Mobile World Congress 2014: LG's first Firefox phone

1:17 /

MWC gave us a chance to check out LG's first attempt at a Firefox OS device.

I'm Jessica Dolcourt with CNET here at Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona looking at a bunch of Firefox OS phones. This one is the LG Fireweb. It was announced and launched in one market, Brazil, and that was in October, but this is the first time we're seeing it. This is LG's first Firefox phone. It runs version 1.1 of the operating system. It has a 4-inch screen with a pretty low resolution of 480 x 320 pixels. However the camera on the back is pretty hot for Firefox phones. It's 5 megapixels and there's a flash. The device looks kind of cool. On the back LG has actually gone to the effort to put some sort of holographic checkerboard so it sort of shimmers a little bit when you move it in the light. The phone is compact, easy to hold in one hand, easy to operate and I also like that it has this physical button here at the bottom which makes it much easier to get home. The other thing I will say is that this is running on a 1 gigahertz Qualcomm processor under the hood so it's not a very fast phone and your data speeds are really gonna determine how fast it is to use. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET taking a First Look at the LG Fireweb.
