Taken a pounding and still working great after 2 years

Its sad that LG didn't release an updated model with the same small form factor.

ive had this phone (MetroPCS. LG Q7+ {model #lm-q610ma}). now for 1-1/2 years. i bought it as an upgrade from my lg aristo. Ive had a really decent experience with it. Its got a good allotment of ram, the speed of the processor is really good. Its got good amount of onboard storage, and it will read and use a 128gb sd card. which i have installed as well its a samsung uhxd or something 128gb. sd. the camera hardware with 16 megapixel is quite good. i have found that the cameras, settings menu leaves something to be desired, with regard to selectable resolutions, it goes from 16mp 4.3 to 12mp 16.9 or something, main point it needs attention, other than that it does take very nice photos for being a camera in a phone and a budget phone at that. my samsung galaxy s5 sm900r4. had a 16mp. camera and this camera does just as good,
another note on the camera about taking pictures, ive noticed that some of my photos when imported to my macbook laptops, some of them are inverted or upside down, im not fully certain how this happens whether its due to me actually not realising which way is up regarding how the hardware or software in the phone is programmed or is orientated, as it doesnt indicate it when taking pics, but i have typically always made a note to have the phone with volume buttons upward in landscape on most all my phones and its seem3d t0 be correct.

for anyone interested in audio. It is hi-res lossless certifide device, its got dts 3dx and apt hdx audio. and in the developer menu its got a bluetooth settings section for 1.4 to 1.6 then you can select ldac apx apx hd, and then its got "enable optional codecs". along with a selectable range of sample rates from system default. then 44k 48k 88.2 and 96k
and then A selectable bits per sample setting of 16 24 or 32
and then you can change the playback quality by adjusting bluetooth codec from best effort adaptive balanced, or optimized for connection all the way to oprimized for audio quality with 990kbps/909kbps and you can tell the difference its amazing sound. you need to have hi res certified equipment as well if streaming or using aux cord connected to radio in home or car. and amplifier in car too. but its well worth it.

now keep in mind im a pretty basic phone user, i dont play resource heavy games or any games on my phone, i mainly just use it for email, web, messaging, internet, etc.

the phone does do a good job at keep active connectivity to the 4g and lte. which was not the case with the lg aristo it was horrid at maintaining an active data connection.

and ive not haD any issue with the battery draining fast, but like i said im not very demanding of my phone.

the fingerprint reader is very well sorted. ive had a couple times where it seemed like it was being picky. about the placement of my finger and its ability to read it, but aside from that its pretty reliable or predictable,

ive owned a lot of LG phones, and they rarely do me wrong. the orignal aristo might be the exception. mainly regarding the onboard ram in it, and the annoying issue of it not being capable of running both full versions of facebook app and fb messenger app. the messenger chat head icon on side of screen would without fail. suddenly dissappear (app would crash due to not enough ram) so you had to either run the lite version of either fb or messenger. the phones system readout would display the memory usage at a constant 99% no matter what. it was "optimized" it said, with typically less than 500mb of free ram but thats no issue with q7+ for metro pcs. well the other issue i mentioned was the data connectivity thing.

all in all its been a really good device. .

One really neat feature ive come across and idk if its on All LG devices but in the factory loaded default app for sms and mms and advanced messaging, theres a neat feature you can use called "schedule send". in which if selected you can then type out the message and then set a time in advance and it will send the message at the selected time ( i use it if i remember something in the middle of the night and dont want to wajke the person with one of those late night messages and possibly wake them up for something that wasnt an emergency. like if i forgot to mention something during a call to my mom and i remember it at 2am, then i select schedule send. set the time at like 7am (when im asleep). and compose the message and hit the normal send button. and then when the time hits 7am. phone sends the message im passed out, mom gets it, and all is well. ). its a really cool useful feature.

hope this helps

it's a decent phone, Pro 4Gb and 64 Ram, face recognition and fingerprint. Con small screen and battery suck.

I have one for about a year, and this will be last LG phone I'll have in a long time.

Pros:
cheap,
decent size,
water resistant,
sd card.

Cons:
hardware:
mediocre screen,
bad camears,
no nfc,
no 5GHz wifi (and the 2.4GHz isn't great),
single color notification led.

software:
overheats,
battery drains way too quickly if in use,
OS updates are few and far between,

And since the Pie update:
it claims the 'SD card was removed unexpectedly" every day or two, requiring a reboot.
it occationaly "forgets" some settings after a reboot.

TL;DR:
Don't. If you do buy this crap, don't upgrade to pie.

Anonymous, 28 Sep 2020Brutaly slow when browsingIt's an amazing lightweight phone. Got it for $350 from T-Mobile on August 5, 2019 and it's audio features are amazing. Fast when browsing Chrome or any other web browser (using Xfinity wifi) and games run a lot faster with Snapdragon than the Samsung Galaxy On5. Taking HDR pictures and using Google's Snapseed app makes my pictures stand out perfectly.

Worst phone I've ever owned.
Pros:
. water resistant (In some areas of the phone)
. good design and decent resolution

Cons:
. Sub-par selfie cam
. rear camera does not get close to 30fps
. phone overheats very quickly
. battery drains completely in 3hrs
. Phone shuts down randomly
. Phone is incredibly slow
. Phone freezes for 30min at a time
. Freezes consistently
. Small amount of ram
. Weak cpu
. Complete inability to run certain apps
. Does not overheat, but burns to touch when it overheats
. Not entirely water resistant
. Small battery capacity (says 3000mah) performance ~ 1800mah
Overall, the phone is terrible. Do not waste your money on this trash.

I like this phone because it is compact and waterproof and it was cheap - I don't need anything else.

Worst phone ever. Had mine now for 18 months. Can't wait for my 2 year contract to come to an end.
Don't buy this phone unless you really want to be disappointed.
Freeze frequently, Slow oh so slow!
Our family have been an LG supporters for awhile now. LG G4 what a great phone at its time.

Do you game on it though? If so which games do you like to play on it? Just curious

Im using the refubish q720k model' sold in Korea. For me its pretty good for mid range phones. The low light cam, sreen size, speed are all good. The bad side is the loud speaker

Performance is similiar to moto g7 power minus the battery and super amount of storage. The SD 450 and 632 are very similar. The back of the phone is made of plastic, the frame is made of aluminium and the screen is made of glass. If you get it then get a screen protector at the very least. You will get 50gb of usable internal storage but you will not get the option to use SD card as internal storage. Someone from france figured it out but people were rude to him so he deleted all his work which was very sad. Also this device is running a 32bit OS and a 64 bit Chipset. So you cannot play 64 bit games with it. Hope that helps.

I received this device as a gift Christmas 2018. It lasted till last April of this year.

My experience has been good (Ish). With my phone the charger port had difficulties connecting a year into use. I’d have to position it in certien ways to ensure it was charging.

The general life span for the battery of these phones are 2 years. I suppose I could have replaced it. But decided to give another device a chance.

It started draining quickly, and had problems recharging as expected from an older phone.

It was great at multitasking, the finger print piece makes it so nifty to unlock your phone. I enjoyed the phone for as long as it lasted.
