just installed the v10i upgrade. lagging problems in gaming mode has fixed. the phone works perfect now. i never see any problem about gps for a year. im waiting for another upgrade for the general internet browser. its the only problem of this phone.
Have had and used this phone for 6 months now and can say that it simply sucks. Gps unusable,slow,apps that works good on other phones,viber as an example,is almost unusable and crashes alot and i think a big part of the problem is this phones gallery app. Sometimes when recieving a call and picking this phone out of my pocket there is no answering button displayed and the call can not be answered or dismissed. And now lately,without obvious reason it has started to like electricity and sucks the battery dry in 15 hours just by laying on the table. At the same time it has started to hate my SD card saying that its something wrong with it and refusing to start the apps i have moved to it,but then after a restart it heals the card magically and everything is fine for a while again. And now these last few days it has started to hate its own camera to that point that it refuses to start and even denies that it haves one. These problems get worse with every software update LG sends to it and they clearly wants me to dump this phone and get a new one,but sadly for them my next phone will not have their logo printed on it.
I got this phone for three months and I never forgot that this phone costs less than 200 usd. Bringing this in mind I can forgive the 8 gb of rom and even the 1gb of ram, that is the biggest performance shortcoming on this phone. The reason why there are many people complaining about lag and freeze, where I am included is that the total ram is frequently in use, and then the phone firmware starts the doing the adequate procedure that is either hibernate apps, or overload the processor with "information" that would be stored by ram. But that's something I was somewhat prepared, but even though I promessed to myself never by a 1gb ram phone again. It is completely old fashion and the apps the are currently being develped nowadays are accounting higher specs.
But, something that really put me out of my mind was the gps. It is incredible the amount of times I was waiting for the phone to find satellites. It's not normal that in the middle of an urban centre i could not use the gps... That happened dozens of time to me, and for that reason I do not advise this phone.
janis, 08 Nov 2015Loks like xiaomi redmi 2 in ebay is beter choice.No, it's not. Specs are the same, but if you're willing to sacrifice brand quality and stability for chinese crap, do so. I would not.

The GPS on this phone is crap. Mine detects satellites but cannot lock in, took it to support and they installed some weird upgrade that prompts an error everytime I boot the phone, GPS still not working.
lagging problems has ended thanks to the v10h update. this phone works fine now.
dusan_placipicka, 13 Nov 2015Well, stop carrying your phone in the same pocket with the items that can scratch it. Then, an... moreYou really seem to have a problem understanding things, let me explain to you: Specification on here says phone has GG3. It fails to stand to claimed resistance posted by manufacturer of GG3. So, it eighter doesn't have GG3 or something else is wrong with glass panel.
I didn't expected that it didn't get any scratch, I expected GG3 durability, and it isn't there. Low end Lumia 520 without any kind of protection can stand more. End of story.
This phone is veery nice with no doubts. Design is so elegant, display is fine, back camera takes pretty nice shoots for the money. Lollipop works so smooth with no lags, highly recommend this one.

dusan, 03 Nov 2015Because having phone in same pocket with plastic thing is such a sign on disease. Nice try, trolly.No, but it's a sure sign of you scratching your screen. It is, and you did. Sorry. Better luck next time.
My LG Spirit LTE battery started to work strange. At first it acted quite normally, but later about 1-2 months of sure it started to work strange.
Sometimes I see big discharge jumps. Last time it dropped at once about 50% and I dont have any idea that cause that. In information where it shows apps which drains battery there is nothing strange. Its very annoying, because sometimes in the morning I find it fully discharged, while before going to sleep it was enough battery level. Sometimes I find it with less than 10% of battery.
Maybe anyone had same problem?
dusan, 03 Nov 2015Because having phone in same pocket with plastic thing is such a sign on disease. Nice try, trolly.Well, stop carrying your phone in the same pocket with the items that can scratch it. Then, and only then, you'll stop having problems with scratched screens. Common knowledge you seem to be lacking, dear dusan.
Complaining about an easily scratchable screen, when that scratch is caused by improper usage and care is not a phone quality issue/problem. It's yours. Man up to it, and take more care of your electronics next time.
Got this phone a couple of months ago. The phone is good but hangs and freezes all the time thatÂ’s why I tried to bring it to service center and to my surprise they canÂ’t even tell why my phone hangs and freezes. Sometimes it turns off by its own and when I try to turn it on, the LG logo appears and thatÂ’s that, just logo and nothing at all. Then I would remove the battery and try and try turning it on until it works again only if IÂ’m lucky to revive it. i also try to hard reboot it and with no luck. IÂ’ve got frustrated so I decided to get rid of it and buy a new one. But I would say it has a pretty good display, battery would last the whole day with average use, camera takes decent photos and knock code rocks but all of this would be useless if you can even use it properly. I would say that it might be the software cause the hardware never really have some issues at all in fact, its awesome.
