LG Optimus Me P350 Review
The call quality offered by the LG Optimus Me P350 is decent, with high volume in the earpiece on our end, since it doubles as a better than average loudspeaker too. The other party, however, said we sound a bit muffled, and the volume was low, so the microphone at the bottom is not the best there is.

The 1250mAh battery is rated for seven hours of talk time in 3G mode by the manufacturer, which is about average for an Android handset.

With the LG Optimus Me P350 the Korean company shows it will be focusing not only on innovative high-end phones this year, like the groundbreaking LG Optimus 2X or LG Optimus 3D, but will also pay attention to the low-end.

It's a budget-friendly phone with a youthful character thanks to the soap-bar shape and colorful back covers, which are sure to attract the attention of many, especially knowing how skilled at marketing LG is.

Still, we wish the screen had a tad higher resolution, not to mention the sluggish interface, and lack of  Adobe Flash support, but we can overlook those, considering the price range. Our main complaint, though, is that the camera should have been a lot better than what we have now - weak, even for a budget handset.

There are quite a lot of alternatives in the budget niche to the LG Optimus Me P350. The Samsung Galaxy 5, for example, is lighter, with identically-sized 2.8ā€ display. and offers better camera, but runs Android 2.1, which is not a big deal, considering that the Optimus Me P350 doesn't support Adobe Flash anyway. If you are willing to go upstream a little, you can grab the LG Optimus One, which will grant you a bigger screen and better camera. The HTC Wildfire offers the same low resolution, on a larger 3.2ā€ screen with a 5MP camera and HTC build quality.

Software version of the reviewed unit: LG-P350-V10b
