LG Optimus L3 Review: In Depth
2 days ago
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
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.
Pros: Compact, lightweight body, Excellent battery life
Conclusion: 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.
Summary: 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.
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.
Excerpt: Running Android 1.6 Donut rather than the newer Eclair version, the LG Optimus Swift GT540 still offers plenty to entice smartphone buyers. It has a resistive touchscreen rather than capacitive, but at just £120 this handset will win plenty of fans. The brushed-metal-effect Optimus barely tips the scales at 118g, yet its finish feels far less prone to damage than some expensive handsets.
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.
