I bought my L5 a year ago. I thought that it was an OK phone for its price range. Of course, you can only discover its real features when you use it.
Battery life is OK as long as you're not using any apps which drags it down.
Response time is not good. It usually lags. I find myself using Cleaner app almost all of the time to clean out cache and running processes which slow the phone down.
Some apps, like Trivia Crack, are almost impossible to play because they hang.
LG removed the option to move apps to SD, so heavy apps like WhatsApp take up most of internal storage. LG should review this, since installing one game will practically leave you without any free internal space.
Screen sensibility is quite fine.
The camera is OK for daylight pictures if both you and your target stay still for around 2 minutes when taking them. However, my old LG KP570 takes even pictures than this L5. The camera has a flash but I advise you against using it since pictures don't come out well. It's impossible to get a decent picture under poor lighting conditions.
I try to get the most out of the phone by disabling unused predetermined apps like Maps, Facebook or games, which cannot be uninstalled.
I do not recommend this phone unless you only use it for phone calls, sms and listening to music/radio.
I am using this phone for 1 year. Buttery beckup great...if you are person who wish to use this phone only for phonecalls or sometimes viber, this phone is perfect. If you are younger person, you wish front camera, faster phone, tis phone is not good idea. Luggy sometimes very much.
couldn't edit my previous post that I posted my video of youtube with old channel.
now it's my new channel and the video is available here:

akshay, 12 Apr 2014D phone is too slow i m bugged up the camera quality is very poor Lg is just a retard company ... morefor the price there's no phone with better camera than this L5. Sony Xperias and samsung with the same price or a little higher like Galaxy Fresh are more sh*t than LG L5 E610, and E610 came out in early 2012.. is LG a retard company ? LG is the first company without being associated with google is rolling KitKat for many newer lg mobiles with good prices and good specs, no sh*t mediatek's or broadcom's like samsung devices or some sony or some huawei.. I had L5 E610 and used others phones and E610 is better with features, gaming and heavy apps aren't for this phone. but for daily use like sms and calling it's more than enough and battery lasts near 10 hours of screen-on, nobody others competition phones with the same price has battery like this.. I bought new LG L7 II for 119€ and I am very happy with it, best price and others competitions offer 150€ or 200€ for phones with ridiculous CPU or camera.. LG mobile is far one of the best, like LG L90 and G2 are best phones for it's price.. and Samsung offers same specs or a little weaker, but still more expensive.
