Hands-on with the LG L-Series II

Hands-on with the LG L-Series II

At last year’s Mobile World Congress, LG unveiled its L-Series of affordable Android smartphones. This year they’re beefing it [series] up to make them better (read: faster) sing along with all new apps. The updated LG Optimus L3, L5 and L7 all run Jelly Bean out of box [PROVERITI], providing users with enhancements this version of Android brings to the table, including Google Now, enhanced push notifications and Project Butter improvements. Let’s quickly go through each of the phones, shall we.

LG Optimus L3 II

The smallest of the three devices is also the cheapest model and in that sense it’s made for the first-time smartphone buyers and folks who don’t want to pay a premium for a better camera and bigger screen. It fits nicely in the hand and you’ll have no problem carrying it around in your pocket. You will, however, miss the extra screen estate, especially when watching movies.

LG Optimus L5 II

A slightly bigger device, it too is small by today’s standards, but its screen will make for a more enjoyable movie-watching experience. The L5 II also comes with a better hardware and is overall more pleasant to use (than the L3). Still, we like the L7 more, which is kinda expected from geeks like us.

LG Optimus L7 II

The “big” brother of the series sports a decently-sized screen which was considered “huge” only two years ago. Today, however, the situation is different and except if you’re an iPhone convert, you’ll want an even bigger display. As far as I can tell — and I spent few moments with the L-Series — this phone will sell more than the other two. It offers quite a bang for the buck and it’s not just made for folks who want their first smartphone.

Overall, we liked what we saw from LG’s 2nd L-series and we’ve no doubts they’ll move millions of these. Here’s the gallery featuring 5 images per device (except for the L3 which got only 4 images)…
