I got this phone over a year ago in September and it performed beautifully for over a year. Camera was used to take photos of notes, be it paper or powerpoint, music sound is excellent and the phone itself is amazingly easy to navigate. You can hide icons you don´t want displayed in the menu, which I love since I hate clutter of things I don´t use. Battery lasts a long time, though I charge it often because of my love for music.
BUT! What convinces me that this is an amazing and durable phone is the fact that about three weeks ago mine accidentally took a little dive into the toilet (flushed) and soaked there for an hour with only a plastic protector. An hour in the water. Panic and all that, and for a while I thought it was lost. After drying (hairdryer from a distance), shaking and waiting, it turned on. Everything worked, but the backlight. So I could not see the screen, but music, photos, connecting to my laptop, taking photos and calls and everything worked. Why the past tense? Because a week ago while blindly trying to change music it blinked to life. Ladies and gentlemen, the screen is glowing again! The only damage are a few lighter dots at the very bottom.
An hour-long soak and my LG Spirit works as perfectly as before! If you want a quality phone that endures water, falls (yep, took a couple of those), being slept on and carried in a bag, but for a small price, go with this one. Plus you can get a ton of nice-looking soft/hard/flip covers for under two dollars, too!
wanted to purchase this phone and we are verifying the comments !
@Snail - are you sure it is not you who doesn't know how to tweak the phone and thus unleash its actually great potential? Dig around in XDA and you might discover that for its price tag it is actually a really good phone. Yes, I know it has issues such as some problems with the GPS, but that can be easily worked around. But as to it's performance ... tweak it with a few wise tools, which you can use only after you root it (I hope you know what that means) and then see and feel the difference. And yeah, stop using $hitty apps. That might make whatever phone you're using perform much better and will definitely give you more bang for your buck.
so far the slowest phone one the market. it hangs allll the time I want to throw it against the wall and see it braoken in millón pieces. than I remember im poor. cabo wait to buy Samsung again

Had it for year and three months... Now I am done with this.
Its a too slow sometimes to open main page after you quit app. Also the GPS never works. The navigation app tells GPS not found all the time. It's useless. I know two familiars with same model and indeed they have bad GPS too, never works. No way to play Pokemon Go due to lack of GPS. Is GPS even installed here???
It never find a GPS signal. My operator pays 37 Â€ for this piece if I return it for new model and I am going for Galaxy J5 2016. Hope it is better.
driving me crazy by being so slow, stops working every freaking time, and gps is so shitty too
Berk, 07 Aug 2016Why anyone is not speaking about the huge lack of gps signal on this phone? Am I the only one ... moreHad the same problem, was searching for ages! I finally found out that I had to tighten the little screws on the back of the case and this was the solution. Also, use the gps locker app.
