Smart Phone?--No Dice--It's a Pretty Dumb Phone

 

It's not that this is such a bad phone, it's just that it isn't a particularly good one either. It pretty much does most of what I ask a phone to do, and a little more. My only problem with it is it's failure to deliver on a few of the minor fronts. ...

It's Cheap, and Gets Great Reception

Navigation can be haphazard, and it "Butt Calls" at will

lg 500g TRACFONE

 

I am really amazed at the quality of this Tracfone. I had tried the 800 G (the one that was touch) and after it broke 3 times without me doing anything to it, I decided I'd get this (to take on vacations where I dont want to damage my current phone)....

Great little phone,great for texting.Excellent value.

 

I don't want to offend people, but for the money do you really need a smart phone.I can see if your work requires it,but dollar for dollar you can't beat this phone.I bought one for my daughter and ran back out and bought one for myself.

QWERTY keyboard great for texting. Mp3 player,decent camera. A ton of tools (converter calculator alarm clock and much much more. Can't beat the price.Lots of neat little features

Not much just needed a memory card and transfer cable less then 15.00 total.The phone can easy be found for 20.00

Consumer review by:

Less than thrilling.

 

Not thrilled with it except as a backup.

The sound on a call is decent. Menu relatively easy to operate. The price of $16.99 is excellent though

Sound quality is good on calls but it does not a radio. Have only owned it like 2 days and have not found out if it has a speaker phone.. or at least a way to turn it on ; Pretty poor considering the other offerings on the market

Good prepaid phone, too bad I had half a lemon!

 

The phone itself is a good phone, save for the large screen; but a bad smartphone. Mine also came with a broken speaker, which is really bad, because it's the most important part of a phone!

extremely long battery life! I ran this phone for 3 days straight, and the battery indicator is still full. Supposedly it has 11 days standby ; The only good about the OS is that it's not a battery hog like android ; This phone actually lasts for a week

The phone's speaker is broken. It's very hard to hear conversation at louder volumes. It came broken from the store. Don't really want to return it ; The back speaker works just fine ; It does not have android, thus has almost zero free apps ; It has

I love this phone. It has a movie player and MP3 player

 

Other than the lack of good tech support this is a great phone. I would recommend it to anyone.

Very clear cellphone, also movie player in 3gpp format, video recorder with sound, sound recorder, mp3 player, audio note taker, measures converter, currency converter, and tons of other features

Does NOT come with a very complete tech support manual. I had to contact Tracfone tech support to find out how to Fast Forward movies. The manual didn't explain it ; The Tracfone tech support forum also leaves much to be desired. It is very difficult to
