LG Optimus L3 misses the mark

With its pokey software and low-res screen, CNET UK pans the LG Optimus L3.

Back in February during MWC 2012 , we first caught a glimpse of LG's line of midrange Android handsets. The L7 boasted the best specs of the L-style family (it has a 1GHz processor, 4.3-inch display, and 5-megapixel camera), while the L5 followed close behind.

Recently, CNET UK reviewed the most entry-level member of the series, the LG Optimus L3. It has a 3.2-inch screen with 240x320-pixel resolution, and unlike its bigger brothers, runs on the outdated Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS. In addition, it has a 800MHz CPU and a disappointing 3-megapixel camera.

Though it isn't available in the United States, the L3 sports a cheap $109 price tag under a pay-as-you-go plan.
