I lost my "good" phone and went on this lg risio I had gotten free from Cricket. Its no flagship phone of course but for a $50 phone I'm very impressed. It's not glitchy like the cheap phones of yesteryear were. It works and does the job. You want memory and a great camera? pay the big bucks for flagship phones. This phone does the job.

Why complain

Okay, seriously it is an okay phone and nobody can complain. Who cares about message themes. Also whoever thinks the battery sucks must be on their phones 17 hours a day. I need to charge it every 1 and a half days. I use it for call, text and all that other stuff like gmail.

This is not a powerhouse phone, true, but I'm pleased with it for what it is. One person complained about the battery life, but I only have to charge it every 2-3 days. I'm not on it constantly, but I do use it several times a day.

I use my phone to communicate with others by voice, text, & email. It is my contact manager, digital notepad, and calendar / task manager, and it does these things wonderfully. It is also a great GPS and quick Internet search tool. The fact that it is capable of being a WiFi mobile hot spot is a great bonus, allowing me to use my tablet anywhere.

I do have a couple of BASIC games on it, and they run fine. The cameras on it are good. I use it as my MP3 player because it connects to both my car stereo and headset via Bluetooth, so I don't have to remember where I am in my playlist or constantly swap cords as I move from one to the other. I don't watch videos on it very often. I never use it for Facebook or other social media.

One person mentioned the "weird" positioning of the power and volume buttons. Yes, they are on the back of the phone instead of the edges. Yes, that took a little getting used to. Now, I LOVE the design. On other phones, I was constantly hitting the power and volume buttons by accident and messing things up. That isn't a problem on this phone, yet adjusting the volume during a call is still easy, it just takes a more intentional action - which I appreciate.

The last thing I'm going to disagree with is what one person said about the keyboard. It's true that the default keyboard is awful, but the alternative Google keyboard is already installed and easy to change to as the default. It does as well as any other I've used.

My phone isn't my primary computing device, it's a supplemental device, and is great as such. If you need a high-power CPU, this isn't the phone for you. If you just need a decent communication device, give it a good hard look.

awful

Worse than even the oldest smartphones. It takes 5 seconds to return to the home screen after closing an app. It's painfully slow. So slow it's practically useless. It randomly quits when running apps, the battery never stays charged for more than 5 hours or so and drains like crazy if you're running anything. The battery life would be improved if you remove all the bloatware on it I assume. Whoever designed this must not have hands because the buttons are on the back and not very easy to feel especially because the camera (5mp, seriously?) is right above them. The home and back buttons rarely work as described and just end up causing this pile to vibrate as if someone were calling you. Don't buy this phone, I know it's cheap but the Samsung Grand Prime is only a little bit more $ and actually works and is designed by someone who isn't a mouth breathing idiot. I'm only giving it one star because it's cheap.
