For starters, the Optimus L3 II is of relatively small size, which makes it suitable for teenagers’ hands. Something tells us that ladies might also like its petite footprint. What few will be satisfied with, on the other hand, is the smartphone’s low-res IPS LCD display. Spreading 240 by 320 pixels across 3.2 inches of real estate gives us a disappointing figure of only 125ppi – low enough to bring tears to your eyes. Oh well, at least the screen exhibits some pretty decent viewing angles and good colors.
Considering that the LG Optimus L3 II is just an entry-level smartphone, we’re okay with it having just a 1GHz single-core processor. In fact, its performance is adequate as our quick test shows, although one shouldn’t expect any wonders out of it. What we’d also recommend not having high hopes for is the 5-megapixel camera on its back. Despite its 5 megapixels of resolution, it lacks auto-focus, so the photos that it takes are likely to be mediocre.
