LG Optimus L5 E612 : Good for those who want big screen @12K. Others keep away!

I bought LG Optimus L5 E612 from Sulekha a month ago, only cuz it was not available in Flipkart. I share my experiance here for the prospective buyers..

1. User interface: Good (4/5)
2. Touch Screen response : Very Good (5/5) Swift maneuvers even with screen guard.
3. Display quality: Poor (2/5) A dead pixel appeared in my phone after a week.. may be only for me!
4. Display clarity: Poor (2/5) But this is budget phone and low resolution 320 x 480 is accepted :)
5. Build quality: Satisfacto...

Upgrade to the latest android version and The phone works much better

I bought it from a shopping mall and using it for one year.

This Phone has many good things like quality 3gs/WIfi but bad Call receiving sound quality but if upgraded to current version of Android 4.12 it works much better.
Its cheap and one of the very best android device. And it has a good manly
executive look.

Upgrade the android before using this.

A good deal worth 12k..!

What else do we expect from LG for a phone worth 12k..
It has ICS which is a boon as compared with the phone of it's range like SAMSUNG ACE DOUS n all are still stuck with Gingerbread...!
The camera is quite good..and user interference of LG-OPTIMUS is majestic.
Its a budget friendly start-up smartphone for the first time ANDROID users like me..! ^_^

Value for Money

Nice phone for the price. Although the price was about 2K higher when I bought this. Which was about 4 months before the date of this review.

Large display
Good touch
Android ICS
Nice look and feel
Decent battery life
Flipkart's service has been good.

Display quality is not great
Loading of apps and operations can slow at times because of the Sub 1GHz processor and not so high ram.
Pictures from the camera are not great under poor light. They are good under ample natural light.

The best in the particular price range!

Just and awesome phone! no doubt about that! Things that stand out:

1.Large display(4 Inch) which is just awesome to run apps and play games
2.4gb internal memory which is quite a lot
3.bright and good battery life
4.LG Smartwolrd is just wonderful
5.very smooth touchscreen
6.(Android ICS 4.0)

blah blah blah i can go on and on about this phone but now the disadvantages:

1.Only 512 mb RAM (not that big problem at all but cant play games
like temple run etc. especially games more than 20 mb...

Fantastic phone -Better than Samsung Ace and HTC wildfire

The phone is fully loaded with features and is much better buy than wildfire and Samsung Ace. Main feature is 4GB internal memory which allows you to store as many apps as u can. I have used a HTC wildfire and this product beats it in all count. Good pricing also. Amazing Big screen. Would highly recommend this phone for any android users

Simply Best.....No words about it...!!!!

I have been using this phone from last one month, n i bet on that, no phone will give you the feel as It is giving me.....I must tell you that, Before purchasing it (not from flipkart as it was showing out of stock), I waited for nearly one month....(mind it ~1 month)and my wife usually get annoyed as I was getting desperate on not getting this phone anywhere...

Now comes to its Pros...
(1) Sleek design....awesome look, plus a big screen gives you an extraordinary feel while holding that......
