LG Optimus L7: A Decent Entry Level Android 4.0 Phone

LG Optimus L7: A Decent Entry Level Android 4.0 Phone
News from The Droid Guy:

July 2nd, 2012 by Harshit Leave a reply »

The Optmus L7 belongs to the trio of phones in LG’s L series, announced during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, earlier this year. The L7 falls on the higher end of series and is more powerful than the other two phones.

The build quality of L7 is commendable. The phone has been well built, and no component feels flimsy. The battery is removable and has 1700 mAh of power. The design is clean and sophisticated, and aesthetically it’s no less than the top budget smartphones.

Specs wise, the phone is not as exciting though. One of the biggest limitations of this phone is its single core 1 GHz processor, which is almost a turn off in this age of quad-core powered smartphones. It has a RAM of 512 MB, and an internal memory of 4 GB, out of which only 2.7 GB is usable. Benchmark performance test confirmed that L7 is an average performer at best. Since Optimus L7 runs on Ice Cream Sandwich which requires more horsepower than subsequent versions, the overall performance drops even further.

Bell to launch LG Optimus L5 for only $ 199.95 unlocked
News from Android Authority:

Canadian carriers are not exactly known for their small prices. The prices of phones on contracts may look reasonable at first sight, but the contracts last for three years, and the carriers make sure they make a lot more money on a phone than they are investing in subsidies. This is why it’s a little surprising to see Bell selling a decent Android 4.0 smartphone for only $ 200 unlocked.

The LG Optimus L5 specs include a 800 Mhz Cortex A5 processor, which should be significantly faster than ARM11 (by 20% or so). The good news is that it seems we’re finally getting to the point where we can get rid of ARMv6 processors in our phones, and we’re moving fully to ARMv7 processors, even for the low-end of the market.

Cortex A5 is an ARMv7 processor and the phone comes with Android 4.0, which means that Chrome should run on it (Chrome doesn’t run on the low-end ARMv6 chips). Alternatively, if Chrome doesn’t run on ARM v7 right away, Google can implement support for it much more easily, than if they were to port Chrome to the ARMv6 architecture.

The Optimus L5 also includes specs such as a 480×320 resolution 4-inch display, 512 MB of RAM, 2…………… continues on Android Authority

TECH TIME: Verizon’s LG Lucid offers decent smartphone for low price VIDEO

TECH TIME: Verizon’s LG Lucid offers decent smartphone for low price VIDEO
News from Dearborn Press and Guide:

There are tons of new smartphone releases each year, usually each one greater than the next as all the big brands compete to have the most popular and latest greatest phone on the market.

These are the offerings that draw the crowd that wants the absolute best, but they are usually pretty pricey. So what is someone to do who wants to save a few bucks but not get a junk phone?

Thankfully, there is an increasing amount of quality products coming out for the more budget conscious. For Verizon Wireless customers, this list now includes the LG Lucid, a new smartphone from Verizon that isn’t going to compete with the biggest name phones like your iPhones, HTC Ones or Galaxy S3s, but will serve the needs of a less demanding user.

I recently spent some time with the Lucid, and here’s a full report.

LOOKS

You get the standard thin candybar design on the Lucid, and its 4-inch screen is pretty large but smaller than many new phones on the market. This may or not be something you appreciate. If you want a huge phone, there are plenty of options out there bigger than the Lucid. But I’m willing to bet most people will find 4 inches big enough. It feels quite comfortable in your hand, which is important. Gorilla Glass protects the screen, which is nice, and the weight is a very light 5 ounces. Exact size specs are 4.69 inches high, 2.4…………… continues on Dearborn Press and Guide

LG Optimus Elite – a Budget and Eco-friendly Phone
News from The Driod Guy:

June 1st, 2012 by Roxanne Leave a reply »

Here is another smartphone that is green, eco-friendly, and price conscious. This is also good for starters. The LG Optimus Elite is the successor of the very popular Optimus S.

The plastic case is made up to 50 percent of recycled plastic.  LG Optimus is inexpensive, small and light with 3.5-inch capacitive display, single core 800MHz processor, 512 MB RAM, 5-megapixel camera and also enabled with NFC capability.  By the way, this is the third device launched from Sprint.

LG Optimus Elite is not really for everyone because it has its pros and cons.  Indeed this is really good for starters for being budget and eco-friendly which is made of recycled plastic, small, lightweight and pocket-friendly.

LG Optimus Elite comes with Gingerbread.  For advanced users of smartphones, I know you are not comfortable with it and with its single-core processor, you may find this one very slow.  With a screen size of 3.5 inches it has a low resolution approximately at 320×480.  It is also one of…………… continues on The Driod Guy

UK: LG Prada 3.0 can now be yours for just £239.99
News from Unwired View:

The LG Prada 3.0 (or Prada Phone by LG 3.0, or Prada Phone 3.0 by LG – the company doesn’t seem to be very clear about this phone’s name) has been available in the UK since February. So far, the pricing’s been indicative of a typical high-end Android smartphone. But now you have the chance of getting a pretty decent handset for a great price. And let’s not forget that it has the name Prada slapped on its front – that’s got to be worth something to someone.

The Prada 3.0 can now be yours for just £239.99, a far cry from the £400+ you were previously required to pay for this exact same device. Expansys is the retailer making this possible, so go there and order some Pradas. At this price, it’s actually not a bad smartphone.
