LG Optimus One Review – Do Specs Impress or Fail?

LG’s Optimus One packs the latest Google mobile services and Android 2.2 OS, but does it live up to expectations? While 3G.co.uk like the simplicity and mark it as one of the best touch-screen phones available from LG, they also remind us that is a cheap entry-level device.

Along with the Android 2.2 and touch screen facility, Optimus One also features sat-navy, three-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and descent battery life.

However, over at The Inquirer they are not quite as impressed with LG’s device. They class the looks and feel as average, with the control button layout all to common. Although the phone boots up quickly and the familiar Android allows fast smooth connection between homepages, web page downloads can be slow to load. Once loaded the chosen page became temperamental with scroll and pinch zoom functions occasionally unresponsive.

Battery life also failed to shine with levels dropping low enough to insist a charge everyday from normal usage.

To sum up, although the LG Optimus One is by no means a bad phone, it fails on a number of points. With the large range of phones available on the market, producing an average device really won’t cut it in this company.
