The LG Optimus LTE is an entry-level Android smartphone which goes for affordability rather than cutting edge features. It looks like many other low-cost phones, is constructed of plastic and has a cheap look and feel. The 3.2 inch screen is bright but small, and it can be hard to read text if you do not have excellent eyesight. It also has a rather low 320x240 resolution, making everything look a bit grainy.
An 800MHz processor and 512MB of RAM do the computing, which is enough for a good user experience on Android Gingerbread. It does not compare to faster, more expensive phones though these lower end specs do help the battery life. The Optiums LTE can easily go a full day without needing a charge.
The Android operating system has been overlayed with Optimus UI, which is very basic but easy to use. The on-screen keyboard is OK to use in landscape mode, but the small screen size makes portrait mode a real challenge, even for people with smaller hands. The LTE version comes complete with 4G, making internet browsing much smoother. However, the CPU does not support Flash, which can be a problem if you view webpages that use it.
The camera is one of the weakest points of the phone. Photos the three megapixel camera generates are of very poor quality. Focus is usually off and exposure is inaccurate, usually leading to a blurry and dark photo. Video is no better. The Optimus LTE cannot shoot HD video and its footage appears choppy, blurry, and lacks detail overall. If you want to share a lot of photos on Facebook, you probably should look for a phone which offers a better camera.
