Excerpt: When I first slid into the shoes of the smart devices editor position for TweakTown, I had no industry contacts. This makes it quite hard to acquire samples, so I quickly blasted off e-mails to everyone I could trying to secure samples. One of the hands-down best companies to respond was LG. They responded within the hour, and the next hour I had organized an LG Optimus L5 smartphone sample for review.
Excerpt: LG has been serious in its quest to wow consumers with products coming from its stylishly sophisticated L-series of Android smartphones. And the Korean company has experienced quite a bit of success in this type of venture. With handsets like the LG Optimus L5 , it’s hardly a surprise. While it’s no superphone, the L5 does come with a few interesting bullet points in its spec sheet.
Summary: The LG L5 is part of LG's L-Style series of Android smartphones, offering a fashion conscious, stylish smartphone experience. It's placed firmly in the centre of the L-Style range with its 4” screen smaller than the 4.3” offering of the Optimus L7 , but larger than the Optimus L3 's 3.2” display. The L5 ships running Ice Cream Sandwich, the very latest and critically acclaimed edition of Google’s Android operating system.
Conclusion: LG Optimus L5 is a decent option if you are looking for a large screen device running on a relatively new version of Android. Other options you may consider are the Motorola Defy Plus with 1 GHz processor but runs on Android 2.3.
Conclusion: Overall, this is a competitive handset which showcases the legacy of LG?s smartphones with its advanced customizable user interface, intuitive features on top of its impressive in-hand performance. On the offered price, the handset faces tough competition from biggies of segment including Nokia Lumia 610, Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos (GT-S6802) and BlackBerry Curve 8530.
Conclusion: LG Optimus L5 Dual SIM имеет достаточно конкурентов, но обладает рядом неоспоримых преимуществ. Первое и одно из самых важных – довольно продолжительное время автономной работы, что для устройств на ОС Android, да еще и с поддержкой двух SIM-карт, очень хороший показатель. Смартфон отлично собран, имеет яркий дисплей (хотя и с небольшими углами обзора и разрешением) и вполне приличную производительность, достаточную для комфортной работы с устройством.
