Having a smartphone not only removes the need to wear a wristwatch, but it is also quite handy to quickly jot down some information when a piece of paper and pen are out of grasp. LG gets the frustration that some have over the issue, an hence, alongside the new Optimus 3.0 UI overlay, they introduced the note-taking application QuickMemo.
The QuickMemo app first found its home in the LG Optimus 4X HD, but it looks like LG is ready to bring the app to a wider audience. As announced by the company, QuickMemo will be heading to the entire L-series smartphones, which for now include the LG Optimus L3, L5, and L7. The update is already being [...]
For those who aren’t keeping track of what LG Electronics, otherwise known as the other South Korean manufacturer, is up to, the company is bringing the full lineup of its affordable Android phones, the L-series, to Australia.
This means the LG Optimus L2, Optimus L3, Optimus L5, and Optimus L7 have all packed their bags and headed down under. Let’s start from the bottom of the phone pyramid and make our way up.
The first two from the lineup are the LG Optimus L2 and the L3. Both phones come with similar specs, such as a 3.2-inch QVGA display, 800MHz CPU, 384MB RAM, 1GB internal storage, 3.2MP rear camera, and 1,500mAh battery. The Optimus L2, however, comes [...]

This is why it’s a little surprising to see Bell selling a decent Android 4.0 smartphone for only $200 unlocked.
The LG Optimus L5 specs include a 800 Mhz Cortex A5 processor, which should be significantly faster than ARM11 (by 20% or so). The good news is that it seems we’re finally getting to the point where we can get rid of ARMv6 processors in our phones, and we’re moving [...]
For years now, LG hasn’t been a big name in the Android smartphone world, in a race dominated by Samsung, Motorola, and HTC. But this year has shaped up to be the year of the underdog, with companies like Huawei, ZTE, and LG releasing legitimate contenders for the title of best Android smartphone of 2012.
Apart from its high-end lineup, LG also introduced the Optimus L series in February this year, at the MWC 2012. The three device series includes the L3, L5, and L7 smartphones, which were expected to debut in Q2 this year.
Just barely keeping with the stated timeline, LG today announced the release of the Optimus L5 smartphone in Europe. The device will [...]
