LG Optimus T Review


We take a look at the latest entry-level Android smartphone for T-Mobile -- the LG Optimus T

It's a free Android smartphone, period ; Pleasant experience with great battery life

The limited processor prohibits Flash capability, also lacking some other higher-end features

The LG Optimus T is about as good as it gets when you're talking about free Android-powered smartphones, which is actually a lot more than you'd expect.

LG Optimus G Pro (AT&T)


The LG Optimus G Pro is a well-designed, well-sized phablet with an accent on the phone part, balancing a big screen and single-handed usability admirably.

Actually feels like a phone, not a mini-tablet. Sharp screen. Fast processor. Very customizable UI.

Call quality and camera quality could be better. You can't multitask enough apps.

LG Optimus G Pro (AT&T)


The LG Optimus G Pro is a monster of a smartphone. Sporting a massive 5.5-inch, 1080p display and speedy quad-core processor, LG's flagship phablet has landed in the United States as an AT&T exclusive for $199 with a two-year contract. Still, a few...

LG Optimus G (AT&T)


The LG Optimus G for AT&T is a quad-core beast, but a disappointing camera and heating issues hold it back from smartphone perfection.

Blistering quad-core performance. Gorgeous display. Sleek design. Strong battery performance.

Disappointing camera. Runs hot. Plenty of bloatware.

LG Optimus G (AT&T)


The Optimus G isn't just the first phone on AT&T to feature a quad-core processor. It's also LG's first legitimate competitor against the Samsung Galaxy S III, the iPhone 5 and other premium smartphones. LG additionally packs this 4.7-inch device with...

LG Optimus T


You won't find a better Android bargain than this well-designed smart phone.

Quite well equipped for a smart phone this affordable, the LG Optimus T is a great choice for bargain hunters. Its low price of $29 (free for the black version), solid design, and ease of use will appeal to smart phone newbies. The biggest competitor...

LG Optimus T (T-Mobile)


While the Android invasion's most advanced handsets get the lion's share of glory, value-priced devices can make a big impact, too. Case in point: the LG Optimus T. This low-cost Android 2.2 phone (free for the black version, $29.99 for burgundy and...

LG Electronics Optimus T Review - PCWorld


Budget buyers, rejoice: LG has made Android affordable with its new Optimus T handset on T-Mobile ($30 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a new two-year contract; price as of November 20, 2010). But how much bang are you getting for your buck? Considering...

Affordable Android 2.2 device

Poor multimedia capabilities

The Optimus T for T-Mobile is incredibly affordable, but you get what you pay for-- the multimedia features are lackluster.

LG Optimus T review


It's easier than ever these days to get an Android smartphone. There are many budget models on the market, like the slate-style Motorola Charm and the sliding Samsung Intercept , both of which retail for under a hundred dollars. But LG has topped them...

The LG Optimus T has a simple touch-screen design, Wi-Fi, GPS, Wi-Fi hot-spot capabilities, 3G support, and a 3.2-megapixel camera, and it ships with Android 2.2. It's also very affordable.

The LG Optimus T has a slower processor and lower resolution display when compared with higher-end smartphones. There's no LED flash, and it doesn't have HD video capture. Flash 10.1 is not available with the Optimus T's browser even though Android 2.2...

The LG Optimus T is one of the best entry-level smartphones you can buy, with a feature set that is on par with devices more than twice its price.
