This is a very good price, but caveat emptor:
- 1GB RAM: This is puny and the phone will likely lag
- 4GB Internal Memory: Also small, you'll need to add an SD card for sure
- Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean): Obsolete, and may have unpatched security issues (such as heartbleed). Yes, you can use a custom rom with a newer version of Android, but then you lose wifi calling.

F6: 2,460 mAh, Talk time: Up to 8 hours

So L70 is actually much better.

My father is totaly loving the valet I got him on metro pcs and this would make a pretty sweet upgrade, but because of the 1gb storage issue I think I will pass. There are many apps today that don't take kindly to being moved to the sd card (My volt will actually lock up over time if I move any of the apps that app manager 3 tells me I shouldn't move) and after working with the 1gb limitation on my evo 3d for so long, I think it will just lead to problems in the long run.

Other then that it looks like a very solid phone. Great display. Oh and don't let some people fool you, 1gb RAM is perfectly fine. MOST PHONES TODAY STILL RUN 1gb-1.5gb ram!! You may see a lot more on the 600$ flagship phones, but android apps don't need it. MOST Mid range phones are still sticking between 1 and 2gb. You may notice background apps get cut to make more room but you won't have any issue running stuff in the foreground (apps do not run "slower" because you have low memory).

the l70 probably has the better battery life due to kitkat, but the video capture is loads better on the F6, l70 can only do WVGA, not even 720p! That is horrible.

Lots of my thoughts from the past couple weeks using this phone (some notes obsolete or opinions changed since initial testing). 90% rating thus far - limited by lack of RAM (1GB usually has 300MB-400MB free after boot), and storage space (easily filled up by 25~ basic apps after - must debloat, CM11, or move apps to SD card for sure! You'll need ~200MB internal free just to keep 2-3 open apps happy), so-so camera.
100% rating for any spare phone at this price range - nothing out there is better until you reach the $200 Moto G range.

+ IR TV/cable box remote control
+ free unlimited tethering on tmo
+ very nice, bright screen - easily matches LG G2 for brightness, beats most phones out there short of a moto g for brightness. IPS has decent viewing angles and most times indoors, everything looks great video/photo playback.
+ rootable, unlockable, CM11 able.
+ NFC for ISIS $50
+ LTE 4G (not slow LTE non-4G on TMobile) + 2100Mhz support for global roaming.
+ SD swaps ok live
+ headphone jack, with MX player, auto controls playback of music =) play/pause when plugged in or not.
+ audio quality is quite good - music over headphones, Skype calls, etc. Not a 'cheap' phone sounding reception or mic at all here. A touch 'tinny' however, and audio does distort at max at times.

- camera is so-so - chiclets, but not worthy of much.
- lack of ram/storage means light use or you must debloat, install CM11, or move apps to sd. This means you MUST unlock and root beforehand, so more work for you to get a nice setup for a moderate to power user. Even more work to get ISIS up and running, too.
Basic users who only surf, text, and call and maybe run just FB and a few apps will be fine.
- gets hot at times, like in a hot car, and can't bump brightness past 90% until it cools down.

For the <=$100 price range, NOTHING else out there matches this phone for the feature set + performance + nice screen. I've gone through stores and compared vs. Nokia 520/635/925, LG G2, G Pro, Blu's, Sony Xperias, Moto G/X, etc. Only thing in the same size/class range that's significantly nicer would be the Moto G (much louder, more RAM, etc), LG G2, and such at a much higher price range. Fact that you won't get significantly better until you're at the $200+ Moto G range says the F6 is pretty good! (Esp. if you consider phones that can be fully unlocked, rooted, and CM11'd with LTE 4G in the USA and 2100Mhz worldwide 3G+ roaming.)

How nice the screen is for the price can't be understated - fact that it's brighter than most AMOLED screens, and most LED screens at this price range and several times that, is great! Heck, even the LG G2 isn't brighter than this phone at $400+. 95% rating here, 5%- for not having as good of a polarizer at it should (eg. clearblack blacks).

-----

Got another f6 from BB today for $100. Unlocked (phone.market seller on eBay), rooted (Towelroot.com just download and run), and tethered (below) on Tmo just fine. It's one of those phones that grows on you and is a bargain given what you can do with it. Once you get familiar with all these steps you can easily do all three in about 30 minutes.

Debloated some on stock rom by uninstalling uneeded apps (1.1GB to start), but still, left with about 300MB free after installing a slew of dictionary apps for studying a language, line/Skype, mxplayer, and a few browsers. Tight, but okay even for this power user for now. Will have to link2sd later as needed, but think I'll be okay until I need a maps app and a few other things in there.

APN depends on the service provider of the SIM you have installed. Rarely is it needed to change APNs roaming unless they specify. If you use a foreign sim abroad, yes, APN changes, but usually, it's all automatic - just stick the sim in, reboot, and it'll set everything.

LG F6 had a thermal warning yesterday doing nothing but surfing the internet for hours, with Skype, Line and web browser!!!!! I had the brightness up at max, then turned it down to 50%, then turned it up again. Around 60%, it wouldn't go any further and said it's to protect the phone.

WTH!?!?!?!

Thus, this is a HUGE MINUS for anyone looking to buy a reliable phone for use in all conditions. I wasn't even using this outdoors! Indoors, AC'd cool, and simply surfing and tethering, charging. Simple things I can do with my Nokia 603 for days w/o an issue indoors and out.

Keep in mind that this is almost as bad as iPhones that overheated simply leaving them in the sunlight!

You CANNOT depend on the F6 as a primary communications tool under severe environments! Overheating, indoors with air conditioning simply accessing the net is absurd. I can easily take my Nokia 603, leave it in a hot car all day long, and it'll work all the time.

That said, it does get hotter in the hands after hours of use (warm to very warm) than the Nokia 603, which remains on the cool-warm side.

---

Black levels suck with videos with black/dark backgrounds - clearly gray vs. blacks on the Nokia 603. Also, weird, but tilt it three ways and the colors generally remain stable, tilt it the fourth way and it has that weird iPhone purple tint to the screen. Wish LG simply used Nokia's ClearBlack polarizer instead where there's no signficant color shift regardless of direction tilted.

Will drive you nuts at times if you're coming from better IPS displays (603, 808, 701,etc) or even AMOLEDs (galaxy 4/5, Notes). Nothing to notice if you've never used better.

But overall brightness is good enough to make this a non-issue in most cases. Lack of ClearBlack's better incident light absorbing means the LG screen is more like a mirror when lights shine off the glass vs. the Nokia 603 (flashlight testing clearly shows the difference.) Makes you wonder why a 2 year old phone can do better...

Multilang is the 'best' CJK asian + English keyboard out there - 10 key, qwerty and elusive 4 langauge handwritten input that doesn't care if you're writing a Chinese or Japanese character - it'll figure it out. Enough features that as long as you don't need to swipe or talk, it's a solid keyboard.

For typing only, no swipe, ATOK JE keyboard is the best when you're typing Japanese or English because it's word prediction is nice, based on sentences, so you can write an entire sentence simply picking words from the popup list. Also, Japanese IME is superior to the rest, even OpenWnn.

For swiping, Swype (English, Japanese, etc) has most of the features - handwriting input, swiped input of English, Japanese, etc., but the dictionary isn't as good as let's say ATOK for Japanese typed input or Multilang for handwritten input. It's good enough that you can use it for multiple languages, but I'm running four keyboards right now because none of them are 'ideal'.

Trying to find a working copy of Winamp for this - ones I've found seem to crash and close the moment I load it.

WiFi tethering using the prior steps posted works fine for multiple laptops - no WiFi security possible using this method, so will try OpenGarden next over bluetooth. Otherwise, things like Win8.1 updating and all works fine.

---

Overall system speed? Not faster than my Nokia 603 switching apps, file management, etc. Android has bloated so much that it's wasting clock cycles. Sure, surfing is faster and snappier, but that's a matter of 4G LTE + dual core + faster frequency + newer browser vs. the 603. Otherwise, responsive, but not a rocket like the very fastest $$$$ phones out there. Useable in most cases.

---

Looking into ISIS - any warning tips? Looks like it's as simple as they say signup and getting that advanced SIM card is to be.

But, why does every NFC/bluetooth transfer have to be different??
Enabled NFC on both Nokia 603 and F6, can't transfer anything over NFC just by touching the backs (Eg. photos,contacts).
Even Bluetoothing files doesn't work - photos, contacts.
sigh....
Had to VCF contacts to a microsd card, but even then, a handful didn't import into Android. Had to manually enter new contacts.

----

Back and shape make for a slick hold at times. No idea why there's no handstrap hole ala 603 and Xperias.

yum, good thread on getting isis to work with this F6.

LG F6 call quality over Skype sounds clear, but a bit 'tinny' - not a full, rounded sound to the other party. But audibility both ways is very good, and high frequencies are sent across to help listeners understand what is being said.

---

Went from home to sitting in a hot car, started car, drove a few miles with AC cooling down the car. Dumb phone said temperature had risen, thus couldn't increase the brightness past 87%!
Sigh...

---

Skype holding onto calls over TMobile 4G in Long Beach, CA, even sitting still and not moving, is so-so. Drops the connection every dozen or two dozen so minutes. Definitely not as stable at holding onto the tower as my Nokia 603, which doesn't drop like this.

Also, with about 200MB storage space free, simply running Skype call in the background and browsing websites results at times in Skype being closed out and/or crashing. Sigh... Doesn't do this at all on my Nokia 603 with only 18MB free!

---

Google Maps is truly horrible vs. Nokia Maps. Displays road fonts like microprint - what's the point on a big screen without big fonts when driving? Can't zoom easily with one hand. Definitely not designed for the driver. Loses a lot of basic features like current Speed, Time and Miles to Destination, etc. in big fonts. Tiny fonts make you wonder how a driver is going to read any of this junk with the f6 mounted to the dash??

---

Maximum voice loudness isn't loud enough for some environments like a busy supermarket/eatery combo. No matter how I place the earpiece, sometimes, it's just not loud enough. This is where another, louder phone will do you good like Moto G.

---

Camera is stupid. Hold it one handed with your right to touch the on-screen shutter, and all photos are stored upside down when viewed on a PC later. Did the Koreans/Google think all humans are left-handed and would take one-handed photos with the left hand?

---

Multitasking isnt very conducive to Skype calls. Browsing a new webpage can interrupt the audio of Skype. So can surfing the web other a tethered tablet during a Skype call. Poor multitasking handling by the OS of data traffic bandwidth (which is a lot more on the f6 - about 5MB/sec+ vs. 1MB/sec or less on the 603).

Not at all like the Nokia 603 where I can mutitaksk a lot more stable.

---

Built-in Messaging client is dumb.
Start a MMS thread, but can't switch the next reply back to SMS. Have to start a new thread instead. Sigh....

---

Nokia 603 email client can set update interval to every 5 minutes for IMAP/POP accounts that are not MS Exchange/IMAP pushed immediately to the phone. F6 is like once every 15 minutes...sigh....

---

Inability to lock onto towers and overheating are two big issues making me think of dumping this phone on Craigslist soon. Just not reliable enough to replace my 603 based on a few days of testing thus far.

Burn rate through the battery is pretty quick. On at 10am today at 100% battery, 100% screen brightness, GPS'd for about 20minutes to destination, Skype and Line in background, Facebook open in browser.

Checked voice mail, checked FB a few times, installed a few GPS apps to test on the way to 2nd destination (about 25 minutes), played a few dozen minutes of videos off sd card, and by the time I was back home around 7pm, it was down to 15%.

Definitely not an 'all day long' phone by any means, and a charge up halfway through 24 hours is likely needed most days.

Wasn't using the phone hard - merely light to moderate. Even GPS total time was <1 hour. And didn't do anything heavy over the net.

1. battery w moderate use is 6-8 hours.
2. Unlock, Towelroot. Then, RootCloak along with Xposed framework. Then, AndroidTunerhttp://www.3c71.com/android/.
3. This will get you to the point where you can install isis, block apps from internet, and debloat! With AndroidTuner.you Do Not need Titanium Backup to remove pre installed system apps like Google Music, etc.

You can debloat simply flashing this rom http://androidforums.com/metropcs...n-rom.html

or running this script http://androidforums.com/metropcs...mover.html

But these may remove apps you want. Android Tuner can do this manually, but may Not get you as much free space as easily.

4. wifi tether free using http://androidforums.com/metropcs...agent.html

So, not bad for a $100 phone. Not the best, some things like running Skype on a bad can can make it crash, Workable, but if you don't want to deal with all this, lg l90 would be better, more storage space.

1. At the $100 price level, F6 pretty much beats most other devices except the $100 LG L90 sold by T-Mobile. It's the same thing, but 4.7" screen, larger memory, and NO LTE. It's less annoying to own something that you don't have to move apps to external SD card when you run out of space quickly, but lack of LTE means slow download speeds.
Given that it's simple enough to Root, Unlock, and Link2SD, no real reason to buy anything else unless you don't want to play with the phone.

2. Better screen (brightness, contrast) than anything else out there at this price range - beats Nokia 521/635/925, most Blu's, etc. Just haven't found anything brighter and better. Even beats the older AT&T LG G Pro's screen for brightness! LG G2 is similar. Only the Moto G/X that I've seen in person exceeds the F6 for this. Honestly, one of the better cellphone screens out there.

3. Speed is fine for dual core for non-gaming. Built-in browser is decently snappy across most sites and really no issues running FB, Yahoo, etc. Just works w/o unusual delay.

4. RAM is limited - thus, scrap heavy mutitasking. Apps will suspend due to 1GB of RAM that's 1/2 full by the time you start this phone up. Another reason to consider something like a 3GB Sony when you need to multitask all the time.
Here, it's pretty much 2-3 apps - line, web browser, and something else. Any more and it'll push the suspended app to sleep.

Way around this is to make sure you run the app cleaner (linked in my prior post) to get debloat stock, or install that custom ROM that's already debloated. After that, quite snappy and can run a decent number of apps at the same time.

5. Camera won't surprise you - it's good for the 'shrunk-down-to-screen resolution dimensions for viewing' purposes, but won't even come near a Nokia 925 for photos. That said, does a decent job for the very basics, but not the first phone to look at if you're a photo enthusiast. Macro works fair enough to word translation apps word fine with this.

See attached photos and https://db.tt/WIcGF80L for the indoor & outdoor video (press pause during the video to see what the frame quality is like).

6. Cannot underestimate the ability to WIFI TETHER FOR FREE!! (root and run the apps noted in my prior post) Easily sucking up 30+GB here on Tmo w/o an issue. All WP8 phones can't be bypassed; don't believe iPhones in stock form can be either. Really nice being able to tether laptops, friend's iPhones, etc. to the F6.

rated:
Oh, and no security on the wifi tethering using the steps above >.< No WEP/WPA to protect your transmissions from the tethered devices.

About 4 hours to burn through 70% battery life at 70% screen brightness about 2 hours, 2 at 100%, no tethering, no wifi, about 1 1/2 hours of GPS mapping, then turned off, rest was all surfing and downloading Play store apps frequently each hour.

6-8 hour battery life is what you should expect as the max. You can easily burn through faster at 100% brightness. Definitely a moderate use, moderate brightness phone if you want to go a full 8 hour workday.

Amazon Price matched this for me, through a live chat with customer service.  They checked the MetroPCS site and confirmed.  This was good for me as I have Prime, and MetroPCS site kept saying I was not in a service areas (even tried multiple friend's addresses across 6 states where MetrroPCS is absolutely available).

1. Compared the F6 to iPhone 5s, LG L90/G2/G3, Nokia 925, Sony Z, Galaxy S4/S5 today. All turned to max brightness, auto off. iPhone was about the same brightness, all others were dimmer.

2. Neurotically high resolution of G3 and 1920x competitors moot at 8-10 inches from your face. Can't perceive the difference. Close up, only if you're looking at 1-3 pt microprint, esp. Chinese characters. Essentially meaningless for most users at regular handheld distances.

3. rooting and running free tether works fine on Tmobile. Should on Metro, too - see tether instruction link. I recall seeing possibly Metro user saying so.

I got in on the BB deal a month or so ago for $80, sweet phone for the money especially if you choose to address the limited internal memory by modding to use an external SD card as others have mentioned. I added a 64GB MicroSD card, unlocked, rooted, modded and now have a great phone with tons of memory running on T-Mobile with LTE. Mobile hotspot and WiFi calling are a couple of nice extras I use daily. For $69 I'm tempted to buy another.  In the spirit of giving back here are the guides I used to make the 64GB MicroSD card 'Internal Memory':

2. Mod to make an external SD card (up tp 64GB) available as internal storage - steps 1-13 - http://androidforums.com/tmobile-optimus-f6-all-things-root/7919... 

3. Install and use Link2SD - http://www.noypigeeks.com/android/tutorial-a-guide-to-link2sd/

  Faced the same issue - Minnesota has excellent coverage according to Metro PCS but MN is not listed in the shipping address section. Talked with Metro PCS CSR and he tried to help but his supervisor kept on saying they did not "have a market" in MN and that's why it was not listed. Tried to price match with Amazon but CSR quoted company line (Except with TV and cell phone *with service* we don't price match). Oh well!

SystemCleanup is good app for finding leftover pieces of uninstalled apps (cache, etc) and getting rid of them.

Vibration Notifier or Repeating Notifier is a must! Otherwise, you'll be missing calls, texts, etc. because the default OS doesn't have repeating reminders for missed calls, etc.

Web Page Reader app + SVOX voices works great reading foreign langauge webpages to you.

inViu GPS Details is a solid, light program for giving you info on all the satellites the F6 is picking up on GPS.

Elecom QR code reader is small, light, slow, but does the job fine on QR codes w/o much ads/fuss/etc.

inSSIDer is a must if you're wondering what WiFi hotspots are in your area.

Notification CLIP is a MUST if you hate pushing the home screen. There are other apps out there that do similar, such as sliding in menus from the sides, but this is light and pops everything into the notification pulldown window (other programs pulling in from the sides interfere with regular program operations at times that also have slide from side functionality).

X-Plore is a great file manager. My favorite! Dual windows.

Bitdefender is a nice, light AV.

DayWeekBar is a must for those that need to know the day/date in the top bar at all times.
Day Widget is a nice one for the desktop.

K9 email is a must have replacement - open source, no ads, and push IMAP for instant email notifications vs 15 minute delay using the built-in email.

Xposed Framework + RootCLoak + Android Tuner Free are the best for digging deep into your OS. Must have anyways for free WiFi tethering along with WiFitether.
Stick in BusyBox too once you root.

WInamp 1.4.10 is the only version that'll work, newer ones won't on this OS.

Whether you use the built-in move2SD or link2SD, you can push programs to the SD card. That said, debloat first! This alone helps so much, you may not even need to push programs to the SD card like me. Got 70+ apps installed on internal w/o a problem, so no need to use link2sd yet (which I've tested and works fine, too).

DEBLOAT script here for the lazy - you don't need to install a new ROM, run this and poof! all the bloat gone!
