Review LG E460 Optimus L5 II Smartphone
4 June 2013
Summary: The mainstream "L". LG not only delivers high-end smartphones like the LG Optimus G or the Google nexus 4, the Korean company also produces smartphones for the medium price range. We have a closer look at the new 4-inch mainstream device, the Optimus L5 II.
Pros: Bright display with good viewing angle stability, Decent gaming performance, Good voice quality, NFC and HSUPA, Very light, Sturdy case, The bright display with an excellent viewing angle stability.
Cons: Weak contrast and black value, Camera performance, Weak processor, Limited memory, Limited storage, Quite boring design, A real highlight to differ from the competition.
Conclusion: There was a time when cheap smartphones were slow and clunky, which made them frustrating to use, but it looks like things are now changing for the better. Of course, the LG Optimus L5 II is far from a benchmark record holder, but it offers performance that is satisfactory and very adequate for its class. Furthermore, it has a screen that is better than what you'd see on similarly priced devices – one of its best advantages over the competition.
Pros: Good display, Adequate performance
Cons: No front-facing camera, Mediocre main camera
Summary: LG has made their way back in the phone segment of the consumer electronics world. Since they flashed their exciting new LG Optimus G Pro at CES 2013 at Vegas, the company has released a series of phones, one of them being the LG Optimus L5 II. For the price and the specifications we do say the phone could have given us the lot more but for the things it does have we can say it is one of the best in its specific area.
Conclusion: LG’s Optimus L5 II packs some run-of-the-mill specs but ups its value offering game thanks to some handy features that includes Cheese Shutter and a very decent (for this price point) display. It goes for a recommended retail price of R2 000, pitting the device against the likes of Nokia’s Lumia 520 (review) which delivers more spec bang (dual-core Snapdragon CPU) for less money (R1 900).
Pros: Great screen for the price range., Voice activated pictures., Some value added software features from LG., Affordable., Light design that is comfortable to hold and easily slips into any pocket.
Cons: Single-core CPU and half a GB RAM do not allow for blistering multitasking performance., No real wow factor in the design., Average camera performance., No front-facing snapper., VGA video recording quality only.
Excerpt: LG has come out with the latest Smartphone handset for budget conscious users, the LG Optimus L5II E450. This advanced phone brings innovation and creativity to the market. You can expect all good connectivity features and a camera, combined with data memory and storage.
Summary: In conclusion the LG Optimus L5 II (last time I’ll have to say that) is an ok little phone. As a backup phone to take on holiday, a phone to get a teenage kid, or just a phone for yourself if you didn’t want to spend that much money, it would be perfectly ok. LG’s tweaks have created something really quite usable and doing basic stuff it performs well.
Pros: Surprisingly fast around the core UI, Lightweight, One handed operation is possible, Decent sound quality with headphones on, Loud speaker
Cons: Plastic everywhere, Slow 5MP camera, Screen is fingerprint magnet, Slow during app installation, Speaker loud but tinny
