LG Optimus Elite (Sprint) review: LG Optimus Elite (Sprint)

 

TheLG Optimus Elitesucceeds at the basic while throwing in a few extras like Google Wallet and Visual Voicemail. Camera quality is quite good.

The Optimus Elite has a small, low-resolution display and a plastic build. There was some distortion in call quality.

The LG Optimus Elite packs a couple of interesting extras, but at its core it's no more than an average Android phone with a less than elite design.

LG Optimus Elite ( Sprint)

 

Stop me if you've heard this one, but I'm going to tell you about my experiences using an LG Optimus phone. All right, I know that's a bit snarky, but it's difficult not to make a joke when you've seen so many members of the Optimus family (more than a...

LG Optimus Elite (Sprint)

 

The LG Optimus Elite is friendly to the earth and your wallet, at the expense of power and performance.

Eco-friendly. Very little bloatware

Low-end specs. Average camera

This is the same phone as the LG Optimus Elite ($149.99, 3.5 stars) we reviewed over on Virgin Mobile. It loses half a star here because it doesn't stand out as much among the low-cost smartphones in Sprint's lineup.

LG Optimus Elite (Virgin Mobile)

 

The LG Optimus Elite is a fine way to get connected with an affordable service plan from Virgin Mobile, but it's running on dated hardware.

Responsive performance. Eco-friendly. Affordable plan pricing. NFC support

Low-end specs. Average camera

You get 1.93GB of internal memory. There's also an empty microSD card slot underneath the battery cover, in which my 32GB and 64GB SanDisk microSD cards worked fine. The Elite did a nice job handling a wide variety of media. The phone played AAC, MP3,...

LG Optimus Elite Review

 

Back when we reviewed the LG Optimus S a year and a half ago we came away amazed that such a low-end device could perform so well. Now LG is back with the Optimus Elite for Sprint. The follow-up improves on the original by adding a bigger display,...

Solid build, thin design ; Good battery life ; Nice performance for the price

Poor screen resolution ; So-so camera results

The Optimus One line of phones set the bar for entry-level Android devices, and the Optimus Elite is a worthy successor to the Optimus S. It improves on the winning formula in just about every category, and while it may have shortcomings it is still...

LG Optimus Elite review

 

Green, eco-friendly, and price conscious, the LG Optimus is certainly a budget phone - But is it for you?When I found out I'd get to do the LG Optimus Elite review, I was happy, to ...

If the Optimus Elite can get the same kind of developer love the Optimus S got, well, that'll certainly extend the life of this phone, but with the internals it's packing, there's no amount of recycled bottle caps that'll make purchasing this phone...

This is one great phone!

 

This is my first smart phone and I love it! This is my 3rd LG phone - the others were not smart phones, but great ones. This phone does everything I want it to do. I had a time learning to use the virtual querty keyboard, but that's true of any...

It's a great starter smartphone

 

It's a great starter smartphone for older people or preteens, it's easy to use and use apps. It's easy to fit in a pocket or small purse.
