LG Optimus L3, Cheap Android with Luxury Design
Android smartphone price are more affordable. The vendors are starting to spend a lot of lower-priced Android phones, LG is no exception. South Korean manufacturer is presenting its latest low-cost Android handset, Optimus L3. Like what?
L3 design looks quite pretty. Maybe it felt looked more expensive than the actual price. The shape is a rectangle with the corners of the firm.
Body was made entirely of plastic. But not cheap impression. There are metal accents around the body. And the textured back for easy grip.
Various buttons and ports scattered around the body of L3. As the volume, on-off button, headset jack and microUSB port. But do not look the camera button.
With its small body, L3 operated quite comfortably with one hand. Overall, the body is quite stylish and cheap mobile phones are not impressive.
L3 arguably mini mobile phone with 3.2 inch screen size. Low prices also affected the quality of the screen. With a resolution of 240x320 pixels, the image is quite rough.
So users can not expect much would a brilliant display as the phone is more expensive. Especially in the sun, the screen less noticeable.
Watch videos or access the website is also less convenient. But if it is used may not be a problem.
Gingerbread Android handset into the operating system. Customizable user interface with Optimus 2.0 Lite, there are five homescreen.
As usual, the user can install or remove the widgets that you want in all of the screen. Also provided some useful shortcuts in the notification area, such as Wi Fi and Bluetooth.
That is quite a problem is through a full qwerty keyboard typing may not go smoothly. For smaller screen sizes automatically makes letters small. So any potential users press when typing.
Not Bad Performance
Equipped with a 800 MHz processor, L3 decent performance. Displacement between the homescreen or accessing applications running smoothly enough, though certainly not as good as high end phone class.
Play games on this phone is also arguably going well. Popular game Angry Birds, for example, can be played smoothly.
Internet access is also faster with HSDPA 3G connectivity and it support Adobe Flash Player. Just because the screen is low resolution, do not expect to be too uncomfortable to read web pages.
Resolution of 3 megapixel cameras become a mainstay of L3 to take pictures. There is no flash so it is less potent in the target object in the dark. Nor does it seem physical buttons for a slingshot.
There are several settings such as color effects, timer and shooting mode. In the room, the picture is somewhat blurry and lacking detail. But outside the room and adequate light conditions, the results are pretty good.
Camera at L3 can record video at 30fps. But only a 640x480 VGA resolution makes the video less can be expected to be quite useful even for just a moment to record a particular moment.
This handset offers 1GB of internal memory that can be expanded by microSD up to 32GB capacity. There is a music player and FM radio for entertainment, with bursts of sound that bad.
With the stock battery 1500 mAh and specifications are not so high, the durability is pretty good battery. Can last all day without needing to be recharged in normal use.
In appearance, this handset looks pretty fancy if you look only at the cheap price. Indeed, users have to compromise with a lot of features tailored to the cheap price tag. However, overall performance was not bad enough qualified processors are supported.
- Screen is less clear
- Camera less than the maximum
