I have had this phone for 2 years. This phone is the biggest piece of crap that you could ever purchase. LG customer support is absolute garbage. This phone is absolute garbage. It hangs, it stalls, and it barely even functions as a regular phone. I have been an LG customer for 15 years. I will never buy an LG phone again. If you're thinking about buying this phone, you're nuts. Do not buy this piece of garbage. I hate this phone, and I can't wait to get another phone. LG you suck.
I have had my lgk61 for 3 years. I am not sure about the typical lifespan of a phone including this one, but thinking that this is not old for a phone. My internet went off one day and never came back. Everything is hooked up and working but still no luck..no internet. My service provider is Virgin and through all the people I have spoken to ...from customer care to the tech dept. no one seems to know why or how to fix the problem. This has never happened to me before and must say..it is rather puzzling and extremely annoying. I am told that it is my phone and I need a new one...perhaps, but find it very hard to wrap my head around the fact that just after paying this one off, I need a new phone already. Never had a problem before and not sure what should be done
joeblow, 20 Jun 2022I've done that yet it's still performing extremely poorly after this dogshit update.... moreI honestly wouldn't know, I haven't had any issues myself after limiting background applications. I'd probably suggest investigating what's running in the background, try to find what's stealing your system resources and either uninstall the offending app or limit it's use in the background.
The chipset is pretty weak regardless. I don't have a lot installed on my k61 other than basic messaging and social media apps. Clearly there's some kind of issue with the way the android 11 update manages it's own resources because these issues were not present with the android 10 update.

To anyone complaining about this phones performance - enable developer options and limit background apps to 4 only. This made the android 11 update on this phone a lot more usable for me.
Of all the smartphones I've ever owned, this is by far the worst I've ever had. The fact that LG released this device is absolutely shameful. My LG G7 One, which is a few generations prior, that I had before this device, performs 10 times better. The chipset is crap and slow as heck. The device hangs. Input is laggy and sometimes unresponsive. The device even has trouble playing basic videos on youtube and other streaming services. It CRASHES when doing conference calls where one of the people shares their desktop in some conferencing apps.
I have just spent several hundreds of dollars on a new device out of frustration because of how bad this one is. And I don't think I even want to sell it to get rid of it because I don't want anyone else to suffer the frustration that I have felt from using this phone. It'll go right to the e-waste center where it will be torn apart for it's materials. Complete garbage.
I just updated my software two weeks ago my phone is no longer working properly. At times it freeze. I'm am so frustrated. Kindly advice
lgk61 is one of the best mobile i have owned , would not trade it for anything else
128 gb modell, worst phone I ever had... it moves really slowly, I have to restart it almost every day...
Is this phone getting any future updates?? Android 11 or 12?
No issues with this phone using for 4 months.
I find that the phone lags and does not make the best of wifi connections. i often have to go back to my lg3 stylo plus. otherwise battery life phone and text service well. lgk61 would not be my first choice of phones. but that is no longer an issue since lg is out of the cell phone business, oh well. rant complete.
Using for one year now. Absolutely no issues.
Anonymous, 09 Jul 2021Why ya complain? The only issue with it is the fingerprint scanner. It only works in the daytime.I had the same issue with the fingerprint scanner on this device only working during bright ambient lighting; if you calibrate your proximity sensor you can fix this issue, and the fingerprint scanner will function as intended, only ignoring accidental touches in your pocket.
Do not buy. Very slow for browsing with wifi even with great internet service. Must be broken looking how bad it is ... Touch screen is not precise.

Bought this for use in the US on ATT. It worked initially but now ATT is taking out their 3G bands. This apparently doesn't work with their 4G bands, so this is obsolete now. It's okay though they said they'd send a "comparable" phone, the ATT Radiant U304AA. Hardly seems comparable.
For the price its a good phone, but if you look into it deeper this phone is weak.
Also, dont trust in the mil-std certifying, i used it in rain and it just turned off for days.
