I had previously had an LG Solo I decided to upgrade to this because it was on sale. This phone seems to work a little better. I don't really use the Stylus, it's a nice feature and works real well with pictures and some other things like note pad, it snaps it good and won't fall out. Opening apps have been quick on about everything. The chrome browser is real good, rarely has it been slow, most everything opens fast. Calls are loud I haven't had a problem hearing anyone. Typing is very smooth on everything. Videos play good on YouTube and other apps I use. Volume is loud, not the loudest, but definitely not the worst, its not stereo speakers but I can hear everything good enough that I don't always have to have the volume up all the way for some things. The cameras are decent their not by any means like an iPhone or The Samsung S cameras but they work good, the front can take fairly good pictures in fair lighting and will work good in video calling. The back is good also, in fair lighting it can take good pictures, in low light and night it will get grainy. My only small gripes are 3 things. First off my as of this time there is no apps to SD card support for some reason, I tried many times and couldn't seem to move any apps, I have also confirmed this on Google. There could be a software update that changes this sometime in the future as I did have a software update when I first got the phone. You get around 16 GB of storage which isn't too bad. I downloaded 20 apps and still have 9 GBs left which is plenty. They do include some apps already and games which you can delete to free up space. You are able to move other files like music, videos, and pictures, ebooks, and documents to the SD card. You can have an SD card up to 2TBs. Next if your a big gamer and like to play high graphic intense games like PubG, Call of Duty, it will be a little slow and stutter sometimes, and may not be to your liking, it will play stuff like Candy Crush, and Coin Master just fine. My last small gripe is the phone takes 3 hours to charge from around 15 percent. I have read online it is supposed to be fast charge capable. I haven't tried that yet, if you do have a fast charger it may charge it faster as I read online it's supposed to be able to. My phone will last all day, I do use mine a lot. I use the battery saver option and can get 7 hours of on screen time. Overall the positives outweigh any negatives. I would recommend this phone for anyone who is an LG person or even anyone else just wanting a good phone with a big screen that will work good with all everyday tasks. If your an LG person like me you won't be too disappointed or even someone who's just looking for a good phone this will work real well and I am very happy with this phone. Hope this helps anyone looking to buy this phone.
