At First let me present myself to you
I'm a (LG Optimus L5 E612)'s user , let me tell you my experirment with this phone :
1- L5 has a nice display screen with 4" inches , but low resolution and 256000 colors that would present you a scratchy display .
2- L5 freezes repeatedly and you must do a restart twice a daily , but THE GOOD NEWS here that you can end these freezing times by updating your firmware to JB v4.1.2 , I do this update by using V20B firmware and i have now no freezing .
3- L5 has a 2.6 GB user available in internal storage thats should be low , you must use an external SD card to save your photos and videos from camera , and your music must be on external card , and internal storage Specialized for apps only .
4- L5's video recording is so bad at night even if you records in lighted place .
L5 has a good price , I bought him with 160$ at 1/4/2013 , now available in market at price 150$
Samsung Galaxy Duos = 180$
LG Optimus L5 II E455 200$
If you have any question please ask me :)
i bought this phone before 1 week and i have only good experiences....
i recomend it....

spz, 12 Jul 2013it a very nice phone, problem is, it doesnt have a front facing cameraI work on a mobile phone store, and regarding front camera, I don't know how it is in other countries, but here it's really overrated... People come here and ask for phones with front cameras... To that, we just ask "how often do you use a front camera?"
People end up buying phones with no front camera... Here, people don't use it... They might intend on using it, but they don't, so, me, personally, I couldn't care less it doesn't have a front camera...
the truth, 10 Jul 2013they r really good phones i have one and they don't brake easy mine went through the washing m... moreI do agree that it's a good phone, even better when you upgrade the droid version...
But how can you have yours for 3 years if it was released last year...?
they r really good phones i have one and they don't brake easy mine went through the washing machine got thrown at a wall dropped sat on and much more and it still works they work really well but they do glitch up a bit and pause but the one i had kept me happy for a 3 long years and that hard to do so i recommend it
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2013lg optimus l5 e610 vs. Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 which one is better!!!!!!!L5 is better
Most pathetic phone ever.. woks sad on Icecream sandwich...
updated Jelly bean yesterday in India- lets see if that works...
phone freezes, restarts , cant open two applications at same time.. phone stops responding.. browser is pathetic, games u cant play , phone calls u cant attend coz phone freezes in every thing,
i bought this phone, and its nice in the comperisn of other phones in this price list. its camara is not too good but it is good. but the main problem is the bettery backup its only 3 to 4 hours on net surfing........ that is the only problem..
I got this 6months ago and if it was not for the fact i paid £100 for it it would be in the trash .......
Out of the box it looks ok but thats where it ends making calls the phone freezes so you can not end the call i ether have to remove the battery or hold the on/off button to reset the phone now you might say this is one case but my wife has one as well I got a white she got a black and both are bad for it
Install an app like K9 for email and the phone starts to have more problems install more apps for working with your personal things and the phone starts to freeze on the unlocking stage
thats just the really bad things i find with the phone there is many more
there is one good thing for me with this phone the battery lasts days and i mean days i can charge it friday morning and not charge it again until sunday night with light/normal usage even a small anout of facebook serfing but that is the only good thing i find with the phone and I will be sure not to recommend or get another one
