L-Series handsets -- Optimus L3 (3.2-inch display), Optimus L5 (4.0-inch display), Optimus L7 (4.3-inch display) -- were first introduced at the 2012 Mobile World Con-gress (MWC) with the unveiling of LG's new design philosophy and followed by the most recent Optimus L9 (4.7-inch display). L-Style incorporates timeless design with fine details that further differentiates LG's mobile devices from the competition. This design philosophy is comprised of five aesthetic elements: 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.
"This milestone demonstrates the importance of delivering smartphones with stylish design, comparative size of display and enhanced UX features," said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company. "Whereas other manufacturers are putting all their eggs into a one-size-fits-all phone, our strategy is to develop mobile products for all types of customers according to their individual needs and lifestyles."
The L-Series lineup of handsets also offered large displays and LG's proprietary UX features such as QuickMemo and QTranslator. QuickMemo allows users to capture and share a note with others using just a fingertip while QTranslator instantly and accurately translates words as well as entire sentences into 64 foreign languages.
All the models in the L-Series -- Optimus L3, Optimus L5, Optimus L7 and Optimus L9 -- are available in over 50 markets worldwide.

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

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.
23. g2a5b0e (Posts: 2117; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
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
9. PapaSmurf (Posts: 7700; Member since: 14 May 2012)
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.

I like the LG UI. but nature UI is just more polished.

I am proud to say that, My LG optimus L5 is one of the 10 million L-series phones :)
15. Thephonegeek (Posts: 118; Member since: 22 Nov 2012)
Not bad. Infact it is good. Where high voltage phones failed L series did cool.

Good job LG. hopefully update is on the way too.

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.
