LG Optimus L3 Review
0. phoneArena posted on 17 Apr 2012, 09:25
As you probably know, the new L-line by LG is style-conscious, so the L3 is actually a very interesting product, as it should be both inexpensive and good-looking at the same time. Yeah, we've seen dirt-cheap Android smartphones alright, but what about dirt-cheap AND good-looking Android smartphones? The L3 will now show us if such kind of concoction is possible or not...

Before everybody starts bashing this phone think about this, a lot of people would probably choose this phone because in today's economy nothing is easy to buy because of insane prices. This phone may not be the greatest in the world but it would fit most peoples needs. Certainly not mine though as I am an avid gamer with various emulators installed that i doubt this thing could possibly handle.

Unfortuantely teens and cheap adults everywhere will be toting this cheapo droid and going to the store every 3 months to complain about how bad the device lags and freezes, Everyone should do themselves a favor and if they want an LG device buy a washing machine or a tv, leave the mobile phones to a legit manufacturer!

Interesting comment. I could make the same observation about Nokia and its C1 . . . but isn't Nokia a legit manufacturer?

the carrier ought to pay the user to get this POS. I mean, this is a "smart phone" right? so that mean you will, say for ex., use at&t and pay at least say, $20 month for a data plan x 24 months= $480 you spent on this trashy poor excuse for an android phone. now if they allow you to get this for free and come up with a new market for data plans, say inbetween feature phones and smart phones with REAL screens and spec's, say smart phone jr. plans, then it would be accetable. but this is nothing more than a glorified feature phone and should have a feature phone priced data plan to accompany it.

this phone wont come to at&t as contract it will be like go phone no contract or it may not even come to USA where u have to buy a costly data plan wiht a smart phone.
it will go to countries where carrier have no contracts

I really start having an issue with Ray S. and his biased reviews. Any time he reviews an Android phone the final mak goes 2 points down what it should. But what gets me really angry is his lack of accuracy when doing reviews. This sentence: "it costs just a bit less than majorly-superior phones like the Sony Ericsson Xperia neo V and Xperia ray" it is plainly FALSE. It costs HALF as much as the Ray and ONE THIRD than the Neo.
LG L3 should be in leage with the "SG Y", the "SG mini" or the "Huaweis ideos X3"!!!
Comparing it with the Sony Xperia Neo is like comparing a VW Mini with a Porsche and saying that you should buy the Porsche...
And what´s more: the "Samsung Galaxy Y" got a 7 in phonearena and this one that has a 4! The LG L3 is better in many things, like more RAM, internal memory or the camera. Does Ray S. has his own way to give reviews different from the rest of the reviewers or what???
PS: in fact the LG optimus L7 costs as much as the Neo, not the L3 not even the L5.

it is very apparent that there is a LG hater disliking every pro-LG comment here.
i mean, if u hate LG so much why do u even bother reading this article?! go read OTHER articles which has NOTHING to do with LG. if u want to read an article about LG and comment, DONT put hate comments like ''LG should not make phones'' or ''Samsung and HTC is so much better than this crap'' or ''LG should concentrate on making TVs and home appliances and leave phones to proper manufacturers''. if all you can say is that, i just wanna ask. WHY ARE YOU READING A LG ARTICLE/REVIEW IF U HATE THE BRAND SO DAMN MUCH?!

I don't hate LG personally. I had a G2x and loved it

i'm reading cuz i work in the business and actually have to deal with the idiot that buys this peice of crap and comes in and wonders why it doesnt play videos like a droid razr or a nexus ..... Thanks for your concern

I don't care if u work in the industry or not, the fact is, u still shouldn't be saying stuff like this. Esp to say LG is not a legit manufacturer is just down right rude. Every company, deserves respect. Just like how every human deserves love
15. u-suck-more posted on 19 Apr 2012, 04:32 1 0
plus, the fact that u are working in the industry means u should not be biased and put personal prefences aside when recommending phones

I personally think LG is a good manufacturer i just typically don't buy their products because the of UI

Am using this handset from last one week
as a budget android phone i feel better with it ??
And What the heck is the problem with UI ???
19. u-suck-more posted on 15 May 2012, 07:13 0 0
my point exactly! the UI isn't as bad as what ppl claim it to be!

I don't Know why Phone Arena trying to sign LG L3 as a bad Handsets with out any pros ???
am using this from last week, its sure that its Display clarity not so much good.but for the price range is there any phone that you can which comes in Amoled ???
the processor is fab (800 mhz,cortex A5,MSM 7225A) and the touch interface is cool and the design is Sexy
its multimedia options works with out memory card which most of the handset doesn't have
for 8000 Indian Rupees its a great handset....

Are you running flash on this phone? If so, how can i do this?
22. KINGJUAN27 posted on 18 Jul 2012, 02:06 0 1
It's quite obvious that LG copied the sharp-edged/corners design from Sony! LG was in a hurry in releasing its L series (the cheap L3 was released ahead) to overtake Sony's release of new breed of Xperia (although Sony announced their Xperia S earlier than LG's L3) that's why the L series' specs are sooooo crappy! ughh..
23. u-suck-more posted on 18 Jul 2012, 04:29 0 0
u ought to do ur research! LG dint copy! and jesus, the L series is for the low end and low mid range market! how stunning are e specs going to be?! and the LG newchocolate bl40, which came out in 2009, also had this design! so LG didnt copy!
24. KINGJUAN27 posted on 19 Jul 2012, 04:56 0 1
but that doesn't change the fact that L3 is an awful low-end smartphone! ;)

It is the worse mobile anybody can purchase,
Resolution is very very poor.
Only 150 MB space to install applications so no use of 1 Gb internal memory.
GPRS/3G speed is very slow.
user interface is very Bad, LG has modified many features of Android and made it a dull mobile.
Even local companies mobiles are better then this.
Waste of money!!!

Great, what phone you can get it for the same price?

I just got this phone. It seems okay, but I want to run flash on it. I can't seem to get it to work. This website said that flash works. Can anyone with this phone tell me how to do that? It seems to be a problem since adobe is no longer on google play. This is my first smartphone. Thx, Turk

I have something to say about all this ranting and raving grow up. I thought I would be able to find out on this site about why my internet isnt working when i have tried everything i can think of. But I doubt I would even find an answer at all.
