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 surprise.
Pros: Compact, lightweight body, Excellent battery life
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
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. And best of all, it won’t cost you an arm and a leg to acquire. As you may already know, the Android smartphone market is filled with entry-level handsets that cost less than a hundred bucks a piece.
Excerpt: The LG Optimus L3 is the brand’s attempt to hit the budget Android market in style and, at the first hurdle, it manages to beat both the Samsung Galaxy Ace and Huawei Ascend G300 from the very first glance. The design is slick, palm-sized and even manages to take a couple of design flourishes from the LG Prada 3.0 .
Pros: Great design, Palm size simplicity, Easy user interface
Excerpt: It's not a huge surprise that low-cost mobile phones are popular. There are a lot of people in need of smartphones, but not all of them have the money to spend on them. Most operators have a phone that costs about £100 or so, on pay-as-you-go, which is a decent price for a phone that can do as much as many phones that cost four or five times that much.
Pros: Cheapish, well-built
Cons: Horrible screen, not as cheap as some better phones
