    Awsome. I cant say enough good things about this phone. I am pleasantly surprised at the performance, quality, features, etc. that LG managed to pack in such a small phone. I love the convenience of its size, for it fits virtually anywhere. In any pockets, purse, etc. Sound quality is amazing. I have never enjoyed listening to pandora radio as much as I do on this phone. Processor speed is great. Storage space not bad for the price. It fits more than a few apps and even video games. This phone is priced at half what my galaxy is priced at and honestly, in my opinion, is twice as good. Awsome purchase. LG rocks!

    I’ve had a Verizon Pre-Paid device for a short while and got tired of dealing with the old Thunderbolt I had for the last half a year or so. I bought this device because it has a removable battery, microSD slot and oddly enough a smaller screen than my other devices. Although for those looking around this and the LG Optimus Exceed 2 have nearly the same specifications and whose price difference can be rather close depending on the brick and mortar store of one’s choosing. The Exceed 2 has a slightly bigger screen, Knock capability, 1GB of RAM and Gorilla Glass.

    I primarily purchased this because I wanted something a bit smaller to use a tiny Instant Messaging device and many of the non-phones of that category are either awkward tablets or devices that are horribly slow. Yes…There are tablets sold that are 4″. It works well for those purpose (I’m pretty sure Skype would probably bork itself with its absurd requirements).

    OS – Right now this device runs 4.4.2 KitKat. I’ve had KitKat on my Galaxy S3 from another carrier and from what I see LG doesn’t have much of a skin on this device. It does not support Knock (some sort of gesture system I’m not familiar with) and seems to be rather stable and quick. While 512MB of RAM is a bit meager for such a device I’ve had to come and understand how Android manages its own memory. Many apps once they are done running will remain cached for next use. While the number of simultaneous apps are limited using one or two apps at a time and one shouldn’t encounter a problem. That is with the exception of Google Chrome and there is no stock browser to use. The phone is quick but it is sluggish going back to the Home Screen at times. I don’t think it is a flaw with little memory as a quad core Optimus with 1GB of RAM has the same issue. The only thing I found amusing is this device keeps track of the rooted status and the date/time of last hard reset.

    CPU – The Zone 2 runs a 1.2GHz dual-core. Pretty quick and no issues with games. However the smaller the screen the less effort the CPU needs to process all the pixels.

    LCD – The screen is a small 3.5″ with a resolution of 480 X 320. The quality of the LCD is crisp however some of the operating system’s fonts may appear to be blurry at times. This is not because of the LCD itself but because many of the fonts (like the battery percentage) aren’t designed to accommodate such a small resolution. It was a bit annoying at first but I’ve since gotten used to it. It displays a fairly nice contrast but each person has their own preferences to their displays. I’m fine as long as it looks nice. There is no Gorilla Glass so a screen protector is recommended.

    Wireless Connectivity – From what I’ve messed with this device has 3G, 2.4GHz WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0. It does support a mobile hotspot over 3G. It also supports the FTP protocols on Bluetooth which I prefer using over their USB options. LG for some reason does NOT support the Mass Device Storage Class for the SD card. Which means the phone is attached as a media player rather than a removable drive.

    Storage – Like Samsung LG tries to be politically correct by stating the phone is “4GB” when in reality it’s 3.8GB (and distorts the Storage Usage chart). It has 1.90GB reserved for the system and 1.9GB originally available to the user. As of currently once a Google Account is attached and Update is pressed on Google play it drops to about 1.3GB available. While the device supports a MicroSDHC card up to 32GB there is no option to save files onto the card. This is probably more of a limitation in KitKat rather than a specific choice of LG as Google decided to beef up security by not allowing full access to external memory cards. It would be nice to store some of the large game files onto the SD card, though. Edit: 01/14/15 While some apps allow moving portions of it to the SD card, what I was referring to is that downloaded external components to apps (that are either downloaded as Additional Data through the Play Store or by the game itself) are stored on the internal memory only.

    Camera – There is a single 3MP camera on the back without a flash. I generally don’t take many pictures with a phone because I often smudge the lens on the back so I can’t comment at the quality.

    Phone call quality – From the few calls I’ve made it seems to sound fair when it comes to talking and hearing. The only problem I have is that the proximity sensor is very, very insensitive. It takes a few seconds from moving the phone away for the screen to light up to punch in the numbers for when I had to navigate Verizon’s help system. Speakerphone quality is OK but it may distort at higher volume.

    Battery life – So far this phone’s battery life has been pretty great given I’m in a high coverage area. The lowest I’ve gotten it down to so far is 55%, and that was with the phone…

    Great as an MP3 player, not so much for a phone, July 16, 2015

    Sandal (New England) –

    Nice little MP3 player, media center, etc. I would not recommend anybody buy this as a primary phone, but for a music player it’s great if you put a better MP3 app on it (the native one is limited). You don’t need to activate it as a phone. Just quickly do volume up, volume down, home, back and bypass the activation screen. Put in a 32G micro SD with music, sign into your google account, put on a better music player, a podcast app and a radio app (all free) and this thing is great on wifi and/or bluetooth. Plus you can a few other goodies on it like remote controls for certain media devices. The battery life is outstanding. I charged it up and spent hours on wifi installing apps and then playing music on bluetooth, checking email, playing with settings, and it’s still over 50%

    It’s small, the camera is terrible, it only runs on 3G network. I can’t comment on its reception or voice quality but Big Red’s prepaid service is way overpriced. If you must use Verizon towers there are cheaper options that use them and also use 4G. But as a pocket player with headphones or a speaker you just can’t beat this for the price. Another pro – it has no bloatware on it. And it runs Kit Kat 4.4.2 As a cheap and effective MP3 player and wifi-only device it’s five stars.
