Review: LG Optimus L9 for T-Mobile USA
The LG Optimus L9 for T-Mobile is quite a good little phone. Aside from the less-than-prime materials used to build it, the L9 earns good marks across the board.
The display is solid and the battery life quite good. The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform runs smoothly and lets users control what they want. The stock messaging, media, and other tools are quite capable, and ensure that the L9 can compete with other smartphones when it comes to the basics.
About the only drawback I can put a finger on are the network with respect to data speeds, and the pointy tone of voice call. They were OK, not great.

For $79 on contract, the L9 offers a lot of usable features all while helping keep some change in your pocket rather than T-Mobile's.
