LG Optimus L3 2 Review: In Depth
5 December 2013
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...
Pros: Compact, lightweight body, Excellent battery life
Excerpt: About a month ago, for personal reasons, I made up my mind to stop using my BlackBerry, and instead go all the way with Android (as an intending Android geek). I eventually did, believing that my LG Optimus E405 would be able to serve me pending the time I get a more powerful Android device.
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...
Pros: 1GB internal memory, 800Mhz processor, Great battery performance
Cons: Low-res screen, No camera flash, Love/hate design
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.
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.
Summary: This entry level handset is small in size, but can it achieve big things?
Pros: Customisation options, Good contacts manager, Decent battery life, Micro SD card slot, Good battery life is a major boon for any smartphone, so it's great to see that the LG Optimus L3 II manages it. Contact management is done well too, pulling information in from social networks and making it as...
Cons: Low res screen, Small built in storage, Poor camera, Sometimes lags, We really weren't fans of the screen on the LG Optimus L3 2. Sure, it's responsive, which is the first screen test that a low-end handset has to pass, but it failed at the second hurdle by being incredibly low resolution. If you...
Conclusion: The LG L3 is a budget phone with delusions of grandeur, its sleek good looks are backed up by a goodly range of Android features. Unfortunately it's let down by its unresponsive screen and slower than expected processor.
Pros: Neat, compact design, looks pricier than it is
Cons: Screen resolution poor and not very sensitive, sluggish processor
Excerpt: The LG Optimus L3 is the LG L-series Android smartphone of choice for those who are on a budget. As the very first model to be outed as part of LG’s stylishly sophisticated L-range, it kicks things off to a great start. It is small and lightweight with an ergonomic design.
