Hands On: LG L7, L5, and L3

L7 L5 L3 Comments  

The L3 brings up the rear in LG's recent announcements. Everything about it screams "entry-level." Not that there's anything wrong with inexpensive smartphones, but this is clearly a case of getting what you pay for.

The L3 is more compact than the L7 or L5, probably by 20 or 25%. With a much smaller footprint, it is easier to hold onto and carry about. The materials are not all that great, but the build quality was fine. I liked the feel in the hand for the most part.

The display is quite cruddy. At this point, it is hard to look at 360 x 480 displays and be pleased. The pixels are so obvious they nearly poke you in the eye. It's not that bright, either, and the colors are a bit muted.

The L3 also runs Android 2.3 instead of Android 4.0. With Android 2.3 and LG's older user interface, it felt a little bit slow and laggy.

That's it as far as LG is concerned.
