LG Optimus L3 2 review

 

This entry level handset is small in size, but can it achieve big things?

Customisation options ; Good contacts manager ; Decent battery life ; Micro SD card slot

Low res screen ; Small built in storage ; Poor camera ; Sometimes lags

LG might mostly be known for the popular Nexus 4 and other premium smartphones but that only accounts for one end of its range. The LG Optimus L3 2 takes a position right at the other end as a truly entry level handset.

LG Optimus L3 II E430

 

The dinky LG Optimus L3 II is pocket friendly, but is it compromised by its small screen?

Small size, Voice-activated camera shutter, Long battery life

Low spec processor, Lacks a brightness sensor for the screen, Low-res display, Earpiece distorts at higher volume levels

LG Optimus L3 II

 

It's very cheap, but its tiny screen and low resolution aren't very good for web browsing

LG Optimus L3 II - Review

 

The LG Optimus L3 was part of the surprisingly successful L-Series of budget Android phones. So successful that there is a second series now available.

LG Optimus L3 II Review

 

Unfortunately, the Optimus L3 II has had too many features taken

The LG Optimus L3 II is less than £100 but just doesn’t offer enough. The small, low-res display is not user friendly

Review LG Optimus E430 L3 II Smartphone

 

Battery giant or performance dwarf? With the E430 Optimus L3 II, LG is introducing a smartphone to the market that is not only extremely cheap (99 Euros, ~$129) - it also promises to have an extremely long battery life. But what can the little squirt...

Very long battery life, Low price, Handy size, Solid manufacturing, Attractive home screen, The solid, simple manufacturing of the low-cost device. You certainly don't have to feel ashamed of it in public

Very small display, Weak resolution, Weak graphics performance, A few more pixels would have done the display good. A resolution of 240x320 pixels won't make the screen anyone's favorite

LG Optimus L3 II Review

 

The LG Optimus L3 II is an extremely affordable and basic Android smartphone with a tiny 3.2-inch display. It also happens to be the successor...

Excellent battery life ; Fluid performance

Small low-res screen ; Disappointing camera

With a price of around $140 off contract, the Optimus L3 II has fierce competition among low-end Androids, but not only. We honestly think the small screen in the L3 II takes a lot of the beauty of Android and that's one big reason against buying it....
