The LG Optimus L3 will be the next handset to be released as part of LG’s Android legacy. With so many Android phones available, will the LG Optimus L3 have enough to stand out from the competition?
With so many devices sporting plus sized screen, it makes a nice change to see a phone going in the other direction. The LG Optimus L3 will have a 3.2-inch screen, which should make it a lot easier to handle than a lot of the other bigger screened devices. The device is definitely heading towards the budget side of the market, and this couldn’t even be more obvious with the 240×320 resolution on offer here. It’s distinctly disappointing, even for a budget device.
There’s a 3-megapixel on the rear of the device, uninspiring once again, but for a budget device it should get the job done. For all the gaming you’ll want to be doing on your new Android device, you’ll find the L3 packing a 800MHz single-core processor, so don’t expect to be playing Shadowgun anytime soon. LG have also decided to release the L3 with the latest Android OS update, and instead it’ll ship with the aging Gingerbread update. We reckon we’ll see the phone receive an upgrade to Android 4.0 soon enough, however.
From the details we’ve seen the LG Optimus L3 isn’t a high-specced device, but it won’t be breaking the bank either. The LG Optimus L3 is expected for release in the next few weeks.
Sony has announced the launch of a new print and television campaign for their Sony Xperia line of smartphones.

The campaign – ‘Made of Imaginationn’ – kicks off on Saturday night with a 60-second advert. The advert itself has been directed by Academy Award nominee, Wes Anderson.

We review the new Sony Xperia S, the dual-core Android phone with HD 720p display. Can it match the best of the year’s new Android devices? Read on to find out.
Having ditched Ericsson, Sony is now forging ahead with a new range of Xperia handsets.
And while the Xperia S was undoubtedly designed when Ericsson was still in the frame, the specs and general demeanor signify that Sony has some serious plans for its Android phones.
The Xperia S has a very distinctive look, mostly because of the clear strip towards the bottom into which are embedded symbols for Home, Back and Menu functions.
We review the Prada phone, built in conjunction with LG. Is it a case of style over substance? Read on to find out.
LG has had a long relationship with fashion giant Prada; the first LG Prada handset appeared in 2007. But the pairing has not turned out new phones very often, and this latest is only the third in the series. It is a large format Android handset and, as befits the Prada name, it has a striking design.
The most immediately noticeable thing about this handset is the user interface which is almost entirely a black and white affair. The monotones make a great change from the splashes of colour that we are used to, and we have to say it’s really very appealing.
There are exceptions to the black and white styling which you notice as soon as you download or run apps.
