Conclusion: LG has cut quite a bit of corners as far as components are concerned with the L-style series, and the Optimus L5 is no exception to that rule. With a fairly slow single-core processor and a below average screen pixel density, it certainly won't appeal to the geeky crowd, but the design they are wrapped in makes it pretty comfortable to hold and nice to look at.
Pros: Inexpensive, Good battery life, Solid, comfortable to hold design
Cons: Low screen pixel density, Relatively slow processor, Hollow voice quality in the ear piece, No front-facing camera, Weak vertical viewing angles
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.
Conclusion: LG Optimus L5 è nel complesso un buon telefono, che merita sicuramente i 70€ in più chiesti rispetto al piccolo L3 (che non ci aveva particolarmente convinto), ma che soffre della concorrenza delle altre aziende ed è quindi messo in difficoltà per i suoi difetti (come lo schermo o il processore).
