LG Optimus S (Republic Wireless) Beta Review

LAPTOP Magazine
17 January 2012
  • Summary: The biggest draw of the Optimus S on Republic Wireless is its dirt-cheap plan. For $655 over the course of two years, you get a phone with decent performance, unlimited text, calls and data. Let's not forget that you aren't even tied to a 2-year plan, so you can opt out anytime you want. But does the service work well enough to jump ship from more established carriers? Right now, the answer is no.

LG Optimus S (Republic Wireless)

PC Magazine
16 February 2011
  • Conclusion: Republic Wireless gives you an LG Optimus S Android phone for under $20 per month, but the Wi-Fi portion isn't reliable enough to use as a main phone.
  • Pros: Very inexpensive monthly plans. Good call quality over Sprint's cellular network. Republic Wireless software doesn't degrade OS performance.
  • Cons: Inconsistent call quality over Wi-Fi. Can't automatically hand-off between cellular and Wi-Fi connections. Your caller ID only shows via cellular, not Wi-Fi.

LG Optimus S (Sprint)

CNET
14 February 2011
  • Summary: The LG Optimus S is an affordable yet full-featured Android smartphone for Sprint, but we did wish the call quality were better.
  • Pros: The LG Optimus S has an attractive, slim profile with features that include GPS, EV-DO Rev. A, and Wi-Fi with tethering capabilities. It also has a 3.2-megapixel camera and it ships with Android 2.2.
  • Cons: The LG Optimus S' slower processor means it doesn't have Flash video in the browser. The camera doesn't have HD video capture or an LED flash. Call quality was mixed.

LG Optimus S (Sprint)

PC Magazine
8 February 2011
  • Conclusion: The Optimus S is the best budget Android phone we've seen, a well-tuned, feature-packed touch-screen slab with all of the functionality most consumers and small business users need.
  • Pros: Pleasant form factor. Runs Android 2.2. Useful Sprint ID interface enhancements. Mobile hotspot capability. Good battery life.
  • Cons: Screen resolution, CPU, and camera are a step behind the class leaders. Screen is a little small.

Quick Look: First Impressions of the LG Optimus S

AndroidSPIN
25 November 2010
  • Excerpt: The Optimus S by LG, an affordable Android handset for Sprint. Yesterday the Optimus S arrived at my doorstep.  I’ve been looking forward to this phone.  It’s weird to say, because it is a midrange phone, but the price point is what gets me:  $49.99 with a new two-year contract. I was surprised when I opened the box and found one of the nicest feeling phones yet.  The outer casing is nothing like the slippery plastic of other smartphones that I have been using recently.

LG Optimus S

MobileTechReview.com
21 November 2010
  • Conclusion: If you're on a tight budget and want an Android smartphone, or perhaps simply your first smartphone, the LG Optimus S is a great way to start. It's the least expensive Android phone on Sprint, but that doesn't mean it's lacking. The specs are decidedly mid-range and that's a good thing given the low price. The phone feels good in hand and is solid.
  • Pros: Extremely affordable Android smartphone with Froyo Android OS 2.2.
  • Cons: We're still not sold on Sprint ID.
