Review: LG Optimus F3 for Sprint
The LG Optimus F3 is a solid little device. It certainly outperforms its $29.99 price tag (as long as you don't mind signing a contract). It's small, light, and easy to use. The screen looks good and battery life was exceptional. Voice calls were decent, as was the F3's signal performance.
The software features of the F3 all functioned perfectly. LG's user interface additions to the Android operating system make plenty of room for user customization. Items such as the QSlide apps and QuickMemo firmly put LG's stamp on the F3. Lastly, the 5-megapixel camera surprised me with its solid results.
If you need an inexpensive smartphone that offers a lot of bang for the buck, the LG Optimus F3 is worth your attention.
