Not really that good...,
This review is from: LG E400 Optimus L3 Black (Electronics)
LG Optimus L3, I would say is a good entry-level smartphone for its price...
At a first glance, this phone looks fairly heavy. Even though this device is robust and insensitive to damages, it is surprisingly lightweight and feels comfortable to the hand. The average 3,2" screen has a mediocre resolution which rarely doesn't respond to touch. The battery life is ordinary and with light everyday use it will probably need charging every 2-3 days. However, battery drains rapidly when surfing the internet or listening to music!
One of the major disadvantages is its memory which holds approximately 5-7 downloaded apps (depending on size). If your main e-mail address is other than Gmail, than I would recommend you look at a different phone as the pre-installed app "Email" doesn't work. Another problem would be that this device isn't compatible with several applications on Google Play, due to its small screen and the tiring 800 MHz single-core processor which will also affect your browsing experience. Lastly, the quality of the camera is horrendous even though you would probably expect something decent of a 3.2 megapixel camera. As if that wasn't bad enough, there is a lack of both flash and front-facing cam.
To sum up, I would say this makes a good first smartphone but in comparison to other smartphones, it is a failure! However, you can't expect too much for what little you are paying...
