Really is an ideal first smartphone

from Notebookcheck

Compared to its predecessor, the LG K4 has come into bloom: It has a modern look and a better LC display than the last model had, although its low resolution still is not up to par. Its weak performance - both in the benchmarks and in practice, which becomes apparent though its slow response to inputs, means that we would not recommend the LG K4 to advanced users.

My 4 year old iphone 5 bit the dust a few weeks ago and I wanted a replacement that didn't cost too much. I'm not someone who games on my cellphone. This phone totally works. It phones people, it texts people, it messages from all kinds of apps, it's fast enough, the screen is fine, I can do emails and messaging and news reading. It feels a tiny bit flimsy and I'll definitely get an SD card to expand the memory, but after a week with it I'm happy. Hope it lasts a year or so at least. I would recommend this a fancy expensive phone alternative in Canada especially.
