First Look: Sprint's 4-inch, LG Optimus F3

1:25 /

The LG Optimus F3 from Sprint features a 5-megapixel camera, Android Jelly Bean, and a 4-inch IPS display.

-Hello, everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET and today we're gonna check out the LG Optimus F3 from Sprint. The F3 is a compact 4G LTE smartphone that has a 4-inch IPS display with an 800x480 pixel resolution. It runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and features a rather zippy 1.2 gigahertz dual-core processor. On the back you'll get a 5-megapixel camera that's capable of shooting full HD 1080p video along with a VGA camera on the front. The device runs on a 2.46 ampere-hour battery which will give you a reported talk time of up to 16 hours. Some additional features include Q-slide which lets you view certain apps while simultaneously accessing the rest of your phone. Though given the handset's small screen, I don't know how beneficial this would be. You'll also get NFC, up to 32 gigabytes of memory via a micro-SD card slot, an LG signature note-taking app QuickMemo. And for those who may have some vision impairments the phone is also loaded with TalkBack by Google. This is a text-to-speech feature that reads back to you device features and notifications. -Phone messaging. -Currently the phone is available for free after users sign a 2-year agreement. Again, I am Lynn and you've been checking out Sprint's Optimus F3.
