LG Optimus L3 E405 Review

The mobile craze is gaining momentum with every passing day. It has been projected by the technology group Ericsson that till 2017 there will more mobile gadgets on earth than human beings. The companies are struggling hard as well to win over the mobile competition and to increase the profits more and more. Among the top mobile phone manufacturing companies, LG is also the one which is trying to win over the race of mobile phones.

What LG has invented now?

LG has invented a new gadget with the name, LG Optimus L3 E405. The most striking thing about this gadget is its dual SIM functionality which is why this mobile is also known as LG L3 Dual. As people feel convenient in having a mobile phone with dual SIM so the companies are more inclined to incorporate this feature in every new gadget. Also it is a positive thing that a reputed company like LG is introducing dual SIM gadgets otherwise market is replete with Chinese brands having 2, 3, 4 or even 5 SIM functionality.

The Haves

A gadget which has a touchscreen facility and which is run by Android operating system will certainly be liked by the users who have natural likeness for dual SIM facility. Swiping back and forth, with the help of a smooth touchscreen whose capacity is magnified by 800 MHz Cortex-A5 CPU, is really an enjoyment in itself. But for Android operating system such a gadget must a have minimum of 512 MB RAM to fully enjoy heavy capacity Apps. This is a setback for LG L3 E405 that it has only 384 MB RAM which may not be sufficient for a working quickly and easily specially for Apps as I mentioned earlier.

The body is the same like other mobile phones of this category; no new addition is given in the body style of this gadget. Simple and sleek body in black or white color is available for the buyers.

The Have-Nots

It is a fact that every company tries to give maximum features but the price restraint is the big hurdle in this way. Similarly, LG has given limited options in this phone as it can be purchased in lesser bucks. Therefore, we only see a 3.15 MP camera and 384 MB RAM.

The Last Words

The last words for this mobile are in its favor as according to price it is equipped with sufficient features. But in Pakistan, as we have discussed earlier, LG has been totally unsuccessful in winning the people’s confidence. So if a user purchases it, he/she should be aware about the market value of this mobile which may not be high if you will have to sell it after using it for few months.
