Recombu

  • Conclusion: There are a few unavoidable shortcomings with LG Optimus L3 2, especially when you weigh up the experience it provides against other Android devices in the same class. The screen and the design are the most obvious weaknesses, while incompatibilities within the user experience are an unwelcome surprise.

  • Conclusion: The LG Optimus L3 is an easy to use smartphone that will suit many needs. It has a great battery life, can download apps and delivers a decent web browsing experience, but that doesn’t stop it being distinctly average in every other area.
  • Pros: Android 2.3 might be an old interface compared tot he latest Android 4.0 and Android Jelly Bean operating systems, but it still does a great job. It has multiple homescreens you can use to place your favourite apps and social network shortcuts to make the Optimus L3 your own. Everything you need is constantly at your fingertips. The Optimus L3 has only 1GB of internal storage, but with a microSD card slot allowing for up to 32GB, the Optimus L3 potentially has plenty ...
  • Cons: The Optimus L3’s screen isn’t the best by a long shot. That is to be expected from a low budget device. Its 240 x 320 pixel resolution is rather average, and doesn’t fair too well in bright conditions either. The amount of glare makes it difficult to read in sunlight without tilting the device at awkward angles. The camera too, is a basic affair, with no flash and poor picture quality. And don’t think about zooming - it renders most photos useless. Video quality doesn...

LG Optimus L3 Review: In Depth

  • Conclusion: The LG Optimus LG is worth considering if you’re looking for a first smartphone. Looking online it’s as low as £69.99 on PAYG, certainly don’t pay any more than that. £69.99 is the same price as the Huawei Ascend Y 100 , but the L3 offers a bigger screen, more storage and better camera, although the screen is poor.
  • Pros: 1GB internal memory, 800Mhz processor, Great battery performance
  • Cons: Low-res screen, No camera flash, Love/hate design

Mister Mo reviews the LG Optimus L3 E400

  • Conclusion: Pic below: Optimus L3 E400 beside Samsung Galaxy Pocket. The LG Optimus L3 E400 is a winner. I haven’t gushed over a low-cost smartphone like this in a while. It simply ticks all the boxes nicely. As already said in my earlier low-cost Android comparison , the E400 is the budget Android smartphone to beat. I quote: In actual use, this Optimus does not detract from what’s on paper. And at a comfortable price of N19,500, the E400 is serious value for money.

LG Optimus L3 Review

YugaTech
21 April 2012
  • Summary: The LG Optimus L3 is a very decent phone with a pretty sleek design that almost looks professional. It’s small, lightweight and easy to hold. It’s very responsive, smooth, and quick. The L3 doesn't come with a microSD card so better get one with a decent amount of memory if you want to go heavy on photos and music. Battery life is good as well.

LG Optimus Swift user review

Gadgetmania
28 February 2011
  • Conclusion: The LG’s battery was good for more than two days of heavy-duty use, including plenty of chat and web surfing. It lasted around four to five days of more typical use. Overall, we didn’t have to recharge the Swift anywhere near as frequently as an iPhone 3G. This is a truly likable smartphone that we’d happily recommend to friends. You’ll be hard pushed to find a neater, sleeker Android phone for the price -and the long battery life is a bonus.

LG Optimus L3 2

25 February 2013
  • Excerpt: LG might mostly be known for the popular Nexus 4 and other premium smartphones but that only accounts for one end of its range. The LG Optimus L3 2 takes a position right at the other end as a truly entry level handset.

LG Optimus L3

  • Conclusion: Although it is hard to overlook the loveable price tag, there are handsets out there will sub £100 stickers attached that overshadow the LG Optimus L3. A stubby, plastic device that is certainly not a grower, the Android 2.3 device is to be quickly overshadowed by a number of rivals with its lack of future proofing to see it become a distant memory in a few short months. That is unless yoo plump for the device and find yourself stuck with it for the next 18 months.
