LG Optimus L3 Review

 

As you probably know, the new L-line by LG is style-conscious, so the L3 is actually a very interesting product, as it should be both inexpensive and good-looking at the same time. Yeah, we've seen dirt-cheap Android smartphones alright, but what about...

Looks better than the average entry-level phone ; Good performance and fluid UI ; Flash Player support

Overpriced ; The screen brings tears to your eyes... literally ; Very poor camera

All in all, there's no doubt that the LG Optimus L3 is one perfectly usable handset, with no serious issues to cause problems with its operation. We do like the fact that it looks better than your average low-end affair, and it actually outperforms it...

LG Optimus L3 Android phone (preview)

 

LG Optimus L3 preview: A stylish budget Android phone with a small screen

Attractive looking design ; Floating" screen ; Only $99

Small, low-res display ; No Ice Cream Sandwich software

Retailing for just $99 through Telstra, the pre-paid Optimus L3 is likely to bring some much needed style to the budget end of the Android market. It's just a shame about that small, low-resolution display and the lack of Ice Cream Sandwich software.

LG Optimus L3 review

 

An entry-level handset that has a less than groundbreaking array of specs

1GB internal storage ; Compact ; Intuitive UI ; Strong battery life

Terrible display ; Clunky charging port ; Uncomfortable design ; No future Android updates

Update: We've altered our review to reflect improved pricing on the Optimus L3 - does that make it any more worthwhile as a smartphone though?
