In Brazil the LG Spirit is called LG Volt. Got mine a month ago. Came with tons of bloatware from the TIM carrier, and you simply cannot uninstall them. The phone build looks a bit fragile plastic, but the front screen looks elegant and sturdy: it's a gorilla glass, sightly curved with crispy 720 x 1280 pixels of res. Came with Lolipop out of the box, it's an Android 5.0 tunned by LG to get a lot of customizations with their space-consuming tools. You have 3,59GB for your own apps, that is way too few. It was supposed to have 8GB but the system have hidden the rest from you and you cant move your apps to SD: they somehow disabled it. I'm a medicine student and I need apps like Medscape, UptoDate and BMJ Best Practice: they easily eats up 1GB each: simply can't have all of them together. It comes with a locked bootloader, and it is very discouraging to root the Spirit. It's a beatiful phone with short space for apps. The system is full of cute ram-eating animations and get sightly slow for multitasking: the phone is loaded with carrier and LG apps trying to run in the background. Does average well on 2D apps lagging a bit but 3D games can't be played smoothly here. The battery life is a no-go: the screen, even turned off, is responsive to touches and I guess it drains up the battery. I use a Pebble watch so there's bluetooth use but didn't make much difference in the battery lifespan between a day using BT on and a day off. Camera is surprisingly good, but slow to take the first pic. Hold the volume down behind the phone is a shortcut to the camera: it takes ages to load up and the first pic kind of lags. Flash is very strong and night pictures are saved by it. Botton line the pros are the gorgeous curved screen, the Android 5.0 running smoothly and reasonable price, but the cons are the offensive short 3GB for user apps and the poor battery life.
amazing phone in its price range.everything is going good since 1month.It would have been nice if the battery has more capacity
Does it have a notifications LED above the screen? When I looked for a screen protector on the eBay, there's a small cut-out on the left side of the earpiece.
I got this phone about a week ago, and it's amazing. If you are looking for mid-range phone, with decent specs, this is the one to go. The best thing about it is the price. It's only 150$, but it can compare to most 200-250$ phones. The display is just stunning. Color reproduction and viewing angles are really good. For me 1gb ram is enough. Battery is not the best, but it can last me a whole day without a problem. I think the main camera is not making really good photos, but it's quick. All in all, I think this is the best phone in this price range and i plan on using it for at least a couple of years..
My opinion about the LG spirit,I think it's a pretty decent phone (since I have one) the button placement on the the back makes turning off the phone less awkward,
Because with my last 2 touchscreen phones
Turning them off on the side was uncomfortable for my thumb.I don't ios for the iphone it's not as customizable as android,android is very customizable that's why i like android.The curved design for the LG spirit is nice,smooth and comfortable but it rarely slips out of your hand. But overall the LG spirit is a pretty decent phone.
xxx, 10 Aug 2015Is it corning gorila glass ???..pls answer for indian model. H422nhave cg glass.
Very good phone with amazing design, the camera is awesome, but the front is a little bit dark, the screen quality wasnt expecting it to be so good and the glass is like the iphone glass, buy it !!
Bah!, 17 Jul 2015This phone has serious GPS problems, a lot of people have already reported it on XDA and it se... moreI had the same problem after phone fell on floor.
You just need to tighten screws again and problems with gps are fixed :)
I've had it for a month and sold it. It is pretty much good phone, good battery life for Android, nice camera, much fater with hola launcher (original one slows down phone a lot).
But big drawback is that touchcreen can't be Gorilla Glass 3. It's scratched soooo easily. Plastic of my external battery scratched it so bad i my pocket for one session that it looked like it is years old. Yes, it's my fault, but GG3 can't be that much prone to dammage. I had and now have phones with GG3 and GG2 and they are really scratch resistant.
Otherwise, phoone is really nice and with good price.
