LG Optimus F3 (T-Mobile)

 

A good deal if you don't mind a little interface tweaking, the LG Optimus F3 is a budget-minded workhorse smartphone.

Inexpensive. Strong battery life in a compact device

Gimmicky UI looks especially cluttered on a screen this small

LG has been earning some headlines for a growing collection of big-screen phones like the 5.5-inch Optimus G Pro. The Optimus F3 (free with a contract; $240 without) is not one of them; at 4 inches, its 800-by-480-pixel screen is among the smallest...

LG Optimus F3 (Sprint)

 

The LG Optimus F3 for Sprint is a basic cheap smartphone that offers nifty multitasking capabilities in a compact design, but a low-res display and mediocre camera make it a tough sell.

Lightweight and compact design; Floating apps feature; Home button LED notifications; Affordable

Sluggish benchmark performance; Lackluster camera; Runs warm; Poor call quality; Small onboard memory

The LG Optimus F3 packs some cool features like floating apps and Home button LED notifications into a lightweight design. However, while this Android phone is $29 with a 2-year contract, there are other devices in the same price range (or cheaper)...

LG Optimus F3

 

As someone who's getting more baffled by the ever-expanding screen sizes of smartphones, for me it's nice to see a relatively compact Android device, like the LG Optimus F3, coming out of the pipeline from time to time.

The LG Optimus F3 is inexensive with or without a carrier contract, has long-lasting battery life, and comes with Google’s TalkBack feature for the visually impaired.

The Optimus F3 showed inconsistent 4G data performance and call quality was mediocre.

If you’re looking for a compact Android handset, the LG Optimus F3 will satisfy prepaid customers. As an on-contract phone, however, look to other free smartphones that are better.

LG Optimus F3 (Sprint)

 

The LG Optimus F3 really goes the distance, with terrific battery life for an affordable Android phone.

Amazing battery life. Solid build quality. Cool multitasking. Good value for money

Camera isn't great. Limited built-in memory. Bluetooth voice dialing needs help

Good things can come in small packages. If you're looking for a basic smartphone, the new LG Optimus F3 for Sprint ($29.99-249.99) delivers spectacular battery life and decent performance in an easily pocketable package. It's a worthy follow-up to the...

LG Optimus F3 Review

 

LG is never one to shy away from gaining traction in the entry-level segment of the market, seeing that it's still highly regarded as the bread and butter of a company's growth opportunity. Likely one to attract people to its $29.99 on-contract cost,...

Employs some of the new LG Optimus UI enhancements ; Lots of connectivity features for a budget phone

Cheap feel & construction ; Shoots noisy photos & video ; Low quality display

Indeed, there’s just so much where an entry-level smartphone can go – especially when last year’s mid-rangers tend to occupy the same space nowadays. Looking at the $29.99 on-contract price point of the LG Optimus F3, it might not scare the pants off...

LG Optimus F3 (T-Mobile)

 

A good deal if you don't mind a little interface tweaking, the LG Optimus F3 is a budget-minded workhorse smartphone.

For all its limits, the F3 still represents a good value. If you compare this to other, pricier Android phones, the F3 looks weak—but it’s a quality deal compared to hobbled, non-smartphones in T-Mobile’s lineup like the Gravity Q that barely cost...

Expert review by:

LG Optimus F3 (Sprint)

 

The LG Optimus F3 really goes the distance, with terrific battery life for an affordable Android phone.

If you’re worried about running out of juice, this is the phone for you. Sprint has a number of decent midrange Android phones, including the rugged Kyocera Torque and the much more generic Sprint Force. They all benchmark a bit faster than the Optimus...
