LG listens to the people, They know how to give us what we want starting with the removable battery ✔ Expandable Storage ✔ Excellent Camera ✔ I bought my V10 5 day's ago and I am loving it more each day. I had the G4 but when I saw the V10 I bought it and it is a better phone in my opinion. I love taking pictures of my Grandchildren and it's very easy to get that perfect shot every time using the auto mode. They come out perfect every time. The battery life is good. I like to be able to go to the settings and stop app's that are running in the background to save on my battery life. Which helps a lot. Never has lagged on me. Very fast opening app's. I enjoy the Google Now on it because I enjoy reading about new technology. Better placement of the speaker it's now on the bottom of the phone. Great sound and volume. Very Sturdy with the Stainless Steel frame. I love holding it, it's got some heaf to it not like the G4. I've dropped it from about 3 feet on my hardwood floors and it didn't leave a mark and the screen didn't crack like some of the reviews I've read. Compared to the G for which is so Featherlite it doesn't even feel like you have have a phone in your hand. Whereas the v10 you know you have a sturdy phone the second you pick it up the feel is very sturdy very well made with a stainless steel sides to the rubber's like materials on the top and the bottom of the phone where it is great for protection if dropped it. Then back to the battery, just replace it with a fresh one when needed but if you don't have a extra the V10 charges very fast from 0 to 100 percent in 45 to 60 minutes depending on if you are saving picture's which takes longer. Great fingerprint scanner! Very fast Work's every time for me. Also I love that you can sit the lock screen to show you the weathe. If it's raining it looks so real the first time I saw Blew me away it looked like it was raining in my phone. LOL. I could go on and on about all the special thing's this phone does and I'm finding new stuff every day.
When I first saw this device I was not interested in it at all. It looked too much like the Apple stuff I never liked and I know HTC says thay did the Metal unibody first at least between the two but when Apple made this version of the design so popular no one really cares who made it first it's who they think made it better. Yes, Apple has some great ideas in making things better but it's never been my thing. I went in with a friend so they could pick up a new phone and they were pretty set on wanting the M8 and it was a great phone, it was the same one I had and I recommended it highly. Then we got to talking to the *cough*shark*cough* salesmen and more options were thrown in. We got to looking at the Note 5 but there were so many features that would never be used and the fact that there would be a learning curve with the UI that the money just wasn't justified. So we started looking at the HTC's again and saw that the A9 was out. Since we came from HTC (my friend still using the awesome Evo LTE, yes we are on Sprint, deal with it) it was a huge jump forward, the UI was comfortable. As we went through the A9 we saw that the UI wasn't layed on thick and we could still see some vanilla OS shine through not to mention that it was coming with Marshmallow, which was only available on the Nexus devices so far. We found out that it came with 32GB internal storage and still had the desired micro SD card slot wich was nice since the Note 5 didn't. It also sported a finger print sensor also, which was a nice addition to secutiry. The camera was an improved 13MP with OIS this round and had great features like RAW and fast capture times. As we were looking at this I stopped looking at it for it's originally copied design and started looking at it as a small super computer. As we were checking out my friend I desided that I didn't want to live with the cracked screen I've had for several months now and instead of replacing the phone through the warrenty I signed up for the A9 as well and have been happy with it ever since. After having it for some time now I still love it, it's fast and works really well for whatever I endup doing with it. The only issue I have is the battery life is not good. It's ok but being as thin as it is there didn't seem to be space for anything better. If I could improve this device only (I have houghts on what I want for the M10 or whatever it is, but for another time) I would want it to be thick enough that the camera didnt stick out so it would stay safer and use that added space to put a bigger battery in side. I know there is quick charge 2.0 which can be upgraded to 3.0 one day but what if I'm not near an out let. I have been carrying external battery packs (I still don't think a removable battery is a feature and shouldn't be counted against a device if it doesnt have it which Phonedog and other reviewers seem to do, but don't complain about it when they talk about Apple devices because it's never been a feature on them to experience [soap box rant complete]) for a while now so I’m fine but what about those that don’t. With all this said I'm happy with the device and am glad to have it as my daily driver, and if the M10 or whatever is something I really want I will upgrade the wife take the M10 and giver her the A9 (don't judge, as long as it works the way she wants it she doesn't care what device it is she uses, so there ;p).
The phone is absolutely gorgeous, as stated the back is a huge fingerprint magnet for sure. The screen is beautiful, with very vibrant colors (duh, AMOLED). People wanna bash onot the batterm because it's not removable and down on MaH from the Note 4, but it gets me through the day without an issue and I couldn't ask for more. The camera is what everyone says it is, the best on the market, it's amazing what it can do and the quality of pictures it takes. Now I will admit that I've been an AVID hater on TouchWiz, with bad past experiences (Note 3), but Samsung has done a great job with the newest iteration, and I have to say I'm very impressed. Overall this phone is a BEAST, anyone second guessing the purchase, just do yourself a favor and just give it a shot...you won't be disappointed.
Great screen and hardware. Wouldn't have minded if they bumped it to 5.2 8 or 5.9 inches. Will accept the smaller battery in exchange for rapid charging and wireless charging. Great, responsive camera. Nice upgrade from the 4 if you're ok with losing external memory... Samsung gives you free cloud storage.
This phone is wonderful and it shows by the fact this phone is number one people's choice. Even though people talk about the galaxy phone this one to meet is the best out right now.
Damn, I want the Note 5... even willing to pay full price. I just can't justify it... sure the phone is "slightly" faster.. and has 4 gigs of RAM.. and the S pen is a bit better, but with no SD slot and no removable battery I am finding it hard to justify the expense. The Note 4 phone was one terrific upgrade. Hell, I still haven't explored all the options available on the Note 4. Everything is exceptional including the camera... screens change very quickly.... and the S pen is a major upgrade from the Note 3. Help me someone, tell me your experience with the Note 5 and why I should upgrade.
This is the best company for long distance. I been with them for over 10 years, and have never had a problem with them. My mother is also with them. We have never had a problem. you also get a low bill. I have to call my son every day. and it is below $10.00 a month. You can't beat that.
Good feel in hand on first touch. But easy slipping away on real life with out good grip case. Looking so exclusive and elegant. Grossly glass body make it shinny and solid strong than plastics SAM on the past. Touch-Wiz is diet and slim flow on fast lane of Android. Thumb you up guy Note5.
Every time I get a new phone it seems it's the best one ever so no change with the Note 4. This time it may be for longer though. The display is fantastic, I married into Samsung Android some time ago and love it. The pen: how did I ever live without it. The size is perfect. Looking at the reviews of the 5 I think I may save myself some money and stay with the(current) best phone ever
If you can get past their generally bad customer service, Tracfone is reliable and won't cost you a lot per month. Even if you use your cellphone A LOT they have monthly plans that are a lot cheaper than the big carriers. So, you get the reliability of the big carriers without the high monthly charge. You don't have to put up with Tracfone's el cheapo phones. If you have an unlocked CDMA phone (Verizon or Sprint), you can bring it with you. But, it will probably take Tracefone five business days to get the SIM card to you. And, if you have an iPhone, they'll probably screw up and send you a standard/micro SIM instead of the Nano that iPhones use so it'll take at least another five business days to get the correct one to you. Yes, their customer service is THAT bad and they appear to be very low-tech. You can get an unlocked Verizon Galaxy S3 for $150 or an iPhone 5S from $300 on ebay. You have to decide whether you want to pay $45 per month for a Verizon prepaid plan for Verizon's customer service or pay much less with Tracfone and it's lousy customer service. Personally, I prefer Tracfone's prices and since they use Verizon's network, the service itself is just as good. Also, you carryover minutes with Tracfone and get no carryover at all from Verizon. Currently, I have something like 48 hours saved up with Tracfone and my plan won't expire for a year so I pay nothing for a year. Their lousy customer service is just something to endure. Once you get past it, you're fine.
Just dumped Verizon. I got tired of being a loyal 8 year customer paying about 170 for 2 lines and watching TV ads offering 4 lines for a $100 to everyone and anyone. Why didn't I get a call saying 'hey loyal customer we are going to lower your rate'? I researched Cricket for a couple of weeks and made the switch last week. Store and reps were very helpful and the port over process worked with no issues. Data was copied over with no issues however there were a couple of contacts that didn't make it. No biggie. I have plenty of 'bars' and everything works as well as when I was with the big V. The biggest reason to try Cricket is there are NO contracts. I can cancel anytime and I like being able to shop and save. I'm not paying for a massive marketing campaign. All I want to do is make phone calls, send a txt, read the web now and then. I'm saving $80 a month for the same service!!
battery is here and there but get me home with almost 5 hour of on screen time 13 hours but next year just go up on process or ram and 3200 mah so one can get 6 and a half on screen and perfect of its back to lg
One of my phones with AT&T was off contract a few months ago so I decided why not try this Defense Mobile service. It's prepaid without contracts so there was really no risk. I ended up being very surprised by the service I got! I was expecting it to be just another prepaid phone company. Turns out this a company that's competing with the Big Dogs (ATT, VZ, T-mo etc) but at the price of Cricket! I have the same exact coverage I used to have, better service and pay a fraction of the price. I am going to pay the early termination fees on my other lines because I just don't want to deal with AT&T anymore and I save enough here to make up for it. Plus my kids think its so cool to have it say "DEFENSE" or "MARINES" on their phones instead of "AT&T" (I do too...). If you're eligible for this service and not taking advantage of it, you're doing something wrong. James S. SSgt USMC Ret
I switched from ATT to Defense Mobile back in January and have had a great experience so far. I pay about half of what I paid for on ATT, with the same exact coverage and more LTE data. I love the mission of the company and cannot get over the quality of their customer service. I try not to call customer service as much as I can with other companies (spending hours talking to a call center in India is not a great use of my time). With Defense Mobile, I actually enjoy talking to the reps! They are all Veterans and are eager to help in any way they can - which is really refreshing. If you're hesitant about Defense Mobile, don't be. They are the real deal and are offering a level of service that extremely rare in this industry.
Boost provides affordable voice and data service and if you shop around you can get a great phone for a good price (EBAY buy new). Go Moto G best value in android class. Moto G uses 3G but I don't need LTE speed 3G speed does just fine. I save a few bucks by not using the LTE network. Seldom if ever do I have dropped call. 3G data works great in Seattle and surrounding areas. I have two family members on boost and all is good.
This phone just obliterates the competition. The build quality is so superior to the horrible plastic LGs and other ghetto devices. The software is a lot smoother too. No resets or black screens. Camera is awesome. I'd like to see better battery life but hey, what else is new?
I love the phone its beautiful but I did find it quite easy to scuff up the aluminum, which was kind of a downer because it's a beautiful phone. Everything that is supposed to work on the phone works fantastically , don't have lap top? doesn't matter the size and sound of this phone makes it more than capable of streaming movies , enjoyably which can't be said for all the flags ships out. The battery life is a little less than what I expected but, with great reviews of the up coming update it's hopeful to change. The camera does need a little bit of play to focus, mind you the trade off for the speakers is worth it believe me ( might not even be a trade off with the new update) . If you want a phone for social media, and pictures this may not be the phone for you, but if you want a phone that is pretty much a complete entertainment hub, then this is the one for you.
This phone is awesome and one of the best phones out right now. Love the sound and build. The customization of sense 7 is top of the line. I'm not understanding why it doesn't get the kudos it deserves but if you are looking for a great smartphone get this.
My Wife and I have been with Tracfone for over 15+ years. This was my first Android and I realized I didn't understand nothing about it. I will agree with most of the comments concerning Customer Service it can seem very poor at times. Remember this is a "Cheap Carrier". Once you get that all worked out you have a nice basic android. This Phone has always worked perfect for my Wife and I. Some massive changes to my phone have been made it is a true custom device. You can tweak these phones and have features that only come with the "High End Devices". Oh!!! I almost forgot it's "Free" and very easy to figure out. Once you figure out how to ""Root"" this Phone you can customize it to the Max. You are only limited by your own imagination and the modules(50+)that are available for your device which is running 4.1.2 JellyBean. You can put a 32GB SDcard in this phone which I did and make sure you get the Series '10' Super Ultra 32GB Card. It will cost more but will be worth it when you are looking for speed while using your device. First off ""Root"" this phone then D/L SuperUser SU. Then D/L Root Checker it will tell you if the device has "Root". I used TowelRoot <--(Look up on YouTube) it's very simple and you don't need a PC. Go to the Xposed Module Site and D/L Xposed Module Installer <--(Look up on YouTube) once that is done you have access to all the Modules that will work for your device. Go to the Xposed Module Repository and have fun customizing your device. XDA Developers Web Site has so much information about Android and anything you can think of concerning "Root" and they are very friendly and helpful. PS.. I am a Senior Citizen 6 Months ago I didn't even know what a Android was much less how to use it. If I can do this you can too.

Just ported over from virgin mobile and so far I'm pleased. I took the offer for the free after rebate Nokia 530 and the flat 35$ a month after auto pay plan. I plan on upgrading phones at the end of the year when new Windows 10 phones come out as there should be lots of options with AT&T's selection of phones that can also be used on Crickets service since they are owned by AT&T and used there Cell towers. After my phone arrived by UPS it was a snap to set up online. I called customer service to change my account pin number for personal preference and it was no problem. Customer service was outsourced to country outside the US and the Agent seemed to be reading from a script for everything but she was pleasant enough, easy to understand, and handled my request as needed. So far I am pleased with Cricket. My signal and coverage has improved and I will save a few dollars a month with the flat 35$ a month plan. They also have a referral program as other reviewers here have noted. If your take referral within your first month of service you receive 25$ as does the referrer. This is my personal referral link. Please use and help the both of us make some money, Thanks! https://mycricket.sparkrefer.com/5D63kGc
