LG Optimus F3 Review

Interface and Functionality:

Well, there’s nothing terribly new with the experience here, since it’s the same LG Optimus UI skin running on top of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. Yeah, we’ll lament that it’s an older build, but it’s nice to see that the experience features some of LG’s latest enhancements – like the QSlide function that allows for better multi-tasking with some of its apps. Besides that, we’re presented with all the personalization and functionality of the Android experience that we all know and love.

In contrast to some of the handsets out there with ginormous displays on them, there’s a lot of adjustment needed to get used to the on-screen keyboard of the Optimus F3. Unfortunately, it’s intermittent unresponsiveness and cramped layout makes it tough at first, but after a while, we’re better able to cope up.

Processor and Memory:

Hardly imposing in this day and age, the dual-core 1.2GHz processor with 1GB of RAM in the Optimus F3 is ample for all basic tasks, but it struggles with more advanced operations. Needless to say, we wouldn’t associate processing prowess with this entry-level model.

Out of the box, there’s a paltry 1.24GB of free storage with the handset, but at least we have an available microSD card slot to help supplement its internal capacity.


Internet and Connectivity:

With the stock web browser, it struggles to handle rendering on the fly, seeing that delays are prominent when scrolling or pinch zooming very quickly. However, it’s never stalling the performance to the point of making it unusable, but then again, the Google Chrome browser is preloaded too, to provide us with an alternative option.

Who would believe a couple of years ago that a $29.99 priced handset can have nearly all the same connectivity options as some high-end stuff? Well, everything we’d want is found here, as it features 4G LTE connectivity, aGPS, Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, and NFC.

Once again this site rates a phone lower then other sites do. Phonescoop for example said it's a surprisingly good 5mp camera on this. Picking one of these up for metroPCS on Tmobiles network. It just launched there today.

So got this on metroPCS running on Tmobiles network. Don't go by the review here. Im really noticing that it depends on who reviews the devices here. I like how this site shows how potent the camera flashes are though. Anyway this deserved a higher score at least as high as the optimus L9 if you don't care abt the difference between 4 inch & 4.5 pick this up. Im surprised how fast lte is! Faster then my wifi. Fast shutter better 5mp camera then ones this site has rated higher. Overall great device with nice little extra features for a great price at least again on metro running on Tmobiles network. Sprint Virgin etc are not so good where im at as far as the coverage part. Anyway great mid range device as other sites have said.

Acctually its a pretty great phone. I've had one dropped it from like 7ft and broke so I'm going to get one today. And remember if service is bad in your area just flash it.
