Take a closer look at the LG Logos (pictures)

This budget smartphone won't impress your friends, but it's cheap and runs Android Lollipop.

LG Logos

The LG Logos is available for just $99 on US Cellular, without a contract. That low price doesn't get you very much, but you the phone does offer pretty good performance.

The Logos runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, the latest version of Android. That isn't too common on a phone at this price point. The phone also runs LG's Optimus UI -- it's a fairly heavy modification of Android, but not especially onerous.

The Logos has a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 1-megapixel front-facing camera. Neither one is very impressive.

You'll charge the Logos from the Micro-USB port on the bottom. Note the curve: it's incredibly subtle, and I'm not convinced it serves much purpose.

The 2,100mAh battery lasted for an average of 9 hours and 45 minutes on CNET's battery drain tests.

There's a single speaker on the rear -- works in a pinch, but you'd be better off sticking to headphones.
