The LG Optimus L90 was my very first phone and for the time, it was definitely great for me. The camera took nice photos despite only being 5mp, it took good closeups, the screen may only be about 720p but it looked good to me, and it was a snappy phone for the time I had it in 2014-2015. However, nowadays I wouldn't recommend getting it since the Optimus series as a whole has been discontinued and from what I've heard it's a slow phone. If you want a good LG budget phone like the L90, get the G Stylo 3+ or the Aristo.
jj, 18 May 2017Worked perfectly for me for 2 years. after 1 year updated operating system and got a tiny bit... moreI´m so glad I am not the only one with these issues. After the last operating system update I need to get a new phone because my LG l90 got desperately slow:-/ Otherwise it worked perfectly for 3 years...
a big winner when compared to A3 2017:
- 2X battery life! (combination good battery capacity + true screen resolution)
- same performance with lower cpu heat (true screen resolution)
- built quality not decrease after 3 years (lower heat = more life)
Worked perfectly for me for 2 years.
after 1 year updated operating system and got a tiny bit slower
after 2nd year updated operating system a again and got much slower.
still for the first 2 years it was a very good phone.
Possibly the worst phone I have had in over 30 years - never got a good signaland if you tuirn off the wifi it is supposed to bet better but not a lot. Mine has been back to virgin who never addressed the signal error, fixed the faulty microphone but now won't connect to blue tooth and they have wiped their hands of it by using the excuse that where my keys tubbed on it is damage and it is rejected for warranty putposes
Eventually they told me of the wifi swith off but isn't that defeating the object of having it but apparently they tell me it has only one ariel hence the problem.
I have had it for around 18 months of Which I have had around 3 months frustrating use and have been using my old HTC HD7 which has a superior ariel which receives 4-5 strength compared with 0-1 on this pile of junk
Virgin offer the earth on giving you a better so called cheaper contract but with phones like this it id not worth it when you have togo back to your old one to reveive calls. Looking forward to June when my contract ends as I have allready discontinued the phone and can then disacontinue the equally frustrating supplier.0
heeello, 24 Nov 2016hello to everyone, I have bought this phone in 2015 May I think and with 1,5 years experience ... moreYou're right :)
I once had this phone and is not very good. (slow, camera is bad)
I had this phone for about 2.5 years, it has been working fine. once you flash the slimrom 6.0 from xda site, it works even better, very smooth, even though sometimes it will take several seconds to open large apps. I don't play a lot of games on the phone, but this phone can handle games like "i love pasta" just fine. the only downside is that the internal storage is only 8G. I haven't tried the tool from xda to partition memory to get more storage yet because I don't want to risk to brick my phone. I just don't see the reason to get a new phone.
hello to everyone, I have bought this phone in 2015 May I think and with 1,5 years experience this is what can I say about this phone:
Front camera is not very good, but it still can make some decent photos, front camera is very bad, it takes better photos only in daylight, but in room it's awful. Phone is not very fast, but it works good if you use simple apps like all social media apps(facebook, instagram, twitter and etc) because of ram issue, you have like 400mb of free ram. Battery is decent, better buy a powerbank because if you use this phone with internet very often, battery will run out in about 5-6 hours. Speakers is ok, not complaining and size for my hand is perfect.
So in conclusion I do not recommend this phone unless you don't need good camera and fast working, I don't know this phone price in nowadays, but when I bought it was 150 euros, so better save some money and buy a better phone, like lg x Power(in my country it costs with sale 180eu, without 200 +-) or something. Good luck!
I bought this phone although a different version but same spcecs(mins is lg optimus l90 d415) and it is a good phone and I like it. I bought it in July/August of 2015 and so far works... a bit slow when using apps and exiting apps it takes 2-4 secs for the homescreen to appear. Camera could be way better.. only 5mp back and vga front.. so yeah that kinda sucks. I am in love with the size of it.. 4.7" ... I think that is the perfect size... and it is a shame not many companies make great phones with powerful specs at this size. Sony did but it is so expensive I couldn't afford it. Batter is good too. I would give this phone a 6/7 out of 10 ... just bcas it is not very fast... if it had more cpu power and ram and powerful cameras.. I would give it a 8/9 out of 10.
This phone is the worst phone i've ever seen. Every hangs without any reason. Whatever you do do not but this shit..
Official information: LG L90 D405n Will get Nougat Android 7.1.2 @ December 2016.!!!!!
Ive tried now to deacticate every google process there is. Even google conract sunc, partner set up services and even play store. The respons of phone is unbelievable. Its fast. The reason of slow devices is actually googles own process. Their are not optimized at all for low and mid tier phones for old android version like lollipop. The ram management is actually very good on this phone without google process applications. I have steady 450 mb ram at all time. And its responsive. I will activate play store and services from time to time to update existing apps. Firefox with ublock origins works like a charm now.
Most amazing phone I have had. Bought it as a second phone for my work. Bought it in Dec 2014, so far (*touch wood*) no issues at all. Although it is dual SIM have used only one SIM. This has resulted in battery life of atleast 3-4 days (with switching data on & off when required) and using music player and lots of calls. Great stuff from LG! Keep it up!
My iPhone is on service so I'm using l90 once again. Disable everything with google name except play store and play services.
And i mean even maps, streetview, google chrome especially chrome. Alot faster. And using adblock web browser, here maps. It seems that everything which has to do with google is slowing old devices because they are packed with process and ads. Im using chromecats thats why i need play services but if u dont use chromecast u can even disable services and play store. Your phone is going to be superfast
I had it and it is the best phone i ever had.Sound quality in calls amd viber is amazing. Now i have m4 aqua and i am not happy with call sound like on this phone.
Ben, 29 Jul 2016I've had this phone for about 2 years now and it did the job for the first 6-8 months, but slo... moreI have a L90 405 that had been updated to lollipop 5.0.1 (and then swiftly downgrade back to KitKat), and have recently bought a Samsung S5 Neo to hopefully replace the 2+ year old L90. I have had the S5 Neo for over a month now, and things are not looking that good so far. Apart from the increased storage, the slightly improved camera and double the RAM, everything else has seen no real improvement. The S5 Neo feels much slower overall than the L90, and battery life is nowhere near what the L90 can achieve, even now that the battery it has is over 2 years old (it's the original it came with).
