LG Optimus Black review: Super-thin phone proves hard to love

 

It's easy to see the LG Optimus Black as something of an anti-climax after the South Korean phone peddler snatched the world record for the first dual-core phone with the LG Optimus 2X. After all, it's powered by a single core, can't shoot in full HD,...

Super bright screen

LG's software is worse than ever, Android 2.2

A perfectly acceptable Android phone - but that's not enough these days

LG Optimus S (Republic Wireless) Beta Review

 

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,...

Inexpensive data plan, Sturdy build, No contract

Short battery life, Some dropped calls, Currently no in-call handoffs to switch seamlessly between Wi-Fi and network, No high-end phones offered on the network

LG Optimus S (Republic Wireless)

 

Very inexpensive monthly plans. Good call quality over Sprint's cellular network. Republic Wireless software doesn't degrade OS performance

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

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.

LG Optimus U (U.S. Cellular)

 

The budget-priced LG Optimus U soars on U.S. Cellular with its excellent mix of speed, features, and good design decisions.

Exceptional battery life. Good mix of size, speed, and screen for the price. Runs Android 2.2.

A bit heavy. Cramped on-screen keyboard.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions There's 172MB of free internal memory. The side-mounted microSD slot worked fine with my 32GB SanDisk card, and LG throws in a 2GB card to get you started. There's also a standard-size 3.5mm headphone jack. Music...

LG Optimus S (Sprint)

 

The LG Optimus S is a budget-priced Android smartphone for Sprint that can run with the big dogs.

Pleasant form factor. Runs Android 2.2. Useful Sprint ID interface enhancements. Mobile hotspot capability. Good battery life.

Screen resolution, CPU, and camera are a step behind the class leaders. Screen is a little small.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions The side-mounted microSD card slot works with 32GB cards; my 16GB SanDisk card worked fine, and there's also 127MB of free internal memory. MP3 and AAC music tracks sounded clear and punchy through Motorola S9-HD...

LG Optimus T and Optimus S review

 

It wasn't long ago that buying a smartphone meant spending at least a Benjamin and committing to an expensive 2-year contract. But things are changing,

Solid build and performance ; Excellent value ; Funky color option

Average battery life ; Video recording could be better ; Stock Android camera app

LG Optimus S Review

 

LG is serious about their Android push, and the Optimus S is a very nice device. Like the Mazda RX-8's tiny 1.3L engine, the Optimus S does a lot with a little and delivers smooth, quick performance. At $50 it is ...

LG Optimus U Reviewed

 

The LG Optimus series of entry level Android powered smartphones has been a wise move by LG. LG has now targeted U.S. Cellular with the LG Optimus U. This release, like its brethren - the Optimus T Optimus S, Optimus M and LG Vortex, is a solid phone...

Overall, the LG Optimus U is a great addition to their already strong entry level marketed Optimus line up. With a two year contract and mail in rebate, the LG Optimus U is free on U.S. Cellular. Without the mail in rebate the LG Optimus U comes in at...

LG Optimus S Review

 

The LG Optimus S is an entry level Android powered smartphone exclusively available from Sprint. Similar to how Samsung has released the Galaxy S series of phones, LG has also followed suit with the Optimus series. The LG Optimus S is the Sprint...

Overall the LG Optimus S is a definite 'Average' phone in the market. Coming in with a $50 price tag with a two year contract, Sprint is slowly beginning to put the line between the words 'affordable' and 'cheap' in the smartphone line up. The $50...
