Even the cheapest smartphones should have a screen of at least 3.5" by 2014 standards, 3.2 is evil and cruel :P
Anonymous, 19 May 2014Funny how this mediocre device has kitkat while my galaxy s3 just isnt capableYour S3 is perfectly capable, but Samsung is too lazy, and too dishonest, to provide support for a two years old flagship.
amshimokawa, 19 May 2014R$399, today it means US$180.Way too much for that droid
The idea of a very compact droid is intriguing, but completely destroyed by those ridiculous specs.
3.0 inch is best for mini smartphone and fits pocket well. We want 3.0 inch premium Mini Phone.
And except for The iPhone, LG, Samsung, Nokia, Motorola, they all are manufactured locally, still, it is one The highest prices in The world :(

RedZobe, 19 May 2014In my honest opinion, 3.2" is too small. 3.5" - 4" would of been enough. ... moreSurprisingly enough, the L1 and L3, 1st and 2nd gen, sell like water in the summer here in Brazil. And they have very small screens.
For comparison effect;
Like Renato said, here in Brazil a iPhone 5S 32GB costs U$1500 a Galaxy S5 U$1000 Lumia 1520 too
A MacBook Air 13inches with 256GB is almost U$4000
cozxta, 19 May 2014You didn't read it right.
It's R$, Reais, brazilian cash. Convert like that, 1 real = 2 dollars.I'm Brazilian. I know this maths.
What I'm saying is that gizmos cost quite a hefty price in Brazil, even considering the exchange. US$ 200+ for sugh a low level phone is too much.
You can have a much better phone for that money in EU/US.
Crap. I hope people think about buying a Moto E instead of it. LG is insane launching a lot of devices and all of them crap. Without G and G Pro (okay, Nexus) what they do? Crap.
aksrocks, 19 May 2014is the price $399 ?? its such a low end phone and the price is so high are you really serious ... moreYou didn't read it right.

About time the make smalker screens again. No jyst to get a high-end device with a 3.5" screen.
NFSHesham, 19 May 2014Feature phones are not gone , otherwise nokia would have been gone for a while , there are sti... moreHere in Brazil the problem is much worse, gizmos are way too expensive. For the price of a feature phone in Brazil you get a Moto G in the US.
That's the main reason many people here use feature phones. The other problem is older people, like my parents, simply don't get used to touchscreens. That's how I got my first smartphone, a Lumia 710, a couple of years ago. My mom got from the carrier when renewing her contract, tried to use, couldn't learn how, then she gave the phone to me. Just some 10 days ago, she bought another feature phone to replace her old one, because it was damaged, not because she wanted a new phone.
We must remember that most people under the 40s first saw computers no later than the 20s, but older people only saw computers way later. They have a very hard time trying to use anything more advanced than a VCR - even VCRs were impossible for many of them. I remember the only people in the family who would properly operate VCRs were myself and my sister.
Anonymous, 19 May 2014512MBs of ram is laughable. Lol.Entry level droid. Not so long ago, entry level droids would sport 128/256 MB.
Aycaramba, 19 May 2014A 320x480 resolution display is pitiable at this age of HD stuff.This is an entry level device. Anyway, for the SoC, RAM and GPU it has, HD res would crash at bootup.
aksrocks, 19 May 2014is the price $399 ?? its such a low end phone and the price is so high are you really serious ... moreIn Brazil we suffer a lot with high prices for everything. R$ 449 is ca. US$ 203. And that for such a low end device.
Moto G Dual SIM 16 GB sells for R$ 799 or ca. US$ 362. I know that for that money one can buy a Note 3 in Europe/US.
Funny how this mediocre device has kitkat while my galaxy s3 just isnt capable
