Hey guys! Eric from CheapAssReviews and this week we’re gonna be talking about the LG 328BG Tracfone from Walmart. So yeah. Let’s do that. [Popping Sound] [Donkey Sound] I recently wandered into a territory mostly
unknown. I had had a really busy week and things weren’t going my way. The house was a hot mess,
uh stuff was left out, the dishes … psft. .. the dishes. And then my Nexus 5x smartphone
it wouldn’t make it past the boot screen.. Things were awful. Haha, so would have just been a typical Friday, except the Mrs. and I were going out of town for a wedding. So I needed to get a phone so she could contact me should a dinosaur emerge from the earth and eat half the bridal party. Long shot but possible, or so she said. This is the story of how I acquired that phone. The LG 328BG. Like I said, the phone wouldn’t boot. So my phone carrier said they’d send me a brand new one free of charge, except it wouldn’t get here in time. It would get here eight hours after I’d
already left… Now that’s high drama! The wedding was in Chico California so I did what any red blooded American would do and I headed to the Chico Mall to save my problems. I first tried Verizon store because I did have the Moto E that I reviewed in a
previous video. They strung me along for five mins taking all my info and then casually mentioned it would be 35 dollars to activate, 40 for a month-long plan and then they also wanted my left shoe. No explanation why. That was too steep a bargain so I went to ATT, Metro PCS, and Sears and it was much of the same. Either the cost was too high, they wanted too much money, or the phone and data plan would be too expensive. That’s when I decided to head to Walmart and get a Tracfone. As you know the cheap runs deep here at CheapAssReviews and I felt at home with the florescent lighting 50 feet overhead and the scuffed linoleum under foot. I think that’s enough back story, let’s talk about the phone. Now it’s rare that you hold something in your hand that is lighter than it looks. Cotton candy, a bag of air, a feather, the LG 328BG. They all are very light in the hand. If you like the feeling that your phone could be blow away at any moment, this is the phone for you. Then again if you carry your phone in your purse, or your pocket, this could also be the phone for you. The phone has buttons. There’s 23 of them in all and you can press them and they do things. The ‘End’ button for example turns the
phone on. This one on the top left unlocks the phone if you then touch the top right it’s a real great user experience. Now the highlight of most modern cellphones the screen. The screen turns on. One feature that I loved about this phone is that it makes phone calls. Sure the person will sound like they’re at the end of a subway tunnel and yelling into a speaker phone, but that’s usually enough to get the jist of what’s going on. If you’re buying the LG to go on a trip down memory lane. This is the phone for you. It’s definitely reminiscent of phones fifteen years ago. I only used the phone for during the trip for three minutes. Total. So that’s 42/3=14 dollars a minute. Not quite as bad a long-distance call on the Concord, but pretty bad. But I was able to send Mrs. CheapAssReviews some very important texts such as “R u here lol” And “Lol buring up out here :)” Not my best work, but also not my worst work. Uh yeah 10/10 would buy again but only to stave out a fight. Thanks for watching my video on the LG 328BG Tracfone, if you want to call me, I’ll leave the number in the description cuz I’m not going to use the rest of these minutes. Probably won’t pick up, cuz you terrify me, but I’ll listen to the voicemails and if you want, you can like the video Subscribe, you can do whatever you want. I’ll see you next Thursday.
