Screen is so bad it is a shame, because everything else is good...Sony Miro will be better i think, waiting for it
Hey guys. I am a proud owner of lg Optimus l5:) it's a month old and to be Frank the phone is superb. For the price it does justice. The phone seemed to be slow initially but now that I have rooted, I am using rom toolbox pro. After using this its blazing fast! A superb display colors are just like amoled :-D the low ppi can be tackled by setting lcd density to 145:) use screen adjuster to reduce brightness to 75% now u won't believe the display is similar to Sony. Pple may not accept this but try for yourself:-D after over clocking battery backup 1.5 days:-P
should I buy the black or the white one? I like both of them very much and I cant decide which one to choose!
i'am interested in L5 4n. can anyone please tell me how about the camera Options in this phone? is it like P500?
coz iam crazy with Macro option in P500.
Dear all, I have just bought L5 10 days back.I am just highlighting some plus and minus points of this set.
1.It has a 4inche screen which you can not get from any other good companies in this price.
2.It is user friendly, believe me this is my first android phone but I find very easy to handly this mobile.
3.sound quality is good and speaker is good, it is clearly audible when u r talking to somebody(if tower is ok).Although ear phone sound is not excellent but it is decent.
4.Al the android applications are supported no problem at all(HD games may cause problem).ICS4 and 800 MHz cortex makes the phone smooth.
5.Camera is good.It is providing a 5MP with LED flash in 190 EUR, really good.
6.Battery back up is not a issue. 100% charged battery if used moderately can give a 28 hour backup.
1.The main drawback of this phone is 4" screen with a 144 ppi. That is why may be the display is not as good as sony or samsung.
2.No HD video recording and also there is problem in resolution while playing HD video.
3.No front camera.
4.Internet is not very first.
5.A little weighty and bigger for the regular pocket.
But in my opinion in this price what lg is giving is better than enough.At least I am happy with my L5.Any further suggestion is welcome.
gachis, 12 Oct 2012samsung galaxy ace 2 is much better than this LG l5how
Good phone for the price, but a lot like L3 with big ger screen. L5 screen is reeeeally bad though, such a shame...
62sawa, 11 Oct 2012guys im planning to buy a great pone and im chosing between this or samsung ace 2, help guys tia!If the bigger size is not problem for your pocket, I recommend LG L5 -- readability in sun is much better and price is a killer (I have both phones at home).
ya obviosly ace 2 is better Dan l5, but both are not worth for buying,
1)huge draw back of l5 is they have given only 800 mhz processor,camera could have been better,divx player available but hd video recording is missing,atleast 720p video recording has to b installed,
2)huge draw back of ace2 is only 800mhz processor,having hd video recording but divx player missing...
both phone need 1ghz processor to run smooth... or else its waste of investment on those device
dear guys, my L5 model is just 3 weeks old. i changed from black berry 8520 to LG optimus 5. initially i found this very good but as my usage goes up i found the few issues like speed has come down drastically. i need to wait for 4 -6 seconds to open the page after the click . page rotation also works very slowly. someone who was watching me working in my cell commented that this phone is very slow. even the page rotation is slow. after waiting for sometime i use in portrait format instead of waiting for the screen to rotate. Battery backup is very very poor. i dont hear much songs or play games. i use for regular calls and emails with occational internet access. if this is corrected then this phone is value for money. camera quality is poor. and additionally the music player will start automatically once i plug the ear phone. the application has no provision to switch off. sad...myself.
Every thing is working properly in this phone.
The screen is very good, size, colors and contrast are perfect and forget about the viewing angle it is not a public phone.CPU is powerful enough to carry out daily tasks smoothly.I really love this affordable gem
