Even if the L5 is low to midrange it's unthinkable to buy such a big screen phone with such low resolution. HVGA looks passable on screen size of up to 3.5" no more. This won't survive any contest with other droids in it's range unfortunately

I am sorry but the L7 and the L5 is a replica of the galaxy SII front .

The l3 is just a failed N9 design

The Vu is a buahahahahahahahahahahaahaha meme phone

The 4X HD is looks sharp untill you get to the back panel . Why all wannabe manufacturers position the camera in such a failed location just goes to show how much companies wanna be like crapple.

What's the PPI count of that L5? 144?! Are we in 2007? Stupidest phone ever, but none more so than those who'll buy it. Can't they just make a normal size(4" or smaller) phone with decent specs?

I'm a big fan of LG in every other sector of consumer electronics but in mobile phones they're woeful, I'm sad to say.

I'm not anti-Nokia, far from it (I happen to love their hardware), i await to see what Carla and the 808 bring but their recent strategy is lackadaisical when you compare with what they had 10 years ago combing exciting forms which were original and technology which was ahead of most at the time. Being first however doesn't mean the best, others will utilise that technology and refreshen it or better it tenfold. Ask LG, being the first with multiple cores didn't help the Optimus 2X.

But don't fret about innovations, we are promised Senseg's touch to feel technology which should be mainstream later this year as well as the next generation of advanced AI in voice recognition from Majel and Windows Phone. The potential of Bezel thin ppones brings back the sleekness of form factors. too

> In reply to Bill @ 2012-02-26 18:24 from 3J6d - click to readwell, i wasnt mentioning nokia but
they were one of the first to use gorilla glass, nfc, aluminium and polycarbonate housing (instead of simple plastic). not to mention the design which is a lot different (unlike samsung, htc, lg) and so on...
their cameras and screens are among the top, and they are still the only maker which caters to low end market. a market most makers have abandoned...
those may not be things you thing are important, but everyone is different.
but, im not saying they cant work harder too, i do like an option for buying a high end phone. most high end androids are too huge and not very battery efficient.

Over the years, that technical innovation will spread down to lower end spec devices.

nothing really interesting here
just bigger screens and more cores
innovation is sadly gone

I like L7 the most but I would take 4X because of the screen and specs because I love to play games and watch movies and stuff on my phone, and it is great for cheating on exams xDDDDDD

Nice products from LG. The problem now is what the competition will unleash. Forget all the other years,the frenzy at MWC this time around is cut-throat. Who will survive? Who is meeting their waterloo? This is the point geeks like me just stare and grin,as strongholds are torn down and footsoldiers become loyals.
