Summary: I took the phone out of the box and could not get the battery to charge. LG USA could not help me. It does not recognize or support this model, because it says it's for the international market. It thought the charger might be bad and suggested going to Best Buy to buy a new one. First, however, it suggested searching on Google. There I found LG India supports this phone. The manual and downloads are there.
Very good double SIM phone but poor GPS performance.
18 October 2013
Summary: The Phone is excellent although you can not upgrade de android to android jelly bean. The GPS performance is not that good because not always works. Not sure if the problem is produced by gmaps that it seams are more interested in knowing where you are rather than letting you know how to get to where where you want to go. I strongly think the problems is gmaps so I will try installing multimaps and see what happens. Google / Gmaps, I know is free.. so ok.
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)
Excerpt: I would suggest those who are willing to have a big screen display at an affordable price can go for it. As far as the other feautures are concerned its overall good. I hope the below ratings can help you out. For more feedback you can reach me on 8019163279.
