0. phoneArena posted on 15 Nov 2010, 10:47

LG is serious about their Android push, and the Optimus S is a very nice device. Like the Mazda RX-8’s tiny 1.3L engine, the Optimus S does a lot with a little and delivers smooth, quick performance. At $50 it is ...

People are LOVING this phone! Especially for the price point! It really cant be beat. I would ALMOST dare to say its better than the Hero. It has android 2.2 and is hotspot capable!

It IS better than the Hero. It has twice the RAM (Optimus has 512mb), The Optimus has a faster processor by 82mhz, similar build quality, higher quality screen, AND Android 2.2.

Just bought this phone and am totally satisfied!!! Stated in the article that this phone will not "steal sales" from EVO/Epic I beg to differ. Was considering both and decided to go with the lower price point. Wish it had a flash for camera but otherwise no downside. Check it out!!!

After 3 phones on my 5 line account died I managed to strong-arm Sprint into giving me 4 new Lg Optimus S's for FREE on my expired contract existing account when I threatened to make a move to Verizon....(I cancelled one line upon renewal of my contract for 2 years) No rebates no activization fees...no BS. They even overnighted them to me!! They arrived as promised the next morning. And they absolutely ROCK...I have been using Windows mobile phones for 6 years or so since my first Sprint PocketPC was ordered way back when. My most recent was an HTC Touch that just refused to die...until it did...with no warning whatsoever. What a difference a fantastic OS can make! Google, LG and Sprint really have a winning combination going here. High Praise goes to everyone that made this little miracle come to market so affordably. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Sorry so long...BUT...for the first time in year I actually excited about a new piece of hardware...and it's cell phone...Who would have thought it??

I played with my cousins optimus s, for a 600mz processor its really fast(partly due to froyo)! put my samsung vibrant to shame. The screen was crisp and felt nice to text on camera was good as well depending on how much light there is.
Want a cheap but really good smartphone? Get this.
