A tad thick on the sides

Measuring 5.11 by 2.55 by 0.42 inches (129.79 by 64.77 by 10.67mm), the device is compact. However, its control buttons on the rear bulge out a bit, making it thicker around the back-center area.

Not the best budget phone

Although the LG Leon is inexpensive and has a few goodies like expandable storage and Wi-Fi calling, it doesn't perform as well as other budget devices like the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime, the Motorola Moto G and the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 (4.7-inch variant).
