For most messaging enthusiasts, there’s nothing like clacking away on a physical keyboard while drafting up texts and e-mails. While the LG Optimus F3Q isn't banging on all cylinders when it comes to the latest in mobile technology, at $360 off-contract, it is a reasonably priced device that’s reliable to boot.
The 4-inch WVGA display has an 800x480-pixel resolution and
233ppi. Granted, this doesn’t make it the sharpest screen compared to
top-tier devices. For the most part though, the screen is excellent and
easy to view in sunlight.
At 4.82 inches tall, 2.55 inches wide, and 0.55 inches thick (122.43mm x
64.77mm x 13.97mm), the device is compact (in terms of QWERTY handsets)
and comfortable to hold. With the underside keyboard, however, keep in
mind that it’ll be heavier than your standard smartphone.
Both the 5-megapixel camera and the front-facing VGA camera
offer white balance options, a brightness meter, and a voice shutter
function that lets you operate the shutter by saying certain words like
"cheese" and "whiskey.”
