Here are the top 7 phones made by LG for Tracfone prepaid cell phone service. Tracfone is a prepaid wireless service provider that offers low cost cell phone plans, and also devices to use on those plans.

Each of the phones below offers certain features and benefits the others may not be able to offer, so it is important to analyze which phone may be right for you. Some of the phones are older, non-smartphones, but most are Android devices.

These are a wide variety of LG brand phones available with Tracfone, for those who like the LG brand and want to narrow their search to one brand. If you prefer other brands of cell phone, you may find our Cell Phone Reviews page useful.

LG is a very popular electronics company that makes everything from TV’s to refrigerators. They make some of the most cutting edge smartphones as well.

The LG cell phones offered through Tracfone are not always newest or most recently released. They tend to be older models that have proven themselves with good value, durability and low cost. In this list you will see a range of phones, from flip phones to smartphones, and each one has its uses. We are rating these phones based on functionality, features and which one we would want to own.

LG products are great, and the same is true for their mobile devices from Tracfone, so let’s get straight to the top 7 LG phones from Tracfone.

The Top 7 Best LG Brand Cell Phones Available at Tracfone

Starting with #7:

#7 – LG 440G/441G flip phone

LG 440G

The LG 440G is a flip phone loaded with more features than one would expect for this compact phone.

It comes with mobile web, courtesy of 3G connectivity speeds. It also has a 1.3 MP camera, hands free speaker, voice dialing and all the other features normally included with a Tracfone. The only downside to this impressive little phone is that it only comes with Double Minutes for Life. There are two slightly newer versions, the LG 441G which is almost the same, and the LG 238C which is for use with CDMA (Verizon) service.

Overall, this LG phone is small, convenient and has great value as a backup phone, or for other uses. You can read TracfoneReivewer’s full LG 440G Review to learn more, including how to find it for less than retail price. If you’re looking for a basic phone, the LG 440G might be it.

#6 – LG 840G

White LG 840G

Our #7 pick for best LG Tracfone is the 840G. It has semi-modern features, and provides great value and functionality to consumers. It comes with Triple Minutes for Life, which means that every minute you add is tripled!

But the LG 840G does not use Android OS, meaning you can’t access most popular apps. The phone does have WiFi, and it is possible to install java based apps.

The touchscreen on the LG 840G is better than the touchscreen on the older, LG 800G. It may take some getting used to, but functions well and helps make this phone look like it is part of the modern smartphones, even if it isn’t quite there yet.

Overall, the LG 840G is more stylish than older phones, but lacks when compared to the smartphones available. You can read our entire Review of the LG 840G to see all the features, and where to find it for less than retail price.

#5 – LG Lucky and LG Sunrise
The LG Lucky (L16C) and LG Sunrise (L15G) are basically the same device, but one for use with GSM networks, and the other for CDMA (note the ‘G’ and ‘C’ at the end of each phone’s name). 
These phones come with Android 4.4, a 3.8″ touchscreen for those who want a smaller sized device, and also an improved amount of processing power and RAM compared to older smartphones. 
Read our Review of the LG Lucky for more details on this phone, and where you can find it.
While the Sunrise and Lucky are adequate smartphone devices, we suggest a newer smartphone if you plan to run more than one or two apps.
#4 – LG Ultimate 2

LG Ultimate 2

The LG Ultimate 2 was like a breath of fresh air when it was released on Tracfone and saw a large number of users upgrading to it from older devices for good reason. It was one of the first smartphones from Tracfone with enough performance to satisfy the average user.

The Ultimate 2 comes with a 4.5″ touchscreen, Android 4.4, a dual core processor and 1 GB of RAM. One of the most important features this phone also includes is about 4GB of usable internal memory for applications and other storage. Many older smartphones from Tracfone have very limited amounts of internal storage.
While the Ultimate 2 isn’t quite as good as other mid level smartphones like the Moto G or LG G2, it is priced at a more reasonable level. In fact, you can find the LG Ultimate 2 on Amazon for just $50 last time we checked, and about the same on eBay.
Don’t forget to see our full Review of the LG Ultimate 2 for further details on this phone, and lots of comments from users.
While the Ultimate 2 has decent specs, most newer smartphones are improved in almost every way. 
#3 – LG Power and LG Sunset

LG Power

Next in our list, the Power (L22C) and Sunset (L33L) are very similar except for one important detail which we will cover further down.

Both phones feature a 4.5″ touchscreen, Android 5.0.1 and have 1 GB RAM with a quad core processor for better performance compared to older smartphones. They also have a 5MP camera, and about 4 GB usable internal memory.
Now, the difference between these devices is that the LG Power uses 3G CDMA cell service, while the LG Sunset is capable of 4G LTE on GSM networks. Obviously, if you have access to GSM networks in your area you will want the Sunset over the Power, but not all areas have coverage.
Take a look at our reviews for the LG Power and LG Sunset to learn more about each device, and see where you can find them for the best prices.
While a good phone, the Power/Sunset have been eclipsed in performance by several newer options.

#2 – LG Treasure, Premier, Rebel and Stylo 2
These four phones were all released about the same time, and share many of the same features and specs (which is why we are including them together. Where they differ the most is in screen size. The Rebel has the smallest screen at 4.5″, the Treasure has a 5″ screen, the Premier comes with a 5.3″ screen, and the Stylo 2 with a large, 5.7″ touchscreen.

Each one of these devices comes with 8 GB internal memory, a quad-core processor, 1 GB RAM and Android 5.1. See all the details about each of these devices in our reviews: LG Rebel Review, LG Treasur Review, LG Premier Review and LG Stylo 2.

While these four LG phones have fairly good specs and features, they did feel somewhat cheap, and some users found various quality issues they made them less appealing. With newer options available, we might recommend continuing on in our list.

#1 – LG X Style
This is the latest LG phone from Tracfone (at this time) and it brings some features and looks that set it above the rest of the devices in our list.

The X Style has a 5″ HD touchscreen, 8 GB Memory, 1.5 GB RAM and quad-core processor. It also comes with the newer, Android 6.0 operating system.

The look and feel of this phone is also improved over other LG smartphones from Tracfone. It looks like a higher end device despite its low price and plastic exterior.

Take a look at our full review of the LG X Style to learn more.

The LG X Style takes the top spot because of small spec improvements in several areas including the newer Android OS and increased RAM compared to older devices.

We hope Tracfone continues to release newer and better LG smartphones to use with their prepaid service and we will continue to update this list as appropriate.
