LG Optimus L3 Hands-on review

LG Optimus L3 Hands-on review
LG Optimus L3 is the budget model in the new "design-conscious" line. Like the other two models, it is available in either black or white. In both cases, it looks sexy, but is really boring when it comes to features. Just a look at its 3.2-inch screen is enough to convince you of its low quality. It is a QVGA unit, which means nothing better than 240x320 pixels. Excited? We guess you are not. However, the build quality matches the design and is excellent for a budget model. 

Although we can't fall in love with the L3, we say "bravo" to LG for bringing good design to low end models. We hope its price will match the features though. 

You can also check out the high class models of the series, the L7.

If low end price mean s this is around say 120 euros then Lg will have a good seller on its hands and its an entry level smart phone with a very attractive design. After all this is much better looking than the galaxy mini and that sells by the bucket load

320 by 240 px in 2012? Absolutely useless phone!

Low end phone. So don't expect a highly spec'd unit. Screen resolution is just enough for its screen size.

I agree, I think it's an attractive phone for being low end but I still wish that it had a little higher pixel density.
