User opinions and reviews

  • Lorenzo

I've had this phone since 2016. Such a great phone. No problems at all until I accidentally dropped it into the water a few months ago. Even so, it still works, but I can't make my call audible to the other end unless on speaker mode.

  • Smithy

Phonearena audio measurements are not using high impedance headphones probably because Loudest phones when using > 50 ohms headphones are by far LG phones with quad dac.
