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.

LG Optimus S (Republic Wireless)

PC Magazine
15 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.

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.
