LG Optimus Net By 3G.co.uk

 

The LG Optimus Net is a neat-sized Android device at a budget price. It has a good go at offering media and web facilities, but doesn't excel at either

Decent budget snapper; solid chassis; budget price

Small display; lack of onboard storage; user interface is not impressive

Just like its 2010 sibling, the Optimus Net rocks a 3.2-inch (320 x 480) touchscreen powered by an 800MHz processor. However, unlike its brother it'll land in Blighty running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS, equipping the phone with a re-jigged UI and...

LG Optimus Net Review

 

LG isn't as productive as Samsung or HTC in churning out Android handsets as if there's no tomorrow, but it did provide us with a fair amount this year, and the LG Optimus Net is its latest low-end offering.
