Great Phone from MetroPCS
belieber1996 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
The LG Motion was probably one of the most popular phones on Metro a few years back. The LG UI and Android 4.0 were a great fit for the motion. The snappy processor and the camera quality made the phone even more appealing. The only problems I experienced with the phone is the visibility of pixelation everywhere (unless you turned the brightness up), and the battery life can be improved.

This phone makes me happy!

I just bought it, and let me tell you, I was truly impressed that for 149.99 with no contract I was able to get a phone that packs more power that my old photon 4g, and is running ICS, shame on you motorola! It also reacts very fluidly, and as far as the 4g, I really only use it on wifi. Great phone, great job LG!

Great For Its Time
loccoandy has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
I purchased this phone when it first was released. It was an amazing experience, and also it came with 5GB of internal space, compared to other budget phones it was an impressive feature. It was a pretty thick phone for it's size and also the battery was "ok". The UI was pretty smooth and overall a not so bad choice as a budget phone.

I love my motion

I've had this phone for about for months . The only trouble i ever had with itwas when i first got it. I died it about twice. My hard case broke and my charging port became loose.i took it to metro pcs and they provided me with a replacement. I once called to complain about how fast my data got used up I told metro it could be right they have me another 250mb of data.. My phone works perfect on internet. It's quick with wifi and when i have 4g. I spend allot of time on Netflix and i never have trouble with it. I think the other purple in this website who hated theirs probably just got damaged goods. The first lg motion i had was bought on Ebay and that one worked great too.

Got this phone around new years for about $50. At first was smaller than i was used to but was easy to carry around so i didn't mind. Phone is built very good, i drop it atleast once a day on hard serfaces with no case and have yet to have the sceen crack. Batter is good for the size of the phone last me most of the day with medium use. Calls are always clear and good when i'm in good reception areas. The site has 2 of the specs wrong. Phones comes OC at 1.5mhz and front facing camera is a 2.0mp not a 0.3

LG MOTION 4G FROM METRO PCS
CRYSMONIQ has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
I BASICALLY HAVE THE SAME EXACT ISSUES AS "krktoday" BUT THIS WEEK IT'S GOTTEN EVEN MORE ERRATIC. I WOKE UP TO A WARNING MESSAGE SAYING MY MICRO SD CARD WAS REMOVED UNEXPECTEDLY AND MAY BE DAMAGED. IT WAS NEVER TAKEN OUT WHICH I KNEW. BASICALLY IT POPPED UP WITH THE SAME MESSAGE EVERY FEW HOURS FOR 2 DAYS STRAIGHT. EACH TIME IT WOULD RECTIFY THE SO-CALLED UNEXPECTED REMOVAL. NOW THERE IS NO INDICATION THAT MY SD CARD EVEN EXISTS. AND I CAN'T GET ANY OTHER PHONE TO READ IT. MY MOTOROLA SECURE DIGITAL SYNC READER WON'T READ IT EITHER. BASICALLY THE LG MOTION 4G HAS DESTROYED MY SD CARD. I HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM LIKE THIS WITH ANY OTHER PHONES. MY PHONE DEFINITELY DOESN'T RING. CALLS GO STRAIGHT TO VOICEMAIL. SOMETIMES THE BACK LIGHT DOESN'T TURN OFF UNLESS I RESTART THE PHONE. CALLS DROP EVERY FEW MINUTES. AT FIRST THE PHONE JUST KEPT DELETING FILES, MUSIC, VIDEOS & ETC FROM MY SD CARD AND NOW THERE HAS BEEN PERMANENT DAMAGE TO MY SD CARD AND NOW IT'S NO LONGER WORKING AT ALL. I'VE HAD THIS PHONE FOR 9 MONTHS. IT'S STARTED FLIPPING OUT AFTER 5 OR 6 MONTHS. I TOTALLY REGRET BUYING THIS PHONE. MY NEW ONE WILL BE HERE TUESDAY, BUT I JUST HOPE I DON'T HAVE TOO MANY ISSUES WITH IT. IT'S THE NOKIA LUMIA 521. METRO PCS/T-MOBILE. WISH ME LUCK LOL

metro pcs has terrible service and I have had nothing but problems with this phone
krktoday has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
I have had this phone for 3 months. The last two months I have not been able to send text messages with pictures nor can I send a text if it goes into the mms. It says sending forever and doesn't send or it says message expired. my phone only rings half the time when I get a call. The other half it goes straight to voicemail. It drops calls so often I got a house phone for important calls.It doesn't notify me of emails at all. Not even a number of emails on the screen. I have to push the email icon and then my emails begin loading. In the past two months I have taken the phone to be serviced 15 times. It has been reset plenty and that is pretty much all they know how to do. They fiddle with it hand it back tell me it is fixed every single time I go in and it never is. Not once have they offered to replace it. One worker told me this is normal for the LG Motion and he is probably the only one truthful with me. Even if they did replace it they would just give me a used phone that someone finally got them to take bad because of all the problems. been there done that with all their phones. Before this phone I had the LG esteem. I paid 464.00 for it and accessories and had so much trouble with it a year later they told me the phone is junk and I should just buy a new one which is how I ended up with the motion

I absolutely love this phone. Super fast, great camera, nice looking, comes with ICS, on a prepaid carrier with unlimited talk, text and 4g web for $55. The more I use this phone the more I fall in love with it. You really get a bang for your buck with this thing!

LG Motion 4G
Bugleje has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I bought this phone and thought it was fun while it lasted. After 3 hours of having the phone it started reading a Warning that called for the genuine battery. I had not touched the battery at all since the guys at MetroPCS put it in. I am taking it in to hopefully get a new one free of charge because I did enjoy the phone from the 3 hours I got to use it

Love this phone!!
jeremy0522 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
I have owned this phone for about more than a month now and I can say that I am very happy with what this phone has to offer. The camera is amazing, one of the best cameras I have used on a phone yet. The processor is SUPER fast, especially when you're using wifi & have a strong signal. So I can browse the internet with no problem. The screen is a bit small, but its about the same size as a iPhone so what does it matter? I would prefer this phone for any new customer from metroPCS.

I love it!

This is an awesome phone an you won't have much to complain about with this one.
( Unless you're super picky ) The video quality is awesome. The pictures are pretty decent. It's crazy fast. A very nice size and feel to it. The back has a nice rough feel so it's not slippery to the touch.

LG motion 4G AWESOME!!!
di3g0 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I feel that it is underpriced for the quality that you get.....the 1080p true hd video capture is amazing. It is very fast. the front faceing camera seems slighty washed out but is still pretty good. Downloads apps really fast. It is very light doesnt even feel like i'm holding anything. It is an amazing phone for it's price.
