Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone Hi, I have had the LG Fortune for a little over a week. So far it has been the best cell I have owned. It has so many features that are not overwhelming and the battery is long lasting. The phone itself is light and easy to text etc... I would definitely recommend this phone to family and friends. Happy Holidays....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect For Me I went from a Samsung S5 that was glitching all the time to the LG fortune, & can honestly say that I'm more happy with this phone, which cost me less than $10 with a number transfer. It does everything I could want or need it to do. This is my 3rd LG phone, & I've been more than satisfied with them all. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from learning it and liking it I've had my phone for a month now. at first, i didn't like the lock /on/off button in the back. all my previous phones had the button on the right side. I've now gotten used to it. The front (selfie) camera isn't as good as I was lead to believe. Overall I like the phone. Great for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont. I bought this phone (2) a little under a month ago and it's bad... I expected Alot better from LG. The battery is terrible & I have small hands but they shrink the unlock screen to where I can barely unlock it. It freezes up bad. I would giver all 0 if I could. The memory isn't any better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Kid = Happy Mom I bought this phone for my teenage son. He plays tabletop rpgs. He is happy with the phone and he can use the apps he wants on it for his gm stuff. So happy kid makes a happy mom. Worth what you pay for it. And he is clumsy with his stuff and it is survived a couple weeks now. That's a plus.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh... Needed a cheap phone and this one fit the bill. First the positive.... Works fine for talk and text. Battery life seems to be pretty good. Tap on feature kind of cool and convenient. Not sure about the on button on the back...takes time to get used to. Is nice to be able to put a micro sd card for extra storage in. Now the negative.... Takes forever to load an app and then app lags and is choppy. Thought I turned off all the automatic notices and such, but they keep coming. Ringtones not defined enough for me to recognize that my phone is ringing. Sound for alarm isn't loud or shrill enough to be of much use. Camera leaves much to be desired. I truly believe the phone is impacting the quality of cell service I receive. Tried to text while inside a concrete building and wouldn't of through until I got outside. Streaming music is just about impossible...3 seconds of audio, 6 - 10 seconds of silence. Haven't tried video yet. So, if all you really do is talk/text this phone will work for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good Bought this a few days ago and its a decent budget phone. Runs all the apps I use easily and even a few knots old phone refused to. The Swype isn't very accurate yet, but I'm sure it'll get better the more I use it. If not there are a plethora of other keyboards available in the play store.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so good It's an ok phone, but my critic goes towards the fact that its not a greatl to play videos, it buffers a lot. When I use my laptop or tablet I have no issues, therefore I know its not my internet or anything, is just that the phone doesn't have enough juice to do everything I like to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this phone I bought this phone almost a month ago and have had no issues with it. It is one of the best phones ive had. I love how easy it is to use. And the slimness is really nice because i dont like feeling weighed down with bulky phones. I really all in all dont have anything to complain about.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Need a better phone I called to complain about this phone cause some app are not compatible with this cheap phone i asked if i bought a more expensive phone could i have it at the price of a new customer i was told no i had to pay full price cause i wasn't consider a new customer even tho this was on the same day i got the phones i was willing to pay for the phone i just wanted to pay new customer price so i would tell other customers to think about what phone u get cause with cricket once u buy ur stuck with it cheap doesn't mean ur getting a good deal also recently I've been dropping calls we use to have straight talk wireless and nv dropped calls which is also att tower so if I'm guess its going to come down to the cheap phone again i would like a bew phone but I don't see cricket doing it for me and I'm not talking about a new phone with the same name I'm talking about a whole different new phone not so cheap Cricket's model is they put a smile on your face haven't seen one yet on my face not about this situation

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE PHONE I've been having issues with this phone since day 2 of my purchase. I was told this was a good phone by store associates and boy were they mistaken. Phone goes extremely hot and shuts off. Certain apps shut off by themselves while using. Overall quality is just poor do not purchase it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant Upgrade This is the best phone I have ever had. No more pocket calls! I can keep the phone in my pocket when I'm not using it and not wind up with 40 photos of darkness or unwanted videos. They put the on/off button on the back of the phone - someone should have thought of this sooner...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from okay for basic phone Loved the dbl tap to open. Has some unique features, but froze up a lot on facebook. Battery slow to charge and quickly used up. Couldn't get it to connect to my chevy Bluetooth for free hand calls. Those were the only 3 things I didnt like. Phone worked well otherwise.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from super laggy i got this a month ago for free for bringing my number over. really good battery life, thats about the only thing i can say about it. i probably should've got the free samsung phone instead. the cameras suck, it freezes all the time. but for a free phone it isnt that bad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very unhappy I am very unhappy with Cricket Wireless and with this new phone. I am getting a message on some of my apps that I can't remove it. I can't get help from Cricket or from LG. I left Straight Talk where I was very happy. I am very sorry that I left them and came to Cricket

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for basics. I have had this phone for a month and it is completely satisfactory for what I need. I am not a "gamer" or on the internet constantly. The telephone function works well and the text function is very good. If you need a good, basic smartphone this is a good choice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from LG Fortune I bought this phone thinking it would work better but I am very disappointed in this LG product...it doesn't hold a battery charge very well and keeps overheating n getting very hot. I wish I could have afforded a better LG...oh well...ve to make the best of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone!! O bought this phone about a month ago and have been very pleased with it. It has great cameras, both forward facing and rear, for every day pictures. I was just buying a phone to get me by until i could get a better one, but i fell in love with this phone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like LG. I've own a couple different phones and I enjoyed them all but with this one the M153 the batter drains faster that any other I owned and gets hot when I use it and charging I don't want it to get damaged [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hate it! I've had this phone about a month. Before this, I had a ZTE GRAND X3....LOVED IT. This LG FORTUNE doesn't do predictive text worth anything, it doesn't let you have the word options (like touch 1st/middle/last word choice). I hate it all the way around.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Screen cracked w/o dropping 3days into owning The phone the screen cracked. I haven't known my finger strength to be extraordinary! Had a HTC Desire and dropped a few times w no issues. LG has 16 GB installed which is nice and has 5 MP front & back phone w good camera feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great phone Have only had the phone for a month and love it. I have had no problems running my apps or playing my games. Camera takes nice pictures as well. Volume is ok, wish it was a bit louder but overall the phone is more than I expected for the price paid.
