Visually, however, it is quite similar to its brethren. Slim, light, and made mostly out of plastic, the LG Optimus L5 II shares a number of visual traits with the rest of the company’s mid-range portfolio. It is compact and the size feels right in the hand. The glossy black plastic doesn't help the grip much and is a fingerprint magnet, but the chassis is somewhat chubby so it helps grip it tighter
With its 1GHz single-core processor, the LG Optimus L5 II won’t set any new performance records but the MediaTek-made SoC should adequate for every-day use. Android 4.1.2 comes loaded on the device out of the box enhanced using LG’s custom Optimus UI user interface, and it moves quite smoothly powered by the MTK chip.
