LG Optimus Elite Review
Voice reproduction was fairly natural. The battery has been ever-so-slightly bumped from 1500 to 1520mAh, but thanks to software optimization the Optimus Elite is able to squeeze out 7.3 hours of talk time, up from 5 hours on the Optimus S.
The Optimus One line of phones set the bar for entry-level Android devices, and the Optimus Elite is a worthy successor to the Optimus S. It improves on the winning formula in just about every category, and while it may have shortcomings it is still the entry level phone to beat in our opinion. It is not going to stand up to a heavy graphics load, produce images like the HTC One series or deliver the speed of a quad core processor, but for those on a budget looking to run some basic apps and browse the web the Optimus Elite will not disappoint.
LG Optimus Elite Review:
- Solid build, thin design
- Good battery life
- Nice performance for the price
- Poor screen resolution
- So-so camera results

This is quite possibly the lowest low end phone you can buy at the moment. Sprint should have priced it at free instead $30 on contract.

I just got one. 129.99 at Best Buy. Work phone HTC Vivid. The elite is good entry phone, quick, lots of mem for apps and such, good signal and clarity. no quirky stuff yet. Very happy with it. Oh, and I got it on Virgin Mobile. 45 a month unlimited with 3G web.

I've dealt with many low end androids and the elite is by far the sleekest and smoothest operating android under 250 bucks Also it seems more powerful than it actually is as it runs n64 and psx emulators better than my moto razr.

Wow I have this phone about 6months now and I hate the battery life. Everytime i use it for regular texting or picture texts, it eats up all my battery life & I have to keep charging it. With such a smart phone, I believe Virgin Mobile should re-design its battery to last longer for general usage. I only use it for messaging back & forth to my friends & send picture texts & also receive picture texts & my battery does not even last the whole day. I always have to charge it before I go to sleep. Menu apps is great, looks is good, not fancy or luxury looking like u spent lots of money on it. I like the speech to text feature. But I would not recommend this cell to anyone because it's too much money for a failed battery.
