LG Volt

 

If you're looking for a smartphone that'll impress your friends, play the latest games or take great pictures, this is not the phone for you. The Volt is aimed squarely at folks with tight budgets, or who simply don't want to spend all that much on a...

The LG Volt offers great battery life and LTE connectivity for a paltry sum.

Dull, uninspired hardware and a low-res screen are the causalities of that low price. Call quality is also disappointing.

Affordable LTE connectivity and a long-lasting battery may be hampered by meager call quality, but the low price tag just might sway the right folks.

LG Volt (Boost Mobile)

 

The LG Volt smartphone shines on Boost Mobile thanks to its beefy battery, Spark LTE compatibility, and affordable price.

Well-built. Android 4.4. Supports Spark LTE. Big battery. Built-in IR emitter

Mediocre display and cameras. Low internal storage

Though far from the electrifying force its name might suggest, the LG Volt is a potent Android smartphone for the price ($179.99) on Boost Mobile. It's essentially a rebranded LG Lucid 3, but Boost bumps the battery capacity up to a whopping 3,000mAh,...

LG Flare LX165 (Virgin Mobile)

 

The LG Flare is a decent choice for taking advantage of Virgin Mobile's payLo plans, and at under $20 up front, it's a steal.

Good voice quality. Lightweight. Brightly lit numeric keypad.

Terrible battery life. No camera or music player. Bluetooth pairing is needlessly complicated. Proprietary AC adapter.

Plans, Apps, and Conclusions Virgin Mobile's payLo plans for the LG Flare are quite inexpensive. A 1500-minute, one-month plan that includes 500 text messages and a paltry 10MB of Web access costs $30. You can also get a 400-minute plan for $20, or pay...

LG 101 (Virgin Mobile)

 

Lacking a camera and even Bluetooth, the LG 101 is the most basic of cell phones for Virgin Mobile customers.

Very lightweight. Big number keys.

Terrible screen. No Bluetooth. Short battery life. No camera or music player.

Apps, Multimedia, and Conclusions The home screen is especially ugly, with blurry icons and tiny fonts that look too much alike. The main menu consists of nine icons in a grid pattern. With the LG 101's low resolution and slow data radio, Web browsing...

LG Flare LX175 - black (Virgin Mobile) review: LG Flare LX175 - black (Virgin Mobile)

 

Virgin Mobile is known for its simple entry-level phones, and the new LG Flare, or LX175, is no exception. The second such LG phone with the carrier--the Aloha was the first--the Flare boils it down to the basics and even lacks a VGA camera. However,...

The Virgin Mobile Flare is a basic entry-level flip phone with a speakerphone, Bluetooth, and voice dialing.

The Virgin Mobile Flare feels a bit cheap, and its speakerphone call quality was so-so.

The Virgin Mobile Flare is a simple, easy-to-use, affordable phone from Virgin Mobile.

Pretty Nice

 

Wanted to upgrade from my previous phone to an Android So after doing some research I decided to give this one a chance and I'm glad did.

Good entry level Android device

 

This phone has a reasonable price and works well if you don't install many apps. Because of the limited RAM, I experienced freezing on a constant basis. I would not recommend this device to any but those who will be using limited apps.

IR blaster is worthless

 

The IR blaster only works with the app that comes on the phone. LG uses a proprietary api for their IR blaster to all of the IR remote apps on the play store don't work. LG, fix this issue.

Decent Phone

 

Ease of operability. I wish it came with more memory for apps and photos but if you upload immediately afterwards you can keep the memory free. I haven't tried the music storage yet, so that's a different review.

easy to use, Quality
