LG Optimus L3

 

Costing only £70 this is one of the cheapest Android phones we've ever seen.

Low asking price, Long battery life

Good performance from the processor, Screen is very poor, Camera isn't much to write home about., Uses an old version of Android

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?

LG Optimus L3 Review: In Depth

 

LG (like Sony and HTC) has streamed its 2012 line-up to just four phones. The LG Optimus L3 is the baby of the range, a small, Android equipped smartphone priced between £69-150. LG has lost ground…

LG Optimus L3

The LG Optimus L3 is an easy to use smartphone that will suit many needs. It has a great battery life, can download apps and delivers a decent web browsing experience, but that doesn’t stop it being distinctly average in every other area. LG Optimus L3...

LG Optimus L3

 

To every superphone there must be an equal and opposite budget phone. While LG is getting ready to release its quad-core Optimus 4X HD, they've decided to plop out this little fella in the meantime.

The Optimus L3 is very much a budget phone, and is indeed cheaper than some of the phones I unfavourably compared it to in this review, but there is no single feature on this phone that really makes it stand out as a worthwhile purchase.

LG Optimus L3 review

 

The LG Optimus L3 budget Android smartphone impresses, but falters where it counts the most

Overall, the LG Optimus L3 provides a lot of good value for your money. At an RRP of R1,500, the processing power and functionality is very good for those looking to go smart on a budget.

LG Optimus L3 E400

 

Samsung's Korean neighbour throws its hat into the budget smartphone ring, with the first of its L-Style mobile devices, the LG Optimus L3.

Really affordable budget-friendly pricetag; spec bang for your bucks; sturdy build quality and pocket-friendly dimensions.

Crappy display; below par camera; and back cover is a bit of a schlep to remove.
