3 out of 5 eggsGreat phone, substandard antenna

Pros: LG's software additions to the Android OS are fantastic.
Phone itself is fast and responsive.

Cons: With my old phone (Samsung Vibrant S), I never lost connectivity to the tower within my own home. With the LG Optimus F6, I frequently lose connection which forces the phone to switch over to wifi mode. While it's great that TMO has this feature, it does highlight the fact that the F6 has a poorer signal than my 4yr old Vibrant.

Other Thoughts: I would have recommended this phone to my wife (who wants a new phone) had it not been for the signal issues. As it stands, we're looking elsewhere.

2 out of 5 eggsGood Phone - LG Warranty Does NOT Protect Consumer

Pros: Lots of Features

Cons: Small/Limited Memory for Apps.
Most apps can not be installed on SD Card.
Warranty is subjective.
Warranty does not protect consumer investment.
LG has poor customer support.

Other Thoughts: BUYER BEWARE:
WARRANTY is written in terms that allow LG to deny repairs, LG has poor customer support. LG Service cited 2% of their products required a warranty repair.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter When Rooted and Link2Sd Enabled

Pros: LTE, Nice display, Well-built, Nice functionality, Easy to root, Can be used on T-Mobile and AT&T networks (after unlocking)

Cons: Too little system memory, Dual-core CPU

Other Thoughts: I'll start my review by including some answers to common questions.

1) Is this phone unlocked? In other words, is it locked to T-Mobile?

It is not unlocked. It is a T-Mobile phone. You can unlock it however. Congress just passed a bill that ensures that carriers must unlock your phone if you no longer have a contract and the phone is yours (you've paid it off). You can call T-Mobile to request it be unlocked. Or... you could Google "How to unlock the T-Mobile LG F6". There are lots of links to instructions and even Youtube videos.

2) Can this phone be used on thAT&T network?

You can use this phone on AT&T. You just have to unlock your phone from T-Mobile. Both carriers Use GSM, HSPA and LTE! Check the frequencies each carrier uses and match them up with the frequencies that this phone operates upon. You'll see that this phone matches up to AT&T quite nicely.

3) Can this phone be used in other countries?

If you pay T-Mobile for International calls and data for the time you are in East Asia, you can call for about $0.20/minute. Be careful to get the plan that fits your needs (calling to US, calling to local landlines in the country, calling cell phones, etc.) My wife and I just went to China and were able to make calls and get 2G data and texting for $0.20/minute.

4) Can this phone be rooted?

I rooted the phone, and added a 32 GB memory card. I formatted the card into 2 partitions; the first is a "FAT32" partition and the second one is a "EXT4" partition. Next, just install the app "Link2Sd" which basically, swaps your paltry 1.2 GB of free system memory with the "EXT4" partition, giving you a much larger "system" memory.

The pro version of Link2Sd is only $2.35 and it gives you the ability to link all of your apps and data to the SD card automagically when you install an app. You can also move the apps that come with the phone, over to the SD card. Just don't try to move the Link2Sd app or any of the Android system apps. You can move apps like Chrome, the Google Play Store app, GMail, etc.

I formatted each partition to 16GB. The FAT32 partition is seen as "external storage". You can store anything you want there (music, movies, pictures) The EXT4 partition holds all of your apps and data.

There's a tool that I used to format the 32 GB SD card called "MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition". It's a "Windows" program and is free. If you have a Linux PC, it's even easier, using the partition manager "GParted".

To root the phone, I used "SafeRoot". Just Google it and you'll find instructions on how to use it to free your phone. Once you're rooted, you can delete apps that you don't want taking up space, like some of the T-Mobile apps that come with it.

I was worried when I purchased this phone for my son that it wouldn't have enough memory, but the Link2Sd app really made it a good phone for him. And at only $99.99 from NewEgg, it was a no-brainer! He's very happy with the phone so far. My Nexus 5 is be

5 out of 5 eggs$99 - Nice, light and 4G!

Pros: Got this for my Mom to replace her basic phone. At $99 and loading up the Big Launcher is going to be great for her. The phone is light and the UI is very responsive since I didn't load up much onto it. I have not yet put it onto the T-Mo network as that will be next month when we move from ATT to T-Mo and save ourselves some $$$. The wifi is connecting to my home router at 40Mbps down with no problem.

Cons: None that I can really think of... perhaps it ISN'T $50 cheaper and I can get it for $49 instead of $99? ;-)

Pros: Very good product for the money. If you don't play games and do not want to install many aps you will love it, because reception signal is better than two year old I-phone . Plus it has some extras too...

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsnice phone, incredible value

Pros: Pretty fast full featured phone.

I filled it up with all my apps, and still have 50 MBs free (not a lot, but still good enough).

This phone is amazing, with discounts its only $100 for a 4G LTE phone. Great screen quality, excellent battery life, haven't encountered any issues. Folks worry about the space, but can always move to SD for that if it happens.

Cons: Shame not the quadcore version like the optimus L90

No KitKat yet, still stuck on 4.1 (which is a pretty old android version).

They've released KK in Europe, so should get here soon for this phone.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Battery life on this thing is amazing, it went almost two weeks before reaching 11%. Of course, that is with minimal use, but it is still pretty impressive.

Cons: Not designed for gaming.
Locked for use only with T-Mobile.

Other Thoughts: If you get it on sale, and you are looking for a T-mobile phone upgrade, then this is a reasonable investment.
