Summary: The L-Series was first introduced at Mobile World Congress last year where LG showed off the Optimus L3, L5 and L7. Fast forward to August last year when LG announced that the L9 would be arriving to join the already successful L-Series phone range that had been launched earlier that month.
Summary: El nuevo modelo LG Optimus L9 puede ser un gran competidor del sector de gama media o intentar luchar, con algunas dificultades, en el segmento de teléfonos de gama alta . Todo dependerá del precio que decida poner LG para intentar cubrir los gastos de producción del móvil . Tras un análisis de sus características, el L9 no parece un mal teléfono, para nada, pero tiene algunas limitaciones en caso de querer luchar en un segmento dominado claramente por el Samsung Galaxy...
Summary: I still find the Final Thoughts of the L-series of smartphones from LG hard - they're budget phones, but I can't find myself recommending them. The Nexus 4, also made by LG, is less than $350 - and offers twice the specs, and twice the phone.
Conclusion: So, it turns out there's quite a lot to like about the LG Optimus L9. Its key selling point is the big screen, which is rather hard to come by in this price range. Retina levels of pixel density were out of the question - should we say, budget - but qHD doesn't look too bad. The reasonably powerful hardware, nice looks, and excellent custom user interface are some more good reasons to choose the L9 if you are into big-screened smartphones.
Pros: Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support, Dual-band 3G with HSPA, 4.7" 16M-color qHD IPS LCD (540 x 960 pixels) capacitive touchscreen, Android OS v4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, LG Optimus UI 3.0, TI OMAP 4430 chipset, dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 CPU, 1 GB RAM, PowerVR SGX540 GPU,, 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash, 1080p video recording @ 30fps with continuous autofocus and stereo sound, VGA front-facing camera, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct and DLNA, GPS with A-GPS, 4GB of bui...
Cons: No Jelly Bean at launch, Mediocre sunlight legibility, Poor still camera and video recording quality, Non-hot-swappable memory card slot
Excerpt: A few months ago we reviewed the L7, a phone that did not did not really manage to win us over due to its performance, even if it looked very nice. The problem was the hardware inside was not on the same level as its looks, and you know what they say about judging a book by its cover... Today we will take a closer at the L9, let's hope LG got both aspects right this time.
Conclusion: What can I say? For a budget handset, the LG Optimus L9 impresses. In no way is the phone the best, but its sleek design, nice screen, and the fact that it runs so smooth with have you thinking otherwise. Be sure that you consider the options before you pick one up, however, because while the Optimus L9 is good enough to be worthy of a recommendation here in 2012, its aging hardware means that probably won’t be the case when you enter the final part of your two-year...
Summary: For $79.99, the LG Optimus L9 delivers solid performance, a bright 4.5-inch screen and long battery life. You also get some of the software innovations inside the pricier Optimus G, such as QuickMemo. We prefer this smartphone to the Galaxy Blaze 4G because you get a bigger screen in design that's lighter and thinner. While the camera doesn't wow, those looking for a bargain Android phone will really like what the L9 has to offer.
