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 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 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.
