Review: LG Optimus F60 for MetroPCS
At just $60, it's hard to beat the LG Optimus F60. This phone easily competes with others twice its cost.
The phone's design may be minimalistic, but the hardware is made from good materials and is assembled tightly. I was impressed with the quality of the low-resolution screen, and signal and call performance were both quite good. Battery life runs about average.
Android 4.4 KitKat and LG's user interface work well together. LG's UI isn't as heavy-handed as others and adds useful tools, such as QSlide apps and KnockOn/KnockCode. The low-end hardware means the F60 won't be a media powerhouse of any sort, but the camera's decent performance was a surprise.
