The LG Optimus F3 is a very reliable phone.
It only has 1 GB of internal storage and apps cannot be moved onto the SD card.
So if you want to throw away your money go ahead and buy this phone.

Most of the reviews on this phone are pretty accurate. The F3 is relatively compact and comfy in hand. The screen resolution is far from the sharpest available but photos and text and images seem especially vibrant on this phone compared to most in the same price range on Virgin. Build quality though, while super plistic-y, seems solidly made. 4G speed is as good as promised, it's rather sad storage limitations mean you can't make the best use of heftier apps and games in your library.

The LG skin slid over the Android OS (4.1) is not especially exciting, in fact, it's rather text heavy, yet, very clear and easy to navigate through. It's unlikely you'll get confused locating your apps and the various features of the F3 using it. Speaking of apps, LG must be seriously penalized for shipping a phone with only 1.2GB of useable memory and then blocking users from installing apps on a (up to 32GB!) memory card. Many have blamed the version of Android for this horrific problem- it ain't true. The blame falls squarely in LG for this this terrible design choice as there is no reason for any current Android phone to not be able to store and run apps from a card with ease. Sure, storing music, video and other media on the card is nice. But with so, so many apps available that can easily be run from the space of a SD card, intentionally crippling a good product like this is both insulting and infuriating.

For instance, the F3 comes with Polaris' document viewer. A decent enough program. However, if you should want to want to edit or create such docs in the bus depot- you'll need an app like Polaris Office or QuickOffice. These are comparatively large programs, so, you'll chew up lots of system RAM.

Verified Purchase
This will be my 4th Android smartphone & 3rd from LG. After 2 years with the LG Optimus V on Virgin Mobile (VM), I get T-Mobile prepaid a try when I found their LG Optimus L9 at a good price earlier this year. Too bad T-Mobile's prepaid plans aren't as good as VM's, neither is their mobile data network in this part of NW Ohio. So after a month of limping along with a serious Android device, I went back to VM with their Samsung Galaxy S II 4G (as in WiMax). The build quality of the Samsung is quite good, but I never got used to holding the thing, it's a little to large for my liking (see my review elsewhere on Amazon). I did get to like the size of the display (very little squinting needed), and the speakerphone in the car was good enough I didn't need my Bluetooth speakerphone (much). And of course, WiMax is doomed, so the 4G on that device was useless. So when I saw that VM was offering the LG Optimus F3 with 4G LTE, I got one, although Sprint doesn't have much 4G in OH yet.

My first impression of the hardware was favorable: I like the physical Home button, and the build quality is acceptable (I don't think it's as cheap as other reviewers). The size is about right for me, especially the thickness (same as the Samsung).

Other reviewers' complaints/concerns about the internal memory (1.2 GB) are unfounded, in my opinion. I installed all the apps I was using on the Samsung, and still have 600+ MB remaining (that's way more than the ancient Optimus V had to begin with). Worried about space for music, ringtones, photos, etc. ? Get a fast microSD card and put those things there. And VM/LG didn't add too much bloat to the phone; at least they give ways to remove much of it.

The LG F3 is Virgin's first 4G LTE phone with both a light and compact body and an affordable price. It is sometimes discounted to under $100, making it a bargain.

A MAJOR flaw: a tiny 1.2gb of internal memory for apps and app updates. If you are willing to learn how to overcome this flaw, the F3 is a terrific phone. The LG Optimus F3 is half the price of some much larger, much heavier 4G LTE phones.

A MINOR flaw: Wi-Fi connections can be flaky. Half a web page downloads and then Wi-Fi disconnects. I must reset my home router several times a day.

The F3 provides up to 24 hours per battery charge compared with 10 hours for many 4G LTE Android phones. Weak points include a mediocre camera and average rear speaker for music, and a processor too slow for some demanding games.

You can add a 16gb or 32gb SD card to store your music and videos but the limited internal memory will block the installation of some very large games. I was able to move some of my larger apps to the external SD card, but Google apps, such as Maps and Navigation must remain in internal memory.

FREEING INTERNAL MEMORY: You can free a ton of internal memory in "settings" by going to the "all apps" tab. Next, look at every app using more than 1 meg of memory. If you don't use an app, uninstall its updates, uncheck notifications, then select delete or disable.

Apps most people can delete or disable include Google+, Google Books, Google Magazines, Google TV, Google Books, and the Chrome browser app. Be sure to uninstall all updates before disabling an app. You can re-enable an app in the future.

CASE WARNING: The Sprint/Virgin Mobile LS720 model has different body contours and microphone placment compared with the T-Mobile/MetroPCS MS659 version.
