LG Optimus L9 review: Living large

LG Optimus L9 review: Living large - read the full textThe Optimus L9 is the latest addition to the L-series and rightfully takes charge of a lineup that's known for attractive styling and wallet-friendly prices. It obviously made no sense to LG to start from scratch and the L9 is happily reusing bits and parts from nearly all of its fairly recent smartphone siblings...

The screen of this phone is just pathetic. The brightness is so low which makes the outside visibilaty so poor, I can't even see what's on the screen. I wouldn't take this phone when there're beter phones for the same price, the huawei P6 is a far better phone and it has a quad core CPU!

Hi guys, have this phone for a week now and this is my experience after using an HTC Desire S. The screen is good, no distortion of colours from any angle. Internet seems faster on Edge with Vodacom SA than the Desire S, after switching on 3G the internet just flies! I doubt there is Gorilla Glass used on the screen as my unit had a tiny scratch on it after one day of it being in my jeans pocket. Have a screen protector on now so I don't worry about that.
Battery Life: I get just one day of use with the screen set to. 50% and using 2G network. I believe this is because I have Whatsapp installed which keeps a constant connection open.
Haven't played much games yet, but. psx. emulator seemed to work okay. reading apps and videos play well. Will install games after I update to Jelly Bean.
Camera is the 8 mp insane does fine enough for me
Glad I bought this

It does not have the ability to transfer apps to memory. A very big headache for people who install a lot of games. Pls be careful.
