-STD-810G are big bonus to me, I love my things last.
Update: Before buying, I was skeptical about LG would deliver update in the next decade or so. But yesterday I received an OTA Android 10 update. My neighbor asked me if I need medical support when I screamed of joy.
Pros: Brilliant audio quality (and 3.5 jack), high chance of survive in an apocalypse
Cons: The back is made of glass, I prefer something more durable, like vibranium. Since I bought this in Korea, it has some Korean characters here and there even I set the language to English (like the ringtones), and lock screen shows two clocks, one is my time zone, the other is Korean's, I can't remove the Korean's. It's annoying sometimes.
Conclusion: if you're a music enthusiast like me, and want a phone with decent specs enough for some lightly gaming, web and shit, then this phone is for you (plus it doesn't have Chinese scam apps). Or else if you prefer a beast with cheapest price possible and ditch everything else, there are tons of Chinese brands to select from.
This is the worst phone I've ever had. Bulky, and SO SLOW! Frequently skips around on it's own, It was "free" from Verizon with a two year contract. I thought I could work with it for two years but not going to be able to. I should have known a "free" phone would be exactly you-get- what-you-pay-for.
I'm in the use but my LG g70 case is broken it doesn't especially the back where can I find it for a good deal huh
Should I get this or Galaxy A8?
Worst thing in mobile history that LG discontinued developing midrangers, and moved out of Eastern Europe baltic states.
They were ultra popular here.
