LG L5 Review

LG is high on adrenalin as far as mobiles are concerned. Aggression is the right word and the weapon is the “L” and Optimus series of mobile phones. Maybe its to make up for the belated “presence” in the mobile phone market in the right sense of the word. LG has come up with interesting pieces of hardware served with Gingerbread and Icecream Sandwich, that kind of makes it spicy for the end user.

Recently I had reviewed the Optimus 4X, now its time for LG L5 Android Phone

The verdict

L5 is LG’s middle range phone in its recently launched Optimus series. The top being the 4X.
5 megapixel camera with LED flash is good. 4GB on board storage memory and support for expandable memory of up to 32GB. A display of 4-inch HVGA LCD display and 320 x 480 pixels is just fine for the phone in this category. It is not the selling point. The selling point of L5 is the price and the styling. Priced cheaper than Sony Xperia U and Samsung Galaxy Ace PLus by around Rs.3000 price is probably one of the selling points of L5. The styling is cool although the back panel could be better. This maybe a personal opinion but I personally prefer glossy back panels. The square shape is sexy and cool.


  • Picture Quality     3.5/5
  • Video Recording     2.5/5
  • Styling                4.5/5
  • Camera                  3.5/5
  • Applications              4/5
  • Pricing                     4.5/5

As a final word for those looking for a phone in the mid-range Rs.10,000 to Rs.13,000 and if multimedia demand isn’t of the highest quality on the agenda in terms of HD recording L5 is a good buy as you end up saving a couple of thousand bucks.
