LG A341 review

5.1/10 AVG.
RATING



5.1/10
Informr score
The LG A341 currently has an Informr score of 5.1 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 10 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

The same company that brought the stylish Prada phone into existence for the fashion-minded masses now aims to make life easier for seniors or mobile phone amateurs with the LG A341. Sure, the old flip phone has been done a thousand times before, but the A341 has a few interesting features in store.

It offers Text to Speech, which turns the A431 into a robotic narrator of text messages, and Senior Mode, which enhances phone audio to make it easier for users to hear calls. There are two screens: a main, 2.4-inch QVGA colour screen inside and a secondary screen that can be used when the phone is closed.

The rest of the A431’s features remind us of the fact that it’s an entry-level handset: there’s a 1.3MP camera, MMS support, and Bluetooth wireless connectivity, but not much else to speak of. Battery life is short at only 3 hours of talk time per charge.

Need to Know: LG A431

1. User-friendly and offers a handful of special usability features. (The Good)

2. Affordable. (The Good)

3. User manual has limited information. (The Bad)

4. Short battery life. (The Bad)

The phone seems to work well but...

But the problems is the earphones stopped working and we can't find replacement earphones that fit in the phone port - anywhere!!  Apparently we would need an adaptor (which I have been told may or may not work?).  My son doesn't want to give up his phone and he is hoping I can magically find a replacement pair of earphones...  Does anyone have a pair for sale or have any suggestions?

GREAT PHONE !!

I've had this phone for about 3 years now without one single problem !! No dropped calls, always good reception, very easy to use BUT, it is not a smart phone so if you just need a device to make and receive calls and text ( all a phone really should do), then I recommend it. a lot of previous reviews...More

A piece of CRAP

Too much junk, I want a PHONE not a computer, and one I can call, talk, and end call. Like a phone should be.
Brin

Good basic phone good value owned for 2 yrs no problems

Great secondary/travel phone

Agree with JayBee. I also think this phone gives good value for a basic $50 compact flip phone. I unlocked and have been using it while roaming in US works great!

So people rate a phone here at 1/10 just because of the manual?

First of all folks, it comes with a wall charger, so I don't know why that's a problem here. The camera is a lot good enough for basic shots at 1M pixel. The main screen is clear, colourful and bright and easy to navigate. Phone is compact, light and thin even when closed. This phone is so easy for me...More

The main screen is clear, colourful and bright and easy to navigate. Phone is compact, light and thin even when closed. This phone is so easy for me to use that I didn't even need the instruction manual. I've only had it for a couple of days, so I haven't had a lot of calling time on it yet, so consider my review accordingly. It gets a "10" since I like it so far and I didn't need the manual and I like the exterior colour. ;-) Less

Not as good as previous LG phones

Ditto all of the previous comments. The phone cannot be used with previous LG chargers/ancilliaries. It is not intuitive to use and the start-up booklet is worse than useless. You get what you pay for!

The absolute worst phone I have ever owned.

When I first got this phone it had issues, not receiving calls or text messages, not allowing me to make calls or send text - saying "service unavailable". The retailer exchanged the phone for an identical one, as we thought the issue was with that particular cell. Well I am having the same issues. M...More
When I first got this phone it had issues, not receiving calls or text messages, not allowing me to make calls or send text - saying "service unavailable". The retailer exchanged the phone for an identical one, as we thought the issue was with that particular cell. Well I am having the same issues. My friends say that their calls go straight to voicemail, my phone never rings, nor does it tell me that I missed a call. It's not like I am using it in places that are out of service areas, this is going on in my home where I have always had cell reception and at work. When I do get reception it is so poor I end up having to finish the call or the call gets lost. My boyfriend keeps saying, "I'll sure be glad when you get a new phone" - this one is only 3 months old!!! The user guide is absolutely useless, I can't even apply user ID ringtones to my favourite callers. Shame on LG, and shame on Telus for promoting this device. Less

Worst ever

The quick start guide for this phone is the most useless thing I have ever seen, and there doesn't seem to be a real manual anywhere.

Garbage

This is the worst phone I have ever owned. My 4 year old LG was better. The battery life is three days of standby time. Quick start booklet is the worst of any product I have owned. More pages are spent on ass-covering safety subjects than actually using the phone and working through menus. Sure,...More
This is the worst phone I have ever owned. My 4 year old LG was better. The battery life is three days of standby time. Quick start booklet is the worst of any product I have owned. More pages are spent on ass-covering safety subjects than actually using the phone and working through menus. Sure, it is a cheap phone...but why not at least have features that older cheap phones inluded. Brutal. I won't turn this one in to upgrade it. I will smash hell out of it with a blunt instrument Less
