Very stylish and refined look. Easily stands out in the cacophony of small-medium range budget phones overcrowding the Indian market right now. Slim bezels and smudge free back cover.
Dual SIM capability and removable battery. Bright and sharp screen at 312 dpi.
You may either love the back buttons or hate them - this is a personal decision. However, they are made excellently and look wonderful on this phone. They work well too, giving enough tactile feedback. The volume buttons have a different texture compared to the power button. Both can be assigned shortcuts to use while the phone screen is locked.
The size is just right for those who feel overwhelmed using a 5 inch phone. Very easy to carry and feather light in the hand.
Comes preloaded with Android Lollipop along with all LG specific features such as Knock Code to unlock the phone and Gesture Shot for selfie lovers.
However, disadvantages to consider are that it lacks an ambient light sensor and the camera (especially the front shooter) is average in artificial light.
By the way, it does have an inbuilt FM RADIO.
If you are planning to buy one, go for the Black and Gold version - it is simply stunning.

I am an authentic user of this phone.....Well while using this phone I was quiet satisfied. Its a bit average phone primary shooter is quiet good but lacks extra features and shooting mode but primary camera is disappointing. Camera takes average pics in artificial light . Design is good... rear keys might appear irritating but with use you will be used to it. Personalisation features are too many which seems to be good and is actually interesting too. Android latest version Loilipop is there too.
Overall this phone suits the average needs you should wait a bit if you are considering a phone between 10k-15k You can even wait for Htc desire 626
front camera 2-5 mega requrired

this phone is extremely slow. Your operating system is not adapted to the phone hardware to run well should have android 4.2 or lower . The camera is of very poor quality , it takes 20 seconds to start the camera , and never takes the pictures in focus. I come from phone as s3 and s5, much higher , at this time I am using this until you can buy the s7 . Do not buy it if you do not want to rough it

Have purchased this ten days back and much satisfied with the same. What I found as pros and cons, given below.
1. Ofcourse, value for money.. since its 4GLTE and with decent built quality and costs only 7K... You will not find any other alternatives (branded) for this in the market.
2. Good battery life (even though its 2100 mAh only) and lasts up to one day and more
3. HD quality with 720 x 1280 pixels (~312 ppi pixel density) with scratch resistant glass.
4.Packed up with Android OS, v5.0.1 (Lollipop), and upgradable to v6.0.1 (Marshmallow)
5. Snapdragon 410 processor with quad core .. 1.3 Ghz clocked.
6. Easy for one hand operation, since its 4.7 inches only.
1. RAM is only 1 GB and may slow down a little bit while using (if you are a fast operator). LG could have been packed at least 1.5 GB RAM for this device.
2. Front CAM is not much good (1 MP only) and not much recommended for selfie persons
3. Looks heavy, since it have curved design.. (even though its only125 grms approx)
4. Body to screen ration (~69.1%) could have improved, for a bigger screen
But anyhow, if you are looking for a good handset with a lesser budget, this will be your right choice, since it gives a better value for money than any other hand set does.
So, go for it, if you can compromise on above cons listed..

It's a great phone,light weight,better touch,looks elite,does not hang,does not heat,though this configuration available for cheaper price if you go for lenovo,redmi and other chinese companies but far better then them.But flipkart took too much time to deliver.
looks good and performs awesome for the price.

As promised by flipkart, i received the phone within 24 hrs.
now about the phone. it is the best looking phone in this price bracket. it is quite a performer with no signs of lagging and the UI is super smooth until u throw a large number of apps at it simultaneously.
