LG sells 10 million Optimus L-Series phones
Korean handset manufacturer LG has a lot to celebrate. The LG built Google Nexus 4 is hard to find and the LG Optimus G is a top-shelf model that can be mentioned in the same conversation as the Samsung Galaxy S III, the HTC DROID DNA and the HTC One X. But on Sunday, LG has announced that it has sold 10 million units of its LG Optimus L-Series which includes the LG Optimus L3 to the LG Optimus L9. LG has obviously read Samsung's notices celebrating sales of 30 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S III because even LG calls its accomplishment "modest". Besides, the 10 million in sales that LG is highlighting covers 4 different models.

The LG Optimus L9 is part of a series that has sold 10 million units

The LG Optimus L9 is part of a series that has sold 10 million units

From the 3.2 inch screen of the LG Optimus L3 to the 4.7 inch screen on the LG Optimus L9, the series covers a wide range of sizes but all of the models are based on five aesthetic elements. As listed by LG, the five include: "Modern Square Style for a comfortable grip, Floating Mass Technology for a slimmer look, Seamless Layout for a more intuitive arrangement of keys, Harmonized Design Contrast utilizing metallic accents and Sensuous Slim Shape that draws one's gaze to the unique form factor." All of the phones in the series are available in more than 50 markets.

All of the LG L-Series phones include LG's proprietary UX features like Quick Memo, which allows you to write a memo using your fingertip, and send it to your friends or family. Also included in the Series is QTranslator which instantly translaters words and sentences into any of 64 foreign languages.

This is one main reason I'm so envious about android... They are so much affordable to get an eye catching looking phone with reasonable spec like LG does :(

Btw, well done LG

Too bad my interwebz sarcasm and irony skills haven't reached a level high enough to where even the most incompetent of PA's users will be able to know when I use it. :P

Oh well.

Any high end Android phone is, at least, as good as an iphone.

LG has stepped up its game and SS is nervous.

LG is the 2nd company behind Sony to challenge SS dominance in mobile.

Samsung is nervous because LG's series of 4 phones have sold a quarter of what their flagship phone has? Gimme a break. I'm sure they're shaking in the board room right now.

Do you understand what the word "momentum" means?

Things in tech are moving very fast and they do not stand still.

I have college degrees in psychology & linguistics. I also took quite a few physics classes when I wanted to be an engineer. So, yes, I know exactly what the word "momentum" means. Doesn't mean I agree any more with your statement.

LG just needs to win me over on software updates because the Optimus G is the real deal. Style, performance, UI, screen... best phone I've ever used. Please just don't screw me on Jelly Bean, id rather keep the nice UI features

I'm not a fan of the UI... It's cartoony in my opinion. Everything else is great, especially the quick memo feature.

Well the new optimus UI is a great improvement from its older Ui.. look at the UI running on Optimus 2x and compare it to the new ui in all the new LG phones, starting from the L series.

Not bad. Infact it is good. Where high voltage phones failed L series did cool.

Good job LG, I actually will chose an LG over an HTC phone now, there UI reminds a little of samsungs, and I was impressed when I saw the review for the Optimus G

I have heard of issues with the L3 model. So my advice...for a budget android phone try only samsung or sony.
