LG Optimus L9 Review


LG Optimus L9 leapfrogs over the previous flagship of the line and is equipped with a 4.7 inch IPS display. Under the hood is a dual-core 1GHz processor with 1GB of RAM on board and a 5MP camera on back. A VGA shooter is on front. A 2150mAh battery keeps things humming and Android 4.0 is installed. A redesigned virtual QWERTY is included as is a new language translation app. The former is called My Style Keyboard and lets you change the placement of keys for easier one handed typing. In landscape, the virtual QWERTY splits down the middle to make typing easier. The latter is called QTranslator which translates different sentences and phrases from 44 different languages into 64 native languages.

This device is also known as LG P760, LG P768, LG P769, LG P765

Decent, Could Be Better
Phone owned for more than a year

This phone I purchased to give it a shot as a budget phone, and it did not disappoint me at all, though a few things could be better. The phone has a very modern and sleek design, a nice thin phone which fits in the pocket and a little bigger than other budget phones, and also a very nice display and decent 5MP cam. It came with very little internal memory which became an issue after a few weeks and also it did not function correctly with my Beats By Dre. The phone will overheat after 20 mins of usage during a call, so it can be a little uncomfortable. The cam quality is surprisingly impressive for being a 5MP cam and also it records HD video, which is pretty damn good. Overall it was a good buy, but memory being very cheap nowadays, could've been a little better.

Awesome Budget Phone
Phone owned for less than a year

This is a great smartphone that has a ton of the well-sought-after features of the more expensive phones on the market at a fraction of the cost. Nice large display and fast processor, it's thin and light for it's size. Easily picked up for under $100 no contract.

Great Budget Phone!
Phone owned for less than a month

I own the MetroPCS version of this phone and it's not too bad. The LG UI is a little complicated and quite annoying. The only thing this phone can improve on is the battery life and the camera, otherwise the L9 is great for everyday usage!
