LG Optimus GT540

 

Has LG's Optimus GT540 handset got the firepower to smash other low-end Android handsets?

Very stylish, Good range of features, Good audio output

Resistive touchscreen, Small keyboard keys, No camera flash

LG's new effort pairs great design with Android smarts, but it really needs an update

LG Optimus GT540

 

First announced at the CES tech show in Las Vegas, the LG Optimus GT540 forms part of the Korean brand's lineup of Android handsets and is largely targeted at first-time smartphone users. Considering that this is a mid-range phone, the finish is...

Resistance touchscreen, only Android 1.6

Chic design, large screen, social networking integration

Although it is let down by its resistive touchscreen and the somewhat dated Android 1.6 OS, the LG Optimus T540 is still a good choice for first-time smartphone users, thanks to its slick design, multimedia support and large screen.

LG Optimus GT540 review

 

Does this low cost Android handset deliver good value for money?

Camera belies the price tag ; Nice LG Android skin ; Good battery life ; Stylish chassis ; Easy to use 3.5mm headphone jack

Touchscreen not responsive ; Screen is small ; Web browsing is tricky ; Android 1.6 is behind the times ; UI lags at times

The LG Optimus GT540 is LG's latest shot at an Android smartphone, and the company's second to hit the UK. The last Android offering – the inTouch Max GW620 – came with a slide-out keyboard, but this time the keyboard has gone.

LG GT540 Optimus review

 

Although it's good value, the sleek Optimus has an out-of-date version of Android, and LG hasn't done much to improve on the basic interface

LG Optimus GT540 review

 

The LG Optimus GT540 may be aimed at users on a budget, but its build quality and design haven't suffered because of this. It has sleek curved edges at the top and bottom, and the silver version we reviewed has an attractive metallic-looking finish....

The LG Optimus GT540 is a fully featured Google Android smartphone hindered by a resistive touchscreen. It represents decent value at this price, provided you can live with its flaws.

LG Optimus GT540 review -

 

Social networkers are well catered for LG?s SNS client

A memory card is needed to operate the camera. The fact that LG hasn?t included one in the box is a sin

LG Optimus GT540

 

To me this looks a very stylish piece of kit. A brushed metal silver grey item with a large touch screen surely a must have for anyone who wants to look the part. However being down to earth my question is does it do the job?

Doing my searches found this LG Orange unit available from the link below, with three separate differently specified deals offering it free for £15 a month on a 24 month contract

LG - Optimus GT540

 

You won't find an Android-based handset for much less money than the LG Optimus GT540. It is free on contract for as little as £12 a month and costs £100 SIM-free. It is widely available too: ...

The LG Optimus GT540 has several features which belie its budgets status. The build is good, and you can use a skinned version of Android. The resistive screen is an obvious budget move, though, and Android 1.6 means you don't get access to the latest...
