Retailing for just $99 through Telstra, the pre-paid Optimus L3 is likely to bring some much needed style to the budget end of the Android market. It's just a shame about that small, low-resolution display and the lack of Ice Cream Sandwich...

Although it is hard to overlook the loveable price tag, there are handsets out there will sub £100 stickers attached that overshadow the LG Optimus L3. A stubby, plastic device that is certainly not a grower, the Android 2.3 device is to be quickly...

The LG Optimus L3 is certainly cheap but there are alternative Androids around this price that offer superior hardware and software. There's no logical reason to inflict this phone on anyone. Kids, make sure your parents read this...

Available for £70 on Pay as you go, the Optimus L3 E400 is by far the cheapest phone in LG's current line up of Optimus Android handsets. A year ago this price point would have seemed astonishing, but price erosion on entry level Android...

The LG Optimus L3 is an easy to use smartphone that will suit many needs. It has a great battery life, can download apps and delivers a decent web browsing experience, but that doesn’t stop it being distinctly average in every other area. LG...

As with most recent small mobile phones it is touch, the only exception is the volume up and down controls and the on/off button. Just two visible connections the 3.5mm jack for earbuds and the micro USB to recharge...

A nicely designed, small and compact phone that works well in most circumstances. The problem is, the screen is horrible and there is nowhere near the value here that you'd get with some other budget handsets....

The LG L3 is cheap but doesn't really tick any other boxes. It has old software and an abysmal set of hardware with the all-important screen the worst of the lot. It's only saving grace is the good battery life but we recommend saving a few more...

The LG Optimus L3 is a budget phone with good battery life but a poor screen. Its chassis design has some neat features, but overall if your spending power hovers around £80: we'd suggest taking a look at the T-Mobile and Orange offerings,...

The LG L3 is a budget phone with delusions of grandeur, its sleek good looks are backed up by a goodly range of Android features. Unfortunately it's let down by its unresponsive screen and slower than expected processor.SpecificationsSoftware :...

LG unveiled its new L-style smartphone design identity at the beginning of the year, during the 2012 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Although it was the Samsung Galaxy Note challenging Optimus Vu and Tegra 3-powered Optimus 4X that grabbed the...

LG is looking to differentiate this budget Android handset by spotlighting its sharp, minimalist design, reflecting a consistent feel LG has deployed across the L-Style range. The L-Style series takes some of its headline design cues from the flagship...

The LG Optimus L3 is the brand's attempt to hit the budget Android market in style and, at the first hurdle, it manages to beat both the Samsung Galaxy Ace and Huawei Ascend G300 from the very first glance. The design is slick, palm-sized and even...

This is the first of LG’s smartphone L-series – and it’s a neat, well designed handset. The £80 price tag is very appealing, but corners have been cut to keep the price down – the display quality is not what it should be....

The LG Optimus L3 is a sleek-looking wallet-friendly phone, fine for social media and music fans, but the low-res screen disappoints....

All in all, there's no doubt that the LG Optimus L3 is one perfectly usable handset, with no serious issues to cause problems with its operation. We do like the fact that it looks better than your average low-end affair, and it actually outperforms...

International Review By All About Phones on 80

De eerste paar dagen dat we de Optimus L3 in gebruik hadden waren we erg enthousiast. De batterij gaat lang mee, het toestel is relatief snel en ziet er leuk uit. Het scherm was met zijn QVGA-resolutie een kleine misser, maar dat vergeven we de telefoon...

Avec l’Optimus L3, LG signe un smartphone d’entrée de gamme aux performances surprenantes. Son interface est agréable à utiliser, malgré un écran déplorable. Ceux qui souhaitent s’équiper à...
