Good: it is worth the money. though it is cheaper, it is way better than other cheap android phones in the market
Comment: this LG model have been poorly reviewed. the review is obviously biased. i guess the one who reviewed it is an LG hater. i couldn't even see something that's positive. better be really fair next time though
Comment: Be unbiased and never hold brief of any mobile company.
Good: More or less all is good.
Bad: Capacitative T.C., too sensitive, typing a tad dicey thing.
Comment: CNET, very rudely and unnecessarily , reviewed it, with grains of salt. The review is biased and not reliable.
Good: price, performance, looks, battery, built quality, call quality, features
Bad: it has hw for ics so lg could make an official update, otherwise in that praice category almost nothing
Comment: I realy love to see list of better phones for same price from cnet. It has snapdragon procesor with flash support, much better than galaxy y or pocket, and unlike them it has adreno 200 (enhanced). I dont know how it is in world of rich reviewers who buyng phones like galaxy nexus or s iii, so they thing all budget phones are for same money, but in czech republic huaway g300 is over a 1000 kc more expnsive than optimus l3 and when you have money only for budget phone every 100 kc is important. Besides lg optimus l3 is very good phone especialy for that money.
Comment: This is the only review I have read by Ms Lomas and will be the last.
Suggest you go to other sources for a more balanced and less biased report.
Comment: This site has a tendency to harshly critisize phones. I know it's a review, but every low budget phone CNET comes across, they seem to bash it exceedingly. Commenting on the screen resolution and the size. To be completely honest, when someone gets a phone, those things don't really matter to them, unless you're a business person or someone that works in the technical departments.
I think this phone is an amazing value for the money, and your biased review isn't really going to change my mind. I've come on here before to read a review on a phone, and it was so negative that I didn't want to even look at it, but when I bought it, I found that it was amazing and was nothing like what the review said it was.
Don't let the negativity stop you from getting what you want.
Good: excellent price excellent battery life great look and feel
Bad: sometimes jumps when u touch on screen
Comment: This phone is a great buy far better than review makes out i think they make galaxy y sound better and huawei g300 but iv tried both and i think this better not locked unlike g300 its very easy to use and has excellent battery and a bigger keyboard than th gal y well done lg i think u made a good cheap phone hera i recomend it no need to buy an expensive phone for general use i tried bigger phones but i think there to big to carry round and i never use them as they should be with there massive memory and all the things they do i find this type of phone more than ample for email weather few apps news games etc excellnt try it price is brill.
Comment: And one more thing dont compare it with higher Price coz this phone is a Low-End android phone. those who says this phone is so ugly , i think u didnt own this kind of phone u are saying bad words to make the readers dissapoint about this phone!!
Good: It is so good tottalyy this review is making me off, and this phone can run many HD games not like Galaxy Y that cant run like Temple run, and L3 have System Chip Snapdragon S1 Qualcomm MSM7225A thats why it can run many games,and it have better screen display than GY and galaxy Y run like BUNKERS! thats why it totally win vs GY and dont compare it with higher pounds!
Bad: The only bad thing is the Camera And the internet. and this phone is for pocket not bag!! if you have many things in your bag dont put it in ur bag!
Good: affordable, android, if rooted (you know what you're doing) - it makes wonders
Bad: camera, low resolution
Comment: On a tight budget and up for an entry level android phone? Yes, it's definitely worth getting.
