Stylish Meets Cheap

The LG Optimus L5 is an incredibly stylish phone that comes without the hefty price tag attached. However, underneath that finesse and sleekness is proof that LG have had to make some hefty cuts to the power in order to count for the low price. For that, the Optimus L5 gets a rating of 3.5 out of 5.

The LG Optimus L5 comes pre-installed with Ice Cream Sandwich on board which is impressive considering that the L5 is a very modest handset. The interface of this operating system is very simple and easy to use even for those are technophobic.

However, backing up the Android 4.0 operating system is a rather weak 800MHz processor which is obviously one of the cuts that LG had to make in order to make this handset more affordable. Swiping through the home screens and menus was smooth although at several times it was known to stick and become rather sluggish. If anything this under powered processor lets own what could have been a very powerful phone.

Another cut back by LG may have been the memory alongside the processor, as once the L5 starts to fill up on apps and other memory guzzling functions, it started to become slow and there was a noticeable difference in its smoothness.

Whilst the 4 inch screen is big enough to offer easy typing and web browsing, it only has a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels which is rather weak compared to the LG Optimus 4X HD which has a 720 pixel display. However, this resolution is decent enough for the attached price tag.

Despite this weak resolution, the screen is bright, sharp and vivid enough to handle most tasks such as games and playing low quality videos. But if you’ve got your heart set on watching videos on the move, then you may want to fork out a bit more money and choose a better screen. However, if your only hopes are to send emails, text and call, access a few apps and casually browse the web, then the Optimus L5 will do just fine.

In terms of aesthetics, the L5 is rather stylish as the front as a chrome effect that looks similar to the Samsung Galaxy range. However, it does the job and makes the L5 look more like an upmarket handset.

Positioned on the front of the handset is a single physical button which, at one touch, will take you straight back to the home screen. On either side are several touch capacitive buttons that light up slightly when pressed and then blend out of sight when they are not being used. Although this doesn’t do much in terms of functions and its power, it is a nice little touch that makes the L5 even more pleasing on the eyes.

Stylish looking and incredibly easy to use, the LG Optimus L5 with Ice Cream Sandwich is an excellent addition to this handset that will satisfy those with a thirst for technology. However, the weaker processor may mean that this handset doesn’t offer up all it is capable of in terms of functionality.

One good thing about this phone is it won’t lag, maybe depending on its usage. A must have if you want better performance in texting, browsing the net or calling.

I have been enjoying the games here on my LG Optimus L5 and so far so good. I also like the size of the font when I am texting.

this phone has a very good size that could fit our hand and even it has a wide screen it is easily operated with one hand because the screen s not so thin not to big to handle, and the tapered back cover has LG's typical “snake skin” pattern, thus involuntary slippage is out of the question isn't it amazing.

the LG L5 has a 5MP camera with led flash so you could enjoy taking pictures even at nighttime , but unfortunately it does not have the secondary camera or the front camera so video calling is impossible.so if you are in the whole video chat scene, it will be a bummer.

7out of 10

the display on the screen is sufficiently bright for operation outside on a sunny day. but the viewing angles is so weak especially the vertical ones, where the slightest tilt washes out color and contrast so disappointing.

5out of 10

the LG L% voice quality is not good, unfortunately, plus the phone only records VGA video, coupled with the lack of a frontfacing camera, place it at a disadvantage amongst the competition in that crowded price range.

8out of 10

the phone has a good build quality, above average battery life, and also takes decent pictures, which make it a good everyday handset.

(Wireless Phone Accessory) Received product quiklcy in quality retail packaging. Activation was simple and quick (I did NOT port a number, just got a new one).Comparing to my previous phone, a Motorola Droid (original) -The good -- This phone is MUCH faster, you can tell when it's responding to opening programs, obtaining GPS navigation directions, really in every aspect- The phone's speaker (speaker phone) offers amazing clarity for what it is.- Since the speaker/speakerphone is so loud when it's turned all the way up, it makes for a better alarm than the Droid- The web (at least for me) is really quick to open, load show search results, overall very pleased with browsing on this- Voice dictation/recognition works AWESOME I'd say even a bit better than the Moto Droid, which was really great with this- The Battery seems to last longer, at least right now. Even after messing with the phone, apps, downloads, etc. for about an hour the battery was still near full.- The phone's VERY light would could actually be a bad thing (I could picture myself dropping it a little easier)Not so good -- The texting portion is a bit harder on this than on the Moto Droid there are some minor things, but it's also noted that most of these inconveniences will be overcome by using the phone more and getting more accustomed to it. (For example on the Droid, exclamation mark, question mark, period, comma, etc would be offered after every space' in case you wanted to end a sentence.. This phone requires me to press and hold on one of the letters to get the same result). Not a huge deal, just slows me down a bit.ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE When I was activating this phone w/Virgin Mobile, I was offered insurance on the phone for $5 a month. They also mentioned the deductible would be 25 dollars, and I could redeem this twice a year. I am noting this because it's CHEAPER than listed some places regarding Virgin mobile's insurance.For the price of the phone, and the plan $50.00 a month for 1200 talk minutes, unlimited data and unlimited text it's hard to feel taken' it's a great feeling stepping away from the huge corporate V . http://mwzgizsqe.com [url=http://wdmsgmutkeo.com]wdmsgmutkeo[/url] [link=http://wfapyms.com]wfapyms[/link]
