A big phone at a budget price

LG Stylus 2

from Phone Scoop (1 day ago)

The Stylo 2 corrects some of the issues plaguing its predecessor. The phone is slim, light, attractive, and well made.

The Stylo 2 corrects some of the issues plaguing its predecessor. The phone is slim, light, attractive, and well made. It carries over the processor, but improves the memory, storage, and camera in big ways. The display isn't the best I've seen, but it suffices. Battery life is absolutely killer, but the phone suffers a bit from network and calling issues.

Having used the LG G5 for a little while now, I think some of the heavy criticism that was thrown at the device when it first launch is partly unfounded. There are some aspects to the G5 that are disappointing and worthy of critique, but in general, LG’s flagship for 2016 is a decent enough smartphone with some compelling features.

A smartphone to take note of

LG Stylus 2

from Alphr (4 days ago)

Overall, the LG Stylus 2 is a decent budget phablet, but a lot of its appeal will rest on whether you really want the stylus or not. It certainly fills a hole left by the lack of new Note devices from Samsung, and the DAB+ facility is an intriguing extra.

Affordable entry-level smartphone with LTE functionality

LG K4

from Notebookcheck (6 days ago)

LG's K4 aims to be an affordable companion, but the handset did not impress us in the test. The smartphone conveys a feel as if it actually emerged in 2012. That is true for the inferior screen, sluggish handling and the equipment. The only highlight is LTE support.

At its current UK SIM-free price of £475, the LG G5 is a tempting package for anyone unimpressed by what Samsung's offering right now.

At its current UK SIM-free price of £475, the LG G5 is a tempting package for anyone unimpressed by what Samsung's offering right now. It's a little cheaper than the regular flat Galaxy S7, and what it lacks in overall polish it makes up for with unique value propositions. While Samsung might well have brought a better core experience this time around, the G5's removable battery, wide-angle camera and higher-resolution main camera are enough to warrant consideration.

For $100, the LG Tribute 5 is a nice-looking phone that can handle the basic needs of casual users. You'll get similar performance from the Hydro Reach, with the added benefit of a waterproof build, although its camera and battery life are even worse than those of the Tribute 5. For the same price, the Moto E gets you near-stock Android software, faster performance, and better battery life, so it remains our Editors' Choice for entry-level smartphones on Boost.

LG has tried something truly different with the LG G5. Unrecognisable from its leather-bound predecessor, the all-metal LG G5 brings modular designs to the mainstream. But the lack of compelling add-ons, fiddly release mechanism, and the fact that the smartphone has to be rebooted each and every time you decide to switch between the modules, mean you’ll likely forget about the feature within 48 hours of owning the LG G5.

A bottom-of-the-ladder phone

LG K4

from Phone Scoop (15 days ago)

With the LG Spree, it's a case of "you get what you pay for." At $40, the Spree is as cheap as they come. The hardware is adequate for young people or those with small hands, but the software simply isn't able to keep up.

The LG G5 is an interesting experiment. Its modular slot at the bottom of the phone holds potential, but I suspect it will never be filled. It does allow users to replace the battery while still providing a solid smartphone. The cameras are great fun, it has USB-C and a microSD card slot, a great screen and interesting design. But small niggles such as the gaps where the chin connects, the sharp join lines, the plastic feel of the body and disappointing battery life means the G5 isn’t quite as good as the best available at the moment.

LG was really creative this year to get the attention of customers and we think the Korean company offers a successful overall package. The combination of a good display, proven camera and decent battery runtimes is a solid foundation. We really like the new design and the modular concept of the LG G5 offers interesting additional modules.

Works well, has enough stuff, 3G, web. If your not putting your nose into a smart phone every 10 seconds this is the phone for you. I see people banging on there phone all the time like they have nothing else to do. Most have zero personality so smart phones replace that part of there liefs. I have plenty to do without chatting with someone else all day and making my life tolerable. I'm 23 and hate smart phones, I have one but use my LG 441 more, one handed use is perfect. Get one you might have a personality after all. If your a democrat you have no idea what I just said and go back to your cave.

BEST of mine

LG KF600

I fell in love with this phone/ as it reflects my optimal user style - the screen is interactive (I'm highly visual) + it's very comfortable to hold & type too. Extremely user-friendly. It's really sad I can't find a new one like that again!

The phone was advertised on other sites as having a digital compass, which is a basic requirement for a smartphone. It appears there is confusion as to whether the phone does or doesn't have a digital compass. LG technical staff I've talked to claim not to know what a digital compass is! The phone is totally frustrating. I would not have bought it if I had known it wouldn't work properly. Don't touch it with a bargepole.

Disappointed

LG 441G

My son gets many random texts and calls all the time, but the screen only shows "new message". You have to open it to find out it's spam, which of course deducts minutes. Haven't found a block option either to cut back on the spam.

My carrier is Verizon, bought phone new. 16 days later screen was frozen and glitching non responsive, I had to pull the battery to get it going again. 18 days later and the phone shut off in between a call, again screen went black and was non responsive, had to pull battery to get going again. Verizon customer service said software issues and has to get replaced with Verizon warranty "refurbished"! 19 days later, phone won't turn on at all, completely dead. Very unhappy with phone and carrier! I paid for a new phone, not for testing purposes! Oh and one last thing, phone doesn't come with ear buds!

Maybe it's because I didn't have a choice in what phone to get. Maybe it's because I absolutely LOVED my old phone (HTC One S) and didn't want to get rid of it. Or maybe it's because the phone really is as annoying as I think it is. The bottom line is, I hate it. Although some people might like the larger screen, I find it's too big to hold comfortably. I tend to keep my cell in my back pocket. Can't do that with this one as it's too big. And it's heavy. Heavier WITHOUT a case than my last phone was WITH it's case (and since I have a habit of dropping my phone, I need a case, so now this big, heavy phone will be even bigger and heavier). What I like about it: the camera. What I don't like about it: pretty much everything else. Ease of navigation? Not there. Nothing is straightforward. You constantly have to search for what you want. I have had several phones from several different manufacturers before this one and I have never, EVER had problems with set up or learning/finding it's features. The battery life is not good either. Just setting the phone up with my preferences, it went from a full charge to 74%. Haven't listened to music, haven't played any games or downloaded anything and still it sucked back over 1/4 of the battery. I shudder to think how often I will have to charge the thing once I start to actually use it. Regrettably, I am stuck in a 2 year contract. I am literally counting down the days before I can get out of it and get a decent phone. (As of now, it's 716 days. It's going to be a long 2 years.)

Info & Contact

About LG

Few cell phone manufacturers have received as much attention as LG over the past several years, mainly because they keep coming out with great devices. LG is responsible in large part for turning cell phones into show phones, with sexy form factors, brushed metal fascias and functionality to back up the good looks.

LG is an enormous multinational corporation with 75 subsidiaries throughout the world, but their cell phone division has truly been one of their showpieces. You may be familiar with the “Shine Line” of phones that include a number of shiny flips and sliders that have racked up huge sales for carriers.

By 2005 LG was a Top 100 global brand. In addition to great cell phones, LG is the largest manufacturer of liquid crystal displays.

The company got its start in 1958 under the name GoldStar, making radios, TVs, refrigerators, washing machines and air conditioners.
