Conclusion: The LG Optimus One is one of the most affordable Android 2.2 phones available right now, but all in all is a fairly average mid-range phone. If you want an inexpensive phone that can effectively double as a sat-nav and a music player then the Optimus One will satisfy.
Summary: LG's been putting out touch screen phones for a long time, but has yet to pull off a proper success in the amazingly competitive machine view. Its Optimus GT540 was a poor attempt at making a stylish and original phone, and ultimately ruined by a terrible resistive touch screen.
Conclusion: The LG Optimus One, like a McDonalds meal, gives Android fans what they want and some new shiny toys, but ultimately this is a budget phone whose technical specifications fail to impress. µ
Pros: The UI is as good for Froyo as it was with the previous version of Android.
Cons: The handset proves that a 3.2-inch display for web browsing just feels inadequate with a problematic pinch to zoom., The 600MHz chip is just not adequate for mobile Internet.
Conclusion: The LG Optimus One is a well-priced Android handset. It’s certainly not top of the range (thus far, LG hasn’t really got a flagship Android device), but it does cover all the bases. The camera is a little iffy and it’s annoying there is no camera hardware key on the side of the device.
