The LG LX-160 is one of those “other” phones made by a company known for its sleek, thin brushed metal entries such as the Shine, LX 8700, Prada, etc. But while the LX-160 may not earn its own display booth at a consumer electronics show, it is nonetheless a competent entry that gets the job done.

The LG LX-160 is a small clamshell with good sound quality and provides the user a straight forward application mix, including a task list, world clock, memo pad, and alarm clock. It is Bluetooth capable (up to 20 pairings) and includes voice activated dialing, customizable caller ID and a dedicated text key.

The external display is a humble .83” x .63” STN (96 x 94 pixels), but gets the job done by displaying useful information including time, signal strength, day and date. The internal display is 1.10” x 1.38” (138 x 160 pixels). The keypad is comprised of large buttons that respond well and are easy to press without error.

Web access, email and IM support round out the feature set off this affordable and phone.

The LG LX-160 is a great choice for users looking for a simple, reliable cell phone that includes a practical set of features at a very affordable price.

4 years of quality service

(over 2 years ago)

lasted 4 years through lots of construction work. I lost and found it twice. The front was so worn that you could read the manufacture date. Still the original battery( so i don't know what was going on for the other reviewer.) I give this phone 10/10 although it is not likely anyone is still going... More

Battery

(over 4 years ago)

The Battery Life On These Lg 160 Sucks. I Sent It Back They Sent Me Another. Same Crap. Make 3 Phone Calls Maybe 1- 2 Minutes Each The Battery Is Crapped Out. Don,t Buy One. If you Chose To Make Sure That You Get A Postage Stamped Envelope So You Can Send It Back. Crap. I.ll Stay With My Old Telus... More

Came with some troubles..

(over 5 years ago)

When I first got it, it locked up. It would lock up for the browser, or randomly for text messages, sometime the alarm setting off would lock it up. I had to keep resetting it by removing the battery. Eventually it wouldn't reboot. So I used my warranty and sent it back in. Next problem was they... More

LG-160

(over 5 years ago)

This phone replaced the LG-150 that was voluntarily recalled. Ironically, I had more success with the LG -150. I am unable to access some of the applications that I purchased from my carrier and the phone will frequently "freeze" up. The phone will ring but I cannot hear, nor am I heard by,... More

Some Are LEMONS

(over 5 years ago)

Had the phone 3 month's until I got fed up with everyone's complaining that they could not hear me through all the static. I could hear them, they could not hear me. So to see for myself I called my cell from another phone and waved the cell around and sure enough it was a distorted mess of... More

Excellent for a cheap phone

(over 5 years ago)

It has worked perfectly for me, never dropped a call. Easily worth the $50.

Junk phone at a cheap price

(over 5 years ago)

I've had this phone for 8 months. My wife and I both have monthly plans with Virgin. She has the Samsung m 510 which has great reception and call quality. The LG 160 constantly cuts out and drops calls. At home, my wife's Samsung has no issues with clarity and reception but the LG 160 has terrible... More

One good one bad.

(over 5 years ago)

I've had two. One is still working flawlessly for over a year now. The second after three months the arrow keys and menu button have stopped working making texting impossible. So I would say 5/10. Its a simple basic phone that is cheap and if it werent for the faulty buttons I would say 8/10... More

Good basic phone

(over 6 years ago)

This is a great, easy to use, reliable phone. I have had one for over a year and it works fine, has no weak points or problems with it's design. It charges quickly and has good talk time and standby time. It will not take surround sound videos nor does it have touchscreen features. If you need a... More
