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.

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.

Before I start my review let me list the previous phones I have used for reference:
LG Optimus Elite
LG Optimus V

This phone blows all of them out of the water. I am 58 yrs old so this review is for the older crowd, less about how many apps you can use, more about how intuitive and easy this phone is to use. The well thought out home screen can hold all of your pertinent short cuts. A quick swipe from the top, gives you quick access to, sound, wifi, sync, and quick memo. Email setup is easy, with plenty of settings to increase or limit the number of emails stored on the phone. I sync my contacts with Google, fast and easy. Searching contacts is simplified by tapping one of the alphabet letters running down the screen on the right. No more flicking endlessly to get to contacts starting with "y"
Placing and receiving calls is seamless. Battery life is excellent and the "%" of battery life remaining can be displayed next to the battery icon. I talked 5hrs on a Bluetooth head set yesterday and still had 38% remaining. last but not least, the screen is crisp and clear with touch inputs responding exactly as you intend, hard to "fat finger" a text. The voice to text option is the most accurate I have ever used. Words appear almost as fast as I speak. I highly recommend this phone for the "older" crowd, if you are looking for one that you don't need a computer science degree to operate.

So far I love my new Optimus F3. I upgraded to the LG Optimus F3 from the LG Optimus Elite. It was truly a worthwhile upgrade. Best parts I like about the Optimus F3 is that it have a more powerful processor, more RAM memory, a larger screen, a newer version of jellybean and a front and rear camera. All these new feature gave me no regrets about dropping my Elite for the F3. The Optimus F3 have given me a totally new smartphone experience. Everything downloads faster, all applications load and operate faster and everything looks better.
