LG Optimus S (Sprint) review

For a low cost phone that manages to differentiate itself from the other Smart phones on the market, the LG Optimus S mobile phone from Sprint is one of those that has what it takes to turn heads.  It’s bluish grey color and the all over soft touch paint makes it lovely to handle.  The soft touch paint means that there’s little need for you to have a skin on the phone as the soft touch paint is far better than having a glossy phone that scratches easily.  Why cover your phone in a skin anyway when you can show it off!

LG Optimus S

The LG Optimus S mobile phone is in a league of its own when it comes to entry-level phones.  Normally, you can tell which of the Smart phones is entry level.  They usually look clunky, miss out on the top gadgets and ooze cheap and cheerful.  Not the LG Optimus S though.  You will love the generous 3.2-inch capacitive display.  At a resolution of 320 x 480 and 16 million colors, this phone is even comparable to the HTC Evo at around four times the price.  A plus for the usability of this phone is the ability to see the display in bright sunlight, which is usually a tough one for other phones in its price bracket.

The LG Optimus S runs the Android operating system and at the bottom of the phone, you get the usual Android buttons to take you to the Home page, allow you to search, go back a step and open the menu.  Other Android phones sometimes only have 3 buttons, but having the main 4 there is very handy.  Rather than being bits of touch sensitive glass like some of the other Smart phones, the buttons on this phone have a decent click to them when they press, so you can be sure that you have actually pressed them.

For all the features of an Android phone and an expensive looking image, the LG Optimus S is the one for you.
