LG Optimus L9

The Good The LG Optimus L9 has a snappy dual-core CPU, 4G, Android 4.0, and a 1080p HD camera.

The Bad The Optimus L9's battery drains quickly, it has a poor audio speaker, and it comes preloaded with too much bloatware.

The Bottom Line The reasonable $80 price tag, dual-core processor, and Android 4.0, make the LG Optimus L9 a reliable midlevel handset.

An affordable Android 4.0, dual-core handset

It has a better camera than the Optimus L5 and a faster processor than the L7, but with its prepaid price tag, it also won't break the bank.

In addition, the handset comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
