LG Optimus F6 (MetroPCS)

 

The LG Optimus F6 is a well-connected Android smartphone with LTE, NFC, and a decent display. But its limited internal storage, older OS, and poor camera make it less appealing than it looks.

The LG Optimus F6 is a decent phone if you don’t care about using a lot of apps and are looking for a modestly priced handset. But at $199 you’re paying more money than it’s worth. With low internal storage, unimpressive video recording, and poor call...

LG Optimus F6 (T-Mobile)

 

The LG Optimus F6 is a value-priced Android smartphone that cuts corners on storage and camera capabilities to hit its price mark. Better T-Mobile values can be found.

An unsubsidized price of less than $300 is hard to ignore, but T-Mobile has better cheap choices. For instance, if you can do without a front camera, LG’s own Optimus F3 is $50 cheaper and a good deal more compact, while the $120 Nokia Lumia 521 offers...

LG Optimus F6 (MetroPCS)

 

The LG Optimus F6 is a well-connected Android smartphone with LTE, NFC, and a decent display. But its limited internal storage, older OS, and poor camera make it less appealing than it looks.

4G LTE support. Dual-band Wi-Fi and NFC. Excellent battery life

Pricey compared with the competition. Poor camera. Below-average call quality. Not enough storage for large apps. Excessive bloatware

The LG Optimus F6 ($199 list) is a midrange Web and Internet Android smartphone, with speedy 4G LTE data and all the usual Google apps. But at this price point with no contract, there are often trade-offs, and in this case you'll have to do without a...

LG Optimus F6 (T-Mobile)

 

The LG Optimus F6 is a value-priced Android smartphone that cuts corners on storage and camera capabilities to hit its price mark. Better T-Mobile values can be found.

Inexpensive given its feature set. Excellent battery life

Poor camera. Extremely limited internal storage. Cluttered interface

LG's Optimus F6 ($49.99 up front and $10/month for 24 months or $289.99) has some of the looks of a higher-end phone—the disco-ball reflective pattern on the back evokes LG's Nexus 4, and the brushed-metal highlights on the side are a classy touch. But...

LG Optimus F6 review:

 

The LG Optimus F6 may not be a powerhouse of a device compared with some other top-tier handsets, but it's still a reliable phone that will satisfy users looking for a simple device on a budget.

The LG Optimus F6 has clear call quality, a decent 5-megapixel shooter, and a bright, responsive screen.

4G LTE data speeds were erratic at times on T-Mobile, and because the handset's equipped with Android 4.1.2, it runs a slightly dated OS.

Competitively priced and stocked with respectable hardware specs, the LG Optimus F6 is a worthy buy for prepaid customers who are big on value.

LG Optimus F6 (T-Mobile) Review

 

The lightweight LG Optimus F6 is a dependable budget smartphone with a big screen and handy apps.

Large and bright screen; Affordable; Lightweight and comfortable design; Useful LG exclusive features

Display not HD; Inconsistent 4G LTE performance; No included stylus for pen features

The lightweight LG Optimus F6 is a dependable budget smartphone with a big screen and handy apps.

LG Optimus F6 Review

 

The Optimus F6 falls squarely in the middle of the high end G2 and entry level Optimus F3. Features include a 4.5” IPS display, LTE support and a dual-core Snapdragon processor, but can they outweigh the compromises made to keep the device affordable?...

Exceptional call quality ; Good fit and finish

Camera performance is underwhelming ; Software can be cluttered at times, and eats much of the phone’s small internal memory

As you would expect LG has made some compromises to keep the Optimus F6 affordable, but for a mid-range device they have put together an overall nice package. The device is well-built, has a good display for its class and incorporates many of the...

The Optimus F6 is an LG cell phone with a good battery life, useful preinstalled apps and a surprisingly good camera. Although the built in storage is low, this LG phone is great if you are looking for a reliable midrange smartphone.

Review: LG Optimus F6 for T-Mobile

 

LG spits out an entry-level Android smartphone for T-Mobile. The budget-friendly Optimus F6 has a lot going for it, and a few things going against it, too.

Awesome in every way but

 

Memory.... I have tried to deal with this issue for over a year. The phone has 1g internal memory and 75% of it is used by the system and it does not acknowledge my 32gb sd card as additional storage. I am in a constant battle with my phone to install...
