My L3 lasted almost 15 days on stand-by (minimum talk time, everything disabled, including 3G). Excellent price/performance phone.
Video and audio recording (considering the specs).
Very good photos when lighting is good (daytime). Decent quality loudspeaker, max volume OK.
Good overall processing speed.
Very poor low light (night) photos - no flash too.
Fairly low amount of memory for programs, and some preinstalled programs that are not removable.

Justin, 18 Sep 2012I just want to know whether this phone will press buttons while I am on the ph? I currently us... moreHi Justin....to answer your question, i just played around with the phone`s sensors and even deliberately tried to mess with the screen but nothing happens.The sensors on the LG E400 are extremely sensitive and work even when i place the phone a Lil distant from the ears.So i don't think you will have a problem with this phone.Plus...the hold button located on the upper left plus its so tiny hence limiting the possibility of engaging it....looks like someone knew bout that problem when designing this phone.
Excellent performance, if you compared to the other phones in this range but you can't expect a better clarity of picture and sound. This will be a disappointment for the music lovers and could have improved a little bit on that.Other wise it is a perfect in style and performance. thank you for LG
Justin, I was wrong, it does have a proximity sensor (I can't see where they hid it, though), so that's why. You can't press buttons while talking.
I bought this phone after checking it out on gsmarena.com.
Justin, the phone will not let you press the touchscreen while talking. I don't think it has a proximity sensor, but the gyroscope/accelerometer checks when you hold the phone upright and turns off the screen.
If you lift the phone away from your face (for example to push the tone buttons, or end the call), the screen turns itself on again in less than half a second.
The device itself also appears fast, battery life is very good, and it recharges very quickly even from USB. The resolution is a pain point though, it's very low, but it turns out it's usually not a big problem when using most games/applications.
I just want to know whether this phone will press buttons while I am on the ph? I currently use the Samsung galaxy Ace and blackberry torch. When I am on a call, despite the sensors, I still somehow manage to press buttons during my call. Usually mute people or put them on hold. Does this ph have this problem too>
Been using this phone for a month..excellent touch interface,fast response and great resolution , bright screen compensates for and eliminates fingerprint smudges.Battery life is superb...upto a whole day of average use is reasonable. Low system memory compensated for by tha 1gb internal memory plus you can install apps to memory card.
Music player is of noble quality with excellent stereo separation via the LG stock earphones which are relatively loud.
Camera: Poor quality thats a thumbs down on this one...pale and offcolour thinking of upgrading to 10f see if its a software bug.
WiFi takes ages to go green but havent played around with it long enough to confidently crack it.
Gps runs smoothly
All in all great bargain for a budget smart phone!

Nicolo Conti, 14 Sep 2012I have another problem with my phone.
When I download some apps from the Google's Play Store,... moresystem memory is a memory for downloads...
its better way to move to internal memory or SD...
why does my phone restart all of a sudden? sometimes, when i press the cam,it restarts or whatever application esp games. did i possibly get virus when i downloaded applications? please help.
I was just browsing to research the LG e400 and thought people here would be interested in a few FREE pc programs that will take the task of managing your mobile contacts, pics, video, music apps,sims and backups.
Get them here
Nicolo Conti, 14 Sep 2012I have another problem with my phone. When I download some apps from the Google's Play Store,... moreYou don't actually need some apps to move your Apps to internal memory. You can move your apps only in internal memory unfortunately which has 1Gb capacity. Just go to --Settings> Applications> Storage use> Internal Memory. If you see a check box, click it; then click move to internal memory. Some downloaded apps are save directly to internal memory.
in order to put app on your sd card u must have an move2sd app or any similar to this u can download it trough google play but in order to move them you need to do this
1. First you have to download Mini Tool
Partition Wizard Manager.
2. Insert your SD card to a card reader and
open it on your computer.
3. Back up all your files to the computer
because partitioning will wipe your data.
4. Open Mini Tool in your computer. Locate
your SD card (be careful in choosing and make
sure not to choose the drive of your computer)
5. Right click and choose Delete.
6. Right click on it again and choose Create
New. Create "FAT32″ partition (This is where
all your media files will go. Be sure to make it
bigger than the 2nd part)
7. Select "Create as: PRIMARY"
8. Next, create an ext2/ext3/ext4 partition (if
you're on stock ROM, choose ext2). This is
where your apps will go. I suggest a value o512Mb or 1Gb would be big enough but if you
insist you can go as high as 2Gb.
9.Select "Create As: PRIMARY" (make sure that
it is both set to primary because it will not
work if it is not set to primary)
10.Click the "Apply" button on the top left
corner and wait for it to finish the process.
11.Put back your SD card to your phone and
switch it on.
12.Download and install Link2sd from Google
13.Open Link2sd. You will be prompted to
choose between ext2, ext3, ext4 and FAT32.
14.Select ext2. (or choose the kind of partition
15.It will say mount script created. Reboot
your phone now.
16.Open link2sd and if the message doesn't
show up, you succeded.
17.Go to Link2sd>Settings>check the autolink
(to automatically move apps upon installation)
18.If you already have some apps, select
"move to phone" then after moving select
"Create Link" (be sure to check the three files:
app, dalvic-cache and library files)
To check your memory, select "Storage Info".
This will show you the current state of your
internal memory, FAT32, and ext2 partition.
19.Now you're done and ready to install how much
amount of applications as you want
oh and by the way this is just a copy from some old post hope it works it worked for me cheers!!
