First Look: LG Optimus M (MetroPCS)

1:29 /

While not as advanced as the Optimus handsets on other carriers, the Optimus M is still a great entry-level Android phone for MetroPCS customers.

As though as the LG Optimus T for T-Mobile, the Optimus S from Sprint, this is the LG Optimus M from MetroPCS. I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor for cnet.com and this is a first look at the LG Optimus M from MetroPCS and it's a very basic entry-level Android phone. On the front is a very nice 3-inch display here that is very bright and colorful as you can see. On the back is a 3.2 megapixel camera lens. Compared to the other LG Optimus phones, the LG Optimus M is not quite as robust in terms of design and features. As you can see, even though it's nice and slim, it's still a little bit rough around the edges, a little bit retro-looking. However, it does come with Android 2.2 and it also has a slew of multimedia features like GPS, Bluetooth and more. Because this is a very basic entry-level android phone, it does not have portable hotspot tethering, which is quite a disappointment. It also does not have built-in flash in the browser. The LG Optimus M is available for around $230 for MetroPCS, but that's without the contract. I'm Nicole Lee and this has been a first look at the LG Optimus M.
