Offers decent value for money

from Recombu

The LG K8 is a solid all-round affordable mobile that gives the excellent Vodafone Smart Prime 7 a run for its money. If you're after a no-frills everyday handset or a dependable second mobile for taking to festivals and the rest, we'd happily recommend it.

Inexpensive, latest Android software, decent camera

from PC Magazine

The LG Phoenix 2 offers reasonable performance, a 720p display, the latest software, and a decent camera for just $100. It isn't as powerful as the equally affordable Zmax 2, but it has a better camera.

It looks good on the outside, but inside is useless as far as functionality. Camera selfies gesture does not work. Cannot see screen outdoors. Expensive paperweight.
