Cons: no inner camera, not 64 gb micro sd card compitable

Excerpt: This is my second android phone.., first being the cute HTC Wildfire S. The LG Optimus L5.. is actually not bad at all! The phone is fast, responsive, and has a good quadrant benchmark score of 1470, good for a 800mhz single core ARM/Qualcomm processor. Screen-wise.. is a big 4 inch screen that dominates 95% of the front of the phone. The downside is that..
Pros: Big Screen, Fast snappy web browsing, Speedy User interface, Good benchmark for 800MHZ Single core phone, Playing games is a joy, Good battery life, NFC(Some countries), ICS Out of the box
Cons: Screen is not too great and not the worst., Weak viewing angles, Unable to store apps to SD unlike any Gingerbread phones., No NFC (For some countries)
