The LG Optimus One is not a top-end phone, nor was it designed to be. If you're expecting some sort of dual-core wünderphone, look elsewhere.
The LG Optimus One is described by LG as a great choice for first-time smartphone users. In this writer's opinion, the Optimus One deserves a better lead than that. Let's break it down.
The LG Optimus One is an Android-powered candybar that offers a 3.2 inch, 320 x 480 pixel capacitive display which, while not top tier, is certainly capable, large and easy on the eyes.
Add a 3MP camera with auto-focus, video record, MP3 player, FM radio, full internet browser and native YouTube player, and you have a phone that can keep pace with the diverse and immediate needs of many users.
The Optimus One also features location-based services including navigation via A-GPS, memory expansion via microSD (Up to 32GB), Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, 3.5mm headset jack and more.
With a talk time of up to five hours and a standby time of up to 450 hours, the LG Optimus One is a great choice for first time smartphone shoppers, and then some.
