LG Optimus L5 II Review
20 May 2013
Excerpt: The LG Optimus L5 II is among the phones you'll run into if you're looking for an Android device that doesn't cost much. Its biggest asset is that it has a pretty IPS-LCD screen, but other than that, its just your typical entry-level smartphone. Specs include a single-core processor running at 1GHz, 512MB of RAM, 5MP camera and 4 gigs of storage – unimpressive characteristics, yet none of them surprise us given the phone's class.
Pros: Good display, Adequate performance
Cons: No front-facing camera, Mediocre main camera
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: The LG Optimus L5 II is an interesting little phone, plasticy, lightweight and covered in fingerprints yet still it is an appealing little phone. Introduced as the middle device in the 2nd generation of budget “Optimus L” phones, there is […]
Conclusion: LG has done a great job with the Optimus L5 II. It is short on memory and arguably could use a better processor, but overall there’s a lot to like here. For a relatively low-end handset the presence of Android 4.1, some clever skinning, and that user programmable shortcut button help make this smartphone into a winner.
Pros: Great quick launch button, Smart Android skinning, Android 4.1 on board, Voice control for camera
Summary: The LG Optimus L5 II is cheap, has a decent screen and pleasing battery life, making it a fair choice for recent smart phone converts. Unfortunately, it's let down by unimpressive performance, and its tiny storage will likely cause a few problems.
Pros: Affordable price, Bright screen, Decent battery life
Cons: Unimpressive performance, Paltry 2GB of usable storage, Plasticky design
Excerpt: LG Optimus L5 II erstatter den oprindelige Optimus L5 og byder blandt andet på opdateret software, Android 4.1 OS, enkelte nye funktioner og en klart forbedret skærm med 4 tommer IPS display og en opløsning på 480 x 800 pixels og en pixeltæthed på 233ppi. Batteriet har også fået et løft til 1.700 mAh, hvilket rækker til omkring 9 timers taletid eller omkring 550 timer på standby.
