The Volt 2 runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, with LG's Optimus UI, some preloaded LG apps, and a significant amount of bloatware from Boost. Some of it is uninstallable, but most of it isn't, and you'll likely run out internal storage, as there is only 3.26GB available out of the box. That's where the microSD slot comes in handy.

When it comes to the software itself, apps, screens, and settings menus are slightly altered from stock Android, but not overbearingly so. Still, it's enough to impact performance a bit, as seen in our benchmark results. There are also some useful features, like Knock Code, which allows you to wake and unlock the display without needing to press the power button.

The LG Volt 2 is one of the nicer-looking budget phones you can get on Boost, but it's not one of the best.

LG's apps add some value to the UI experience.

If you're a Boost customer and want something smaller than a phablet, the Volt 2 is a good place to start. It's smaller and less expensive than the G Stylo, but has a better screen and camera than the Tribute 2. It's not quite a Volt of lightning, but the Volt 2 still offers some spark.
