A year or a couple of years ago I was in urgent need of a new phone so I went to the store and asked them for the cheapest one they had. They gave me the LG Leon. I saw them take this particular phone from the installation in the store, it did not come from a package but I did not care at the time because I needed a new phone and they promised it was new and did not give me a discount.
As soon as I opened the phone, even though it was completely empty; it did not work for sh*t. I could not type more than a few letters before the keyboard got hung up and started writing a long a** line of wrong letters and all kinds of crazy symbols. Each time I wanted to write a txt message I had to write a few letters then copy those letters into the note pads, save it there, clear the cache or in 90% of the cases restard the phone, write a couple more letters until it was fu*ked again then copy the text again and save it, restart again and so on and so forth, until after about 30 min I finally successfully had written a text msg.
But it was not only typing this phone could not achieve. It also could not call anyone. When I called people or they called me about 80% of the time there was no sound and as soon as they called 100% of the time the phone froze entirely so I was not able to close the call, try to put it on speaker or even turn off the phone. The phone overheated and I had to lie it down until the person on the other side hung up, and then I had to wait for a while before I could turn the phone off and restart it.
These two problems came from day one, and as I got used to the phone I found all kinds of weird tricks to help these problems as much as possible so in those areas my phones performance has actually improved over time. One thing I learned worked was holding in the cache button and pressing speaker the second someone called me sometimes worked, so then I have to just stand on top of heroin needles behind bushes if someone calls me about a private matter when Im in public, because its always on speaker.
But what soon came was the issue with storage. I dont know if it is only a problem with this phone but I have Clean Master on the phone, I clear the cache; I do all that and still literally the only things I have space enough for on my phone are like five photos and the instagram and whatsapp app. I dont have room for FB messenger, and I could only dream of being able to have room for word even if I cleaned the entire phone out.
This makes zero sense because clearly the full space of the phone is more than 200 MB????
I have an SD card in the phone but that is worth absolute nothing because guess what? The phone has never been able to be connected via USB for file transfer either. Except for the two first day I had it. Ever since that if I want to get a photo on my phone I have to upload it to dropbox on my computer, then go into dropbox on my phone, which is a challenge since I dont have the app there either, and download the photo onto my phone. The USB works for charging from the computer and I know how to do those settings to share data through the phone it just does not work.
Another thing is, I cannot move anything from internal storage to the SD card while I am on the phone, and since the phone wont open on a computer the SD card is absolutely useless.
I know it was a cheap phone, I know the camera is the worst in the world and it is not supposed to be advanced. But I know for a fact something is totally fu*ked with this phone in particular. Yes you will tell me to get a new one. But I appreciate it if you can just help me find some tips to be able to connect the phone to a computer and to do something about this imaginary lack of space this phone has.
