This phone is fine in some areas: call voice quality when using it normally or speakerphone, durability, memory slot, battery life. Big however though, the camera is terrible. Who would put up with a 1-2 second lag when hitting the button? I reduced photo size to 6 MP just to get rid of the lag, but the photos are still terrible; my 2012 EscapeP870 was much better. Also, the Bluetooth works sometimes, sometimes not at all, sometimes sounds great, sometimes extremely garbled whether the car's or my earpiece. Saving the most annoying for last. The dialer. Androids normally just pick up the number from your contact list when you start entering the letters of the name, with tones, too. Well, not this phone. Sometimes you get tones, usually not, sometimes the names pop right up, mostly it's 30 seconds before it can find it, sometimes it will find your contact, sometimes nothing but "add to contacts". I've tried to recreate situations when it works and when it doesn't but it's truly a schizo phone.
Katiebug, 17 Dec 2017I have had my phone for 6 months. Just this past week the volume level has started to randomly... moreIt will happen more..ive gone through 3 of these and they all have problems. It will also get really slow and buggy.
Samsung should sue LG for copying the normal design and layout of Samsung Galaxy phones!
I have had my phone for 6 months. Just this past week the volume level has started to randomly drop. I took it to our local AT@T store, they thought they have fixed it but it started doing it again. I've missed calls because of this. Anyone else having this issue?
Home Alone, 04 Nov 2017MY LG X Venture is having the same charging issues as have been so prevent in the LG G6. It wo... morehi , u can use a hair dryer ,i had problem same like u , turn off your device and use hair dryer exactly on the lower socket for about 5 to 10 minutes ... turn on & you will not see any massage.....
generally when u turn off this soaked mobile, u can use your charger ,then will start to charging....
You people don't know a damn thing about cellphones!!.to me I had a good time with this phone!!!.Lots of fun,calls great,plays games okay.Very unique design I've never seen before.great speakerphone!.I had put a cellphone volume booster app on it,and the sound is booming and very vivid!!!.Folks,start doing research before crying!!!!.
MY LG X Venture is having the same charging issues as have been so prevent in the LG G6. It won't charge and gives me a "MOISTURE IN PORT" error. Ive only had the phone 2 months and my WATER RESISTANT phone has been no where near water. The moiture detector is still white but according to AT&T, LG will not honor the warranty due to the error msg and will CHARGE ME for a non compliant claim. ATT worked with me as far as they could go, then called LG to explain the situation as this is a known issue. LG was supposed to finish processing the warranty claim. Instead they gave me a number to request a repair which will take 2 weeks. No replacement, no loaner or anything. 2 weeks home alone with an infant and no phone - can't wait. Soooooooo disappointed with LG, and their lack of customer service.
X venture is overpriced a bit , well it's normal because it's rugged phone. imagine with higher spec : dual sim , sd820 or 600 series. Plus higher battery 5k mAh then be a really venture phone. or even bigger battery HD or FHD display because of battery. do not forget Wide Camera , both back and front. to shot good photo at mountain :) just they should bring wide lens and better CPU
Force Majeure, 02 Sep 2017Not even mid-range anymore, 430, 435 is upper low-end or budget segment, as you can get a 435 ... moreIt is a mid range phone....you don't only look to the processor ... But to all specifications together..
Enz, 24 Jun 2017I think it's a good phone for midrange alot of people don't seem to understand its only a midr... moreNot even mid-range anymore, 430, 435 is upper low-end or budget segment, as you can get a 435 with 2-3 GB RAM for Â€110-120 today, new. SD 625 is mid-range now. The new SD 450 is going to be the same as 625 almost and that's budget territory.

Not everyone is looking for gaming or camera device.
Some are just looking for affordable phones with two types of certification so they can take it with them to go hiking and not worry about rain or the occasional drop.
AnonD-113400, 01 Jun 20175.2inch too small should be at least 5.5 2gb ram too low should be at least 4gb Camera f/2.2... moreBreak hearts... That's what LG is about. Phone brands have just as much fanship as football clubs. They seem not to get this.
wally, 03 Jun 2017Nice design but should be dual sim and 3 GB Ram Absolutely agree
